Painting at a Tournament?
I was meant to be at a LARP event this weekend which was sadly cancelled. As it was St Albans Smackdown on Saturday, I headed up to act as a reserve player in case of a drop out. In the event, I wasn't needed, so I wandered around taking photos, fussing the dog and getting a little painting done. While I put all the photos up on Facebook at the weekend, I plan to put them up on the blog a bit at a time on a schedule.
I managed to finish my Shasvastii Nox Troopers. I'm happy I'm getting my Shasvastii scheme dialled in. Next up is the rest of the Wildfire Shasvastii.
While I was at Dark Sphere last week for the Warmongers meet up, I picked up a few bits and bobs of the recent releases. The Corpse Grinder Necromunda cards I picked up as there's a bunch of generic cards in the set. Meanwhile, I've been intending to play Warcry for a good while, so I grabbed a selection of warband cards where I already own models (admittedly not assembled yet).
There was also a rep from Chaosium at Dark Sphere raising awareness of the various games they produce. We had an interesting chat, and was given some introductory rules for Runequest, which I've not looked into before. I'll be interested to give it a read through.
I also managed to get in a practice game for the European Infinity Championship. I've not had much chance to play Power Pack so wanted to work out how it plays. I had an interesting game against JSA. which I may write up depending on what I have time for.
I've got a restless feeling at the moment that I'm not getting everything I want to done. I may need to have a bit of a think about my time management. I suspect a lot of the problem is underestimating how long things take. Not sure how to fix that...
