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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
