  1. I'll get a graveyard and a huge freaking dragon and a massive worm, but I'm really psyched by the hobgobs because 1) it shows how much reaper listens, 2) the drawings look great and I think they'll be versatile figures, and 3) there is even a lady hobgob!

  2. It's going to be difficult for me in the next few months as I await my heart surgery.

     

    Nearly all diets also recommend physical activity, which makes sense. But with my busted heart valve, I feel discomfort as soon as I have a brisk walk, so I'm at an elderly level of activity and mostly stuck at home. And the real problem is that my appetite is still the same. I eat but with limited calorie burn.

     

    So now I have to find food that's filling, satisfying, and won't cause a calorie overload. I believe I have to look into high protein, low carb to manage my weight in the meanwhile.

    I've found pretty good success feeling full eating lots of greens/veggies (lettuce, beans, peppers, etc).  Use some oil to cook them so you can get some fats too, but keep away from commercial salad dressing which is very high in sugar.  Lots of spices or herbs and you can have really tasty meals.  Protein is filling but it is also very calorie dense.  We'll often make up a large volume of veggies as a salad or stir-fry and then put in one bratwurst or a few ounces of steak cut into chunks to feed the two of us.

     

    Good luck, we're routing for you.

  3. When I saw the Oz stretch goal on my little phone screen I wasn't very excited, but I just looked in hi res and the tin man, scare crow and monkey are awesome!  The lion is cool, he's likely to end up sitting on my monitor at work next to ape-x.  Dorothy seems a bit creepy.  Over all, I'm very happy.

     

    This is moving along at a pleasantly rapid pace, I just keep hoping some random round number will reveal another weapons arsenal.  Surprise stretch goals are like crack.

  4. Mmm, pasta. I made fresh pasta by hand and topped it with homemade pesto on Sunday, and I hadn't has pasta in many months. The best thing about making your own is that the number of calories you consume is offset by the number it takes to make it!

  5. We've had a few situations in a fantasy campaign where I'd use that big gun.  Our games are pretty much limitless where as my collection of minis is merely enormous so I'm happy to use the really cool Victorian cannon as a stand in for more fantasy or sci-fi artillery.

  6. Modding bones models is super easy; easy to cut, easy to paint, easy to glue, doesn't fall apart under its own weight, cheap enough to have a backup, etc.  The weapons packs are great!  I bought a few of the metal weapons packs, but they're actually pretty expensive (compares to the bones minis I'll be modding them with) and I'd rather have everything in plastic anyway.
