Over the last few weeks, I've been pretty busy with life and all those responsible type things, which has kept me from doing much drawing. I bought myself a used pickup for one thing, so at least now I have a vehicle again. In any case, I've had a lot of stuff to do.
Last night, about 11:30pm, my family dogs got in a huge fight. The Black Lab female attacked our female Pit Bull. We stopped it once, and she went after her again. In the process of stopping the second fight, my right hand was bitten by the lab, pretty badly. Its mostly my ring finger, and my middle finger was torn up a bit too. Part of what I find strange was that at no time was the pit aggressive at all. The big bad scary ferocious evil reputation dog tried to get away... She was placed with us as a rescue from a dog fighting bust. She's been an amazing dog, and I feel bad that I didn't want her because she was a pit. She defended me from the Lab, who was VERY aggressive. I guess I can be wrong too...
So, I'm not able to do much, since I'm right handed. I was really hoping to contribute to the hoard this month, and I've got those Beastmen to finish also. Plus, a city map for my new Burning Wheel campaign. This couldn't have happened at a better time.
So, I'm going to put up my parts file for the Beastmen, and I guess I'll have to miss out on the Hoard. I hate to drop the ball. My apologies.

Son of a Buck.
Unless you have a fire hose or one of those attack dog training suits, you just have to let them have it out. Labs can be VERY territorial. Pits are needy. Unless trained to be vicious, they can be extremely wonderful dogs. If a Pit feels too neglected or if it gets a taste of blood, they can change, though.
Good luck with that. Do they have your hand pretty well immobilized?
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
Yeah, I knew better than to try, but I did it anyway. I seem to be infected with the dumb-ass sometimes. Funny thing is, I was trying to save the lab. I figured Dixie ( the pit) would kill her if she got going.
Years ago, I raised German Sheppards. 2 of my pups were S&R dogs when they bombed the Federal Building here. Apparently, this particular pit was a contender when that piece of @%$# doing the dog fights had her, and she pretty much saved my butt. I've got a friend who is a Deputy Sheriff here, so he sent her to me. I seem to have a rep as a dog guy.
They got those plastic things on my fingers and I'm all wrapped up. Good thing I can type with one hand. No stitches either, they leave dog bites open in case of infection I was told. I've been bitten before, but not this bad. Oh well, it will heal.
Ups, this is terrible, revgunn. I am sorry for your fingers. Maybe you and your dogs were very lucky at the same time. Dog fighting between those breeds seems to be dangerous. Sounds very Wild West to me. Take your time to heal. The art can wait.
Glad to see you are at least stopping back to keep us updated on your condition.
I know how you feel... it seems there is always a guy or two that seem to ruin the whole gaming experience. My way of dealing with it was to play a variety of games. They can't ruin ALL of them... (just my two cents worth).
Game Designer, BETA Tester, Model Designer, Figure Designer... HEY! It's what I do...
Better company really helps. I had no idea what was bringing me down until I stopped the game with the "problem kids". Now, I look forward to game day. Its an amazing hobby we have. I'm glad to not dread it anymore. Nothing else compares with the feeling of a good session, except maybe jamming. I like Kila's idea. More games, less chance for annoying folks to bring you down.
I'm feeling very lucky. I meet each tuesday with my friends to play game. A good half of that gamers are friends of mine from when we were pre-teens... the other are ppls added to the group in the years, but basically they also are lifetime friends of someone of the "original" players... we meet from about.... 15 years or more... still there. Obviously someone don't like too much someone else, is hard to have 30-40 ppl all liking each other. Anyway i never heard more than 2-3 discussion in all this time, and all was already forgotten the next week.
stoff: These are the versions that i was talking about.

cowboyleland: I have a simple plan: never make money, never pay taxes! Kidding, I know taxes how we pay for civilization.

squirmydad: That's okay, so is the IRS. I'm pretty sure my tax return is one of the millions stored in trailers and unprocessed.

Vermin King: Well, my day has been spent on work and taxes. Am I the last forum member to do their 2019 taxes?

Vermin King: It does help keep you from picking up unintended hitchhiker files, though. It would be better if they gave a notification that you are attempting to download multiple files and to check the box in front of each file you wish to download

Vermin King: Not all progress is beneficial...

cowboyleland: I see now. Some new upgrade (windows? chrome?) blocks downloads of "multiple files" at a time. The miniscule notification that the download was blocked appears in the corner of the screen for a fraction of a second. "They" call this progress.

cowboyleland: Hm. Ok, turns out I have it on a back-up drive already anyway.
