Aquired 2 steps on the Government pay scale, about 15000NOK(about $1800), or about 10K NOK($1200) after taxes... I hope... 

(Just hoping I'm not aquiring a new tax bracket, also)

It's the same job, with the same title and everything, I just got a bit more in the monthly paycheck.  

(It translates to about $100 / month)

 

I was one of the lucky winners of this year's local negotiations. 

Here in Norway, every government employee get a 'pay scale' based on their title, and which step on the scale they're on is decided by how many years they've been employed. The amount on each step can be changed by negotiations centrally - to offset inflation mostly -  and some years there's a bit in every organisation that gets sent out for local negotiations in order to adjust injustice, improve the standing on a specific group or to reward hard workers.Then some lucky employees may skip to the next higher slot, two slots up or even in some rare cases 3. 

Injustice may be that a new hire gets a higher salary than senior workers because it's dificult to find find new workers with the specific skillset. Then you want to adjust the other workers salary up a bit so they don't get ideas about seeking employment in the private sector instead.    

 

 

The package waiting for me is most probably the Bean 3D Resin printer...

Acquired or will acquire my first Green Stuff World order!! Oddly no leaf stampers, which was one of the things that caught my interest when they first came out:

 

Empty Tool Case. Needed one & with LVO in February, I'll probably be painting something when not DMing. Looked nice.

 

Resin Tree stumps x 8: Needed 1 for the statue in Thundertree (LMofP AL game) & since we are on a 3 week break from that game, hoping it'll show up before I need to use it. They barely made it into the town of Phandelver. So plenty of time....hopefully. :)

 

50x Resin burning skull pack. I have no idea what I'm gonna do with 50 of them but I need at least one to make a Flameskull mini for LMofP

 

Banding rotary wheel: For photographs & airbrushing. Got it for the next purchase:

 

Lightbox!!! Hoping its worth the wait. I've been wanting one for quite some time. I guess this means I'm gonna have to show off my paintjobs now eh? :poke:

 

I'll update the order with pics when it arrives sometime next month or so.

 

Luck be with me yesterday, bought a scratch ticket & I won $100 bucks!!! I guess makes up for having to cancel game night. So I placed a retail therapy order of Wizkids minis & other: 

 

NOLZUR'S:

5e goblins

orcs

Adult Remohraz

Frost Giant

Female human wizard

Gelatinous Cube

elf male sorcerer

Formorian

female air genasi rogue

female fire genasi wizard

owlbear!!!

Shambling Mound (after seeing @Darsc Zacal pics I knew I had to have one!! + Death House finale!)

Rust Monster

 

DEEP CUTS (Pathfinder/Wizkids):

Male human monk (gonna compare the pose of one to the Reaper Bones & determine which one will be my Yuan-Ti pitmaster mini (man with multi-snakes for his arms))

SILVER DRAGON!!! Yes!!!

Bartender/Dancer

Magic Dias

Serving Girl/Merchant

Children (again)

Female human bard

 

prepainted minis:

 

Hypnotic Spirit x3: These are the ones out of the Drizzt boardgame, so they are translucent blue (for Vegas)

 

Couple days ago I picked these up:

Kingmaker:

Trollhound (Vegas)

Scarecrow

 

WDH:

Ziraj the Hunter (half-orc)

 

LC:

Gnome Eldritch Knight (possible Vegas)

 

The Army Painter:

Last of the Warpaints I needed besides a couple of Effects paints I really don't need (glosscoat & grey primer)

 

Pixie Pink

Fog Grey

Pure Red

Glistening Blood (really didn't  need this but eh, might as well try it)

 

Lowlands Shrub base material

 

Reaper Bones:

 

Yeti Warrior

Avatar of Resilience (Rhino)

Avatar of Protection (Water Buffalo) (last 2 Avatars I needed)

77518: Cultists x2 (LMoP cult of the dragon members)

Aglanda, Herald of Razmir (leader of LMoP CotD, gonna change the person to a female)

 

Looking forward to everything, but I think it's the Shambling Mound, the giant Wizkids unpainted or the Lightbox, the most.

Today I acquired my Kings of War Vanguard rewards! I've gone through some of it, but nowhere near all of it, and I am not disappointed at all so far. I also have absolutely no idea where I'm going to put it all...

 

Spoiler for picture bomb because this isn't even half of the stuff. Eventually, I'm gonna post pictures of everything. Probably over the weekend, if I can manage to clean off a table or something and don't have to use my bed like I am now.

Hard plastic? 

 

Mostly PVC, but some hard plastic.

 

The ones that are on actual sprues are hard plastic. The new Basilean Men at Arms, the Nightstalker Scarecrows/Spectres, and the Abyssal Lower Abyssals are all hard plastic. It totals maybe 30 figures out of the new stuff. But I also got warbands that were based on existing minis, and they include some Orc Axes and Orc Greataxes, which are also hard plastic. Oh, and the Orcs came with a metal Krudger and Godspeaker. And I just realized that my orcs didn't come with the skulks they were supposed to come with, because I'm pretty sure those are supposed to be hard plastic as well.

 

Everything else is either PVC or resin.

Spaced off, this one. Nice haul.

 

Went to the local card shop to look thru the Wizkids unpainted figures he had & came away with the Nolzur's male human bard pack:

Figures are decent, & look like their 3d renders but there a bit of assembly problems as sleeveless bard's arm has a seem & sword bard suffers from bendy blade. Store had a bunch of the new assortment as well, kinda surprised to see that. Now I wish I hadn't order online.

 

Picked the figure up for my half-orc bard player in AL.

Got my paints that I won!  Reaper shipped them on Friday and they were here on Monday.  Reaper rules!  Most places ship it as slow as possible especially when they are covering shipping. 

 

Anyways here they are:

20181031_221000_HDR.thumb.jpg.bdf3556b855e937f376de187cb964457.jpg

 

So I got both the new Dungeon Dwellers paint sets and they threw in a sample of some kind.  Looks like some kind of blue.  I am super excited about getting a sample 

 

Oh and I got another bottle if the Breast Cancer Awareness Pink.
