  1. Saw Deadpool 2 tonight. If you liked the first, you should like the second.
  2. I'm rewatching Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure (which has held up quite well, 80's references aside), and now I want to run a game campaign where the PCs are time travelers who are attempting to fix the disruptions in the timelines caused by someone's history report. . ..

    I need to contact them about a missing Mule. But I should probably make sure that I have all the parts to my Hornet first, just in case.
  4. Working on a modular dungeon for RPGs. First test of the floor. Pieces interlock with small connecting pieces, to minimize shifting. Walls will attach using a similar slot and tab design. Each tile is 3" x 3".

    Gencon: The Loomining

    Usually someone from our group manages to do ok in the hotel lottery. We're not in our favorite location, but we're still in one of the walking distance hotels. I managed most of my events, which is nice. I like GenCon, but if I had to miss it, I could. AdeptiCon has been my go-to con for the past 5 years or so - much smaller, much easier, and the vendor hall is much friendlier to my wallet.

    MAY THE 4th Be With You!

    Stole this from somewhere, but I'm going to be posting it every year from now on.
  7. Finally got around to seeing Infinity War. Glad to see it, but the next year of waiting is going to be hard. Does help explain why a lot of the Disney/Marvel release schedule for the next few years is Untitled Marvel Film, Untitled Fox/Marvel Film, Untitled Avengers Film, Untitled Marvel Film, etc. Bet that, about this time next year, a lot of those movies suddenly gain titles.

    2018 Board Game 10x10 Challenge

    A little bit of necro to bring this back. As I said in the Acquisitions thread, I picked up three new board games today. Got the kids sat down tonight and played through Ghosts Love Candy. They enjoyed it, though my son is mad that I made a candy swap at the end of the game that cost him his victory.
  9. Our town has a small toy store that is closing its doors. (Only temporarily - they are looking for a new location, and planning on reopening in early fall.) In the meantime, they are clearing out their inventory, rather than put it in storage. So, I took advantage of their sale and picked up three board games: Ghosts Love Candy VivaJave Fire & Axe I also picked up the Skitarii half of Forgebane yesterday. I really should be painting minis, not buying new ones. . .
  10. I started a "One project at a time" resolution a few months back. I think I'll make sure to include some of the really old stuff in the rotation - the projects that I started, but never finished. They'll actually get done, and it will help me keep my resolution.
  11. Osprey just released Gaslands, and since I have been a sucker for automobile combat games ever since I discovered Car Wars back in the 80s, I had to get it. I already had some cars (courtesy of Warlands) - now I just need to convert them and build some terrain. I knocked out the masters and molds of these yesterday, and now I have some resin terrain to put on the table.

    Godtear - Steamforged Games

    They're doing some of the champions and followers as individual groups. I suspect that when it hits retail, you will see champion packs or something similar.

    April 2018 Hobby Goals!(I'm Back Brushes!)

    When I got back from AdeptiCon, I looked at my painting desk. I had packed up a bunch of paints, brushes, minis, etc, and, while it was not clean (not by a long shot!), it actually looked like a usable space for a change. I looked at the desk, looked at the pile of new acquisitions, looked at the desk, looked at the pile, and decided that I was going to keep the desk fairly empty. (Well,. actually, I resolved to keep cleaning stuff off it, but. . . ) I am currently trying to limit myself to one project at a time - more specifically, one unit at a time. I will pick a unit from a game, work on it for up to 1 week, and then decide to keep working on it, or put it away and switch to something else. If I finish early, I get to choose something, but the same "1 at a time" applies. (The only exception is basing - I can do simple basing of stuff while waiting for washes to dry, so I am trying to clear a backlog of stuff that needs to be based before I go much further anyway). I finished up a test squad of Stormtroopers for Legion, and am now trying out some pico scale Soviets.

