This weekend I have my Necromunda gaming weekend coming up and have been working feverishly to try and get everything ready for that. Despite that, I've already been casting an eye towards what's coming next... For the last... well... decade (or MORE!?), I've generally tried to come up with a PLAN for the year. You can see them in the labels off to the left there, Starting with Game Plan 07 (of course the labels include updates and addendum throughout the year, so if you click on one, you're likely to get the last update first and have to scroll through a few pages to find the original plan - although the last one might be a "Year in Review" post, which will usually include a link to the initial plan...). While I absolutely believe that it is always good to have a plan, I've been finding, however, that it's getting harder and harder to stick with one plan for an entire year. It's been harder to gauge what will hold my (and the family's collective) interest - hence the regular addendum! I've been thinking that
Over the long weekend we all sat down to go over our clandars and sort out schedules for school and work and other activities and appointments and such. Looks like it’s going to be a busy fall and winter with all the extra yoga and dance and music and theatre classes lined up. Keira is taking six - SIX! – dance classes and volunteering at another for dancers with special needs! Both kids are taking Improv. Amanda and I are both taking two dance classes (Irish for me, a Burlesque Group dance class for Amanda and we’re taking a Ballroom Dance class together!)… Cello… violin… Amanda’s teaching FOUR regular yoga classes… it’s a little crazy!We did manage to set aside a few times a week for games, though – mostly on the weekends!GAMESFriday Night is Boardgame night – Ostensibly a FAMILY boardgame night, but I’m not forcing anyone to play. The idea is to pick a game we’ll play on Friday evening, see who is interested in playing, if the kids aren’t I’ll see if other friends are interested. I’ve decided to further re
It is, of course, the height of ridiculousness to think I could make a plan for what I'm going to paint ALL YEAR and expect I would actually stick to it.... ALL... YEAR.... I do recognize, however, that it is good to have SOME kind of plan and that I'm generally far more productive if I have a plan and am, more or less, sticking to it.I was looking, recently, at the 2019 Painted Versus Purchased page I have listed over on the right under "Pages" and had a good look at the "Things I'd Like to Paint in 2019" list. Here is what was on that...Reaver Battle TitanRedemptionist Necromunda GangImperial Knight PaladinImperial Knight WardenRatskin Necromunda GangCawdor Necromunda GangBattle Sisters (~15 if them to finish off)Tallarn (LOADs to do)Valhallans (LOADs to do)Craftworld Eldar (LOADs to do) - working on it!Harlequins (Two Troupes and an Troupe Leader)Grey Knights (Two Strike Squads and Castellan Crowe)Drukhari Battalion (LOADs to do)Rogue Trader Crew - Elucidian Star StridersGellerpox MutantsBlacksto
The BPRD is on the case! Hellboy, Liz Sherman, Johann Krauss and Abe Sapien are set to adventure into the unknown in this six-game series using the base-game for Mantic’s new 1-4 player Co-Operative adventure game!
Well I had hoped to finish off the Battle of the Denfeld Wastes this morning, but we kind of got distracted by the arrival of a rather big box in the mail...Well, what have we here...?Yup, that's our Hellboy: The Board Game Kickstarter from Mantic GamesDespite the enormity of the box it seems a little on the small side (as we'd gone all in and ordered the Box Full of Evil add-on...)Now the deal was, we were to squirrel this all away until December and it was to be our collective family Xmas gift to each other... (though I'm allowed to take minis out and paint them over the summer and fall so that they're all painted when we open it on Xmas and then get to spend the holiday week playing through the various scenarios!)Took it upstairs and spread it out on the desk extension next to the computer to check and see if everything was included...Yup, no Box Full of Evil contained in this gigantic box o' stuff... so disappointing....Coming Soon to Tim's Miniature Wargaming Blog:Hopefully PART TWO of the Battle of the
Along with about eleven thousand other people, I backed Mantic Games Hellboy The Board Game on Kickstarter. Without further ado, let’s pop open this huge box and see what’s inside. The Box Opening the huge [...] The post Hellboy – The Board Game appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.
