Ah! So there's what ignoring does!




Sorry for making you my guinea pig, GEM. :upside:



Turns out I'd ignored a couple users' signatures a couples years ago and just have no memory whatsoever of the feature...

'S OK.

As long as it is a digital experiment and I don't have to subjected to some nefarious laboratory protocol I'm OK with it.

Because, you sir have a genius twisted mind, which I admire greatly for your spotlighting of alternate perspective.

We just watched Captain Marvel for, I think, the second time.


I really don't understand why some people were so up in arms against it.


It is a decent movie - not top tier Marvel, but better than two out of three of the Thor movies, and better than The Incredible Hulk. Maybe about level with Doctor Strange?


The Auld Grump - nowhere near as good as Wonder Woman - a movie that made me eat crow. Tasty, tasty crow. ::):


*EDIT* Megan has informed me that Captain Marvel is much better than Doctor Strange, just... not as strange.

In honor of our current Apocalypse, I have begun to Mad Max my lawnmower. Well, more like the neighbors seeing the need to constantly be revving the engine of their little buzzing car all hours of the day and night, 8-15 times an hour at the heaviest, has finally provoked me into a response. 

If nothing else, I now at least have a more up to date mental inventory of the contents of the garage and available tools...

Ironically, although this is motivated by pure "Get off my lawn, you ^&*% noisy whippersnappers" grouchiness, the fact that I'm now following through on my childhood plans of having a badelf lawnmower has me feeling younger than I have in a very long time. It's good to have an old school feud again!

"Stay at Home" Zingers:


My body has absorbed so much soap and disinfectant lately that when I pee it cleans the toilet.

Wait, what's a sidebar? Is that a desktop thingamabobber?



But wow, didn't know we had a mute here. That might explain a thing or two...


Anyway, does it completely block posts or just make them really small so you just breeze right by, like I've seen on other forums? Do you still see their posts if someone quotes them? Does it block them from seeing your posts?



The sidebar is those new posts you see on the right side if you're on the main forum page.  It takes the ignored user's post and eliminates it, replacing it with a line the same colour as the grey background that says "You are ignoring posts by XXXXX".  It does not block the content if it is quoted.  Pretty useless, tbh.  (I had to go scour for posts by the blocked parties to find out if this was the case because I couldn't remember)   It does not prevent the blocked users from seeing, or responding, to your own posts.  You just won't see the response unless you choose to, it's quoted, or it appears on the main page sidebar.

So today I:

  • continued my NaPoWriMo streak, churning out a ridiculous poem that's basically one long Bloodsport reference with some #caronaviruslife and pizza thrown in
  • wrote the first 500+ words of what would be a novel, indeed the most "me" novel I imagine I could ever write, if I actually figured out a way to keep writing well enough for long enough to avoid its being yet another abject failure
  • used bullet points for the first time and for no good reason

All in all not a bad day. I guess.

WOLF's Log.



Location : Classified.


Day 3 of being back on the Base.

Already suffering from getting up early, how I miss getting up an hour or two later.


Upside..not painting walls/ceilings/baseboards or putting up fences, or hauling heavy furniture.

Downside..getting up early ( did I mention that before? I did, didn't I? ) not having my girls and dog around.


Only a few of us are here, we're the ones that keep this thing going, oh I know, lots of the others claim to be  "working from home" I'm pretty sure they don't get up this early.

And they have their family and pets around, the lucky #^$^$!

I'll bet none of them are painting any ceilings or walls either..


It's less busy than normal, makes me miss home even more.

I'm waiting for the hardware/software I ordered so I can "work from home" With my luck I'll bet it will arrive when this whole crisis is over.


Somehow I like the quiet, less traffic when commuting, peaceful when I walk Brutus.

Only the daily quest for groceries is dangerous and filled with degenerates who somehow NEED 20 packs of flour to get through the day.

I wonder what would happen if the stores told them they won't get a new delivery twice a day as is the case now.


Maintaining my distance to the other customers, sometimes one of them sees the gap and decides to use it to skip the line.

Seriously getting the urge to eliminate those from the genepool. Sadly there are still rules that forbid me from doing so.

Maybe in a few more months when Civilization has fallen, although it seems that slowly there is some progress.

Less new cases, it seems hopeful.


Just in case Civilization will fall, I have made plans to take over.

I will not take over the whole country, just my area, slowly I have moved my fence an inch.

I will keep doing that every two days, in the end the whole town will be mine!

Everybody inside that fence needs to do my bidding!






No, no...I always cough after that, don't I?

I do, right?

I prepped 5/7 of the Malifaux Crossroads Seven on bases, ready to wash and prime tomorrow. The two female figures got better bases, on some Micro Art Studio ones. Others went on a stamped bit of greenstuff. Also did three miscellaneous Malifaux figures I got on sale. They'll be good goof around figures. 

And... the goblin bomber by Big Child Creatives for the Vancouver paint club figure. Others got ones with good cast. Mine must have been last of the mold because it had pretty awful quality. Mold slip, multiple breaks or cracks, and huge air bubbles in prominent places. Workable but not what I expected. He's at least ready to go now.

      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. 


      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). 

      Reaper #
      Color Name
      Color Description
      Fire Red
      Bright red
      Clotted Red
      Dull red
      Lava Orange
      Volcanic orange
      Orange Brown
      Dull orange

      Bright yellow
      Brilliant green
      Bright green
      Olive Green
      Olive dull green
      True Blue
      Bright blue
      Heather Blue
      Dull light blue
      Imperial Purple
      Deep purple
      Violet Red
      A very misnamed color; somewhere between burgundy and magenta. Not violet.
      Blush Pink
      Very pink
      Earth Brown
      Generic brown
      Terran Khaki
      Light brown
      Mint Green
      Bright pastel green
      Cloudy Grey
      Generic grey
      Marine Teal
      Teal, blueish
      Palomino Gold
      Earthy gold yellow
      Pure Black
      Super black. Critical threat!
      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)
