Just got back from doing some errands around town, stopped in at Wallyworld & came upon this:

 

You know I had to buy it. I also picked up a large 3 drawer plastic storage unit. Going to use this for the minis I use thr most for my games. Also went into Home Dewpah & came out with a large tool box that features a large flat tray pull out. I'm gonna use this for my hobby tools/supplies so thr tray will be nice for knives,  brushes, files etc etc. 13 bucks too!

I have never wanted a POP so badly.

I treated myself the previous weekend with some early gifts from @Morihalda's 3d-printing shop on Etsy (at least I think it's Mori's, RumbeardTradingCo). They haven't arrived yet, and aren't scheduled to do so until possibly after Christmas, but I am excited as they're my first 3d-printed anythings... more excited about them than I am for Christmas, honestly.

 

Yup, that her & her husband's business venture (very popular booth over ReaperCon Weekend.

 

Yes! Thanks, y'all! :wub: Anything from that weekend is already shipped out, so you should see it soon (or have it now, even better)! We've been working super hard to get everything out for Christmas.

I'm looking forward to getting them... and watching them sit on my shelf while I envision them painted.

That Cupboard Mimic is awesome, disturbing, creepy and did I say Awesome?

I received an email from Pixologic today that says they're having a 10% off sale on Zbrush and Zbrush Core until December 28th.  I don't need those programs, but they do have a free version, so that's something anyone might try if they are considering getting into sculpting.

It seems like I am stocking up on crafting & inspirational supplies to enable me to lock myself away & create things for the remainder of my life...longer if I can manage the lich thing.

SO yesterday my Hot Wire Foam Factory order arrived, a 4-in-1 Pro Model Kit #K47:

A look at the cool tools inside:

Yesterday also saw the arrival of the Milliput I had ordered from Hobby Lobby. The Studson Studio videos on You Tube gave me the idea to mix Milliput & Kneadatite aka Green Stuff:

Studson's also created an interest in Howl's Moving Castle. While I am not planning on making my version of Studson's amazing Moving Castle model...yet, the details may very well be incorporated into The Swamp I am working on for my Last Hurrah Project:

Have I mentioned that I do have a tendency to get carried away with things?

Why the two packs of 'Standard'?  

(I only use the White Superfine version. )

The Standard is to mix with Green Stuff. I thought I'd use the Superfine as a stand alone sculpting medium.

Is there that much of a difference between Standard and Superfine besides color?

 

Beats me; i.e., I have never tried the Superfine before & I have only used the Standard a couple of times...it is nice to work with & the results are good.
I will let you know what the difference is other than the price that is.

Two things arriving today!

 

First up, a Safari Fire Dragon (three headed, wingless dragon with the central head breathing flame), which I only got because I had a big online coupon from Michaels, and it was the coolest Dragon on the Canadian storefront.

 

Also a buncha Grenadier minis via Mirliton. Almost all of them John Dennett sculpts (I think one Andrew Chernak ghoul is included in one pack). Demons, ghouls, deep ones, other weird and lovecraftian critters and a helsteed with its doomrider. I forgot to get the Polar Wyrm so I guess I'll have to get it when next I can afford a big minis order from Italy.
