Built a pair of Fomoroid (sp?) Crushers for War Cry/AoS this evening. Very nice models.

Also discovered that about 1/2 the packs weight comes from all the copies of the WC stat card included. There's cards for 8 different languages! Of wich I only need 1 (if that)....
So, rather than just throw the other 7 cards away, I've decided to attach them to bases & use them as cardstock pawns of Fomoroids.
Now instead of having two models I'll have 2 plastic & 14! cardstock Fomoroids. 1700+pts from only 2 boxes/$80 - What a deal!

Got a pair of games in today/this evening.

40k: the first 25 PL match in our newest Crusade. My Necrons vs a very unfortunate Death Watch team. Victory = Necrons at the tp f turn 3.

Flames of War (WWII): 1st real game of FoW in over a year. Man were we both rusty at this....
My Late war Japanese vs LW US Marines. We ended it on draw since the shop was closing - though had the game gone another round or two I truly believe my Japanese would've won. Technically I probably won on unit pts kill wise - but we didn't even think to add that up.

Tonight we gave Aerotech (space fighters for Battletech) a spin.
It was mostly a learning game, so it moved pretty slow. And we're sure we missed something.

Building wise;

Sealed the Spyrers.

So if one of the group selects the Spyrers as their gang, they have options.

After watching a review of Cyberpunk 2077, or during to be more accurate, I played Cyberpunk 2077 for the first time in a while. Swallowed my pride and decreased the resolution and graphics
and it seems better now framerate wise and I managed to pass a stealth mission I was stuck on for Bangam I'd been frustrated trying to play for ages now. Wondering when the next update is going to come as it's been a month now and by the Emperor, this game needs more updates still.

Edit: WOOPS! Wrong thread. Closest I've done on hobby stuff was playtest my TT Skirmish game with my friend and he game me some excellent critique. Yes.

"The best way to lie is to tell the truth." Attelus Kaltos.
My story! Secret War
After his organisation is hired to hunt down an influential gang leader on the Hive world, Omnartus. Attelus Kaltos is embroiled deeper into the complex world of the Assassin. This is the job which will change him, for better or for worse. Forevermore. Chapter 1.

The Angaran Chronicles: Hamar Noir. After coming back from a dangerous mission which left his friend and partner, the werewolf: Emilia in a coma. Anargrin is sent on another mission: to hunt down a rogue vampire. A rogue vampire with no consistent modus operandi and who is exceedingly good at hiding its tracks. So much so even the veteran Anargrin is forced into desperate speculation. But worst of all: drive him into desperate measures. Measures which drives Anargrin to wonder; does the ends, justify the means?

Hadn’t considered either of those ideas. Will certainly look into those. Thanks!

Versteckt in den Schatten deines Geistes.

Finally clearing up my gaming room. On no less than 3 occasions I have opened a box to find between 5 and 10 random Adeptus Custodes still on the sprue.

It's weird coming across so many unopened boxes. When getting my Dark Eldar ready to put into storage I found two unopened boxes of Chaos Raptors. Put them with the other three!

I filled a 50L tub with just unbuild Primaris Marine sprues (I'd have a few more to put in there, but the courier with the rest of my Primaris arrived before I woke up this morning).

Currently filling another 50L tub with unbuilt Eldar, Harlis and Dark Eldar. This is quite a bit of fun.

I will have pics. "Pile of Shame" is such an understatement I can't even begin to describe what I'm looking at.

It's 1am, and so far I have:
Filled a 50L tub with Primaris Marines.
Filled a 50L tub with Eldar/Dark Eldar/Harlequins.
Filled a 50L tub with two Dark Uprising's worth of Zone Mortalis terrain + a bunch of Necromunda gangs.
Filled a 50L tub with Chaos Marines, Death Guard and some Chaos Daemons stuff.
Discovered 40 completely unbuilt Adeptus Custodes in various places around my house.

All of this stuff is still on the sprue.

I'm no where near through what needs to be organise and consolidated.

So much stuff...
Spoiler:



Also put all the various limited edition things I haven't built yet together for a group shot:

And got a nice group shot of about 90% of my built Sector Mechanicus stuff:
