Pimp My Board Game

a pursuit of fruitless endeavors and endless refinements

Slowly But Surly

I’m not really surly but it is Pirate weekend (Pirate talkin’ was actually Thursday but a lot of the festivities show up on the weekend) and I thought it fitting. Especially because I was combing through my collection looking at Pirate-themed gaming options when I stumbled on my copy of Merchant & Marauders.

This old Z-man game got a lot of attention and was well liked by my group but it disappeared and never came out again. Looking back through the box, I realized why.

Working With What You Got

I talked a bit last time about green stuff usage for my Ronin in Test of Honour. After a bit of work, I was able to get through most of the figures and get them ready to be primed.

Preparatory Actions

This week hasn’t been an exciting week as I’ve been toiling with the starts of some projects that mainly include a lot of priming with the airbrush. I’ve really hit my stride with airbrush priming as my process is down to where it is easy and quick without the hassle of needing the weather or temperature to cooperate. The smells are also nicely cut down as well.

Test Of (dis)Honour: Full Game

As I was going through my notes from a game of Test of Honour this past weekend, I realized that it was our first full game. We’ve messed around with my Dojo Assault stuff and we ran through some of the previous edition’s opening scenarios but none of those brought it all together as the complete and likely intended game.

As if to remind me that I still have a bit of work preparing for our next Frostgrave game, we decided to throw down a full (24 point) game of Test of Honour on the frozen ruins of an oddly-themed mapped. Fitting enough though, our minis were all various stages of grey (for now).

Plotting My Revenge

Ominous, I know. But sometimes you are so wronged, so completely abused that you can do nothing else save sulk off and concoct a plan to get even. In case you didn’t know, my Frostgrave wizard suffered a huge loss in the last game at the hands of a player that shall remain nameless (well nameless here. I drop all sorts of names in the report).

My animal companion, Mutt, died brutally on the fields of ruin. It was a heavy blow and there was nothing left to do but pick up the pieces of that broken heart and move on.

Fine Tuning

I’m wanting to move on to more varied setups for Test of Honour so I’m trying to tweak my “Dojo Assault” scenario a little more. My friend was able to come out again and run through another iteration of the scenario, last seen last week.

Frostgrave Campaign: Session 3

As mentioned earlier this week, a few of us got together to continue on with some more Frostgrave. We had originally called this a winter campaign but the days of winter have long past so I’ll just keep it simply as our campaign.

Back To Felstad

We were able to revisit the wonderful frozen city of Felstad this weekend as we threw down an epic game of Frostgrave. Sadly, I don’t have a report up yet but wanted to take a moment to show off some gratuitous setup shots that show off all the work Colton and Reese have done to bring Frostgrave to our table.

Back In The Samurai Again

While I was recapping my Gen Con adventures, I was not idle in my other projects. Things have been boiling under the surface and the time needed to prepare for Gen Con had stalled many other projects out. Now free to roam wild, I have set myself upon these languishing projects and worked them up into something useful.

Today is all about Test of Honour.

Gen Con 2019: Haul

With Gen Con over and my Recaps done, I finally had time to put everything away and get life back to normal. While putting everything back is never the most exciting thing to do, it does give me time to see what all I came home with.
