    Monolith trying to put you out of a job UH!!! Deluxe storage box for Mythic Battles… but it only stores cards, dice and omphalus… and they want $25 for it.

    I’d rather have a box to store miniatures safely (and compactly) as cards are never a problem. And as far as I can tell, does not store dashboards.

    ‘Job’ would imply I’m getting paid. 🙂

    The reminds me, I should do a tutorial video on using rare earth magnets to store miniatures.

    Maybe you should just tease your foamcore plans and sell the plans for a fee…

    Not really in the spirit of the EOG! And not practical anyway, people would just pirate the PDFs. 🙂

    And they went with Parente addon for Mythic Battle to add the porn miniatures….

    Wasn’t serious about pay-per-foamcore…

    I know. My comment was:
    Ridiculous, embarrassing, retrograde. But that’s just my personal opinion.

    They’re like cartoons from 1960s Playboy.

    Whoops, thought you meant payment for plans – some people have done it!

    Good point with playboy and although that art has a place in history, it’s not for the gaming table.

    The standard Aphrodite for Mythic is more “Carry on Greek”, but that’s fine.

    These companies seem to hire Parente for pinup work and his figures cause outrage or lust… which is odd for a lump of plastic.

    I’m more disgusted by the aggressive knee-jerk outrage against the so-called ‘PC brigade’. There’s a lot of ignorant, childish men out there who feel very threatened by anything that they interpret as detracing from what they see as their time-honoured privilege to be a complete arsehole. The problem is, the king of them all has just been elected President.

    Have to disagree with you there, UH. The Trump is anything BUT PC. He is a complete and utter disgrace, though 😉

    Agree on the hypocrisy of the SJWs though. It’s completely non-essential to gameplay and they still can’t leave well enough alone. Meanwhile, they will happily let their precious 5-year old daughters chop Pictish sorcerer heads off with glee. What screwed up values!

    Sorry, you’re misunderstanding what I said CK. Note I said ‘against’ what they call the PC brigade.

    I’m complaining about the idiots who get aggressive towards anyone asking for a bit of equality and representation in games, and immediately abuse them with silly, meaningless, condescending epithets like ‘PC’ and ‘SJW’.

    I hate those ridiculous labels. I respect people who care about more interesting stories with more representation, who want minorities to finally be seen in popular culture as they are in real life, and who ask that all types of people be respected for who they are and how they choose to live. The more they speak up the better.

    Quite apart from the puerile, casual sexism of models like this, it’s BORING and DATED!

    Parente is the artist equivalent of Sid James, but Sid was funny with it.

    And he died in the 70s.
