Speaking of painting I have run into a problem with Ben's UCM tanks and stuff from Dropzone Commander. He wanted them to look like Roman Legion tanks (part of his headcannon is this is an alternate reality where the Roman Empire never fell...an awesome idea!) and of course I was all for that. He said he wanted them to look battered and war torn while maintaining their bright reds and gold. After I 'finished' one (still have some aging and dirtying up to do) of one of his tanks and part of his dropship he told me it was darker than he expected. The problem is I am both too much of a noob and lacking the supplies to make them brighter, the only thing I know to do is to strip the paint and start over, which I offered to do. He said I didn't need to do them and that he still liked them, but I can tell he is disappointed, which of course means I am afraid to do anymore work on them. Maybe I shouldn't have offered to paint his units until I was more experienced.
|Hello green friend!|
Last, but not least, of my weekly rambling, I found a bug. I am not entirely sure what it is, it looks like some form of Katydid, but as to exactly which type I am torn. It could be a Common Conehead or possibly a Forked Tailed Bush Katydid, or maybe something else entirely! I am way out of practice with insect identification, especially in this region, I am more familiar with the east coast. If you have a random bug you want IDed, InsectIdentification.org is a really good starting point. Whatever this creature with pretty eyes and vibrant green-ness is, I was happy to see it when I was checking the mail
