  1. Yeah both the mat and the docs are real nice.
  2. So I have some packaging from a coffee grinder that has a very interesting shape but on the inside. Is there anything that would stop me from doing a plaster casting inside styrofoam?
  3. Not dirt cheap but I like Maelstrom's Edge terrain sprues for this kind of thing. By using other bits and bobs you could stretch them out pretty far. The biggest problem with the granny grating is that it doesn't glue down well. Ideally, you'd cut some windows cut bigger pieces of grating and then glue down a cardboard frame to make a kind of sandwhich.
  4. Some garden pics: Garlic and Tomatoes. Herbs in the near bit: In the back, Kale and cherry tomatoes, Foreground are peppers in cloth containers which are doing much better than previous attempts in the ground or plastic containers. The trash can is occasionally filled with water so I can dunk a watering can instead of run out the hose when just a few plants need a drink. Okra in front beans behind there and cucumbers on the trellis in the far corner. In the corners are some small zucchini plants that are behind schedule because I accidentally planted some cucumbers in those spots. This guys wings are seriously not large enough for flight... A sunset:
  5. If these were from GW's line then paining the eyes was no small feat. Well, quite small, actually.
  6. Another paint n take. A first time painter went with this coversion by paint: Some of my younger participants seem to be getting a bit more patient: Not sure these were done when I too this pic:
  7. One friend had something come up so I played instead of just running the game. Even with it being a first game and given we did use the Bolt Action dice pull for activations, a1000pts game went quick. As to @Werkrobotwerk's advice, I would say that 2+ armor saves mean a hell of a lot more than they do in modern 40k. Good time was had by all. My friend was certainly turned from a bit skeptical towards evangelizing GDR to anyone standing nearby. "Look at these rules" "They have an army builder and it's free" "They put your special rules on the sheet", etc. etc. Haven't looked at this. As a Kings of War fan how would your compare it?
  8. I'm going to try and get my 40k playing friends into this today. It's got to be better even if I don't understand why wounds and melee ability have to be special rules instead of stats. Is 1000pts a good intro level?
  9. Pureed garlic scapes make a nice flavor enhancer for broccoli-cauliflower soup. That is all.
  10. Forgot to mention that my local farm/rural store never got seed potatoes so I put some grocery store potatoes in some containers on the off chance they'd sprout. Just my luck that I didn't have any already sprouted spuds in the pantry.
  11. Beans, Zucchini , and cucumbers are sprouting. Lettuce production saved by the return of cooler temps.
  12. Another of these done. Didn't really give enough advance notice so there weren't many people but it just takes a few first time painters to make my day.
  13. Let me try: 3 meters is about 120 25mm bases laid end to end.
  14. Well in California you should have quite a few options. In other news, lettuce and radishes are starting to grow. Seemes I had real bad luck with spinach and peas germinating I only see the occasional plant of either. It was pretty wet and cold until now. Ethiopian Kale did good, other kales only OK. Weeds quite vigorous. Put in my tomato plants, peppers and various herbs.
  15. Haha. Did not expect a tutorial on how to make it. You must have the most expensive trees in wargaming history but also the happiest daughter.
  16. Finally got around to pledging. Whole world/china/shipping situation told my brain that even pledging is irrational. Heart said "But it's Reaper!".
  17. Yeah, the long winter of neglect is coming to an end. Cleared out junk and planted some lettuce, spinach, radishes and various kales. Last years kale did not survive like it did last winter. As far as I know last winter was more severe but what would I know I was in Florida. Also the garlic that I planted last fall is coming up so the seed saving was a success.
  18. Might well be easier for you to fill in a small insert or cut down a bigger one than for Reaper to make molds for every 5mm of base size. Warlord makes them to put prone shooters on. They are quite flat with no real sides.
  19. Interesting. I was just playing Star Wars: The Old Republic and wondered if there were files out there to do and Old Republic force for Legion.
  20. Yeah it's somewhat frustrating how many medicines have drowsiness as a side effect and how hard it is to deal with long term sleep issues.
  21. Anyone playing this? A while ago one of my gaming buddies bought a copy and since I had picked up a few random cars with this game in mind, I jumped in. It's taken off at my store and it seems that the low cost of entry and the instant fun (we've spent more time trying to get to the first gate than anything else) makes for a good way to tempt people away from 40k. Maybe it's just that we are still learning but so far it seems a bit like Bolt Action in that, despite being simple enough, it's surprising how long a game takes. Finally one of the players just showed off his port-a-potty transport truck and I, for one, am jealous.
