A day out with geeks and chicks!

3 geeks driving 2 hours to meet up with the fourth geek. The mission....Putting some paint on miniatures, gaming and having fun! What better way to spend a Sunday!! WARNING! There will be a lot of pictures!!

Rainy, windy and grey. NOT stopping us! Morten picked me up and we went to pick Christian up. He fell asleep after half an hour driving, which was no problem as we had fun in the front seats! Could have asked for a bit better weather but it was not to be....

Finally arriving at Lina and Stefan`s place! Weirdly enough I never got a picture of her.... They are both fighting for animal rights. The hens they have are all rescued from the big egg industry. REALLY a poor state they get them in. Most of the ones pictured have been some time here. In freedom, able to make a nest, have a dustbath, stretching their wings, and actually have feathers!!!


Really amazing to see how curious they are and really loving. If you had food...You were their best friend! Hehe... From the last batch they saved, they have kept one of them. You see her in here with a small sweater on. Due to the fact that she had next to no feathers left! This is where your eggs come from.


At night she got to stay in the hallway in this box.

After a nice breakfast we got the miniatures and paints on the table. It really is quite enjoyable painting together. At times we did not say a word yet still enjoyed it.


No idea what the hell Morten is looking after on the last picture....

To say that Stefan was a little excited about playing a game of DUNGER DERBY....Would be putting it mildly! Dunger derby is a small fast paced game that I made the rules for. Last year as we played it Stefan won and we crowned him NÆSBY DUNGER DERBY CHAMPION. Næsby is where they live. And naturally this year...WE CHALLENGED HIM!!!


Trying to stay in control of your mad animal, guiding it through checkpoints, staying clear of traps, not running in to terrain and knocking themselves out, fighting the other players.....Madness? THIS! IS! DUNGER DERBY! And damn fun!

Accusations of foul play, loaded dice, magnets in the table, and in the scenery.... I would like to say that this game requires great skill. But then...That would be a blatant lie!!!  Still I am proud to say that I am the reigning NÆSBY DUNGER DERBY CHAMPION! At least untill next time!

 This box has nothing to do with the rest of this blogpost besides the fact that it is Lina and Stefan`s little metal box. I just thought it was cool! Thank you guys for a great day out!! Loads of laughter and we actually managed to put paint on some miniatures as well!

Big thanks for having us and for putting up with 4 geeks Lina!!!

  3. Yay! It was an awesometastic day, and both Lina and I really appreciate the kind words about our work for the hens.
    But mind you, Johnny: No amount of kind words can save you from being challenged next time!

  6. Sounds like a great day. However, I cannot agree with you about chickens: they are some of the most vicious, mean animals that we have ever owned. There's a good reason for the expressions "hen-pecked" and "at the bottom of the pecking order" :-) !
