    Hahaha... not with the PS5 unleashed!!! Elden Ring time! :D

    It went well. I took some pictures, but doubtful that I can make a good battle rep from it. We'll see.

    Dice rolling was on point.



    The good stuff.

    I hereby petition you for a Bat Rep. I want to see the CD's in action!

    Did Bessie get to play?

    She did! She most surely did!


    Speaking of which, somebody might have picked up a model to be used as a second K'daai Destroyer! :wideyed::cyclops::wideyed: She needs some significant restoration work to help her reach her full potential. Also a bit of conversion work. I'm hoping she'll be a beauty when all is said and done. Already have a code name for her too! Bessie has a sister in crime!

    I'll leave the rest a mystery. To be revealed at a later date, when I've had a chance to get some work done on her. (still working my way through PS5 Elden Ring though... so it may be a while :p)

    I'll be most interested to see which model you chose as a candidate for your second Destroyer - is it another Stonehorn or something else?

    Something completely different. In lore, Destroyers are created uniquely. They have different shapes, sizes and forms. That really gives me the opportunity to have a little bit of fun and pick up any model that catches my eye.

    So, my newly acquired Destroyer needed a base. I was not happy with the base that I made for Bessie. The plastic was too thin and flexible, resulting in a slight warping due to the contraction of the varnished corkboard. I took a while for this process to take effect, so I didn't notice until it was all finished. It's not a major issue, but it does bug me.

    So this time around, I raided my nicest plastic stock to make a far superior base. Its thicker and far more sturdy (it also cuts much nicer with my scroll saw)...

    Size = 150mm x 100mm

    It's so smooth and flawless, that I have not had the heart to scratch up and score the top surface (for better glue adhesion) yet.
