On the subject of Amazon aquarium scenery, this mausoleum is perfect for Frostgrave Mordheim etc

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Europet-International-Aquarium-Decoration-Mausoleum/dp/B002JJ95M4/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?keywords=aquarium+mausoleum&qid=1583011039&sr=8-1

It regularly bounces around between £14-20, I got it for 13.93 yesterday - tempted while digging up the previous link - and not disappointed in the flesh, it’s 11 3/4” high and virtually table ready. Just need to add some plank floors to let figures get further inside - away from the dinosaurs!

"But me no buts! Our comrades get hurt. Our friends die. Falkenburg is a knight who swore an oath to serve the church and to defend the weak. He'd be the first to tell you to stop puling and start planning. Because what we are doing-at risk to ourselves-is what we have sworn to do. The West relies on us. It is a risk we take with pride. It is an oath we honour. Even when some soft southern burgher mutters about us, we know the reason he sleeps soft and comfortable, why his wife is able to complain about the price of cabbages as her most serious problem and why his children dare to throw dung and yell "Knot" when we pass. It's because we are what we are. For all our faults we stand for law and light.

Yeah my google-fu is failing me, apparently there's a few things called Dokuro Head.

I'd recommend flying to Japan and wandering around till you find some

Looking up Epoch Capsule Collection finds this product as well as a series of robot minis, including an Ultron-looking robot sitting at a gothic writing desk. There also appear to be a set of religious statues that could prove useful.

Still no idea what Dokuro means, but I’m more sure than ever that it’s made up of transliterated English words or word parts.

ドクロ is 髑髏 in kanji, and apparently refers to a clean, bare human skull, at least according to Wikipedia. Google ドクロby itself and you get all sorts of spooky stuff, including charcoal.

Huh. I stand corrected. So, why use katakana if the word can be written in kanji?

Style.
It's like italics or a fancy font or misspelling the name of your product on purpose.

This is quite likely. Also, there are a lot of words that people just don't use the kanji for, either because they are so difficult to write or because they are used so rarely that no one can read them. Like 薔薇, or the kanji for all but the most common fish.

Going back about 15 years or more now but they did actually remove their hooded executioner model from sale unless it naturally went OOP.

The fact that they actually made a big axe wielding, hooded executioner in the first place for a toy line is just amazing.


As for the adapted Arena above, I feel he ruined it by replacing the playmobil figure statues with the daemons....

Hooded Executioners are not that bad - I mean any kid doing history of someone like Henry VIII is going to see at least two of them in the story with artwork/depictions of someone with a sword/axe wearing a hood.

It's about as scary/bad/dark as a knight with a sword

But underneath the hood is a big smiley face! The horror!


Don't get me wrong. I wanted one.
