    Corporea's Desk of Progress

    Everyone be jealous of me for a moment, okay? It turns out that Corporea and I have mutual friends who live in my town. She came to visit them and we all had a paint party this afternoon. I was able to see this piece live and in person and it is stunning. Absolutely stunning. Cannot wait to see it when it is finished.

    Here comes some unsolicitied advice (that I wish someone had given me) — Take a picture of yourself. RIGHT NOW. Nobody needs to see it but you if you are self-conscious. Take one! I MEAN IT. This last year, I have gone from 298 to 214 and I totally regret not taking a "BEFORE" picture... so GO AND DO IT. Okay, boss... I think they get it... Sorry, Elwood... Anyway... I did it — like you want to — 1 pound a week... sometimes less, sometimes more. You will lose a lot in the beginning, and if you eat less and move more it will happen for you. Start small with exercising: when I started, I could barely walk up the hill near my house before coming home and collapsing. I am up to 7-10 miles a day now... and it's fun! I'd also suggest using "MyFitnessPal" to track caloric intake, a "FitBit" to track your moving/walking and — if you are feeling it — "Fitocracy.com" --- to make a 'game' out of exercising. This is amazing, and I know you all can do it — because I did and still am — my goal is to lose 15 more and get to 199.

    Baba Yaga and Hut

    A friend of mine is running our group through the Pathfinder adventure path "Reign of Winter" Because I am a sadist, I decided to try and paint up something as a present for him in appreciation of running such a long series of modules. In addition, I am working with the folks at http://impudentmortal.com/ to create the hut (while I will be sculpting the chicken leg base). This thread is to kick me in the pants so that I actually finish it! First up is my "inspiration" shots on my corkboard... I find it helps to have visuals up that A: kick me in the pants whenever I walk by and B: give me some help whenever I think, "Hmm... what color should I do her babushcka?" and other random questions... so — inspiration board pics:

    Penny Dreadful - who's watching it?

    I'm on episode 4. I'll probably keep watching it. I like the premise... a sort of updated take on "League of Extraordinary Gentlemen" without the comic-bookish superheroics... the look and feel of the series is great. Some of the acting is sub-par, some is over the top --- but in general it's pretty good. I guess I would tentatively recommend it. But very lukewarm recommendation. ::

    14080 Guardian Angel

    I did! It's not in there.

    14080 Guardian Angel

    Okay, question time... who painted this? It would have to have been a LONG time ago, as it was the miniature I received for one of the first miniature exchanges. It's a conversion of 14080: Guardian Angel. I had it on a place of honor on my shelf, and the box it came in (which had the name of the painter on it) has disappeared. I was curious as to what the person who had painted it was up to, went to track them down and... nothing... my memory is a complete blank! So... if you recognize this, please pipe up and help me solve this mystery!

    14080 Guardian Angel

    I did. This was prior to the big change over years ago. And I don't know that the people were told 'who' they were given... I was given mine at ReaperCon, I believe. Told ya... memory shot... Hopefully someone recognizes it and pipe's up...!

    Don't mind Elwood. He's all a figment of your imagination. Your imagination, maybe... Shut up, Elwood. You're the one de-railing this thread, not me. I just want to put that out there for everyone to see. Fine. You got me. Again!

    Indeed it did. I was just thinking I should put it back to a Squirrel! Something else for you to procrastinate. SHUT UP, ELWOOD!

    "How Did You Come Across Reaper Miniatures" Stories

    I was randomly surfing the web one day, looking around and doing research for a D&D game set in Greyhawk. I was always the one who would be tasked with finding and painting miniatures for my group, so I was looking for specific miniatures. I happened upon the Forums on either the day it was created or the day after. I was very active for quite a while, but then took a long time off... but the Kickstarter(s) have brought me (and Elwood) back! People are probably more excited to have me back, than you. I doubt it, Elwood. I reallllly doubt it.
