    Assorted nerdy stuff.(Painting minis,playing Dungeons and Dragons,and BattleTech,reading,drawing,building models,and blowing up stuff with my battle buddies.)
  1. What if its an enlarged gnome? On a serious note though,gnome minis do seem hard to come by though.Mabey the idea is that Gnomes and Halflings are similar in size,so the minis are possibly intended to be either.Then again mabey halfling minis dont look gnomish enough for the discering consumer.
  2. I was 4-14 myself so the 80's were my childhood years,not my highschool daze.For me personaly the decade was marked by Star Wars movies,Robotech cartoons,Terminator,Aliens,Bladerunner and Atari video games. I did have two older stepbrothers,one of which was fully into the Big Hair Metal scene,so I guess I was fortunate enough to recieve greater than average exposure to the music for a kid my age. My wife is ten years my senior,and occasionally something from the 80's comes up in conversation.She'll ask me what I was doing a certain year,like 83 for example,and I have to reply,"Um,I was in 1st grade then." Usually our kids make me feel like an old fogey,but after reading some of this,I feel young by comparison.Thanks. :laugh: And remember,Youth and Speed is no match for Age and Cunning. (In an attempt to make an "on topic" comment,Ill post some pics of me as soon as I get a camera,and get some developed.Mabey Ill get a good one of a live fire at Camp Shelby this summer.)
  3. www.Dwarvenforge.com Dwarven Forge makes some nifty traps and things.Kinda pricey though. One of my buddies got a stuffed fanged rabit from an as of yet unamed female friend of his.I think its supposed to be the rabbit from Monty Python's "the Holy Grail".I believe he said she got it through Diamond P Distributors. And for slime,and gelatinous creatures,well,theres always room for Jell-O! :laugh: Seriously though,you could cast your own with a little bit of resin.One of my "Ill-get-around-to-it-someday" projects was to cast a resin Gelatinous Cube with a skeleton and a few peices of gold and silver glitter imbedded in it.Im not sure if the paint would survive immersion in semi cured resin though. If I ever get up off my butt and do it Ill let you know how it turns out.
  4. Should it be deep fried "Elvis" style,or eaten raw? How the heck would you deep fry a peanut butter and bannanna sandwich anyway?
  5. Thanks for the links Harlequin. :) Whats the deal with the tree rat? :oo: Anybody found a good Half Orc?
  6. How about Conan.I dont mean a generic barbarian,I mean CONAN!Scale replica sword and all...
  7. A Half-Orc.Ive yet to find a good half-orc.
  8. Hey,is that some of Larry Elmore's artwork?
  9. Are you sure its a bearded female? Mabey its the J. Edgar Hoover of Dwarves...
  10. Odd as it is,Garth Brooks started out doing Kiss covers,and was even on their latest tribute album. Actually a lot of the music on the local classic rock station is considered 'southern rock' which pretty much blurs the distinction between country and rock.(Although I dont exactly understand how CCR is considered 'southern' since good ol John Fogerty is from way up north somewhere.) I dont much care for the musical classification system that the industry invokes.It seems to me that way too often a great band cant get air time because they cant conviently be categorized as 'rock','country',or 'rap'.Everything else is labeled 'altenative'.That trend seems to be fading away now though,and Im glad of it.
  11. Nah,I think gangsta rap would probably be beelzebub's torture tunes of choice.I can imagine acres upon acres of broken down 200 dollar cars with 1000 dollar stereos blasting away for all eternity. Or worse...bubblegum pop. But hey,thats just an opinion.
  12. Jonnie Cash isnt so bad.Well,he wouldnt be my first choice for musical entertainment,but if there's a country guy I like,its probably Jonny Cash.
  13. Wow,lots of really good musical recomendations here.Now Im tempted to go out and expand my pathetically skimpy cd collection as opposed to expanding my more pathetically skimpy mini and supply collection. My wife and I share a stash of music on the hard drive and Ive noticed some odd combitations,like Disturbed's 'the Sickness',followed immediately by 'Jesus is just alright with me' by the Doobie Brothers.Then we have Rage Against the Machines' 'Calm Like a Bomb',and 'Flowers in Your Hair' by the Mamas and the Papas. Strangely enough,we both like it all. Ill listen to a pretty broad range of music while Im working on any hobby since my musical tastes at the moment has more to do with what kind of mood Im in rather than with what Im painting or working on. When it comes speciffically to mini painting though,I lean more to classic rock,since its a bit more laid back than Rob Zombie,or NiN,for example. I love Pink Floyd,Waters,or Gilmore either one,Jethro Tull,Dire Straits,Led Zeplin,Aerosmith,Black Sabbath,Creedance Clearwater Revival,the Eagles,the Roling Stones,(especially 'paint it black') and ZZ Top,and the Doors,and Jimmi Hendrix. Those are just a few drops in the ocean of my favorite music. I noticed though that nobody mentioned Lorrenna McKinnet...I thought surely some of yall would listen to her stuff.
  14. "I have a very good friend in Rome named Biggus..." Watch Monty Python's 'the Life of Brian' for the rest. :laugh:
  15. Wow Lady Tam,you look a whole lot like a Luis Royo painting.
