So how did I do last week? Not very well is the answer. I managed to progress the Brits a little more but a lot less than I anticipated. I did progress so as far as I am concerned, thats a win!
As far as the whole Relic Knights bit is concerned, well my gaming buddy Nigel cancelled on me so that meant not only did I not play test a game, I also did not cut out and sleeve my RK cards. Still no matter, there will be a new iteration of the cards and rules so no doubt I will have to do it again sometime soon.
So that week I reckon only 1 pt.
On to another week – well actually I am 2 weeks behind in posting here so I should give you an update on last week and this week really.
Last week I was pretty wiped out in the evenings. I did absolutely no painting. I did achieve one thing which was on my list of things to do. This is hopefully an enabler for more hobby at a later day. I have put a load of stuff up on ebay. Anyone who does ebay knows what a PITA it is. Take the photos on the phone, download or email the photos to yourself, save them, write the ebay advert, use the photo, yada, yada, yada. Anyway its done and I have a load of WFB army books (dont even know what edition of WFB these are for any more!) as well as a load of AD&D role playing modules from way back in the 80s. The lots are doing very well so for me this is a great thing.
In addition last week I wanted to make a start on looking at a game system that I have been itching to play for a while now, namely GW’s Lord of The Rings. Of course this also includes The Hobbit too now. So I have borrowed some of the Army Books off my friend Nigel and looked at what I have to figures wise stored in the garage. I’ve decided to go for Isengard as an evil force initially and very probably Elves of some sort as a good force but also once the Isengard force is up and running. Having made this decision I have started to look at what I have and what I need to do get a 300-500pt force up and running to at the very least have a game. I love the imagery from the LoTR films and it just so happens I already have Lurtz and some Uruk-Hai painted by my fair hand a while ago.
Hey they are not brilliant but they have paint on them and they are gloss varnished and flock based. All this can be fixed relatively easily but thats once I’ve had a few games and the enthusiasm is really there. In the meantime, I’ve had a look at forces and what I need to build. I started the building last week – a warg rider.
So I did not specify what I was going to do, I’m late but I did stuff so I reckon last week I deserve 3pts!
This week (wk commencing 10th July) my aims are to ensure the ebay stuff gets packed and posted, finish building the warg riders and try to progress the Brits a little bit more. This is going to be a hard ask as I have a pretty heavy load at work this week, we are going out with my sister and husband who are over from Australia on Wednesday and my stepdaughters birthday is this week and we are going out for a family meal on Thursday evening. I’m also still actively looking for a new job so that eats in to my time and I am still coming home knackered! Oh and we are going to move the wargaming club that I am involved with to it’s new venue on Saturday too! Perhaps that should be a goal!
One thing I do know is that tonight I finished constructing 3 warg riders so I am definitely going to be getting points for them. I have another box of these which I can add as a goal for next week!
