    Probe Droids are done! As I mentioned above, I started these guys many moons ago, and my painting methods have changed quite a bit in the past year. I decided to let little flaws go - mold lines, injection gates, gaps, and other model prep issues that I'd fix today were left "as is" and I decided to see what I could do quickly. I'm happiest with the grimy, dirty, oily robot arms, least happiest with the details on the central globe. There's a lot more that I could have done - gem-style lenses, better battle damage, picking out rivets and vents, etc. and a lot of overall cleanup. But ... it's time for brushes down and onto the next.

    My husband's purpleheart and wenge sentinel. It is gorgeous! I particularly like the wavy wenge on the insides. I plan to take pictures of mine during the day when the light is better.

    I was an artist for a while..in my earlier life. Lots of commissions based on antique family pics. A lot of sport stuff. @Barb Bliss will think I was a sell out because of all the U of M stuff. I totally was. I sold a bunch of them. Now, I no longer take commissions and only paint for fun. I have been working on a painting of the Marvel character 'Juggernaut' for a while. It is on my wall unfinished. Someday I will finish it...probably. I will get a pic of it and post here. For now, here is some of my older stuff

    Ooooh, this is gorgeous! I love it. Hi all, first-time Dog Might customer here, currently waiting for my Flame Birch Adventure Case! In the meantime, I’m satisfying my impatience by looking at everyone else’s beauties. I’m starting to think I need a CoCo too...

    I think I will order one soon. Good board games deserve beautiful vessels for their components.

    Thanks. Unfortunately I got sucked in to buying a second one. I need a second one like I need another hole in my head, but I really dug the finish. Dark Rainbow. If you keep a close look on the stock page, you can find some real cool stuff pop up from time to time.

    That was my thought. Here's my screen!

    HAHA. A great place for all of us to show off any hobbies we may have outside of gaming or woodworking! I'm getting deeper and deeper into dog sports (agility primarily) so I can show you guys some of that if anyone's interested (don't get me started, honestly, I have a Problem). I also have an accessory problem, so I decided to start learning how to make my own leashes and collars out of a material called biothane. Biothane is a fake leather material with nylon webbing down the center, it's often used for horse tack. I'll get some photos of what I've done so far when I get home, but it's not anything impressive yet! I imagine @Barb Bliss has lots of planting stuff to share (and should!!!). My boyfriend and I started a real garden this year and grew at least 30 pounds of tomatoes. Also grew some habaneros, jalapenos, rosemary, basil, and some other goodies. Our strawberries were eaten by the wildlife (we ended up putting a fence netting around the tomatoes to keep them safe). I dunno what @WxCougar is doing with all those animals she has, but she should show some photos of them... 👀 Lastly, my boyfriend started blacksmithing a year ago, which is where a couple of our hobbies meet. My first dog-related hobby was/is photography, so here are some shots of his most recent work that I took and edited, trying to be fancy (see next post). This is a technique called mokume-gane. He turned that stack of quarters into that bracelet, which, since they are made of two different metals, produces that really cool wood grainy finger printy look. These photos were also some of my first shot in RAW. And then here's one of my best dog photos after I got the hang of RAW (see next post). That's shot from above with him between my legs (doing his trick 'peekaboo,' we can dance together).

    @Zoe, we only have 2 cats now, so I don't think I'd consider that a lot ; ). We did have 3 sheep but we lost those to predation a few years back. I have a picture of them somewhere but can't seem to find it at the moment. We hope to get a cow or two in the next few years for beef, but have some pasture work to do first. Let's see hobbies - I have a ton of those ;). I do various types of arts and crafts - painting not just miniatures but gourds and the occasional ceramic. I have started doing the paint and sips and those are a ton of fun. Never expected I could do canvas painting but so far, so long as I have an idea of what I am doing, they don't look half bad. I do cross stitch occasionally, but my sister is way better at it than I am. Chainmaille, seed bead and wire jewelry are my main craft at present and we sell at farmer's markets and bazaars. I also have a Taikadai loom (Japanese braiding), and have made a few scarves/belts. Included a picture. I love photography and have included a few pictures that I have taken. One is in an old tree in Blue Basin in the John Day Fossil Beds in Central Oregon, an old building I found in the John Day Valley and the other is a local sunset over a corn field. Music is another love of mine and I play all kinds of instruments (flute/piccolo/alto flute, all the recorders, trumpet, trombone, bassoon and handbells). I am currently leading a handbell choir and am playing piccolo in the local orchestra. My husband and I also are involved in the local Society for Creative Anachronism (SCA), which is actually how we met. He is a heavy fighter and I was involved in the arts and crafts as well as music. Its been a few years since we have had a chance to get back in to that, but hope to soon. My husband and I are also Rock Hounds and have collected lots of various rocks from local hunting trips with our local chapter, as well as purchased many over the years (I have been a lover of rocks since I was little). This is another hobby that has taken a hiatus and we hope to get back to Glass Buttes to do some more obsidian hunting.

