I’m back from our CabinCon weekend and haven’t quite gotten everything unpacked yet but I did see some awesome news coming out of Knight Models.
Sorry, no Walking Dead Wednesday today. I’ve been too focused on the upcoming CabinCon to work on anything else over the week. The trip is nearly upon us and I’m just barely making it through. Today, I finished up my bounty hunters and I think they turned out pretty well for blitzing through everything.
I don’t have a lot of time so I’ll just run through the rest of my shots of the bounty hunters from Imperial Assault as well as my Star Wars Uglies conversions.
Tomorrow starts our annual CabinCon trip filled with games, games, and more games up in the confines of a nice secluded cabin. It’s a great chance to meet up with old friends and hit games that we usually don’t have time for or pulling out old favorites.
Every year, I try to throw out something unique and memorable and so this year I’m trying out a “Hunger Games” variant for Imperial Assault’s skirmish rules. I like the theme of a bunch of Bounty Hunters getting thrown together to fight it out Battle Royale style so I picked up all the Bounty Hunters I could find and decided to go the extra mile and try to get them painted before the Con. We’ll see if I can wrap them up in time.
I got another chance to hit Warhammer Underworld: Shadespire and it didn’t help- I’m still really into the game. I was hoping a few more plays would dull my interest but I’m still just as excited for the game as I was initially.
There are a lot of things to like in the game that keep me coming back and the miniatures, with their great detail and dynamic sculpts, are a big part.
Not much time this past week but I did finish up several more survivors. This time it’s time to finish out the ladies of the Greene family.
I got a chance to play Games Workshop’s Warhammer Underworld: Shadespire the other day and that is a fine little piece of miniature bliss. The last GW game I played and enjoyed was Space Hulk 3.0, but I don’t own it. I own a copy of Dreadfleet but it is still in shrink and I haven’t gotten enough of a push to rectify that. Shadespire, however, seems right up my alley.
I’m still working on the farm material for the Miles Behind Us scenarios and this time we have a few more items completed. First up is an old tractor toy I picked up cheap off eBay.
While the box had seen it’s fair share of use, it was still sealed when I got it.
I’ve been slowly getting things up and ready to unpack the basement and the more I work around down there, the more I see how to use the space. One of the things I’m excited about is the open space to set up games in. While the basement is unfinished (unlike the last house), I’m starting to like the flat concrete floor as I’m now fascinated with casters and making everything mobile. It started as a way to lift my shelving up off the floor in case of a low flood out but now the potential has opened up other options.
