      Astarties Ex Nihilo

      At the tail end of the AH unboxing stream from 11/1/17, Ryan opened a painted miniature, two D6, and a note. The package was sent be me. Below I've detailed a bit how I painted said mini. I am not much of an artist. Any miniature painting skill is from 15 or so years of experience at painting miniatures of all kinds.


      First off, the miniature in question is the "Elf Male Sorcerer" from the "Pathfinder Deep Cuts" line made by WizKids, which was picked before Ryan changed his character class. But since he is an Arcane Trickster and not a classic rogue, this miniature should still work well. The paint is almost all Army Painter brand paint. All of this can be found at any game store worth their salt (or, you know, from the Little Shop of Magic in Las Vegas, NV, we ship world-wide). Here is a picture of the paint I used. Except the Blue Tone is actually Purple Tone. I grabbed the wrong bottle for the picture.


      So, to start off, all of the Pathfinder Deep Cuts and D&D Nolzur's Marvelous Unpainted Miniatures come pre-primed in grey with Vallejo primer, which is not my preferred color to prime miniatures with, but the detail on these minis is already not super pronounced (at least not to the level of most pewter/hard plastic minis on the market currently), so I didn't want to add another layer to it, which would take away some of the finer details.


      The first paint applied was Leather Brown on the main coat and Chaotic Red on the leather straps hanging underneath the coat. The results of this can be seen here.


      Next I painted the cloak. I started with a layer of Angel Green and highlighted with Greenskin, blending the two together while they were still wet. The best picture of that I have is here.


      I then painted the skin by putting down a layer of Skeleton Bone and dry-brushing with Elven Flesh.


      Next was the staff, which was painted Oak Brown and dry-brushed with Dirt Spatter, and the legs/boots which have Uniform Grey on the pants/leggings and Matt Black on the boots.


      I then picked out the details on the body by trimming the coat with Oak Brown, painting the straps and belt with Matt Black, and painting the buttons with Greedy Gold. The hilt of the dagger and the flasks are painted with Plate Mail Metal. The hair is Matt Black. Then the magical blast was painted with Purple Tone Ink The results of all that can be found here.


      Now, from here forward, I for some reason didn't remember to photograph anything. So I don't have pictures of the final product.


      The next step was to go over the skin with the Flesh Wash from Secret Weapon, which then necessitated another dry-brushing of Elven Flesh.


      For the base, I wanted it to look like the figure was in a jungle environment since that was where Jackalheart was located. The base was flocked with an initial layer of Dirt Flock from Gale Force 9. I then flocked part of it with Spring Undergrowth, also from Gale Force 9, and then added a Swamp Tuft from Army Painter. Since basically everything is wet all the time in the jungle, I added a generous amount of Realistic Water from Secret Weapon to everything on the base. I don't have a picture of the finished base on the miniature, but I have a picture of a test I did before flocking the actual base.


      Next will probably be Mogar.

      Been playing this game for the last couple days and I'm loving it. I'm not spectacular at it (K/D .67 and rising, usually finish in the low/mid 20s, got in top 10 once). But I really want to try duo/squad. I work weird hours so my normal group that I would play with are largely unavailable when I can play. So I thought, why not look at the RT community for squad mates?


      I am Lord_Peaches on steam (technically my brother's account) and I play as Astarties in the game. Add me on steam and let's squad-up!

      My brother and I recently binge-watched Girls Und Panzer and he had an idea. Turns out he wasn't the first one to have this idea, but none of the other Girls Und Fury videos we saw had continuity throughout the video. They constantly changed which character from GUP was representative of which character from Fury. He also made it a point to find shots from GUP that best matched the shots from the Fury trailer. Enjoy.

      When Skyrim came out, I moved to it and left the world of Oblivion entirely and never played it again since Skyrim was such a significant improvement over Oblivion. That being said, it makes me somewhat worried about Fallout 4 because it looks so good. It makes me worried because while I did like the world of Oblivion, it was still just another high fantasy world that I was replacing with a slightly different high fantasy world, so switching to Skyrim and never looking back was no big deal. The thing is though, I absolutely love the world and setting of New Vegas (they so nailed the feel of the Mojave and what Vegas would be like after the nukes) and the setting for this new one will be so very different but will be a better game in every technical aspect.

      Also, Mr. New Vegas is a superior DJ compared to Three Dog, I mean, he's Wayne fucking Newton, MR. Las Vegas himself. Plus, he plays Big Iron on the radio and I love me some Marty Robbins gunfighter ballads.

      Hey guys, we started a show on our YouTube channel (Everything is Bad) a few weeks ago called Topical Cream. In it, we discuss nerd related things. Movies, comics, video games, internet culture, etc. Our latest episode was about Star Wars celebration. We had a small issue with the focusing on one camera, but otherwise it came out pretty well I think. We're working on acquiring some legit microphones for future recordings, but they're pricy. Check out the latest episode below:

      Astarties Ex Nihilo

      So my friends and I have been talking about starting a YouTube channel and we finally started it. It's called Everything is Bad. We only have one video up so far, but we're working on others. We plan on having regular podcasts and let's play videos as we feel like it. The sound quality on our first video is a little rough, but easily understandable (bear with us, we're working on upgrading our equipment, but getting 5 quality mics is going to be expensive). We also have acquired more cameras since we last filmed so future videos will be more than a single wide shot for the whole video. I think we're pretty damn funny. My brother was laughing the whole time editing the video and I laughed through the whole thing while double checking the final video.

      The first video is our main podcast. In the future we will be producing two podcasts, the rambling random discussion that is our main one and a topical one where we discuss a specific topic for the video.

      Channel link
      Video Link

      Let me know what you guys think. Any suggestion for the production itself would be appreciated. My brother is extremely knowledgeable with Premier and After Effects and can pull off pretty much anything we would want to do editing-wise, so our only real limitation is based on equipment.

    • Question about MC updates

      Astarties Ex Nihilo

      So, this is a thing in the new snapshot. I want them so bad. Since our server was created in a now outdated update of MC, I'm assuming we won't be able to craft them? Also, skeleton, zombie, and creeper heads will be obtainable from the respective mobs when they die from a charged creeper expansion, but again I'm assuming this won't be the case for our server?

      Hey. I literally just had my Eagle COH yesterday (although I had my board of review last June) and decided to see if there were any groups dedicated to it.

      Cool! sort of sucks though it isn't there anymore. Mine was a coat and t-shirt drive. I had about 150 coats and over 500 t-shirts during a month span in March of 04. I gave all of them to a local city mission in Lincoln, NE and another homeless shelter. But the planning of it was really tough!
