Yeah, there was some cool lightning on the drive in to work today.  I just wish I had my camera with me, and I wish it was a good enough camera to take pics of lightning...

I love this kind of weather.  Summer storms are awesome!

All this talk of football (soccer here in the states) has me anxious for American Football to start.  (NFL)

Crosses fingers.  Contractors that don't deliver on reasonable promises should be drawn and quartered.

Yeah, because she promised we in turn promised on her confirmation.  We've suspected for the last couple of weeks that she wasn't being straight with us but I think we came to the revelation too late.  The fella who can help us out is almost over committed with other obligations.  We'll see. 

I try to work by the principle, "Don't trust people."  Then again, I audit suppliers paperwork. 

Still can't get over the audacity of some people whose thought process is "It will be ok..."  I had a supplier submit a canidate to a position that no joke submitted a grainy photograph of the canidate holding her diploma on graduation day as proof of education.  Seriously?!  In what world do you live in that it would be considered ok?!

Some people, what ever happened to the 40's-50's work ethic where people were ashamed to be lazy?

We have a cop in our Warhammer league
I played warhammer with a cop once........ he told me if I Pulled off the Infernal Gateway on his greatsworders one more time I'd spend the night in a jail cell hahaha

Did you get a private cell, or were you in with the general population?

"What are you in for?" 

"They busted me with a stash, you?"

"I cast a spell I shouldn't have."

<intimiding guys all move away slowly from geek>

Yes I was, though I am still mightily annoyed at the Ohio State Police for the one asshat who gave me a ticket for going 5 over on the high way.

Boo, that's pretty ticky-tack.  They do have the reputation for being sticklers, though.

I'm sure the U of M license plate didn't help.

My only other encounter was the cop who somehow gave me a free pass on going 60 in a 35 (this is not nearly as bad as it sounds, the road should be a 45 minimum) in my dad's BMW.

Yeah, not sure how I got out of that one.

I had the something similar happen to me once...70 in a 35, they pulled me over...saw the sword I had next to me for a production I was in at the time, and pulled me out of the car and searched me...ended up giving me a ticket for 40 in a 35, and told me put the sword in the trunk...I don't know what happened there either.

The only other time I got pulled over was a REALLY hot red-head who said I blew through a stop sign at railroad crossing.  (I was running late to work)  I told her I did, and was running late, and she said make sure I stop next time.  I told my boss and he said "Either present a ticket, or her phone number..."  LOL, I wish I would have gotten her number, she looked like Karen Gillan..


There's better pics of her, but I am at work...  :engel:

I really liked the Trinity season...after that I lost interest as I couldnīt imagine they could top that one.....and well I guess they couldnīt.

The show has steadily been declining, but I still liked the last couple seasons even if they were somewhat predictable...

I guess I am the same way with Dr. Who, I am enough of a fanboy that it really doesn't matter how bad an episode is.  Granted, the ones that are REALLY horrible ie; "Love&Monsters" I won't watch but once, good ones like the End of Time trilogy, I will watch over and over...

Ok, I must admit, when I heard the next mini you would be working on, I was skeptical.  TBH, I have never really liked that mini, because he was like, "Hey look at me, I am on Fire!, And I am magical!"  (Besides, does he even fit into a rank?)  But, with an alternate color scheme, I am really digging him!  Well done sir!  :::cheers:::

You, me, Towie, 023, jlutin, probably 1-2 in Chicago, Oak_Prince in Wisconsin, I think, and if we extend it to lower Canadia I can think of 1-2 more.

Heck, anyone who wanted to could come, wouldn't have to be just the Midwest.

Very True.  I will try to organize something in the near future.

And if you lived near me in the states, I would say we could get together and talk about our issues over a pint...   :::cheers:::

I'll drink to that.   :::cheers:::

You do, actually. Kind of (Ohio and Michigan).

Who knew?  (Well besides t, evidently.)

Not many...one day perhaps we can get together for "Gaming and Guiness"  (Although, to be honest I perfer Sam Adams)

WHFB The Electors' Forum / Next Purchase
« on: June 04, 2012, 05:56:10 PM »
So, I have a bit of disposable income, and need to purchase the book, and I can purchase maybe one other set from the new Empire minis.

The question is, without having the new book and not knowing what to order, which should I purchase in conjunction.

I have nearly 4k of Empire as it is.

Have: About 50 Halberds, 20 Greatswords, Stank (or will have plastic Stank soon), 32 or so Knights,26 Archers, 80 Militia, 30-40 Flaggies, War Altar, About 10 Wizards, Mtd General, General on Griffon (Old metal one), 30 Swordsmen, 4 Engineers, 2 cannon, 2 mortar, 2 Hellblaster/Rocket Battery,  10-12 Pistoleers, 2 Warrior Priests.  (And that's all I can remember for now, I will have a bit more if I use the unit fillers I plan on making)

So, what should I get from the following;

1.)  Book, and Demigryph Knights?  (I am doing Reikland/Bogenhafen, so it would be fun fluff wise to get these)

2.) Book and Hurricanum/Luminark?  (If I did this, I would have enough left over to get another state troop box or something else)

3.) Book and New Karl Franz kit? (I would have enough left for a new Captain or WitchHunter)

4.) Book and ...?

I can put in a reversed mix blessing in here...

I am feeling really depressed lately.  (Not suicidal, just very sad, for things that were, and can never be again.)

But, I am so busy at work, it makes it easy not to dwell on the past that seems to haunt me lately...

Or, elaborate that he was a traitor, and ran from his duty.

So, they caught him, put him in stocks, and took his boots so he can't run away again!   :biggriin:

Plus what I never got about the girl was how she was related to a puppet, that was the mayor ?? Some kinky stuff going on in her family I think.  :biggriin:

Hence the  pink hair...gene anomally from inbreeding perhaps?

Happy Random thought...Julianna Rose Mauriello

I was watching tv the other day with my son (6yo) and saw a bit of "Lazytown" never heard of it, but had a thought that the girl will look cute in a few years when she is older, then I saw that the year it was produced was a few years back....so did some research.

She's 22 now, and very attractive.

I'm 36, so I feel dirty...

No, but some of us are dead inside...

That's because we each die a little bit inside everytime we buy something from GW to support our Empire hobby...

I just finished watching Dexter S6. It was just plain awful. Some of the dialogue was just painful to listen to and the villain wasn't all that interesting.

Looking into Bones and Miami CSI to fill the offbeat crime show niche.

I agree, but still love the show, actually looking forward to the final season, and how they plan on getting past how s6 ended...

Our cat was hit by a car sometime yesterday. Got the call from the vet today. :(

Sorry to hear for your loss stretch...it sucks when you lose a furry family member.
