I Need Another Weekend!
Now that everything seems to be getting back to normal, I'm excited to get cracking on my promise to deliver a post a week. Hopefully I can generate some content, even if its a little update here and there.
I've got several fun projects lined up and I just need to bust through a few previous painting commitments before I can get to them. The one I really want to get to is a mod for Muskets & Tomahawks, an 18th Century skirmish game. I think it would be suited for skirmish warfare in the American Civil War, and I have a pile of Perry Miniatures ACW figures just waiting to be painted!
I also have a scenario I'm working on about the Murzuk raid, that I'm really dying to get into and no doubt I'll start talking about that very soon. So, without further ado, a week in review:
WWPD Down Under
WWPD down in Auckland to visit and get an inside view of the Battlefront studio in action. It was great to have him down here and we hope to see him back soon!
You can read about his experiences here:
...but there will be even more coverage in the future in several different media formats.
Shifting Sands Army
Well, I've not lifted a paintbrush in over a week, so I'm a little behind schedule for the big event. I did find time this week to get the 90mm guns all ready for assembly.
I also managed to squeeze in a practice game with my list against Steve while he was here. Hopefully that battlereport will be posted on WWPD, assuming Steve has recovered from his flight!

Vic and I got to try our first game of X-Wing. It was pretty damn fun and I'm pretty sure I'll be keeping Sienar Fleet Systems in business over the next few months!

CvM got its first playtest game in that wasn't just Sean and I playing. It ran well, and I'm grateful to the guys for bearing with me as I hammered out a few wonky areas and re-wrote some rules. It seemed that the guys had fun, which was a good sign.
There are definitely some areas that can use some improvement, and Sean and I have some ideas for the next round of testing. A big thanks to Wayne, Sean, Steve, and Evan for having a go!
Got a game (or two) of Saga in last week with Wayne. In the first game, my Normans got slaughtered, but revenge was dished out in excess when I tried out the Jomsvikings battleboard. Not sure how I feel about those guys. They seem pretty rad!
We rounded the week out with a BBQ at Chris's place, where we discussed poo tongs infomercials and visiting the Dick Smithy. Many thanks to Sean for bringing the latter to life in this week's Highscore Kid comic:
Well, there was a lot more than just those things above that went down last week, but honestly, I'm broken and need to go to bed! So, until next time, thanks for reading!
