Thanks on both counts! I love the nomads and the fact that they're relatively cheap too is a real bonus

So somewhat extended birthday, spent Friday with parents - bottle of excellent whisky (lagavulin single 16 yo, very peaty), coffee, lovely grub out (normality!) AND forbidden fortress (they're well trained, it's only taken 40 years )

In the meantime, a little hobbying done also

These are the Spectral Beings from Forest of the Dead, and though it's an Asian-setting expansion, as the pistol suggests it can be crossed over with the old West. However, you can't have Asian fantasy without... Ninjas!


And finishing off the last of the Otherworld enemies:

Flesh Drones, for the Derelict Ship of Otherworld. My favourite base is the one where I've use a toy car wheel as a fan.

And on a whim...

Uroourrurrurrurr!

Fun bits and bobs to do. Got the urge to get on with stuff, though who knows what will be next?

Oh, it's a glorious romp! The model shots and concept sketches alone are fascinating, along with all the background information - really interesting to see how DiLaurentis wrestled with the US system, for example. Well worth getting if you are a fan.

Theophony wrote:Ninjas and Banthas in the same post, I must have wandered back into the world of Graven, ever eclectic, ever excellent .

Well I suppose that's one way to look at it

On we go into FoFo! A productive couple of evenings were spent building most of the models from Fortress, Temple and various expansions. The plastics are generally very impressive, much better quality than the old plastics or indeed resins. Quite a lot are however disappointingly monopose, though the Oni and tengu at least withstood a little reposing with a minimum of effort. First up, a character model, the Kabuki:

He's the alt sculpt for the Geisha (an eBay cheapie score) rather than from the core boxes per se.

A little freehand cherry blossom. Need to sort my photography out.

I should really clear my SW backlog, my printed Bodhi and Dr Aphra have been sitting on my desk for an age. Good to keep mixing it up

Other news, well, Mantic have officially announced OVERDRIVE, which is their new giant monster smackdown game that I helped playtest. It's a lot of fun and I'm really looking forward to seeing it in the flesh.

Gearing up to go away Friday for a week, staycation but much needed. Hopefully get some games in. Also hottub

Nice freehand on Mr kabuki there. I think Brimstone suffers from great ideas, but variable implementations in the sculpts. The spirits and bandits for example are terribad, but the fofo dragon is fantastic. Not gw quality detail, but fun to paint

That's very fair. Not seen the bandits yet (assuming you mean japanese ones?) but spirits look poor - assuming that's the ones with the undead phoenix. Looking forward to that and the dragon getting retail release, that I might get ALL THE TOYS!

Much appreciated mate, that was a deliberate choice but I was really unsure if it worked. I like it but understand it won't be to everyone's taste.

At the halfway point of the year. Hobbying has kinda stalled, at least in terms of finished product, for a number of reasons: building all the FoFo, getting ready for holiday, getting house sorted for puppy. Despite this, I'm aiming to enter not but two painting contests this month Rise to Resin's 50 Shades of Lass (buy a mystery box, get assigned a colour, paint!) and Dark Elf Dare's As Above, So Below (paint either something flying or demonic or both - good excuse to get a Goblin Airship!)
I'm nearly at 600 figs for the year, though, so I reckon I can have a wee breather
Still, hoping for much board games antics in the coming week

Oh god no, I mean the bandits from the original settlement expansion... those are some terribad figures. The undead phoenix is a really nice model as well, as are the spirits that come with it. I mean the ghosts from the forest expansion and the spirits with lanterns... both are just *chunky* and look like they should be metal, rather than something that can be achieved with plastics these days.

where are those two painting challenges?

Oh, yes, they're dreadful. If I didn't have so many things to paint I'd print some better bandits, I have a good stack of STLs saved for that very purpose. I agree about the spirits but I don't mind the ghosts as much. My other gripe with Forest of the dead is there should be more scope for encountering other types of undead. Oh, and that you don't get a Nure-onna Sorceress model. Cheapskates. I really want a carrion phoenix. Damn you flying frog and your erratic release schedule!
Painting challenges both on Instagram, as I avoid the book of face these days.

A little pre holiday WIP, working on some Rebel Scum:

Cerean Trooper, printed Bodhi Rook, Slicer (hacker) with vibro blades (hehehe), Cybered Brawler, and grizzled Smuggler. IA has some truly great, characterful sculpts, for star wars or Stargrave or whatever, really.

Off on holiday now... Forgot the firestick send help ...

This is the way
Ain't nothing cool about brexit but we celebrated you colonials in the most appropriate fashion: Tex mex pancakes, beer and BBQ.

A quiet week, enjoying the rain of a British summer holiday So this week we've been playing some wee family fun games.

221B BAKER STREET
The venerable 221b has been around in various forms since the 70s but the current version takes you through 75 cases around Holmes's London. At its core, it plays like a slightly more complex - but less arbitrary - version of Cluedo, as you go round uncovering clues from various locations from the Newsagents to the Docks, Scotland Yard to the Locksmiths, and so on. Clues can be straightforward or cryptic, helping you gradually figuring out (typically) murderer, weapon and motive, before racing back to 221B to solve the case! With some genuine strategy, particularly in the endgame, it's great fun with older kids (my teenager does so enjoy beating me) but crucially also has a cooperative mode where you work together as the Baker Street Irregulars - meaning younger children, or those less inclined to be competitive, can be fully involved. Although sometimes the clues are a little vague, this nevertheless makes for a truly great, accessible family experience.

QUIRK
Quirk is a fun twist on Charades with a dash of Uno, where you try to collect sets of animals or people by doing impressions of them (lion, robot...) The grey cards are a bit harder (llama, yeti...) and the special cards allow you to steal, block or otherwise change the game. Great fun, and just as good for 5 year olds as 65 year olds.

