So, you need a 28mm body bag?

 

 

 

Go to Michael's and Walmart or whereever, buy some glue, and all the size grades of craft sticks, About $20 bucks worth. I bet you could be "done building ship!" before the KS version arrives.

Or you can check the Micro-Mark catalog and see if any of their ship offerings lights up the idea bulb.

So there are Nolzur's flumphs. That was kind of a surprise.

 

I was also surprised to find they've already released a ship about the size of the Sophie's Choice. Kinda wondering if I should get one of them instead of a second one on the KS (though I clearly should not get any more at all lol, wtf am I even going to do with these).

There's also this thing image.png

Also about the same size.

I'm enjoying watching Reaper Toolbox with Anne. Currently watching/listening to her work on the pack turtle. Episode 2 is doing leather, which is something that I've needed to work on, and some of her suggestions even at the start are super helpful.

It is.

They have gone beyond just being a toy store for tool junkies to providing the hard core stuff for hobbyists in multiple areas.

They have evidently discovered that there is money to be made from Geek Culture because some of their newest offerings are very geeky in nature.

A lot of the stuff on that store is way overpriced, though. 

Crocodile tongs ('ear polypus' in their catalog) are probably 2x what you'll pay any other place.

The same with Hemostats.  

 

I expect a lot of other items also suffers that way.

Agreed.

Over the years I've found that to be more or less standard practice for most of the catalog based merchandisers who offer more than one companies line.

I have been enjoying her show, too.  I wish it wasn't smack in the middle of my day. I missed the pack turtle episode(s) and plan to get to the uploaded version "soon".  I have a pack turtle around here somewhere.  Still trying to get organized after the basement remodel. I spent much of today just looking for brushes.

I spent most of today watching bloopers and gag reels from the various Marvel movies on YouTube.

Not terribly productive, but I spent a fair bit of time laughing, so that's good, IMO.

Yeah. I miss a lot of them, on the other hand, since I'm working from home, a lot of time I can just load it up on my phone, and keep half an eye on it while I work.

 

Dinner, then D&D!

Any and all twitch streams before 1pm EST happen while I'm asleep. As of two weeks from now, any and all twitch streams that happen at a reasonable time will happen while I'm on my way to work or at work where I'm trapped behind the biggest "LOL NO"s you can imagine. Blocked websites, passive signal dampening, and of course cell phone use being a punishable offense now (three times and you're fired no exceptions not even if someone's died on the floor). I won't be renewing my sub for that reason, because I'll have no ability to catch steams anymore.

I think he has about 10,000 points of undead, unpainted. ::o:

 

He used to sell units online, and stopped about eight years ago, when somebody SHOOK HIS WORLD! :winkthumbs:

 

I tried Warhammer, and hated it, but I like Kings of War just fine. No complications for the sake of complications.

 

I've been thinking the rules would work for big stompy robots with no real changes. (I like big stompy robots. ::P: )

BATTLETECH!!!!!

Brine or salt was NOT on the allowed ingredients list.

The sad realization that tomorrow is Monday... *sigh*

 

Okay, time to (try to) walk the beasts. We'll see if we can make it to the pee spot before any fireworks go off.

I noticed they had a section for folk engaged in the Cosplay hobby no less. 


Edit: And I escaped without making a purchase . . . Go me (?)
