*Mumble, mumble* Good game tonight. *Mumble, mumble* That just ended. *Mumble, mumble* At One O-Freakin'Clock in the morning!

 

But that is directly tied to it being a good game.

 

So, *Mumble*

 

We cleared out the tower and the courtyard.

 

But low on HP, pretty much all spells have been used, and I am out of Smites until I sleep. No fifteen minute adventuring day here!

 

So, *Mumble*

 

The Auld Grump - my icon in Astral really does not much match my character.

The Auld Grump - bed, soon. Megan typing.... If I go to bed now, I will be awakened by cold toes in the small of my back or resting on my belly.

 

*EDIT* If I am awake, at least I can rub them warm, in self defense.

It took me a second to realize that was a mask. Well done to that gentleman!

 

I trimmed my beard this morning. I took too much off. I wanted to shorten the chin area while bringing the cheeks and neck down to a relatively close cut. I succeeded, but the chin is about half as long as I would like it to be. One of the perils of the trimmer guard not having real measurements for its lengths, but rather just esoteric numbers that I have to guess what the length will be.

 

Now I'm off to work for the first time in 3 weeks. I will be there for 3 hours to do things that should only take me an hour to do. Those thing are clean the lots and, I kid you not, ride each garage elevator from top to bottom a few times to keep things from potentially seizing due to disuse. I will repeat this tomorrow morning as well.

You have the dream job! of eight year-old me. Ride the elevator up and down and down and up and down again!!

 

3 hours?  With any luck the wind will have blown in additional trash sufficient to fill all three hours. Optimism or ...something.

And now I'm angry. There was a dead deer on the interstate that was torn into two halves by a semi. Just as I swerved to miss the first half I saw the second without time to swerve back completely. I ran it over, and in in the process it busted my front bumper up a bit and unseated the driver's side fog light.

 

I am not amused.

So it appears it mandatory now we have to wear masks at work. It makes sense thou. I was planning on using my mask I got for my resin printing but we get daily "rationing" of masks. They are those blue cloth ones with the nose wire in them. They give my wife headaches (or make her existing ones worst). I'm just glad I don't wear glasses as every person there that wears them complains they fog them up. I did place a order for some biker skull face masks earlier in the week. Hopefully they'll get here soon (had a delay due to C-19 ordering but the order is coming from Montana. Oddly the first thing ever I've ordered from that state. :rock:).

 

On the bright side, I did get my vacation request for next month approved! So including birthday, I'll have 4 days in a row, then work about a week & then get 4 days after that. I approve!

@TheAuldGrump Hah, it took me until reading @Unruly's comment about it being a mask that I realised what it was. Funny stuff.

 

Been doing some 40k stuff, did first sculpting in a while. Reasonably pleased with it, it's hair of a decapitated head so doesn't need to be extremely neat. Wanted to sculpt the neck today but stuff got in the way.

 

Tried to make boba today after a pretty bad first attempt. Turned out reasonably well, need to boil it for a while. Will try to cook more and make a syrup come tomorrow to drink while I study. Also, watched To All the Boys: P.S I still love you today with some friends digitally. Not a bad movie but certain actions taken by the protagonist were well... neither the most moral nor the wisest ones. It was nice to have some friends to watch it with and take the heck out of it.

I'm feeling pretty ambivalent on mask usage. Just for myself, general-public wise. Y'all out there in the thick of it I totally get and all.

 

Still, I'm at the point wherein enough transforms itself into being enough on a number of fronts, tbh. People are getting awful insistent about what they think they can force others to do, and I find it troubling. I'm over the being constantly scared, I guess. I don't want to die, but I don't want to die of not wanting to die, either.

 

Anyway. My wife's supposedly sending me some sort of mask. I might try it out next time I have to go in the store. Kinda get the feeling I'll just be irritated by it and wind up breathing funny and giving myself pneumonia lulz, or just constantly adjusting and touching it and thereby spreading germs to my face more than I would have otherwise, I'unno.

 

Good morning to everyone except the jackboots.

Virtual game this afternoon.  We had a lot of much needed fun last week.  Same two players that didn't connect last week haven't checked in yet this week.  Should be getting excuses in an hour or so.  It's obvious their enthusiasm and priorities have shifted, I don't know why they can't let go and just say they don't want to do this any more.

Tell your friends who wear glasses they can buy an anti-fog compound online from any of the motorcycling goodies sites.

Might also be available from the online ski/snowmobile shops.

GEM

In the interim, tell them to wear their glasses slightly farther down their nose so there is more room for air to circulate.

Well this is more broccoli on the pile, and I'm not talking about vegetables.

I've never attended but always enjoyed the reports of Burning Man.

Just announced that it is cancelled. ::(:

      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)
