  1. Great paintwork. Fun Fact: The character from The Golden Voyage of Sinbad was played by Tom (Doctor Who) Baker.
  2. The Terry Pratchett fans here might like to know that a collection of his early short stories has been rediscovered. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-64789059
  3. As a kid I once found my budgie head-down in my glass of milk. (He had tried unsuccessfully to land and perch on the rim of the glass.) Fortunately my dad had the presence of mind to fish him out quickly so he didn't drown - the rest of us were too busy laughing.
  4. For this sort of thing I have found that adding some flow aid to your wash in order to reduce surface tension can be helpful in getting it into the holes.
  5. Bumping this because it was just announced that John Motson has died, so I guess the above mini can now be considered a timely tribute. https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/64742833
  6. Add a new dimension to your role-playing or miniature gaming - the third dimension! This box contains 30 sheets of colorful fold-up buildings. Assembly is simple because all the pieces are die-cut and pre-scored; all you need is glue. Also included are three full-color, two-sided mapsheets showing street layouts, plus a 16-page booklet describing how to assemble the buildings and how to modify and reassemble them in new and unusual ways. The pieces in this box are drawn from previous TSR publications, including Castles, Falconmaster, Flames of the Falcon, and the original Cities of Mystery set.
  7. I have vague memories of being taken to visit several castles as a kid. (I guess my parents never found one with a dungeon that could hold me.) The only one I can recall with any certainty is Arundel Castle in West Sussex. I don't have any pics, but Google can show you plenty.
  8. Oh, this brings back memories. I painted one of these around 1987. I like the basing you've done for it.
  9. Holmes. Preferably as played by Jeremy Brett.
  10. Flumphs Are Really Totally Satanic Flumphs Army Ready To Strike Flumphs At Reaper Threaten Security Flumphs Are Running Twitter Secretly
  11. Admittedly it is not likely to be a frequent occurrence, but one might consider the possibility that the animal had swallowed a bag of coins belonging to the last person who tried to kill it.
  12. That's Eredain, Mercenary Wizard. I believe he was originally part of the Warlord line, but it appears he is now only available in Bones.
  13. The goblin is Motty the Goblin Commentator by Impact Miniatures. He appears to be a parody of the (now retired) well-known British football (soccer) commentator John Motson.
  14. Sleep Attack? I know what you're talking about but I can't quite name it. I'm sure there's a german word for it.... I think the term you are looking for is a hypnic jerk [aka hypnagogic jerk].
  15. No contest for me. I'm a big Scooby Doo fan. Never even heard of Speed Racer.
  16. Many years ago, I used to run a Traveller campaign for three players named Andy, Andy and Andy.
  17. A couple of times in the past I have stayed up to watch a lunar eclipse. These days my neighbours' trees have grown so big that I don't get to see much of the sky any more.
  18. Best: A number of good candidates, but on balance I will say Aliens. Worst: Hands-down, Highlander 2.
  19. No, my collection lives wild and free. Most of the time I have no idea what they are getting up to.
  20. It really depends on the details of the technology and the magic. And I'm reminded of the words of Arthur C. Clarke, about sufficiently advanced technology being indistinguishable from magic.
  21. I have always found the appearance of fly agaric to be quite striking and evocative of fantasy/fairytale settings.
