So, I've got a lot of things I'm trying to get done for the blog. It may be a few more days until I can get back into it, so I thought I'd post up a short update with whats been happen'n 'round the studio.
Item #1: Calliope Award!
I can't tell you how excited I was to find out that Cassino was awarded a Calliope Award at Origins 2012 (link here...). Its sort of the gaming industry standard of an Oscar. So I feel that I need to say a little acceptance speech:
|Date night with my Caroline!|
Went to a Flight of the Concords concert a few weekends ago. I'm still on a buzz from that show, which was possibly the best I have ever been to! Anyway, wanted to quickly comment on that and insist you make the effort if they are in your region. I swear on a stack of Bibles that you will not be disappointed!
Haven't heard of Flight of the Concords? Educate yourself below:
|From Chaos exits some Order.|
As you can see in the photo of my work space, I've got a bad case of painter's ADD. I've got some Dystopian Wars on the go, my Sudan Defense Force trucks have come back out of the box, Norman spearmen and crossbowmen are primed and ready for some paint'n, and that photo doesn't show just to the left where 2/3 of my LWGT army (maybe) is being painted, my US Parachute Rifle Company (Market Garden). I've gotta get some focus soon, but for now I revel in the chaos!
Patrick and I played the final installment in the raiding story we've been building for WWPD's Sealion '44 campaign. The event is about to wrap up, so my top priority really needs to be to finish the battlereport and story before the campaign concludes! Lemme tell ya, though. It was a freaking epic game. You know those sorts of games where things happen that will stay with you for the rest of your life? Yeah, that sort of shit happened in this game. Epic.

So, I'll get back to work on those things. Thanks for reading!
