  1. 1. Which Would You Rather Be



Recommended Posts

In the classical sense, werewolves were only wolves when the Call came to do battle with the forces of darkness.

 

I don't know where the full moon thing came from, but I suspect it may be recent.

Sounds like I'm due for a werewolf transformation..................FOR I WAS BORN ON A FRIDAY THE 13TH!!!    BWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!! 

Vampires are gross. They are meant to be gross. They do not glitter and glow in the sunlight, they do not sparkle with love and want to whisk you away to love you forever in some romantic castle. See,

I have to say werewolf. In part because you get to be "part man, part dog. I'm my own best friend" lol

Ok, fair point, but then it comes down to how we're defining our monsters, in the classical sense, in the D&D sense, or in the Underworld sense. Also, I'm not sure that I would call the ability to blend in a weakness, necessarily.

 

You call it blending in, I call it frailty.  :;):

 

Says the guy that needs me to protect him when the sun's up. ::P:

 

Besides, blending in=camouflage. If you can't find  me, you can't hurt me. ^_^

Wait a minute, I'm not conceding that easily... you'll be scratching all the time and smelling like a wet dog, that will give you away!

Actually, there are flea shampoos that have an herbal smell to them, not unpleasant at all.

 

 

Next?

 

So you'll have a faint herbal scent that helps mask the wet dog smell? 

 

What about when you see a couple of kids playing ball, will you be able to stop yourself from running after the ball and trying to catch it with your mouth and giving away your true self?

so, apparently the full moon thing comes from a French, German, and Italian tradition of turning into a wolf, by on certain nights, sleeping outside, with the full moon shining on your face. Other various traditions indicate being able to turn wolf at will. by donning a wolf skin, or wearing a belt made of wolf skin The ability to rapidly heal from wounds seems to be traditional, but the weakness to silver comes from the 20th century.

So full moon changing = classical?

Insults are the last resort of those whose arguments have failed. Unless you've got something better than that, I'd say checkmate.

no, it predates Hollywood. I think it's from French folklore, but not certain.....It's Research Time

Some connection with the moon predates Hollywood, but the transformation every full moon seems more novel. That monthly transition doesn't even appear in "The Wolf Man", where the required conditions are wolfsbane in bloom under a full autumn moon.

 

In "Frankenstein Meets the Wolf Man", it is changed to every full moon.

Not meant as an insult Sir Wolf, it was a valid question on whether your baser instincts kick in with something as simple as a ball? How about the smell of blood or a rare steak? Are you able to control yourself?

      You'll take my life, but I'll take yours too
      You'll fire your musket, but I'll run you through
      So when you're waiting for the next attack
      You'd better stand, there's no turning back
       

       
      I'm going to be building/converting/sculpting my own copy of Eddie from this artwork. I'm just going to do the central figure, not the battlefield around him.
       
      For those who don't know, the song 'The Trooper' is based on the Charge of the Light Brigade, an action during the Battle of Balaclava during the Crimean War.
       
      So, before I get started, a question:
       
      The artist who did this piece (Derek Riggs) applied a little creative license to the flag that Eddie is carrying. It is not historically accurate to the best of my knowledge and research. If you know differently, please enlighten me.
       
      When I get to that point, do I try to recreate the flag as seen in the artwork, or go with something a little more accurate? Or is that a detail that most people will not notice?

      Here's 2 beetle swarms that I knocked out pretty quick this weekend. 
       
      One basic brown, and the other with a more metallic look to them.
       
      Let me know what you think.

      I finished Mason Thornwarden a little earlier today. He's painted up to a (hopefully) decent tabletop standard. I've been reading a lot about Rangers of Shadowdeep on various blogs all over the internet; I can neither confirm nor deny that is what may have led to his selection for the paintbrush.
       
      Let me know what you think of him, please.

      I just finished painting this figure yesterday. It's from the old Grenadier boxed set 'Fighting Men' #2005. Not really a whole lot to say about him, I spent about 3 hours painting him to a good tabletop level. I got a little burned out on painting for a while, feeling like I had to paint everything to a competition level. Well, sometimes it's just fun to slap some paint on a figure in a few hours just to take your mind off of other things. I had just forgotten that somewhere along the way.
       
      Anyhow, here he is, let me know what you think.

      I finally managed to climb back on the painting horse. I painted this vampire to my usual tabletop standard. He'll be the leader for a Mordheim/Frostgrave/random skirmish game warband.
