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...
