Thanks 3Strike! I certainly will. Two IC's are on the current docket. Once those are done I'll have some leeway to choose what I want rather than being tournament list driven... which'll be nice for a change.

see, I don't get that- If the TARDIS appears in a Medieval village, it has some psychic effect on people so that they don't notice it...why do others see the actual blue Police box?

It doesn't make it invisible... just... unremarkable. And just like his psychic paper it doesn't seem to work on everyone. Just most folks who are preoccupied with their normal lives and are very easily swayed by the psychic suggestion.

makes perfect sense

Ok, I have a 3rd one, but it is a bit, strange, that's why it's in a spoiler
Spoiler:
#3 Random Marine: "Come on, guys, you didn't leave a piece of them for me! that's it, I'm not going and you can't make me"
Sarge: "I'm sure you killed 1..."
RM: "NO I DIDN'T!"
Sarge: "Fine, you can kill the next one, now, let's move!"

Sarge: "What the.....*Splats*

And on that unfaithful day, we lost our battles brothers who got crushed by a gaint wang.

Is this funny? If anyone finds this offensive or other, Please tell me and i'll swiftly edit or delete this comment.



I lol'd at this for the very reason that it's be hilarious to see some marines getting killed by a giant alien reptile creature's wang.

OK Guys... I said both 2-days and Thursday PM for the end of the contest. Since we're wandering into tallywhacker (?) territory I think it's time to call it a day. I'll have a separate voting thread up once I figure out how to make a poll.



Back OT... I finished the detail on the apothecary this morning. Every time I look at this damn figure I see something else that needs to be painted... but for good or ill I'm done now. It's time to move on to the next step (which will happen this evening). Coat of satin varnish, lining with badab black & then 2-3 coats of thinned white. Note the banner for his name is still empty.

No matter what happens, no matter what goes wrong, what happens...THEY SHALL NOT GET THIS LITTLE RED SKULL!!!"
