    Getting To Know You July

    I made Black Forest cupcakes, ably assisted by my two-year-old helper. He approved of our work. Last baked thing that I ate was a little custard bun thing from the supermarket, they are about 60c each and very tasty.

    Getting To Know You July

    I have a tendency to binge. I binge a lot less now that I have to be careful what I watch in front of the boy. Three or four 40 minute episodes. Or, however long it takes for you to suddenly realise you've got work in six hours and you should probably get to bed.

    Kill Team

    GW has revealed a lot of new information about their new iteration of Kill Team on the Warhammer Community page. The boxed set: Whoo Genestealer Cult! Main points from the article: - Approximately 5-10 minis per team. - Similar but different to 8th edition 40K, including an alternating activation system. - Designed for matched play (tournaments), narrative play (campaigns), and open play (throw down some minis and go for broke). - Progression in campaigns involves skill trees. - To be expanded by Killzone sets (with a new board, terrain, and rules to represent a particular warzone) and Kill Team starter sets (with a squad of guys, a terrain kit and relevant faction-specific rules). - The previously teased Rogue Trader will be an expansion for this game. - This will be replacing Shadow War: Armageddon. Personally I'm pretty hyped for this. A 22"x30" board is very portable, the terrain looks ace, it's by the same rules team who did Shadespire, and having Genestealer Cult in the box makes me think there'll be a GC codex release to coincide with it.

    Kill Team

    I'm guessing it'll probably cost around the same as Necromunda, despite having the terrain that Necromunda didn't have, because they're using existing kits for the teams. If they included all-new kits in the box I'd expect it to be considerably more expensive, just like if they included this kind of terrain on the Necromunda box.

    Kill Team

    I can see why they'd use existing kits. Itmakes it an easier segue into full 40K; Genestealer Cult, Space Wolves and Orks are among the first factions being released for KT and are the next codex releases for 40K; and it's probably also a way of keeping the cost of the boxed set down with all of the new terrain that's going into it. I wouldn't be surprised if the Rogue Trader set comes with a terrain setup more like Necromunda, representing the interior of a Rogue Trader's ship, rather than a full 3D kit.

    RIP Steve Ditko

    Aww. Hell of a legacy to leave behind, though.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    There's a sort-of-workmate of mine (same organisation, different restaurant) who has started dating her eight-year-old son's father whom she had broken up with before she knew she was pregnant. Similarly, it's more of them getting to know each other again and approaching the relationship with a more mature attitude. Life takes funny turns sometimes.

    It turns out I'm slightly far-sighted in my left eye. So, I now have hobby glasses. I think I'm slowly turning into Ned Flanders.

    Hundreds. I have a lot of dwarfs.

    I'd like to try and create lighting effects. Not necessarily OSL, but also, uh... atmospheric lighting? Is that a thing? Painting a mini to look like it's in a certain environment. Not much chance for it this weekend. It's Sunday already and I'm working til 7, I'll be lucky to get any painting done at all and I should really be focusing on just getting stuff completed.

    Tabletop Minions - Uncle Atom's perspective on the hobby is similar to my own, except that he seems to be far more successful in applying himself. In any case, I usually look forward to his videos and I support the channel on Patreon. 2+ Tough - Doug is just... such a nice dude. He's got a real passion for introducing people to Age of Sigmar's Mortal Realms, and his videos really changed my mind on the background of the game. Also decided to support him on Patreon after realising that I'd viewed almost every video he'd produced. Warhammer TV - Let's face it, "New GW" have a great sense of humour, and regardless of how you feel about their products or prices they're definitely engaging with their fans. The new AoS "how to play" videos are very well done, too.

    It's actually not bad with something else to go with it, like on crackers with avocado or in a chip sandwich. But on its own... yeah, nah.

    Whatever jar it comes in, it's vile. Wife's the one who eats it in our house.

    I felt like doing some baking today, so the boy and I made some Black Forest cupcakes. And no, the jar of Marmite was not an ingredient in the cupcakes.

    My chief inspiration for mini painting is wargaming. I find it very hard to get into painting something unless I have a gaming purpose in mind. Otherwise, I'm inspired to paint certain genres by TV shows, movies, comics and video games.

    Ben Siens lizardmen. I picked up a whole army's worth from the factory bins at ReaperCon when I went a couple of years back, still need to get them started.

    Podcast recommendations?

    Not a podcast exactly, but I enjoy having the Tabletop Minions "Every Other Sunday" live stream playing while I potter around. I never catch it live because it's on at 2am on Monday morning here.

    MenhirGames: 28mm plastic set "Dark Age Outpost"

    Quietly glad I bailed on this one.

    Seems to come pretty highly recommended. I know Froggy has played it a fair bit of you want to pick his brain. One thing that stands out to me from what I've read is that to really get a sense of immersion in the game, you need to have appropriate miniatures and terrain. To that end I've snagged a set of cardboard western buildings from eBay for cheap until I can afford to buy a bunch of 4Ground ones.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Battle Kiwi have some nice MDF vertical paint racks that might help save on space, plus a portable paint station.

    New minis, terrain, or a wargame rulebook. Recently cashed in some brownie points with wifey to buy a new 3'x3' neoprene gaming mat. I'm looking at getting a couple of new rulebooks soon as well (Dracula's America and Gaslands), and possibly some post-apocalyptic shanties from Fogou models (I've accumulated a lot of brownie points).

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    So my son was playing with his letter magnets this morning, when suddenly... Should I be concerned?
  24. Could be a fun idea for a one-shot adventure, though. For a convention or something like that.

    Yay for paint! Sounds like Lucy's got some 'splainin' to do.
