    28th: Last Question for February:

    (Also still looking for a quistor for next month, feel free to join up!) 


    What dumb accomplishment are you most proud of?


    Achieving a "Best in show" award at a small painting competition which was voted for by members of the public.

    February 26th Question of the Day:


    Who was your favorite teacher in school and why?


    Jill Tweedie, my History teacher for my last 3 years of secondary school. Only 5'3", but fierce enough to keep any class in order.


    She didn't teach me mere facts. She taught me how to study, and then get what I had learnt down in a coherent form on paper. How to construct an argument so that you will convince your reader. (And thus how to demolish an opponents case.)


     This made me a complete pain in the behind to my other teachers as I practised showing up the fallacies in whatever they were teaching, But it won me several debating prizes in my last year, and a rapt audience whenever I got up to speak.

    February 27th Question of the Day


    Furry, scaley or feathery friends - Show us a picture of your family member.  Past or current is fine.



    I still miss this lad:



    And my wife was so cut up at his passing that she refuses to consider a replacement.

    Oh and ManvsMini: You'd better lay in a good supply of food, Prince Otto is reputed to have had a gargantuan appetite.

    Hmm... Kickstarter recommended a nifty looking solo journaling RPG that I'm very tempted to throw some money at, but I'm not sure it's something I'd really be interested in doing.


    Going to have to give it some thought, and read up on what journaling RPG's actually are!



    Link please! (Or add to the relevant page...)

  5. Just had power restored, Eunice blacked us out midday on Friday. No structural damage to the house, but the garden looks like a bomb-site and I think the ducks may need psycho-therapy.

    So no lights, heating or cooking, 2 days of tinned soup on our old camping stove.

    Tried to drive out of the farm to the next village today and was glad I'd brought the chainsaw with me:


    Trickiest thing of all? With absolutely no source of amusement once the sun went down, wife and I had to spend the evenings TALKING TO EACH OTHER!!

    The complexity and price of Lego Sets appears to rise as a square function of the age of both the customer and the company.


    Who remembers Erector Sets where stuff was held together with nuts and bolts.

    None of this easy peasy snap together stuff.


    Same here with Meccano. It was a big push towards making me decide to be an engineer.

    February 14th Question of the Day:


    It's Valentine's Day, yah the "Day of Love", aka Made for Hallmark Channel Day, American Greetings Day etc etc. Will you celebrate the day with a significant other,  or by yourself?


    Yes, another happy day with my wonderful wife.


    Celebrated by butchering a lamb and having liver and bacon (with onion gravy, very thick) for dinner.

    3D printing makes bribery a very effective means of recruiting players - an entire ten person crew is about one or two dollars to print.... (Join ussss! Join ussss! :devil: )


    Print Minis has some excellent packs to use with StarGrave....

    Megan found a... PG 13 model of a cryo chamber to go with this set.

    (Spoilered because nudity - even though it is already censored.)

    I think that the fungi covered pod might be Patient Zero.

    (I almost forgot + I've got a game to run in less then an hour! Quickie, but this a simple one.)


    Show us a mini you've painted recently!!



    Good luck with the game

    Pleased with this one, although it isn't a very original colour scheme.
