Whoa, hot off the rumors that my parent company (WB Games) was on and then off the sale block to Microsoft Gaming Studios, MGS went out and bought Bethesda/Zenimax -- that's a tremendous collection of talented studios (if, uh, the BSW/ZMM end was awkwardly run) -- Elder Scrolls, Fallout, Wolfenstein, Doom, Dishonored, Quake, and Starfield franches.
They better not mess with Arkane--I need me more games like Dishonored.
@csalzman / other woodworkers on here--in case you didn't see it, Lumberjack's Tree Service is having a big lumber clearance sale Oct 16-18th. "Up to 50% off slabs, live-edge, and lumber"

Well, we announced another of our 2021 games during the PS5 showcase! https://hogwartslegacy.warnerbrosgames.com/
It's, uh... it's fraught because of J.K. Rowling's gradual descent into gibbering online madness.
Thanks for the Goosernetes sticker, @bdimcheff !
Feels very appropriate to be listening to a biography of Alexander whilst painting these elves; very macedonian in inspiration.
The weekend's painting--a second Dawnrider (the one with scales on his shield and roses beneath his horse). Cut the painting time down by a third while trying to get better panel lining, clearer sigils, and better striping on the crest, and I think I succeeded! I'd like to maintain this quality while cutting painting time down again on the next one.
I think I'm going to paint a grey horse.
