  1. "Tho' the Beafts of this New VVorld be Straunge and Ungainly, as the Porpentine and the grisly great Bear, yet Smigo has proven moft capable in subduing them. "It is vvhifpered that his mother was a Cunning-vvoman and used Divelish Artes to have maftery over the Beafts of the Field, yet it feems that Smigo uses no more than hif God-given VVits and Natural Philosophie to tame them. "The birds found here are of moft enormous Size, vvith naked Heads vvattl'd and Carunculated like a Vulture's, yet in appeearance more like a monftrous Fowl. "They bear a tail-fan like the Pea-Cock of the Indies, yet not so Sumptuous in color or Pattern, but rather ticked and mottled in Brovvn, Rust, and VVhite. "The autochthons of this Land, vvith vvhom an Interpreter hath Convers'd, report that thefe Birds are priz'd for their Tail-Feathers, vvhich provide Adornment; and also their Flesh, vvhich is good to eat, and of a Quantity that much may be preserv'd for the time of Hunger. "In this as in other Matters, the Indigenes may be trufted, for the Fowl is pleafant and hearty fare when roafted; much Improved with herbs and Salt" What a fun sculpt! This little guy is very expressive. I am afraid that in the year between acquisition and painting I dropped it a couple of times, which is why Smigo's blunderbuss has been replaced with an eyelet. (Had to glue the turkey's legs back on once or twice, but that doesn't show as much.) We've seen the Puritans before ( here ) and the Native Americans are Reaper's Raven (59002) and Shaman (59010). I finally got a camera to replace the one that died in November, so this is late, but better than never! Hope you all enjoyed the previous feast of plenty and will enjoy the upcoming holidays!
  2. As the temperature drops the Mouslings begin to emerge...
  3. So I have just woken up from what I would call more like a 4ish hour nap rather than sleeping (I don't recommend drinking Mountain Dew while baking until 3am; seriously, don't do it, it's a terrible idea) and it has left me feeling awfully sentimental. When I discovered that miniatures were a thing and then immediately afterwards that the Reaper forum existed, I thought that I was just finding a new hobby to spend a little bit of time on occasionally. I thought I would just paint things from time to time and post them up to get feedback to help me improve. I had no idea that this place would become so elfing important to me, but it has. I found not just a place to share a mutual hobby, but an internet home where I feel comfortable being my weird self and sharing my insecurities and my daily nonsense. A place where I enjoy hearing about all of your days and your successes and commiserating over your hard times. This is truly the most welcoming and accepting forum that I've ever had the privilege of being a part of. Even on my worst of days, even when I've gotten my feathers ruffled or been in a rotten mood or when I had to sit out for a few months due to personal issues, you guys have always been here and always welcomed me back. I'm so grateful for all of you, all of the old faces, all of the new ones, all of the ones that keep changing their avatars so that I then have to get used to a new face on an old name. And I am so grateful to Reaper for contributing so much to this hobby and for giving us this place and for keeping it in order so that it is a safe environment for all of us to share our lives with each other. I wish you all the best day possible, whether you're sharing it with your families, going it alone, or working or doing whatever; whether it's Thanksgiving Day in your country or not. You're an exceptional group of people. Thank you.
  4. Feel free to add your own recipes to the collection. *coughMiss Melons Sour Cream Cakecough* This one was asked for by PcktLnt: No pies here. Just cranberry relish. To put on everything. Put it on the turkey. Put it on the Thanksgiving Sandwiches. Put it on the vanilla ice cream. Put it on a spoon and straight in my belly... (Put the recipe on the forums if anyone asks for it...) Asks for it. Please. ^__^ Old family recipe handed down through generations of BH&G cookbooks: Prep: 15 minutes, Chill: 2 hrs Makes: 2.5 cups 3/4 cup apple or orange juice (I use orange juice) 1/2 to 2/3 cup sugar (I use 1/2 cup Stevia In The Raw; SWMBO's diabetic) 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg dash ground cloves (go lightly here) 1 12-oz pkg (3 cups) fresh cranberries 1/2 cup golden raisins 1/2 cup chopped pecans (I substitute chopped walnuts) In medium saucepan, combine juice, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Stir over medium heat until sugar is dissolved. Add cranberries and raisins. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Stir for 3-4 minutes or until cranberries pop. Remove from heat. Stir in nuts. Cover and chill at least 2 hours before serving.
  5. Happy Turkey Day to all my fellow Canadians! So what are we thankful for? Here's my list (in no particular order) 1- Reaper; Reaper forum; Reaper members (Phew! Got that out of the way.) 2- Family & friends. Though since I moved a gazillion miles away form them and still single, they're still close to me and I don't feel lonely. And I'm meeting new ones around here. 3- Career. Just celebrated my 1 year anniversary with my company and even being away for 5 months on disability, I'm still an employee! 4- HEALTH. Born with a faulty heart valve, it's finally fixed, and my cardiologist just gave me the OK to go back to work and join a gym again. So my health and morale will improve even more.
  6. I will be traveling most of the day tomorrow, so I won't get a chance to pop on here much if any. I wanted to take a minute out to tell all of you I hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving (for those of you who celebrate). Everyone be safe. One of the many things I have to be thankful for this year is the wonderful community here, and everyone who participates. Take care.
  7. Just in case i get lost in the unavoidable swarm that is my home during the holidays (although now i have a room fool of paint and nekid minis I might be able to use as a hiding place) I wanted to let everyone at Reaper, and everyone in the forum community know to have a great thanksgiving and holiday season. I'm sure ill poke in but just in case... If im not back by jan 5th send a search party
