  1. What is this, the hot sauce thread? Where are the Instigators to rattle the gates of Reaperguard? We Rabble Rousers nned instigating!
  2. You are not the only one. For thirty year I have regaled people about the time I fixed a computer by laying on hands.
  3. 1. Open box 2. Take inventory to confirm nothing is amiss 3. Sort into general groupings in order of paint queue. a. Dragons (Choose one for "There Be Dragons" contest. Someone has to supply the laughter!) b. Giant Skeleton. Base coat and shade this. c. Western figs (never have enough Western Figs) d. SF e. all others 4. Add the bones to the queue (Plagerized from above post and edited for me.)
  4. Maybe outside cool and the inside molten like he melted his way up? Using OSL from the magma below? Way beyond my skill level but not my imagination.
  5. Paint them differently. If one is painted in the blue family I will paint the other in the Brown or Green. If I am feeling creative I will modify them. I had two minis with no name. (Clint with pancho). I modifoied one to be mounted so that I could put him on a horse.
  6. We have had our snow here. We are now in our January Thaw. Temps will get into 60's. Knew it would happen because I bought a new pair of X-C skis after my last pair broke out skiing. I keep my snowblower in the garage. No fences in our neigborhood and we have a restriction on our deed that says no outbuildings. Would have a problem with that anyway. The back yard drops 65' in about 200'. It's nice for wildlife though. My paining area in in the walkout basement. I have been sitting in my chair and have had a coyote walk by 6 to 8 feet away. And the biggest attack on our bird feeder is when the wild turkeys try to eat there.
  7. I have to say the topic of bribing me is kind of a touchy subject. I can joke a little bit, but once we start talking about money, I get uncomfortable. In my real life, I am an elected official and there are laws I am held to that the average person doesn't have to deal with in their life. I just finished up my Campaign Finance Paperwork for 2012, I toe the line to do the right thing because I believe I make a difference in my office. With as interconnected that everything on the internet is, I would be most unhappy for this fun thread to turn into a political nightmare for me. Please respect that I really don't take bribes. Now, body disposal on the other hand.... As for the books, yes, I read a lot. I finished 207 books during the calendar year 2012, surpassing my goal of 200. I use Goodreads to track my books. Yes, some were comics, but only the graphic novel compilations, not the monthly small ones. I didn't count the ones I read to my students aka picture books, although I recommend Weird Al's children's book highly. I don't own a lot of books, I am an avid Library Patron. I prefer paper over electronic, do not own a reader device. I have slowed down my reading since I got my bifocals, I still forget to wear the glasses. At my current rate, I am 5 books behind to meet the 2013 goal of 200, but my weekend is booked (ha!) to read. You want to stay away from my neck of the woods. For the last few years many of the local pols have been convicted of taking bribes. Two people that I worked with included. I have to stay away from the subject myself. On the other hand I believe in ownership of books. I will read a book in hardback from the library, but I will buy it when it comes out in paperback.I think my linear shelf space is about 320' (40' of bookcases by 8 or more sheves per bookcase). Libraries tend to only have the current books except for "literature". I will go back and reread a series or book I enjoyed. It has been many years so I am rereading Agatha Christie in alphbetical order. At the S's right now.
  8. One sugestion to make it more holoweenish is one or more tombstones. Mega minis has these also.
  9. Or like Buglips nWIP (no Work in Progress)
  10. Unfortunatly I drank too much caffeine in my youth and my body no longer tolerates it! I have to get my magic the old fashion way, with paint fumes.
  11. Now you have to give a fiddle concert. What? Not that kind of bow? Is it a preety pink one?
  12. Rabble Rabble Rabble. Was that rousing enough?
  13. Living in Ohio we have winter, but I just warm up minis and paint can, put the minis on the cardboard box top to a paper box. I step outside and spray on the primer. I did this last week when the outside temp was 28 F. Only outside about 20 to 30 sec. Seems to work fine.
  14. There is always green stuff. The clouds would be fairly eazy.
  15. My wife does not yet, but in March she probably will! (Then in June? for Blackwater Gulch almost guaranteed.)
  16. I just collect badly painted minis.
  17. You never have enough Giant Rats! Just swarm the PCs from all four sides at once.
  18. I tried the pining on the Bugbear's club. I was able to put a brass pin in and even without heating it kept straight.
  19. Remember to use mason bits in the drill. That would help.
  20. It is to be done this year. I would hold off on Takhismat. I'm thinking 2015 for that beeing done!
  21. Someone sugested a spin method. I was thinking spin in a plastic container. Zip tie the mini to the top. screw on the container and spin. No QS gets on the carpet. I thought plastic in case the string or shoelace breaks. That way the container does not shower glass all over.
  22. I'll have to look at the animated Hobit. That might have started it. My memory is that they were like the Grinch.
  23. If I get better at painting I'll join with my bones Dragons.
