Instigator (4/8)



  1. Geek.kon was this weekend and it was a blast. I didn't get to hang around as long as I wanted to with the crawl, but I was very tired. Work on this thing went so fast, I never had time to stop and photo any of it past the sculpting phase. None of the models are really of an interesting quality so I didn't try to take WIP shots of those. This is all still a WIP, since I eventually want to get all of the loot markers handmade (right now using cardstock items). Here's what the setup was on Saturday: And since he's very much a WIP, here's a quickie of ol' Rauthuros
  2. Finally some shots of the almost complete cavern before painting. Would have been earlier but I contracted a little OCD about the pieces lining up flush. I gave up and will hopefully deal with it as is. Covering my living room with foam bits while watching MST3K...it was a good week/weekend. :)
  3. Don't worry... I'm still working on this behind the scenes. I just haven't had the time to take pictures. Almost done ripping out the initial cavern layout and getting ready to move to refining and shaping the walls/floors. Since it's a nice holiday tomorrow, I'll see about taking it all outside and getting photos. Hopefully, I'll also be adding painted minis to this post. Stay tuned!
  4. Nah, I'm not worried about that since it's open to however the player wants to do it. There are bigger rewards in the middle but a lot more trouble to.... so, if the player is smart, they'll hunt around a bit, but there's nothing wrong with running straight to the middle. They just might get killed quickly and not gather as many points. There are also certain spots that have random encounters.
  5. Those very pliers that are in the first picture. Yes, my hand aches a bit, but I'm giving it rest time between pulls. I also use a butterknife to dig out large chunks at at time. I've tried many different techniques but these two seem to work best so far. The walls of the cavern piece shown are not sculpted yet, except for a small part (shown mostly in the last picture's bottom right). I'm using needlenose pliers for that which really makes a nice caverny look. Although I agree that the rough floor looks good like that, I'm going to sand them to make it easier for models to stand.
  6. Long time no post, I know. But I am still working on these caverns...mostly I've been tweaking rules up until a few weeks ago, so the WIP of the actual cavern pieces isn't too far ahead. I haven't taken very many pictures, but hopefully I'll get a chance to put up some newer ones after this weekend. For now, this is all I have to show. Earlier progress on one panel: I made a test piece last night to try out color schemes. Perhaps I'll post that later to get opinions.. so far, I'm leaning towards a brownish cavern color vs. a gray one.
  7. Thanks for linking that! Every time I listen to Mc Frontalot, I wish I could really get into it....but rap just isn't my thing. I do appreciate all the geekiness though and I'll never look down on such awesome love of anything geek.
  8. For trying out anime, I highly recommend using Netflix. Although their selection isn't huge, it's growing everyday and they even have some anime for streaming "watch it now" over highspeed net. As far as matching your catagory choices, I don't anything really new to add (there have already been some great titels named, and I especially nod to Neon Genesis and LAIN). I can list a few newer shows that I love but they are goint to cross into your possible dislikes. All I can say is, give even shows you might dismiss right off a try... I found some really great jewls that way. And, if you use Netflix or another rental type service, watch the previews listed in special features. Just about every dvd has them and it's a good way to find out about more anime.
  9. Happy Birthday!! Have a great one!
  10. I'm so sorry to hear this, Erin. If there's anything I can do to help, please let me know... I mean it, okay? I have you and your family in my thoughts.
  11. http://pmog.com/ It's silly... it's useless... but it's kind of fun. I just signed up for this and it seems kind of neat so far. In a nutshell: level a character by surfing the web, leave mines/loot/portals on any url you visit for other players to trip, retaliate against mines left by other players, take "missions" developed by players & pmog itself. I haven't done a mission yet, so I don't really know what they are like. Could eventually be a horrible advertsing campaign, but it has my attetion for the current five miniutes. Take a look and see what you think. There might be loot just waiting for you around here.
  12. I've used Pandora for years now... very good site, indeed. Sadly, some of my picks began to really repeat too often. Now I use these sites: http://magnatune.com/ Good DRM-free mp3s from independent artists; all can be streamed for free online. I highly recommend Falling You (nice Ambient, my fav is the album Human) and Brad Sucks (indie rock, reminds me of early Beck and..somethingelse, dunno). http://www.roqofthe80s.com/# Whee! The 80s! On full loop! What could go wrong?
  13. Paaaaaaarty! Hope you have a great day!
  14. Thank you very much. Cake for everyone!* *The cake is a lie.
