    Reaper at Origins 2019?

    I asked on Reaper Live a while back because they stated they weren't going to be there, but the initial event sheet had them listed. They said something to the effect of they were still sponsoring the show, or the paint n take, can't quite remember. Unfortunately, Origins released details on the paint n take on Facebook this week and it looks to be wizkids models and Vallejo paints exclusively. Although they do have some sort of contest going on for models painted in the paint n take area. That's kind of a drag because there were always a lot of smaller miniature companies in the paint n take area that may not get that exposure now. I was a bit disappointed in the Origins lineup too this year. I always enjoy the speed paint competition even though I never made it past the second round. And I save my quarters up all year for the Reaper gumball machine. I also read somewhere D&D was unlikely to have the presence they've had the last couple of years and that CMON may not be there at all. I mean, I'm not going to quit going because of this... Origins is literally a 5 minute bike ride from my house and we go every year. But if folks are pulling out like this I may only go for a couple of days in the future instead of the full show.

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    I didn't think this warranted a show off thread so I'm sticking it here. In the bones 4 core set there's a bunch of those fence toppers. I have no intention of buying a fence so I decided they needed an alternative use. I occasionally like to paint a mini and then leave it somewhere in public. Sometimes it's as simple as hiding it in a potted plant at the bar, sometimes I might superglue it to something. It's my little contribution to keeping my neighborhood weird. So I realized those fence toppers would be good to paint up and leave around the area. I've seen a couple of the remains of ones I've superglued down after they've been destroyed in the removal process. So I decided to start sticking magnets in these so when someone snags it they have a nice little magnet to take and maybe show people. Hopefully it makes someone happy for a brief time. Anyhow, enough rambling, here's the first of the fence toppers I've left around...

    Oh wow, I did not realize that was still on. Watched it a few times in the first couple of years. It was funny enough. Laughed pretty hard when I saw some of Lagrange's Theorem on one of the whiteboards in their apartment because I was studying that in relation to an economics class I was taking at the time. Never found the time to fit it in to my limited TV time though. Good for them. Hopefully it was an enjoyable finale.

    Thanks. The instruments are from a reaper accessory pack: 03032.

    I can't really think of a game I decided to never play again after just one attempt. Closest I can think of is Total War: Warhammer. The Total War franchise is one of the only video games I've enjoyed. But the Warhammer games in that series just turned me off. Maybe it's because I've never gotten into the tabletop version of the game. I played through once as the dwarves and didn't have much fun. So I tried a couple of the other factions and just couldn't get into it. Haven't had any desire to play it since. I'm still playing most of the other Total War games years after their release though.

    I have a cat who would do this. Probably more than once. My dogs and both of the other cats are terrified of him. Berserker is an apt description.

    These are all great everyone. Thanks!

    I assure you, any music they manage to make will not be beautiful. Maybe to other goblins, but not to anything else with ears!

    Roleplaying is typically a good brain stimulizer. My group wrote our own system 20 or so years ago that we pretty much use exclusively. So whenever I want to do something different I have to come up with a new ruleset to do it. Which can occasionally be a real challenge. In terms of board games the most challenging right now is Arkham Horror 3rd edition. You don't start the game knowing how to win. You have to uncover clues in order to figure that out. There are multiple scenarios and each one has a different end goal, each just as hidden from players. We've played it 3 times now and have yet to win. If you like playing games at expert level right out of the box, enjoy cosmic horror, and have 4 to 6 hours to learn how to play then I highly recommend it.

    That is just fantastic. Awesome job.

    No, no, no, just no. That's the kind of talk libel to make our 19 to 21 year old female interns feel creeped out and then never work in this field again. Now this... I might just start saying that. I've got a bit of a midwestern drawl and it could be fun to see if anyone works up the nerve to correct me.

    I've painted these goblins 3 times now. Once as per normal, once with guns, and now as musicians. Got 3 more sets left from Bones 4 and am looking forward to modifying these 3 more times. I'm still trying to come up with a group name for these crazies.

    Not necessarily lately, but so many dumb things... Getting the jar of quinoa mixed up with the jar of steel cut oats and making chicken, roasted vegetables and Italian seasoned oatmeal was good for a laugh. The homemade cider incident required a step stool and a paint scraper. Installing the faucet backwards was, I am told, dumb (it works and no one else had to crawl under the sink so in my opinion its perfect). Rubbing an eye while cutting peppers is an unfortunately common dumb thing. Seriously, the list just goes on and on.

    Unfortunately, the combination of uncommon species with a specific set of requirements and disappearing habitat aren't doing this particular variety any favors.

    It's new intern day! Just met the new batch my bosses hired for the year. They seem extremely young this year and more than just a little bit nervous. They're in safety training most of this week and then I've got a fun day lined up for them where we'll be going to a private chunk of preserved forested wetlands to look for an endangered species of Equisetum. That should be fun enough to encourage them not to run out on us. But then the following week we're visiting strip mines. Hopefully that doesn't scare anyone off.
