So, this is what I did with my morning.  I painted a miniature.  I am still trying to really make that pink shirt pop, and I haven’t been able to dot the eyes, because my own awful eyes are making that super tough, but I’m gonna give it a go once the mini is 100% dry (as you can see in photo 2, the base is still a bit wet, among other parts you can’t currently see).  So far I’ve layed down all the base colours, and done some toning in the shadowy areas.  Tonight I hope to get those eyes looking good, and really bring some highlights to that shirt, because I’m in love with the colours I came up with for it.  In picture 3, you can see it standing up with an official Wizards of the Coast D&D Miniature (Dolgaunt Monk).  If you’re interested in this particular mini, want to see it unpainted, or see another painter’s interpretation, you can go check it out here (Reaper Bones - Horace Action).

Also, I’m still learning, and my eyes make some of this stuff really hard, so I apologise for any obvious mistakes I made, feel free to give me tips!

Expanded my Skull & Shackles collection.  Pretty happy that I got another Hammerhead.  And now I have ideas about how to use it.  Now to put a party together.

As a surprise to myself, I sometimes drop D4s all over the fucking place like little polyhedral caltrops designed to inflict 1d4 damage to me whenever I turn the lights out.

Looking for Party

Anybody interested in playing some tabletop roleplaying games on sundays, around 11PM EST?  Probably going to be using Google Hangouts.

We’re currently looking at 4th Edition D&D and Gamma World (Wizards version based on 4E), but we’re open to pretty much anything but White Wolf games.  I’m pretty solid on rules for a few systems, so, as long as the books are easy to find, I think we can make most systems work.

I think we’re starting with some campaign modules, which is why we were looking at Gamma World and 4e, plus the guy who is probably going to run them is most familiar with those.

Send an ask, or if you know me outside of tumblr, send me a message or e-mail or whatevs.

I’d like to share this channel I’ve been following for a while with tumblr.  I think most people enjoy board games at least a little bit.  But there are lots of board games out there that people may not have heard of or have been hesitant to try.  Fear not, tumblr, Rodney and his two wonderful children have your back.  They do “let’s play”s of board games, and to make things even better, they include the viewer by interaction and upvotes on the youtube video and their blog. How cool is that?  In this video, Rodney explains the rules to Wrath of Ashardalon (a D&D board game), and in subsequent videos, he, his children, and the viewers will take you through a whole game.  They’ll make the mistakes a player will make, as we all do, and then correct them in subsequent videos, explaining what they do along the way.

They also did Mansions of Madness (an AMAZING horror themed game), which I would have linked to instead, but it was their first series and they had lots of kinks to work out.  On their channel, there are also videos for Dungeon Run and Small World, which are both great board games, and I’d recommend checking out these videos even if you’re familiar with the games at hand.  Just a whole lot of fun.
