  1. Presenting Veteran Hemlocke, she's part of the Morticians Guild from the game Guild Ball by Steamforged Games. Originally part of the Union, she managed to escape it's destruction and, being what passes for a magic user in the Guild Ball world, found a home with the spirit summoners of the Morticians. Overall I'm happy with this one, but she is a bit rough in places, painting that snake was a big pain in the bum! As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  2. Presenting Harriet the Hat, she represents the veteran version of Harry the Hat and is part of the Engineers Guild in the now defunct game Guild Ball by Steamforged Games. She was originally a down on her luck student, before encountering a certain cursed piece of headgear, now people say she's like a completely different person. I'm pretty pleased with how this one turned out, even though she doesn't photograph too well. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  3. All the Kickstarters I've backed in the last few years should start delivering next year hopefully, that'll be fun.
  4. I turned off substitutions for my grocery deliveries ages ago, much easier to just go without than fight to return whatever nonsense they thought was an adequate replacement. Although it did work out for me once, they accidentally gave me 40 pints of UHT milk and it would've been such a hassle for the driver to sort it out they just let me keep it for free.
  5. Worryingly, despite putting quite a bit of thought into this one, I couldn't find an answer. As far as I can tell, I'm simply either happy or I'm not. No and no. Neither is much of a thing around these parts yet, although I am seeing more carved pumpkin decorations than I used to (I'm guessing the larger supermarkets sell them, because none of the local places do).
  6. Got a huge parcel delivered today. Turned out to be the new hand saw I'd ordered, rattling around inside a box that could've comfortably held at least 20 of them.
  7. A few months ago. My housemate was feeling too poorly to get to bed to sleep, and since this normally results in a hospital trip in the wee hours of the morning (the time before this, it turned out she had double pneumonia), I stayed up just in case. Fortunately it wasn't anything serious.
  8. You've done a great job on all three of them, particularly their shields.
  9. Happens to me all the time! Being easily distracted, plus prone to quickly losing interest, while being a very slow painter just isn't a great combo in this hobby. I've learnt that trying to just power through to completion doesn't work for me, so I set things aside in the hope I'll finish them one day, even though I know that most of the time I never will.
  10. I don't watch a lot of Youtube, but one specific channel that springs to mind is King of Average. I started following him last year for his upcoming Kickstarter news/reviews stuff, but they got increasingly long and ranty, so I stopped watching (which was probably a good thing for my wallet too). In more general terms, watching boardgame playthroughs. It's not that I've lost interest, they just tend to be so dang long!
  11. Last week I made Pear and Parsnip Soup, which was nicer than expected (fruit in a savoury dish is still a fairly new concept for me). I'm still working my way through all the new soup recipes I found, so the next one I'm trying is Chinese Chicken Noodle Soup with Peanut Sauce, don't know if I'll enjoy it, but it sounds nice.
  12. Woot! I've finally finished season 2 of Supernatural! Only another 13 (I think) seasons to go.
  13. Nice! I like it's 'freshly risen' look.
  14. Opening a door the adventurers find themselves in a short corridor with another door at the end, halfway down there is a button set in the wall. If both doors are closed, pushing the button does nothing, but if one door is open pushing the button causes either fire or acid (depending on which door is open) to rain down from the ceiling. However, if both doors are open pushing the button makes the corridor rotate to reveal hidden sections of the dungeon full of goodies (and if you want to be really annoying, quest important items). However, to get back to the main dungeon you have to do the opposite. Both doors open = poison gas, one door open = spikes from the walls or a drop pit, both doors closed = corridor rotates. No idea if RPGers would find this fun or deeply irritating
