Well I've finally started my two weeks of holidays and I must admit that they've been much needed! As much as I love my job, it's been a really mentally busy few months and my hobby time has been seriously curtailed because of it.
But now I have holiday time, what am I going to do with it? Well I must admit that I am itching to get some painting done and can't wait for my War of Ashes miniatures to arrive from Zombiesmith (see previous post!) but I also want to keep up with the attempts to clear my leadpile a bit so am going to crack on with painting my way through the odds and sods that I have collected over the years while I am waiting for the new goodies to arrive.
In other news, we've been running a games night in Waterstones Dundee for the last couple of months and are regularly getting a turn out of 60+ folks in to play Magic the Gathering, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh and a wide selection of boardgames but there have been requests to expand it so theres going to be a RPG group meeting instore for the next and I will be taking along some miniatures goodies to tempt folks with some good old fashioned wargaming too!
I am tempted to run a game or two of Rogue Trader fielding my gangs of assorted scum and villainy but I don't really have access to enough scenery or a decent gaming surface yet so I'm settling on the super simple Song of Blades and Heroes to get folks started.
Maybe next time...
I will be taking along the new Boar Company as well as a rival warband formed from of the retinue of Marik Goldhelm!
I still need to finish sculpting one or two bits and bobs but it should be quite a bit of fun and if anyone is lurking around Dundee on the 17th, please do feel free to head Waterstones from 6pm and who knows, maybe next time we can sort out a game or two of Rogue Trader and introduce a new audience to the joys of Oldhammer!
In the meantime, I am off to get some sculpting done so all the best!
