Hard at Work... But not This Week!
It's been a really nice week off work the last few days. Loads of gaming and even finished up part 1 of the Dark Elf re-base project.
So, in a post a couple of weeks ago I mentioned the virtues of acetone in loosening CA / super glue. I buckled down and pulled the rest loose and the order from Litko arrived late last week. I spray-colored fifty of the bases and got to gluing! After perhaps two and half hours of effort, voila! An army that occupies only 60% of the space of its predecessor. It looks tighter and the square bases are a good bit more compatible with a variety of game systems.
I think I actually have another bag of lizard riders. I probably should re-do the Dwarves first though.
On Monday morning, Mark J came by because what else would you do on a vacation week Monday morning? We played a couple games of Command and Colors, primarily because even though Mark is 12 million years old, he's never played C&C. First game was Ancients, followed by the more complex Jacobite Uprising.
I won the first and Mark snatched the second from me after getting slapped around for 90% of the game.
After C&C, we put Marvel United on the table. It's a co-op board game, superheroes vs. the table. Mark's collected a ton of it and never played so I sort of insisted upon it.
Quite enjoyable and I'd love to play through a multi-encounter campaign some time.
Last evening I went waaay off the reservation. My brother in law's D&D group was getting together for a one-shot high-level scenario and asked if I wanted to join. Of course! I put together a Gnome Sorcerer on D&D Beyond and we got together at Cerberus Legion Games in Richmond Hill. We started playing around 6:00pm and wrapped up at midnight. Our sixteenth-level characters handily dealt with three giants, an ice troll and two hellhounds before ending up in the lair of the ancient red dragon "ol something-or-other."
