Re: The Room 101 thread - for things you hate or just having a bloody good moan

I'm okay with some of them, as long as people don't start saying 'erbs instead of herbs.

Re: Shithole or its lovely here

It makes me realise how I'd completely be lacking courage in the same situation. If I saw that going on outside my house I'd call the Police while trembling. (My avatar does not represent me).

There's no way I'd storm out, all Billy Big Bollocks, let alone doing it bollock-exposed.

Re: Board Games

I quite like the idea of Nedry, Muldoon and Hammond scarpering to the helicopter and leaving the rest to their deaths. :lol:

Re: Borderlands 3

Maya's decent, although in single player she needs her skill tree to be very carefully managed - especially in playthrough 2 onwards. I found BL2 more difficult to solo than BL1 on the next playthroughs in general. The incoming damage becomes insane to deal with at times. (Not including Gaige, but I...

Amazingly, they went for something that looked even worse.

About 20 seconds into this video, it shows the size really well with the guy standing on the fuselage.

Re: The Hobbies and Model-Making Thread

Tom Cruise is so small he would probably fit in the model cockpit anyway. While making it, it made me realise how absolutely massive the F14 was when looking at the tiny seats. The amount of thrust it needed from those 2 engines just to get it off the end of the flight deck - even with the catapult ...

Re: Borderlands 3

I think I said before, when it comes to single player - BL2 was the better game overall, but BL1 had the slightly better classes.

Co-op I'm not sure about. I've heard a lot of good things about BL2 co-op class match-ups though.

Re: The Hobbies and Model-Making Thread

Also, the problem with 1/350 WW2 ship models is that almost all of them are the same kits that have been around for donkey's years. Tamiya make some awesome US/Japanese ships, but they have the same limited range they had in the 90s. Same for Airfix/Revell to some degree. I guess it's more cost-effi...

Re: The Hobbies and Model-Making Thread

Impressive stuff Raid. You don't see that sort of model making very often - it's nearly always ships and planes on most model forums! I've been looking over my Space Wolves Terminators I started painting years ago; I finished one completely and half-finished 3 more. But loads of my original citadel ...

Re: Tabletop Games

Sure, perhaps a mod could split out the last 4 or 5 posts and make a Hobby/Modely/Paintingy thread?

I'm thinking of getting back into my wooden ship model I started buildng years ago but has been collecting dust.

Re: The Apprentice 2019

For the first time in 15 years I'm actually considering giving up watching it for good. I had to fastforward through most of that 1st episode, and that's coming from someone who's always championed the show.

I mean, I'll still have another go at the next episode. I might get into it.

Re: Tabletop Games

Thanks. I had a bit of a nightmare with the varnish though. I don't have an airbrush so had to do it by hand. The main coat was from a spray can.

I've decided if I do another one I'm definitely buying an airbrush!

The Hobbies and Model-Making Thread

I guess this is the closest thing we have to a 'hobby thread'. I recently finished my 1/72 Tomcat model, as they looked on USS Nimitz in 1986. "Your ego's writing cheques your body can't cash!"
