3D Printing for Fun and Profit

 Insert randomized greeting.

A little under three years ago, I went and bought a 3D printer. It's a Sparkmaker FHD (so named because it's screen is fairly good, and its adapter sparked out on the second use), and it's a fairly decent little machine. It has a relatively small print area, which affects what I can print on it, but for quality of prints, it can go toe to toe with any of its contemporaries.

And it's still in working order, though all the usual suspects have had to be replaced.

So, what's the point?

On Activation Order and Random Chance

 Howdy y'all. 

Step right up, pull the string in my back, and watch me go "There's an inherent flaw in Age of Sigmar!". 

I'm nothing if not predictable.

Growing up KInda Sucks, Doesn't It? The Alternative Is Worse, Though.

 You really thought I was gone didn't you? Defunct, like the logo to the right? Or maybe just moved on to the new, away from the old text-based medium?

No such luck I'm afraid.

A Year in Review - A Pile of Miniatures



This would be the second instalment in my 2016 year-in-review. The first one was about games played. This one is about miniatures painted.

Strap in.

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.
