Not a lot of figure painting going on lately (surprise, surprise!), but I have been working on a few hobby related bits and pieces…
Dave G., Kevin H., and I had a small Ronin game to learn (or in my case, relearn) the rules. It was useful, and I’m looking forward to playing a larger scale version for realz, now that we have a better idea of the mechanic. I think Dave and Kev enjoyed it, too, and hopefully there’ll be a bit of a samurai buzz.
Started painting the sci-fi/modern layout I put together last year. This will eventually form part of a Judge Dredd “Block”, but is designed to work with any sci-fi/modern game.
Picked up a 1/50 scale die-cast Land Rover Defender on eBay from a guy in Portugal. It was specced out for a fire department (bright red, blue lights on the roof, etc.), but I’m converting it to use as a UNIT vehicle for an eventual Dr. Who themed game.
…and the fulfilled temptation:
Dave G. spotted a really bargain priced WHFB Empire army on Kijiji locally and picked it up. Then he beat me up and made me buy it from him. 🙂
Been planning a Ronin game for a long time, aimed at folks who’ve not played it yet, and it’s finally going to happen this weekend. I have enough terrain and figs sorted out to run two small games at the same time, depending on how many folks turn up.
Been trying to get a game of Ronin going for a bunch of folks who are interested but have never played it… Looks like it’s going to happen in early April, so I’m using that deadline as an excuse to make some more Japanese terrain. Working on a 3×3′ base board ostensibly for a village, and a bunch of bamboo “forest”. Looking pretty good so far, I’ll post some pics when they’re done.
