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

Inquiry, the 22nd of September (Equinox):

Today the daylight hours will equal the night (Equi=equal; Nox=night). How much time per week do you spend on your mini/TTRPG hobby? Is hobbying usually done at night or during the day?

 

I get anywhere from around a half hour to a couple of hours a day of general hobbying for most days. A little more on the weekends if the weather is nasty or I don't have other plans, a little less if it's nice out. Mostly it's done in the evenings, kind of the last thing I'll do before heading off to bed. that's changed a bit since working from home. My hobby area is in the same place as my work desk so when I finish a project I might sneak over to the hobby desk for ten minutes before starting something else. And I've also taken to painting during conference calls where I'm just there to answer technical questions and am not really expected to participate. 

 

Right now the amount of time I spend actually playing TTRPG's is zero. My group is on temporary hiatus while we wait for virus numbers to drop to an acceptable level. We've almost been there a couple of times but they keep spiking so we're still waiting. About half of the group are Luddites so no online gaming either. But when we were meeting up we'd get together anywhere from about 8 to 12 times a year and sessions go from 8 hours to 16 hours depending on how much beer everyone brought.

Now that I'm back to full time, I have a lot less time and energy to paint. I still try to do a bit of hobbying every single day, usually in the morning I work on my space marines while watching Warhammer on Twitch.

When I paint minis, I usually paint during the evening.  I work full time.

 

When I paint, I usually get in 3-4 hours, which is usually 2 hours more than I planned to - and it's suddenly 1 am.  I haven't painted much over the past two weeks (I don't think I've painted since last Monday).  I've been too tired and now I have something that's giving me a mild head cold.

Its so variable I dont really know. Usually nights and weekends. But I will grab a lunch hour here and there. I got roughly 3.5 hours today.

hmm

usually paint during the day -  I do a discord paintclub for a few hours on Saturday, and try and grab at least one or two other days during the week. 

Hours 3 + 1 +1  = so 5 in a good week.

Inquiry, the 21st of September: 

Are you ready for The Equinox? or are you planning to ignore it? (It happens tomorrow for most time-zones.) …and will it be the end of winter or the end of summer for you?

It was the end of summer for me. I largely ignored it (no celebrating; no seasonal prep activity) with maybe one exception.

 

I went and got a Flu Shot.

 

I actually managed to have a decent Monday up to that point. Getting it was something of a hassle. Then afterward, I felt like I was coming down with the Flu. I just had to curl up in my lair and sleep. Felt like I had a fever, ached everywhere…

:zombie:

It put me down for about 9 hours.

1-2 hours. Random as to whether it is at night or otherwise. I should find a way to spend more time hobbying.

That. ^  Same deal for me. ^ 1-2 hours is me being an optimist.

I usually manage 15+ hours a week at the hobby desk. During lockdown it was closer to 30+ hours, but that's what happens when you're only allowed out for one dose of exercise per day!

 

I like to hobby in the morning or afternoon, mostly because of the better light as my desk is situated under a skylight. That doesn't work out all that often though, so it will generally take place whenever I actually have spare time.

Does "insulting hand gesture" count as a language? Because that one I've got down, and not just with people. Discovered a while ago that if I had my hair tied back and proceeded to flip the end in a certain way, any squirrel I was arguing with would get very angry.

I didn't know.

I can't aside from the obvious hand gestures most of us know.

I knew there were multiple ones, but not that there were that many.

I used to know a bit of ASL, but that was a long time ago.

I know most of the standard marshaling hand signals, but they aren't in any way "official", as far as I know.

No. I never learned how to sign. As my hearing faded I became more dependent on reading lips.

I've known about regional dialects, but didn't know there were that many.  As for knowing it, it's something (before Sars-CoV2 came about) that was going to be one of my goals at work - partially because I have two contacts at work that are deaf (one of which who I would deal with on a weekly basis), and partially because I've always wanted to know it. Oh yeah, and the fact work would cover the classes afterwards is probably also motivation....

I used to know a very small bit of ASL, but I've lost it over the years with so many other things not used.

      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).

      Happy New Year and welcome to Getting to Know You, January 2021 Edition!
        
      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 something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day 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 10:30am Eastern US Daylight time.
      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.
       
      Thank you all for playing along as we get to know the real you... tell me, Malcolm Reynolds, are you familiar with the works of Shan Yu?
       
      The first question shall be posted after a brief pause to prevent the merging of posts.
