  1. Placed an order for some terrain for Test of Honor - 3 Sarissa Japanese houses, some rice stores, and some stalls. Should be enough for a decent 3x3 board, or sparse for two of them. Also picked up Hail Caesar, to round out my Warlord Games collection. (Plus, I needed some Romans for my SAGA army.) And I bought yet another pound of rubber for a couple of molds.
  2. Not a planned purchase, but I am going to have to get a new starter for the minivan. And I am glad that the insurance included tows.
  3. Live

    I've been watching this one. I didn't back the initial one, and wish I had. That galleon is mighty tempting, even though I would almost never use it.
  4. I need some walls for 15mm gaming (mainly ACW, probably WWII and Nappies eventually), and I want something that looks reasonably accurate across that time period. Figure two intact, one gate, one breached, and a corner section (all replicated as needed) will let me do almost anything.
  5. I suspect that I probably could do it. Let's try it like this. That was too small. How is this? Huh. Must have the size wrong. I could probably play around with it for a bit, and figure it out. but I used to work (years ago) as an typesetter, and we did everything in TeX, so bbcode should be fairly simple.
  6. Couple days late (since I got it on Friday), but I finally picked up a set of cross-bars for the roof rack. As a result, we could finally actually put the kayaks that we have had for a while to good use. (And, I admit to being a little pleased with myself - got them installed, got the kayak carrier put up, attached both kayaks, drove them to the lake and back without losing them, so I must have done it correctly.)
  7. I picked up a set of cross-bars to fit on the roof rack of the minivan today. I need them to secure the kayaks that we have had for several years that have only seen use in the neighbors swimming pool. Hope to take them out onto the lake on the 4th.
  8. Probably in the last week or so? And. neither - I was a runner. Lost of the roads in my area of town (in the US) have no sidewalks, so it is run on the shoulder until I can get to them. For outdoor runs, I can generally assume that at least one person will look left toward oncoming traffic, and then turn to the right without ever looking in that direction. I carry a little air horn to honk and get attention, which sometimes works. And sometimes it doesn't, and I get to find out how well I can dodge. They're interesting, and I generally ignore them. :)
  9. That's basically all it is. The gate is cut up toothpick and scraps from the basla. They're easy enough to make, but I want to have feet of them (like, 20 feet of walls or more), so once I have the masters finished, I will make molds of them all and cast them in resin (which is why the gate isn't open, because closed and solid is much easier).
  10. I'm actually about the point of gluing this together and making the molds, but I still haven't decided if I want to go for interlocking walls or not. I am definitely leaning in that direction though. Still need to make the floor. The inside will just be flat walls - while it will be hollow, that's mainly more for weight considerations than play - I'll go a different route when I make detailed interiors.
  11. Thanks. It's a bit rougher as a kit than I like - at some point, I will redo the roof, which is where most of my issue lies. But, if nice enough that I can make a small village in an afternoon without much of a problem, which was my goal.
  12. I'm a stay-at-home dad, so technically, the entire house/yard is my work space. On that note, heck no, am I going to personalize it. I managed to carve off a section of the basement that the rest of the family generally ignores, but I don't have any geeky artwork or posters displayed. It's mainly my workbench, and frankly, I think my wife would be a lot happier sometimes if I could get everything tucked away behind some closed cabinet doors.
  13. Finished molds for the other two sides, etc - quick paint job, with no real effort made to fit things together perfectly. (Walls are dry fit together, roof & gables held together for the moment with hot glue). Reaper mini shown for scale.
  14. Still have to make the walls for the other two sides (only have 1 each of long and short), but I wanted to check if I got the roof right. Looked good, until it sagged a little - resin was still a bit soft. Bent it back, and it should be done curing soon.
  15. More than I plan on using for myself. :)
  16. Still have to do roof and walls, but it is coming along.
  17. Wasn't for me, but I signed up for the comic club at the FLGS - I let each of my kids pick a subscription, and I will get them the 1-2 comics/month. (The fact that I save a bit on every miniature purchase is purely an academic interest, and had no bearing in that decision. Well, probably no bearing. Not much, anyway.)
  18. Not an acquisition per se, but I stopped off at my FLGS yesterday. While I was there, I looked at the new 40k promo materials they had for 8th edition. My dislike for GW is near legendary in my area, but GW has been doing a lot of things right lately, and I'm not happy with the direction that my (former) favorite game has been taking lately. So, after some deliberation, I am on the list to get one of the 8th ed box sets when it comes in. Oooh - and my Bones 3 should be getting here any day now. Soon, my precious, soon. . . .
  19. Most of the minis events that I wanted to do only had one time slot, and are sold out. My second-string events are still open, though I haven't finished filling my cart yet. I am bummed that I did not get into the Orc Stomp 5k though.
  20. I've never felt the need to have the latest tech. For some things (like my GPS watch), I use what is sufficient for my needs - the bells and whistles of the newest stuff is neat, but I'll likely never use those features, so why pay for them? With computers - when I need to replace them, I look toward what is still near top of the line, so far as my budget will allow. But that is mainly so that I do not have to replace as often as things become outmoded - my current laptop and tower both need replacing, but both are well over 5 years old, and might be over 8. I'd like to not have to replace either for a similarly long period of time when I do break down and buy the new models.
  21. Not nearly enough. My current games are (in no particular order): SAGA, Warmahordes, Test of Honor. I plan on playing more Black Powder (AWI, Nappies and ACW), Guild Ball, Blood & Plunder and Bolt Action soon, and I got roped into the store's Shadow War: Armageddon campaign, so I guess I am playing that too. I'd love to get in some Kings of War, Frostgrave, Infinity. . . . the list really could continue for another 10-20 games that I have, want to play, and just don't have time to get to.
  22. Live

    Wow, this did not get a lot of traffic. I did back it, though I am not sure I will assemble a group to play it. I might get them to play the skirmish game though.
  23. Pre-launch

    Speak for yourself. Buying unpainted minis is immortality on an installment plan. ;)
  24. Pre-launch

    Yeah, I kick myself at least once a week because I did not get the "Not Tiamat" at the time.
  25. I have kids, so unless I manage to block off time, for a good chunk of the year, the weekends have scouts, dance, soccer, cross-country, etc taking up blocks of time. Add in the obligatory yard and house chores that I did not do during the week, church, and an occasional run with the run group on Saturday mornings, and I am lucky to get any gaming time.
