Obviously shopping for a bunch of pirates who like to drink it straight up. 

 

Or was it white rum? Maybe she was thinking of making hand sanitizer. 

 

 

 

Wish I could say the same. It's been tease, tease, tease all week.   What do I have to do, wash my car?

 

Nope.  Brown Liquor.

Might be making rum cake?

I know someone who did just that when I was in the Navy. We were having a going away party for one of the guys in our shop, and one of the girls had volunteered to make a rum cake. The night before the party she discovered that she didn't have any rum extract. She did have a brand new unopened bottle of rum on hand, so she improvised. She didn't use the whole bottle,  but she told  us that she did use a pretty healthy amount of it.

 

You could smell it halfway down the hall. And it was very popular. ::D:

The original MoO has been renamed Master of Orion 1, and then 2 and 3, and the newest is simply called Master of Orion.

Wouldn't hurt. The storm actually came in this morning, but round two didn't really kick off til a couple hours ago. More of a brooding rumble sort of thunder, with only a few heavy downpours that don't last long. Which is nice, as the steady pattering sort of rain tends to coincide with my leg and ankle throbbing, whereas this hasn't really affected it.

Yes.

 

It's... okay.

 

Not the train wreck that was MoO 3, but... not as good as Galactic Civilizations 1 or 2.

 

I would have loved it if that was what came out instead of MoO 3, or even some time relatively soon after MoO 3, but the genre has progressed quite a bit in the years between releases.

 

There are things that MoO 2 does better than either MoO 4 or either of the Gal Civs. (In particular, I greatly prefer the way Systems are handled in MoO 2 to Gal Civ 2.)

 

But, oh, ye gods and little fishes, Galactic Civilization 2 and 3 blow MoO 4 right out of the water.

 

And Gal Civ 3 is (finally!) multiplayer.  Definitely better than MoO 4.

Seems to me that some of the kidlets need to step up and do some of the cooking and cleanup.

Many hands, etc.

Supervising is honestly more work than doing.  They generally help with the dishes, but there's a sheer volume of dishes and food that sucks up time.  Plus they're supposed to be doing school, which also requires supervision.  I'm looking forward to school ending.

We are playing D&D over video chat, and the town's local adventurer's shop has an intelligent war hammer that wants to be owned by a hero.  I'm playing a paladin of Thor.  I think we know where this is going....

The last three times we have ordered from Domino's, they have messed up our order, and given us a free pizza each time as compensation...

 

Really don't know how I feel about that - on the one hand, they keep messing up our order. On the other... free pizza....

****

Painting piles of rusting chains... and need minis of Kytons to go with them....

 

Priming black, heavy drybrush of Goblin Skin (brownish orange) and another drybrush of Scorched Metal, then a brown ink glaze.

 

Goes with the cage from the WizKids Deep Cuts line.

 

I have plans....

Well, work has been gaining hours on my old retired carcass. Part time job will be fulltime the next two to three weeks. We had some extra help at our bank from one of our branches that had to shutter because no drive up [the bank is in a grocery store]. One lady went to another branch as they were really short and the other was told to leave our location and go to a larger bank because she was just plain a pain and ticked off customers and the bosses. Meanwhile during this we had one woman retire and another retires the end of the month. So I am pretty much gonna be fulltime for the foreseeable future. At least it will make nice hobbying paychecks.

 

Sounds good, moar money for minis, filament and guns, right?

Glad to hear you're doing well!

Rainy here as well. As I watched the bunny roll on to her backside (which is quite funny I must say), I noticed very very dark clouds comin our way from the west. I saw a lightning flash as well. Good thing we've got things to hide under when it's raining outside. 

 

 

 

& there is the thunder.

Yay, vacation! Today through the Monday after next week.   My son is coming home and his girlfriend is also coming here for a week. If this year had been a normal year, the 4 of us would be in Norway for 2 weeks right now.  Instead we get to be cooped up in our house...

 

Going to be great to be off work though.  My co-PO (Project Owner) of my Agile team decided he wanted to do something different, so he left last week to do sw in a different area.  And there are really too many different programs to interface with for just one person to handle. Every day is now more than half the time spent in meetings. My boss left recently too, so I have to interface with 3 different direct managers. At least they are trying to backfill him but there is a lack of people that want to be PO. This is complicated by the fact that my team is also understaffed for the mountain of work ahead and there is a hiring freeze. 

So my stress level has spiked, I even had stomach pain from the stress last week. Increment planning is coming up soon after I get back, so I have to get going on that right away.

 

So it will be nice to have more than a week off. Thanks for listening to me vent a little.

Are sprinklers an alternate means of summoning rain?

 

I ask because this morning I happened to wake up early (around 5am) and heard it start raining. Our sprinklers are set to begin at 4am. So, I grumbled my way out to shut them off, and literally 2 minutes later, the rain stopped. :mellow:

 

Maybe it works because we never wash our cars? (until very recently they lived outside so didn't see the point lol)

 

Huzzah!

      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)
