  1. interesting weather this morning.... A lightning strike hit the local power transformer and blew it to pieces. the detonation was loud enough to shake the house from 2 blocks away. Good morning Monday, nice to see you off to a good start! Power was restored an hour ahead of predicted repair time so Kudos to the local repair crews!
  2. I love your leather. the seat and the leather bag in the cart look so real. and I just love the submerged troll. great work!
  3. Love the Doggos! great job on these. i have some painted but you have outdone yourself. Thanks for sharing!
  4. sympathies. sounds like you had a day like mine. I am just finishing my last meeting... hopefully sometime in the next hour. the aggravation is gone...I leave the day with a whimper.
  5. well, I'm Jealous. Say high to the goodie bag for me!
  6. Nice work! really good job on the conversion! Though I think I will personally pass on that soup. Its like the foot truck running around my Stargrave games: "Not Rat meat sticks" ☺️
  7. Vitamin D is something I already take. the lackluster interest in everything is mainly due to losing my last adrenal gland over the holidays and having to get using pills to compensate. Its a learning experience. I appreciate the concern an the sympathetic condition! Worst part for me is its pretty much voluntary: the drugs I take to mitigate my cancer, cause a weird form of arthritis that attacks the tendons and muscles in various joints (usually just one or two each time but quite painful none the less.) A variety of arthritis that attacks the tendons and ends of the muscles is my torch to bear. Its a weird variety of arthritis that goes after the connective tissue between the joints and the muscles causing inflammation and the muscles to pull on the joints in funny ways. It makes the joint ache and the muscles all around the joint very unhappy. the worst part is the sad fact that the joints will fuse if they aren't exercised so in order to keep movement i have to keep moving the joint in the most painful direction. (I lost this battle with my neck, i am not going to lose again!) On the positive side, I am literally living a quote from the Princess Bride: "Life is Pain, anyone who tells you otherwise is trying to sell you something" some of the drugs that keep me alive trigger flares of this condition. but the alternative is a comfortable but very short lifespan! 😲 The inner chemist in me tends to shy away from playing with paint. i have had a few experiments go badly and still more where i have made something interesting and then completely forgotten what I did. neither of these is conducive to continuing....
  8. Day is meeting horror day! started my day at 8am, meetings run until 9pm tonight. I get a half hour for lunch and that is the only break I have today. This Monday is not my friend! I am also struggling with starting to paint again. I feel like I lost my mojo somewhere along the way. I got sick in December and I dont think i have spent more than 3 or 4 hours since painting. I just cant get my interest back. Spending way to much time just vegging in front of the TV and wondering where my life is going. Of course it doesnt help that my knees feel like they are on fire most of the time, but still, seems unfair that I can't do what I want to. Anyone have suggestions? Other than the obvious, just go paint? Hope everyone else is having a good monday!
  9. Bet he took a little longer than an hour this time 😁. He looks really good I am sure he will have a lot of fun Bhonking his enemies!
  10. Sorry to hear that @Sylverthorne I got a lesson in riding hormone and sugar level waves over the last 3 months and its no fun for anybody. Hope he gets well soon and they have a permanent fix for him. I will keep you both in my thoughts Roo
  11. Nice job! The whale is from Punga miniatures out of Poland, I think. Looks like their whale ogre That I almost got with my last purchase from them You really did the mini justice!
  12. Oh! I like it! She's cute!
  13. First set of these came out great I can recommend their print models and they have a really great sense of humor on their asthetic.
  14. good for you! not really there yet, but at least i have the 3d printer going again (printing for a friend...)
  15. Thanks @Jeepnewbie it happens. I'm still alive and that's a lot to be grateful for. I should be back in 2023, but I would rather not risk a repeat of what happened in December. Until then, you'll just have to imagine my presence like a ghost in the machine
  16. Nice job! I also really like the flame crystal in the staff very nicely done. As for basing, a friend game me a recommendation once and when I finally got done grousing about how it it didn't look realistic, it turned out to really set the mini off well. You don't have to take it, but the recommendation is to always edge the base in black. It sets the unit on the base slightly apart making it stand out more and highlights the part of the base you are supposed to look at instead of causing the base and mini to blend into the terrain. Just a suggestion, I really like what you did with the mini and the color selection is terrific!
  17. I love what you did with the white on the mini! very well done.
  18. My desk dragon is pretty irreplaceable. I got him in a lot a long time ago and it's one of maybe 100 castings and a combination of resin and metal. Since I didn't know this until after I painted it fear of destroying the irreplaceable didn't kick in and I got a wonderful ice dragon. They won't be as rare but I hope that some of the bones 6 dragons will one as marvelous
  19. well, yes. I even have a living dragon in the house. (Gabby is a bearded dragon and every once in a while goes wandering among her comrades
  20. there are more dragons that that in one of my 4 cabinets... I may have a problem the 70+ finished ones does not include the ones i have sold, given away, or traded; only what remains at the house. disturbingly, all of my painted dragons are right by the front door so if i need to bug out i can shovel them out the door on the way out!
  21. Err, so what does that make my pile? I have over 50 unpainted and 70 painted dragons ranging from 'I cant see it' to 'now I have carpel tunnel syndrome' in size and weight. (metal T'raukzul will add muscle to your wrist and destroy your tendons at the same time!) But I am definitely looking forward to the new dragons, which hopefully this time will be of the larger variety!
