Some gaming goodness came out of my business trip to Salt Lake City. I came across these little gems at a comic book store. Yeah, they're worse for wear, but for $10 a pop, it was worth it to retroactively soak in the thrill of Games Workshop's golden era, which I regrettably missed, due to my hobby detour into Magic: The Gathering.
A few Kickstarters arrived in the mail this week. First, the Infamy One-Shot. An awesome, limited edition, goblin cavalry rider. I can't wait to have this guy lead the charge of my various goblin wolf-riders and chicken-riders.
Here are some new stencils by Anarchy Models. I especially look forward to trying out the mottled pattern.
I've been hosting a weekly Hobby Hangout every Thursday using Google Hangouts, ever since I moved down to Huntsville a year ago. A week ago, Kat, one of my recent attendees took the concept and cranked it up to 11, creating a Facebook Group called Hobby Hangout, which offers hobbyists around the world the option to create and/or join a Hangout at any time!
Since my work-trip caused me to miss my own Hangout this week, I was itching to paint this weekend, and I joined a couple of sessions of the Facebook Hobby Hangout on Saturday.
In my first session, I just wanted to warm up, so I worked on one of many goblins in my backlog. This guy is one of three artillerymen who man the Goblin Spear Chucka. He ended up serving double-duty as my new Apprentice for my Frostgrave game on Sunday!
In the second Hobby Hangout session, I worked on Sakana for Guild Ball. I had painted his face last week. Here, I did some color-sketching and some base-coats on the rest of the model. Still needs plenty of work.
On Sunday, I joined a 3-player game of Frostgrave.
|An enemy warband of Mouselings. Look at those evil little bastards, with their beady red eyes.|
|Don't let their "cuteness" fool you. They're killy little bastards.|
|"Die, evil little Mouseling!"|
|A "model's-eye view" from my goblin archers.|
|Unfortunately, this misguided hound stood between me and my treasure.|
|The "dead pool" near the end of the game. Barely any Wizards or Apprentices survived the game.|
