All of the highland cattle I have met, including the bulls, have been ridiculously good natured and friendly.


Which is just plain wrong for bulls.


I did get knocked over by one though.


He was leaning on me while I rubbed his back. And grunting.


He fell over too. <_<


No harm done, to either of us, but....


So, yeah, if I ever decided to raise cattle, it would be the woolly beasts of Scotland and Ireland.



It's not the bulls that you should worry about, it's getting between the mothers and their calves. There's a village near where I come from that famously had Heilan' Coos wandering loose in the village for as long as anyone could remember, until a tourist got inbetween mom and baby with fatal results for the tourist :( Now there's cattle grids on every road to limit their roaming. You still see sights like this though.

NO!! Deactivate those powers right now mister! You're annoying the weather gods and they are causing it to snow here.

You can send some of it our way.

Temps in the low to mid 90s all week, supposed to drop back into mid 80s for next week.

Whooo, I get to go for a decently long walk to go pick up my ikea package. I don't mind the walk, they're more or less next to a place I can pick up some food supplies from too, which is great. 


Only thing that's going to suck is carrying three lights and bulbs home, but eh, means my desk will be nice and evenly lit again!   ..Err, the main desk going back up to two, my second desk getting a light (the one I'll be reserving for larger projects, but right now is mainly my dropper bottle storage area) and hubby will get a second light too! 


I could have had FedEx just try delivering again yesterday, but since I knew I wasn't going to be home I didn't see a point in making him come back to the house two more times, so had it redirected to a pickup point.

*walks out carrying a wrench and wearing grease-stained overalls* Sometimes, you try to sabotage a W.O.O.F. experimental weather generator that was going to be used for world domination, and.........things just happen.

Send some of that snow this way. It's ninety degrees out there, and I don't know what demented whack job thought that was a good idea.

*mutter* Gimme RAIN, damnit. Not this bright, shiny, hot crap that is impossible to work in.

Got some flurries here today too.


Spent more of the day cleaning. That was NOT the plan for the day, but I sorta just kinda got started, and well... the next thing you know furniture is being moved, cleaned behind, rearranged, shelves are being cleared off and dusted...  the floor is scrubbed, the stove washed, and... yeah... Everything pretty much got some attention. And oh boy were there some epic dust bunnies in a few forgotten corners. 


Gonna go grab a shower then sit down and watch Rogue One and paint some space ships.

Ug. Cell phone repair place broke the phone worse. Then broke both the fingerprint sensor and the SIM card contacts.

They said they will fix it free of charge but the parts they need won’t be here until Tuesday. Until then I’m stuck using my wife’s old iPhone as the only one my SIM card fits...

Whooo, arms hurt but got my package from the nearest dropoff point...


....Who ships the lights and the bulbs in separate boxes?  I thought Ikea was all about the environmentally friendly thing, not the Amazon way of shipping in as many boxes as possible method...  No extra light this weekend for me, but apparently the bulbs will be in on Tuesday... <_<

Burned the broccoli out of my finger. Was making dinner and went to pull the pan out of the oven. I hadn't noticed I had gotten the pot holder wet and it was all bad. It wasn't quite as bad as pulling the pan out barehanded but close. The skin looks fine it just hurts like heck.

I think that Rogue One might actually be the best Star Wars movie. 


*ducks for cover*


I am one with the Force. The Force is with me! 


40 minutes into New Hope. Watching Kenobi, after having just watched Eps. I-III... Kinda weird. 


@Dilvish the Deliverer Larkin Poe is new to me, but I like it!!


Okay, time to walk the beasts.

      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
      Lemon Yellow
      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. 
      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.

    • 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)
