    Yep, the old boxes from various warhammer units have proven useful not only as reference art, but as a home for my minis of that era. The part of the process where it becomes apparent that 90% or more of the idea in my head shall be unleashed upon the world.

    On my old laptop I have the Hans Frankter, haven't tried injecting it to the chromebook yet. I'll have to track down more of Manfred Klein's work for the day when I join the modern world and invest in a printer. Back when I used to draw gig posters, I worked from the main rulebook as reference, put down three pencil lines with a ruler, then drew the letters in between in measured increments. Outlined and filled them in with a Sharpe, which made the original look a bit rough, but the copies came out great.

    Math of Sigmar....that's going into my file of schemes and plots now. Perhaps a small booklet with the lettering done in the Mordheim font with astrological and alchemical symbols taking place of the numbers, and a chart explaining how the answers will change depending on what house the moon is in. Make a red stamp on the cover, "Approved by District 115" and leave a few where the local teachers gather....

    This is why everyone foolish enough to invite me to their wedding gets a toaster. One of the four slot ones. At the wedding, the recipiants are usually less than enthused with this....a month later I'm usually told it was the one of the few gifts that actually proved useful.

    Nope, I also immerse myself in the Ps4, occasionally I attempt to write pulp horror fiction, and I also develop new conspiracy theories pretty much on reflex. I suppose gardening would also qualify, although it's not been as relaxing as it's made out to be thus far. As to which is #1, it rotates. Currently the garden has draining all of my energy so I suppose it might be considered such at the moment followed by the Ps4. I've slowly been working my way back towards the painting though, the new supplies having provided a bit of a morale boost, I just need to get the desk reorganized before hopefully picking up on my shamefully neglected WIP threads.

    Ladies of Death by Glitterwolf

    I'd go for number one, with her face looking downwards, she appears to be giving instructions to the wolves, or even with her hands outstretched is telling them there's no more treats...

    Any bears that wander thru are more inclined towards the pulled pork from Smokey's down the street, the Illuminati still hold a grudge against me concerning our battle over the donut sticks from the gas station 17 years ago, (they were dressed like contractors, but it was obvious who they really were, their boots were too clean), and I'm not sure whether the local Mall Ninjas ever rescinded that pesky "kill on sight" order from 1998 when I added a crushed toy school bus to the Christmas train layout, so I avoid it on general principals. G.E.M. nailed it, the Responsibilities attacked. I managed to get some more of the sod pulled up. The death toll now stands at two hand shovels and an edging tool lost to the roots of the tree grown into the fence. But it's almost a third of the way done, and the repurposing of the downed telephone pole into corner posts went much easier than I'd hoped. Eventually I'd like to have a mighty wall of cinderblocks capped with flat stone, but I've only got three more of them so lower reinforcement will consist of whatever I can utilize from the Strategic Wood Reserve and the various logs I've gathered from either trimming the pines or the front of the shed. The goal is to have the first section done tomorrow so the first planter can go in, as they're getting big. The seedlings under the watchful gaze of Darth PotatoHead. The two planters in front are about a week behind the third one, so I should have time to get more space cleared out for them.

    Department of Acquisitions and Enablement, the Second

    At long last I managed to invade Plainfield and the FLGS contained within! Iron Maiden, Stocks, Cage and Chains, Rack. These will be used when I get around to a display for the Witch Hunters. Executioner and Torture Assistant, more reinforcements for the Witch Hunters, although the Assistant might end up as a Dreg for the Undead. Two Wheeled Cart and Kegs which will be used with the Coffee Dwarves. Mushroom Folk and Treant, destined to join with the fairy garden gnomes on the mantel. I seem to be subconciously building an Angry Nature warband now. Mounted Skeleton and Drangus the Duckman. One for the evergrowing army of the Undead, one more for Angry Nature. Basing supplies, something I've been putting off for far too long. Autumn themed foliage, which I'll be needing for the undead, the Pumpkin Army, and to spruce up the Treant. Corn stalks for the Pumpkin Army terrain. 1/35 scale weapons, which seem to scale ok with 28mm minis. Always good to have on hand.

    Getting To Know You — May 2019

    Mid April I wandered through Silver Springs State Park for the first time since before moving to Austin. I was pleasantly impressed with how little the place had changed since my last visit. It was one of my regular haunts since grade school and perhaps the only place in the county that I have found unchanging which is a comfort considering how subtly off everything else seems to be. Also the accidental dunking my discman recieved in the Spring itself seems to have actually healed it somewhat.

    Contrary to popular belief, I have not been abducted by aliens, ghouls, or irrate townsfolk. Between unexpected curveballs thrown by life and the escalation of the Lawn War, I've just been too distracted to get much hobbying done and far too on edge to be pleasant company so I exiled myself for a bit. My last comment awhile back was a very ill concieved attempt at humor and when that was pointed out it was a wake up call that there were some things that I needed to get sorted out before I felt comfortable returning. I was over the line and my apologies to those who were affected. On a more positive note, I've managed to get a decent start on my 1:1 scale Pumpkin Patch terrain. The Big Moon and half the Jack O'Lantern seedlings are robust enough to plant, once I get the rest of the sod ripped out from the new garden location. The other half of the Jack O'Lantern, Jack B Littles, and sweet corn seedlings just sprouted and should be ready in a week or so. The majority of the woody Chaos weeds along the fence have been destroyed, a shady sitting area beneath the backyard pines has been cleared out, and archeological diggings have uncovered the back shed. I've also learned that ripping out the grass summons rather nasty thunderstorms. Two hours after I started we had a vicious system roll through that tore up the North side of town a bit and brought down part of the local Menards roof. Everything South of the river was untouched by the winds, leading me to conclude that the Great Pumpkin extended his protection to us as a sign of approval for the fact his people shall soon have a new home.

    This year is the first time I've ever heard the term Easter Monday.

    "health reasons" is often a translation for 1 not enough money in the envelope 2 someone else put more money in their envelope to have competition removed 3 land developer wants you out so they can knock the building down. (Dekalb Way)

    Getting to Know You for April 2019

    Never had the opportunity to learn how, and I don't know if there are any left in the county now that I think on it. So until I can figure out a way to modify a cat to grow 16 hands high, I doubt I'll be riding anytime soon.

    There are times I seriously wonder if someone did exactly this considering the way technology has accelerated since 1947. Thing is, plopping oneself down during the cold war era, with no paper backtrail of personal history and technological knowledge that is advanced beyond anything known at the time is a surefire path to bad things. At best you'd be locked in somewhere like Los Alamos, at worse executed as a spy or infiltrator. Also our own era has not dealt paticularly well with rapid technological change in the last decade, the unintended social and economic side effects of introducing it where the gap is larger might be disasterous. Hence the quieter route of bank robbery and stock manipulation. Still somewhat risky on a wider scale but not anywhere near overt enough to destabalize society as a whole.
