Home is where the Steampunk Is


If you look at this house and want to live in it, I bet we would get along.

I know it's sort of unfair for one family to have so many awesome people in it, but my parents somehow managed it. I have brothers that have more talent in their pinky than I have in my whole body. There are days when I get sort of egotistical and feeling good about my corsets, and then I see stuff like this and think," Wow....or not?" My older brother makes these houses out of resin and then he and his lovely wife paint them to look like the magnificent specimens you see before you! If you're unsure of what their purpose is, I'll gladly educate you! There is a game called Warhammer, and LET ME TELL YOU, the guys that play it are SUPER HOTTIES! (I only say this because my brothers play it.) and these are miniature landscape pieces that are used in the game. There are cheap plastic landscape props you can buy, and then there is the high-end ones, such as these.
I'm MOSTLY excited because my brother Dana came out with his steampunk houses which are freaking adorable! (okay, I KNOW that I shouldn't use that word! I'm sorry, gentlemen!) and I want to buy one of each and just keep them on my mantlepiece......if only I had a fireplace. Anyhow, I just wanted to show you guys this and let you know that you're welcome to pimp it out to any of this type of gamer that you might know! :) Here's the website! Take a look at the other GORGEOUS little houses!

  10. I've never played the game but I knew someone who played it. He would always talk to me about his game pieces and game stories and stuff.

    The house is AWESOME though! All the little details... I am impressed by it. Your family is full of awesome, indeed! Adopt me? :P
