So Mancavers, what have I been upto? Well being the first weekend after payday and the first weekend in the run up to Christmas not much except sorting stuff out for the kids and Christmas.
I managed to find some awesome Star Wars:X-Wing deal at Chaos Cards so I bought a TIE Bomber, a TIE Interceptor and an A-Wing for £7 each. Great deal!
I got a steal of a deal on the RiF OP2 Prize Ship – Koroks Assimilated Bird-Of-Prey on EvilBay so picked up another one of them. Happy Jase!
I also managed to find a great deal on Necromunda and Outlanders. Got a box set of each arriving today including all the original scenery which will hopefully be used in the Necromunda Midlands Campaign with Mark & Sam and Co. Im watching some minis on EBay to use for my Redemptionists. Keeping my fingers crossed.
I managed to grab some time to make up some more Battlesystems sci-fi scenery whilst we watched Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. Getting there slowly but surely and with any luck steady progress like this should keep me busy until the PRODOS AvP Kickstarter arrives.
I submitted the first article for a new Wargaming Magazine today so with any luck you may be seeing The Hairy Gamers in print on a news stand near you!
So, thats it until the next update. I’ll try to make sure I do some pictures on the next one for you all. I’ll make up the Necromunda scenery and take pics of that. Deal?
So this is just a little update for you all. Things at the Mancave have been hectic recently but in true “biting off more than I can chew” fashion I have a plethora of projects all on the go at the same time. So here goes, in no particular order:-
Blood Bowl v2 pitch construction and painting
Complete building and paint my Blood Bowl teams (v3 Skaven, Human. High Elves, v2 Elves and Dwarves)
Reading my AvP:The Hunt Begins beta rules in preparation for the KS Drop
Reading my Necromunda LRB rules ready for any campaign with the guys
Building Necromunda gangs
Building some more of my Battlesystems Sci-Fi terrain
Make some jungle terrain for a Predator themed gaming table…think aztec temple surrounded by jungle
Building and Painting my Colonial Marines APC ready for the AvP minis
Finish building my folding gaming table for STAW
More battle reports from the recent STAW series of taster games at NAGA
I must find more time to do things. Bad geek no biscuit!
A couple of posts recently by friends on Facebook has had my keen levels rising for Necromunda again. I’d love to find any of the stuff I used to have especially given the costs of things on EvilBay now. I’m sure I had a Full Redemptionist, Full Ratskin, Full Orlock and Full Spyrer gang plus a stack and store box full of scenery. I’ll be gutted if that’s all gone missing……could be at my Dads or my ex’s.
So I’m considering getting a gang and getting back into it…probably Redemptionists. I’m also after a cheap second hand copy of the original game if anyone reading this has one.
For anyone interested the below link lists alternate places to procure Necromunda minis and some cool images to get the creative juices flowing:-
Possible alternate solutions would be Malifaux or Confrontation or Inquisitor. Im looking for a 28mm sci-fi/dark future gang based game that wont cost the earth in minitaure purchases to buy or play.
