Randomness XVI: Brains versus Bleach - an Epic Rap Battle in Iambic Pentameter.

Recommended Posts

The Thanksgiving Day festivities have finally drawn to a close. A good 40 pounds of food were consumed or left the house in the form of leftover plates. And who knows how many pots of coffee, pitchers of tea, and random drinks were consumed (I know someone gave me a couple of fingers of scotch at one point, but I forgot to ask what it was before they left). The dogs even got their own designated treat plate of carrots and apple slices that everyone took turns commandeering whenever they wanted canine attention.

 

Many members of the family got to see each other for the first time since last year. And we got to meet a potential new family member in the form of someone's boyfriend (a very quiet young man who brought a big batch of homemade fry bread to share, so I liked him). Those staying late pitched in to clean up and as far as I can tell practically every dish in the house is washed.

 

The last house guest just bedded down for the night a few minutes ago. And now I'm going to quietly creep up to the attic to do a little painting. Hope everyone had a great holiday here in the states, and that everyone else had a fantastic Thursday.

And the Reiklings. Little %$#@&s like to climb up into the undercarriage and stab the tires with their spears, or cut the lines and drink the brake fluid. 

 

That's why you should drive really, really fast. If they try to stab your tires, the rapidly spinning rubber will rip the spears from their hands and throw them down onto the pavement. And the constant jouncing about will keep them from being able to drink. It's a known fact.

But if we use all the Purple on our letters like this, there isn't going to be enough left to paint with!

Which will bring down the Wrath of OneBoot.

I wish to avoid the Wrath of One Boot, her painted legions tend towards being Dragon heavy, and I am currently lacking in Anti-Dragon units.

Not to mention the other Forumites who use a lot of Purple. I can't match Cyr in a Necromantic Duel either.

Anyone who can't figure out that those were parodic ... might need a keeper with good explanation skills. And a great deal of patience.

Ah Canadian Thanksgiving...  So nice to be able to relax, have a stew slowly cooking away in the crock pot, and getting up at 09:00 on a Monday is a nice treat too...

 

Sitting at work on a Monday. Remind me to return the favor of a relaxing post late November on a Friday.

 

Ah American Thanksgiving... So nice to be able to relax, have leftovers readily available in the fridge, and getting up at 09:00 on a Friday is a nice treat too... (at least it will be when I go back to bed after posting this).

 

I'm just as surprised as you that I remembered to do this.

Well, I'm now mildly upset. A suspicion of mine has been confirmed. I'm missing some of my Magic the Gathering stuff. I first started suspecting it when I went through my cards as soon as I got them home from my mom's. I was going through them looking for a few that I knew I had, and I couldn't find them. I thought to myself "well, maybe I just missed them, I'll find them when I'm organizing them." But tonight I was going through and organizing them a bit, and decided to look for 2 cards that I know I had 4 separate copies of. I didn't find a single copy of either.

 

So now I'm gonna go to my mom's again and dig through my old closet to see if I missed them when I dragged the old storage totes out.

 

If its anything like my MtG collection when I stopped playing, a couple of years from now you'll find a deck or two stuffed somewhere with all the missing cards....

Today here was like any other day. Worked yesterday morning, shockingly only a half hour of OT but we were already getting time & half for 8 hrs. I got home, my wife had to go to Wallyworld due to son was out of toothpaste. Funny, how that place looks like when the side aisles have no product in them. They were prepping for the SALE!. Ended up coming home, watched a quarter of the Lions, Bears oh my! game before telling myself I need to bed.

 

I woke up around 330 or so came downstairs & watched Beefalo stomp the 'pies in the afternoon game (had invested interest in this one due to Reaper fantasy football league). Then came the night game. Happy that my team won, but I hated how some players played & how it ended (damn Eli Apple & those onside kicks....wt....?). While the Saints were winning, we ate dinner. Son wanted ham so we had ham.

 

Overall a good day, even better that I got the night off & tonight as well.

My partner and I went to have Thanksgiving dinner with my son and his new (July) wife yesterday.  Apart from it being about a two hour drive each way, it was nice, and I only had to bring back a few leftover dinner rolls.  (Bread pudding?)  It does mean that I need to figure something out to eat today...probably a big vat of lentil soup in the instant pot.

 

I'd like to celebrate Buy Nothing day today, but I think that the project du jour is going to be Christmas cookies, and there are a few supplies I'll need, so a trip to the grocery store will be on the agenda.  

 

In between kitchen sessions, I'd really like to get some paint on some miniatures today.  I haven't finished anything in several weeks, and have scarcely picked up a brush.  At least I've had a game in the meantime.

I got the concept contract for the house, a few minor things I want them to change, basically typos and a few things I want to know more about.

