  1. When you get an STL, and decide you need to do it up as Conan. Not Conan the Barbarian. Conan O'Brien. The Auld Grump
  2. I'd forgotten about that one. Looks like it hasn't been updated since the last time I looked at it, wayback in 2016, or so. It's a beautiful build. Though my favorite remains the Franklin & South Manchester - which I have seen in person. (It is MORE impressive seen live.) Gods, I'm old enough that now I'm wondering if George Sellios is still alive. *EDIT* George Sellios and his F&SM are why my Mordheim buildings are so big - so that the city dwarfs the warbands struggling in the runed streets. The Auld Grump
  3. Another friend did a layout for Lake Woebegone, Minnesota. There was an amazing number of decals for the fictious products 'advertised on 'A Prarie Home Companion'. The Auld Grump - Ralph's Pretty Good Grocery was one of the shops.
  4. Tonight, for the first time, my Robot Legions faced off against the Alien Hives. I... got Zerged. I should have maintained a supported retreat. But... I let her get too close. Jenny is an arachnophobe. Playing Alien Hives she harnessed her fear to devastating effect. Her Grunts swarmed me. The Auld Grump
  5. Back in... 1991(?) a friend of mine who did S gauge railroad modeling picked up a bunch of S gauge deep ones, and modeled the Innsmouth branch of the B&M railroad. Reviresco for the figures, I think. Both cardstock models for the boats as well as metal for the fishmen from the same company, don't know if Reviresco is still around. The Auld Grump
  6. One of our players just sent us a link to a porn comic on Deviant Art, which had has a D&D game going on - here is a clean part of the comic... He looks... familiar.... Something tells me that the artist really is a gamer.... The Auld Grump
  7. A bit World of Warcraftish, but very nice. Megan is off to a bridal shower... I hope she brought a strong umbrella. The Auld Grump
  8. You are quite correct. The Auld Grump Pretty much - though they are available separately. We've actually started printing and using the 'official' faction game aids - measuring widgets, objective counters, everything but the dice. The Auld Grump
  9. Went to hear Postmodern Jukebox tonight. Great concert, but entirely new faces except for Scott Bradlee. On a different note - I dreamed that I was running Fallout: Great Lakes - the PCs were in a pigboat, for some reason. (The inside of which looked just plain nasty.) Pirates were definitely involved..... But I'm not sure if it was raiders or the PCs..... The Auld Grump - I saw one of the last remaining pigboats, when it was taken through the canals in Cambridge Mass.. Sadly, in spite of a successful fundraiser, the ship was scrapped.
  10. A sheet of printer paper. The cardstock that they included with the Saturn was way too thick, and caused print failures. The Auld Grump
  11. Superman, you're a mean drunk... (Haven't thought of that joke in a long time.) There is no free Dropkick Murphys concert tomorrow, so we are listening to last year's - the one we were at live. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lioiwO6T7y8 (And where I learned that neither Megan nor her mum have ever seen the musical Carousel.) Just us, this time - no big family gathering. The Auld Grump Bomb Squad tee shirt - If You See Me Running, Try To Keep Up. One year my high school chem lab had found that someone had made nitroglycerin. By the the time the bomb squad showed up, the teacher had put a wick in it and burned it away. (Not when I was in the class - this was back before I even went to that school.) Yes, it worked - but I always thought that it would have been wiser to, you know, let the bomb squad do what bomb squads do, eh? If I am remembering correctly, his name was Mr. Fink. The Auld Grump *EDIT* Then again, way back when, I was at a farm where they made ANFO for stumping.
  12. We watched an episode of Velma, hoping that the negative feedback was overblown. It really wasn't. How could they have screwed up such a simple concept so thoroughly? The Auld Grump - Velma was my favorite character on Scooby Doo.

  14. We are going to Postmodern Jukebox on the 15th. A little closer to Megan's birthday we are going to Jukebox the Ghost.... (Warning - F Bomb.) I am sensing a theme there... put another dime in the record machine. The Auld Grump - a band that I had never heard of until I went looking for something... birthdayish?
  15. Age of Fantasy - the One Page Rules spin on Age of Stockholders by GW. The army books and rules are free, so it it is worth taking a look. We have been playing a weekly game - pretty well ballanced, fast, and minis agnostic. Lately some of the other STL Patreons have been filling niches and even providing stats for the game. OPR is kind of the Anti-GW - they play nicely with others. Looking at the base of the OPR Ratman Titan.... the Ratmen really aren't exactly the same as the skaven.... I will name the one behind the counter Trappin' Me Own Leg Dibbler. The Auld Grump
  16. My question is... how did it get the WarmaHordes troll into that pitcher, without opposable thumbs? The Auld Grump Being licked to death - count the number of lickety-licks per second... it's insane. The pitties that I have met have been sweethearts. The Auld Grump
  17. Did you also get the trolls in their Welcome Box? They are hoop froods. No tails, but of all the things to add, with greenstuff and wire, tails are the easiest. The Auld Grump
  18. Artisan Guild have 'orr'ugs' coming out next month - That... looks pretty much like a classic hobble gobble to me. The Auld Grump
  19. That may be my fault - Miniatures Market listed a quantity of 1. I ordered it. The Auld Grump
  20. I think that these might handle the Norse Orc problem for Megan's game, if/when. https://youtu.be/ED0x3-wYRmg The Auld Grump
  21. Oddly enough, that is one of the more accurate models for the sheer volume of the exhaust.... The Auld Grump
  22. Am I allowed to update my software first? I'm still running on the Beta. The Auld Grump
  23. WizKids prices have gone a bit nuts... I wonder if WotC went and increased their license fees? The Auld Grump - which reminds me, I need to see if I can still get the outhouse mimic...
  24. A crowdfunder on MMF - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bv0ndB4_d1Y&t=9s *WARNING!* Toxic levels of adorable! It's too late for us, save yourselves! Yeah, we have young players, and ideas for gifts.... And Brigid might like Weeble scaled models of some of those. The Auld Grump
