Let’s start, covering 17th of July to the 23rd of July.
I took the week off so there isn’t much blog wise to talk about. I did take a look into some longer posts more focused on adding new rules and tools for play
I’m also starting to think about the next part of the rules comparison article that brought a ton of people to the site. I hit most of the big ones the first time around so now I’m back to look at stuff I may have missed out on.
I managed to get a game of Spectre in on the first day of my holiday against my usual York based opponent. Really fun game with the operators sneaking around until they raised the alarm and the rest of the village turned up. There were a few rules misremembered but now I’m really excited for this weekend in Cardiff.
The battle report should be up this weekend once I get it finished off.
Empress has a pile of new releases. More news next week once they arrive but I hope you like Brits.
Figure painting wise, less than expected. Mainly because I was too busy building my boards! They are not 100% finished by when I left them they were textured and had sand applied. Its been a great project so far, so very close to the point when I can start playing on them.
In what little time I’ve actually been painting figures, I’ve been working on a repaint of my SAS squad. Seeing as I’m basing most of my games in desert regions, I realised the jungle camo didn’t make much sense. Instead, I’m going for a mix of multicam, DDPM and plain camo using the same idea of limited palette to tie them all together. I’m also working on my first attempt at painting non-caucaisan skin. I’m really looking forward to getting these models ready for Cardiff.
That’s it for this update, expect more updates next week!
