It seems like an age since this I last posted an update for 'Paint Table Saturday' so having seen off the end of another busy academic year my mind has started to turn to plans for the summer. Now I would like to tell you that I had a joyous period of quality hobby time ahead of me, but sadly this won't be the case. The Saintly Mrs. Awdry has already hinted at a substantial chores list and a focus on exercise, of all things, so the need to maximise painting time may see me rising early to get some time on the brushes before the lady of the house, rises from her slumber.
Anyway, I digress, returning the table and my immediate plans. I have some bits that need to be photographed and I hope to have those posted early next week, so the first job will be to complete more recruits for the clubman, again from 'Warlord Games', these still required a lot of work, but did arrive more quickly this time. Also on the table are some splendid sculpts from 'Heresy Miniatures' in the shape of Hellhounds to represent the Barguests*.
*Same thing different name!
Finally, I need to add to my terrain with some drystone walls and some additional trees to represent the boundary of the forest, where the bad things comes from! So this is the plan for July, which will hopefully see me with enough components to roll some dice on the first scenario for 'Witchfinder General'. There are distractions lying in wait to snare the unwary, in the shape of Bloodbowl and 7ombieTv, but more of those another day.
In other news, '28mm Victorian Warfare' has received another 'Liebster' award, a tremendous honour, but made more special as it was nominated by a Gentlemen whose blog, and work therein, have been such an inspiration to me. Mad Guru's 'Maiwand Day' blog is such a treasure trove of ideas, research and quality terrain making tips, that to receive a nomination from him in an honour indeed and the very least that I can do is find the time to graciously accept it. I do urge those that have not had the pleasure of visiting his blog to do so, you will never look at bark chips in the same way again!
Finally, there is the small matter of 'Zombicide Season 3' that has launched on Kickstarer; lots of stretch goals have been added already as this juggernaut of a game has ploughed through a $1,000,000 pledged and still over twenty days to go. For someone that was late onto this game and has had to buy the previous two instalments (and of course the Toxic City Mall extension) at full price, I determined not to miss out this time, but I shall probably wait a little longer to see what additional add ons might be in the offing. I should add that as this is technically a board game the accompany miniatures will not add to the lead pile tally - my hobby, my rules!
