  1. I shall forever more associate the GnR song "Welcome to the Jungle" with the animated movie MegaMind. It always makes me giggle now.
  2. The beacons are lit! The beacons are lit! The Randomness Thread calls for rebirth!
  3. Randomness XVII: That coronal mass ejection was surprisingly violent.
  4. I backed, though I have some mild reservations which have more to do with how often I will get this to the table rather than with fulfillment. Having a solo mode helps with that concern. Good to see the solo mode is not dependent upon the yet to be written app. I'm willing to give a newcomer a chance at $95 rather than another CMON fiasco. I've only had one KS not fulfill the promised goods at all, and even then I got a bunch of STL files out of it. YMMV.
  5. If you really want primer, you can buy a rattle can and spray a puddle on a piece of glass or an old dinner plate, and use a brush to apply the primer to the model. Not a workable solution for a more than the odd spot repair, but it does work.
  6. Fox urine, if you can find it. Tractor Supply carries it, I think. Other farm supply places might as well.
  7. The ninja rodent that was terrorizing our kitchen has been dealt with. I do feel a bit of remorse for any suffering incurred, but judging by the results it did not last long. At least it wasn't another racoon in the attic. I was catching them in a live trap (legal for me as a landowner), patching the hole in the soffit and letting them go. But one kept coming back and making a new hole, so he died of rapid lead poisoning. I really am fond of wildlife, just not in my house.
  8. Glazing might help; I think I would map out the areas of violet and teal and use a blue glaze to transition them, as both of those hues have blue in common. Clear blue from Reaper or a blue acrylic ink would work better than blue paint. However I would try wet blending. There are lots of videos on YouTube on the technique. It might also work better if you blend the blue into the violet, and the blue into the teal, but try to avoid blending the teal and violet as they only have blue in common. It can be done, but it will be harder.
  9. GW shades are essentially paint thinned with acrylic medium. Even the matte medium will be a bit glossy. You can try thinning the shade with water but you might get tide marks. I used to make my own matte washes with water, paint and acrylic ink. Alternatively you can reapply the highlights.
  10. The wife and I have tired Legends of Andor. Definitely a game that requires careful planning. We will try that second scenario again.
  11. Recently acquired a few expansions for Zombicide: Black Plague. For some reason apocalyptic pandemics are on my mind... Wulfsburg Hero Box 1 (which implies there is a Hero Box 2, but no such beast seems to exist) Special Guest Mark Simonetti I mainly want more heroes, in particular more female heroes in practical cloths and gear. The wolves are just a happy bonus. I'm considering getting the Deadeye Walkers to spice up the games a bit.
