Jorõgumo from 'Rising Sun' and Ashigaru from Perry Miniatures

We recently returned from a nice, long vacation and so I thought I'd catch up with some figures I had done since the last time I had posted.First up is this rather creepy-crawly lass, Jorõgumo, from the CMON game 'Rising Sun'. The kickstarter for this game was a few years ago and I quickly jumped in after enjoying its viking-themed predecessor 'Blood Rage'. Another thing that attracted me to the game was its fabulous miniatures.

This way we would hopefully play a few games multiple times. Less time spent teaching, more time spent playing! And it kind of worked! Important note: I thought I took lots of pictures of everything we played. This was not the case. I took a few pictures and none of them are all that great. I have something to strive for next year I guess. Friday We arrived at the cabin late in the afternoon of Friday. It’s in northern Wisconsin, so it was cold. We unpacked, grabbed some drinks, and started picking games to shiver through as t

Kupite našu igru, verovatno ćemo vam je poslati!

CMON je kompanija koja već neko vreme Kickstarter platformu koristi kao neki vid preordera i marketinškog trika kako bi sakupio ogromne svote novca koje će ušuškati uz postojeće brdo zelenih novčanica. Ovaj put bih preskočio priču o moralnim pitanjima vezanim za ovakav pristup platformi koja je tu, prvenstveno, […]
