House Figmentius Common Room, All Are Welcome

Recommended Posts

 

ub3r wonders why Jay always talks about himself in the third person... but then the thought is fleeting and he decides to guzzle more coffee and take a dip in his mini-filled pool to relax!

Remember the cowl that I wear, and that I am "a watcher, and a Recorder"... my brain works like a slide bar.

So I am always observing myself, and every thing around me.

Its probably a bad habit (oh terrible pun); but then, that is moi.

Jay

 

Heh, just giving you a hard time, my friend!  ^_^

I was assuming he was given the title because he needs a filter.

 

 

ETA: I think ub3r will know I'm kidding, but let's add in a ::P: just to be sure.

I have modified my signiture to reflect what I think is what I believe.

I think this is a better Latin phrase/motto:

Colligo vivere in aeternum.

*Steps in lightly* 

*shuffles feet through piles of miniatures* 

 

Oh no my OCD is kicking in, This place looks great... 

 

*Closes eyes and walks out*

 

LOL

 

I once threatened to glue all several units of my roommates 40k guys to the ceiling.   And here is the kicker- one guyin each unit would be out of square, or facing the wrong way or from the wrong army.

 

its that kicker that really would have driven him insane.

I'm sure we'll get to a Procrastinus room.. oh who am I kidding.. hahahahahahaha

anyone ambitious enough to start a room probably doesn't really belong in procrastius

 

Unless we were supposed to do something else.

 

Our house philosophy is simple, yet subtle.

 

Yes, if a thread for our house if ever started, you know we were supposed to be painting. Now that I think of it, there is a mini exchange finishing up soon......

Here is strange new thought:  

My college roommate played GW:  40k, fantasy, and tiny army scale.  All of which were painted.  I never saw him painting. He would even acquire new things and show up with them painted in his armies colors.   I think they matched at least, his OCD tendencies would not have permitted otherwise. 

 

Was he really spending every vacation frantically painting new acquisitions? Or paying a painter?  The size of his forces was impressive enough just based on the number and variety, and in 3 different games. I never had the impression that his family was rich, As it was a state school after all and his brother was on an ROTC scholarship. 

 

This is going to bug me, I wish I was still in touch with him.

I am trying to get done grading, but keep getting distracted with other things (like the forum). If I can finish at a reasonable time I can paint...or buy more minis online or something.

Can I be the official Natural Selection Prevention Specialist for our house?

I figured, between working the ER and painting, it's all I do!

It is a noble cause you do Talae;

Finish your grading, and we'll cheer you on as you get to your mini's...

We've got a frostgrave game going across the hall. Some D&D. Someone's playing 40k, and there are a couple of shame faced people even playing age of sigmar if you can believe that. Feel free to come on by if you get tired of sitting on pointy things. 

I'm not one of them:mellow:

 

[[  ...searches for door to Tabletop common room...  rolls d6 ...searches... rolls d6 ...searches... rolls d6... ]]

 

It was tough to choose which house because I could have qualified for any of them. I have 20 buckets of minis, 20 boxes as well, I have done and enjoy doing crazy conversions, I have 20 started but unfinished minis, I have at least that many started but unfinished terrain projects, and my painting skills have developed devolved to tabletop at best.

 

I picked TableTop because I liked the chess-knight best.

 

nb: the nickname for The House Tabletop Common room ought to be "the gameroom".

I taught half a course of college as an expert in History, I vowed I WOULD NEVER step up to a lectern again.

College students drove me to distraction, I can't imagine what you are dealing with.

I just know I relished the ability to say "GET OUT" and I tossed out a lot of idiots in the first day's of my teaching.

I have also graded "National Test's" and I have to admit, I finally quit because I became so depressed that I was afraid

that the number of 0's I was giving out, was going to drive me over the edge of sanity.

"I are doing fin fur me and my babie" written by a 15 year old, did me in..

      Sitting on the bedside table on my side of the bed is a large glass jar full of dice.

      It's not ALL my dice, of course. There's a dicebag at school, loaded with disposables that I don't much care if they're lost or stolen. There's my MAIN dicebag, on the dining table downstairs, with my favorite twenty siders, my weather die, directional die, body parts twelve sider, and spindle D6s, and my EMERGENCY dicebag, with two each of the classic Platonian polyhedrons. In the drawer of the nightstand, there's the poker dice for use in games that use poker hands, and the Dungeon Crawl Classics dice, which include the d3, the d14, the d24, and other weird dice used to play that particular game... all in their respective themed dicebags.

      There's a thread on these boards right now for a Kickstarter, selling tool steel dice that you could apparently load into a gauss launcher and blast square holes through buildings, they're so tough. Every Reapercon the last few years has had lovely artisinal dice made from rare woods and exotic elements for sale. Fulfilling in the next couple weeks is a Kickstarter I signed up for, selling Wizard Dice, complete with a d2 shaped like a spell book. Looking forward to that.

      So many dice have stories. There's the speckled blue that rolled three twenties in a row the night we took down the Serpent Wizard.
       
      There's the soft plastic d10s that came with the boxed Marvel Super Heroes game, and have rolled so many times they barely have corners any more.
       
      There's the chipped green ones I got in the swag bag at my first convention, chipping so bad I ought to throw them out but I get sentimental.
       
      There's the crystal d20, one of the first clear Gamescience dice ever made, that rolled multiple fumbles the night Kaltos the Rogue couldn't backstab anything to save his life, and he threw it out the window, and I found it later when I was mowing the yard, and it's never rolled a 1 since. Did it learn its lesson?
       
      And the three black d6s with red pips given to me by Cerberus, the Guardian Of Hell, the night his little girl was born, because with a baby in the house, it was going to be a few years before he had time for games, and then he moved his family to Tennessee and never asked for them back. For some reason, all three dice tend to roll high.... mostly 5s and 6s. I've tested them.
       
      There's the little set of miniature lavender translucent dice that my ex wife had to have. Woman never played a game in her life that wasn't Monopoly, Scrabble, or Gin Rummy, but she saw those dice and had to buy them. 

      There's the fake ivory d6 that when rolled fair, even out of a cup, will roll ones more than half the time. I have no idea where it came from.

      There's the little plastic box full of tiny d6s I got out of Pirates Of The Spanish Main boosterpacks, and I just shake the box and drop it when I wanna roll fireballs. There's the d20 that's as big as my fist and weighs nearly a pound.

      And I wonder: Is this fascinated acquisitiveness the result of starting my gaming career with a D&D Basic Box that had the little laminated chits instead of dice? Or do other people have this weird fascination for collector dice? Given the number of Kickstarters, I figure it CAN'T be just ME...

      A while back I figured that no collection was really complete without a Sir Forscale and I thought I'd paint him in the colors of Figmentius. Eventually I'll do one for all the houses.

      I was pleasantly surprised how well the freehand on the Unicorn turned out. Tonight is also the first time using my new camera, and the photos turned out quite well after I figured out what a Macro was.