ON A SCALE OF ONE TO T-REX
Continuing the Charades variants, this game from the makers of Exploding Kittens is less about the guessing and more about the performance: everyone knows what you're trying to act out, it's the Intensity that is being guessed. It's a good twist, especially for those of us who aren't quite as theatrical, and certainly lends itself to a casual drinks and boardgames vibe. The kids enjoyed it too, though, so it's good to mix things up especially if you don't mind feeling foolish. Quite noisy this one! On balance, Quirk is I think the better family game, but this lends itself well to grown up nonsense.

OK PLAY
This is an absolute staple in our house and goes everywhere with us - tiny, portable, comes with a handy carabiner for bags, extremely simple but fiendishly complex. It's essentially a take on Connect 4 minus the rack: you alternate tile placement on a table aiming to connect 5 before the other players - yes, you can play this with up to 6 (which frankly gets a bit bonkers, but still). With many different set colours available, and in 2 or 4 player versions, it's the king of travel games. It's worth mentioning that Big Potato, who make this, also have a ton of print and play games available free! Good stuff all round.

RAILROAD INK: CHALLENGE EDITION Railroad Ink is a roll and write where the dice feature train tracks and roads in various combinations and layouts, and you aim to make the most complete set of routes you can on the drywipe boards provided. Highly portable, the challenge not only comes from the routes themselves but also completing Goals that change every game as quickly as possible. There are two core editions of the base game, Lush Green and Shining Yellow, each of which contains an expansion for variety: Lush Green allows you to build hiking trails through the forests, whilst Shining Yellow runs routes across the desert. Both are a lot of fun, but we went for Lush Green simply because it appealed more. You can of course double up core sets, which increases from 4 to 8 players, and there are the two previous Core Sets Blazing Red and Deep Blue (volcanoes and lakes respectively) which are also compatible, although don't include the Goals mechanic which is a key highlight in the game's competition. Mini expansions from the conventional (such as introducing Underground networks) to the bizarre (invading Eldritch creatures) mean that you can tailor your game experience to your particular tastes. I'm not really sold on the weird expansions, for all my love of the mythos, but I'll most likely get some of the more regular ones. (I'm clearly lying )

More generally, in the absence of playing with toys, I've bought some stuff finally managed to track down some sables with triangular barrels, so that's a treat, along with some paint restocks, an Asian themed Gs roller (and yet more GS) and a couple of bits of scatter for moonstone: a town well and a cart pulled by a very large pig, just cos.

Hey ho, back to normality soon,
Graven

12" pancake with hot Sausage, spring onions and coriander (scallions and cilantro to you heretics) all in the mix along with jalapeños, salsa, sour cream, red chillies, ground chilli beef, nachos and cheese on top. Tell me that much food doesn't sound American or at least that much cultural appropriation and casual disregard for history isn't

Okay, no. I mean, no. Really. No.

I've spent a lot of time in Texas, and, no. Just no.

Tex-mex cuisine is exquisite and storied.

Also?

Coriander is the seed of the cilantro plant. Cilantro proper is the pre-flowering leaves and stems.

Also, also?

Spring onions are AKIN to scallions, but have a bulb base. There's a difference in the flavor intensity.

Thank you and goodnight.

Lol I seem to have hit a very raw nerve I do kinda get Brian's point, I cook a lot of Texmex (and my bro-in-law is Texan, so I have a very critical audience); all I will say now on the matter was I didn't devise this heretical concoction, but it was tasty. Abominably tasty. Sacrilicious

Very true! Ninjas are always excellent I'm looking forward to doing the character ninja, she's very cool.

Well back from my holidays, surrounded by animals, starting to get myself back to some semblance of normality. Got my lovely new brushes, and got the next set of IA figs done:


Nice group of figs.
I also got a pre primed wooden bridge from javis scenics, which mostly do railway and military stuff.

Painted up very quickly. Pre primed feels a bit like cheating I've got a WizKids well that's pre primed too, we'll see how that turns out. Not quite sure what I'm painting up next, supers are still glaring at me. But lots to do, off for the next month so we'll see if I can't get a few models done in July

more for me Thanks for kind comments. Yeah, we were lucky to get away at all. Way back in September the wife (who is a hospital microbiology lab manager) looked at the state of things and was fairly sure that the world wouldn't be open once more so we booked up early a week in Cumbria. And though teaching is brutal as a profession, the advantages from a family perspective are undeniable.

So I bought some new brushes, as I said, the Army Painter triangular barrelled detail and insane detail. And after only having used the brush once, for the eyes on the Rebels above, it wouldn't hold a point
I am quite ok with cheap brushes not being great but when I've spent that much more than usual for a brush I expect it to do the job! [/rant]
The brush is very comfortable in hand - as I've said many times I generally need to use a triangular barrel because of my muscular difficulties - but I'm pretty darn cross about this. I painted up my Goryu for Forbidden Fortress with it:

These are ghoul-like creatures, and I tried to strike a balance between using strong contrasting colours and not being to bright and shiny. I'm pretty happy but they were more of a slog than they should've been.

Also got to have an excellent game of Moonstone with the boys, teaching the older some faerie trickery and the younger the basics of the game

The scenario is an asymmetric raid (6 attackers, 5 defenders) where the defender hides Moonstones in the buildings and sets up wherever they wish.

It was more about getting the older used to other Dominion figs he doesn't usually use.

He got a bit frustrated as he did well in the first turn, though he was distracted by taking out the giant (which he hates) and so didn't manage to steal my stones, losing the scenario.
The town well in the pics is another recent addition. Reckon that we're getting there at last with the scatter
Anyway, more will hopefully follow this summer. It's a bit sporadic. Bear with!
