Keeping A Handle on Things

Kings of War requires that unit damage be tracked. Lots of methods have been proposed for this: counters, dice, kill rings. There are plenty of options.
My original plan was to put slots into my multi-bases to hold dice. However, I ended up with less space on my bases than I had forseen, so I need a new plan.

Duel of Kings: Day 13

I've got 25 miniatures fully painted. They're not based, however, since I'll be multi-basing. I've gone for a fairly classic look; straight-up fire and brimstone.

I made my first two Mantic orders in the past fortnight. Here's my thoughts on Abyssal Dwarves and Mantic in general.

Where to?

Rage-Quitting in style!
Age of Sigmar is certainly not an uncommon topic for blogging right now. Everyone has an opinion and they seem to be sharply divided. I haven't posted for six months or so, mainly due to my lack of gaming, but it's been a pretty tumultuous time in the gaming world and my personal world. I decided to get my thoughts and motivations down, feel free to comment.

Bolt Action Melbourne in February

BAMF! February 8th saw The Old Man Morin running another of his Bolt Action tournaments, and he roped me into helping him run it. OK, truth be told; I have a bit of an obsession with Excel and any chance to over-engineer a spreadsheet to deal with players is an opportunity not to be missed. But I digress: the day was about the playing and the players.

Building the Kedorian Battleship

I recently picked up a Kedorian support boxed set. It contains a battleship and two cruisers. My initial observation was that they're awesomely huge! My second observation was that they look like some of the most fiddly Spartan figures I've ever assembled, so I thought I'd document my progress so anyone following could benefit from my experience.

Lots of FSA Progress!

Wow! So much to report on over the last week or two. Firstly, my starter box arrived (finally!) and that means I have nearly doubled my existing fleet. I got my first game in against Mass last week. I've painted up the new stuff and I finished my comets!
