It's great having options when assembling minis, but when you end up with sprues 2/3's full of unused bits, it starts feeling like a bit of a waste.

 

If any kit-bashers out there would like a pile of weird little weapons let me know.

Clip them off. And begin building a bitz box (?)

Get a box like that. ^^ But use it for bitz instead of beads.  Many, many, many brands of boxes like that. 

 

Or
Send them to @Froggy the Great !!

+1 on both these suggestions, but also: What kinda weird little weapons are we talking about? 👀

Good place to look for boxes like this is any place that sells fishing gear.

If you go to someplace like Cabella's, be prepared to be overwhelmed by the variety of sizes, shapes, and compartment configurations.

And here are a few photos of my goodest boy. I still miss him dearly but it gets a little easier to smile at the photos and memories every day.

 

It said, "German Shepherd mix" on the label, but what I actually had was a black wolf with the biggest heart and goofiest personality.:wub:

Look at the ears on him! He sure looks like an Anubis to me.

I have to ask.  From your initial description I have a hunch the answer is yes, but, just for the sake of argument, could the guy be color blind or should there be enough visual clues to the difference that don't depend on color perception for him to reasonably be able to figure out which one he has?

"Teenage Boys" - - - Mark Twain was right.

GEM

Red vs Blue is the obvious clue - if you're not color blind. But I'm aware of that for various reasons, so I always use other descriptors, like the fact that the blue version is a completely flat face, while the red version has a 3d molded fiberglass facade. Most of the time I ask "Do you have the doors with the fiberglass?" and that is all it takes to get the correct answer.

I used to save my bitz, but I'm not one of life's modders and found little use for them, nowadays I just throw them away.

But there's so much this time, I thought I'd see if anyone else wanted them.

They're from Kingdom Death so it's a mix of regular but stylised ones, cobbled together organic-looking ones and unusual ones like a big hammer covered in fingers and a battle-saxophone.

I can send you some pictures if you're interested.

And this is exactly why I don't fear AI taking over my job anytime soon. 
 

Because the most obvious application for it would be these horrible voice recognition automated answering systems, and I have yet to run into any entity that has one that can figure out what people want. without pissing them off first. 
 

I hope that's per hour, and not per pay check. 

So the guy I was dealing with the other day who got broken into and couldn't properly describe which unit he had? Yeah, well, now he has an intermittent problem with a different piece of equipment, and I'm having trouble getting any workable troubleshooting data out of him.  Furthermore, after his inability to figure out if he had blue or red keypads, I'm not sure I trust any data he has given me. 

To make matters worse, the car wash down the road from him in the next town over got broken into as well.   The broccoli head thieves have now managed to do $15k worth of damage, while their total take in cash is estimated at $500.   Based on camera footage, it appears to be a couple of teenage boys.   If they get caught, they're looking at serious felonies. 

I did alert my other two sites in the area, just in case the thieves widen out their circle.  Those sites are about 45 miles away - far enough they may not get hit, but still close enough that I felt they should be on alert. 

I hate all the voice speech things. I hate them all. Hate.

And most shift premiums are per hour, not per diem.

 

Good luck getting the police to pop those kids. I've got a fun story below...

I find Ross to be the best place to find things like this. They're usually the exact same you find it hobby shops and tool shops, but about a third of the price. You just might have to go hunting and stop by regularly.

 

Now, for a story about the police and failure. Okay. I don't know if I wrote about this back when it happened, but back in July, one of our guys was hit in the head with a stick while trying to move a guy off of a building. One of the (outgoing) bosses was there, helping out, and maced the dude. He's popped up here and there since then, and we've called the police, but there's been no arrests. We once called and waited 12 hours to get them to come out and arrest him, but by the time they designed to grace us with their presence, he had woken up and left.

Tonight, one of my bosses (the one who recently started getting into minis, I wrote about him yesterday, I think?) went out to remove someone from another building. And it was him. Since we didn't have a good shot of the guy, and it was a different spot in the same area, it didn't click that it was him right away. Plus, he's been hiding from us for a few weeks now. Anyway, boss rolls up, asks the guy to leave and... This guy was not having it. But you know what he did have? A strong walking stick. My boss got clipped in the elbow and absolutely smacked in the leg. The bruise was the size of his knee, no joke. He also busted the truck's front windshield. And you know what he got charged with? Assault IV. The lowest level of assault, a misdemeanor. And, do you want to know the best part? He's back out on the streets. Supposed be monitored by the Sheriff's Office while out on the streets but that program was overloaded before the pandemic. Basically, he got away with it. Even if we can catch him again, they'll just let him go again.

I can't wait to see this guy on the news because he's done something very bad... <_<
