New technology is dangerous



You will not believe what I did.

After adding apps to my new Android tablet, I did a little browsing on Amazon. I was getting used to the much larger screen than on my iPhone 5s.

I created a new wishlist for gaming-related items. I added some minis,  some tools, the usual, but for some reason, one of the items didn't appear on the list when I checked it later. I figured I'd just screwed up the necessary keystrokes.

If only.

About 10 minutes later I get an email that the third-party Amazon vendor is preparing my order for shipment.

I'd hit the verdammten "Order with One Touch" button!

And what mini was it, you ask?

The effin' Woldwrath Gargantuan for Hordes' Circle Orboros. FML.



At least I got a good price on it and had a gift card waiting to be spent on my account.

And I immediately disabled one-touch ordering.

    1. My thinking as well. Hard to complain too loudly when it's something I've been ogling for so long.

  2. I'm going to try this one with my wife this afternoon. And as Michael says, that is a fantastic looking model. Looking forward to seeing it painted up :-)

    1. You know it, Bryan. My only regret is that, if I had my druthers, there were other, more relevant to my interest models I'd have purchased with that money.

  4. Oops! Still, at least it'll be a fun one to paint.

    1. Definitely. Although I'm not exactly looking forward to the cleaning-and-assembling stage. I hope my skills are up to it.

    1. How true. I really did luck out that if I had to make a mistake, this was a good one to make.
