House Figmentius Common Room, All Are Welcome

Recommended Posts

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?

 

sits in corner shaking and sucking on thumb...

We Tabletoppers dread that one as well.

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

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.

      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.
