I was informed today by my roommate that my vacuum cleaner broke. I don't know how, exactly, but given that the thing is about 15 years old, and wasn't exactly a high quality one to start, it could be anything from just a busted belt to the motor going out. I've replaced belts on it before and done some other stuff, but this time I've decided, without even knowing what's wrong, that I'm pretty much done with the thing.

 

So I just ordered a refurbished Dyson. Because I figured go big or go home. And $200 for a refurbished one is way better than $500 for a new one.

I don't recall posting in this thread recently, so aside from yesterday's classified Reaper order I recently picked up a pack of 50 cheap little brushes.  I don't know that I'll ever do a goblin challenge (currently the only eligible piece I own is the oversized Kaladrax) but at least I have the brushes.  I'll likely paint a mini as a test piece later to see if the pain of using little brushes is worth it.

 

 I also ordered a plano tackle box to use as a carrying case.  It holds 4 3700 trays and the top portion can fit goremaw size minis, which should cover most of my tabletop needs.

Bought an EvilBay lot of 5 miniatures for $14.00, and another lot from the same seller of 6 figures for $12.00...

Pretty good deals, in general. But not something you might look too closely at - there's a lot of cheap figures on ebay.

 

Except that two of the first five figures were the Tyr and Maglubiyet figures from Ral Partha's 10-521 Planescape: Powers of Law box set...

 

And three of the second lot are the Heartbreaker Magic: the Gathering 9111 Prodigal Sorcerer, 8114 Earth Elemental, and the 9115 Black Knight...

 

 

 

   AND, as it turns out (lol)...  ::D::B):::D:

 

   The other figures included a second copy of the Heartbreaker M:tG Black Knight, and three Ral Partha AD&D minis - a Huntsman's Hound from 10-515 Ravenloft: Castle Forlorn, and two figures from 10-524 Birthright: Personalities of the Blood, Darien Aven and Teodor Profiev, without his accessory piece...

:winkthumbs::bday::winkthumbs:

 

 

 In other news, I also picked up a slightly ratty set of the contents (no box and missing one of the cards) of the Council of Worms box set for just under $20 after shipping.

The council or wyrms and the wyrm bazaar.  Those two have been sitting on my shelf a while for me to paint.  I want to do a diorama but channeled find the  Right mood.

 

In other news, I broke down and placed an order with green stuff world to try out the roller molds.  Sounds fun to play with.

the tiny game store on Fort has a 30% off everything sale for their 5 year anniversary, so i picked up a couple things.

 

they don't stock much. Basically trading cards, citadel paints, and warhammer miniatures is their entire store. It's also super tiny, not much room for anything, but they occasionaly have some nice things

Big score from an auction house last week.

 

9 of the 10 figure sets are still in shrinkwrap and the board games are unplayed

Got back from Gen Con today and wound up with a very odd mix.  First time I have seen Badger airbrushes at that vendor hall.  Got to enjoy some time playing with airbrushes and paints and primers.  Wound up coming home with some really nice airbrush primer some Matte compound and a new air brush!

 

Also brought home a new expansion for kingdom death and some new battle foam

I return from Gen Con with too much loots, if such a thing exists. My wallet cries, but discounts are hard to resist!  Magna racks from Battle Foam, 4 Guild Ball teams and a limited edition Critical Role Vax'ildan.  A visit to Iron Wind Metals booth to get some Ral Partha recasts.  Concentrated on beasties, both animals and monsters, about 25 different pieces.  But among the bin mix I also found this guy -

And I have no idea who he is.  Even the cashier was surprised to see him and couldn't remember seeing him before.  A later piece seeing as he's marked the year 2000.  Driving me crazy not knowing.

 

Also picked up, at a good discount, a couple Rackhams.  Love the sculpts and since they're getting hard to find, I couldn't pass it up.  Wish I could have bought more.

And last, but not least.  My favorite find.  The hubby was a bit bewildered by my OOOOOOOOH!

A Checkmate Dragon!  Not the original box, but who cares.  Price was awesome!  Super excited to paint it up.

I acquired a small elipical today. It's meant to be used under desks, while sitting down. As such, it will be really good for my wimpy knees. 

 

It's green.

Received the last of the prepainted figures I needed for my RCon games! I'm debating on tweaking a color scheme on one of them.

Awesome!

 

I painted one years ago, not my best work but lots of fun.

I did need to fill a large gap with GS though where the thicker part of the tail needed to be attached to the body.