Financial guys, also asked for paperwork and I have called them, they told me life insurance is optional so yes I want it, but no, it won't get in the way of terms of acceptance or something like that.

I'm a bit less stressed...a bit...

 

When all goes as planned, we will get the house march 2nd and then we will probably move in during that month and april 2020.

Exciting times..not so say...killing for my mental health...<_<

I haven't played magic since the late 90s, and I still find random cards in the back of drawers and closets at my parents' house.

I intend to continue celebrating Thanksgiving  today by being thankful for what I have and not going out to fight anybody over some half-priced junk that I honestly don't need anyway. :winkthumbs:

 

I'm glad to hear that everyone had a good day yesterday.::):

It's quiet, cold, and not raining anymore.  Contemplating a run up to the nearest grocer for a couple of their advertised 10oz strip steaks.  That would be a nice change from turkey on Saturday, it's supposed to get into the 50's and I could do it on the grill, even.

Glad everybody had a good Thanksgiving.

Except for me.  Had a Migraine onset sometime early Thursday AM and spent all day in a dark, quiet room with a ball of pain for company. 

Food?  Fugedaboutit.  Some electrolytes and water were all I could keep down.

Had a small glass of juice and a very small breakfast roll a few minutes ago.  If that stays down OK I might get to sample the leftovers later today.

      Congratulations, by opening this forum post, you have received a quest!
      This quest is a challenge created by the combined forces of @Sirithiliel the Queen Tiamacrab, a Wizard Most Wild @Pezler the Polychromatic, and myself – @Cyradis the Questgiver.
      The challenge is this! Paint a small dragon, letting the dice control the colors!
      The Rules:
      Post in the WIP Forums “_Your Pseudonym_ is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!” or “_Your Pseudonym_ has accepted the d20 rainbow dragon quest!” something to that extent.

      Select a figure from one of the following: Stormwing (from Bones III), Kryphrixis (from Bones III), Deathsleet (77110), or Ebonwrath (77102).

      You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors. Take a photo with the figure and a clock as proof of order of operations.  
      Roll for colors! Use a d20 and a photo, or an online dice roller with a screenshot as proof of rolling. Or have a fellow forum dweller vouch for your rolls. Use the Color Chart below to determine what the color is that you rolled. There are three rolls. Below is an online dice roller. Most keyboards have a PRT SCRN button that can take a screenshot for you. Then you can paste the photo into Paint to save. I'm sure there are better methods, but that works for me. 

      https://www.wizards.com/dnd/dice/dice.htm

      The first roll determines what your primary base color is. That must be the dominant color on the figure.

      The second roll determines your secondary color. It should be the second color that catches the eye, and second most prevalent color on the figure.

      The third roll determines your miscellaneous color. This should be most of the accent colors that you use, and third most prevalent color on the figure.

      You might need to order paint or go to the FLGS after rolling if you don’t have a given bottle – we’ll be patient and wait for you. If you can’t get a bottle of one of these colors, here is a spreadsheet with equivalent colors from different brands. If you really can't get them, use the closest thing you got to your rolls (let us know what they are please).

      Pure White
      Super white. Critical threat!
       
      You are allowed to use whatever colors to shade and highlight that you want, as long as the rolled colors are obvious visually.* Example: you can shade a red dragon with purple, brown, or black, but it must always appear as a red dragon. A white dragon shaded with grey must appear as a white dragon, not a grey dragon.   
      You are allowed to use colors outside the ones that you rolled, but they must not take up more visual surface area than any of the others.** Example: your pink, green, and gray dragon is allowed to have bone-beige teeth.  
      The proportions of color on the figure can be however you want, as long as the 1st roll is dominant, 2nd is less, 3rd is less, and anything else smaller. Example: 70% pink, 15% green, 10% gray, and 5% anything else. Or it could be 50% pink, 25% green, 15% grey, and 10% anything else. The tidbit colors are fine wherever, as long as they are minor. 
        Paint your dragon according to the rolls plus your tidbits. Even if it is outrageous. The goal is to make the dragon look as awesome as possible without the benefit of planning color themes. You can add spots, stripes, eye-spots like moths have, or nothing. This is the base challenge. 
        Star 1* You may decide after your initial three rolls to limit your shading colors to your rolled colors mixed with pure black and white. You may still use tidbit colors. Declare this if you go for a Star 1 challenge!
        Star 2** You may decide after your initial three rolls to not use colors outside of your rolled ones and shading colors (so no tidbits like beige teeth, only 3 visual colors shaded however you want). Declare this if you go for a Star 2 challenge!
        Star 3*** You may decide to do both the Star 1 and Star 2 challenges, using absolutely nothing but your three rolled colors, plus black and white for shading. If you do this, you are allowed to use the white for areas like teeth and eyes that could be really weird otherwise (or not - up to you). Effectively, you have 5 colors to work with only, and three of them must be the majority (in decreasing order of prevalence). You gotta be nuts!
        There is no time limit on this. However, if the WIP photos stop showing up at a normal rate and there’s never a Show Off thread, the forum dwellers may gently poke fun at you for adding this to your Shelf of Shame.
        Post to the Show Off forums with a “_Your Pseudonym_ has completed the random rainbow dragon challenge!” sort of title upon completion. Brag about your awesome (or hilarious) dragon. Win all the internet-points. Receive experience and praise. Thus shall end the quest.
        Once the first Random Rainbow Dragon has been completed, we will start up a group Show Off thread to compile all of the dragons in a great flock of rainbowy goodness.

