Disappointing, I was hoping this whole 'Pick whatever freebie Christmas mini you want' thing would mean I could just buy the Christmas minis I want (the Christmas Ghosts).

 

Anyone know if that's going to be an option later in the month? I really don't know where to go to get info on what Reaper's doing these days.

 

I'm wondering that as well.  I've also been looking for the Christmas Eve & Knight crew, are they going to be available this year??

I can see now today is going to be one of those "interesting days". When I first woke up I thought it was 1999, then once I got that sorted out, thought it was 5pm on Friday, instead of 5am on Saturday. 

Sorry about that. I was rebuilding the DeLorean, and Flux Capacitor broke loose and rolled into the open door of the Tardis.  There were some side effects.

Alright, WHO STOLE MY AVATAR?!?!??

 

Also, it snowed here a little. Like 13 inches little.

It's still coming down.

For another 12 hours or so if the forecast is to be believed. I hated to, but I called out today.

Hoping  that the plows have time to get out and do some snow removal before I need to drive to work tomorrow.

Well, that was a "fun"weekend.  We moved the youngest back in with us (yes it would have been easier (and cheaper) if he'd just moved with us 3 weeks ago, but you know, kids....) from the next province over.  It also gave me the opportunity to get my other car over here.

Was supposed to be a "quick" 3 hour drive over, get truck, load truck, pick up car trailer, wife and son drive their cars back, I go 40 minutes out of the way, load car, drive 4 hours or so, back home by 9 or 10 pm.

Unfortunately, the weather decided their would be "strait effects" snow in all of northern NS.  So 20 minutes late getting to rental place.  Then 50 minutes getting truck (because of course you only staff one person on a Saturday at the end of the month, cause no one rents trucks to move at the end of months.....). Then 2+ hours loading the kid's stuff in heavy snow.  Then arrive at 2nd location to pick up car trailer. And find out it closed at noon, not that anyone thought to tell us.  One very long call to the company later and we find out the only place open with a car trailer is a half hour in the wrong direction....sigh.

So I send the boy and my wife on their way, and head in the wrong direction.  This is over Mt. Thom, which isn't much of a mountain if you are familiar with the Rockies, but is still a pretty good size for around here.  And the roads are completely snow covered and not at all fun.  And as there is no law that says rental companies must put winter tires on their vehicles, none of them do. So one sketchy drive later I finally get over there. Was more like 50 minutes due to conditions.  Get a car trailer.  It is now getting dark and I have to drive back over Mt. Thom.  Roads are not better.  Luckily my rallycross reflexes still seem to work, so I recovered from losing the back end of a 20 foot box moving truck with an empty  car trailer hanging off the back while climbing the hill. It only got rotated may 45 degrees......not sketchy at all. :blink:

It was about then I decided I wasn't heading back to NB that night.  That was re-enforced with my wife called, from the hotel she'd stopped at near the border.  After a slow drive in heavy snow, and stopping to help with an accident, and having the kid almost ditch his car, they surrendered for the evening.

So once I got out of the snow area, I grabbed some supper and made sure the folks wouldn't mind me stopping by (they live pretty close to my friend who had my car). Then finally got to my friend's place at 7 pm (instead of 3:30 as per the original plan).  Got the car loaded with little issue, which was a bit surprising since it is rather low and we were worried about scraping. 

Got to the folks' place (which has absolutely no snow) and "slept" there (I have sleep apnea but was expecting to be home, so didn't bring my CPAP).  Sunday morning was mostly sunny and dry, and the drive home was all clear.  Closest I had to an issue was wishing I'd brought my sunglasses.

Got everything unloaded and the truck dropped off (but not checked in....the poor girl at the drop off place was practically in tears trying to get their software to work last night, we finally said my wife would go back this morning and they could finish then) and I got to sit down by 6 pm. Which gave me just enough time to doze through the F1 race and then go to bed early.

 

Needless to say, no painting got done.

Well, that happened.

 

Watching a tutorial on painting blonde hair, and the hair looked familiar, but I didn't know why.

 

So I asked Mum who said Farrah Fawcett, and then added that she would "totally have gone gay for her, at that age".

 

Thanks Mum, I was running low of Awkward, nice of you to give me some. <_<

 

::D:

 

I love Mum. :lol:

Nope.  I was trying to get the DeLorean fixed so I could stop that, when the Doctor showed up to stop me.  Something about a fixed point in time.   I may still try to fire up this old T-800 to try again though. :devil:

Mine has survived. 

 

Speaking of Avatars: what was the recommended or required size or maximum size for them? and did it change? (I see a new button on the phone and mobiles version of the forums so I’m wondering what else has changed.)

How long do you think the withdrawal symptoms will last?

 

I was pretty amazed how much this site is a part of my online life.

 

I wasn't happy when I couldn't post.

At first I thought it only affected a few of us, I could see all posts, but I couldn't reply and felt frustrated.

This site is indeed a big part of my online life.

 

Now bring back the avatars for those who miss them and we're all set to go.

I'm waiting now, the girls are all getting their hair cut and then I can go cook and we'll have dinner.

Sauerkraut!

WOW! 21 pages while I was gone and so much going on. New jobs, Thanksgiving, Pezler blowing up the forum...

Special congrats to @Glitterwolf, your new home will be beautiful! Wehad a great cruise, my Nephew's family, Sister in Law and my Niece in Law's mom, it was a very nice time. A couple stops in Mexico, beautiful weather, Thanksgiving was weird, normally our house is full, but this year would have just been us, so it was good to be with family. My Wife's Dad passed away last year and his birthday was then, so it would have been very sad for her. Got to spoil the Great-kids, and we were in Alabama while the Iron Bowl was on. I found out the Alabama definition of Atheist is that you don't care if Auburn or Alabama wins! Anyway, good to be home and glad the forum is back up.

Good to hear you enjoyed your cruise!

 

We're dealing with finances and applying for the mortgage and all that legal stuff.

Hope it will all be accepted in time and that we can sell this house soon.

If all goes well, then somewhere in march/april we will live in our new home.

 

AND! Dedicated Hobby Room!!!

 

 

AAAARRRROOOOOO!!!!!!!

      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. 
       
      Baby needs a bath first.

      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.

      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)
