    I drilled out the arms of these and inserted magnets to reattach them. When GW get around to releasing sprues of alternative weapons I will be able to swap them out. This magnetisation thing is one of the most satisfying modeling bits I have done in an age. Every time I pull off an arm and put it back it makes me smile. Simple things I know but .

    It has been a while because I have been away in Oz but today I completed my traitor faction knights for Adeptus Titanicus. The first one I posted a while back, here are the other two:

    Completed the first of my Adeptus Titanicus knights. A test colour scheme for my traitor faction. It works well I think.

    Warming up to painting the contents of the Soul Wars box I picked up last week. Although this picture has just allowed me to notice that ugly silver finger print I left on the middle front one. I shall go and sort that out now.

    First the new Age of Sigmar box with all those lovely Nighthaunt minis, now the rerelease of Adeptus Titanicus. I am going to have such a backlog to paint and where am I going to stash all this stuff? Look at this video: Unboxing the new Adeptus Titanicus

    I bought a small Tabletop Tyrants bag at the UK game expo this year, for my infinity miniatures. I strongly recommend them. You could not crush it under something heavy, but it is great for usual carry to the club stuff. The only thing that matters is selecting the right foam trays for you minis. It seems you are getting great advice here for that job. Their build a case tool on their website is a good guide. A small case can easily fit two thin trays and a thick one.

    I went for the light magnifier option first and the got some goggles too. To be honest, the light ended up being a bit too static. So it was hard work to use. I much prefer the goggles. I still use the light from the big lens because it is a nice daylight bulb, but I rely on the goggles for fine work. Mainly I wish my eyesight was not deteriorating as I get older. ☹️

    The official announcement for the new version of Age of Sigmar is up. Oh my! Those Nighthaunt miniatures are amazing. All my money is draining from my pockets. I can feel it going.

    UK Games Expo

    Had a great time yesterday, my only regret was not trying to make proper conversation with SU&SD guys. Everyone was so busy. Bought Escape from the Temple which has been on my list for ages but I have never managed to pick up before. Hive pocket which will be great for when we go trekking. Blades in the Dark as a book rather than relying on the PDF as I have before, and a carry bag for my Infinity miniatures. My friend bought me the wooden insert for Gloomhaven which was very generous of him. I suspect putting that together that will be this afternoons job. I spent a good long time chatting to the main creator of Shadows of Esteren, which I have Kickstarted a couple of times. It was a really interesting talk. The chap from Battlesystems was kind enough to give me free stuff when I chatted to him about his Kickstarter (which I also did) and some past correspondence we have had. Played Fog of Love which I liked a lot but could not afford on top of the other stuff and generally had a great time. I would like to play it some more. I was overwhelmed at the beginning and tired come the end. Glad I went and will go next year for sure. Not sure I could do more than a day though. Although an evening playing i attractive. We ended up going home and playing Gloomhaven until midnight anyway. I did not play enough demos, so maybe I have got more in me than I did this time.

    It is listed in the Seminars section. It is happening between 1730 and 1900 on Saturday in the Toute Suite. No tickets being sold for it so queue or bust I guess.

    I am going on Saturday with a few friends. First-time we have actually managed to get our acts together, despite meaning to for the last few years. Looking forward to seeing if GW surprise us with anything. Possible if unlikely. Would like to go to Shut Up and Sit Down Live, but I am not going to give a load of time to a queue, which may be necessary.

    A reasonable amount. The GW fluff got me into wargaming. The Old World was such an interesting place that I also role-played in a lot. I was always interested in the historical context of the historical games I played. It developed in me a fascination for the English Civil War and conflicts of the 17th and 18th Centuries. But then I really like playing Infinity, which is an excellent warband/skirmish level game, but the fluff leaves me ambivalent. It is quite interesting but not enough for me to have consumed avidly. I guess good fluff will allow me to put up with an OK game. Good game will allow me to put up with OK fluff. One of them has to be there. If I can have both that is amazing but it is a long time since I saw that in anything substantially commercial. Only in pamphlet level historical stuff.

    Gloomhaven

    My copy arrived a couple of weeks back and I have been most remiss, mainly because I have been working away. I opened it, was amazed by how much stuff there was in it, and then just hid it under the spare bed. I have limited space and feel I must free up some before it actually goes in the games cupboard. Massive Darkness and the collosal amount of stuff it came with is going to eBay I reckon.

    A little bit of greenery might work. I would err on the side of keeping it dark though. It is very much a style thing though. Cocky's stuff is amazing with little base work. I tend to quite heavy on significant models like this one. It is a mostly mix of flock and sphagnum moss I picked up while walking in the woods.
