    Ditto. The body construction is really top notch there. As for mane... Kind of tricky with weird manes like Luna's. Maybe if they more model some of the comics? I'd still take a plush like this as is.

    ...and now I can't stop thinking about Toxic being sung in her voice.

    I'm kinda sorry for myself that this is the first thing I thought of, but now I can't get the image of Luna singing Toxic (Britney Spears) out of my mind... sparkling crystals in the Mane.... :P

    Not with the wings placed where they are. The natural place for a child to sit with the plushie constructed the way it is would be between the wings and the neck, but that would put quite a lot of strain on the wings and probably cause them to rip. And there's not enough area behind the wings to sit without slipping off.

    It would be enchanting though.

    I hate a song that makes you think that you are not any good. Because you are too old or too young or too fat or too slim. Too ugly or too this or too that. I am out to sing songs that will prove to you that this is your world no matter what color, what size you are, how you are built, I am out to sing the songs that make you take pride in yourself and in your work.

    Funny game total War. A wargame in which is is almost unilaterally better to click "autoresolve" than to actually fight a battle, especially if reinforcements are in any way involved. (It's extraordinary difficult to deploy reinforcements properly after the initial deployment; not helped by the controls be overly twitchy and eally rather janky.)
    It takes time, but the recolonization isn't too bad since there aren't really any threats at that point.

    See, I disagree. Kinda. Reinforcements are hard to manage, but I actually wait for them, while I'm pretty sure the AI just goes at it and lets them join in as they show up. It makes a pretty big difference. Other things the AI seems to be really bad at is targeting Artillery. Seriously, I auto resolved a fight and lost it. So I reloaded and took control of the fight. The enemies demon cannons went from killing hundreds of my troops to about a dozen or so. Which gave me a pretty easy win.

    Though the AI handles enemy Chariots a lot better then I do, and I think we're about even for infantry clashes. But the biggest thing the AI sucks at is using terrain.

    In this one map, there's this tiny hill that you can position on top of to force the enemy into a bottleneck. Added bonus is some nearby trees so you can hide flanking units. Using that terrain I managed to beat two 20 unit armies of Chaos in a row. As in, one attacked me, and then the other attacked me.



    Speaking of Total War 2 though, I've got some problems. See, I thought I was in the lead, but it ends up the High Elves are about to start the second to last ritual, almost straight after finishing the last one (which I interrupted). So problems! And the last ritual led to me losing about six or seven cities due to poor RNG on where the Chaos armies would appear, and the nation I confederated having only Skinks as troops.

    So now I face a difficult choice. Do I send my main army to go mess with the High Elves when they start the next ritual? Well, yes, yes I do. A better question is, do I bring them back? There are more random armies every new ritual. I have more armies, but this last ritual took me a long time to recover from. I mean, the timing looks like I'll be able to mess with the High Elves and still make it home in time, but maybe I should just keep killing elves. If I burn half their island to the ground, they won't be able to just, well pull this exact BS on me a second time.

    Of course that assumes that my main army can win against what looks to be an entirely unified High Elf faction.

    Same. For 1500 I'd probably end up spending it on a new central AC system for the house, or hire an electrician to rewire a bunch of the older lines. There are some wires in the back of the house that I don't know what they do, or if they're even live.

    Typical. Probably only a handful of turns left before the end of my TWW1 game and there is just not wquite enough time left to do it (as we might go out in the morning and I need to meditate...)

    Took my 160 turns into my second game to realise that some of the skills can be selected more than once. *skullpalm* I have wasted so many skill points on things I didn't really want but thought I had to have! (And I was thinking, "why were there so many extra skill points mods?" Next game, that'll be a thing as well...!)

    Well, nay frackin' wonder I've been struggling with things - I am learning just how utterly useless the tutorials - and the in-game key mapping listings - actual are. They don't tell you half the bloody controls!

I ended up watching a tutorial (trying to work out why Karl Franz's elite army never seemed to be getting much XP) by Party Elite and thought "well, given that NONE OF THAT was in the tutorial, what else am I missing?"

    Apparently, nearly bloody everything!

    I never watched any of the tutorials, but I've been playing Total War games for a very long time now, so I already knew the controls. And wow, that's pretty bad.


    On a side note, I hate the High Elves and their stupid fortress island. With them not having any hostile neighbors, having an ocean between them and any enemies, and having literal fortress cities, they are so blatantly easy mode for this game. The High Elves can suck it, and I'm going to burn their entire civilization to the ground for being so OP. Oh, not to mention they have High Elf factions on every continent, which has the trait 'Defender' which means they attack anyone who attacks their friggin island!

    $1500 is a lot of money. However, it takes a lot of time and material to make a quality plush.

    For a plush that size, it would probably take over $200 in material alone.

