    You know you want em!!






    The drumsticks are removable charms & the shoes smell like fried chicken. We really need for this virus to be gone so people can go back to normal  lives again. :lol:


    They might be short lived in a house with dogs or cats..... 


    Another note, boba is turning out well. First batch didn't go well as the water wasn't boiling and the boba balls were too small. I also want to try making a better dough as this one was way too crumbly. Good way to spend time though rather than getting my eyes melted by hours of YouTube. :lol:

  2. @TheAuldGrump Hah, it took me until reading @Unruly's comment about it being a mask that I realised what it was. Funny stuff.


    Been doing some 40k stuff, did first sculpting in a while. Reasonably pleased with it, it's hair of a decapitated head so doesn't need to be extremely neat. Wanted to sculpt the neck today but stuff got in the way.


    Tried to make boba today after a pretty bad first attempt. Turned out reasonably well, need to boil it for a while. Will try to cook more and make a syrup come tomorrow to drink while I study. Also, watched To All the Boys: P.S I still love you today with some friends digitally. Not a bad movie but certain actions taken by the protagonist were well... neither the most moral nor the wisest ones. It was nice to have some friends to watch it with and take the heck out of it.

    Make up a ridiculous magic item! What does it do? Where do you find it?

    The ring of Swampheck, which when tapped thrice, summons forth a horde of swamp creatures, each with their own talent. For example, Terry Greenhop, a dragonfly, is a skilled jazz musician. He plays on Thursday and Friday nights, I hear. The swamp creatures return to the ring after a week or when they feel like it. 


    You ask your local magically inclined frog very politely, and they will guide you to the ring's location. Maybe offering him a scone will help.

    Have you done any baking recently? What did you make and how did it turn out?

    If not, what is your favorite baked food?



    I tried some Hokkaido milk bread a few weeks ago, it turned out decently. Should make it again. 


    I adore cinnamon rolls and cookies that are chewy. Mmmm.

    Audio content! Are there any new podcasts or radio shows you've been listening to that you'd like to recommend to people? 

    If not, what's the strangest thing you heard on the radio while traveling?


    I've been enjoying the Smosh podcasts and Olivia Sui's new podcast Fish Cheeks. They're good and mature people and listening to them talk about stuff is pretty interesting and passes the time well.

    Have you painted any of the transparent/translucent bones minis? What worked well?

    No, sadly, and I think it'll be many months before I can get my hands on some.

  6. Ordered an Iwata airbrush yesterday, hope it arrives soon. Will make it really convenient to get hobby stuff done. 


    Moreover, online schooling has apparently led to some of my peers' loss of sanity, as evidenced by watching a dear friend cut her bangs on a private video chat while she was supposed to be working..... Life always surprises you. Doesn't it?

  7. Hey everyone,

    First model painted in my War of the Roses collection. This is from the Mercenaries box which I've had for ages now and only now getting them done with my other models. This was a warm up miniature as I've been out of painting for months and I'd want to test my skills. I'm not dissatisfied with the finished miniature, it's not incredible but the end result is solid for the tabletop. Moreover I've managed to get him done in a timely manner and made a small improvement to my unpainted and unassembled miniatures. I've only painted about 6 or so miniatures in my 5 years in the hobby so any finished model is a new feeling haha. Lots of paint on the pants of the model that got smudged on there by accident. 


    It's unbased, but I'll be basing them in May when I get supplies for that. I'm done with hobby purchases until then. The halberd tip kept breaking throughout painting the model, the way it's attached is horrid. It will definitely snap unless I superglue it.


    The cloth was a fun experience, and I definitely skipped some steps. I lost patience at some stages but the end result ended up well for the tabletop. Enjoy the finished miniature! Feedback always welcome. 






    Thank you for reading.

  8. Hey everyone! 


    Thanks for the comments! Quick update. Put some more models together, these are foot troops. A little kitbashing's been done. 




    I've painted my first model of the year (Bringing the total I've painted in the hobby to a total of about 6 in five years.. :unsure:

    Here's a front photo, more images in the Show Off link below. 





    Cheers! Badgers.


    Stay safe everyone! Drink lots of water!
