  1. Actual space and a glass display cabinet that I could put my models on without collecting too much dust. I bought a jet bike from a 3rd party years ago. The bike is awesome. The rider, not so much. I didn't convert much back then, and I regretted the purchase for years. Eventually I lost it in a move, thus regretting the purchase permanently.
  2. Sturgis follows Ma'alik's lead with Greyson's warning. "Hopefully we pass unscathed. But that hasn't seemed our luck, has it?"
  3. Thank you all for funneling money into my great Empire. Serious note, finishing them up tonight. EDIT: Done in less than an hour. Gotta love waiting for someone who is not me to provide their W-2. But it's done and I can relax now. Sadly, I didn't use my favorite accountant this year, but he's about to retire, and his wife is in poor health. They are such wonderful people, I'm very sad. I've known them for 14 years.
  4. I found a reasonably priced set of the early Warhammer Elven 8-pack of plastic archers, unpainted and unsprued. Reasonably priced as in $8. I was pretty happy with that.
  5. Does Greyson warn the party?
  6. Friday the 13th? Unlucky? NO! It's a day to watch Nosferatu and Nightmare on Elm St. (the original). I alternate. I have never owned a black cat. They hate competition for that rampant level of Evil.
  7. I don't have any in my paint bottles, sadly. I would probably prefer that. Yes to both. I love maps of all kinds.
  8. The plague hit hard near Nessus. I'm up to something like 50 some odd people if you include acquaintances. If you only include inner circle and trusted lieutenants, 8.
  9. Two. Both varations on glowing eyes. The first one was Green Spawn eyes, the current ones are Richard's from Looking For Group. It reminds me to lighten up. He doesn't look nuts at all. He looks like he's dealt with the rest of the world, for all 36 hours, all within 60 seconds. He looks downright sane given the circumstances! And think of the creative bursts that one can garner from that! No wonder your world is so magnificent!
  10. Sturgis keeps light cast on his heavy mace. And looks around the pit as well as into the pit. He is concerned with the dangers we have already faced and the potential of something grabbing us from the pit. (Roll: 1d20+3, result is 11+3, 14 total).
  11. Emperor. But I will not have my minions dressed as German Troops from the 1930's and 1940's, Roman Legionnaires, or even the great Khan's troops. They were eventually defeated and I want my legions of Terror to have better morale than that. In all seriousness, I would like an enlightened empire, something akin to a parliament, with the Emperor able to veto some of the more egregarious crap that is not in the people's interests. And when the Parliament decides to try to overthrow the Emperor, they meet the legions of terror. I found employment and it is exactly what I want to do. I actually turned down a job that was more lucrative, but the hours were horrendous and meant that I would have lost the more important thing, time with my children. I also scheduled an annual health exam for reviewing my anxiety med. I'm almost a year out from my big breakdown.
  12. Nope. Not once. I saw some great RickRolls, immediately identified them, and smiled as others fell for the trap.
  13. That makes perfect sense. I'm not as familiar with 5e Tieflings, so I saw it and went "tiefling, awesome" and it was done. Thank you for making sense out of it for me.
  14. Nicely done! They all fit your intent, and I think you have a knack for getting things done! I will comment on the Tiefling: No one but you will mind the cloven feet. I'm not sure about your overall feelings, but I feel that tieflings should have varied feet and different looks about them, but that comes from years of Planescape on my part.
  15. I would have gone with the latter, given the Pope's smiling nature, I can see him loving a good joke. The irony would be wonderful. Yes. Peep stuffed animals that were as tall as my daughter. I was horrified. Yes. Peep stuffed animals that were as tall as my daughter. I was horrified.
  16. They were colored plastic. 3" of snow by the time they were searching. No way to find them. Death awaits you with Nasty Sharp Pointy Teeth!
  17. You can't tell I shoveled the steps on my front porch. Or find the Easter Eggs in the yard. Mwahahahah! Now THIS is an Easter Egg Hunt! Then again, there was a magnificent (and obvious) RickRoll this morning on my favorite news aggregator. Both knowing it was a RickRoll and the mention of needing mindbleach were beautiful in the same thought. What a time to be alive. I like Glenn's Forecast. I got it early.
  18. I have yet to dissassemble my Patriot 105 (just out of the box, I've been using a siphon feed for priming as I learn airbrushing, thus not touched the 105), and the gap on mine is there as sent from the factory. I'd reach out about backflow from there. The only thing I can think of is if there is paint in the threads, allowing something to flow upwards in the thread because of a gap.
  19. This made my day. I finally took the time to read this all the way through. This was hilarious and fun to read.
  20. *chuckles* "Let us go north, then."
  21. If you were near, I'd help to fix it. I'm handy that way. Replacing the head gasket on my car tomorrow. Listening to the song "Poisoning Pigeons in the Park" with the windows open, singing along merrily at a stoplight.
  22. Live to eat, preferably. I have been in eat to live mode for many years, and it was miserable. After the anxiety diagnosis, slowing down to enjoy something has really been something I focus on, including food. For just calories, I like breakfast food. Cereal, eggs, bagels. Basics with carbs. For the time... how much time are we talking? If I've got a few days and a near endless supply of garden-fresh tomatoes and some dried morels, I will sauce the tomatoes myself, and turn them into a vegetarian pasta sauce with a nutty flavor from the morels. It's delicious and requires NO sugar in the sauce. But, the saucing takes 1-2 days by itself. For comfort foods and fun foods, egg noodles from scratch with fixins (mashed potatoes, baked or fried chicken, depending on who I am cooking for, and fresh, steamed green beans), and then some of the best chocolate cake. Why yes, this is generally what I want for my birthday, why do you ask? I don't want things to keep, I want time around a table together. Proven trustworthiness. Not at all. I would call you a very kind man, Al. I say this from every interaction I've had with you both on these forums and not. 0-Hour Starship Maps & Miniatures & Sonic Battle Racers board game. Yes. That should terrify any FLGS owner given my low threshold for buying things.
  23. Sturgis looks to the others, "Looks like we only have one door to make sure nothing else sneaks up behind us, eh?"
  24. I do name them and talk to them. Especially computers, which I threaten with a 20-pound sledgehammer which I have coined the Hammer of Fixing. I also have a 3-foot-long crowbar named Bobo, a Sword named "Big Blue," a dagger named the Italian, and the Roman (they ARE distinct). I name them mostly out of utility, sometimes out of humor. I can say go get the big crowbar (the kids will ask which one), so I say go get Bobo. Computers misbehave, so I have to remind them of the Hammer of Fixing. For work, a foam Thor's hammer with "Hammer of Fixing" in sharpie also works. Part one of the question is Yes. Part two is everything. I have a competition mini due Wednesday, and I've got a bit in the March thread already, but some Derro finally got primed and my other monthly models, along with some models for Curse of the Crimson Throne (I WILL run that game live dangit!). I also have Warmachine and Hordes models, as well as a bunch of other models from Reaper and other manufacturers for other games.
  25. I drive. I drive a 13 year old Ford Rustbucket (tm). I have to replace the head gasket this weekend. Yay Me! I have fewer funny stories but more terrifying stories. I've seen a semi on black ice do a 180, and parallel park between two freshly crashed vehicles on the outer fence of the interstate. The only joke I could think of for that is that those poor poeple needed a change of pants.
