    Getting to Know You, October 2019

    Garnet. Especially the gorgeous dark red and red-brown ones.

    ReaperCon 2019 pictures!

    I stared at those mounted wraiths for a looong time at the Con today... I want about nine of them, oh yes, I indeedy do.

    Names and Faces

    I only seem to make every third RCon, which is odd considering that I live less than 20 miles away. I'll be there Thursday, at least... Name: Sharky, aka Gitkikka Pronoun: He/Him Huggability: Negative

    Unreadable fiction

    I find R. A. Salvatore's unbridled use of melodrama so off-putting, I've never managed to get completely through one of his books. Honestly, any of the "Hey, that was an awesome D&D game! Let's write a novel about it!" authors are almost painful to read (I'm looking at you, Weis and Hickman). And yes, reading Moby Dick is like taking a beating. It's just so weird to read...
  6. You better be good... ...for goodness sakes. Wargames Foundry Bazooka Santa. Edit: Whoops, sorry - not a Reaper. I did just happen to paint up this guy a couple days ago, and figured he should be in on the festivities.

    That has *got* to be a Bob Olley sculpt.

    Getting to Know Each Other, October 2018

    My oldest are these Citadel Fantasy Tribe skellies that my parents got for me in 1983: Finally got around to painting them this year :p My first painted miniature was an Asgard barbarian that came with a variety of weapons to put in his (horribly miscast) hands. No pictures though - the paintjob is no big whoop. Rarest? I don't know... Space Slann? "Kinky Chaosette"? All unpainted of course, but i have recently primed a few of the Slann, and I hope to start my Chaos project next year...

    "On Top" Ork

    Oh heck, while I'm at it... I painted this old Ork Boy at the same time that I did the Grenadier Orcs posted earlier, just to test the darker skin tone on a 40K miniature. Actually finished him a week or so ago, but work does tend to get in the way with posting. "On Top". Why? Who knows? Good photography is optional. :)

    Plastic Grenadier Orcs

    What do you do when you need to build an army worthy of Mordor, but have a limited budget? Outsource, baby! Some test scemes here on a trio of plastic Grenadier orcs from their Fantasy Warriors game. I'm putting together a Mordor force for GW's LotR game, but didn't want to just use their sculpts (because orcs are a varied lot - that, and I have a HUGE number of these Grenadier guys just laying around). Cute buggers, ya? Best part about them is that they seem to be the same type of HIPS that GW uses, so I can kitbash to my heart's content.

    More Heritage Sorceresses

    Coincidence is a funny thing. A couple weeks ago, Kev! posted his version of the old Heritage sorceress (1206b) right when I was starting the highlights on mine. I finished slapping paint on mine (and her blister-sister, 1206c) over a week ago, but just now got around to snapping a couple pics due to work and stuff. Rough little sculpts, to be sure. My level of painting didn't do them any favors, either ;) I painted 1206c's (purple robes) eyes as if they were closed, as her pose and general "feel" is like she is deep in casting some heavy magics. Whatever the case, it's about time I got some color on them - I've only had them 30-ish years, after all...

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Sorry to hear that. Goblin says that she will fill in for your kitty today.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Apropos of nothing, but the staff at the new Warhammer Cafe in Grapevine, TX didn't even blink at the 2006 ReaperCon t-shirt I wore during my visit there today. No trolling involved, I honestly didn't think about what I was wearing until I saw my reflection in a display cabinet. Nice place, BTW. Sadly, no ReaperCon this year. We'll be busy getting our little Poolee ready for her "vacation" at Parris Island.

    Webcomics - Because....

    Stand Still Stay Silent has been mentioned. Excellent post-apoc story. Also by the same author, A Redtail's Dream. A bit more "cute" than SSSS, but quite good. This one reached the end of the story a while ago.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Its hour #11 of my 12.5 hour shift. Fortunately, it's also my Friday. Unfortunately, its Sunday which is always super busy at my hospital. Fortunately, it's been a less than insane day. Unfortunately, the one ER doctor that loves to order as many patient x-rays as possible is here and in rare form. Fortunately, I have a free frogurt. Unfortunately, the frogurt toppings contain potassium benzoate.
