Got all the boxes I need to create the six squads for Fireteam now (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1916). I'd SAY that's the last of the miniature purchases for a while, but we all know that's a filthy lie. 😅
You know how docker containers get a random name assigned when you don't specify one yourself? Names are randomly generated and look like "inspiring_pike" or "competent_darwin".
Turns out there's a special check in the code that prevents it from ever generating the name "boring_wozniak" 😄
I've been doing a bit of experimentation with my miniature painting! First was finding a good colour scheme for my Tyranids and also using the "Muddy Ground" texture paint and little grass tufts I bought back in October (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1855).
The second has been "zenithal highlighting" where you base coat in black and then do a second prime with a lighter colour just from above, where the light would be hitting it. Very pleased with both!
Finally managed to sneak some varnish in this evening and got the blood effects done and proper photos taken! https://www.flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/tags/thecrimsoncourt
We also made ice cream this morning!
"My first impressions of web3" by Moxie Marlinspike https://moxie.org/2022/01/07/web3-first-impressions.html
Really hits the nail on the head IMO. A good follow-up to Laurie Voss's recent piece: https://seldo.com/posts/crypto-the-good-the-bad-and-the-ugly
I really have no sense of time lately (and by "lately" I mean just "any time in the past several years"). It was five years ago today we visited the train museum at Thirlmere! https://www.flickr.com/photos/virtualwolf/albums/72157663128483562
I finished the leader of The Crimson Court back in September (https://virtualwolf.org/media/posts/1839) but hadn't been feeling in the painting mood apart from that. I finally got around to finishing the rest of the warband now! (Though as is becoming a theme lately, I need to wait for it to be not hot or humid in order to get the varnish done so I can then put the blood effects on top of that).
