Walking out the door to run my first 2013 tournament, fully loaded with 3 bags and a laptop; I wind up flat on my back and in agony from slipping on the 2mm ice sheet covering the path. Sadly this unplanned activity lands me in A&E (ER for our American readers), where I am poked, x-ray’d and sent home with painkillers.
From what I remember of it, I went full horizontal; coming down hard on my back just between the shoulder blades. At least that is the area, that is hurting the most this morning. I have to thank PG Kallas (Tom), for stepping in at the last second to run his first official tournament as a PG. Hopefully I can return the favour for him one day. Painting wise, I might be a little slower; but I am stubborn enough to meet my target of painting all my Dystopian Wars for the 9th February.
Yep, the painting bug has returned. Now that the fun projects are out of the way, I can get back to my usual WM/H painting. Though having said that, I seem to have taken up a new game; something called Dystopian Wars?
There are a number of players now at Worlds at War, so seeing as I am putting Malifuax to bed; I need something to take it’s place. Frank the owner of Worlds, offered to give me a demo; which is always fatal for me. So the following week I walked out with the Russian Coalition Naval starter set.
In between another (super secret project), I am painting them slowly for a tournament on the 9th February. Yes 2 games into the game and I am up for a tournament, what can I say; I love to challenge myself. Anyway, here are the first pics of the Tiny Flyers, with sea and basecoat of Vallejo (Model Colour) Medium Sea Grey.
Ok, you’re probably thinking I have finally lost it. What has buses got to do with WM/H? Well it’s all to do with the old say “If you wait long enough, three will come along”, or at least something like that anyway.
Having just finished the April Annihilation event, I am now working feverishly on the Worlds Gaming Day event. As this is a charity event, I have started to look for donations for a raffle or something similar; so we can raise even more money for the chosen charity of the British Legion. Only just started today, but already we have a donation offer from someone; who we will reveal shortly.
There is still time to get tickets for this event, no matter what system you play; as there is going to be Flames of War, Warmachine/Hordes and WH 40K. Just head over to the Worlds at War website for more details.
