    Same here. I have so many random figures I'm just not sure of the core set at this point. I have enough unpainted dragons to keep me busy for a decade. Hoping for some more cool stuff in the Greek expansion and the rumored pulp expansion. Hopefully as people wake up we'll see pledging increase.

    I recommend ball headed quilt pins. You can get a couple hundred at a time for a few bucks at most craft stores.

    It's a good terrain piece. IMO I don't think you'll have trouble selling it afterward if you get it. There seem to be people who like the altar, but don't want the spiders or bodies.
  4. You're braver than I am. I always pay someone to do that. I can't see the back of my head, god knows what it would come out looking like if I did it myself.

    Bob is the one that likes to do terrain pieces. I'm 99% sure he built the shrine and Julie added spiders. I suspect this is going to be a boxed set, about $30 in retail because of all the pieces. It's not going to be cost efficient to break it up for retail if it is all on one mold. The character figures from DDS2 are available separately in metal.
  6. Those look really good! That medical bay is slick! If I ever get back into Hirst Arts, the sci-fi molds are first on my list.

    Oooh, finally! Something I'm excited about backing. That poor little adventurer doesn't stand a chance. Where are his buddies?

    Getting to Know You, October 2019

    Aside from the usual laundry, housework, and vet appointments there is the yard to deal with. It was neglected for a few years when I had surgeries and we've been playing catch up since. Last winter we lost a lot of branches, some has been cleaned up, but the lilacs need a good thinning to make them healthy again. I have to kill/rip out as much of the invasive honeysuckle as possible. Really though, the project keeping me from painting is a fun one, I'm building a new quilt. I've been procrastinating (ie, painting minis) all summer and I'm not as far done with it as planned. Today I'm clearing a paper project off the work table and picking up the sewing again. Mostly what keeps me from doing anything is chronic fatigue related to various health conditions. The latest one they've tacked on to the list is low blood cell count thanks to the chemotherapy. I feel ok because disease is in remission, but I'm out of breath all the time now.
  9. Looks like a nice evening for grilled chicken. Have to check and see how wet the wood pile is. It's under cover, but sometimes the rain blows sideways. It's also getting to be time to make a batch of pesto, before the plants freeze.

    Remember it has to be $40 before tax and shipping. Something like a $39.99 paint set won't trigger the shipping dept software to add it to your invoice.
  11. Appear to be 3 in package.

    BTW, Windex (brand only) is a good ranged attack on roaches. If you have the kind that scuttle away the moment you move near them, a focused spray nozzle will get you 3-4 feet of range. Something about that brand gets inside the carapace and kills within seconds.

    The usual assortment of flies, ants, spiders, other small bugs, and the occasional mosquito. Sometimes a cricket gets into the basement and starves to death. For the flies, opening a window during the day gets them out. We poison the ants if a whole nest finds a way in. Spiders I will leave alone, they eat the gnats and pillbugs. We had raccoons in the attic a few years ago and they were a pain. Destroyed the roof, had to be professionally removed. I found a dead possum in the garage once. Really dead, not playing. I would have let it out if I had known it was there. No idea how it got in, as they typically aren't active during the day and DH is careful to keep the doors closed.

    I've been watching it.
  15. I've finished it, and thank fraggle it's over. Not a bad start, way to long in the middle, and finally ends. I hope they don't do another season. They are out of story. But yes, beautiful to look at, even the creepy parts.

    If it's going to be massive it better be functional. Something that large I want to use to fling dice across the table.
  17. She is a pure bred and pedigreed Maine Coon showcat. Her features are more on the delicate side for her breed. And she is the sweetest little lapcat. AFAIK none of the rest of my group has heard about it or looked at it, so I'm going to save it for April.
  18. Today's halloween cat photo is brought to you by the words "me" and "ow".
  19. Glad you are feeling better. I recommend staying away from acids for a while: tomato soup, coffee, orange juice, soda, etc. Stick with dairy (if you can have it), vegetables, grains, and beans. And lots of water, since you're probably dehydrated.

    They're made by sticking a T pin to the hot liquid metal after it has been poured into a mold. If the end of the pin isn't sufficiently covered by liquid metal it won't hold. I've seen some that had a little extra blob of metal on them to hold the pin, but if the metal had started to cool it might not have formed a good seal.

    UnreliableNarrator's unreliable paintjobs: C&C needed

    I think, overall, you just need to practice more. You're getting paint in the right places but need finer control to tighten up the details. Maybe a smaller brush and more patience. Some washes and inks are glossy, unfortunately. If you used that on your skels it will show. Also matte finish is not the same as flat finish. There can be slight shininess. Have you tried Testor's Dullcote? And, sorry to nitpick, but "varnish" is a resin product used on floors, not miniatures. :)
  22. It's soup season here, too. Picked up some giant leeks at the asian grocery and going to get potatoes today. Big pot of potato leek soup with fresh bread for dinner. And while that simmers, I'll finally get some painting done.

    Hit the blue "Manage My Pledge" button. Hit the green "Change my Pledge" button. Scroll down to Pledge Amount and change it, then hit the green "Continue" button. This changes the $$ amount but not your wave#.

    From the comments section this morning: " Ron Hawkins10 minutes ago The next Expansion, the one starting in Map 4, is my favorite one, I think. Ron Hawkins15 minutes ago Map 4 smells like hummus and kebabs. Ron Hawkins25 minutes ago We'll get some shots of Mr. Forscale with his dragon nemeses on Monday hopefully. "
  25. Haven't put any paint on the brush this week, but got a handful of figures spray coated, and another handful primed. Assembled 6 multipart figures for the paint-n-take next year, and primed a whole bunch of metal and plastic. Noticed when i went to put figures away that there were some I did not get photos of, so those are waiting for a good sunny day. Planning to spend tomorrow painting.
