Photo Friday: Cold Light

Busy week this week so I was only able to mess around with one of the shots I made for the banner image. More Frostgrave fun for the week.

Photo Friday: Beast Mode

I know I’ve been obsessed with Frostgrave all week but after our first game, it has it’s hooks in me. Deep. So time to keep the ride going and highlight Therelin and her furry friends.

Photo Friday: So Much For The Glory Of Rome

We got in a game of Fire & Axe the other night and every time I play it, I just want to dive right back in. There is something about the theme (which I’ve been on a viking kick for some time now) and the slight abstract gameplay that just calls to me. I’ve resolved to pimp the game out as I enjoy it too much to sit there plain in its vanilla, factory-freshness. I need to put my mark on it so time to start brainstorming.

Photo Friday: Homage

My last Photo Friday focused on some art shots of Blood Rage miniatures and I hinted that there was both inspiration and purpose behind it.

Before we get to deep into the results, this Friday’s photo took advantage of some of the natural scenery found in my backyard.

Photo Friday And A Magic Quest

Each year I try to add something new to the blog (for as long as I can keep it going).  This year I want to do a little bit more photography and so I’m going to start up “Photo Friday.”  This will feature one new photo each week to get me back in the swing of things. Last Friday, I inadvertently started it so I’m going to try to keep it going.