    I'd react to this, but I'm out of reactions again! 👎

    I am just a big nerd. I have a lot of things i want to try for hobbies but time/space/money have made me unable to really get started in them. Aside from gaming I the only real hobby i have right now is electronics. I am an Electrical Engineering Technologist according to my college certificate, so I'm always playing with something when i have a few minutes. I am "currently" (haven't had time to touch it in almost two months ) making a steering wheel for racing games. Since i had a few parts laying around I started to make one from scratch rather then using one of the existing projects which is NOT easy due to the poorly documented USB HID protocol especially for a force feedback device. I used to play paintball and airsoft but haven't done either in a couple years. I used to snowboard but have only gotten out a few times since i had kids (oldest is 8 ) I was even setting up to start making snowboards. I have enough fiberglass to make 40 boards and a press frame made from $600 in steel tubing just sitting around in the grandfather in laws garage. I dirtbike when ever i can which is about twice a year as i have no where to store my bike so they are over 3 hours away at my parents. I would say 3d printing is a hobby but really that is mainly used for making game pieces so it is basically part of my gaming hobby.

    I've always enjoyed working with my hands.. unfortunately I don't have the opportunity to do it much since I left college. Past hobbies include: stained glass wheel pottery glassblowing (that one actually IS post college, but I ran through the basic classes and all the advanced classes have always been on days I can't do it So I ended up stopping) Also I did curling for a number of years until I injured a shoulder twice (once while curling, once not) - kind of made it impossible to sweep effectively.

    I used to needlepoint a lot when I was younger. My sweet baby, Kunta Kittie, had the self restraint to lie on my legs while I stitched. Inkie was a disaster, so she would exit stage right when the needlework came out. Kunta knew she'd be given the heave ho if she messed with the fibers, so she calmly laid there, and eventually would nap. The only speed bumps were the metallic fibers. She'd look at the fibers, then she'd look at me, and back at the fibers. You could see the gears turning in her head. I'd say "Don't do it. You know what will happen." About 30% of the time that would stop her. The other 70% of the time, she finally wouldn't be able to stand it anymore, and would lunge at the fibers. A lot of my work lovingly has cat hair tucked underneath the stitches. Every year, I would make a Christmas ornament for every kid in the family. The thought being that by the time they left home, they'd have a set of ornaments to call their own. It was a lot of work for a while, but now, there's only a few 3rd cousins that live a long ways away, and I didn't restart it for that next generation.

    Yeah!! Not to be creepy, but looks like you've got brown textured on there right now - annnnd your AC's initial build got error'd (I think we had a bad run this week), so it may also be a little delayed in the long run. In any case, I can easily change that for ya if you want, or tell Jeremiah to live his dream and pick a lining for you. Black Dragonhide always looks stupendous with Imperial Ruby (as does the black felt), but if you're not into the texture, I totally get that. We may actually have some Black Demonhide lying around, which is basically smooth/fake leather texture. I'll check with Jeremiah. BUT! Here are some example photos for you. First, Red Wine on an Imperial Ruby AC - but please note... this is a damaged AC and was stained a little poorly (it should have been blended more): The only other example I have of the Red Wine lining with something that isn't just a natural wood is it with our Demon's Blood finish: I think it looks fantastic with Imperial Ruby, but it depends on the feel you're going for! If you want something more subdued, I'd go black. If you want something more magical and pronounced, then I'd go with the Red Wine.

    And here is my Ziricote sentinel. I got excited and put my dice in right away. @Zoe here is a picture of the inside. Did I guess right?

    Well the Mahogony is pretty easy to id. You don't have too many dark woods, and Wenge didn't fit with the others.. so just meant a darker piece of black walnut. Actually was less certain of the Birch. It was actually the picture of it lying down that made me say Birch.. seemed a little too 'yellow' for Ash.. but I wasn't sure if that was lighting issues.