      After seeing my first thread on it (I think it was @Glitterwolf's thread for such an honour) my first thought was pretty much "that looks like a LOT of fun", followed closely by "but I've never painted anything other than a few Space Marines!".  Yeah, well, challenge accepted, because I kind of fell in love with how Ebonwrath looks.
       
      Yup, I'm going into this technically with very little skill in painting, but while I'm waiting for Ebonwrath (and some gnolls and paint, gnolls are the honour guard for the paint, I swear) I'll have both of the learn to paint kits to work through, and assuming everything pans out (aka assuming I filled out my Canada Post FlexDelivery stuff correctly) I'll be picking those up after work today, and then about a week and a half (ish) later Ebonwrath will be in.  Seems like a semi-insane thing to do, dive right into painting a dragon when you originally were getting paints to steadily work on your WH40k Catachans army (and Skaven, sooooo many Skaven o_O ), but I figure why not have fun with life.  Besides, what better to put all the new skills the LTPK's are designed to help you get a baseline grasp on than a gigantic dragon of cuddles DOOOOOOOM that, in my eyes at least, can be bribed with cookies.
       
      Some say I'm insane, I say to be a good delivery driver you need just enough insanity...  Not enough to pass the entrance exams, but enough to be perfectly fine wearing shorts in -5C weather.  :P
       
      Anyways, onto the rolls!
       
       

      I wound up rolling 14, 19, and 3....  So Terran Khaki as the main, Pure Black as the secondary colour, and Lava Orange as a highlight.  Well now, that's an interesting mix in my eyes.  I'm not quite certain as to how this mix will pan out, but on the flipside I chose to dive into this headfirst, so I'm also going to give it a whirl as a full on three star challenge.  I'm actually kind of liking the sound of these colours, as I've had a number of different design possibilities come to mind already!
       

      Obviously, given the current promo and Rictus seeming like a nice and dedicated, honourable skeleton, I had to get a few other items into the cart for free shipping (plus a free skeleton!), and for someone to keep the gnolls in check while Ebonwrath is napping away in it's blister pack.  Can't let the gnolls steal the cookies after all.  Pure Black is included in one of the Learn To Paint Kits, so I didn't add it into the order from Reaper.
       
      Here's hoping I won't have to make too too much room in my gaming area to work on Ebonwrath ^_^;;;;; (since it's still another two months before I can get a dedicated miniatures area set up, but man am I looking forward to such!)
       
       
      EDIT (Jan 7th @ 15:44 MST): Totally forgot to add this in...  For additional information regarding the rainbow dragon challenge, here's the main thread for it!

      Link to original challenge: 
      I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379
      So I'm painting that. 
       
      Die roll, 13, 18, 2.  Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red.   Good colors.  I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate.

      So I decided to do this random dragon challenge thing.
       
      My rolls.

      Main 20 9039 Pure White
      Secondary 6 9227 Brilliant green
      Miscellaneous 10 9023 Imperial Purple
       
      And my intent is to do the 3 star challenge, I was planning this before rolling.  Interesting colors, I have the pure white but not the other two.
       
      The arrival of Deathsleet with his Halloweeny reinforcements, and the missing two paints.

       
      And here he is ready for the paint.

       
      I started with giving him a primer of brilliant green cut with 2-3 times as much pure white.
       

       
       
       
    • By InvisibleThumb
      Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis.
       

       
      must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors...
       

       
      15, ah what could that mean?  I'll look later.  Let's roll another.
       

       
      seven!  Good.  Nicely spaced numbers.  Will look it up in a minute.  For the third roll...  Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different...  Finally!
       

       
      oof!  One!  Critical miss.  Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table.  Let's see what this means:
       
      15: mint green
      7: olive green
      1: fire red 
       
      huh.  Whadaya know.  Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)
