Check out the Art of Manliness store, it was on sale for $23! Better made than a Merkur. I like Derby blades but my favorite ones are the Israeli made ones from the Dollar Store!

I suppose, if its your thing, go for it.  Me I will continue to use cheap disposables for the 2 square inches on my face I feel I need to shave.

Just got a new razor. Made by the Edwin Jagger company for the Art of Manliness, it is gorgeous.

Looks nice. Not a fan of smooth round handles, though. They always felt weird and slippery with wet hands. And I don't really shave anymore. But when I was still shaving, I used a Merkur Classic 1904 and either Merkur Platinum or Feather Platinum blades. I preferred the Feather because they always felt like they gave a better shave, but I I also had much more of a tendency to nick the crap out of my neck with them.

 

Today I acquired a Chessex mini case. It's nothing fancy. Just a gray plastic box with a hinged lid.

Received this week (so far):

 

Portable Paint Station from Warmage.de (from their KS)

Just have to get it put together (when I can acquire instructions in english)

 

 

Oh, you're gonna have some fun with THAT (probably a good thing, I mean.. I did). Have clamps handy - LOTS of clamps. Yer gonna need 'em.

Mine assembled pretty easy, but I didn't have nearly enough clamps.

1. You never have enough clamps.

2. MDF projects need enough clamps.

3. You wanted more clamps, anyway.

4. See #1.

Did you seal it?

 

Sounds like a run to Home Depot is in order. More Acquisitions.

SO I spotted these Rats that someone on the C.M.o.N. Forum was using in a vignette. They were Freebooter/Werner Klocke minis....I needed them.

Finding someone who carried Freebooter was aa chore, but it led me to making my first purchase from Noble Knight...they did a fine job getting the

stuff to me.:

These are the SOL 010 Rat Swarms. The little Fellow bottom far right is The Reason for this order:

While I was at it, I added a few Goblins to my Goblin array:

GOB 011- Moma Cebada

GOB 013-Cucaracha

Freebooter minis - Fantastic minis. One of these years I need to acquire the undead octopi set they have. Why? Undead. Octopi.

 

Acquired but not really mine:

Ellis Island casino-hotel-brewery growler: Came with the room I booked for LVO weekend.

As noted, I'm not actually at the LVO hotel (Bally's) as I really didn't wanna pay the room rate nor the resort fee. Place I'm staying at  (Ellis Island) is more then half of what Bally's would cost me + the resort rate is reasonable. I'm only a 15-20 min walk to LVO. I can handle that!!

 

Also since I didn't have time yesterday & I spaced posting at the overnight hotel. Acquired: Robert Kennedy's Typhoon paint rack (#2). Very fast shipping. BUY ONE! YOU NEED ONE!!

I was skeptical about getting these for awhile but I see a lot of pros using aquarium plants for mini dios so I figured I would give it a shot.  Plus its 20 4" plants for $10 on the Bay of e so its worth the investment.

My burrows and badgers order arrived today, the otter pirate and the fox mage. Beautiful as usual!

 

Also received the baby clothes pattern I ordered:

Like I said, it's perfect. Three different sleeves, leggings, and bibs.

That pirate has been tempting me... Keeps saying "thirty quid and it's free shipping!" and "buy some of us, especially the foxes and otters alongside that minotaur, you know you want the company..."

Oh, you definitely want them. They're beautifully sculpted and cast. And the otter pirate is just too menacing to pass up!

 

ETA: plus, they ship them in a nice little plastic box. Love those little boxes.
