  1. I dunno what rules, but I've long been interested in 15mm scaled skirmish 40k, so I'll be keeping an eye on this.
  2. Resin for sure. One of the guys from the 2ps in a pod podcast is printing himself a warmaster army. Give a listen: http://www.2psinapod.com/
  3. To be absolutely fair, while I'd really like my FLGS to stock what I want, expecting them to carry several lines of historical miniatures in (minimum) three different scales and five different time periods is probably a little unreasonable... At some point, I imagine we'll get to the point where niche markets like that really do get taken over by 3d printing in some form or another; whether that's personal ones, small point of sale operations, or the ones we already have like Shapeways. 3d printing is probably never going to be great for mass production on the scale of Asmodee or GW, but
  4. The new owner does seem to be narrowing their focus considerably. I think all their Adeptus Titanicus was on the clearance table this past weekend. I suppose it's a better business decision, but it does give me fewer reasons to go there...
  5. If Guardian has dropped it, then your best bet is Geeks & Games in Oregon City. Last I was in there (October) they still had it, and the owner is a long-time player.
  6. That's why we have one sex but two sices. (Or more, for some species, I suppose)
  7. Need some '80s kids on wheels for Stranger Things? You're covered.
  8. My 8 year old just finished reading the complete Calvin & Hobbes. Made me very happy to see her enjoy something I also enjoyed at her age.
  9. I bet that the shield is glued on wrong. It should be attached so that it's resting on the ground and the dwarf is holding the top of it. It's possible the shield is from another miniature. What does the back of the figure look like?
  10. I second this. My family does it every year; we just got through a quarter cow, and we do a regular salmon share through Iliamna Fish Company. We also used to buy lots of 20 chickens from a farm out near Yamhill, but they stopped doing it... Word of warning, though: with the current supply chain problems, even whole or half animals are getting a little more difficult to find; we've been trying to source half an organic (etc.) hog, and have had some delays because of more demand than usual. Also, if you've never been to Gartner's Meat Market on Northeast Killingsworth, you owe it to y
  11. The 2020 GURPS PDF Challenge is entering its final hours. You get 12 GURPS PDFS for only $3, and a pretty darn good deal on other GURPS PDFs if you back for more. If you're at all interested in GURPS, this is a good way to get more.
  12. Clearing out the ol’ painting queue the easy way. Cash or AdMech trade only, and only within an hour’s drive of Portland. No shipping. I will not break up these lots. Necrons List price: $216 Asking price: $80 These are painted in the classic Necron scheme of “Rattlecan Silver Primer” Cryptek 3 Canoptek Stalkers 5 Immortals 5 Lychguard Codex: Necrons Seraphon List price: $248 Asking price: $120 NIB Skinks, NIB Start Collecting: Seraphon (the old one with Carnosaur) Saurus Scar Veteran on Carnosaur (basecoated) 8 Saurus Knights (Basecoated) Order Battletome
  13. Let me rephrase: Which of these would be the correct rewriting of the rule? A) The distance a model moves is measured using the part of the model's base (or hull) that moves furthest along the model's path (including parts that rotate or pivot). B) The distance a model moves is measured using the part of the model's base (or hull) that moves furthest along the base's, hull's, or rotating/pivoting part's path (including parts that rotate or pivot).
  14. In the sentence "The distance a model moves is measured using the part of the model's base (or hull) that moves furthest along its path (including parts that rotate or pivot)" does the word in bold refer to the model or to the base/hull/rotating part?
  15. Contrary to our perceptions, the world is getting better. We naturally focus on the negative, but things are still better than they were ten or a hundred years ago.
