Saturday 15th December: Tomb of An, Grizzled and Diamant.   Leave a comment

Phil, Mike, Alex, Bruce and Darryl played.

First off we did Tomb of Annihilation.  We lost a healing surge when the bard got multiple fire bombs from the Villain in scenario 7.  However the team were victorious and with 2 heroes at Lvl 2 we are ready for Scenario 8 and beyond.

Next up was Grizzled which proved fiendishly impossible for our group.   Better luck next time maybe.  Then we finished with a none co-operative game of Diamant which Phil managed to win thanks to a nasty Lava trap.

Saturday 1st December. Merchant of Venus.   Leave a comment

Off to Michael’s to play Merchant of Venus.  Phil came second just ahead of Mike and Michael had a comfortable victory thanks to his clever use of space stations and some incredibly easy Missions!  Taking two of course helped with that.  Well done Michael.  My first time playing this old classic.  Very similar to Firefly.

Saturday 01/12/18 Painting Update   Leave a comment

Prep work on the Nazgul of Dol Guldur completed.  Because these are resin finecast it is best to use pin drill and copper rods to help with joining the finer parts together like the weapons.  Then I have undercoated with grey primer.

I have also fixed together the Knights of Dol Amroth using Revell plastic glue, sand and slated the bases and again grey primer applied.  Also I used superglue to fix together the foot knight versions.  No need to pin and drill these as they fit together better and the weapons come already attached to the hands.  I have done all the versions together so they match when finished.
