  1. In breaking news, Major League Baseball, which has been trying to increase the pace of play for quite a while now, has come up with a solution: MLB To Speed Up Games By Replacing Umpires With Bears

    Most people see something similar to that. But for people with typical eye dominance, one of those images will mostly be discarded by the brain. It's still available if you concentrate on it, but not otherwise. I'm right-eye dominant, so by default I'll use the images from the right eye for sight alignment. With concentration, I can instead use the left-eye images instead (confirmed by closing the right eye), but it feels wrong. One of the things many shooting coaches will tell you is to keep both eyes open when you shoot, but if your brain isn't picking a preferred image, I wonder whether closing an eye might not work better in your specific case.

    Woodworks, Ltd. has large circular wood disks, including 6" and 6½" disks 1/8" thick. (Smaller sizes as well, of course.) I've found them to work great for bases.

    You might want to ping Ron. He was definitely talking about adding a base on stream. By the sound, it was a support issue.

    130mm base (from the Twitch stream).

    Today they were definite about it being added to the core set, so either I misheard yesterday or they've changed plans.

    Mixing Inks with Acrylic Paints?

    The book that everyone seems to recommend is "Blue and Yellow Don't Make Green", which is pretty specific to the issues of artists (at least as far as I've seen; it's still on my wishlist, not in my library).

    VR: Not interested unless it's a full-motion simulator. Simulator sickness is very much a thing for me. AR: PoGo is as far as I've gone. If the game were better (and the company less slimy about trying harvest data), I'd still be playing it.

    Would it make sense to buy multiples of the same mold to increase throughput or is one of each a better way to go?

    If you're willing to spend the time making bricks, the results can be amazing. I know some people pour plaster and demold bricks while they watch TV or YouTube or whatever, and manage to make thousands of parts in very reasonable amounts of time. I keep looking at those molds too, but so far I haven't been willing to pop for what amounts as almost a new hobby. Really tempting, though.

    True. But if it's going to stay translucent, it will be a color that can be mixed from that color. So you can push blue pretty easily to green or purple and red to orange or purple. But if you start with a secondary, it's much harder. A deep purple mini can be pushed toward something very dark, but red or blue is nearly impossible unless you're willing to go either very dark indeed or opaque. IIRC, they've had daily meetings in every project. Only the beginning of the projects is planned in detail, the rest can be moved around, added to, or removed for now. There is no inherent correlation between opacity and rigidity. You can make rigid or floppy clear figures in PVC as easily as you can make rigid or floppy gray or white figures. The difference is how much opacifiier (and to a minor extent how much dye) is included in the plastic mix.

    I've been pushing that for a while. If it's clear I can make it any color I want. If it's colored, I can only make it that color or a color I can mix with that color. I understand the desire to use a color (because it makes out of the box play easier), but I strongly prefer clear for all translucents. I did not hear that as "Core Set", I heard that as "will (probably) become a mini at some point."

    If it's clear, I will almost certainly get two, one to be opaque, and one to see what I can do with a ghost ship.

    Mixing Inks with Acrylic Paints?

    In fact they are paint. Generally single pigment (so without anything to increase their opacity, hence the "clear"), which makes them both saturated and good for mixing. IIRC, @Pingo tested the Clear Magenta next to a couple of artists' acrylic Quinacridone Magentas, and other than some minor consistency and finish differences, they were interchangeable.
  15. Or maybe a sub-basement lair with an exit hidden by a camouflaged hydraulic vault door. One of those. And a pet albino rat that he carries everywhere with him, petting it and making ... not entirely innocuous ... comments?
