So it turns out that coffee pods not only contain coffee grounds, which I'm accumulating for ground-cover on a piece, they ALSO contain (well, this brand does) two perfectly round, rigid plastic mesh screens per pod.


Just in case any of you crazy scratch-builders needed to know.

Ya know those new-fangled coffee machines? They take a little pre-measured plastic capsule of coffee grind, ensuring consistent results (also makes sure you don't get old coffee smear building up and wrecking the flavour). They're a bit similar, in looks, to those individual heat-sealed milk servings you sometimes get in motel fridges.


However they are a sealed unit without the peel-off foil top; you put the whole thing in the coffee maker, then when you close the port a steel probe pierces the "pod" and injects hot water, and coffee comes out the spout.

Yeah, K-cups (for a certain type of machine); you also get those cups (smaller ones) in Nespresso machines. In Europe, those K-cups are mostly done by Nestle (Senseo I think?) and the brand I actually use, Dulce-Gusto.


I will have to gutter some of those pods... we go throw them pretty quickly anyway.

It depends on what you mean by "coffee pod" really. The k-cups are comparatively new. I'm not fond of them because I don't like all that waste every time I want a cup of coffee, but there's been another sort of pod available in Europe for many many years. It's basically an espresso machine, which uses small paper pods (they look a lot like slightly smaller, denser Tetley tea bags) instead of the usual scoop system. They're great, efficient, and all of the waste is biodegradable. I'm not entirely clear on which of these SR is referring to tbh.

Yeah. Given a selection of beverages this morning at JFK, what did I get? What, you ask?


A Tropicana bottle. For the C-A-P.


Thank you guys...

Love the Tropicana caps. Planning on using them for Menoth Warjack bases.

      Next in line: 77049, Bones Arthrand Nightblade, Elf Ranger.


      I tried priming with a 1:1 mix of Blue Liner:White Brush On Primer.  There were a few mold lines and casting valleys that showed up.  I put a layer of Brush On Sealer on them.  We’ll see how that worked.

      Taking a hiatus on the Mocking Beast.
      Trying to gain some victory in numbers on my Bonesium Horde.  I have completed the beetle swarms, spider swarms, and skeletons without WIP. 
      I’m going to do the goblins now.  I plan two batches: one yellow/ochre, and the other tangerine.  Some nice “non-Greenskins.”

      Several of these required boiling.  Some are still leaning.  The spears are straighter.  One of these was the beneficiary of a weapon swap.  I had given Danar, Male Assassin 77030 his shield for a spiked shield.  In return, we have a dual wielding goblin!

      This one is next in line.  He needs a better base.  

      This is a standard Reaper 1 inch base.  And a sheet of embossed styrene cobblestone, for model railroading.  I superglued it on, trimmed around it with an X-Acto, then sanded it down to 800 grit.  Any gap left is going to get the Brush On Sealer treatment to deal with the seam.  After this I just superglued the Mocking Beast on.  No pin.

      Here is my BONES version of the Eye Beast.
      This is my project going model-by-model down the Bones I Kickstarter rewards images through all my models, and logging them as WIP.
      And bringing along any pewter versions I have for the ride.
      WIP Here:
      These guys are very rewarding and great practice for eyes.
      I coated the eyes and mouth with brush on gloss varnish to give it that live, wet, salivating look.
      C/C Welcome.

      I started this to be the BBEG for Dragon's Demand.
      I really enjoyed painting it.  This is my first full dragon miniature painted.
      I spent a lot of time on it, and I'm pleased with the outcome.
      I hope you like it.  This was my first time using Birch seed pod debris as leaves, and I think they look good.
      Here is the link to the WIP:
      C&C welcome.
