Extra long weekend – along with getting my daughter moved into her new apartment (and spending a day building flat-pack furniture), I’m still working on WWII figs, but also trying to get some terrain sorted out for 40K and Shadow War: Armageddon. Finally doing something with a bunch of those Pegasus modular gothic kits that I picked up yonks ago…
Any of my spare time for the last two or three months has been spent preparing to write the “Certified Professional Technical Communicator” exam (which I wrote and passed [yay!] at the STC Summit conference a couple of weeks ago), so I haven’t been painting or working on anything hobby-related in a while.
Back to it, though. Planning on finishing up some WWII para’s before moving on to a Grey Knights kill team and terrain for Shadow War: Armageddon (aka GW’s latest version of “Necromunda”).
A big thank you to my friend Tim, who noticed that I’d made a post or two on Facebook looking for this, found one, and sent it to me.
I’d been looking for this figure for ages, and I’m genuinely touched by Tim’s thoughtfulness and generosity. Thank you!
I watched this video a couple of days ago:
and this is coming up:
So I guess I’ll haul a bunch of stuff out to flog.
I know you shouldn’t buy anything before christmas, but there were some good deals to be had. I’ve had parcels from Amazon, North Star, and Meeplemart turn up this week, including these two rulebooks:
Very keen on the the idea of Rogue Stars – will be digging through lead mountain to find a few good characterful sci-fi figs.
Merry christmas, all!
Finally arrived yesterday… 19lbs of Conan boardgame (including about 200 miniatures).
I was in Toronto for most of this last week, starting my new job (!), and wandered over to Meeplemart to do a bit of hobby shopping. The place is very well stocked – probably second only to The Sentry Box in Calgary.
I either managed to show remarkable restraint (unlikely) or else the walls of figs and games caused my eyes to glaze over and my “want list” to disappear completely from my mind. I came away with only a couple of blisters:
A pack of Khador Woodsmen, which I’m going to repurpose as Gypsies for a “His Dark Materials” themed Song of Blades and Heroes warband, and a pack of not-Space Wolf shoulderpads from Kromlech.
