I’m sure I could have made that title a little more cryptic.
What I mean is, last night I was supposed to pick up a Firestorm Armada fleet and rulebook from a local guy who I’ve been trying to meetup with a while. Well, we finally were able to meet, but for some reason or another he didn’t have the stuff. So, no new stuff for me.
However, a couple of fellow TABS members were in attendance (this was at Dueling Grounds, here in Toronto, by the way), and I was able to squeeze in two games of 7 Wonders with them before I had to get back home. The first game I lagged behind and ended back a half-dozen points. But the second game I did much better, ending with an 18-point lead! Nice way to make up for the earlier loss.
Sadly, I had to get back home. Well, sadly for gaming, not sadly because I came home to join my wife and 8-month old laughing and playing. Good times.
Lastly, here’s an update to my current workbench.
I finished painting the mini-bots, having decided not to add colour to them to denote their profession. I did a couple of tests and painted them back to metallic, it just wasn’t doing it for me. Not sure if I’m going to change the whole bot thing to not include professions at all, I’ll have to research how that would work.
I’m on the fence about whether to halt my work on the Terran fleet, for a couple of reasons. One, I now don’t have the rules or a second fleet, and that bumbs me out to the point that I might want to work on something else instead. Two, I don’t know if I’ll play the game in the very near future, as we might be getting back into WHFB shortly, and that will take up more hobby time. I’ll have to talk to Loy about this one, and see how badly he wants to play it and how soon. I don’t mind pushing it back a bit until a later time. Oh, and three, I sort of want to get the Romans done so I can move on to the next set of units.
