Randomness XII: Eighteen! Purple! Squirrels!


Recommended Posts

 

 Hah! 

 

 While digging around the Lost Minis Wiki for an ID on a "Bob Ridolfi 28mm Vampiress and Cleric diorama" I'm thinking of picking up, I happened to be going through the RAFM section when I found a mini I used to own in their Vampyre Lords line - 3888 Queen of the Damned...

 

I used to have this lady years ago, but lost her somewhere along the way. I've been searching for another one for years and never managed to find the name and product number (Apparently I used to have a lot more non-RP/Grenadier minis than I thought I did), but I've only ever seen one as part of a $250 giant lot of stuff I just couldn't justify paying that much for even though it had a bunch of stuff I wanted in it.

 

 Also, just discovered that two of the figures I picked up in the same lot as the Grenadier Princess Achmiri set were 3880 Nightmare Illusionist (and the ghost he's summoning) from RAFM's Necromancers line...

 

 

EDIT: Hmm, interesting - Originally I was thinking that the Evilbay listing I mentioned was some sort of older Bob Ridolfi vignette or something, but it appears that it's actually somebody's unfinished project... :angry:

 

The "cleric" in this image is Reaper 02184 Jonas Kane...

 Not nearly as interesting if it's just a bunch of unrelated stuff rather than an actual vignette.

So, I went and checked equifax's site to see if I was effected, and guess what, both my husband and myself were. Yay :mellow:

 

What do we do about it? Well, equifax will give us a years worth of free monitoring. But the information that was stolen is basically good forever. 

 

And then hen all the articles on how to protect yourself are like "here's a bunch of online services that will protect you", but um, it was an online thing that got our information stolen. And it was supposed to be one of the most secure sites. <_<

 

Seriously.

 

Equifax's attempt at reparations for their leak is a slap in the face. Not only does it remove your ability to sue them, but I've also read that they won't pay out anything if you do get your identity stolen and someone racks up a huge debt in your name. So basically it's just a "we'll let you know if something happens for a year, but we won't do anything to stop it or pay for anything that happens."

 

Best thing to do is to put a security freeze on all 3 credit reports. Then no one can access your reports without you lifting the freeze, either temporarily or permanently. If you've been the victim of ID theft, it's free to put the freeze on but if you haven't it may cost some money. Not much though. For me it cost me $5 for each report, but I've heard about it costing as much as $15 depending on which state you're in.

 

Really sad thing about the Equifax leak is that the majority of Americans over the age of 18 are affected. It was 144 million people. That's almost half the population of the country in itself. Remove the people who don't have credit history because they've never had a loan or a credit card, and you've got probably 2/3 or more of all viable Americans being hit...

What's the bottom gunpla? I can read the label for the Banshee Norn and Nobel Gundam, but I can't read the bottom one.

I swear, it's like they know when I'm drinking, and they stick this ridiculous broccoli in front of me knowing I'll buy it*:

Been running around all day:  Went to the Groton Area Chief Petty Officers Association tag sale at 7am.  Picked up a bunch of stuff but the only thing hobby related was a couple of aquarium decorations that will be turned into terrain.  Then took Middle Daughter to her car wash fundraiser for Venture Crew.  And finally, went to the Citadel to get in a few games for the Mystic Vale tournament.  Whole I was there,  a fellow by the name of Bob was buying up a couple of bags worth of the old RalPartha and Grenadier minis.

      It's definitely a worm, and it's definitely purple. Speed paint.

      Etherfields has some strange miniatures concepts.
      I wanted to embrace the dreamlike quality of them all by giving them a unified mood. So all of these minis use purple shadows and pale green highlighting.

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      These guys are the truly random offerings I have wrapped up so far this year.  Many were half-finished somewhere beforehand, but I don't keep track of start dates.

      To start of 2019 with hopes of a revised Mordheim, I offer another (converted) Pit Fighter to the bloody streets.
       

       
      Mantic's scatter terrain from Terrain Crate
       

       

      A fat jailer from Paizo



      A Dwarf Prisoner from the same Paizo set.


       
       
      An iconic Rat Catch from Mega Minis.  I think Turnkey Miniatures makes it these days.

      So I realized I only had one painted dwarf (!) when one of my GMs asked me if I had anything for the Jadeborn, a race in Exalted that is roughly equivalent to dwarves except for the 0.001% who are roughly equivalent to elves. And they are also sort of stone golems. Based on jade.
       
      I thought Reaper's 60184: Meyanda, Android Priestess, sculpted by Bobby Jackson, would do well for one of the elfy artisan Jadeborn and I pulled out a random assortment of seven (because of course) dwarves for the worker and warrior Jadeborn.
       
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
       
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
       
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.
       
      I left a few crystal and gem areas white so they will have more luminosity later.
       

      Left to right:
      Reaper 60184, Meyanda Android Priestess; Ral Partha; Hasslefree HFD014 Hatherley; Oathsworn Miniatures; Oathsworn Miniatures; Red Box Games; Stonehaven Miniatures; Reaper 14143: Kara Foehunter, Dwarf Hero
       
      Details:

       
      The Ral Partha dwarf is tiny!
