The Twelve Days of X-Mas - Day 4 & 5

Evening all,

Fairly lazy weekend BUT the deck clearing has paid off as paint has been applied to figures, in this case all vessels of the Imperial Klingon Empire. Nice paints, they were are all pre-highlighting and a wash of Baal Red and pretty much nothing else.

So that's the B'Rel, particularly pleased with the "feathered" wings and a pair of Old School'd D7s. The K'Tingas are following on nicely, with variants of the B'Rel scheme, to leave a pair of Vor'Chas and the Negh'Var to fit somewhere in between. One and a half PPs a piece feels about, hopefully all sorted for New Year.

Elsewhere I joined Mr C and Rich for the 3D IMAX mega-edit of Desolation of Smaug on Saturday night. I was highly entertained and re-enthused for some SAGA / Mordor action. All those Orc figures that have been staring at me for so many weeks may actually see something happen to them sooner rather than later.

Oh yes, I also pledged for HeroQuest 25 on Lanzanos, simply couldn't resist. I'm sure 2014 will see me needing to purchase very few figures....... Myself and Rich were having a chat in the queue Saturday about what actually qualifies as a "pure" wargame or boardgame versus all of the hybrids that seem to be populating KickStarter so heavily these days.

A thought for another post :)
