Painting swamp terrain pieces   Leave a comment

Painted up a couple of swamp/ marsh terrain pieces for miniatures gaming. Used a green diorama swamp gel which I thought would be more translucent . So I had to restart with the leaves and herbs and use water effects over it. Next time will just use water effect.

Battlestar galactica   Leave a comment

We did a game over TTS and everyone enjoyed it. The humans won just about playing the basic game with a sympathetic cylon.

Gloomhaven   Leave a comment

We have played a couple of games of gloomhaven using table top simulator. It works well. The first was a bit tedious being the headless horseman one which takes too long but is important for the campaign. The second was more fun being a treasure run and introduced Alex to his new Sun character.

Sword of Rome   Leave a comment

We are playing sword of rome over vassal. So far its taken two sessions and Mike is winning with the Etruscans and Samnites. Darryls Carthage keeps sailing to Etruscan aid then sailing back, whilst the Greeks wait readying their strength and the Gauls move about plundering the Samnites. Rome tried to attack Etruscans but keeps getting distracted and lost a VP to the Samnites and Gauls combining so is behind on points.
