  1. There's a Princess Auto in Regina at the east end of Victoria by Peavey Mart, just behind Superstore. Think there's one in Saskatoon too but I haven't been up there for a long time.
  2. That's not natural hair. It's a tribble on a short leash. Last line of defense against klingons, mexicans and other aliens.

    I've done minor mods on models for years. Before I quit playing 40k I scratch built a griffon mortar out of plastic card using papercraft plans. Kids destroyed it when they were little because it wasn't as tough as I thought it would be and let them play with it. No pics of it on this computer. The last couple of years I've been working on terrain because I'm tired of the junk we used forever and can make prettier stuff now. 2 of my favourite examples are my tavern (no burning it down you barbarians!) I built last winter and a hill I did a few months ago.
  4. My excuse is because I'm married with children. Never had much money before either but at least I didn't have the debts I do now.

    Yes/no. I have lots of old school minis, but I don't have a painting queue; I paint stuff as the mood strikes me. Pretty much this. I'm hoping to paint the last of my GW high elves sometime soon and they'll be around that 20 year mark. I have older but no specific plans for them at the moment. They's been sitting here for 20+ unpainted and I'm working to correct that.

    Sleep in, snuggle with the wife, watch tv, play with kids and hopefully something hobby related.
  7. I haven't touched a brush or mini all of March. Walked by them 2 or 3 times is the closest I've gotten. Things got busy on me and I haven't had energy in the evenings. Hoping to do something later today.
  8. Happy Birthday kristof65 !!

    Happy Birthday!
  9. You ain't the only one. It's been a hectic week and I haven't been sleeping well. Today I could have slept in but instead I was awake an hour earlier than normal for some reason. Trying to figure out if anybody wants to go tobaganning out at the farm when I go to do chores. It's a beautiful day outside for it.
  10. What's on TV?

    I've read a few of the Shannara books and the Elfstones is one of my favourites. The series seems to be mostly based on it. Not because it's a super book but it's a nice story and one of the first fantasy things I ever read as a kid. The setting was a far future where magic had returned a little bit and there were pockets of hidden ancient ruins of a high tech society. Pretty standard tropes for a fantasy novel and not necessarilly our world/future. The high tech and ruins were only really a part of one of the books I read. The series made me cringe and I haven't watched the second season because of what it did to my beloved childhood characters. Will is an idiot instead of a well meaning but inexperienced young man grappling with overwhelming events. Eretria is a conviving beech instead of a basically decent person trying to get out of a nasty situation any way possible. They took a relatively straight forward young adult level novel about good, evil and sacrifice and tried to turn it into an edgey, adult fantasy soap opera. Just didn't work for me.
  11. I might have missed them because I just took a quick cruise through the store. I didn't see any minis except GW and FFG Star Wars stuff in the far corner. Not a big deal because I only went in because I was right beside the store. Wasn't a special or wasted trip.
  12. Twice a year I pull out this and rejoice that Saskatchewan is the land of the partially insane instead of the totally insane like most of the rest of the world. I've only met one person that really liked DST and yet almost nowhere wants to get rid of it. Hey, @Pezler the Polychromatic, do you know if there's somewhere in Regina that carries the nolzur's marvelous miniatures line? I was just in the store right beside the Cornwall center (forgetting name ) and they didn't have any. I'm going to be up there a couple times in April and I was wanting to check some of these out in person.
  13. And how much does it cost? I have 2 people that I'd definitely be willing to buy tickets for. They're so lovable I'm sure if I ask around I can get lots of others to contribute too. I is tired. Got to sleep sometime after 1 am, got up at 6 am, drove 2.5 hours for a 10 minute doctor's appointment for my mom, shopped for a couple hours in the city and another 2.5 hours home. Mom's got a tiny spot of skin cancer on her cheek that they'll remove in April. Occupational hazard around here. A lot of seniors I know have it because of years of working outside. Actually went to a game store because it was right beside her doctor's office. They didn't have much for minis except for a small selection of GW so I came home empty handed. May or may not have bought a swather that I need badly. I won the online auction this afternoon for way less than what it's worth but it was also under the reserve price. So now I'm waiting for the auction company to let me know if the seller will accept my offer or not. It was a headache to get things set up for this at the last minute and I was excited to find out I got it so cheap and then disappointed to found out I might not get it. Hate not knowing which it is but they'll inform me in the next couple of days.
  14. I could go there right now myself except I'm already married with kids. They keep me sane and somewhat sociable when they aren't driving me crazy. Grew up with a large extended family and had them turn rabid over the last many years. Now I hardly talk to any of them even the ones I like and get along with. Some days being a hermit sounds like fun. That's my preferred method of fixing anything but I've been informed that it may not be the best with electronics.
