  1. I vote for Qwksilver to take the trophy for the smack talk.. he was good at it :) Jon
  2. Being from MN myself I was a gamer there for many a year. As far as painting goes I am not sure I know of any groups that paint there on a regular basis though. I am in Chicago right now, but I do have alot of friends there that a few might be interested in getting a group together if you are interested? I am from the Coon Rapids and Brooklyn Park/Center area. I am now living in Chicago but I can make a few phone calls to find out if there is at least some interst :) I know the Source is an excellent place to go to for most things gaming though. In a pinch also Shinders is a good place to go to at least buy a D&D book or other RPG item. (at least it was when I was living there) Good Luck! :) p.s I am planning on moving out there once again in a couple of years hopefully.. maybe even sooner.
  3. One of the better places to go too is Wolf (Ritz) Camera they have a larger selection I think then does Best Buy or Circuit City. You can check them out there for the Macro lenses plus they know alot more about the cameras as well. They are not as likely to push you into something you do not need nor want, not to mention they have less customers to deal with :). If the prices are higher there I think that they do price matching so do some shopping around once you do find the camera you like. that way you can get the best price :) Good luck! :)
  4. Add me to the list of interested to please... I did enjoy myself even though I am not doing all that well hehe :)
  5. Last week you came with in two of me.. now I am six above ya.. This is FUN!! If I can not win in Fantasy Football at least I can try and win the Pigskin Pick Em League :) Hehehe!
  6. Having seen this figure in person.. I must say it is a very very nice paint job Eastman :) I can hardly wait till the pictures are posted though to be able to see the base finalized.. (did not get to see the shield after it was added :) ) Good Job!!
  7. I too am up for a keeper league next year and this year.. I am looking forward to the next season already! :) I vote for one or two players though.. no more :) Congrats everyone on thier season thus far.. even if it was a loosing one like mine. It was STILL Fun :) -jon

  12. THere are actual Chinese foo dogs.. they look like a chow in coloring without the black tongue :) They are an unusual breed too from what I was able to pick up from it. http://www.rarebreed.com/breeds/foo/foo.html
  13. Wish I could be of help.. but i have not used the Vellejo water effects as of yet.. but when I do if I do I can report how good it is here if you like ;) -j
  14. Owning both the book and all the Dungeon Magazines for the Shackled City.. I prefer the book the be honest for one it has an extra adventure.. and it has tons of extras not to mention all the DM referance material AND the players referance material in one convenient area. Besides if you do NOT have all the magazines for some reason.. it is ALOT cheaper to buy the book then all the back issues of the magazines too.. Not to mention the book holds up better then individual magazines. So I would highly recommend the book and the campaign style of the adventure itself too :) -j
  15. The ones I like are from Crystal Caste. They have the Semi-Precious Stone Erings and pendants.. they look like of cool for the most part too. I own a set of the Semi-precious stone Dice.. not the jewelry, the Hemitite.. and my wife the Amethyst ones. I would not mind getting the Amethyst jewelry for my wife though.. if only they have them in Gold.. as my wife is allergic to the silver :( http://www.crystalcaste.com/miva/merchant....ategory_Code=JW
  16. I am running The Shackled City at the moment.. and i must say it is one of the better mods I have ran that is a campaign style adventure. Though I did like the Original Temple of Elemental Evil.. and the Underdark box set :) The Worlds Largest Dungeon if I ever get it I will use as a Referance book to stick parts of the dungeon in my campaign world, in random areas. I did not see much of a plot in it either. Another good light hearted campaign style adventure though is the Castle Greyhawk! It is hilarious and it is meant to be taken very lightly.. so if your style of gaming is not one of lighthearttedness.. it is not a good one to play.. but a FUN read though. I especially like the Original Star Trek Crew in there.. Bones (skeleton), Spock (Drow Elf), Kirk and Checkov.. which I forget what he was.. but the interaction between them is hilarious.. not to mention Mordenkanions Movie set with an ancient red dragon stuck up star on the set :) well I digress.. I will probably think of more at a later time, like Dungeon land and Land byond the mirror
  17. Now I wish I had 4500 dollars to blow on a mini of that scale.. it is gorgeous!! I think my wife would literally kill me if I spent that much on a mini though :) The scale is amazingly stark.. and a strong sculp! :) The Mini you painted looks very very nice! I would love to get one and see if I could paint it half as nice :) -jon
  18. ROFL.. I was not expecting the kid like that hehe!
  19. I totally agree with this statement. Just before the session starts.. say that we need to discuss how the game is going. Bring up your issues and that you are contemplatinig taking a break/quit because of those issues.. and that you want to resolve them because you enjoy the comrraderie so much. Give the others time to pipe up as well about it. The DM should have discussed it with the group instead of just jumping into the situation you are in now. As a DM it is his right to do so.. but it is also the DM's responsibilty to make sure the players are having fun.. not just him/her. If the players are not having fun.. no more players.. harsh lesson.. if he learns from it.. instead of just doing that over and over. Communication is a good thing as long as it is constructive and not a type of conversation that someone is getting fingers pointed at them and being blamed for things.. anotherwords.. when bringing this up to the DM make sure when you do that you tell him nicely that this game is going to end for you because you do not feel like it is fair for the players for this reason.... make sense?
  20. Well even though my G-Nomes may not be doing so hot in Fantasy Football.. I must say that in Pigskin Pick-em I am going on a streak!! I am in the lead by two points.. finally!!!!!!! Possibly 1-3 tonight after the game! :) So while yes I may be not be doing so hot in the one I am hot in the other so there!!! hehe.. I am winning! :) nananananananananananananananananana
  21. I am artistic at least to myself :) I can draw and paint on canvas easily enough.. need lots more practice to get up to my canvas painting standards on minis though. Painting a mini is so much different then painting on a flat surface :) I have done some lost wax castings for jewelry and such too. I am actually thinking about getting back into jewelry making and sellinig it locally here in chicago and on the web :)
  22. I too hope your surgery went well.. having been under the knife recently.. I know the fear and anxiety associated with it.. and I sympathize.. so count me for a point or two for the sympath points :)
  23. I admit too I did not notice the nine missiong and yes I WOULD have scrolled back as well.. but all I had to do was glance :) Yes I did laugh.. and yes I knew right away who I was going to forward this too.. my wife who is sitting less then ten feet from me at the moment :)
