  1. AAHHHH!!! It is not a Dwarf. Still a bloody fine piece of painting. Great for not putting anything together in over a year. Wish I could find some time to paint now. Hurry up and complete a respectable model instead of these blasted greenskins.
  2. So a quick update. I had the hearing yesterday and they reduced the suspension to time served as I have already missed 2 games. They tried to read the ref report out loud and no one including me could understand what he had written as the reason as he said the foul was committed by the attacking player and I was the defender so they reduced it to a level 1 infraction wich is better I guess. The downside is Imissed 2 games instead of 1 for a level one infraction and if I get another red(not likley as this is the first in like 22-25years) it is an automatic 8 game suspension. Some
  3. Yeah!!! A Mercius special. I can't wait to see the completed project. You are the whole reason I posted a few of my poeces on this forum. As a former lurker back when you started I was shocked at the feedback you got and amazed at the improvement I saw. Now I envy your skill and have sorely missed your completed figures in show off section. *ahem* mini crush over *hem* Not that I am any expert but what I see on the monitor is a great mini. Clean with well defined details. I absolutley love the leather skirt and boots. As always you paint the best beards a personal envy of mine.
  4. Not in a holding cell yet. Never will be I am not that violent of a person. This has just got me down. Yes I am still upset even after this many days. 3 Game is the minimum for a foul along the boards. It is indoor soccer as it is -12 C here as a high at the moment. I play in the lowest division by choice as I no longer have the drive to practice and train to compete at the level I once did. I do it or a little exercise and think it is a good example to set for my children. The being active thing. I am the coach and no we don't tape the games for later review. The actual occuranc
  5. Oh I haven't gone off the deep end yet. I am still hot under the collar though. As for an appeal I have already filed for a hearing but I know the outcome already from being in the sport for over 20 years I will get at least a 3 game suspension just because the league wants to show their support for the ref community. I have never seen them overturn a ref decision. I don't understand how a board of directors that were not at the game can rule on it but them is the breaks. I just can't believe how upset this has made me. I used to consider myself I fairly laid back and calm person.
  6. Hello, I know I lurk more than post and am not close with many on these forums but I had an incident tonight that has gotten under my skin and the longer I stew on it the more upset I get. I play Soccer (I know not he most popular sport on the forum, take your best shot) and the ref mad a horrible call and gave me a red card for a foul I did not commit. Got the wrong player he did. That means a minimum 3 game suspension in the league I play in, so I am done until the new year. This really upsets me. To the point where I can't sleep and am literally shaking. I know I should let it
  7. That is some fine gaming minis. After giving you a hard time I guess it is time to get back to my Perditta crew. Teaches me for opening my big mouth.
  8. Allright, Plated the predefined startup 10 deck first game match against my wife. What a blast!!! The game is silly quick to setup and by the third round we were basically beating each other to finish a round. I couldn't recommend this game any higher. Not sure I really need any expansions right now but do I ever want to play again.
  9. Thanks for the replies everyone. The 6 player thing would have been a nice bonus. I picked up the base game today and the Mrs and I will try it out if we can get the kids to bed ever. Let you know what we think.
  10. I thought Intrigue would be an autoinclude as does that not allow the game to play with up to 6 people? Or does the game bog down and sort of lose it's shine at more than 4 players?
  11. Well, I loke board games and was looking into this one the other day. I have not played the game so was wondering what people thought and if the expansions ore needed? If they are which ones? And probably first off is the game worth it? Thanks
  12. @Traxia After seeing some of your work especially "Rule #1" I'm sure your cisco will be 2x as good. Thanks for the compliment. @MamaGeek I can see I have to bring the highlights up a bit more. Under the ottlights it looks okay and as soon as I bring it out from unde those it seems less so. I have been trying to follow your photo tutorial. I built a lightbox out of a cardboard box and use wax paper to diffuse the light from the ottlights then take the photo. I tried using some manual settings on my camera this time and got truer colours but as you say it tis a bit washed out. Still
  13. Well I finally put him on a base and sprayed him down with dullcoat. I think he turned out okay for a mini I will be gaming with. Please give constructive criticism you feel will improve my painting or photo taking. If you want to ee the process used to paint him the wip is here.
  14. Thanks for the insights. I may have to reconsider how I was going to do this. As for painters I think I could reasonably expect around 10 - 12 participants. I did a mini exchange around a year ago and got 8 people who participated and the store population has grown since then. As for judges I am not sure who I could get. I am considered one of the better painters in the store and I don't know if I would feel all that comfortable critiquing others work as I don't feel that my own skill is high enough to give appropriate feedback on the model. Plus the people I can count on to enter h
