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

Inquiry, the 24th of September: 

Gaming mats / Table covers / Game boards: Do you own any? What are they made of? Are they representing desert, open water, cobblestone, swamp..? Where did you source them, if you did not make them?

My apartment is never the choice for in person games, so I do not bother with table cover. I have some random buildings I bring along to other people's houses or conventions. I also have a chessex wet erase 1 inch grid I keep in my back pack to bring to rpgs. I draw on it.

I have a few whiteboards, one of which I had painstakingly carved 1"x1" grids on it for D&D. I am not certain if that was a wise call.

 

Aren't you supposed to be a wizard? Or are you the kind that is less Gandalf and more Tim the Enchanter?

That is correct. I measured it out and used a knife to cut into the board and also my finger. Did a pretty good job of both.

 

I find a little blood generally helps a lot of my projects along. Case in point I was trying to tune my chainsaw yesterday. Wouldn't start no matter what I did. Somehow scratched a knuckle while yanking on it. After a bit of blood fell on it everything started to work even though I hadn't adjusted anything in the meantime.

A little bit somewhere...  If I get back into gaming it will require some searching.

Oh, crud...

2 boxes of Battletech maps [actually I own ALL of them]

about 10 pounds worth of Heroclix maps

multiple cloth sheets of generic tans, browns and greens for other games

lots of felt pieces to use on the sheets

lots of buildings for Battletech and now Starfinder

a lonely Chessex mat

To my dismay, I do not have anything other than a hideously red tablecloth covering my painting table. I also have that little paper game mat that came with the cheapest 40K starter. I just can't put money towards a giant mouse pad. I look at the price and think of how many little soldiers and monsters I could buy instead. I am planning on building some modular boards on 2x2' MDF pieces, as this is the size the hardware store sells, and is also perfect for wargaming. I heard crushed velvet makes a beautiful ocean, so I'll probably buy some of that, too.

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?

I usually celebrate it, but this year I've been too distracted. End of summer, thankfully.

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?

3-4 hours, if I'm lucky. Usually at night.

Inquiry, the 23rd of September: 

Did you know there are 300 different sign languages? Today is International Sign Language Day (so sayeth the UN). Can you sign? If so in which one/ones?

I didn't. I know a tiny bit of ASL.

Chessex double sided mat from my FLGS.

I have one of the pathfinder grid maps. One side is a grey stone type texture. The other is a sandy brown texture. I ordered online. I also have various structures and ruins drawn out on grid poster board that make an appearance from time to time.

Inquiry, the 25th of September: 

Do you enjoy making changes to models? or doing model conversions?

Depends on how intensive the changes are.  Easy things (weapon swaps, arm or leg reposition) I'm fine with.  Anything that requires me to have to re-sculpt a major portion of the figure isn't that enjoyable for me personally.  In the process of scratch building a figure and it's driving me nuts.

I do, when I envision a model to be a little different I will convert it.

Most of the metal miniatures are left as the sculptor made them, but the plastic miniatures, particularly the multipart ones, are viewed as parts for kit bashing. Things like my Pumpkinheads & Goblin Faeries are the result.

      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.
