State of Affairs at Mik's Minis
ha, I 'googled' "Mik" and got this...
So, the first month of the new year comes to a close. What do I have to show for it? Umm, not much! Looking back at last year, especially near the end of the year, I was posting every day, now I'm lucky to get a post in every week if that.
My gaming has somewhat slacked off, still getting in board gaming and what-not, and of course you can follow our RPG group on our podcast, but I haven't put brush to fig whatsoever. In fact, I've got a Rackham Dwarf, all he needs is some basing and layer of Dull Cote and he's done...nothing. Have I been playing video games? Yeah, but it's not a guilty pleasure, I stand behind my XBox 100%, but I also can't deny how it completely destroys any other hobby time. Obviously Dragon Age has been the largest culprit, but you know Mass Effect 2 came out this week, right? Oh, and I bought it already, of course. It came out the same week I beat Dragon Age, so I think those blighters had it planned all along!
I missed out on an awesome game of Pig Wars just the other night, and I'm kicking myself for it still. "Vikings" were at the top of my 'get it done in 2010' resolution too. In the 15mm sci-fi department, the rules we were playtesting got a "major overhaul" and I like to think it's in part to our feedback, ahem, but probably not. The Centaur Princess Chronicles have been a pretty big hit as well, so keep checking back here every Tuesday for her exploits.
