    Azer minis?

    I have several of the old WotC metal Azer. They're great! Damon.

    Learning a new language!

    Here's one for the collective wisdom of the forum. I have the potential of dating a woman from Ecuador. She pushes a lot of right buttons for me: attractive, smart, interesting, etc. English is her second language. Spanish obviously is her first. This may lead to an actual relationship, so I want to start looking into things in case that develops in that direction... Is there any good sources, tools, methods to learn a foreign language, in this case Spanish? I think it would be a cool aspect to a relationship to be able to talk & relate to her in her own native language. I don't expect it to happen overnight, but I would like to look into it... Damon.

    D&D books?

    Still waiting for Greyhawk to get some time in the light. Best we got was a softcover supporting Living Greyhawk back in 3e. Damon.

    Star Wars Legion

    Just looked & the Bandai at-st in 1/48 is half the price. Of course you don't get all the extras, but I'll bet its a better model FWIW... Started painting rebel troops tonight. Not super impressed with the details so far. Kind of soft. Damon.

    Star Wars Legion

    Thought I saw something about Rebel snowtroopers too. For your Hoth themed battles! I'm hoping we get Rogue One style rebel troopers. Like those much much better than the Endor style ones we got... Now that the Imperial Army may be a thing, wondering if we'll get a set of those someday? Damon.

    Star Wars Legion

    Detail of course looks a whole lot better! I wonder what the actual scale of the Imperial Assault AT-ST is? The information is out there... Also wondering how the Legion walker compares to the Bandai kit, which is 1/48 scale. Damon.

    Thank you everyone. It was OK, but it was also the 3 month anniversary since the end of my previous relationship. Damon.

    GW Announces WH40K 8th edition

    Well you can't have it both ways. Back in 3rd with their "pamphlet" Codicies a common complaint I saw was that they were too light on fluff. So GW releases more comprehensive books and now the complaint is that they are too expensive. Can't win! Personally I feel GW wastes a lot of space in their books on fluff that is not topical or to-the-point, & would be better served with more information dense fluff. I look at the 3e Necrons codex as a good example. Something that size, & that quality of fluff (maybe a little more by cutting out the hobby pagecount) would be a good place for GW's Codicies. That being said, I DO enjoy hardbacks MUCH more, are more handy when writing lists for me (I don't break the spine of my softback books, and feel aghast about people that do, or abuse their books to the point pages are falling out...). and to be fair GW has dropped the price on most of the books with the current edition ($40 as opposed to $50 for most, except Space Marines), so at least there is a trend going here... Damon.

    GW Announces WH40K 8th edition

    Personally I'm convinced if they separated army lists from the fluff, the fluff books will just sit, or not sell in enough numbers to justify widespread availability. Damon.

    GW Announces WH40K 8th edition

    Apparently in one of the promo photos there were some never-before-seen ork models. I couldn't tell personally, but if that's true that bodes well for the greenskins... Damon.

    Any elf catapults available anywhere?

    Man LOVE the Gob-lobber. Never got it when it came out, but managed to acquire one several years ago, though not with all the figures. Use it as a rock lobber in my Dwarf WHFB army. Damon.

    Which base size for D&D 5e (Bones) Orc

    I don't have those orcs either, but 25mm is the way to go. I use rounds (makes positioning easier on a crowded board). If the feet hang over a little I tend not to worry much. EM-4 makes good plastic bases, but IIRC Reaper has 25mm rounds too... Damon.

    Warmonger Miniatures (fantasy line from Wargames Foundry) has something similar to the Orc Man-Mangler in the goblin range, if you are so interested... Damon

    Old Glory Miniatures makes a fairly extensive range of generic historical siege equipment under Accessories on their webpage. Damon;
