Department of Acquisitions and Enablement, the Second


Recommended Posts

Finally broke down and bought the last (current) expansions for Lord of the Rings: Online. Unfortunately, haven't been able to do anything with minis as I had to do some repair work on the basement steps when some things happened that have built up.

I was heavy into LOTRO. I kinda wish I was playing again, but alas I'd be so behind right now. I think Rohan was the last expansion to come out.

Why I haven't bought any minis this month...

Orion Spaceprobe 130ST.  Wide field 5" newtonian reflector telescope on an equatorial mount.  Of course, the weather tonight is cloudy, then some more clouds, but that's par for new telescope day I'm told.

Soooo much envy, I hope you get to take it for a spin soon!

It's still fun to play and has a pretty good free to play model. They're through the majority of the LotR story baring some epilogue, but are moving through other events with the current parts being moving on Gundabad.

 

As long as you have the expansions, you can come and go as you want, only thing you end up needing to pay a sub for is pvmp and unlocking swift stables (Any character you've played on while ViP keeps it).

I'm a lifetime subscriber. :lol:

 

I don't think I'd have as much fun these days + I've got other things I should be devoting my time to anyways these days.

Went to the hobby shop, so tempted to buy some shiny new models but got a bottle of Corvus Black. Third of the new paints I got this week, Apothecary White and Warplock Bronze. 

 

Good thing I didn't buy the miniatures with my pre-order of the Lumineth coming on Saturday, I wouldn't have survived the weekend. 🤪

I took it out last night despite the clouds.  A few breaks in the clouds were enough to get it focused in and verify that it worked but they didn't stay still long enough to really find anything other than Altinak. I think I was able to track over to θ Orionis, but the seeing was really bad and too much light reflecting off the clouds so I couldn't distinguish anything interesting.

I've been wasting too much time in LOTRO lately.  The kin I found runs slow leveling groups so my main is just into Mordor.  I guess eventually I'll have to get that last expansion.

Which basically means just the expansions...and depending upon what you've spent on a character, you probably have the points to just buy most of them

I may have purchased a few decals for my gunpla kits, as well as a nice resin sniper rifle. 

 

Bafflingly though, I ordered it to my private warehouse and they shipped it out to me instead. 

 

On the plus side though, I'm about to have decals for my Gunner Zaku Warriors (got two decal sets), both Zakus (one for Char's, and one for the grunts), decals for my RG Mk II Titans, and yeah, a nice sniper rifle from Evo Studio.

Nothing too exciting, but of course I have a personal policy, if I'm at the game store, I'm gonna buy something.

 

I bought this before the AL game tonight:

Mainly for the Satyr, as I can't print out the one I really wanted. Depending on how far they get this Saturday, it may see action next week!

Had I not bought a similar figure I would have gone with this guy.

A package from France?  Its a flat box so it's  not a mini.  What could it be....
