Alright wargamey peoples. skirmish peoples, blood bowl peoples, painters of miniatures, builders of weird cool stuff. Show me your blogs. I'm putting together a list on a github so I can make it my homepage. We're doing this like an old school web ring! Boosts appreciated

Painted something just for fun and the glory of my hoooouuuussse

Since I know I won't get time to get many done I'm keeping the paint job really simple and just calling out the main stuff. Tried really hard to keep the red in the colours to help them look more cohesive and board gamey when playing.

@Artemis201 literally my profile pic, I'm a bit of a Gowron fan

Half of the clear plastic ghosts box painted up. Knowing how quick and easy they are, I'll smash through the other half of the box when I only have a couple of hours to spare.

@DrunkOnTea would love to see these in the dark lit up with like a pointer light or something.

Done some drawing tonight, I think I might actually be getting better. 3D modelling gas definitely helped me a lot just sort of figuring out shape. Not entirely but a wee bit. These are for a project I'm cooking up, of which they will be just a small part.

@Artemis201 they will be minis eventually, well that's the plan there's a lot of planning and thought between here and there.

@Artemis201 hey, how dare y... Oh you mean the Boglins. Yes, yes they are. Almost as if they'll need someone to keep them right.

@Artemis201 I knew - sorry I was just taking fake offence for yuks.

I think it's time for a miniatures clear out. My hobbying has changed so much just in the last year and I have very limited space for storage. Not sure there's much secondary market for 3D printed stuff but I would be loathe to just destroy anything

Some bits for Rogue Element painted. An operative, some soldiers, and some objectives.

2 small painted miniature generators
5 painted miniature soldiers with red armour and large rifles

Making some good progress with Rogue Element. Play testing again later today will have fully printed boards, painted one up to test out some colour, think I'm going to go over the pink with a more orange colour

If anyone watches Ninjon on YouTube, which I'd recommend, he recently did a video on some palette cube thing to decide his colours. I got my image from Pinterest but tried the same thing with the Elf Duelist I designed. Some interesting take aways but I think I need to try it a few more times. It's interesting not having a specific flesh tone. This was based mustard yellow, highlighted up through ivory, and slightly shaded with dark red. She may have jaundice.

a colour palette of 6 colours similar to those used in the miniature.

Finished my snake despite being run down. Think I got a wee bug at Carronade, my own foolishness for not masking up. Got too caught up in being there.

The bottom part of the jaw never quite printed right but I was happy enough to just paint it and not worry too much.

Got around to uploading my snake to Cults, would appreciate a boost for this one if you know anyone that plays or just generally likes snakes.

Painted the spined jerboa. It's ok but my painting game is way off lately. Probably just rushing everything.

I see a lot of line highlighting in my near future

Finished Ditto yesterday too but had to finish the base, although I realised after putting it together there's some print issues. I'm ok with it. I really like the retro robit meets star wars droid look.

I kind of dislike the whole Instagram thing but I'm trying to grow a page for my 3D modelling. Because I don't like to hustle and don't enjoy being on the app that's going... Slowly.

I had the thought of doing a commission for someone who has some followers, maybe them painting it for their page would help it grow. So if anyone knows anyone (or is someone) on Instagram that needs a custom mini, I'm offering, if they're willing to paint it. If not maybe give this a wee boost?

I don't often do videos but a little turntable of my hacker for Rogue Element

Okay fuck this for a game of soldiers.

Have been bed-ridden* since Tuesday afternoon incapacitated by fucking flu, and last night at 00:30 I woke up to an arrhythmia. Beta blockers worked a treat the way they usually do and I've now had enough of being ill.

Got mildly dressed, went downstairs, and am now tapping into that sweet sweet endorphins release.

  • Why is it bed-ridden? Was I covered in beds? sort your shit out

@pidgeon_pete@mas.to avatar

@erikcats you can't casually ask an etymology question and not get an actual answer, time to rizz 'em with my 'tism! Ridden is from rider, so you're riding your bed. Riddled would be if you were covered in beds, and comes from hriddel which I had to look up, it's a kind of sieve, so to be covered in holes I guess.

A THREAD ON THREADS!

I’m receiving lots of questions about our position on federation with Threads and realised I haven’t posted on this subject for a while.

We have lots of users who do want to federate with Threads, and lots of users who don’t. It’s my job to find a good solution that works for everyone.

Our position has always been to start from a defensive stance due to our technical and moderation concerns.

So what sort of solution do we think might keep (almost) everyone happy?

1/3

@pidgeon_pete@mas.to avatar

@trumpet I will absolutely leave in this case and I think many others might too, I know I can personally block them but it's a principal thing, they are an organisation with a horrendous record on many issues and any other server would be defederated if they did the same.

@pidgeon_pete@mas.to avatar

@trumpet that content is front and center if you just look and is deliberately unmoderated. That's why it's a line I won't cross. But if that's what your users want.

@pidgeon_pete@mas.to avatar

@trumpet the content is there, if you don't want to go on and see it then please read this article https://glaad.org/smsi/report-meta-fails-to-moderate-extreme-anti-trans-hate-across-facebook-instagram-and-threads/ or any of dozens more like it with their own examples.

Has anyone tried that Newsh stuff from Pro Acryl. If we're going to do this Blanchitsu I might finally give this a go.
