Sort of a catchup post this one, so bear with me as its all over the place.
I came to a very odd conclusion this week about 7TV. Whilst it is a most fantastic game (as I’ve said previously probably the best set of character driven skirmish rules on the market at the moment) its going to prove expensive in both terms of time and money. Why is this I hear you ask? Well I didn’t because I’m not Alexa but if I was then I would have heard you. As an aside is anyone really surprised that these smart devices are listening to you all the time? I mean how do you think they know when you say ‘Alexa’
So yes, 7TV expensive.
Well its because for each event that I’m doing (and there are 3 this year) I’m painting a new cast – can’t take the same again – and lets be honest, I’m probably not going to use the figures for something else, even if I insist to myself that I am going to.
So for the first event I went to I painted up my Johnny Chan cast but I can’t reuse that for the Pulp event next month so I’ve been working on Dr Möbius and his Robotic Legions. 3 more models to paint for that one.
But then I’ve got another 7TV day towards the end of the year and I can’t take Möbius again – people will have seen it – so I’ll have to do another cast.
Fortunately of course I have plenty of models so its really just the painting that will need to be done – oh and coming up with a suitable concept (which I am still struggling with)
In other news Matt and I went to our first Dragon Rampant event at Board in Brum. Was really good fun with lots of wacky events and scenarios playing out – numbers were slightly disapointing but it didn’t affect the gaming one jot, just means its less likely to run again 🙁 Also hell froze over and Matt won the event. Yes you read that right and no, he hasn’t stopped going on about it.
Next month its 7TV Pulp along with Burrows and Badgers. Oh and at the end of the month its MAGE. Busy.
Finally I did a test last night to make sure all the podcasting plumbing is still working as I was harassed (harassed I tell you) at WHW yesterday to get recording again. Never one to upset people we are hoping to try and do something this week – its difficult as Matt is travelling a lot but we do still have a lot to say and as we get older we get even more opinionated. You really don’t want to get me started on the amount of spoonfeeding that gamers seem to need these days.
Oh look out, I’ve started …
Lets face it, I’m a complete geek, wargaming, xbox games and playing with lasers. I tried 3D printing but it made my head hurt. Flighty in the extreme, hobby projects last a couple of days before moving onto the next one
