    I'm still working on turning one case into pin storage (I got the wrong size jewelry cushions--and maybe this would be better as a custom build anyway!), but I turned the other one into a place to put my spare watches and bands!  :D

    Let me know if you ever want some custom foam to insert in that space to hold pins, watches, etc. It would be easy to do.

    MKs Polish Chili

    Brown 1lb of ground beef (80/20) and 1lb ground pork. Set aside.

    In a big ass pot:

    Sautee 1 white onion, bunch of garlic cloves, bell pepper (I like Orange ones) in butter. When sufficiently browned add all of the following:

    • 3 cans of Chili Beans
    • 1 can of corn
    • 2 large cans of fire roasted diced  tomatoes
    • 1 can tomato paste
    • 1 can of dark beer

    Then add touches of all the following

    • coffee
    • soy sauce
    • chocolate
    • chili powder
    • hungarian paprika
    • garlic powder
    • onion powder
    • salt and pepper
    • Clancy's Fancy hot sauce (or your fave)
    • liquid smoke
    • Worcestershire sauce
    • Cayenne pepper

    Bring to a boil then simmer for a few hours until it reduces by about 15%. Serve with sour cream and more hot sauce.

    I think that's all the ingredients. Hard to think of them all outside of my kitchen. The soy, coffee, and chocolate are the secrets that really give it amazing richness. Good good stuff that I have been cooking for over a decade.

    Yeah.  911 is gone too.  I'm hoping I can catch up via on demand eventually.  If it doesn't get resolved soon, I may try to move to streaming via youtubetv.

    I am in the same boat. I use Sling to watch live TV. Don't do it too often, mostly for sports. But, with Fox gone, I can't watch my lovable Lions. Hmmmmm…...maybe that's a good thing.


  4. Okay @Zoxe. I just found out that when we decided to make wooden dice, our foreman at the time purchased an airbrush for finishing them. Our normal spray gun worked better, he was supposed to return the smaller one but didn't, yada yada....we still have it and I am taking it home to use for minis. It is a Paasche TG Talon and looks like it has pretty good reviews. I have ordered the compressor from amazon that you linked on your blog and I will be off and running in the airbrush world.

    I plan on watching youtube all weekend, reading your blog again, and checking out other tutorials. Any other thing I should be looking into? 

    Also, ventilation. Any thoughts or resources for that?

    Thanks in advance.

    Have I mentioned I love DMG's brilliantly-dyed products?  Like a lot?  Behold my ever-growing collection! 

    Left to right:

    Fourth (back) row: Sapphire Adventure Case; Experimental Ocean Depths Valhalla Screen; Experimental Seaworn D20 Adventure Case

    Third row: Sapphire Arcane Circle Dragon Tray; Pride Deck Jacket; Experimental Teal Tentacles Deck Jacket; Imperial Ruby on Ash Polys Rolling Tray

    Second row: Sapphire Police Box Dragon Sheath; Imperial Ruby Viking DS; Experimental Dusk Slimline DS; Moss on Ash Celtic DS; Pride DS; Demon Blood on Ash Halberd DS; Experimental Dark Rainbow Chest Token Shield

    First (front) row: Sunburst Greatsword Skirmish Box

    Most of these purchased over the summer via the ever-dangerous "In Stock" page (the sapphire case came from Gencon a few years back, where I first discovered DMG; the Dragon Tray was ordered later (sadly after the KS so I couldn't get the Stargate sculpt!). 

    I really need to run games again so I can put some of this gear to use, although the teal Deck Jacket is working great as a tarot deck holder:

    Looks amazing! Yes, run some games!

    I keep wanting to paint then look at the effort to dig out the supplies and minis and think about how I'm lucky to get more then 20mins uninterrupted and just put it off. I need to figure out a way to make it easier to paint.

    Yeah, I am lucky to have a dedicated space that is always read for painting. A lot of days, I'll just walk in, put on one coat and go back to doing whatever else I was doing. Makes it a lot easier.

    Nice work @Konas.  Amazing what you can get accomplished when you are home sick, uh, dedicate some time to painting.  Yeah.

    p.s. You have a much bigger backyard than I do.

    p.p.s.  I want the blue chair in your yard!

    Yeah, it is pretty big. Its a lot of grass to cut but I do love the space.

    @Konas I finished my Village Attacks Troll! Note: not completly dried.  His only purpose in the game is to cause havoc.  😛  Photo bombs by Jack O. Lantern and Mrs Fisher's sister.

    Really nice skin tone on this. In the words of one of my figure painting profs from art school, it is very "fleshy flesh".

    I have recently returned from a nice family vacation to Boston and New Hampshire, but while I was on vacay, our BGG group purchase of Snowdonia arrived to the guy who spearheaded the whole thing. This is what he received...

    Hope he has a big floor jack in his apartment!  😉

    Dog Might Games is excited to announce our newest game title Labyrinthos!

    Greetings Young Warriors of Athens,

    On this day, you have been given the honor of entering our city's labyrinth as part of an annual sacrifice which is meant to satisfy the monstrous Minotaur that lives inside. Now this may seem like a dark and twisted fate, but there could still be a glimmer of hope for one of your brave souls. According to legend, the great inventor Daedalus hid a set of powerful keys inside his ever-changing walls and that whoever can find them will unlock the secret to escaping … so long as the Minotaur does not find them first.

    Labyrinthos is a fast paced, dungeon tile game, where you and up to 3 friends must explore a dangerous and ever changing maze. To win you must be the first to find all four hidden keys, evade the Minotaur that hunts you, and escape to freedom. But be warned! Every time you find a key it will change you in unexpected ways...

    Look for Labyrinthos coming to KS soon!

    So pumped for this! The cover looks great!

    i have a bunch of ideas for customizations and accessories. lol probably too many.

    sorry if i'm being a bother but i have a couple more questions @Konas, how much pull force do the magnets u use have? i kinda wanna know how crazy i can get with things lol. and is custom placement of additional magnets something you have done/are willing to do?

    examples:

    a) some along the bottom of the screen (for Co-Cos to snap to)

    b) four extra ones around the normal 6 on a panel (for holding a letter sized piece of paper)

    c) ones on the outer edge of the two end panels (i want to attach a carabiner clip to a chain, snap the chain to a magnet, and use it to hold status/condition/spell-effect rings)

    on that last one, now that i think about it do the rods between panels become magnetized enough to hold anything else to them while they are touching the magnets? a carabiner and some plastic rings arent that heavy, i just wouldnt want the clip in the way of what i have on the panels.

    hell, while im going nuts on ideas, you guys need anyone else on your design team? just kidding... unless you need someone, then im not kidding haha

    No bother. Sorry I didn't see this earlier. 

    You can add as many magnets as you would like on the back. There really isn't any limitations. The pull force is roughly 3.3lbs per magnet per the manufacturer. The outer edge is doable but some of them can be organically cut. We could leave them flat if you wanted to add magnets to them.

    No, the rods are not magnetized enough to hold objects.

    Hope that helps!
