  1. I want to see the new BladeRunner...and the professor Marston and the Wonder Women, But what I want and what the pocket book allows are usually two different things. :P
  2. Pumpkin spice (Naturally), Apple Pie and fresh caramel Apples. :D
  3. One cheesy Romance that shall not be named because it is Cheesy and light reading for work. The Darkest Torment by Gena Showalter. Just finished The Handmaiden Tale. Kind of 50-50 on that. Got a bit too predictable for me.

    Good Eats!

    Red Bean and Sausage Casserole Ingredients 1lb bulk spicy pork sausage 1 can (15.5 oz) red beans, drained, rinsed 1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes with green pepper and onion, undrained 1 teaspoon red pepper sauce 1 can (12 oz) Pillsbury™ Grands!™ Jr. Golden Layers® refrigerated buttermilk biscuits Steps 1. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 11x7-inch (2-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. 2. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook sausage over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until no longer pink. Drain; return to skillet. Stir in beans, tomatoes and pepper sauce. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat; simmer about 5 minutes or until slightly thickened. Spoon into baking dish. 3. Separate dough into 10 biscuits; arrange over casserole. 4. Bake 18 to 22 minutes or until thoroughly heated and biscuits are golden brown. I have found the putting the rolls on the bottom and pre-baking for about 6 minutes and them pouring the hamburger over the top works very well as well.

    Welcome, New and Old Introductions

    Well, my Real name is Tammi, Like some I joined the boards back near its inception way back when. I was active for some time with painting, and the play by post game area. Then Real life drew me away. I would pop in occasionally like the elusive creature I am to say hi! Having recently moved into a three bedroom house I am finally able to get my miniatures and other art stuff out to paint and once again found myself drawn back to this wonderful community of folk. I paint miniature as well as model horses, I have been gaming for years! Many, many years, though I do not table top game anymore, all my stuff is on line play by posts (The down side of country living no one wants to drive over 30 minutes to game!) I have not painted for some time, but the new room…I am eager to get started. Once I “finally” get it sorted and set up to my liking. I collect miniatures, model horses, real horses (3 now) real cats (We have 9.5 if you count the new feral kitty that has come to stay) and well anything that has fur and four legs according to my husband. In real life I work in Support Services at Nebraska Medicine Hospital. That is a fancy way of saying I work in and with the lab. I am a phlebotomist.

    It's a Me

    So, rather than side track a few threads here and there with non related replies... Many of you don;t know me, (Actually most of you don't know me ;P) But for those that do and want to play catch up. Here I am! Going over stuff now, looking at the help topics for painting so I can get myself ready to jump back in. I am sure it is like riding a bike. So hello to all you people I don't know, and to those few who remember me!

    Unpainted horse....Yes, Model horses are on my list to paint as well. Ya I disappeared for a bit, had moved to a smaller place, no room to set out all the paints. And with real life I am going to be sporadic, but still be here. (So any topics have so many replies already!) But the new bigger place means more "adult" responsibilities :P Thanks for the hellos, hugs and welcome back so far. I need to do some reading. Froggy's random post really scares me....
  10. I was very pleased, we also watched the re-run on Monday to re-analyze things. I like how everything was set up for the rest of season. I am curious to see how the various 'relationships' play out.

I have backed a lot of the stuff and been very happy. Add in they have been getting some of the original white wolf stuff available for reprint through RPDRivethru has been fantastic. Can't weigh in on the rest.

    So many names I recognize, and some new faces. :D Haldir, Aryanun...and of Course Froggy (I just unpacked your battle toad the other day as well as the fairy dragon with his stolen pie.) life is good. We finally bought an acreage last summer, and I have spent the last ten months unpacking (And I am still unpacking! You really accumulate a lot of stuff over time.) I have slowly started to set up a proper "hobby room" though it looks more like a natural disaster atm. Hope they aren't too big.... I am the proud owner of 12 chickens, 9.5 cats (This is counting the feral that has decided the barn is a nice place to live), 4 dogs and three horses. I am really looking forward to painting, and I have to say I have missed you all a lot! I'd write more, but need to get ready for work...and for the person who was looking for Monday.....It ran me over yesterday and I failed to get a licences plate.....You catch up with it, give it a swift kick for me as well.
  14. I have been converting to Imagur for some time, less add heavy for one. But oddly some of my photo buckets links are still working. Not sure why. But it did do a number on my game forums, as my Graphics person was using them exclusively. I make a lot of my albums there private, on Imagur that is.
  15. thanks! Perusing the minis....I need those Kitsune. Been replacing paints and setting up my new craft room.
  16. Done, and I am impressed there is a person in Omaha! (Even though I am not)

    A while back someone asked me to put up some info on painting dapples on horses. After consulting with a few model horse friends and being assured "scale" made no difference, the techniques we use would work on the smaller guys, I have finally found some info. This info comes directly from Carol Howards Colors and Technique book she put put for us model horse wanna-be painters! The pictures also come from her book. " Dapples The type of dapple you desire or prefer will dictate how you will paint them onto the model. There are three basic shapes of dapples: Generic round or smooth -slightly irregular round shapes Star - Asterick shaped with fine "spikes" raditating from the center, sometimes the spikes appear to connect with other dapples. Splotchy -irregular shaped light spots with little 'nubs' around the center. The key to getting quality dapples applied here are: A) Take your time! Apply dapples in sections, and if necessary, plan to do it in several sessions (Very good idea when working on a large model horse, not necessary for our small guys I think) B) Be careful, go slowly and be patient. Use small brushes and a very delicate touch throughout the smoothing operation. C) If the dapple centers aren't white enough - don't killyourself over it! It can be fixed later, after the horse dries. Round or smooth dapples These are the easiest. You simply dab on white paint (Or light grey_ two or three at a time in the same spot for each dapple with a small frayed shader. Add more dapple in a random and somewhat irregular pattern over the dark area. (Refer to photos for ideas on where to locate dapples.) The dapples should not be perfectly arranged or spaced, and for the best results - they should vary a bit in size and shape/ Dabbing the brush two or three times on each spot will help 'set' the color into darker paint. After the dapple have been added, take a small, dry shader and barely stipple blend the edges. Overdoing it will cause the dapples to be muted or fade away. Once you have an area done, you can take a larger dry shader or filbert to lightly smooth over the area. At this point, you can pick out the dapple centers by dotting on a bit more light color as needed. Likewise, you can dot in a bit more dark color between the dapples. Star dapples A small shader or bright brush that holds a straight edge is required. With white paint on the brush, dot the brush on once, rotate the brush, dot again; rotate and dot once more. You should end up with an asterick, or start type of shape. The "lines" of white don't have to be centered - varting the technigue and location a bit you can create 3-7 points, or 'spikes'. on the dapples. Splotchy dapples Large splotchy dapples aren't much different than the round once to paint. Begin by badding on the center as with a regular smooth dapple, but slightly move or rotate the brush as you go to get a more irregular shape. The dapple should appear to have some 'nubs' sticking around the edges. Touch up the dapples as needed by lightly stippling with a small round brush. Splotchy dapples usually react well to a light final smoothing. The warping and shifting of color usually helps accentuate them a bit. " There are the basics! Hope it helps a bit. LT

    Rant on

    SO stealing that picture for my FB ;p And yes people still don't get it! Gaming is fun and nothing Sad about it. :D Did you state that it had been the first time you had the chance to run a game in years when you posted the pic? If you did, the comment could have been referring the sad state of being unable to game for so long. If not, it looks like you've got some non friends on your friends list. So you got some pruning to do. Facebook is a tool for keeping in contact with friends, not a contest to get the highest number of so called facebook friends.
