Don't most villain's speeches about denial of human rights start off 'for the good of the people...'?

 

Not really a field day but I will say a number of states have requested similar measures, they just took out the quasi-military enforcement.  As for family groups, how are the police supposed to know a family group short of shaking down everyone for ID?

 

I'm willing to put up with many requests but I start getting queasy when police Re being given permission to break up formative cell size gatherings in public.  Maybe it's just me but given there is no end of this (until the government is ready? Really?) It makes me very uncomfortable.

 

Especially since the only way to get more of everything is to gather in groups to make the stuff to have the increased supplies.  

 

Good luck and try to stay healthy.  I am hoping the requests around me to restrict group gatherings remains just that: requests!

 

To be fair to our police they are loudly complaining that this is pretty much impossible to enforce.

 

And to be fair to the politicians I think they are now in the position of being in more trouble if they do too little than if they do too much.

 

Went to a large ironmongers this morning that sells a wide range of garden goods and a fair selection of food. Managed to buy my spring seeds and some bedding plants before they announced that they were being asked to shut their doors.

One other thing: All our radio announcers seem to have been told to be upbeat. Every announcer is so relentlessly cheerful that it makes me fume.

So, has anyone ever put any kind of riser in their Ikea Detolf cabinets to divide the vertical space on the shelves?

 

 

Not exactly, but when I needed a new piece of glass for a glass topped table, I found out that most glass shops that do windows and such will happily cut you a piece or pieces of glass provided with a cardboard template. They even rounded the edges for me. For your cabinet, I would get some shelves cut then use some pretty glasses or candle holders as risers and you have fancy new shelves.

Took some time to put together some miniatures. Will either post some up now or tomorrow depending if the photos I can take are terrible or not. These Perry plastics are a joy to work with.

I haven't heard much complaining here, but yeah, impossible to enforce when pretty much everything is open and doing whatever business they can -- at arm's length or wrapped in plastic-- and the police have more serious problems.  They have announced that they will NOT be stopping people and asking for ID or where you're going, just be responsible.  Of course I'm not blind to where these changes lead, we've been on this road a while now.

What are you going to be planting?   My garden is a muddy mess right now but I'm planning to get lettuces, radish, onions, beets and chard in this week.  If the community garden has herbs, I need some of those, too. Tomorrow is supposed to be dry, and maybe a bit sunny, good weather for being outdoors.

Sent that Mac 'n' Tang meme around last month and everyone found it disturbing. And for real, just imagine sitting down at the table, piling macaroni and tendies onto your plate after your mom's made your dad say the blessing and your big bro has refused to come down from his room for dinner, you've got your glass of milk and ketchup--something smells a little funny, but huh, I dunno, man those tendies smell good--so you dip one in ketchup and then bite off that first delicious bite, wash it down, that 4/5-clearing swallow you do when you're digging in and eating too fast, and then scoop some macaroni up with your fork and pop it in your mouth, it's hot, and, oh man, life is good as you take that first long, slow, lingering bite. But then. Wait. It settles in and for a moment it's so sharp you can't unclench your teeth and your mom's like, oh, did I get the packets mixed up, well,

And dad's just sitting there, fork down, and finally he lights a cigarette and stares at the wall while you and mom argue, eating his macaroni one slow, emotionless bite at a time. He speaks but no one's listening.

RTB Pro Tips! Shading with complementary colors! #77214 with Anne started around 11 AM.  She is painting Kar Drakir, a dragon man.  She is at home, but Justin is at work, so he must be feeling better.

 

https://www.twitch.tv/reaperminiatures/

 

ETA: During the show, Justin said Ed is swamped at work and won't be streaming Terrain Tuesday at 3 PM today.  At the very end, Justin said he might stream something at that time, but it would just be something for fun like marble races.  I guess tune in to find out if it's happening and what it is.

So... Mom has had to let at least one of her caregivers go. The woman came in on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but her other job is working at HR Block. In the office. Which she is still doing. Meeting with a half dozen people a day.

 

So mom told her she couldn't take the risk, and told me she'd be fine alone... I'm spending every night at Mom's and drove home to work from home 3 blocks away, she'd be fine.

Ha.

She didn't even make it to my first break before having an anxiety attack, so I had to use may break to run to her house and setup there.

With the noise from the bathroom construction in the background.

 

Ah well, at least the construction workers are keeping their distance from mom...

Trying to talk my dad, who's already feeling unwell, into rescheduling his Thursday meeting with our tax guy since it's totally unnecessary for him to drive two hours into the center of our state's outbreak for this right now, but trying to reason with boomers is, as ever, like beating one's head against a (germ-covered) brick wall.

I'm at the top of a hill, so even though we have had a month of continual rain the last couple of days of nice sunshine means that everything is drying out well and everything is in bud.

 

The downside is that I am very near the coast and the (frequent) storm bring a lot of salt onto the land, so I have to plant salt resistant varieties. most brasicas do well, so lots of cabbage, broccoli and the like is going in. Herbs in the sheltered spots. Then doing tomatoes, cucumber and so on in our conservatory. Wish I could get onions to grow decently.

I'm serious but putting this in Purple because of the fictional reference.

It's their Sirius Cybernetics Brain Implants overriding their natural emotions.

For those wishing to take their hoarding digital, Playstation Network's got their March sale going on til the 31st. The discount on the Resident Evil 2 remaster was quite good, so it looks like I'm going to be returning to Raccoon City for awhile.

      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).

      20
      9039
      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)
