The disappearing Drow Mini

OK,

 

My Drow has disappeared, I bought a new one just so I could use the painting tips, how to's and help provided by Anne, PM, DKS and the great artists that responded to my previous posting.

 

Now, I had just finished sanding and priming Doorva 3004, and this morning she is AWOL. I have interrogated my collection of unpainted folks, and they are too tight lipped...

 

Now its time to question my 2.75 cats... The usual suspects...

That's a bit of a Cat-butt-trophy. You may have to try the Kitty litter tray (yeuk!!)

 

The evening cleansing/scoop/escavation of the cat boxes meet with negative results for buried treasure (at least for a Drow). Although the cats were happy, they still did not provide any information.

 

After the initial interrogations, I was able to rule out the gray tabby, she was in bed with the wife, who vouched for her alibi...

 

Down to 1.75 cats, they are both orange so I will have to be a bit tricky to break the gang-bond on the Or'ange Tiger Faction.

 

It may be time to use drugs to establish a tighter repore with the devious felines...

I find Russian roulette with a water pistol truly terrifies a cat in a corner.

 

Had a little trouble with a big ginger tom using my kids play area as a cat litter tray. I just have to walk out the backyard with a supersoaker and he bolts for the fence. (It was the RSPCA that told me to use it. Better than some gits that use air-rifles!!)

 

Or you could give one a mouse toy and not the other. Then the one without a toy will rat on his mate!!

 

But have you thought that perhaps the drow has gone to ground and found a nice dark hole to hide in or to hunt miniature beasties??

There's a reason for dual-wielding scimitars: One is used for clearing a path through old potato chips and the other gives +2 against dust bunnies.

 

Good luck finding your mini. I finally found one that has been missing since before R-Con. It was buried under the crud on Aryanun's computer desk. Hopefully yours won't take as long.

Do you have any unpainted goblins? If so, it is only a matter of time before at least one of them claims responsibility for the crime. Do not make the mistake of believing that such a confession makes the case closed. Goblins, like most other terrorist orgainzations, will take credit for anything if it will get them on the nine o'clock news.

No tricksee goblins or dastardly orcs, but I have 2 rogues (M&F), 3 skeletons with chains, an amazon, a female mage, 2 barrow rats, 2 elven warriors, 4 previously painted drow (1 i found broken on the floor-failed escape attempt and left for dead by its unpainted partner), a succubus, a skeletal horse and lich, another lich on foot, and a monk from the LtP kit.

 

Except for the painted drow, the others are all primed white and are waiting impatiently to be painted or finished. It seems they feel impowered with a little pigment.

 

A search of the floor provided no leads (except for the missing arm of the broken drow).

 

"Spaz" my "Whole" orange cat has promied to provide infomation on Peg, "the three-quarters Cat," in exchange for steamed shrimp, but I know he'll lie and claim to know where Jimmy Hoffa is buried for some shrimp or catnip.

 

I may have to call Mulder & Scully or CSI NY to find him. Maybe Dionne Warwick and her psychic network (or shouldn't they call me about it if they were really psychic?)

 

As a last resort, and I mean last resort, I will turn off all the lights and walk around bare-foot...

So you say you don't have goblins? I hate to tell you, but nobody ever really thinks they have a goblin problem until they wake up one morning to find their icebox completely devoid of green cheese, hundreds of nasty little noseprints on the TV screen, and goblin-sign in the cookie jar.

 

You may not see any goblins, but it might be a wise precaution to pop some goblin-fogger just the same.... or buy a watch-ogre.

I made a deal with Lunk, my gangsta vampiric goblin sorcerer, that if I moved him to the front of the cue he would in turn keep his boyz in check. Plus i have the elves and succubus. Additionally I had my semi-annual exterminator sweep the house just last month. No signs of WDI or other infestation.

 

Thanks for looking out, those were good suggestions to keep in mind. I may have to break out the ogres or the Hill giant on steroids to run rough-shod over the group...

Good luck with finding it, I hope you do! One of my cats is a kleptomaniac when it comes to unpainted miniatures. Favorite places included food dishes, water dishes, litter boxes, *inside* furniture especially the couch (how she managed that with attached slip covers on it to prevent that I have no idea), inside clothes inside closets, shoes and under furniture. If your kitties are responsible, I wouldn't rule out any hiding place no matter how unlikely or "cat-proof"!
