It's Church conference this weekend, so we're staying home and watching it on TV. My sister and I are going to one of N. America's biggest game stores to go shopping, always a fun time! Behold!: The power of GKA's FLGS boycott--teach them not to stock Reaper minis anymore... Better leave the cards at home and take only cash...

Going back to the April Fool's thing for a minute, I find it to be extremely annoying that news agencies think it's a good idea to publish a fake story on April 1. I've read several such in the past couple days and I don't find it funny in the least. Quite the opposite, actually.:grr:

 

My favorite radio station, Shine FM, became Rain FM for the morning. Only Contemporary Christian songs with something about rain in the title--it was really clever, and there are a surprising number of them. I was going to phone in a request for "He Reigns" by Newsboys.

I ran into several of those in my Facebook feed. But, a day or two later. For whatever reason, they did not crop up  ~~On. The. Day.~~  so I was seeing them in all their seriousness without mitigation of the calendar. 
 

I particularly liked the one that had something to do with everyone who plays AgeOf Siggy being required to rebase to… (I forget what, but it wasn’t round)

I forgot about this:

I was expecting a shipment from my man Nate. 
 

NATE the HONEY THIEF 

 

That’s right, he skulks around Georgia robbing unsuspecting beehives of their honey and then the results are bottled and shipped to me. This arrived Saturday. I am sure the Bees —who crafted the honey— appreciate the awards they've won for Nate.

I enjoy them all. 
 

The ones I have had a go at either building from scratch or collecting pieces for are:  Winter-Snow-Alpine or  

Dusty-Desert-Sandscape. 
 

No promises on pictures.

I was looking forward to printing ABS on my Voron Trident.  Unsurprisingly, I did print a bunch of ABS, including what is now the tallest print I've done (a part for the Nevermore Resin, so we can have the resin printer running more often to thoroughly bury me in backlog I mean provide options to paint!)

Really depends on the mini itself and what it's being used for, although "generic wildlands" sure gets a lot of bases...

My plans were house cleaning, taking my dad out for breakfast for his 78th birthday, and hunting about for early spring wildflowers. All of those happened. And dad surprised me by ordering two bloody marys with breakfast. Which is pretty odd for a guy who's more or less been a teetotaler his whole life. Going to throw some wildflower pics up in the random thread at some point today.

I prefer all of them, even if I don't build or base stuff very often. But for some reason I tend to do more snow bases than anything. Here's a snowy base I made for a white dragon hatchling a while back:

For some reason or other that brought to mind Orson Welles' radio broadcast of War of the Worlds & the panic it caused. People are easily led astray.

I am admittedly a basing & scenery fanatic. I love most all sorts of settings; swamps are my current favorites.

With minis I feel they should be based in a fashion that suits them; e.g., Drow look their best based on cavern looking bases.

You van check out my scenes & bases in my seemingly never-ending Last Hurrah thread:

I pretty much only sculpt cobblestones or flagstones. Otherwise it looks like I do prairie or woodland bases for outdoor settings. Been meaning to do some swamp bases, and a couple Mars bases (I've got some Barsoom-esque minis to eventually get done).

The scene in Men in Black with Will Smith & Tommy Lee Jones summed up the same situation perfectly

I mostly go for a Jungle / Desert or Gothic Undead style environment, depending on the mini.

 

Some examples can be found in my everlasting projects.
