GETTING TO KNOW YOU.... SEPTEMBER 2020 …GTKY

Recommended Posts

Welcome to Getting to Know You, SEPTEMBER** 2020 Edition, **brought to you by the number 7, and the Roman Empire.

 

 

The latest iteration of the rules follows (LAST EDIT: 1 SEPT 2020):

 

1. Every day a question will be posted (but see rule 7). 

1.5. Should I fail to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy & former Quisitors, will probably step in and post one (but see rule 3.5).

2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer the question of the day before the next question is posted.
2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
3. Questions are going to be posted as early as 1 Minute after Midnite or as late as Noon CDT (Central Daylight Time, U.S. )

3.5 @MusicalFeline  is primary backup this month. MF, please note this is a ^ 12 hour span ^ but if I haven't managed by then jump in.
4. Anyone is encouraged to suggest future questions. Send a PM to the current or any previous Quisitor. 
5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
6. If a question feels like TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
7. Weekend questions will often be formatted as  two or three day quests, or multi-part related questions, posted on Fridays or Saturdays.

Query for Sept 1st:

(A follow-on to the Aug 27 question, that mostly wound up being about spacecraft:) If forced to leave Earth forever…What Planet from Star Trek or Wars, or another SciFy realm, would you choose for your new home-world? (And why?)

I don't think I have ever thought about this before; good question.  I always thought Bespin looked really cool, though I think the lack of trees and wild spaces might get to me.

That homeworld Dylan Hunt keeps going on about in Andromeda sounds promising...

Bajor. Ancient civilization, close to DS9, the wormhole, friendly people (as long as you're not a cardassian).

Will boycott question due to label of Star Trek as Scify(rhymes with sissy) .

There is no Y in fiction.

Planet? I'd be a Citizen of the Culture, freely enjoying the universe. Maybe even serve in Special Circumstances if I got bored after a few millennia. (Iain M Banks)

It's a tossup:

 

Endor - Love the forest & Ewocks are way too cute & I'd love one as a pet (or would I become the pet).

 

Vulcan - It's only logical.

After careful consideration of several other candidates in several sci-fi franchises, I've determined the only safe and logical planet is @Glitterwolf's choice - Risa. 

All of the other planets I considered, such as Lantea in the Pegasus Galaxy (SG: Atlantis) wind up facing deadly life forms and/or epic catastrophes.

Well, definitely not Alderaan........:rock:. Here already feels like Tatootine whenever the heatwaves roll in, Coroscant would be cool, but with it being 1 giant city, I think I'd take my chances on Deep Space Nine.

So a humid rain forest...

Can't choose Dagobah... though I don't mind the isolation, the humidity from a swamp would ruin the priming and painting of my minis. Plus I don't think Amazon delivers that far.

 

Alderaan... crap, wait, nix that one.

 

Asgard... oh, dangit, nix that too.

 

Xandar - diligent on supressing crime, though given that they can't defend against one warship without help, I'll have to scratch that one too.

 

Oh, oh, Barsoom (Mars) but only as it exists in Edgar Rice Burroughs' novels. Advanced civilization, long lifespan, I'd have super strength by comparison, and most important of all, pants are optional. We have winner.

      The rules as they currently stand (in addition to all regular forum rules):
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or some thing) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day (or send a recently asked one!) a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted sometime before 1 AM Reaper time (US Central).
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
       
      The first question shall be posted after a brief pause to prevent the merging of posts.

      Goal
       
      The purpose of this thread is to gather in one place all the visual answers to the oft recurring question, “How big is Reaper miniature __ __ __ __ __ ?”
       
      That question comes up about once a week; but always about different models. This thread is meant to serve as a place for those foolish kind souls who decide to answer in detail with a photograph to post their work. 
       
       
      Guidelines for such photographs
       
      “...Posed in front of an inch or centimeter grid, and / or with a ruler laid out in front of, above, or behind them, and / or next to other Miniatures for comparison...” Comparison pics are the most useful because the numerical height of a model doesn't always tell you how bulky it is, or how exaggerated the features might be. Common objects like paint dropper bottles, figure bases, and specific Miniatures like Sir Forscale (76543) can acquaint the viewer with size of a new Mini, especially while standing on a grid. The best comparison shots are like police line-ups: several miniatures side-by-side in front of an easily-read scale.
       
      @Pingo @redambrosia and @lowlylowlycook contributed most of the wording in the preceding paragraph (which I edited a bit).
