Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaagghhh!!!!!!



Through clumsiness, lack of attention, and general stupidity, last night I knocked the box containing all of my Hordes of the Things armies off the box on which it was sitting onto the floor.  It made a horrible crunching sound.  When I realized what I'd done, I let loose a long yell, then turned the air blue with my cursing for several minutes afterward. 

After apologizing to my wife for the language that sent her into another room, I surveyed the damage.  Nearly every element in my 48-point 40K Imperial Guard army had lost one or more figures, and about half of my Fire Giant army needs to be glued back to its base.  I also need to fix a couple of stands in my Skeleton army.  I haven't looked at my spider horde army, but since it's made up of dollar store toys and has already endured one fall from a great height, I'm not too worried about the arachnids. 
Luckily, none of my strongholds were damaged, nor were the airboat and flyers for my 40K army, which were stored in a foam-lined box.  I'll need to go to the store for a new tube of Gorilla Glue, but all in all, the damage could have been a lot worse.  Looks like I've got some gluing to do this afternoon...

Man that is like a mini-lovers worst nightmare. I won't even recount the horrors inflicted on my medieval andalusian army on our move from Detroit to Texas. Sad beyond words.

While moving a couple weekends ago my Dad and I dropped a table containing his prized Commodore 64 and monitor. We have backups of the computer, but it may take some doing getting a new monitor for that old beast. I think I know what you felt when this happened.
