    Define "run?  If you mean "we're gonna be painting on x date, it would be cool if you can make it", then yes.  It's more like herding cats.

     

    Run in the sense that you organize the cats, talk to to the venue that the meetup is at, maybe run mini-events/themes, classes if you have them, keep the group alive and going.  It is a fluid term.

  2. Right now I am listening to David Drake's With the Lightnings.  It is so incredibly boring its astounding.  Something is finally happening 7 hours in, but that took oh, so long.  Not to mention that writing is pretty terrible.  The main character, as of right now, is wholly unlikable.  @Doug Sundseth recommended it so I hope it gets better.  I am listening to it, but so far I am sure if that works well as Drake breaks passages all the time with view pint shifts (small paragraphs at times too) and that is often hard to follow in audio format.  This is an homage to Aubrey/Mautrin series but right now, I would say just read that.

    Just finished NPCs by Drew Hayes. It is thoroughly ridiculous and adorable. Very good one for nerds to read for simple relaxation and giggles.

     

    Premise: The players are broccoli-faces, and the GM makes the game "more realistic". The players die stupidly. The NPCs of the game however, pick their bodies for loot, and find their mission scroll which puts them on the quest instead - sortof. So the NPCs try to become replacement adventurers, while realizing that most adventurers are broccoli-faces.

     

     

    I have started listening to that one a few times.  So far, something just doesn't work for me yet.  Maybe I should push through the first 1/4.

    Just started re-listening to Dune.  I read it in high school, and I thought it was great.   It still is.  Reading the paperback of Dune Messiah at the same time.  I have never been able to get into Messiah until this time.  So far, not bad, but not Dune.

    No, as he makes very clear if you read the Campaign page; he only supplied sculpts for Hasslefree, he had nothing to do with how the kickstarter was run. And Hasslefree has no part in this project.

     

    It is his company with Arty and Sally.  He can try to brush off everything, but he's a responsible party.  He's just not willing to take responsibility as he should.

  5. So, I have been using Badger's Miniataire paint (their yellow specifically).  Through the airbrush, it works just fine, but when I paint and try to thin it, it pretty dang useless.  If I put it on un-thinned its a bit better, but this odd.  Have anyone else noticed this?
