You're Dirty Too: It's Okay to Look

No, it's not another girl-gamer joke, though God Bless Watchmen for coming up with great costumes for women to squeeze themselves into.  No, instead it's time for a look at another gameroom.

Don't scoff.  Analytics tells me you guys were interested in the two times I dumped shots of my man-room on an unsuspecting public, so I know you're interested.  I think it's the voyeur in all of us, though this time that part of your mind is hijacked by the gamer portion... and that portion is a sick puppy, let me tell you.

Why, instead of internet porn like a normal dude, you're reading BoLS.  Go figure.  Still, it saves in cleaning costs, I suppose, but I'm sure you're equally embarrassed when you're caught looking at miniatures at work.

But (as always), I digress.  The Master Manipulator (every store needs one) was kind enough to accede to my constant requests for pictures of his game room.   Note the interesting solution to storage problems... as well as the sheer madness of owning so much metal and plastic.

I like this last pic - the upper shelving is a good idea for extra space.  Any of you bloggers out there have other ideas you'd care to share?

Till next time - Brent

I have a similar solution for my stuff--but I try to use clear containers exclusively so I can see what's inside them.

As for minis working as a substitute for pr0n, I dunno... I just don't get a climax when I see them all covered up like this. Take off some of the wrappers and show us the goods!!

lmao! I WISH my room was half as tidy as that...

he just cleaned it recently. Sorted organized and found things he had forgotten he had. It usually doesn't look like this...

When the OC takes over though he becomes the org master...

Free paper boxes + labeling beats spending cash on plastic boxes. Free boxes = more plastic crack.

Mine doesn't look nearly this neat either. Its really rather a mess. Brent's is even cleaner than mine.

I told my wife to thank her aunt for the clean room. I really was a mess before this. Why the change you ask...well my wifes aunt gave me a large and let me restate large amount of ziplock baggies and my OCD self felt the need to bag up the loose parts.

Well then I needed to box up the bags.....

And this is the result. Man I really have too much crap!!!

Master Manipulator (every store needs one) said...

Oh yeah...I have about 6-10 more copy paper boxes of crap in my garage as well. I wonder if AA would take me?

Wanna know the sad part...of my close friends locally...I probably have the 3rd maybe 4th largest collection.

Something I learnt from a fellow player is not to stick your buildings to the bases.

First and most important this makes storage easy, with them stuck to the boards you cannot stack them and have to have them particularly arranged. My bases stack up in a box and then the buildings arranged so they all go in the box together.

Second thing is so you can move models easier. Sometimes it's not a problem, though other times you might have models in areas you cannot reach so well. So lifting up the building helps.

(A new favorite!) Anon: I haven’t even bothered playing a game of 6th yet, cause I have read the rules, and actually understand how they interact with units. I know my armies no longer function how they should, and so I need to change them.

Strictly Average: 'cause 6-inches is all you get.

I'm a comment whore and this whore is getting no play.

Not Brent hurts Brent's feelings.

I think, therefore I blog.

Not Brent has been spotted lurking around with a green marker.

He's not like a bad guy from a cartoon, all devious but never quite evil, Not Brent is bad beans, man, bad beans.

Dethtron: "Again I feel obliged to remind you that trying to sound smart only works if you are."

MVB: "I am not one to join the unwashed masses of self-titled 40k experts out there distributing advice from their blogs about exactly how your list should be built..."

Shiner Bock on tap: that's how I choose hotels.

Don't feed the trolls!

MoD: "Welcome to Brent's head."

Dethtron: "...you could use that extra time to figure out a way to get your panties unbunched and perform a sandectomy on your vagina."

Dethtron: “When calling someone an idiot, it's generally best to avoid making grammatical mistakes.”

Warboss Stalin: "You know, if it actually WAS funny, maybe I wouldn't mind."

Mike Brandt: "It's not a successful bachelor party if you don't misplace someone".

"The Master Manipulator (every store needs one): "...now, enough stroking."

Kirby: "I don't know about gropings. Seriously, Brent, keep it in the pants, please."

Captain Kellen: "I rate this article a Brent on the Faith Hill to Nancy Pelosi scale!"

Drathmere: "Come for the balls, stay for the Brent? Kind of disturbing, man."

Go no further, lest thee see something thine eyes would fain look past!

Isabelle: "So, thank you for supporting your local and not so local unicorns. A noble gesture like that can show some scared kids out there that they don't have to hide from everyone and it's ok to be who they really are."

There is nothing more interesting than We The People... in all our beautiful, ugly glory!

On Internet Advice: You see, I have an almost religious belief that's it's a huge, colossal waste of time.

...I think I'll call it the Gun Shy Pattern Stormbuster, because after the Internet destroyed my first humble effort, I find I'm a bit worried about the reaction to this one.

Lauby: "Is it left over from that time you thought that you could just complete step one 12 times to meet the mandates of that court order?"

Not Brent: "I guess we'll have to read on and find out. Signed, Not Brent. Especially today."

Cynthia Davis: "I think the scrolling text is from Glen Beck's new book."

Grimaldi: "Spamming certain units creates interesting possibilities but also fatal weaknesses."

Purgatus: "Math can inform decisions. It cannot make decisions."

Thoughts? Comments? Hugs and gropings?

You'd be that much quicker to figure out what I mean when I refer to a Unicorn if I covered it in a rainbow flag.

SinSynn: (To Brent) "Curse you and your insidious influence on the internets..."

Dave G (N++): "You know you're an internet celebrity when your following is more akin to tabloids."

I prefer the term Internet Personality (or IP) myself, seeing as how I coined it.

Lauby: "Your attempt to humanize him as failed. I feel nothing but scorn for his beard - it's like a warcrime or something."

BBF: "I've always thought you are a good player but I finally figured out that you are a great player. It's hard to see sometimes because your personality is engaging, sincere and quite charming - to me that is kind of a rare combination."

'Clearly cheating?' I didn't misspeak: you jumped to conclusions. If you'd like to apologize I'll be happy to send you an autographed picture of my ass.


I thought I was doing alright before I realized I was losing.

Age and treachery beats youth and vigor every time.
