Here's today's Quizzle 20 August 2020: Pick a book that you haven't read in 10 years, but would like to again.

It hasn't been quite 10 years yet, but I'd like to reread A Dance with Dragons.....but I won't be doing that until the next book actually has a release date.

 

I've been going through and unpacking my novels (and deciding which to keep since I don't really have room for them all) and I'm seeing a lot I'd really like to reread.....

Quizzle for 21 August 2020: What one TV show do you really miss and wish could return?

Of course, Firefly.

Some Canadians will sympathize, but the Discovery channel's "Daily Planet" (daily science show) and Space (scifi) channel's "Innerspace" (geek culture daily show) were cancelled two years ago by parent company Bell Media. Those channels are now bland, mere shadows of their past glories.

We used to watch Daily Planet nearly ever day, and I still really miss it.

Quizzles for 22 & 23 August!

22: What one mini do you still want to acquire?

 

23: Are you a collector, player or painter primarily?

One??  I couldn't even narrow it down to one per manufacturer.....

 

I collect far more than I paint.  I'd like to play more, and I'm working on it, but collecting seems to be #1.

Quizzle for 24 August 2020: What is thee biggest ship you have ever been on?

As my Dad get's seasick really easy (he got seasick on the Pearl Harbor tour), nothing bigger than the PEI ferries growing up.
Since then, the biggest would be one of the Newfoundland ferries.

I'd say Bright Turquoise but it has already technically been DC'd because it was originally an HD paint. I think otherwise it'd be Burgundy Wine.

Bright Turquoise was one of the HD paints that was rereleased in the Bones line. Its new SKU is 09471.

Hmmmm if I had to say just one......Probably Tamiya White primer. While not a true paint per se, this is probably the best white primer out there for me. I can spray this stuff onto colored plastic & it still stays white!

Well, a bunch of the HD paints I really liked have been discontinued already. So I'll say Vallejo Red Leather. It's a really great brown that stands out well against any other brown on my paint rack. It's great for things like straps and stitching that you want visible against other darker background colors.

In my (very limited) experience, even if one paint gets discontinued or whatnot, chances are another company (or heck, even the same one) have a very similar color.

But probably Fireball Orange. I really like that one.

Nothing really comes to mind.  While there are some paints that I certainly like, I believe there are close enough approximations in the other dozen+ paint lines out there that I could replace them if needed.

22nd The resin Ma'al Drakar. Never gonna happen though, even at the recent reduced price it was too expensive for me :down: Even without my current financial woes, I couldn't have justified it.

 

23rd I'd say that I'm probably a painter. A very, very slow one though.

Probably one of these, the ferries that connect the Outer Hebrides.

Hmm, Griffon Tan is already gone......so probably Pure Black. I use it as a base coat for most of my dragons and it's such a wonderful, matt, inky black that I honestly couldn't do without it.

 

Edit. All the Liners and Clears too

We went on a Royal Caribbean 7 island cruise for our honeymoon. That thing was massive.
