So I got home from work, and some how my show case models were knocked over and a few missing, on a shelf that was 6 feet high. In the kitchen were peices. My new puppy got to, 2 war walkers a wriathlord and vyper beyond repiar. Im waiting for the vyper to come out his other end. My buddys would like to incorperate my dog in thier list. HA HA So 2 heavy weapon choices and a fast attact gone, $150 gone, Time converting and painting gone.

So how many pionts for a 22lbs Blue Aussie/ border collie?

I say a least 800 since that how much an Eldar titan goes for

We've been considering using my friends cat as a Heirophant in his 'nid list for some time to bring him up to a decent size apocalypse list.

my puppy ate a couple of bare minis I was about to work on... I'd have been furious had they been in the painting process or finished, just a little while ago. But cats are worse for this I think. They're more able to get into your out of reach safe zone, for your minis, and they have that way of slowly pushing something off the edge of a shelf or table, one millimetre at a time

5k points minimum. A puppy could easily chew up several Reavers before dying from intestinal rupture.

I hope your puppy is ok!

My sympathies.

I baby-sat a puppy a little while ago that munched up a few pewter OOP Necrons. They were painted up pretty well, too. Since then, I've filed down the bumps where the teeth-marks were and filled in the holes with liquid green stuff. I pinned the legs of the damaged Tomb Spyder back together and resculpted some minor details. Now they're all awaiting paint. Not quite good as new, but pretty darn close.

Can you do anything similar with your titan? Are you sure it's beyond repair?

I don't even think the puppy would die! It would just pass the now incoherent pieces of resin, and one would be left with the horrible task of cleaning up the mess... and playing the easter egg hunt to see if anything useable survived the passage through the eye of terror

Ah, pets and Warhammer, always a fun topic. The store I play at has two live-in security guards, aka cats. Often times one of them will hop on to a table and make herself comfortable. On the rare occasion my foe is likewise too lazy to move her we've his cat hanger (http://t0.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcT88tL3sCh2Hsv35foRkHZZrunzFduNv SkT7utMABUtdTgA12rjLmCFDHaYig) under the cushions. I've lost entire squads off my desk only to find them in the cat's hanging lair, but protected thanks to the fiddly bits poking through the netting. One of these days I will lose parts if it continues, but I'm hoping to teach my cat how to play before that day so he knows not to break my/our stuff.

I once had a hamster stuck in a land raider. Had to cut him out with a pair of clippers.

You could always just rename your puppy "Slaanesh".

Or, you could have just left it in there to represent Daemonic Possession.

My Dachshund would better be used representing impassable terrain. All he does is sleep.

There's nothing quite like priming your models, only to realize that they were actually covered in cat hair.

Wait a minute. You mean the cat hair isn't part of the original model? When did this happen? I thought miniatures were packed in cat hair to protect them in shipping.

In all seriousness, being owned by a cat has trained me into checking for and removing cat hair as soon as I bring the models outside to be base coated. The rare times I do this at my local store I am genuinely surprised at the lack of cat hair, kind of like if there was no flash on a model straight from the package.

Double ouch!

Ouch for you - at the loss of your models/money/time/effort.

Ouch for your dog - when he poops out that vyper!

My cat knocked my WIP Scorpion super-heavy tank off a shelf. It shattered. This was 2 years ago.






It... it still hurts, man...

My chinchilla stared down a dreadnought and then attempted to fight it. (fotunately it was an assault on black reach dread that laughed at being kicked off the desk.)

Around my house, It's Husky hair.

He should be bald by now considering how much hair we find throughout the house.....

I had a Land Raider chewed up by a dog. Luckily I hadn't put too much work in it as it wasn't painted and not fully assembled and most of the damage was only to one corner. Still though, the attack made it basically impossible to use for a normal Chaos/Marine army so I have since passed it and all of the chewed off and twisted bits to my brother-in-law to convert to Nurgle since that is the only way it could be useful again...

Start/expand an Ork army and there is a beautiful start to a looted wagon or battle wagon. Say it was attacked by a giant squigoth and repaired in typical green skin fashion.

One weekend when I was staying at a friends house we left our game in progress, space marines vs chaos space marines and went to sleep. His cat never bothered us while we were playing so we didn't think anything of leaving our models out.

When I woke up the next morning I found myself with a lap full of space marines, land raider on the floor, and speeders all knocked over. On the table, none of my friends chaos models had been touched. I conceded the match and we concluded that his cat was a greater daemon of tzeentch.