    As for the time, a lot more than you may think.



    I actually just finished a plush that I was working on for the last year. It is Derpy as a tree topper based on S6E8, A Hearth's Warming Tale. I finished after Hearth's Warming Eve because there was a delay on the shipment of the top star.

    And I think therein lies the problem. They made no effort to educate people who had never picked up a Total War game before.

    I mean, REALLY. The Spacebar menu thing is probably the single most important damn control in the game and, if that was mentioned at all, it was in passing only. And NOTHING was said about all the formation commands, especially the important Alt ones... Nvermind the Shift-drag path path that's y'know, pretty much vital for functional flanking!

    So I watched pretty much all of Party Elite's 40-odd videos today (so about 2-3 hour's worth or something) and I now have SOME idea of how to play the damn game passably.

    Notably, the first battle I fought was a supposedly auto-resolve unwinnable against the last fragments of Norsca against a basic garrision. Which I actually WON.

    So, a likely candiate for Bleakbane's Eventual First Playthrough of TWW2, then...



    I abandoned my Empire game at the point that only Brettonia, the Dwarves (both my allies), the Wood Elves (who they were at war with - technically I was, but neither of us had actually ever sent any forces to each other) the Border Princes left alive on the map.

    I have started the special Wood Elf mini-campaign, now having added an extra skill points mod to the mix (now that I know how skills work properly-like!) That started with a crazy-early attack of enemy Beastmen (seriously, like three stacks, two at once, 21 turns in on Easy), the only way in which I could win against was to auto-resolve the first battle and then actually fight the battles properly. And yeah, the muderous arrow barrages are pretty much what I was hoping they would be and what they were not with the Empire...!

    There is a huge variation between different wines and spirits. I like some whisky; some tastes like someone soaked an oak branch in paint stripper. Seriously though, it's an acquired taste that some people never acquire.

    White rum is fine, in mixed drinks at least. The colour in dark rum generally comes from being aged in oak barrels (or in stainless steel with oak shavings) which also adds tannins and other flavour complexity to the rum. For a lot of mixed drinks, you don't want the tannin. Most rums have sugar added after distillation, and spiced rums may have other flavours as well. Some even have gunpowder added, possibly as a marketing gimmick, and that saltpetre really burns.

    The favourite rum that I've tried was "Pyrat XO" IIRC, served in a brandy glass with a few drops of lime juice and sipped slowly.

    I can count on the fingers of one claw attack how many times I've imbibed alcohol in my life (it's zero since Undeath) and at least one of those was without my knowledge.



    (To be fair, it was Mum and is was brandy or something slipped into my lemsip, because I was dreadfully struggling with my chest at the time. I think that might have been the night I was awake at, like, four in the morning because of the coughing and we watched the first episode of Supersense (nature documentary) which had been previously recorded on video.)

    I myself prefer rum or vodka, or a very specific kind of whisky. Just rum by itself is good, and I do enjoy quite a few mixed drinks with either rum or vodka in them.

    As for the whisky, I love doing shots of Fireball, a cinnamon-spiced whisky. It's so good!

    dont like Fireball straight up...good with cola though

    most beers i like are hard to come by in this area(even in this age of global distribution)
    and we are not talking obscure micro craft brews:
    Miller Genuine Draft(EVERYWHERE in the 90's, now you almost have to special order it)
    Molson Ice
    Sapporo(pretty much only get it when i go eat japanese)

    but this is a probably a good thing since i have a psychological makeup that lends itself toward addiction.. i just channel that into more harmless stuff than booze/gambling like gaming/food
    Ponies not only make ME want to be a better person than I was before they entered my life, they make me want to HELP OTHERS be better people too.

    And that is a GOOD thing by any definition.

    I never liked beer or any kind of strong alcohol. If it tastes bad, there's no point in putting it in my mouth. Mixed drinks, fine. I only really drink wine coolers, since they basically just taste like a fruit punch type drink. Except now, I can't drink any alcohol anymore since it messes with my medication.

    Coconut flavored rum is clear, which is what I use to make coquito (one of my favorite mixed drinks of all time). Essentially the Puerto Rican answer to Egg Nog, only a billion times better in my opinion. :D

    They did that to Michael J Fox in the Back to the Future movie. Thought he was drinking water.

    As I'm a rum kind of pony, my brother prefers vodka. Screwdrivers are pretty simple, but quite refreshing on a warm night.

    Never tried a fireball.

    For me I had Gin and Lemonade mix like any gin-mixers for this year.
    Blue Moon for beer.
    I tried Brandy and turned out to be not what I expected. Mostly just sipping rubbing alcohol while sniffing perfumes.
    P.S.- Also anyone happened to see a Pony Banner for Hasbro in Toys That Made Us on Netflix?
