A Year in Review - A Cavalcade of Games

2016 is coming to an end. I can't say I'm sad o see it go; it's been a real something of a year.

With the end in sight, I figured I'd try to sum up what I've done, hobby-wise. Not least because I've actually been taking notes for the entire year. It's going to have to be split into parts, though, and I figured I's start with Games Played, and Models Painted, which'll make two posts. We'll see if I manage more.

First off, then, games played.

On Guild Ball and the Death of the Tape Measure

Let's see if I still have an editorial-style post in me, shall we?

Mount up, buckle you seat belts, and keep your arms and legs inside the ride at all times. The pilot hasn't done this (without being angry) for a long time, and we might experience some turbulence.

Barf bags in hand? Expectations set to low?

Off we go.

I'm Bad at This (and a Bunch of Guild Ball Models)

I've had a bit of games lately.

I've played a bunch of the Pathfinder card game. Five scenarios, to be a bit precise.

I've played Eldritch Horror. Just the one.

And I've played four games of Guild Ball.

All in the last three weeks.

I have, however, also managed to paint quite a few minis.

Frostgrave and the Shortcomings of the D20

I was about to write that I've had a slow week, but that would be a lie.

On the one hand, I've got work done on four separate systems - though I haven't got many finished models to show for it, having focussed on preparatory stuff - and on the other, I've played both Eldritch Horror and Frostgrave.

So I'll write about why I'm reaching the end of my foray into Frostgrave.

A Little Bit of Work on Projects out My Ears, and a Couple of Games

It has been another couple of less than productive weeks, once again mostly because I've been playing games rather than working on clearing stuff from my painting list.

I know, it's a hard life.

The Second Stage of Hobby Grief - Writing a Blog Post about It

This one's been brewing for a while and I haven't done anything productive hobby-wise this week. I guess I'll rant instead.

I am disappointed in Age of Sigmar. This is me trying to explain why I even care.

Warning: this article contains material of an overly-dramatic nature and some melancholy scenes. Reader discretion is advised.

Projects out of My Ears - Second Update

Holiday season is over, and I'm running out of excuses not to write this up, so here goes.

This is what I've managed since last time.
