Getting Social

Let's face it, wargaming is a fringe hobby, and my style of wargaming is on the fringes of that hobby.  I play games that are ten years out of print and in scales that are far from popular even in cities with thriving gaming cultures.  Honolulu ain't one of those cities, so it's pretty bleak.  That puts me on the fringe of the fringe, but there's this great technology called 'the internet' that lets me see what cool stuff other outsiders are up to.  It's high time I got a little more connected with those fringe types.  

To that end, I've finally updated by blogroll over there on the left.  If I missed your blog and you want a shout-out, let me know with an email or comment.  I'll also keep plugging in more blogs as they present themselves to my wandering eyes.

More Buildings Moved to the Complete Column

It's summertime.  No soccer coaching.  No homework.  No marathon training.  This is supposed to be the busy time for catching up on a year's worth of miniature wargame stuff.  And yet, thanks to a big move and work and other boring real world stuff, progress has slowed to a standard holiday season crawl.  BUT!  Progress continues...

Just a couple more to go...

Sisterhood of the 10mm Pants

I've had these two archers languishing in my paint box for months.  They are the best I could do at finding female archers for characters in the long-on-hiatus D&D campaign for my kids and their friends.  Pendraken's Amazons might work, but they'll need a lot of green stuff before I let my daughter use one to represent her.  The characters are sisters and elves, so these should work find for that.

Does this mean that more D&D is on the horizon?  Let's hope so...

Update on Painting the Town

Work on the home front and my home on the work front finally slacked off enough to let me paint up two more buildings for the Pocketmunda terrain board.  When done, this board should work just find for the scenarios included in the Tomorrow's War main rulebook as well.

Bright, clean, pulpy buildings.  Hopefully I can even use these is a Pulp Ally/Fantastic Worlds/.45 Adventure game someday, too.
