    These are great tips, thank you. I think the small, consistent, morning workout idea is a great one

    I know Hearthstone has had an expansion since then, and I feel like WoW has at least had a major update. But you're right, it really hasn't been hard.

    I kissed Blizzard goodbye after this incident and havent had a single regret. Their response to this was just the straw that broke the camels back for me

    This weekend I am gonna try my hand at making an ecorche model. I am hoping that doing so will help me learn some useful anatomy for art.

    I have a pretty solid home gym setup but have been finding it difficult to work up the motivation to work out. Part of that is just depression stuff that I'm working through, but part of it is feeling less than confident in any workout programs I try. Anyone have any good suggestions?

    Agreed. I was extremely impressed with how they worked the story into the rogue-like mechanics. It was a very long time before I heard a repeated voice line.

    Thanks! Adam Savage is 100% what inspired me to do this.

    Protip: if you end up wanting to try it, I highly suggest trying to find a plastic distributor near you. The small ~8"×10" sheets are like 4 bucks at hobby stores, but I just paid $25 for a 4'×8' sheet.

    I may paint it. Idk, it was only ever meant to test my build skills, bot my paint skills. But I have thought about painting it a few times. If I do, I will be sure to post an update!

    Great question!

    I really only kit-bashed with a single kit of a Panzer model tank. Pretty sure it was a Tamiya Panzer IV. I basically went to a model shop and compared various tanks by their price:piece count ratio. This one was very economical.

    I feel like I should have done more kit bashing, though. I was worried about adding too much detail but I think I ended up adding too little. 95% of the model is sheets of styrene that I cut up and glued together.

    Oh, and I only thought to use model tanks because Adam Savage talks about how they used model tanks while making ships for star wars.

    Edit: Now that I think of it there may be one or two bits from some random battleship model I had

    I had been wanting to try my hand at scratch-building and kit-bashing, so I had my friend draw me a ship and then I set out to build it. I am pretty happy with how it turned out! Especially for my first time.

    I'd love to hear any questions or suggestions
