  1. There was no shortage of amazing Fiasco adventures this time around! Yes. Oh, so much. If I hadn't promised not to, I could fill a couple thread pages with dialogue from one of three games of Fiasco that were going on Saturday night... SHHHH....rule number 1 of Fiasco Club, remember? Weirdly enough, aboard the plane on the way home, an elderly lady looked out the window as we were coming down at Denver, and remarked on the "lovely little hills" in the distance. I looked. She was describing the Rocky Mountains. I can only assume she was from Tibet or something... Should have retorted with...
  2. I see there isn't a sign marked "BEWBS" in there. I think if there was one, you'd have to put arrows in every direction.
  3. Looks like you even got a date out of this whole thing too *wink*. Be careful, the wife is currently suffering from post traumatic con disorder. She turned to me last night and was like...."I miss having everyone around, and the minis, and the hanging out at tables, and the faisco....etc." Besides the swag, you really can't bring the con home. A date? with who. I've got a date? what will i wear? I haven't been on a date in years. I was poking fun at your lunch date with MadMouser. Texas BBQ brisket is flippin good so I'm actually pretty jealous...

  5. Once the wife and I got home from Reapercon and after we slept and unpacked, we got some painting in last night around 1am. The bones Skeleton Archer was on my list of stuff I wanted to paint so I did a quick 2 hour "speed paint" of one just to see how it would come out. I got to sit in on one of my wife's private lessons and got some great second hand info that I wanted to try out. So here goes: For spits and giggles I decided to paint my wife's Paint Poker Tool, because the first second I saw it, it whispered "paint me" very gingerly to me. Here it is: Before: After: When I finished I had mentioned to the wife that I wanted to paint the other one red to commemorate the Captain America 2 release earlier this month and her immediate response was "I WANT TO PAINT THAT!!!" I had been secretly hoping she would blurt out "HAIL HYDRA" but she didn't =(.
  6. I can hear him now Bonwirn...."but that mummy sarcophagus looked so yummy"
  7. Mmmmmm...Monty Python style space soap operas...
  8. I'm not sure buglips saw this...i would be mortified if I saw a skinned goblin head used as a dice bag...if I were an actual goblin myself.
  9. DW would still fall under Sci-fi though so that could work.
  10. Forgot to mention it was my fifth painted miniature to date.
  11. My sleepy wife says "OMG thank you!" and skilled.
  12. I found a limited edition Sophie body and matching wings but couldn't find the hands bearing the present. Gah! Glad you could save something. At least u found the wings. My wife couldn't find them and ditched getting the Sophie cuz she found less than you did.
  13. The wife and I were mostly at Corporea Corner. She was one of the few girls with corsets and the one everyone could recognize as Miss Melons due to her "huuuuuge tracks of land". I was easily identified by simply standing next to her dressed in a brown coat, red bandana, light brown vest, and brown cowboy hat. You could identify her also by looking for the bouncing afro.
  14. We are totally gonna have to find a Star Trek corset for you now...
  15. The wife and I enjoyed the doc's company very much! I mean he saved my wife from zombies for pete's sake.
  16. I am so glad I decided to stay late to host this. I'm fairly certain this will be a regular "unofficial" event from here forward. If you do, then you will have my wife and I there with you.
  17. The "Fiasco After Dark"'s were some of my favorite moments of the con. As far as the Office Building catching on fire...well you can thank Bryan for that one! Our story pretty much spiraled out of control on the tilt (mostly his fault) pretty quickly. I'm not sure I can post about the story because I was forewarned that what happens at the con stays at the con. I would love to give a retelling of our story for everyone to see it and use it as an example but I would need his blessings as it is more adult oriented and may be moderated....Although, if I had one thing to say about our story, it's that Dr. Bedlam likes big butts and he cannot lie...
  18. While i was patiently waiting for the wife to finish her classes at Reapercon, I decided I wanted to paint something and took him from my list of minis to do. I wanted to practice with big armored dudes so I figured his was as good as any. Later on that day, the news of the Bones LTPK came out and I thought it was ironic that I was painting the same mini that comes in it. I ended up actually going for more of a villainous look with him instead of the more traditional blue/gold look that he had in the kit. I grabbed one of the bases that came in the Reapercon swag bag and decided to properly base him as well (my first attempt at basing). I also tried a few dry brushing techniques and my first attempt at black lining as well. All in all I'm happy with what came out so here goes: Front: Back: The wife says I'm improving and I think so too but I'm a few dozen minis worth of experience behind her so I have a lot of catching up to do. As always C&C is always welcome.
  19. I had my preacher go to the church as well. They told me that i should have done what you did and just burn the church down so your actions lived on in infamy lol.
  20. LK...I just pictured you engaging the wasp in final fantasy style combat (ff7 battle music playing in the background). You run up and attack the wasp with foam warhammer in hand and do 20 damage. The wasp dive bombs you, but you dodge. You attack and crit it for 60 damage and it bleeds. It casts Haste in desperation and unleashes a flurry that nearly defeats you. You drink a nearby mountain dew brand healing potion and, with a full limit bar, activate your limit break known only as Swing Madly (it is very effective). The wasp takes 300 damage and turns upside down, falling to the floor in a mess of wings. The FF victory music plays as you twirl the warhammer, collect your vendor trash "wasp wings", and level up!.
  21. Siri, you only have one option...burn the house down immediately lol. Edit: I too murder bugs without prejudice and USUALLY immediately. Sometimes there comes a "lady-like" scream from me and sometimes running is involved. I'm secure enough as a man to admit that.
