Date a Live season 3

The hilarious harem anime is back in 2019, with the third season of the adventures of Shidou who has to seal spirit powers away by kissing them.It has been 5 years since the second season was aired, but it was worth the wait as it is just as comical as it's predecessors.The season actually has two arcs, and in the first a new spirit makes her appearance, a witch like one called Natsume.  Shidou is forced to save his friends from being erased to play in her magical game and to make her fall for him to seal her powers.But the second arc is the mainliner, as Origami, hellbound on destroying all spirits, becomes one herself.  However, when she finds out the truth about who actually killed them, Shidou is forced to travel back to the past with the help of Kurumi.  He manages to change history, but in doing so doesn't get the result he actually hoped for...And then there is the final episode where Shidou has to be the one to be swooned by the spirits...A good season with a lot of laughs, as the vario

No Game No Life 1 - Yuu Kamiya

Okay, I LOVE this anime, it's in my top 3 of best series together with Saint Seiya and Gundam.But unfortunatly, it only was adapted for a single season and a movie... so to know how the story continues, one needs the novels, manga's and spinoffs.In this fantasy world, everything's a game - and these gamer siblings play to win!Meet Sora and Shiro, a brother and sister who are loser shut-ins by normal standards.  But these siblings don't play by the rules of the "crappy game" that is average society.  In the world of gaming, this genius pair reigns supreme, their invincible avatar so famous it's the stuff of urban legend.So when a young boy calling himself God summons the siblings to a fantastic alternate world where war is forbidden and all conflicts - even those involving national borders - are decided by the outcome of games, Sora and Shiro have pretty much hit the jackpot.But they soon learn that in this world, humanity, cornered and outnumbered by other species, survives within the confines of on

Fate / Stay Night: Unlimited Blade Works season 1

So Noshi and me have finally started the whole Fate / Stay franchise, though it might not be chronologically on how we watch them...Because Netflix has only a few entries of the series so far, and we started with this one.The Holy Grail War is a battle royale among seven magi who serve as Masters. Masters, through the use of the command seals they are given when they enter the war, command Heroic Spirits known as Servants to fight for them in battle. In the Fifth Holy Grail War, Rin Toosaka is among the magi entering the competition. With her Servant, Archer, she hopes to obtain the ultimate prize—the Holy Grail, a magical artifact capable of granting its wielder any wish. One of Rin's classmates, Emiya Shirou, accidentally enters the competition and ends up commanding a Servant of his own known as Saber. As they find themselves facing mutual enemies, Rin and Shirou decide to form a temporary alliance as they challenge their opponents in the Holy Grail War. It's a lovely series, and I really li

Few commission D&D pieces

A fellow asked me to paint four D&D miniatures for him. I managed to finish two before heading out on holidays.First up is a human fighter with a flaming sword. Grey primer, block paint (with a bit of wet-on-wet) followed by a wash and seal.The sword looks better in person than it does in the picture (camera struggles with red tones, it seems).Second dude is a human fighter in fancy mail.Same technique minus the wet-on-wet. Good details so the wash really popped it.I also took the chance to base one of my own figures (RAFM Cthulhu) that I had painted awhile back but lost track of before completion.The WizKids figures are really nice to work with. I have two elf warriors presently underway and I hope to finish them up in the coming week.After than, I need to finish my 1812 rebasing (just need to get some static grass on).

Battle Companies Campaign - Threading the Needle

Being the penultimate installment (and final scenario) in the Battle Companies Campaign, where the Companies have crossed into Rhudaur on the trail of the fabled 'Needle' and tracked it down to the ruins of Caer Emwyn but this is also the lair of the brutal Troll.We randomly applied opponents with places being determined by a throw of the dice. Kenny's Easterlings were pitted against Kev's Warg Riders, Andy W's Mordor Orcs were up against Dave's Rivendell Elves and I ended up facing the might of Leigh's Hobbit horde.Our game was pretty quick and fairly brutal with myself (as the good opponent) gained the initiative and advanced as quickly as possible taking the flank to avoid the Troll with the best of my hero's and aimed for the nearest objective token and started flying at the Troll. Leighs Hobbits did likewise in a mirror image of my deployment and sent some off to deal with my rear guard, leaving a toke force at the rear to try and catch anyone that got past the Troll and the majority of his force headed

Durin's Folk Battle Company

The most recent battle company to roll off the table, and another one to go off the checklist of the forces that have to be painted up.The Dwarves in MESBG are your typical ones, small armoured tanks that compensate speed with survivability.The battle company as it starts out consists of 6 models, in the form of two each of dwarven warriors armed with a shield, a two-handed weapon and a bow respectively.And it now gives another option in the pool for the people wanting to learn how to play the game!

Pippin, Squire of Gondor

When arriving in the White City, Pippin pledged himself to the service of Denethor and became a squire of Gondor.And as such, I completed the old metal version of this model, ready to stand amongst the forces of Minas Tirith in my games of MESBG.While not the mightiest of heroes, this plucky little chap can't lead a warband of his own, but can be included in another band and add some might to the force for a cheap points ratio.I will put him (thematically) into Denethor's band as a result, and I hope he will prove his might (pun intended) as a result, especially in smaller scale games where the high tier heroes are generally absent anyways.  And at 30 points including his cloak, he is quite a bargain...Now to get some Guards ready to join this warband...
