While visiting my brother, he rounded up all his old painted minis and let me borrow the box of them to share on the blog.
From Left to Right: Wendigo 627a, ?, Wendigo 627b
Every time I glance at this photo and see the two outer minis, I think Wookies. The model in the middle, I just couldn’t find, as there are a lot of Orc/Goblin/Hobgoblin minis out there. Maybe I’ll find it at a later date. It’s also way to easy to get sidetracked looking through the Lost Minis Wiki Site. I’ll find myself suddenly going “What was I looking for again?!”.
Tangent – Sorta
A few half-baked tangent ideas this week.
One was the topic of gender equality, and I’m not sure where my original question was going. I work in IT, and unfortunately there is a deficit of women in the field. I used to do hiring in my previous role, and the number of female applicants was far exceeded by the number of young male applicants. Even in my computer classes in college, there was not many females at all. In a Discrete Mathematics course I took, the first term was 3 females. The second term, was 2 females. The last term, 1. I can’ recall if she finished the course. Some might immediately believe this is proof that women can’t do math. A recent IT conference I attended, said the number of women going into the IT profession is still very poor. Lack of female mentors, fear of harassment, and more factors than I can probably mention, all feed into this. Raising a daughter who might or might not be interested in following in her Dad’s career path, makes me think about this quite a bit.
Discord/Video channel/Techaluffagus. Again, not sure where this will go, but have thought about ‘What if I joined/started an online drop-in video chat painting community?’. Like real time stuff here, folks. Scary. I don’t know if any of my fellow bloggers would be interested, and being in different countries, I’d probably have to listen to IRO snoring while I paint. Regular text chat wouldn’t work too well, as uh, I need my hands to paint. So, video would probably be better. Though that requires some cameras. There is also the noise/distraction factor. I’m not sure how the livestream youtuber painters do their stuff, but I imagine Discord would probably work. It’s been in the back of my brain at times, so will see if something ever comes to fruition.
1 Wish. So, I will throw out a more direct question before I post this. If you had 1 selfish wish to waste just on yourself. What would that wish be?
