    One of the frustrations the EU members had with the UK was our inability to say what we meant. Angela Merkel pointed it out a while ago – language, when you’re dealing with 27 other nations, has to be clear and unambiguous. She had no time for the British approach of going “no, no we really mean no, no we’re not….. why aren’t you doing what you said? We didn’t mean no, we meant convince us and we’ll say yes….”

    I love the German attitude to social interaction; I have a friend in Berlin who, after a few hours in her company, simply asked everyone to leave her flat. “I need you to go now, so I can have some time to myself” she said, and we all went and found somewhere else to be. I’m still not sure if she was being “german” or downright rude. It was quite alarming the first time it happened. But after I got over the initial shock, I found I really respected her for it. A noticed that a few of my friends from Berlin would speak with a similar forth-rightedness (? is that a word?) that I found shocking at first, but learned to really appreciate.

    I was sent this and was told we in the UK needed to take heed.

    Ok. So I’ve got until 6.30pm UK time to get my diorama working and a video shot, demonstrating how it works. https://www.beastsofwar.com/project/1497669/

    Still very much WIP, but I’m working on making everything modular, so if anyone else wants to add fancy lights, motors, smoke machines etc. to their terrain, and control them all via an app, they soon can….

    Salutations & Greetings All,………. and All Hail the migty Pundancer!!

     

    Pledge: going to attempt to finish the project….. https://www.beastsofwar.com/project/1475350/

    Can anyone actually answer the question I posed as the project header ??

    Jut have to finish the lightsaber and the associated lightsourcing on the min when I glue the arm on….. and maybe the base.

    just saying I F*&%$$#@!!!!  HATE trying to do source lighting, its something I’m crap at be I’ll have another go (attempt 17) to try to get it to work.

    Questions of the week:

    Are you well?

    So far yes, only had 120 confirmed cases in Western Australia, with only 1 confirmed where I live. (Kalgoorlie)

    Are you still working or send home?

    Well, technically I “am” still at work. Actually its week 1 of 7 weeks of leave that I had organized to take last year before of covid 19 strike happened, as I have accrued an excess of annual and long service leave ( something like a combined length of 15 weeks or something) As I would normally work in the operating theatre in the local hospital, it’ll be interesting to find out what’s going to be happening when I get back to work at the beginning of may.

    What miniature game would you like to have a good video game representation of?

    Not sure  on this. I mean that I have the H.I.N.T collection = cyberpunk; Spectre = Division 1 or 2; Dux Britanniarum…  Technically I paint more than I play at the moment, so….

    Good morning everyone.

    Is it still Star Wars if its NOT Star Wars ??

    Yes. And no. It’s your game so you do you but if it doesn’t resemble any known Star Wars things from current or past expanded universe I doubt people will associate it with Star Wars. Just a light sabre might not be enough 😉

    just saying I F*&%$$#@!!!! HATE trying to do source lighting, its something I’m crap at be I’ll have another go (attempt 17) to try to get it to work.

    I hear you and I’m with you 100%. That’s why my Vaders and Lukes don’t have OSL.

    My wife asked if she could help out with the terrain I’ve been working on for my flashing-lights-car-thingy. I gave her some open-lock type wall sections and asked if she could paint them. What I meant was “could you stipple some red and brown and maybe do a bit of drybrushing on these, while I spend a few hours trying to make my app a little less – and I quote – wanky?”

    This is what I came back into the kitchen to

    She’s absolutely smashed it! Even taking the time to find tags from local Brighton artists!

    @sundancer I’m still good, though working from home while also providing childcare to two kids is getting stressful.

     

    Finished my Skaven Gnawholes last night. They took a lot longer than I expected as all the wooden beams are fiddly to build and then fiddly to paint. Full project entry here: https://www.beastsofwar.com/project/1467945/#snav
