Funny Story...

So I get home from a late night run to my LGS after picking up the latest NQ issue along with more white paint, epic Thagrosh, and epic Doomshaper. And... wait... let me back up...

This weekend is the Hordes Schism tournament at my LGS. I decided it would be fun to play epic Doomshaper at the tournament, so I figured I'd pick him up today so that I can get him assembled for the tournament. So an evening run was in order. Ok, back to now...

So I get home and my wife says to me "How much did you buy?" And... wait... let me back up again...

My wife and I have an agreement. We have a "magic jar". Into this jar I put receipts from when I buy anything relating to this miniatures hobby. Then she gets to take the receipts out and get an equivalent amount of money to spend as she sees fit. This creates a fun little dynamic where she actually encourages me to spend money on this hobby. It makes us both happy. Ok, back to now...

So I pull out the receipt from the bag and stuff it into the magic jar and my wife smiles. They she asks where the model I got for this weekend is. After pulling a bunch of bits out of the blister pack, she says to me "You could easily finish that by Sunday couldn't you?" So, long story short, I'm now challenging myself to have eDoomshaper painted for the Schism tournament this weekend. Whee!!!

haha, that is funny indeed :D Have to introduce this magic jar, but then the other way around. My GF should put HER receipts into the jar from all the shoes and clothes she buys!!
