Hey, remember me?
Man, I knew this would happen. Once I stopped blogging for a single day, it all went downhill from there. Granted, last week both my wife and baby were sick, so I had less time to play and hobby and blog anyway, plus I went away for the weekend. All of that together means…it’s been quite a few days since I’ve posted. Eek…over a week, actually. I’m glad I made the conscious decision to not post daily, or else I would have been disappointed in myself by now.
However, I do have a few newly acquired items to talk about.
First, last week a relatively small box arrived on my doorstep. To be honest, I’ve been so busy I haven’t even gone through the contents much, other than taking them out of the box and laying them out like this:
…then putting them back in the box. But I do know that the package contains four more Old West buildings and some fences. I picked them up on the last day of GameCraft’s online sale. At this point I’m not sure when I’ll be playing Old West games, but I’m going to try and get them all built as soon as free time between other projects allows. I’m hoping that, with all of the other games I’m planning on getting into/demoing right now, the Fall will be the Season of the Old West.
My other new acquisition is a collection of much-anticipated Dark Age stuff!
I made the decision a month or so ago to get into Dark Age, and I’m in the process of joining the demo crew, The Legion. As you can see I now have the rulebook (a possibly-permanent borrow from Kevin. Thanks Kevin!) and two starters: Dragyri and Outcasts. I was drawn to the Dragyri right away, even though I’m not normally an ‘alien faction’ kind of guy. The Outcasts were originally my third choice, but they grew on me, and they were the other starter that Meeplemart had in stock, so…why not?
I’ve already begun working on the slaves, which you’ll see more of in tomorrow’s long-overdue Workbench Update.
I’ll also be working on unboxing photo (and maybe video) reviews for both the Dark Age and GameCraft items, as well as my pre-play thoughts on the Dark Age rules. Those things will be coming over the next couple of weeks, while I get the models ready for learning and demoing.
Thanks for reading.
