    Ish got a reaction from zcaust83 in Marvel Crisis Protocol?   
    I’m as mobile as TriMet and/or Uber can make me, so pretty much anywhere in Portland is do-able.

    I skipped on getting the official mat, because I opted to get one as an add-on to my Monster Scenery: Metropolis bundle... Unfortunately, Covid-19 hit hard and production delays have pushed the shipping date all the way back to September...
    But, I’ve got the core box, all the other figures from Waves 1-3, and a good selection of cardstock buildings, and other terrain. Two extra dice sets too!
    MCP is a really fun game, I really want to make a regular thing out of it.

    All of it is very close to GW's designs, which is obviously intentional, but I don't think any of it is a direct copy. Kinda hard to assert any unique intellectual property over pipes, boilers, and smokestacks.

    I must not derp.
    Derp is the reputation-killer.
    Derp is the little-death that brings epic fail.
    I will face my derp.
    I will permit it to pass over me and through me.
    And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path.
    Where the derp has gone there will be nothing.
    Only clue will remain.

    There’s three or four scenes that consist of nothing but the characters debating what the consequences of the “time heist” might be. It’s like the entire character arc for Tony... 
    And there are major consequences.
    The entire plot of both WandaVision and The Falcon and the Winter Soldier rested entirely on exploring the moral questions of the snap, the snap’s undoing, and the consequences of both. Spider-Man: Far From Home also touched on these issues, albeit not as heavily. 
    We haven’t seen it yet, but it seems quite likely that these issues will also be a major part of the story in Black Widow, Loki, Hawkeye, Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness, and likely the next Spider-Man.... Probably gonna be a major part of Thor’s journey in Thor: Love and Thunder too.

    Lamb Chop, the beloved sheep puppet created by Shari Lewis, once testified before the United States Congress. No, I didn’t mean Shari Lewis, I meant Lamb Chop. 
    Here’s the official transcript from the official Congressional Record. "Miss Lamb Chop" is legally recognized as a distinct speaker from Lewis.

    Ish got a reaction from Romans832 in Mcfarland Marine arrived!   
    She’s finally here! 


    Nicely detailed sculpt, but the paint application is really minimal... It’s well done, with no visible “slop” and given that a lot of it is white paint over black plastic, the fact that there’s little to no “see through” is impressive. But, I dunno... Kinda wish it was more than just “table top” quality.
    Overall, I’m happy with her. But not quite a five-star rating.

    Okay! Enough shame from the Magical Moorish Vikings! I’ve got them out of their boxes, attached to their bases, and hit with the first primer layer.

    One point for four Hearthguard; one point for twelve Levies with Bows; and three points for 24 Warriors (divided into two units of twelve).
    I’ll need to track down an appropriate Warlord figure and figure out how I want to spend my sixth point... I’m leaning towards either keeping it simple with another point of Warriors or getting fancy and adding a point of Breton Cavalry mercenaries.

    It’s called the “Pile of Shame” for a reason. I kind of figure my afterlife will be spent, like Sisyphus, ever toiling away at a task that will never be finished... with the Erinyes swooping in every so often to spill my paint pots and ruin the points of my brushes.

    Some cool “retro” sci-fi figures, should be great for Stargrave, Traveller, and whatever else where you need sci-fi spacemen but don’t want them too grimdark or cyberpunk.

    I think GW really, really, really screwed up the game with the switch to the AoS setting and the breakup of the existing armies into 24,601 sub-factions (many of which were mechanically illegal to field under Matched Play rules).
    They’ve managed to claw their way out of the hole they dug for themselves, but... Yeesh. It took far longer to do that then it should have.
    It still feels like the people working on the setting have no unified vision for what it is supposed to be. The tone, the direction, the themes... It’s all over the map. WHFB had a wide range of themes and tone too, but it was all anchored on a central vision of “Semi-realistic Renaissance European nations and Tolkien-esque fantasy kingdoms, mashed up with Moorcock-esque Dark Fantasy.”

    I really want to play Team Yankee; I love the idea of a modern(ish) combined arms game, but there doesn’t seem to be much of a community for it here in Portland.
