Boredom and laziness combine for Father Joseph, the second of the Last Night on Earth board game models.
Boredom because I’m surprised I actually did it instead of playing games all day and laziness because I chose this figure for its lack of complexity and colour range. About 80% of the paint is just flat black, which I do for all models I paint and usually call it the undercoat.
If anyone holds the answer the the mystical secret of making the wash coat matte instead of shinny PLEASE let me know. It has been irritating me for ages, especially when trying to get decent photos.
EDIT: And now after staring at the picture for a bit I noticed a bunch of things I missed. ffffff. I’ll fix them tomorrow. Maybe.
A group of friends got us the Last Night on Earth board game and since I have been sick for far too long I decided to start painting the cheap plastic figures to amuse myself.
The first one I call Billy-bob. He’s meant to be called Jake Cartwright and is apparently a drifter. I particularly enjoyed painting the denim, this is the first time I’ve painted a modern character. Unfortunately the grim dark future doesn’t have the same affinity for jeans we do.
The plastic figures are really cheap as to be expected. You may notice he has no eyes, this is a consistent theme across all of the figures so I decided to run with it. Also eyes are frustrating to paint even when the model does have eye bumps.
There are another 7 characters to go, hoping to do all of them so they match but I’ll probably be too lazy.
I had the most awkward conversation ever yesterday.
Pretty sure I used the word penis far too many times.
This is why you never trust a Fae when they want you to play “This really awesome new co-op game!”
Currently sitting here imagining my mum’s laughter if I called up to ask her permission to play an online game.
Actually she probably wouldn’t realise how stupidly funny it is.
The radio station Triple J asked the PM for a response to their prediction that the world will end on 7th December 2012.
“Great Elephants!” said Gandalf, “you are not at all yourself this morning—- you have never dusted the mantelpiece!”
“An important tool in their work is cladistic analysis, a technique which seeks to sort species (both those which are extinct and those still alive) into an evolutionary tree.”
there’s so many connotations and jokes to be made out of this I don’t even no where to start.
k, so I’m sort of sitting next to my bookcase, which makes this hard, so I went with the book that was like, bottom shelf, in the back, but it was a soc book and the sentence was really long, then I grabbed wild animus which was, “she nodded, accepting his disengagement” and i was like, c’mon, we can do better, so i grabbed shakespeare’s sonnets which are also on the bottom shelf, and it was, “and fortify yourself in your decay”
this dosen’t work for harry potter 6
let me tell you this right now
what would my family and friends say is the driving force of my life?
Once everyone sits down to play, the DM takes another, very important role:making spot judgement on other player’s ideas, plans and tactis
This particular unit type is first recorded as having been fielded against the second Dassinite Uprising in 334.M40, although a number of scholars claim to have traced its origins to the tumultuous wars of the Age of Apostasy.
Fae can’t rap.
Fae is physically incapable of dropping some sweet rhymes to them sick beats.
