Where's my water mellon one?

It's only Custom ordered stuff, not in stock. We thought in stock would skew the numbers.

That's fair.

I figured you'd be more of a bruise guy (dark blood).

Because of the accident?  😂

Too soon?

I agree. Galaxy is such a pretty color that I think both of us are still looking for a piece to use that stain on? ; ).

I hope that @EdInSeattle doesn't take that the wrong way...just remembered he is one of the newer Underdogs. I only meant it in jest.

Pretty sure he'll laugh, and then curse you for making  him laugh.

You are correct. Have a great weekend! Hopefully some L5R RPG this weekend. Our Pathfinder game got cancelled. Have fun gaming everyone.

Ha ha ha <ow>  😛

Although that was a pretty stain--not sure I would have bought it, but I liked it!

You are correct!  The Galaxy Sentinel that's up right now was tempting purely for the stain alone (the cyberpunk engraving certainly doesn't hurt--yowza), but I'm holding out for something I'll actually use, heh.

Yeah that stain turned out gorgeous. If I were to get another sentinel it would have a different interior.

Don't let @Konas hear you say that or he'll keep making sentinels with that stain and the same interior.  He likes to torture @Thomas Browne and myself with caramel BoRo and that honeycomb interior.

Well, I'd want a honeycomb interior : ). So one of us will be happy.

Some cool stuff going up today. Should be a pretty big drop. Lots of Player Pads and some more triple Mini Holders. I really hope the Ziricote base doesn't go because I really want it.

I was tempted to go for a triple stack but went with a single instead!

One of the Katalox.  THIS ONE, if I saved the right picture.

Nice.  I strongly considered getting mine in that wood, but there was this beautiful glowing redwood that seduced me.

I like the base engraving of yours better.  Sweet birdies instead of a celtic circle.  I'm guessing you'd rather have a base without sweet birdies on it.

I have nothing against birds. They are tasty when paired with green beans and mashed potatoes.

Seriously tho: I didn't notice the design, I was totally distracted by the wood grain. :)

@Konas if a Cherry 3 pack were to appear, I'd probably be interested.  Our hobby room is on the 1st floor, with 2 large windows. While I can store out of direct light, I'm always worried about light fade on some of the nicer woods.

I did get a redheart one, and am crossing my fingers (figuratively as I can't do it anymore physically) I don't get paint on it that I can wipe off with a damp cloth.

You should be fine.  Acrylics come off of gloss surfaces pretty easily with water and a paper towel if you catch it before it's fully cured.

I don't know what rubbing alcohol would do to DMG finishes, but it eats acrylic paint - even cured acrylic - pretty quickly.

I start and finish almost every mini with the airbrush, so I've generally NOT used a fancy holder - 20oz plastic bottle lids are my favorite (Gatorade, Vitamin Water) - but I have some pieces in work that I'd gladly swap to a more stable base, even if I have to swap back for the final airbrush shading.  I know I don't want to be airbrushing with a fancy holder!
