What is a Roof Rat's Favorite General?

Posted August 20th, 2014 at 09:42 PM by Mossman
Why would I ask such a question? Well, let me tell you.

The back room off my garage is my work room/gaming room where I display my 'Scape collection on several shelves. Recently I found evidence of the presence of a roof rat. What's a roof rat? All you need to know is: they're huge, they leave droppings the size of breath mints, and they carry lots of lovely diseases.

After failed attempts at humane trapping, I put out some D-Con, and returned from a trip to be greeted by an odor that proclaimed the rat had died somewhere in my room. I finally discovered its nest underneath a set of storage cabinets and what did I find? The rat had carried off more than a dozen of my 'Scape figures, plus some custom terrain bits and other minis! (I'd noticed some figures were knocked down or out of place, but I figured my daughter had been playing with them.)

What was the tally?
- 8 MacDirk warriors plus 1 custom Highlander
- 3 Gorillanators
- Kursus (apparently, roof rats like C3V)
- 3 Knights of Weston
- 1 Templar Cavalry (with lance gnawed off)

So, by a margin of 12 to 4, roof rats prefer Jandar over Vydar.

Just thought you'd want to know.

Now, off to find some Lysol to clean my minis.

That's quite a collection your rat had.

rats are really smart. Maybe with a little bit of a patience and training, you could have taught him to play Scape....
