  1. Yesterday
  2. Miniature Painting

    Banker's Holiday here in the US today. I couldn't sleep, so I was at the bench at 6:45 this morning with my favorite mug full of coffee and a brush in hand. At long last, the KDM Watcher is completed! He's been on the table quite awhile; had trouble mustering sufficient willpower to finish him out. I'll be taking a break from the KDM series until kickstarter wave 2 is in hand (sometime in March or April). I've been doing KDM since early November and am looking forward to something a little different. The Watcher is one of my favorite sculpts in the set, but turned into one of my least favorite to assemble and paint. The dangley lanterns underneath were a challenge (and bobbed around when airbrushed), and all the smooth surfaces really didn't lend itself to my dry brushing technique, but I kept going. I consider myself pretty new to the hobby - there's a lot of techniques thrown into this last model that I learned while tackling KDM: Airbrushing, of course. Filling (Milliput and Vallejo Matt Varnish). Pinning. This morning I tried 2-brush weathering on his cloak to give the dark recesses more definition.
  3. Some of you may be on Isaac's newsletter, but just in case here is a relink for the Gloomhaven fans. Gloomhaven Celebration #1 was just announced!!! (see full text below). We'd already have signed up but already have a binding commitment that weekend. https://www.eventbrite.com/e/gloomhaven-1-celebration-tickets-43260820278

    Lol I love any dog that may go into a barbaric horse rage. WHAT DID THE HORSES TAKE FROM YOU FRISKO?!
  5. Well it probably IS easier for DMG to make a mug, rather than a horn.
  6. You don't want to get into this discussion with her. You're lucky she doesn't roam the forums or kickstarters like I do to engage in such conversations. DMG made a comment in one of their previous kickstarters about a wooden mead mug and since then my wife has been hovering over their facebook to see if such a thing comes to fruition. She hassled Cameron about it at GrandCon . Still, she'll like this cutting board I think.
  7. No such thing exists. Everyone knows you drink mead out of a HORN!
  8. ps-she's STILL waiting on the wooden mead mug
  9. This pumpkin has (finally) gotten a cutting board...mainly for my wife... Still haven't found something to buy for myself yet on their instock items. sigh

    I still think DMG needs to make a 'chest' like that for KD:M! I know I'd be suck(er)ed into buying it.
  11. Our Game Rooms

    About two years ago, I've begun to renew my games with Carcassonne, and with KickStarter, a lot of game have arrived with more to come. I will need some gameshelves for it. Since one year, I've received those games.

    Ah yes the ears. They are curly and fluffy, and have an inbuilt stealth-function as it is nearly impossible to take a good picture of them.

    Oh my gosh, I love his ears, @Laurent! A few of my friends have some early grey-ers, too.

    Name: Frisko Race: Flatcoated Retriever Class: Guardian of the Garden Best Known Skill: Imitating a statue whilst trying to hypnotise an unsuspecting doggy treat Favourite Magic Spell: Summon Puddly of drool around one's self. Famous for: Disguising himself as a Labrador before outing himself as a Flatcoated Retriever Most Ashamed of: the fact that his beard is turning grey at the age of 3 Untill this moment it is uncertain where Frisko's exact allegiance lies. Known to bark at everyone and everything that passes by in order to scare them off(unless you are a horse... Frisko doens't cope well with dogs that are 2 meters high), he switches tactics as soon as someone or something enters the garden and starts to befriend them immediately (unless, once again, you are a horse... probably... we try to avoid this from happening).
  15. Fun! I went and looked at the Kickstarter page. The use of bananas for scale was quite silly, but effective. Thanks for the info. I’m sure there are lots of examples of collaboration projects haunting the depths of the shop.
  16. It's our third playthrough, and it's the first time we fought a lvl 2 quarry (we wiped last time after the wife saw fit to draw the Plague settlement event... if you haven't encountered it, pray you never will). The lesson we learned early on: armour is important.

    Wasn't sure if that was 2 or 3. Yeah - I'm just getting ready to start a level one Antelope fight after barely surviving the level 1 Butcher. Two severe injuries, but no deaths.. and I did get the Legendary Lungs secret fighting art from him. I think I'm ok on weapons at the moment.. but definitely seem to be behind on armor. I have 1 skull helm, and a tank in a full rawhide set (including a whip to try and take priority target most of the time)
  18. A level 2. Quite a different fight then a level 1 (somehow more as you would expect such a critter to fight), and you drown in resources at the end.

    What level antelope are you fighting there?
  20. Now if only... if only... I could have a nice DMG Ale Tankard(TM) filled to the brim with some good Belgian beer to prove the point I'm making with the cutting board.
  21. Pictures of DMG products at home.

    Yeah - I almost did that one last week. It did feel somewhat appropriate

    That's what I thought on seeing it.. really nice contrasts in it.
  23. I knew the Tyrion quote wouldn't last!
  24. Pictures of DMG products at home.

    Well they had plenty up this time. And now it's with custom quotes - which is even better
