Re: Hey Vogonians, what are your other hobbies?

LOL I'm still buying minis. I sent an offer for Celtic nobles and Pictish axe-mensch. The seller bit! These are 28mm sized. Lord bless their bountiful little hearts. It took 30 years to make the jump from 25 to 28.mm. Whatever committee made that decision didn't consist of 55 year olds. They should …

When I start painting the space Marines that pearly stuff.will come in pretty handy. I'm not sure if Itried mixing with silver. Something tells me it wasn't as insane. The gold mixed with other colors didn't have as dramatic an effect either. I lucked out and at this point have all or most of the …

And 1 color in their standard fluid acrylivs line that is astoundingly useful is iredescent pearl. In reality it's a pale silver. You can mix it with any number of colors to achieve wild metallic effects. I originally bought about 10 mixed color bottles, and really didn't want pearl. It sounded …

Yes that's true. But, amd I don't know if it's the economy in general or aspects of it are changing, but both Michael's and Slob Lobby used to have 40% coupons like almost constantly. Omce in a while a 50 percenter. Up until a year or so ago I think. You don't see that anymore. Still 30% is still …

I left out other interests of mine. I'm enamored with the idea of building a metal working lathe from scratch, or mostly so. I have an old bed from a Unimat 3, bought some aluminum blocks, and figured with care I could file the inverse v and flat notch into the bottom using files. Why not, it's how …

For highlights? Used strait, or mixed ever? I tend to turn up my nose at "fake" colors. Oftentimes you can achieve the desired results with careful application of lighter colors, yellows and white say. I realize though that some really wild effects could only be achieved with flourescents or …

TT always seemed like a great compromise between the fiddliness and compromises of rail and bogie size on N gage and the space requirements of HO/OO, but there was not much around for it a couple or three decades back, thus I merely admired it from afar as it were. There wasn't really stuff below Z …

I took another look and my kit only came w/fluorescent yellow and iinm pink, or perhaps actually light red. Very disappointingly no bluenor green. Golden doesn't seem to offer 1 or the other even. I took a jaunt to Michael's, and it's been a while, but they literally carry everything in the store. …

Re: Hey Vogonians, what are your other hobbies?

To those of you who do paint minis and whatnot, do you ever find yourself utilizing fluorescent colors, even if it's just to mix them with strait colors? In a batch deal I received a few bottles of fluorescents. Wondering if they're worth holding onto, as they could perhaps add some zing to an …

I don't limit myself to 1 scale (mind you I neber built a layout, so loosely speaking I'm a collector). But if I did it would be TT scale. I recently bought am On3 steam engine (O scaled, but runs on 36" narrow gauge track). I'm not happy with my purchase as the boiler seems oversize. The devil is …

Anyone can get offended at a joke for any number of reasons. When it's done in a comedy show, it's not (more then likely) directed at someone in particular. Not "in someone's face" so to speak. Sometimes unfortunate circumstances can be cast in a humorous light. Live with it. Ratfink said he was …

I've been watching it for the first time in a very very long time. There are still laughs. People can't grade a show like that by today's standards. It was an absolute howl when it was new, or when you viewed it for the first time, even as reruns, in the 90s. It was barnstorming hum0r in it's day. …

Well Community took more chances then any show in history I'll bet (network tv anyway). It's way newer then Seinfeld. Community poked fun at blacks, women, jews, elderly, gays, you name it. There's thr banned show where Ken Jeong wears black face (depicting a Drow? or black skinned elf). A lot of …

Are you calling us juvenile? :) Some guys spend hours painting 1 figure. With amazing detail. I used to build plastic models and dinosaurs as a youngin. Never got around to painting them much, as I was too busy lighting fireworks inside them after they were built. I loved the way the plastic made …

Whereas they may sometimes seem like a premium paint for miniatures, they measure up miserably against even low end student quality acrylics. I'm not sure I understand what you mean by this.. Peole who use vallejo mini paints admit freely that their yellows and reds habe pee poor coverage. So right …

It doesn't mean shows that have a laugh track aren't funny. Many years ago Friends was something I swore I wouldn't watch. The first time I saw it only affirmed my suspicion that it was stupid. I really hated everything about it, the premise, the cast. The 2 people who really don't annoy the h*** …
