Getting to Know Each Other - April 2016

Recommended Posts

 

 

My wife retired after 30 years with the state and started another job. Her retirement income did not have any withholding set up. She didn't notice this until starting the taxes.  :blink:

 

Not a serious problem, just an unpleasant surprise. And we're set for the future, I think.

 

 

Ouch. Sympathies, Doug. Is it bad enough to incur a penalty?

 

 

Return was accepted, so I think not.

 

As the years roll by, we'll see.   :B):

AQ19: Yes, I've painted some very small parts on a sprue before.  Not always my go-to method, but it's helpful for the wee stuff

I tend to use the sprue for tiny parts but minis no. Now model parts I will use the sprue as they are nice spot for my 'gator clip sticks when spray painting.

 

Besides more sprue bits for the melt bag for ReaperCon!!

Question — April 19th: Do you ever try painting models on the sprue?

It has happened with the Bones non-Pathfinder goblins, and the original Bones rats.

 

From the Reaper store, I'm not the only one.

Coming in sets of three models per sprue. I could do a specific paint scheme for each sprue. It's great for speed painting.

No, because then I would have to go back to prime and paint the little patches where they were cut off the sprue, and try to match the paint job that's on the rest of the model. Why do double work? :rock:

Nope.  I'd be worried about damaging the paint job while de-sprueing, and I don't want to have to patch the little bare spots afterwards.

Question — April 19th: Do you ever try painting models on the sprue?

 

Never - for many of the reasons already stated above.

 

Another issue for me is that I find it hard to visualize the model and paint scheme if it's still on the sprue.  If I ever tried painting a model on the sprue, I'd probably end up with highlights on the left arm as it the light source was from up high with the highlights on the right arm coming from a light source on the ground.   :wacko:

Despite having read how a lot of folks seem to think it's easier, I'm old and stubborn, so no.

Same here. Old and stubborn. So nope.

I might have tried it once, but I certainly don't now. I could maybe see doing it for the Bones that come on sprues, like the rats and goblins.

      New Slightly Revised Rules: 
    • By TGP
      The roolz:
       
      The obligatory rules posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. If I fail to post a question, Inara (possibly) will post a question of her own choice.
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      3.5 (Rule 3 may be the 2nd most broken rule.)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.

      Greetings forum things! Once again, I, the Griffin of Grumpiness snag the tattered robe of the Quisitor in my beak for this the ninth month of Old Rome's calendar and also the month all Turkeys Dread!
       
      Question for Thursday, Nov 1st:
      Halloween is behind us, how long will you tolerate the decorations thereof?
       
      When do yours (if you had some) get stowed away for next year?

      Penny ^ ...New model in blister. ^
       
      This guy is big enough to take up the footprint of four infantry skeletons. The penny is 19mm diameter. The plan is to give the figure a 40mm square, equivalent to four 20x20 bases arranged in a square.
       
      He will count as four members of the unit he'll be assigned to.
