Lots of goodies the past couple days:

 

Reaper order

VEX parts

RPR-0029 Quick connect coupler.

 

Cheap airbrush for clear coats. I decided to ditch the Harbor Frieght branded one for this one.

Just a update on this one. The Vex coupler is a perfect size for this airbrush, so I'll be ordering anther coupler so each airbrush I own has it's own. It's funny how light this airbrush is compared to the VEX, but then again, I expected it as this is a mass produced Chinese airbrush that I got from a USA ebay seller. The VEX is a premium airbrush made by a airbrush company here in the USA. (also price). Still it should work for what I'll use it for.

I have one of those. 

(I don't use it, though. Takes up too much room on my desk... )

 

Eh?  Just how small is your desk?  The pallet is slightly smaller than a standard paperback book...

So after last week's Legion game, was chatting with one of the owners at the FLGS, and got on the topic of hard to get units (Asmodee has been TERRIBLE about getting products everywhere and restocks for popular units can take....well, we don't know how long....I'll let you know when Death Troopers are actually availably here (at least 10 months and counting)) and what was actually available, and what I was looking for, an so on.  The result of which was this:

So 3 more CIS specialists (mostly for the repair droid, but the T-series may come in very handy as well), a 2nd TX-130 Saber tank for my eventual Clone army, and FINALLY the 2 Shoretroopers boxes I've been trying to get for as long as I've been trying to get more Death Troopers.

 

 

I SO need to get painting......

Justin Trudeau bought me a new bed. Apparently, I'm an essential worker and got a big, fat bonus. It's a queen, which is massive for one girl and her cat. The cat could care less about the cool flannel sheets with assorted dog breeds I picked out. The frame has a head that goes up and down, which is the best thing ever, because it's essentially a giant couch and perfect for reading in bed. Milo has made a cat nest between the pillows, where he is virtually invisible to my dog. For her part, my dog has discovered she fits under the bed again without getting stuck and mom having to left up the frame to get her out. She loves to go under it, probably denning instinct. Last night we had fish for supper, which she loves, but she crawled under the bed and farted. I was like, "Seriously?!" and all I could see was this black tail thumping happily.

I should ask my boss how that argument went for our HR department... And if I qualified for it. 

 

Not gonna lie, it sure would be nice to get such a lovely payment...  But the big issue is whether or not I would qualify for the whole x amount of working hours part, and if vacation hours count in such or not. 

 

...And if it would screw up my EI, or if it sits and waits until work rehires me from the temporary layoff.

Placed a large order for model kits with Hobby Lobby this afternoon. They got rid of the 40% coupon, but all kits are 40% off + free shipping over $50, so hey what the hell. I can always throw them into the model stash. I'll update this post when I receive the kits. I also pre-ordered Van Richten's Guide to Ravenloft on D&D Beyond thanks to a 25% sale they have going on right now.

Received my order from Sunward Hobbies, got some extras that I wanted to try out. Got Tamiya extra thin plastic cement, I already have the quick-setting version and the applicator is an absolute marvel to use. I got some of the regular stuff for times when I need a slower setting glue, and a second bottle to cut up sprues and toss into it to make a sprue goo that can be used as a kind of glue or to fill in gaps for GW figures. Also got some Tamiya white putty to try out on gap filling as well. Finally, I got a Mr.Hobby Mr. Almighty clip holder to use for holding parts of my figures, since I paint with sub-assemblies and this will help me keep them steady without having to resort to gluing them to pins.

Please keep in mind that the clips are not fed during shipping, and may be voracious when you open the package.

Got shipping notification my Yujiao Land Zaku II Commander resin conversion kit has shipped.

Yeah, I'm definitely looking forward to it, to say the least.  Still debating if it'll be the first resin kit I do or not though, since I have two others waiting to see the desk.  Sadly the kit doesn't come with the metal details like the thrusters and power hoses, but I have a set of those on hand already.  Mine's definitely not going to be painted red though - purple and blues are a lot more likely.

 Picked up seasons one and two of Beauty and the Beast on dvd... Linda Hamilton and Ron Perlman. Almost afraid to see how dated it's gotten over the years, lol...

 

 

I picked up the boxset of that for my housemate a few Christmas's ago.

Too romancified for me, but she enjoyed it.

I got my Amazon order of a Nolzur's Yuan-Ti Adventurers and the second series of Fantasy Creatures from SCS Direct today, along with my Reaper LTP kits and also another bottle of gray primer and the freebie minis.
Neat that they've already started phasing out the minis in the LTP sets with Bones USA ones, though I only got them for the Core Skills one.

Picked up a couple stls yesterday: One I have no idea how it came to be, but I'm thinking it was a email:

 

Rocket Pig Games:

Goat Fiend

720X720-store-thumbnail-goatfiend.jpg

 

Initially, he's freakin huge!!!! Luckily, you can resize. He'll make a excellent Balezau for the Saturday game in 2 weeks.

 

Cast N Play: Faythe

 

Pretty sure I have her already or if she is next month in CnP Patreon, I have no idea. I just liked the sculpt.

Package all the way from the USA?  

 

I wonder who that could be from...   

 

A set of 12 colours from a 'virtual expo',

a set of 3 'Plasma' colours, 

A foldup photo backdrop, 

and half a dozen minis. 

 

Can't imagine who that is from. And the label on the package had a new label stuck over the sender info, too...
