    I liked the Tank Girl movie but I like quirky movies. Never read the comic.

    Headache from low caffeine is not normally a problem for me. The only thing caffeine usually affects is wakefulness. Sadly, I’m sure if I laid my head down for even an instant all these hairless apes around me would immediately need my assistance for some incomprehensible human ritual related to the great summoning they have been performing every day while I observe them. I haven’t actually figured out what result they are trying to achieve with all their arcane comings and goings but have managed to identify the spell name which is apparently ‘work’. I will report back as more detail is available.

    I was going to say the caffeine wasn’t really helping this morning and then realized I haven’t had any. Now trying to choose between consuming some or just going to sleep at my desk.

    Pretty sure I can guess how it ends...

    I did a helmet conversion years ago because the head that came with a miniature was missing the lower half. Essentially, I sawed the lower half of a different helmet off and Frankensteined the two together to make a beautiful chimera. Anyway, this morning I was eying that figure and really wanting to use that head on a different figure for a conversion. The problem being that I tend to really over-engineer joins so I’m genuinely concerned that attempting to remove it might destroy the helmet and the figure. The moral of this story is that you don’t actually have to make the join between the body and the head of a 28mm figure stronger than the actual miniature itself but if you do the miniature in question will thank its lucky stars that it was saved from the bits-robbers by the Great Builder’s idiotic need to ensure that no figure will fall apart during such common tabletop situations as earthquake, landslides, volcanic eruptions, and nuclear strikes.

    Citadel Contrast paints

    I've done two figures with it so far and like it for the most part. I don't slap it on quite as heavily as I've seen a lot of people do online just to avoid having to wick excess away. Overall I'm pretty happy with them for getting about 75-90% done in one or two coats and then finishing off with a bit of highlighting edges and some minor blending where the Contrast was splotchy. I wouldn't use solely Contrast other than for the purpose of getting something to tabletop super quick, but it's definitely a tool in the toolbox for me going forward. One thing I did notice is that they aren't all created equal. Some cover with much more saturation while others are closer to a wash. Also, with almost no exceptions I found that you can't really tell what your are going to end up with just looking at the paint in the pot or while it is still wet. You pretty much have to see it applied and dry to know what that particular one is going to end up looking like. Thankfully there are quite a few examples out there on the net so you can pretty much find examples of all the colors applied if you have one you haven't personally tried. I think it matters a lot what you're painting as well. For display obviously you would do a lot more in addition to them, but for tabletop they are going to be pretty awesome. I might actually paint that Moria goblin army now.

    Spent the afternoon experimenting with paints. In addition to the miniature, I got paint on me, the carpet, the table, and the doorknob. Gonna call it a success.
  9. I decided to paint my ‘Crimson Herald’ as more ‘King in Yellow’. First figure I’ve painted in a while but I’ve been meaning to try this color scheme on him since I picked him up.

    They only eat vegetables. I make no promises about their aggressive tendencies when they get hopped up on maple syrup.