    Gaslands terrain

    Decided I wanted 3D templates, and I'm working on some more terrain. Need to make another of these car piles, and maybe a couple small shacks to go with them, or some other flavor of scatter terrain.
  15. A buddy of mine and I became enamored with the idea of picoarmor for big battles while we were at AdeptiCon, and we just each bought about a dozen blisters of various tanks, APCs, etc. That may not sound like much, but pico stuff is packaged at 15 models/blister. My share is: 2S19 Msta (15 pcs) BM-30 Smerch (15 pcs) T-72 (15 pcs) T-80UD (15 pcs) T-90 (15 pcs) Mi-28N Havoc (8 pcs) T-72A (15 pcs) T-80B (15 pcs) 2S1 Gvozdika ACRV 2 (12+2 pcs) BMP-3 (15 pcs) My buddy bought US stuff, and he has some planes, but I had already picked up a bunch of MiGs and SU variants, so I'm set for now. Good thing this stuff will paint quickly though. . .
  16. AdeptiCon did bad things to my bank account. I'm going from memory here, but I bought the Star Wars Legion Core set, a Rebel Speeder, and an AT-ST. I also bought back into Wild West Exodus (backed the KS because I loved the figs and lore, dumped it several years later because I did not like the first ed rules) - picked up the 2 player starter, Legendary Lincoln and the Union Starter. Picked up 2 blisters of Lanceros and some ships accessories for my Blood & Plunder collection. Grabbed Cato for Arena Rex. Got the 2nd ed rules for SAGA and the Viking Age book, plus a 4 pt Viking warband from Footsore, 3 blood eagles, a viking priest, 12 roman levies, and 20 roman numeral dice. And the Cold War rules for Air Power, plus about 12 blisters of assorted WW2 Soviet armor and cold war era MiGs. And I'm pretty sure that I am missing a few things here. . . . . but it's also not including the VIG swag bag stuff that I got.

    Gaslands terrain

    I have a couple metal bikes from the Warlands range somewhere in the basement, and I might be able to dig them up. Found one bike from Dark Future, and one of the cars. I have plenty of weapons (well, like a dozen, maybe) - more than I can put on the one car, so they are going on some others. I waffle between aiming for things that look kind of realistic, and going all goofy and hog wild on them. I'll probably do both styles along the way.

    Gaslands terrain

    Realistically, I would only count 1 car as being mostly done, though another 4 or 5 are pretty close. I plan on sitting down and building about 10 cars and painting them over the weekend, as well as painting up a bunch of terrain. But 10 cars is probably only about 1/5 of the ones I have bought so far. I will probably take a bunch of cars with me and root through the bitz bins at one of the vendors at AdeptiCon, and look for interesting parts in the bitz trading so that I can make more cars while I am there.

    Gaslands terrain

    Yeah, me too. I know some people have been 3D printing ones they found on thingiverse, but I do not have a 3D printer, and my efforts to sculpt one so far have been, well, bad. Huh, not sure how that double quote happened. . . .

    Gaslands terrain

    Got them painted up. Want to have 8-10 cars and a fully painted tables worth of terrain for some pick-up games at AdeptiCon next week.

    Gaslands terrain

    Decided that I needed some taller walls. These will do double duty and show up in other games, because they are tall enough to serve as cover in 28mm stuff too.
  22. I'm interested. I've been cleaning out surplus gaming stuff in the basement - if it goes well, I can afford to back it. If not, I will probably have to give it a miss.

    Robotech RPG Tactics - Palladium

    So, now I am wondering if Palladium is going to make an appearance at AdeptiCon this year. The cynic in me says they will, and either dump a bunch of junk into the swag bags (and not tell anyone that they are worthless) or hold a fire sale on RT stuff and sell it for much less than it is valued for the "refund". Or both.

    Hitting the big 40

    I didn't mind turning 40. It meant that I was now running in the Masters category, and no longer running against a bunch of 18 year olds. (Not that I am winning races anyway, but now I can look at them and say "Meh, not my age category.) I still operate under the delusion that I am someday going to get everything painted, but that has nothing to do with age, and everything related to by desire to live forever or die trying.
