Just re-highlighted the Wraithbone elements of my Harlequins and will go over some of the Leadbelcher with the lighter silver colour highlights. Might even begin basing them soon! I think it was the Kill Team Youtuber Glass Half Dead who just made a heavily converted Harlequins Kill Team because he thought the normal models 'dorky' which I agree with, if you only look at the way GW painted them on the front of their box, their masks just look dorky but the way I painted mine avoided this (base of black with a wraithbone dry brushing, they look pretty scary, I think especially the Jason Vorhees mask, which I naturally put on my Troupe Master)

Finished a solo play-though of a board game (Aviation Tycoon) so that I can teach it tomorrow at the shop.

I got it in a bundle of stuff & all but the worst games deserve at least one play through....
Moving colored cubes around to destination cities via various colored air routes, matching stocks/banks collecting $ based on how many plane tokens the routes moved on contain, & then at the 1/2way point & end of game those banks pay out $ based on who has how much stock of each.
Winner = most $

Verdict:
Play-wise not the most exciting game in the collection (or even of it's type) but not terrible. It'll get played a few times & never seen again.
Quality is average. Board could be prettier & the tiny little route markers kinda resemble F117a Stealth fighters (odd in a game based on taking passenger cubes to destination cities).

Planning out the next 250 pt addition (+20 points left over from this week) to my undead force for the shops Escalation League.
Pondering wether I:
* bank most of the points so that going into week #4 I can mount my ghoul king on a zombie dragon,
* adding a Nighthaunt Blackcoach & banking 50pts
* adding a LoN Blackcoach + Banshee/Cairn wraith & banking the rest
* adding 20 Tomb King skeleton archers (split into 2 units) + Cairn Wraith
* adding another Mortek Crawler + Cairn Wraith - this combo would add some serious firepower....
* adding a FW Mourngul - doesn't fit the army very thematically, but it's still a cool looking model....
* something else???

So many choices & all but the MG fit my force so well.

Bought some Corax White to replaced the lost one after I lost my Kill Team game seriously my rolls were trash, my opponent even said she hoped that I'd roll better in the next game lol. Still managed to do okayish via some sneaky Eldar tactics, but I made a HUGE tactical blunder which I think really cost me the game lol

Going to play the super-mega sized version of AxisAllies this afternoon.
Supposedly combining the European & Pacific games results in a 6' board & a game that'll take 12 hours +.

A buddy warned me that - by the rules - the USA does virtually nothing for the 1st SIX turns. Recommended that I take a good book or something to do in case I draw the US chit.

So, on his advice, I'm taking several AoS/50k kits that need building with me.
Hopefully I won't get any of them worked on.....


Update: Well, that took all day. And all night.
Victory: Allies. By a wide margin.
Slowest things about this version were the set-up, setting it up again thanks to the cat trying to help, constantly having to check wich boats are destroyers, & about an hour going over rules/faqs/errata etc. Then going over the same new rules several more times each time they occurred....
Buddies also full of crap as the US enters the war (not play) on their 4th turn at the latest - & does have effective non-combat things they can do in the first three turns.
Next weeks game of this will go much faster.
