I grew up in a boom town. It was on its…I think third boom, when I was there. It’s into its fourth now, with a pretty significant bust in between. When I was living there and experiencing all the fun that comes with being an adolescent, the town existed to mine trona. If you read […]
I’ve got Jakob Lynch painted, and his crew’s rapidly reaching painted completion. I admit I’m apprehensive about the female Illuminated, because there’s a dress involved and I just don’t know if I’ll do it justice. So, we’ve got the Illuminated, which I just glued to their bases. I want the “Vomiting Brilliance onto a dude” […]
I genuinely don’t use puns this often in actual speech; there’s something about needing to throw a title on a post, though, that turns me into my worst self. I actually ran a search through previous posts to be sure I hadn’t already used “Prime Time.” I wouldn’t have put it past me. Anyway, I’ve got my […]
This is a great damn idea. I’m wading into the shallow end of the Malifaux RPG, Through the Breach. Last week I put in an order (through Amazon because I don’t think I could get both of them from Wyrd’s store at the time) for both boxes of their PC character kits. Because, you know, yes.
Some items arrived: I picked up a crazy haul from the first Reaper Bones Kickstarter, so I was happy to jump in on the second one. Because of that initial haul, though, I wasn’t particularly interested in the core set of minis. For roughly what I spent the first time around, I focused up on specific […]
That’s from a Marilyn Manson song! An old one, that I don’t think many folks know. It was a good song, from a great album. Currently, the pale giant is doing a lot of interviews, and they’re making it very challenging to defend my appreciation of the dude’s music. The AV Club couldn’t even get him […]
Harpies? Yes? No? Maybe? To me, the Beastman fluff feels very backed-down, and with the direction GW has gone (see for reference: Necrons) I don’t imagine they’ll change things up. The way Beastmen are presented is…sanitized. I don’t revel in sexual violence, by any means, but given the satyr that serves as the background for […]
So as part of my campaign to rekindle my appreciation of the minis hobby (and spending time at my local after a real blow to the community), I’ve been crafting madly in the last few days. I’ve had a couple games with my Beastmen since the Legions of Chaos dropped (and one more that I’ve not […]
I had this picture on deck when I wrote my hobbynnui (if you say it out loud, I think it works) post, but thought it’d make a better coda to that somewhat gloomy expulsion of frustration. These three lionmen barely feel like they should count as a conversion…you just take some Crypt Horrors and slap […]
I’ve been feeling extremely disconnected from my hobby of late. The impetus for that was certainly the unpleasant drama of the late-summer/early-fall, but the ennui’s continued to creep up on me.
