    September Hobby GOOOOOOOOOOOALS!

    I don't have a current track on my board (not going into the basement again tonight), but I have actual proof that I am working on things. These came out in late August, and this is where I am at with them right now. Weapons are all magnetized, and interchangeable between models. (The knights are partially assembled as well, and I have made all of the buildings from the set.) Glad I got these to this point (lots of armor still missing, along with heads and some other details), because I have two smaller versions arriving tomorrow.

    September Hobby GOOOOOOOOOOOALS!

    My board idea (so far) appears to be working. I go to the basement, start a timer, and just work for a bit. Record the time when I am done, and now, with a few days results, I can at least see how much time I am getting in (and where, but that's much less important at the moment), and even on the days where nothing got "done" (meaning no real visible progress), I can still look at the board and know that I am still getting something done.

    Getting to Know You: Sept 2018

    Cold spaghetti sandwiches. I'm pretty sure it was a concoction born during my high school cross country days, where I was always looking for high-carb, easy to eat foods.

    September Hobby GOOOOOOOOOOOALS!

    Going to track my September projects, because I have done very little this year (although I did really crack into Adeptus when it came out last month). A couple projects are missing, and a few are listed twice on the board. I'll just post an updated and corrected one later in the month. Anyway, I'm tracking pretty much anything I do - assemble, prime, paint, base, whatever, in terms of time, rather than completed minis, because that's gotten too depressing. And, I did cheat - I recorded the time I spent last night. I don’t have a problem.....

    Getting To Know You August

    Technically, there was a witness to this, but. . . Back in the early 2000s, I had a scut job that required me to be at work at 6 am. I got up one Sunday (I think) morning, and found that the 1" of snow we were supposed to get overnight was more like 6". So, I got out the door as quickly as possible, and made my way very slowly and carefully to work. I was halfway to work, driving less than 20 mph, and the light in front of me changed to yellow. So, I eased on the brakes, but since the streets were basically unplowed at this point, I had no traction and kept sliding forward. As the light turned red, I slid into the insection, now turning in a counter-clockwise direction. As I pass through 9 o'clock, I notice two things: 1) I am pointed directly at a car (which is fortunately not moving), and 2) it is a police officer. I barely register that, because I am now sliding backwards through the (otherwise empty - remember, it is before 6 am) intersection. I hit 3 o-clock about the end of the intersection, and wind up facing in the proper direction just beyond it, where I regain some semblance of control over the car, and continue on my way to work. I kept expecting to see lights from the officer behind me, but nothing. They rolled through the intersection like nothing happened, albeit a bit on the late side, what with me sliding through it and all. . . .
  6. My Gen Con haul this year was pretty light: Bad Doctor (from Mayday Games) and Red Dragon Inn were my only board game purchases. I picked up Kids on Bikes (new RPG), a Battlefoam bag, the entire release of the Helleniki faction for Arena Rex, and a Brewgrosh mini, shirt, mug and growler (from Privateer Press and the RAM). I think that was it. I also picked up what will eventually be a new scar, but is right now a nasty cut on a finger from trying to work on a mini while playing an RPG.

    DrakenStone Magnetic Modular Castle Terrain

    It's an interesting idea, but I want to know more about how the magnets are embedded into the resin. I looked at some ways to do it, but could never make it work, myself.

    A song of Ice and Fire - July

    Not yet. I'll have to take some when I unbox some of it, if no one beats me to it.

    A song of Ice and Fire - July

    Got my copy of this today. Now a friend is trying to buy half of it from me already.

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    Ah, I missed that. I kept scrolling to the bottom, looking for it there. My interest is roused again.

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    Not anymore, there isn't. I was on the fence - basically, a yes, and I wanted the large Cthulhu, but I needed to sell some gaming stuff that I am not using to justify getting it. Without the giant Cthulhu, I can pass (though I will still be selling gaming stuff - GenCon is coming, and my wallet is already complaining about it).
  12. My daughter and I played Oregon Trail yesterday, and actually won, in that one of us - not me - actually made the journey. And here I was, hoping to use it to teach a lesson in how hard the original game was. . . .
  13. I keep buying more HS-3 rubber (from Alumilite) and Hot Wheels cars. Making molds for terrain and modding cars for Gaslands, even though I don't think I have played a game of anything in at least 2 months. But tomorrow, I have to be an adult, and buy a new lawn mower, because our current one has given up the ghost after only 4 or 5 years. (And no, I am not going to fix it. I have dumped enough into this season already fixing broken parts that I should have just bought a new one. It would have been cheaper.) I might get one of the old fashioned reel mowers - a lot fewer parts to break and need replacing is looking awfully good, even though it would mean mowing twice as often.
  14. I got a new toy yesterday. I guess I'll have to bike a few hundred miles (or more, really) this summer to justify having it.
  15. Saw Deadpool 2 tonight. If you liked the first, you should like the second.
