I am crapola at looking after myself, so I am following my friends advice 'treat yourself like you where your own girlfriend'. Huh. Why didn't I think of that?
Well, since the doctor has confined me to stay home in the warm for a week, my meta-girlfriend-self was sooo sweet and treated me to Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower. Wow, she is so awesome! Thanks me. You're welcome me. X
51 minis for $250 bucks, that's actually pricing the minis at around $5 each- plus lots of card and dice and shit I will probably forget about. Why oh why cannot citadel apply this to their main ranges? Even $10 a mini would be... Er... Something.

I will clear my small backlog first before starting it.
Gotta say, if Age of Sigmar contained these minis and a points system, it would have been a 'must have' instead of a 'what the fickety-fuck is this shitballs?'.
On that subject, the guy in the shop said he has sold zero Sigmar boxes. Nada. None. Nothing. His customers hate it. Cabbage riding Orruks? Nope. Everyone is sticking to 40k or hopping over to X Wing, which I think will be my next game. But first I must recover and get back to work. Gotta get me a Rey flown falcon baby, because #wheresrey? Hasbro dropped the ball shaped pooch and fuck it when it comes to Rey.
Gotta say, dating me has really raised my bar for potential future girlfriends. I am generous, thoughtful, I understand my miniature addiction, love eighties goth music, funny, am totally freakin' gorgeous and actually can make a cup of tea to British standards (the color of he-man).
Oh, and if you would actually like to meet lil' ole me and see me model on computer things live, or get free lessons on how to, you will find me at PAX australia 2016 at the CG Spectrum booth.
I will also be on a couple of the panels, talk about my past works in character design for games (I worked on Dragonage, Civilization IV, Unreal Tournament 04, Lord of The Rings Online, Dungeons and Dragons Online and many more). These days I mentor the next gen online.
I will also be on panels covering some of the LGBTIQAP+ and feminist issues in games- most specifically how to design female characters.
Also you may spot me at the Reaper Painting tables. Because minis.
