    because I'm responsible for @PUZZLONGBEARD's career change and departure from DMG due to me abandoning my avatar I'm going to let that one slide.....

    As Puzz was walking out the front door of the DMG HQ for the last time, he stopped and slowly turned to face the crew said, "I will eat pumpkin pie every day for a year because of what HE has done."

  2. So, I can finally tell you all about one of the surprises we have been working on. We made an amazing GM Screen for the second season of We're Alive: Frontier on Geek and Sundry. It is a live edge Walnut 4 panel screen. 2 Of the panels rotate and have engraved panels that allow the GM to update info for the game. We are pretty pumped. Being on Geek and Sundry twice in a month is pretty special for us.

    Thanks everyone!  :D  I've really enjoyed poking through this thread to get ideas, and figured that now I have a piece it was my turn to share.  I'll post pics whenever my GM system gets in, too!  (Though that might be a while, there's no rush on it!)

    Just curious, are there any plans to make add-ons like shelves and pencil holders for the GM systems, or are those going to stay Valhalla screen-only?

    Oh, that is an interesting idea that we hadn't thought about. We shall consider.....

    PS. All ideas become the possession of Dog Might LLC. ( read like Ricky Bobby in Talladega Nights...)

    What mini did you paint?

     

    Mine was fun! Went to the renaissance fair Saturday, which was a blast. Re wired a knob and tube connection the previous owners missed. Then mostly ran a new line for some more kitchen plugs! Lost my phone down a wall. Took part of a wall apart. Found a mouse nest from 1994 in the inter floor space. Installed an outside fireplace. 

    Good weekend!

    I am painting a boar mini from Reaper Bones. I finished it yesterday. Will take pics tonight and post, if I don't forget. Also working on a crazy ape from same line. We have a new mini working method. Kick out some Bones minis pretty quickly as a way to warm up for painting more expensive minis and to increase our collection for playing RPGs.

    The mouse nest story made me think of an old tale from years ago. I was asleep and a mouse was making noise in the wall right by the light switch. It wouldn't stop squeaking no matter what I did. In my sleep deprived rage, I got out of bed and hit the wall. Not like a punch, just a light tap. It stopped making noise immediately. Fast forward about a week and my bedroom smelled like death. So much so that I ended up cutting a hole in the drywall about 2 x 1'. Found the mouse. He had been trapped between a wall joist and the switch box and was stuck so badly he couldn't escape and died there. He had squeezed into about a half inch separation. My hope is that my tap on the wall scared him so much that he passed because of it, ending his misery. At least, that is what I tell myself. It took me about a week to cut and patch and paint the drywall, a job that I have always despised. Those of you that have done drywall fixes know what I mean.


  5. I would like to state emphatically that I am 100% against costuming pets in any way. I am all about freedom, and you are all free to outfit your little animals in whatever way you choose. But, as a devoted father to rescue pup that is scared of everything, I cannot in good conscious say that Sawdust looks good in a Hot Dog outfit. I weep for the animals in this contest.

     

     

    PS. This is clearly sarcastic....

    Got my first Dog Might purchase in this week, a gorgeous bubinga and wenge sentinel!  It's absolutely everything I hoped it would be, plus it fits 100% perfectly in the Kingdom Death: Monster box.  Thank you so much Dog Might team, and special thanks to Zoe and Rosie for taking extra care to make sure it turned out exactly how I wanted!  :D

    Got a 3 part sc-fi trilogy out. I had a BLAST writing them.  Also have a fantasy novel.  It was actually the first book I ever wrote. Took three years to finish the rough draft, but I very much enjoyed the process. I'm working on editing its sequel now, though most of my writing takes place over extended breaks like summer and Christmas.  I also wrote a history fiction novel. That one was the hardest to write due to a vast about of research required to make it historically accurate.  Boy, do I know a lot about Roman history now. Which was actually pretty useful when writing my sci-fi series as it dealt with a government that, at times, echoed issues dealing with the the late Roman time period.  

    If you would like to check out my books, here is the link:  my books

    I love the title of 'Jagged Road to Sainthood'. Very cool!

    You guys have some awesome hobbies. I share several of the same ones you do.

    • Painting. Used to paint on canvas in college.  That faded as I focused on teaching. I took up miniature painting a year ago or so. Also recently been doing some wood painting.
    • Graphic Design. This is like painting but on the computer. Not only do I teach Graphic Design, I do a lot of projects, some which have been printed in school newspapers, yearbook, and websites.
    • Photography. Fell in love with this in college, but never got to take a class in it. But somehow I later was teaching kids how to take photos in journalism class I taught. My photos have appeared in my high school newspaper, yearbooks, and various website. Kids and parents will sometimes download pictures I take and put them on their phones, making them their wallpapers. I feel honored whenever they do that. 
    • Writing. I fell in love with this hobby back when I was in 6th grade. So far, I have had articles appear in several college/high school newspapers, online blogging, and five books published (self-published, but still published). I've also edited two books which my father published. He is his 70's and I'm proud of him taking up writing after he retirement.
    • Crochet. I used to do this quite a bit. Back when I in  maybe 10th grade, my first  baby blanket I made even won 1st place in a contest. I used to crochet Christmas ornaments to give to all my students. As I teach high school, that is over a hundred needed. I would start months in advance about the time weather cooled off.

    Books!?!?!? What do you write about?

    Let's see:

    Between 2008 and 2013, I lost 90 lbs and we started doing sprint triathlons.  Our last one was last season and I'm starting to sneak weight back on.  (We had a near miss with one of the neighbor's kids - txting while driving - and I hung the bike on the wall; should be easy to shrug off but it's been 18 months and I still get queasy thinking about that day).

    We own 10 acres and I have a TON of projects I should be making more progress on outside.  I have a grove of black walnut that I'm trying to keep nice for future veneer wood.  I have about 6 acres of ash - and we have the ash bore - that I'd like to clear cut and replant in oak or walnut.

    I inherited my Grandad and Great Grandad's Farmall tractors (an 'M' and an 'H' from 1944/45) that I need to get running again.

    I'm cutting a trail thru the woods for mountain biking.  Now that the brush is starting to die off, I can get back to it.

    I used to drink scotch but can't afford it anymore (damn hipsters!) so I've switched to good ol' american Rye.

     

    I love mountain biking. Where I live we have some of the best trails in the state. Now, Lindsey and I run on them a lot. We will start biking them once she gets a bike.

    Well to give you an idea - their projects BEFORE Coco typically made between $30k and $60k with between 100 and 600 backers.

    Coco exploded to over $320k with 2700+ backers.

     

    Yeah, it was crazy. It ended with over 400k after the Pledge Manager. It will, still, make or break us. We under priced them by about $10 a unit. They are brutal to make, logisitics wise. We will persevere but it is a blessing and a curse. I will NEVER regret that project but I certainly feel the constant strain of it. We are dealing with it well now. Earlier this year, it was very tough. Now, we have settled in.
