Well, you would never have to worry about me stealing your jelly bellys.... ::D:

 

 See, I used to spend all day at the cart using the plastic rake to skillfully fish out the popcorn-flavored ones and munch on them when my 25-yr-old self wasn't flirting with the middle-aged ladies in the Disney store across from our cart.... So when I found out you could order 5lb. bags of individual flavors, I jumped on it - they lasted me almost a month.

I guess I can use the time, to see if I can remember where some minis I picked up in Nov or Dec for an upcoming "Rookery setting AL" game for my Weds players. You'd think a Roper miniature (whether it's a Reaper or Wizkids) would be easy to spot!

 

I was able to find everything but 1 miniature, that being a Nolzur's pack with the winter eladrin figure in it. I mean eladrin are just fey-'er" elves, you can use elves, but I liked the look of that mini & since I can't find that darn thing, I guess I need to place an online order with Gnomish Bazaar. One company I know will get it to me way before next Weds night.

 

Funny thing about this was most of the figures were in the "special place" for upcoming games, I just for some reason didn't put the Ropers in there nor the 2 packs of eladrin figures from Nolzur's. At least I found most of it.

Thank you for letting people that don't watch the show know what's going on. Odd that there is no VIP ticket this year. Hmmmm

 

 

Something about them not serving the purpose of letting a few VIPs have early access to class tickets 'cause everyone was buying the VIP tickets.  So classes are back to being first-come-first-served, BUT if you have it in your cart while you are selecting classes it can't be bought by someone else who checks out before you.  

 

I'm waiting to see if we have a game tomorrow. There's always that one person who doesn't check or answer email until the last minute.....

As I delve more into the modular N-scale world, I'm finding my idea of adding futuristic/fantastic stuff to my modules isn't really that unique of an idea.  I've found tons of photos of modules with toy dinosaurs, crashed UFOs, Star Wars ships & figures,  Gundam robots, War of the Worlds ships & figures, HG Wells Time machine, even WH40k models - heck, I even found a module that was Barbie and Ken as if they were operating a model railroad running through their living room. 

The only unique thing about my idea right now appears to be the use of CAV models specifically.  

 

ETA; Oh, and Tardis & The Doctor.   I can't believe I forgot that one. It's surprising the number of modules that appear otherwise "normal" that have a little blue police box tucked somewhere. 

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.

Here is a serious Arkham model railroad Lovecraft railroad

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

Can't find an obituary so I am guessing he is still alive.

Here's a link to part one of a six part tour of the F&SM 2022 Open House.

 There's a thread over on ENWorld asking for names for alcohol and fantasy drinks to use in D&D...

 

Although I've only made mead a couple times in my life so far, this is the label I put on each bottle...

I have used "Wolf Whiz Ale" in several games over the years. Their motto is "It's in the Water" 😁😛

Why do the last 30 minutes of the workday feel like they're taking 6 hours?

 


Mmm…. cause it took me six hours to stop working? I was told that an automated bill of materials was impossible for a drawing I took over. It wasn’t. I got it to work. But then everything else that the people before me have done worked against me from fully implementing that automation. So gave up and reverted to dumb plain notes. But I am using the work I did do to identify parts. 
 

Really should work the weekend some and hope I don’t forget like last weekend.
