It's been a rather splendid summer in many ways; I have distracted from my distractions, spending far too long plotting the Batman's downfall at the hands of the Penguin all to the cost of my other projects. I have caught up with friends and family and even managed a couple of gaming days, but the time has come to dust off the satchel and sharpen the pencils in readiness for the start of the new academic year!
Before I slip back into more pedestrian posting habits there is still time for one more flight of fancy - the Penguin Titan! Edwin King, over at 'Thoughts of a Depressive Diplomatist' had very kindly alerted me to a new release from 'Fenris Games' - Mutant Penguins! This were so absurdly wonderful that I immediately ordered up a set and then realised that I hadn't the faintest clue what to do with them!
After much deliberation I picked one and fashioned it to the same style bases that I was using for the rest of the crew, trying to replicate the same colour palette that I had used for the 'Rocket Penguins' - a plan was slowing coming into focus.
The Mutant Penguin did make a brief appearance in our game earlier in the month, where I used him as at Titan Dose marker, but there is something about his pitiful, lumbering shape that makes me want to flesh his role out a bit more, but that will have to wait for another day. As a farewell 'Hurrah!' to the summer, I have amassed the crew for a final group shot - a rather splendid summer indeed.
