  1. Much like @Mad Jack, I can relate. I've definitely had those thoughts about the snow plow driver. I'm glad that he had such excellent foresight!
  2. I forgot to ask in my previous post: @Glitterwolf, or anyone who knows/has an opinion: How is that Army Painter sealer compared to Testors dull coat?
  3. Hand made soft pretzels and various specialty mustards as referenced in the acquisitions thread, a selection of summer sausages and cheeses from Swiss Colony, crackers, and various other finger food/snack type items.
  4. Both versions are absolutely fantastic!! I really like the abandoned house version, you did a great job of making the house seamlessly fit onto the base.
  5. For Christmas, I got a Reaper gift certificate, an Amazon gift certificate, a new electric razor, and a new pair of moccasins. There was also some fresh handmade soft pretzels with various specialty mustards, and a red velvet cake from a local mom and pop bakery. The cake is already gone as are about a quarter of the pretzels. The rest of the pretzels are going to be had as part of our finger food/party snack tray that we'll have on New Years Eve.
  6. I've got some of both of those brands, too. I thought I heard that Testor's Model Master had also gotten the axe, but a quick check of their website says otherwise. They have cut down on the number of colors, though. No. It just doesn't make me think death metal at all. Honestly, with the funky spelling, it makes me think of just about anything other than metal. Obituary, Six Feet Under, Suffocation are all good names (and already being used) for a death metal band. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- In other news, apparently I have done something to annoy the squirrels in my neighborhood. I just took the recycling outside and one squirrel sat up about 10 feet up up in my tree and just chattered at me the whole time I was outside.
  7. Yes, I've still got a bunch of those, too. Yeah, we have. It's been a while since I've actually been inside a hobby shop that sells scale models; I wonder what they have for paints?
  8. Yes, a bunch of green stuff rocks that were in a plastic storage tub with some tools. Yes. I could write up a list that take an hour to read, but for now, we'll go with the 22 caliber pellets I was looking for that caused me to find the green stuff rocks. I use the pellets as paint agitators.
  9. Yeah like I said, I'm still pretty upset that Polly-S got canned by the maker. Since it stopped being made in 2013, that makes every bottle I own at least 8 years old. I know for a fact that they're all older than that, though. I gave all of my hobby paints to my dad when I joined the Navy in 1990, because I didn't want them to 'go bad' if I wasn't using them. I got some of those same paints back when he passed away in 2008. I wasn't always as careful with paint as I am now, and the fact that some of my childhood paints are still viable is pretty darn impressive, at least to me. And I like that smell. Reminds me of being a kid again and painting stuff with my dad.
  10. Apparently, I have a new hobby: money laundering. I just found $7 in the washing machine when I was emptying it into the dryer.
  11. Sort of? This may or may not count... Way back on my first ship in the Navy, there was about 6 of us that were playing Battletech pretty heavily. After playing random one off battles against one another started to get a bit boring, I came up with an idea for a campaign. Everyone involved had some input and we did a lot of tweaking, but after a little while we came up with a simple system that worked, and was a lot of fun. It never had a name.
  12. It needs a 'no swimming' sign. Good work on it!
  13. Nice work. Also, it's pretty cool seeing the original version along with the newest version.
  14. Well hello, stranger! Good to see you back again. I hope all is well and you had a Merry Christmas.
  15. That's an excellent example of the way to keep a positive attitude about things, @Corsair!
