    Could be an Office Space / Superman-3 type situation, where the old bookkeeper wanted to skim the fractions of pennies when he left but messed up his decimals..

    Saw that kickstarter and so far, have resisted... Although I've got a similar idea for a portal-based diorama that would rock with this in the center...

    I have a cast iron grill pan that I love, but actually prefer the enameled cast iron dutch oven that I have as well.. Would *love* to replace all of my cookware with enameled cast iron, but the cost is pretty prohibitive.. I did a bunch of reading a while back about cast iron and it's enameled cousins - my understanding is that you want US or European made as the Cast Iron stuff coming out of China has serious quality issues - the typical complaint I have read is that they are very fragile. Properly cared for, cast iron can last generations.. my mom (in her 70's now) has a dutch oven that her grandmother used when her family was settling the Big Horn basin in Wyoming! There are several others in mom's camper, but 'grandmas dutch oven' is still her favorite..

    Why would you want to do that? Isn't it just *so* much fun to be in the below situation??

    Well said .. but I zeroed in on this statement - did I miss an announcement or something? Are some of the Bones IV figures going to be Bones Black?

    I do too, and I'm liking the first impressions. I'm not sure what's up with the troll; I haven't got my hands on one, and while I believe some of the issues, I'm a bit dubious at the number of people griping, especially about gap-filling. I had, even when I first started, been under the impression gap-filling was a standard step in miniatures, and sometimes you have to, and sometimes you don't, depending on the miniature and the part of the run it is, and whether it actually fits together, or ... I'm kind of wondering, y'know? And it's kind of tiresome. Worse when the people yelling crap on the people who are trying to help them. :/ I just got mine yesterday and haven't opened the blister, but from what I've seen on other social media, people aren't as much upset about needing to gap-fill, but that the troll comes pre-assembled *and* needing gap-filling .. Seems they'd like it assembled and gapless, or unassembled and (potentially) gappy .. but not both..

    Another downside to getting old and having loads of relatively specialized IT experience - I had to turn down what could have been an great opportunity with a terrific company because they can't meet my salary requirements for the position - even with them coming looking for me.

    Yup - was just surprised that they pulled it completely from the store, rather than the normal practice of showing 0 in stock.

    Missed out on a January order and went to grab a Bones Black owlbear today and see that he's not even listed in the store any longer.. (p.s. we really need a sad-panda emoticon)

    For 20F? nah.. 2 layers is enough most of the time .. t-shirt and light jacket when it's that warm! After all, last week, we had -50F windchills and were in the mid-40Fs yesterday .. Wisconsin.. where Mother Nature goes bipolar on us regularly..
