50 years in time and space

Happy 50th anniversary to Doctor Who.  That I remember the 25th anniversary makes me feel a bit old though...  :-)

Well, I've seen the 50th anniversary special, and they cheated.  Of course they cheated.  With time travel you can always cheat.  It's not the same show from my youth, similar yes, and still tied to it's heritage, but it's different.  That doesn't mean that I didn't enjoy it.  I did.  But they still cheated. :-)

Miniatures Monday

A dreadful cyclops hurls the skulls of his victims at his enemies!

Another of my very old miniatures.  I got this one for Christmas in 1982 as part of one of the Grenadier Dungeons and Dragons Action Art sets.  Those were the sets that came with paints.  I was always very excited about the idea of painting this one, but it still ended up taking me 31 years to get around to it. :-)

Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls

The Kickstarter rewards for Deluxe Tunnels & Trolls continue to arrive.  Yesterday I received the commemorative coin set.  I have to seat that they are way cooler than I had even hoped for.
