Department of Acquisitions and Enablement, the Second


Recommended Posts

Was thinking I hadn't bought much lately, but I did snag a new bottle of AP Plastic Glue last night. Oh, and I picked up The Wizzkids unpainted Human Paladin pack (90136) last week as a potential mini for my new character for our upcoming campaign (yes, I'm aware I'll be playing virtually....still need a mini!).

But today I did get my second order of yummy low carb cereal from Magic Spoon.  It is such a treat to be able to have a bowl of crunchy, sweet, deliciousness in the evening and having zero affect on my blood sugar....

May have gone a bit overboard, but shipping is slow (was like 7 days just getting across the border) and I wanted to try most of the available flavors before settling on what will be my "regulars".

 

Oh and less exciting, I just got the garage to order a new Stage 1 Exedy race clutch for my car.  Seems the old one is on it's last legs (it lasted about a decade.) and was causing my shift issues when the car got hot.
Seems they've gone up in price in a decade, to just over $1k.  Not sure if that was Cdn or US, but unfortunately I'm guessing US......

Wow, my Wave 2 Battleteck Kickstarter stuff arrived today. Lady C just bypassed shaking her head and eyerolls and went straight to the "Really? You have got to be kidding" look. Anyway the stuff looks great, really pleased with it!

I think next week I will get out my older metal stuff and photograph the new and old mechs next to each other.

I went to one of my local hobby stores and they had some new second hand miniatures. I already painted the ghost and added a sword to the barbarian rider.

They seem to be mostly old grenadiers (barbarian is still sold at Mirliton SG, couldn't find the others)

Nothing impressive, but I got my replacement Hawthorne Krabbe and Poppets from Reaper.

In my original RCon swag, I had the poppets, I had Krabbe's left arm, but not the main body itself.

 

Now I have one Krabbe, two left arms, and six poppets! There some interesting potential with this many minions.

Congrats!  I know how that feeling can be, having technically gone through nine months of it (six temporarily laid off, three actually laid off)

Grabbed a few things at dollar tree again.

 

Needed a new sealable container for greenstuff...my older one fell while I was working with some and stepped on it. I also needed some more of the rather consistent stones they had for some walls.

 

I noticed that one of the Finding Nemo things they had was a shark that looked realistic enough that I'm not even sure would need a paint job beyond a few touchups and adding a base for some more stability. Might go back and grab a couple more of them because they look just right for the smaller sharks.

 

There's also a lot of the wooden plaques that are the right size that you can mount some larger toys for statues, there's a few different shapes of them available and I've got a few of their winged unicorn/alicorn ones that they're sold out of which were paired with a smaller toy one of the right size for use.
