    Nobody ever gives me an opportunity to mention my prowess in the bedroom. ... Seriously, I'm great at building pillow forts.

    Well, for a less smart-elf answer, wife and I will have finally paid off our honeymoon loan by the end of next month. So having more money freed up will be nice.

    Boring can be good. My mother is coming to stay with us tomorrow for a week, I'd love a week of boring instead.

    I'd never driven so straight for so long before going to the US and driving on an interstate highway. Driving up the California coast was a much more familiar experience. Reminds me of this one:

    Summer is a long way off, but I suppose I'm looking forward to Christmas.

    Post to Australia: How long is too long?

    NZ here, I've had Reaper orders turn up in about a week and a half to two weeks for the most part. My Bones 3 KS rewards took a comparatively long time to get to me via an Australian distributor though, so maybe the problem is domestic.

    Star Wars Legion

    Oh absolutely, it would have been handy to have a game come out that was specially designed for the background. Personally I'll be waiting for Ganesha Games' Harder Than Steel (hopefully this year).

    Star Wars Legion

    Yeah I was really hoping (with Imperial Assault first and then Legion) for a game that would let me get some use out of all the WotC prepaints that I've got. Doesn't seem to be feasible with Legion, though. I've heard that the starter set is pretty bare-bones in what it gives you as well. Not enough dice, unbalanced forces etc.

    Eating. Which is problematic, of course.

    I've been working at McDonald's on and off for the last 18 years, so... yeah. I'm very good at it, too. Probably why my boss made me the customer experience manager for my restaurant. Crazy stories... we're in a student town so... I've seen people thrown over the counter, nude people running through the drive thru, fist fights, food fights, shopping trolleys are frequently left in the parking lot, and so on. Honestly though, they're the exception and most people are perfectly nice. It's important not to fall victim to negative confirmation bias.

    See we have Rotorua in NZ, which smells like farts all the time.

    Wife just got my son to tidy up his Duplo by bribing him with watching Kitty Cat Dance. I think I'm ok with this.

    Freakin' love me some sausage rolls. I've made some using my meatloaf recipe before and it was amazing. My go-to for party food to make is probably deviled eggs. I like to mix up the seasonings pretty regularly. To eat, I'm all over a cheese board/antipasto platter if there is one.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    My domestic online retailer finally got the beholder in stock today! They went up this afternoon and I saw them listed as "in stock" before going out to a work dinner at 5:30. A couple of hours later, part way through the meal, I mentioned the beholder mini to a buddy of mine and he checked their website to have a look at it. There were two left, so he bought them for us straight away, and now they're sold out. In the space of a few hours.

    1. I got down to the local Warhammer shop and played a game! 2. Another game! 3. Reworking the army list so maybe I don't lose as hard!

    Kudos for the commitment. I usually put old furniture up on an online auction site for $1 reserve, buyer must pick up. Things usually go, and I can at least buy myself an ice cream.

    I'm really glad my boy never showed any interest in removing his nappy, or any real interest in the contents of it. I've heard horror stories...

    I am about to enjoy a pink bubble bath with a ducky water wheel because I am a grown-elf man.

    Mmm, coffee time. Acceptable alternative to sleep, I suppose.

  25. I've been getting some games of Age of Sigmar in at the local Warhammer shop lately, one last week and one yesterday. Here's a pic from last weeks game, wherein my (mostly shamefully unpainted) dwarfs get slaughtered by the (quite awesomely converted and mostly nicely painted) Daemons of Nurgle. Big lesson learned here is that an all-dwarf army is incredibly slow, and thus terrible at capturing objectives. It forced me into rushing forward, which meant that I wasn't playing to the defensive strength of my army. Still, big units of warriors are actually pretty durable once they form a shield wall. So last night I went for a mixed Order army and included some elves - two griffon riders and a unit of reaver cavalry - along with a token unit of dwarf warriors and an artillery battery of two organ guns and a human engineer ('cause dwarfs are going to love a human telling them how to shoot their guns better, right?). I played against Daemons of Tzeentch and promptly got slaughtered again. BUT the mistakes in this game were largely in deployment - I should have realised that my opponent would have ended up with the first turn because he had fewer unit to deploy and his army was fast and shooty, so he'd want to close the distance and get me within range, which means I should have deployed further back with just about everything. The cannons had the range to shoot over half way across the table, and the griffons and cavalry had the movement to threaten a similar distance. As it was, I deployed as far forward as possible and lost most of my ranged units on his first turn. I'm going to try the same army list again next week, as I don't think I got a fair representation of what most of the units are capable of, and this time I'll try not to deploy like a scrub. Might swap one of the cannons out for more troops as well.
