I love the gaming hobby, and have amassed quite a horde of painted stuff over the years. I display as much as I can - trying to find a spot that is nice, safe, logical, and within domestic-approval zoning. I figured the second story of our little house was safe enough...so imagine how great it felt to come home after a week long vacation to find this upstairs:
Some back story - our house is 80+ years old, and following ice-damming issues and rain-leaking-into-the-house issues, we opted for a brand new roof. New shingles. New insulation. New decking. New everything, right down to the studs. While I was away, I received a cryptic call from the roofing supervisor that a guy had "slipped, damaging the ceiling, but nothing inside".
Well, it could have been a lot worse, but the tally for this little slip (all painted stuff) is one 40k Stormblade damaged (bizarrely, one of the side turrets is missing - I think they knocked it off, and sucked it up in the clean up), four 40k Chimeras damaged, three 40k Leman Russ tanks damaged, and two Gün Scwharm tanks damaged.
The damage was primarily chips in the paint, and then little frizzy bits of spray insulation which came through the hole and stuck to the models. And the missing turret on the Stormblade...at least they did not totally destroy any stuff. Still, that little note on the inside decking did not really make me feel better.
