    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    I'm waiting for 2 books that are supposed to be coming on Purolator. I've been at the house in town a lot lately and because I'm waiting on Purolator I've noticed one of their trucks goes by here almost every day. Now after waiting 2 weeks I get a message that there's a problem with delivering my books. Need to call them to find out what.

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    We've had a couple days of colder weather and light snow. Added up to 2-3 inches of very light fluff and amazingly enough almost no wind so it never really drifted.

    I'm surprised at how many nos there are. So I'll add mine. No, very rarely drink it. Lots of caffeine just makes me shaky and I prefer my water to not be brown. Don't care for hot drinks most of the time.
  4. Yeah, that's why I decided to add some trees. Just the rock was a little too bare. The overall theme for most of my terrain is sort of a temperate edge of a forest. Want to do some other stuff but for now more greenery.

    Getting to know you: January 2019

    City cousin used to come visit in the summers and introduced me and another country cousin to D&D. He had a handful of minis with him for us to use as characters. That sparked the interest but it was a few years before we saw the address for Grenadier minis in the AD&D rulebooks and ordered a catalogue. Bought a few minis and painted them badly with oil based paints. Eventually switched over to GW everything in the late 80s because there was a relatively local game store dealing in it. Always did do most of my buying by mail order even pre internet.
  6. Just bought Xenonauts at the Humble Bundle website. I've been interested in this game for awhile because I love Xcom but just didn't feel like paying $30 for it. Got it for $8.30 canadian. Downloading it from Steam now.
  7. Yeah, I still wonder why you need green teddy bear fur but I'm pretty happy with it.

    80028: Sister Maria

    I was digging through everything looking for minis that sort of matched with the Sisters of Sigmar and she fit the bill. I needed a thief and so her story was born. She's very good at her job because nobody would suspect a nun to be an expert and break and entry. Add in that she's older and on the heavy side and nobody looks twice at her.
  9. Ok now I'm jealous. I want a new laptop and have been studying what's out there and that was one of my top pics. Can't afford it right now anyhow but at least I know what I'm looking for and can keep an eye out for deals. Might settle for a MSI GV63 because it's about $300 canadian cheaper but it would be nice to have the better graphics card. I don't really play top end games anymore but it's not like you can upgrade laptops easily if you decide you want better graphics.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    For once when I have the afternoon free I'm not getting a serious case of the nap attack. Should go paint something because I haven't for the last week but seem to have developed a bad case of recliner butt. Got to tear it free and go do something other than read forums and watch crafting videos.

    Skeletal Minotaur

    Really like the horns and the shading on all the bones. Very nice all around.
  12. Of course they did. More would have been better but I still haven't got the 3D printer. Silly things like food and house expenses have kept me from it. One of these days I might get paid all the money owing me. 1 is enough for most of my battles but a siege needs more. It is green teddy bear fur. I'd been looking for something decent and cheap for a long time with no lucky. A couple years ago I was at the fabric store with the wife and found this in the 50% off bin. I really like it but it's just a little bit short for the ping pong table. My mother in law laughed at me when I got it. She said she'd never seen me happier with something I'd bought. It was also part of what kicked me into gear for making nicer looking terrain.

    I'm not really qualified to do more than your average tinkerer anymore. It's one thing to have read up and memorised how to do something and another to have the practical experience doing it. Plus it's been almost 20 years since I took the course. I'm more at home cleaning up and swapping out parts on WW2 rifles than doing fine work like custom trigger jobs.

    Papercraft Sail Ships

    How big are those? They look great. I've always wanted to try some Age of Sail naval games but never have. The rigging on those looks like it would give me fits to try and assemble.
  15. A few more close up pics. We've left out magic and monsters for this battle. Wanting to just focus on the siege itself to see how we like all the unfamiliar and experimental rules. We do have a handful of characters on each side. I'll try to get some photos once the goblins are awake and do a AAR with some photos of interesting moments.
