Default When people break your models

just yesterday. my mum broke my prized commissar. the best model I've ever converted and painted. now she refuses to buy some superglue so i can fix it because she's too busy.

ever had this kind of situation before? I'm unbelievably annoyed, and really need to punch something/one

It happens to my all the time. My little brother always plays with my Crisis and Broadside Suits, and breaks their ankles. I hate it. I feel like putting on a leather mask, grabbing the rusty chainsaw, and chasing after someone when they break one of my models.

In that case, so is sex. Therefore, pornstars and prostitutes are professional athletes.

I find I can usually keep the locals in line with a barrage of threats

My mom laughs off threats. Well she did untill I 'accidentally' broke her wooden flower she loved.

But then I had to super glue it back together. So I was still mad in the end :P

Mu mum sat on 400pts of Dark Eldar and only about 6 models survived, but that was when they first came out!
My sister claimed that my Kharn the Betrayer model's axe "fell off". :P

Well, for storage my models are safely esconed in a corner of the garage, away from everyday activity. (I clean my own stuff up, so even in my room this would not be a problem)

Now, I've had plenty of models jostled off the table and broken, especially flying crisis and drones. Fw's and kroot just bounce. ;D

If my friend does it (usually who it is) then it's no biggie. I just glue it back together again, perhaps repainting if neccessary. I know that I'll probably end up doing the same to some model of his when it's on the edge, and we both know it's accidental, so there's rarely a problem.
