  1. I'm glad that they are being open about the status of the other projects. I'm still going to wait for retail and reviews. So, I'll check again in 1 1/2 to 2 years, if not more. Ron
  2. I definitely agree about the spares, especially with airbrushes. Odds of damage when it comes to needles and nozzles is just high enough that I like having a spare for both. Ron
  3. Certainly not based on the Rocinante. Still very tempting. I'll get a 3D printer someday, right? Ron
  4. I periodically will prune and purge paints and minis. It's tough at times, but accepting that I'll never really paint something can leave room to get something new that I probably won't paint. Ron
  5. Humble Bundle has a collection of fantasy STL files: scatter terrain, furnishings, and some minis as a bundle. I'm trying to resist since I don't need more temptation to get a printer. Ron
  6. We've been happy with our Shark as our Dyson (one's upstairs and one is downstairs). The Shark was about half the price of the Dyson. We also have a Roomba to help control the hair from our Golden Retriever. The Roomba has worked wonders except that over the last few months, it has been attacking the problem at the source and has tried to eat the dog's tail a few times.
  7. It's live with some early birds for the next 24 hours or so. I'm very tempted, even to get the STL files before I have a printer. Ron
  8. I whole heartedly agree with Gadgetman!'s suggestion to use a mask even with a box that has good fan and filter. I set up a large box with filter and box fan, and I still wonder if some of my sinus issues were a result of spray priming without a mask. Of course, N95 rated masks are a little hard to find right now. :-|
  9. I have a couple of essential oil cases from Amazon. About $35 for 104 dropper bottle case, soft sided with foam organizer. Mine is from Soothing Wellness Essentials, but there are many which are essentially the same thing. Ron
  10. I'm bummed since I was looking forward to working the Reaper booth, chatting with Pingo and other painting friends, and taking a couple of classes. But, it's the right thing to do, especially since we're very much in the early part of the COVID-19 spread in the US. Based on China's experience, I expect that we'll be living disrupted lives for at least 2-3 months. There was a noticeable drop in the number of people on our corporate campus from Wednesday to Thursday. My team started working from home on Friday. I expect that we'll all be told to work from home within a week or two. When that notice goes out, the effect will be pretty devastating on the hundreds of facilities and catering staff who support us. Ron
  11. Happy birthday to one of my ReaperCon breakfast buddies! Ron
  12. I’ve flown from Houston to Norway with paints in winter without any problems. The luggage compartment should be pressurized and heated as long as nothing goes wrong. Be careful if you are going from a lower elevation to a higher one. And even if you aren’t, make sure that the caps are on tightly, Ron
  13. I just noticed that it is currently cheaper to order the ScaleColor paints directly from the Spanish site than it is to go through a US source, even with shipping. Ron
  14. The project is now funded.
  15. The author posted a few PDF previews in the updates. Here is one.
