...
2 - I prefer to paint my own minis and don't feel they are truely mine if someone elses paint job is on them...

Abso-blinking lutely!!

I'll always look with a view to strip. I'm absolutely the same. If it's genuinely well painted I just move on.
I mentioned to someone that I'd bought some new GW minis for next month's NAF Championship (formerly the Blood Bowl GT), as my existing team of the race I wanted to play are non-GW (a mixture of hasslefree, Reaper and Impact! FWIW). He replied "But someone could have loaned you one"...he's right of course, but it would have felt so WRONG.

Grymn progress: 30/76 painted.

Other projects: Warmachine Dwarfs, Loads of Blood Bowl stuff. Malifaux Ressers.

Exactly, what's the point in showing off someone elses mini's. That's the best part about this hobby I think.

The "expertly painted" when the mini in question has two colors mashed about on it, with a horribly blurry photo.

I'm two weeks into three weeks without medication for the rheumatoid arthritis. At the risk of playing the same old song the pain and immobility is getting to me. I've ended up signed off work. Even my jaw has bloody swollen and locked up!! I can hardly force my beer down!   :wink:

 :metoo:

It seems that you obviously need them. Is it some sort of test to see how you get on, swapping to different meds or a problem with side-effects? What ever happens, I hope it sorts itself out... but in the meantime, a straw for beer would help in two ways...

1) you can drink.
2) it makes the alcohol hit home quicker (apparently).

I am not happy today because I was awake very early and just couldn't stay in bed any longer... so I was up at 05:35hrs this morning... and it's a Saturday :( .

The light at the end of the tunnel is just someone with a torch, locking the gate.

That sucks, but why are you off the meds?

A good question. The medication I've  been on for 4 years just started to be less  less efficient. At some point very soon it was likely it would be withheld from me purely on economic grounds (you would not believe what one injection costs the NHS and I was injecting every week. If it's not benefiting me, then the NHS won't continue funding it.*).  My specialist has recommended another treatment (which, to be honest, scares the living carp out of me) that involves being on a drip and getting medicated over the course of a day. Wait two weeks, then repeat. Apparently, it can be pretty unpleasant, but if it works then it can give 6-36 months without symptoms. Before I can start that though, I need to 'wash out' the old meds. Hence this period.



* Before anyone says something along the lines of 'Huh! Typical NHS, all about the money', I'm OK with this. It's incredibly expensive and should go where it will do most good. As it's not been working as well for me, then I think someone else should be getting it. It's been life-changing for me, so I hope my local rheumatology unit can reallocate the funding and improve someone else's quality of life. However lousy I'm feeling right now, however bad the pain is, or the restricted movement, I see people in the waiting room that are way worse than  me. Hopefully what a friend called 'the magic leg needle' will work for them. :smile:

A very noble way to look at things. I hope these new meds work a treat and your at the high end of the time lasting period.

Nothing of real import today, just frustrated that I have to repaint the robes of the tunnel guard I am working on.

It's one thing to record the mixtures of paint to make the whole army the same, it is quite another thing entirely to record the manner in which each mixture is applied so that they all look similar. :tantrum:  Atleast I only have to go back about two layers to fix the issue, and not have to start from the begining again.  Ho hum.

It's just over a week since I had the first of two IV treatments for the arthritis. The treatment takes 12-16 weeks to work nd right now I'm just really hacked off!  Yesterday the pain and restricted movement were so bad I couldn't stand unaided. Today it's better, not good, but a little better. This waiting time is going to really get to me.

I hope things get better for you fast Gangrel.

I'm just annoyed that I lost 2 auctions. 1 for a lamassu, 1 for a bull taurus. I think I'm liking Chaos dwarfs now. So that's why it annoys me.

and they went for $NZ50 each which is quite a steal. Oh well more money I can spend on other things. If anyone has any old Chaos dwarfs they are willing to part with... :D

If I had some, they'd be yours on the cheap.  But I don't.  Does anyone need some old school GW Wood Elves or some previous edition Eldar?  They're all horribly painted but can be stripped.

Funnily enough I was toying with making a wood elf army. But no longer.
Thanks for that link Gangrel. Message sent to the appropriate people. :)

I read that post after I read this one. It looks awesome and I really hope it works properly for you soon. I only hope it has a bit more of an RPG element to it rather than purely hack and slash. I hope that price comes down soon.
Once it's working I hope someone posts a small review thread up here somewhere.
