Tha deff dumpster

I feel yer pain, both of yez. I am fortunate to have a partner who encourages me, though, with minis. "OMG! IT COMES WITH THAT MANY GOBLINS! GET IT! GET IT! WHAT? YOU WEREN'T GOING TO GET THOSE ADO

Yes. My current strategy is to keep clicking on things until there' nothing left to get.

Get cheap bones models to practice on. There's a few nekkid girls to practice skin tones on. For me, knowing how cheap the bones are makes me less afraid to ruin them.

I don't know about nekkid but I picked out several Bones minis for skin tests (mostly ladies showing skin or barbarian men).  Seoni just happens to be the first one.

Weekend Quest: Make a mess doing something constructive/fun.  Show us the results.

I'm going to have to pass.  We're going to be driving several hours tomorrow to see a Cirque du Soleil show finally.  (This will be our third attempt to see it.)

At good old Anglo Saxon University?  Sorry... my brother got his undergrad there and after visiting once it was what I always called it.  I hope there is more diversity now.  Mostly I remember an old beat up mexican food restaurant that had fabulous fajitas from my visit, but, that was a long time ago, a long time indeed.

Nah, the con (and extremely small for the term) is going to be at the library.  The group responsible for it formed out of a group of euro board gamers, but there is some miniature and RPG play as well.

August 10: What do struggle with the most, hobby-wise? (Can be a top 3 or 5 list if you like.)

 

Like pretty much everyone else that has replied to this one, motivation.

I love to paint and can happily spend all day doing it, but all too often I find myself making excuses to not paint.

 

I also struggle to prep minis. I'm not very good at assembling non-plastic minis and I suck at filling gaps/smoothing seam-lines (although I seem to have made a bit of progress on this front recently).

I'm headed to an antique gun and knife show on the morrow, but I also get my Stynylrez primer in the mail today. I plan on playing with it on Bones. I will post pictures of the ensuing mess. 

 

I also get to play with my new airbrush, so I plan on getting a head jump start plan thingie on some Christmas decorations. And maybe some Halloween stockings. I will post pictures. 

What kind of 'brush did you get?

(George is nosey...)

I forgot to take pictures but I had a ton of fun at the weekend shooting Nerf guns with my kids.  We tidied up afterwards but that still counts right?

Oh shoot! I should have taken a picture of the mess I made making soup for my dad. That was a pretty creative endevour!

 

ETA: I did take one picture. It's of the item I used as a make-shift cutting board, since my dad had none.

Well, I did make a bit of a mess this weekend, doing fun things. See here:

Mostly pictures of the end result, but I generated a surprising amount of saw dust and thought that I might start a fire.  In the make a mess, but not have a particularly good time column, Awesome Wife and I spent a bunch of time this weekend shifting rooms around for our girls.  the heavy lifting (and cleaning) is done, now it's just onto the organizing.
