Goedemorgen Allemaal ( Goodmorning All in Dutch).

 

Yesterday I experienced the nightmare that we of House Figmentius fear most.

I got notice that the order I placed is DELAYED!!!

 

The shock, the horror, waiting longer for my Lizard and Teutonic knight bust to arrive.,..

It took me a while to adjust, you understand this of course.

 

 

Woot! Coffee Czar!!  :wow: 

 

Congrats, a double espresso for me please, a little sugar and a cinnamon roll to go with it.

Well? Why are you looking at me like that?

Why is your hand tightening its grip on your axe?

Get me my coffee!!!

 

*Builds a nice very sticky web*

 

*decorates it with "some" minis*

 

Nice place here, hey a big spider collecting minis in her web, how cute.

Stick around.

 

I need to dig out practice minis for my presents...

 

Do I need to set up a coffee/tea bar and restaurant in here as well? I have the kobolds for it.

 

That would be nice, chilling a bit with a nice cup of black tea..

Could we store some minis here too?

No, no. The true horror is an order CANCELLED.

NOOOO Don't say that!!! Orders can't be cancelled... That is a horror story... Orders are ALWAYS delivered? Right? they are? Right?

We Tabletoppers dread that one as well.

Yeah we do... It's even worse when we had to cancel it ourselves...

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.

It is a noble cause you do Talae;

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

Noble is one word for it...you should see these assignments!

 

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..

 

I've heard and seen many horror stories concerning grading time. In that path lies madness.

 

In comparison, this makes the Necronomicon read like Chicken Soup for the Soul.

My mommy once waited on an order for a few months, then found out that the company had cancelled it because they "ran out". <_<

 

I recently tried ordering a really neat Silvanus statue for Hubby from Amazon, waited a couple months, then found out that "customs returned the package, here's a full refund". <_<

 

However, those are the only two instances I can remember of a cancelled order, in a long, glorious history of ordering fun-things from the interwebs. ::D: That includes ebaying. Pretty much all my experiences there have been pleasing.

*sniff*  I can't come in yet, though I'm sure I'll be here eventually.  My husband laughed when I read the house descriptions and "lovingly" informed me that Figmentius was a no-brainer for me.

 

I'm floored you only have 700+ posts, to be honest.

 

lol...I'm not entirely sure if that was a compliment, or a teasing jab....like "dang 'errytime I turn around I be like, there's another Matbar post."   :blush:

I think it's because you're such a presence around here.

 

 

Yep, that's what I meant; that and I've known you in RL for 2 years now and so it just seems to me that you should have more posts than that.  Don't know why.

 

 

 

Jasonator suggested a change in motto, which i really like since it plays on the Figmentius philosophy that one cannot die until all the minis are painted, so get more:

 

Colligo vivere in aeternum.

I collect to live forever.

 

 

Any objections?

Aw, thanks, I wasn't upset or anything, just figured it might be a jest in good fun.  I know I don't officially get a vote, but that is a really cool adjustment to the motto.

So I got to thinking, and one thing we should do here in Figmentius is to collect minis. As such, I thought I'd start picking a mini a day that I really like and linking it here.

Painted by Tosek

Sculpted by Bobby Jackson

Reaper Model: 60060

 

I really like the earthiness that Tosek put into the piece.  I especially like the leather waist cincher. The shaded metallics are also very well done.

No, I find it very Appropiate..

 

Immortality through Miniatures.. That's what we all strive for..that and Bacon.

Will this Mini of the day/week/month be any mini or just htose painted by House Figmentius.

Or would that be a new category.?
