    Question for Wednesday, October 4th: What's your favorite song for the season? Why? Any special memories attached to it?


    For autumn, not so much. But it's spring over here right now, so...



    Back in the spring of 2011 I was big into MMJ, and started sharing some of their songs with a girl at work who I was rather taken with. This song in particular took her fancy, and the fact that she both wore her hair up at work and wore glasses made it all the more fitting.

    Well, fast forward three years and we danced to this as our first song at our wedding, which was also in the spring, and it's still a favourite song of mine.

    Question for Tuesday, October 2nd:

    Pumpkin Spice season is upon us. What is your favorite autumnal food, drink, and treat?



    Feijoa. Fresh feijoa, stewed feijoa with ice cream, feijoa jam, feijoa fresh fruit smoothie, feijoa crumble... all of it.

    I was actually bummed out that I missed out on a month of the feijoa season when I went on my honeymoon.

    Question for Tuesday, October 3rd:

    What is the most ridiculous "Pumpkin Spice" item you've seen? Did you get it/try it? What's the craziest you can come up with?


    Pumpkin spice really isn't much of a thing here. I think Starbucks does the lattes.

    yup even with  3 year old spaghetti means breaking out the "art" smock.  Mine some times has less paint on her hands then Ido after a painting session,  but she makes spaghetti  looks like  a monster just got gibbed in a first person shooter.  




    I just don't care about getting his clothes stained. The vast majority of his clothes are either hand-me-downs from friends or bought second hand in bulk.

    It was an unscheduled bath night tonight, though.

  4. Meg Maples was sent a prototype to review and she wrote this blog post about it:


    Long story short, she's not a fan, but being in the southern hemisphere may have been a factor. Redgrass said that the problem she was having of too much water coming through the paper and watering down her paint was due to using heavier body artist's acrylics, but it doesn't seem to make much sense that thinner hobby paints wouldn't be more affected.

    For me, I'm happy to stick with home made.

    Hmmm, rumors seem to be saying that the game will be split in two - with the rules for multi-level terrain being in the second release, and the first focusing on just the gangs.


    Gods above and below, I hope GW doesn't mess this up.


    The Auld Grump


    I haven't heard specific mention of terrain rules in a second release, but this is what they said on the Warhammer Community site:

    "As well as the underhive style of play covered by the boxed set, there will also be ways to play Necromunda with the multi-level skirmishes that defined the classic version of the game."

    The tiles and bulkheads are designed to represent sewers and tunnels in the underhive.

  6. Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I'm not overly enthusiastic about how they've split the core this time. I understand it, but I guess it just wasn't what I was expecting.

    For example, I was looking forward to picking up the three demons from the Demons and Devils set but I actively dislike the minitaurs, Baba Yaga leaves me cold, and I already have two copies of the Chaos Warrior guy in resin.

    Ahh well, more stuff to get at retail I suppose.

    I've been feeling a bit down and melancholy this week; I think a lot of people are given the state of weather, politics, etc...so this weekend:


    Weekend Quest, Aug 25-27: Find something that inspires you, gives hope, joy, peace, etc...then share it.



    Last week, as some of you might recall, I had a bit of a rant on Facebook about hating my painting. I'd had a bad night's session, things weren't going well and it was really getting to me. Anyway, in amongst some really supportive and uplifting comments, my good friend sent me this message:


    "Bro, when Riley died you posted about how you had massive respect for him because he worked damn hard at his craft. From my perspective you are the same way with your painting. You got me into painting and I'm grateful for that. There are hurdles in anything you do in life. If it was easy it wouldn't be worth doing. You stick with it and it will be awesome."


    For a bit of context, Riley was a friend and former coworker of ours who died in a traffic accident a year ago. At the time I'd made mention of how much I admired his dedication to his photography - the guy would think nothing of sitting on an overpass in the freezing cold all night to get a time lapse shot that he wanted - and for someone to show the same kind of admiration to me was incredibly touching (I may have teared up a little at the farmer's market).

    So, I guess the thing that gives me inspiration, hope, joy, and peace is that I have some pretty amazing people in my life that I'm lucky to call my friends - and that includes a lot of the folks right here on these forums.
