As part of the anniversary month at Worlds at War, they have arranged a demonstration weekend. I’ll be on hand both days to show off Warmachine/Hordes, while David will be there demonstrating Malifaux. We are also hoping to have Pyre Studio’s on one of the days, showing of a couple of their games. In my own interests I am looking for them to bring Bushido; which they now stock. I’ll get those Bushido models finished, I will; before next weekend too.
Anyway, Livingston Battleground are looking at bringing down their new game Warfleet, as well as Battlefleet Gothic. There will hopefully be Urban Wars along; to show off the revised and updated version of this game. We should also have space for gamers themselves to bring down games, to show off or teach others the basics. The point of the weekend, is to bring together gamers; perhaps even show them there are other games out there to try.
Not had time to post these last few days, as I have had some time sensitive commissions for the weekend to be completed. On Tuesday, I was given two Cyclops Savages from the Skorne Warpack to pin and assemble. Later I was asked to paint two of the Malifaux models, being used for a demo table at Skirmish this weekend.
In some ways the Savages were the easier of the two, as it was just assembly; no painting required. That said, I find it very difficult to hold three pieces in place; while trying to make sure they line up correctly. I appreciate costs and ease of manufacture, but I hate with a passion; having two arms and a weapon as separate pieces.
Anyway it’s done and they are happy with the results. That was Tuesday night, Wednesday and Thursday was painting Nicodem and Mortimer from Malifaux. While I love doing display level models, they are time-consuming; for me personally. I am sadly a perfectionist, also very critical of my work. I am not happy with the complete look of Mortimer, though the painting is good. Nicodem on the other hand, is great; I loved painting this one.
I’ve uploaded the pictures to Battle Dragon’s Photobucket account, the photo’s as usual don’t help; so if you fancy looking at them in person. They will be on display at Skirmish this weekend.
I have included Battletech, as the recent 25th Anniversary boxset does meet the criteria I set. The other one is Dust Tactics, while there are only two factions (Allies/Axis) the boxset does contain all you need to get started. What about the price, I hear you crying. Dust Tactics boxset is nearly £60, but considering you get two armies; this works out with the criteria equivalent of £30 per army.
I am sure there are many more out there, so if you know of them; let me know. 30 minutes isn’t long, but if your willing to put the time into it; you can find a whole host of games to try.
About a month ago, I mentioned this podcast; which I am working on with David. Well through various delays and complications, we have finally got the first episode out there. This was recorded about a month ago, hence why there is some parts that appear out of date. That said, we hope you enjoy it, feel free to leave feedback and comments.
