WARNING: This post may contain miniatures and food.

It’s been a few days since my last post – and finally work has slowed down enough for me to do some stealthy typing.

So, now that I have 5/6 Infinity miniatures relatively finished:

I went ahead and got started on the final 6th!! Yipee!

Hello everyone. It’s good to meet you. Despite what you may have heard – I’m not actually naked. I’m wearing a Lycra white body suit.

She is proving a tad more….er…troublesome than the others purely because part way through painting her, I suddenly realised she had a piece of flash stuck to the bridge of her nose. Had to try to get it off without:
1. Giving her a complete nasoectomy
2. Completely destroying the surrounding paint

I’ve actually been finding the Infinity miniatures extremely challenging. Partly because of their size, partly because of their details, and partly because of their colour schemes. Faaar too stressful for my overly anxious, shakes like a guinea-pig in a thunder storm self.

While not working on my Infinity guys, I’ve been trying to speed paint up Madelyn Corbeau for a ‘learn to free hand’ thread happening over on the Wyrd forums in a few days.

So I have her at this point (a lot of touch ups and fixing needed!) and my plan is to do the Cygnar swan on the back of her coat.

But I’m not sure how I’m going to do it, as I’m not too fond of just dumping a big area of gold on her, but I also have no idea how to NMM – like at all. So, we shall see I suppose!!

My only other news, is my father did a family dinner the other night of home-made pizza making and movies.

It’s ok to be jealous of my amazing pizza.

Baking, Gaming and Speculating

Today has been eventful in my tiny world.

  1. Successfully completed all my work with a few days to spare before the dead line – so now I can just sit back making everything pretty before presenting it to my client.
  2. I baked some pizza topping stuffed Anpan
  3. I bought a low end low tech low cost tablet.

First things first. Anpan!
Welcome to one of my de-stressing hobbies, baking! After watching RunnyRunny999‘s YouTube videos I wanted to have a go at Anpan.
He stuffs them with Anko (a sweet bean paste) however, I decided to go with tomato-paste, ham and a combination of Swiss and Parmesan cheese.
Actually turned out pretty well…

I will however be needing to cook them at a lower temp in future, and put more of an egg wash on those bad boys.

Slightly changing the subject to my new tablet (also shown, new awesome comic leggings)…

I downloaded the WordPress app for this device too and I have to admit, like it much better than the version for the phone.

I fully appreciate that more space is going to equal better functions and ease of navigation, but I really like the reader and posts views.
Nicely done WordPress. You got the right people designing those apps in my honest opinion.

This is the same post view on the phone, for reference.

In my next up coming post, I shall be reviewing a dating sim based on the concept of a human girl attending a school with ALL BIRDS.
I do not mean Bird men, or people with wings, or even birds with human arms! I just mean straight up, 15-20cm tall BIRDS.

Moshi Moshi? Oh hi! Haven’t heard from you in a while!
What’s that? You’re dating birds now?
…Sorry I’m driving through a tunnel. *click*
