Setting up the man cave has been progressing slowly but surely. Things have been hampered by the fact that at some point my shed was paid a visit by these little ahem “nibblers”.
They have gotten into almost everything and there are little black mouse turds every-fucking-where. So every box has to have every item checked for damage, de-turded and then sorted into piles so it can be unpacked or taken to the tip. Initially I was in shock at how much damage they’ve managed to do but it quickly turned to rage. I haven’t seen one yet and I honestly think they’ve moved, even my cat hasn’t paid any attention to the open shed. But I swear to God that if I see one freaking little whisker then I’m going to seek retribution Incredible Hulk style.
I should be able to get the shed completely emptied tomorrow and then all the shelves, cupboards and other storage can be moved in. Once I’ve decided on a layout then I can start putting stuff away.
On a happy note though, I’ve come across heaps of stuff I’d either forgotten about or that I simply couldn’t find. Some of it has been promptly squirreled away where I can find it again later and some of it such as a small Clan War army has been put up on the WargamerAU Buy/Swap/Sell forums for trade. By 9am this morning I had offer to trade them for a small collection of Games Workshop’s Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle game.
I’ve been wanting to get into this game for a while but the prohibitive cost of GW minis has put me off, $20 for a single character is just plain crazy. This trade will land me a various sets of the Fellowship, 48 elves and some elf heroes/personalities, 24 human warriors, 12 riders of Rohan, 5 Ring Wraiths, 12 Moria Goblins and the Fellowship and Two Towers rulebooks. I probably won’t do too much with these until after I’ve finished all the Incursion stuff (which all shipped today so I should have them here in about two weeks – woohoo!).
So hopefully tomorrow I’ll be able to post some photos of “Man Cave mk 1”.
