Announcing the arrival of Baby Hamster!

I said goodbye to Lucy this afternoon. It was time. She went peacefully.   She was a good girl.

The lovely piece I commissioned from @kristof65's wife arrived safely!            EDIT: This picture doesn't show it, but some of the glass pieces are iridescent.

*SIGH*

 

I am old enough to remember an old Italian underground comic titled Necron, back before GW laid hold to the title....

 

It was horrible.

 

I'd link to an image, but even the covers had nudity. (Italy having different rules than the US.)

 

The Auld Grump

Grump's drow in his cops game are WEIRD.

I thinks they are shellshocked.

Refugees from a cray cray regime.

 

The dwarves opinion of them is WAY OFF from what I expected. The dwarves are the ones SPONSORING the drow refugees.

 

They used to be friendly nations, until a demon war a generation ago. A Dwarven generation.

 

The dwarf focus turned outward, building surface alliances.

 

The drow turned inwards, isolation and paranoia., and their empress is nuts, sending her armies out on slave raids. The goblin, ogre, and orc refugees fled the drow.

 

The dwarves mobilized and fought back, expanding into drow cave systems, but being clear that they are at war with the queen, not the drow.

And built a home for the drow refugees in the city.

 

Noting can ever be simple. The dead drow crown agent was going to retire from service, after marrying into one of the noble families of the city.

 

He was one of the GOOD GUYS! Now I want to find his tongue so we can give him a happy ending.

*Gasp* Just two weeks until I retire.... *Dies*

 

I expected you to make fun of the living agent-liason's name.... (Agent Herringbone Tweed. Please, call me Harry.)

Never let players that are too clever by half roleplay planning sessions. I'm running Rise of the Runelords for four of my group, when the other two are busy, and tonight they set about planning an attack on the main goblin base. It's a major affair, and their plan, which is so crazy it just might work, cuts out like half of the preparation I already put into it. Now I have to come up with a cunning plan to if not foil, at least disrupt their cunning plan.

I'm painting again. Walls count, right? It is for the game room, after all.

Yes it counts. 
 

Is this your first post in (?) forever and ago ??  Are you getting rid of the rage-inducing-red or painting brand new red because you need to go faster?

:rock:

That's because your weather broke it's leash and wandered down south. You really should come and take it home, y'know.

A look at February 22nd in history:

  • 1980 – During the Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, New York, the United States hockey team defeated the Soviet Union hockey team 4–3. This would be named the Miracle on Ice as the Soviets had won the gold medal five times in the past six Olympics and were heavy favorites.

  • 2006 – At least six men staged Britain's biggest robbery, stealing £53m (about $92.5 million or €78 million) from a Securitas depot in Tonbridge, Kent. While five people were convicted of the crime, as of 2016 £32 million had not been recovered.

Last month I was posting in the 3d printing stuff, but I haven't been able to print anything lately so haven't been posting.

 

I'm not getting rid of the red, at least not yet. I'm painting that section with chalkboard paint. It's very tedious, because you've got to let it sit for 2 hours, minimum, between coats and it needs at least 2 coats to work properly. I've got 4 coats so far, because despite sanding the wall down to being smooth the primer and first two coats picked up too much texture from the roller, so I had to hit it with sandpaper to wear it back down, then do it again before the 4th coat. It's still not as smooth as I'd like it to be, but since I don't have a power sander and am doing it by hand it's just going to have to do.

 

Now I'm supposed to wait at least 22 more hours before trying to actually write on it...

Weren't you the one asking people to send you snow?

Granted I was trying to summon some myself, and it came after a bit of a delay, but that was only intended for my part of the world. And I might have been doing a bit too much research into Ithaqua and Wendigo lore during a time when I had a bit of odd synchronicity going on...and greater Wendigo do tend to travel in snow storms...

But I wasn't the one asking the snow to go to Texas...although this whole thing very well might be the work of the Necromancers of Canada seeking to expand South and running into the Dread Might of the Cheese Lords of Wisconsin with odd side effects...

New spell miniatures not very easy to assemble. Spent quite a few hours, way more than I expected, building them. The Viper's still not finished but the Bladewind Vortex is done and looks pretty nice. I think the Iron Heart of Khaine will be easier and I hope I can get some Witch Elves assembled.

 

Interestingly enough the brown skin painting recipe in the Daughters of Khaine battletome is pretty much the same I wanted to use for my miniatures, which is a nice coincidence.

 

Hoping everyone is well especially in these tough times.
