Back In the Saddle

Posted on August 15th, 2017 under , , . Posted by

It’s been a while since I’ve had a free moment to work on any personal projects or post anything to my blog. For the last two months my time has been occupied solely with finishing scenery commissions. If you attended Lock and Load you may have seen the buildings I made for Privateer Press: (More on these in an upcoming post.)

 

 

If you are going to Gencon, you’ll be able to see more of my handywork– Some scenic demo boards for the Fantasy Flight booth, and a big display for Warcradle Studios. (I can’t spoil these yet, but they are pretty cool.) I’ll post plenty of pictures once the displays have been debuted at the shows.


In my previous post, I gave my opinion of the new edition of Warhammer 40K. Since then, the new Space Marine codex has dropped, but I have yet to get it or even even clip a single part off of a sprue from my starter set. There’s also a new Path to Glory rulebook, and a new General’s Handbook for Age of Sigmar, which GW just announced will be available for pre-order this weekend. They have also announced a re-release of the classic game Necromunda.


There’s so much going on in just the GW hobby, (not to mention the new edition of Flames of War that I keep pretending I’ll play someday) that it’s nearly impossible to concentrate on any one thing. Focusing on one of those games and models with any significant level of commitment means neglecting the rest. And on top of it all, I’m still building new scenery kits for Skull Forge Scenics. Well, here are my thoughts and plans for everything:
