  1. Some names have been added, as well as a few more items!
  2. Welcome to the Split Box Deal! In this topic I divide up the contents of boxes and clamshells so players can get those specific minis they need. If you there is anything you want, simply post a reply to the topic to indicate your interest and your name shall be added to the listed item! If an item already has a name then that is who has claimed it, but stocks are replenished regularly so more items arrive all the time. Once an item is claimed the rest shall be conducted via PM - either I contact you or you contact me; whichever comes first! For quick reference, here are the postage rates: Postage Rates: UK 96p (so long as I can fit it in a padded envelope). Europe £3.60 Australia/New Zealand £4.60 USA/Canada/Rest of World £4.20 To view the list of available items, simply click the link: To the list!
  3. After a weird incident today I very sincerely uttered that popular three-word phrase meaning "utter astonishment" So that got me thinking, what incidents have you experienced in real life which have left you absolutely baffled and unsure of what to say beyond "W-T-Fuck...?" 0_o...? And I don't mean just weird pictures on the internet *intended* to illicit such a response, I mean stuff that happens in the real world or things that people have said/done with a straight face and were utterly serious. I'll start the ball rolling with today's incident: A friend of my Faither's drops by our work looking for him for a chat. I have known this guy for many years and we have hung out before. He asks if my faither is in. He wasn't, so I invite him in to wait since he shouldn't be long. He asks, "Do you know who I am?" "Yeah, of course I do!" "Ok, I'm Tom and you are...?" I tell him. He asks again for clarity, and again I tell him, now getting really confused... "Ok, is Ronnie's son about?" "....yeah..." "Oh?" "It's me! I'm his son!" "Oh! I thought you were the other one." The other one being my co-worker who looks nothing like me. "No, that's Graeme, he's out right now." "Ah right. I always thought you were darker!" "....uhm... sorry, I can't account for that." 0_o
  4. We didn't - these shall be the first in quite a while but I'm trying altering the prices slightly to shift the Uhlans if you'd still like a Tikbalang? Tikbalang £21 Uhlan £17
  5. OK, a bunch of stuff has been posted today, and a slight update on the list.
  6. I may have to adjust prices slightly to help move those Uhlans, by £2 or so, but apart from that I can indeed provide the rest!
  7. And in the meantime that's a bit of an update with some more Acontecimento units.
  8. Boy, he sure showed that carpet who's boss! I wonder if he tells his palls that he got kicked out the Spetsnazs 'cause he was too tough.
  9. I do the DF#6 humans for £7 each, and traps are £2 each.
  10. I think this can be done, yeah. I do those bolts for £6 each (Aquila from that box really skews the prices since it's so unpopular)
  11. Sure! I'll be making a supplier order in the morning, so if anyone wants anything else now's as good a time as any to ask.
  12. I mentioned this a few months ago but it's worth repeating now: My aunt was a teacher at a primary school, and one of the parents genuinely believed that Starbursts count as fruit.
  13. Unfortunately not, sorry; this OpIce split was to provide a Padre Knight for an earlier request.
  14. He has gotten a bit mad, especially since he had some of his intestines removed due to a fistula. Main reason that happened is that his diet has been mostly garbage for years now; refuses to eat fruit or vegetables. Now, for some reason, since his time in hospital he's been saying "Ah, see! Eating healthy doesn't work - you should just have whatever you want!" seemingly oblivious to the fact that this mindset is what got him into this bloody mess! He'd class a couple of pickled olives as 2 of his 5-a-day. Shit, I wouldn't be surprised if he thought cheese also counts.
  15. I am about to split an OpIce box so shall be able to provide 1 more.
  16. Right, updated the list with some new items, particularly from the new Bakunin and Proxy 2G boxes.
  17. It's poor Xi Zhuang on his lonesome *without* his little friends that's the problem :/
  18. I think I'm at the point where I don't want to provide any Mad Traps until there's more interest in Xi Zhuang on his own.
  19. Been a while since I had a familial WtF so where better to start in this new year than my bloody faither... He decided to get a new car, a Mazda MX5, and seems to have rushed through the process (was even going to buy it without a test drive, the eejit) and has been fretting about his certificate of registration for his old car, a Renault Megane cabriolet (clunky piece of shit). He'd been searching all over the place, even calling me at work in case I knew where it might be. I heard that he'd been flying all over the place like a cartoon character trying to find it, all to no avail. All I can guess is that he threw the damn thing out by accident in one of his alcohol-fueled bouts of inspiration when he decides he'll "tidy up a bit" by throwing everything nearby in the bin. His main concern was how much it would cost to get the DVLA to send him a new one... £25 Great British Pounds!! If £25 is causing so much grief, he probably shouldn't be buying a god-damned car. And while I'm on the topic of his moments of alcoholic divine inspiration, he has done some really WtFy things in the past. Like the time I found out he'd burned most of my packaging materials (when I still used all-recycled) because he thought he'd tidy the place up. And when I wanted to have a "Consoles through the ages!" day for my brithday, starting with the SuperNES and working our way up to the Xbox360, and when I went to retrieve my N64 from my folks I found that he'd given the whole lot away as part of a Rotary Club charity thing. He may have had good intentions, but it would have been nice to be asked... IIRC he may also have done something similar to their CD collection, most of which was owned by my mother, deciding to "tidy it up" by throwing loads of it in the bin for... reasons.
  20. Ok, messages have been sent and the latest wave of releases have been added to the webstore! I shall also have split minis from Bakunin and the Posthuman 2Gs up on the list, real soon. http://www.shaekonnitgames.com/
  21. Right, a bunch of names have been added so the messages shall be flying out soon!
  22. Was just reminded of this WtF, today... Last year, wife and I were at the Download rock festival. Amongst all the other food stalls there was a place doing a hog roast, so we thought the perfect accompaniment to all the beer we were drinking would be a pack of crackling, as offered by every other hog roast stall we have ever seen. So, wife goes off to get some. When she asks the stallholders if they have any crackling they look at her as if she'd just asked for sliced, live cat sauteed in their children's tears. Eventually, after a bit of convincing that she was actually serious, they gather up some of this salted gold they were intent on throwing in the bin that night and place it in a bag. Unable to reach a price in their own minds, wife offers them £2, which they accept. Those guys had to be out of their god-damned minds not to sell bags of crackling at a place practically swimming in beer! Shit, if we were on the ball and the weather was a wee bit better we would have offered them £10 for all the crackling they had and then went around selling it off at £2 a bag. That alone would have paid off the tickets.
