Some random thoughts

I've been away for the weekend...been busy with final birocracy regarding printing my diploma and such (which means it has to be graded now and I should be able to continue my postgraduation lessons). Just to brag a little, here is the picture of printed copies:




The nice one is for myself, I've figured it can make a nice memory :P. The rest, the ugly 3 are as good as they have to be and are for my faculty's needs.


I've spent saturday playing FOW after a couple of months. If you are into this, I've played late war, 1750 points. German pioniere kompanie, 2 pioniere platoons, 3 nebelwerfers, 5 stug Gs, 4 brummbars (a little beast!) and some AA trucks. First game versus hungarian armour was a win for me, but for high cost. Second game, versus US armored rifles was a loss. On sunday we had first slovenian international tournament. It was 19 players, 3 of those were from Croatia and Serbia. International nontheless! I got no pictures as I was busy making mistakes (i really dont play much!) and losing games. I played 2-5 versus armoured rifles from saturday (1 in 19 chance that I'd get him!) (but could win 5-2 with better last turn rolls or decisions!), second game was played versus a guy that I play with on every tournament! This time he totally trashed me and I hardly got a platoon of AA to make it 5-2 for him. Third game was a draw, and I got 3 points as I've destroyed 2 platoons and he got 1 as he killed nothing to me. I was on his objective and, given more time, I could potentially win it 6-1. But well, the bottom 3 is my usual ending place, so why end the curse! And this also gives you an explanation why Im slowly drifting towards skirmish and campaign games, hehe!

I've also taken some pictures of one nice arena 2 guys at our club made (which sees no games, its for mordeheim 28mm) and some pictures of trees covered with lichen for Brummie:









Oh, talking of skirmish games, when I've left on friday morning, mailman brought me my package from Black cat bases. Below is a picture of some Strange Aeons characters, a werewolf, some deep ones, hybrids, a secret fig and A FREE CAT! :O It says they're collectibles, 6 different by now and I was thrilled! Getting something free, even a candy totally makes my day. I like the idea that someone cares, hehe!

Well, more once I get them based and assembled!
Thanks for looking, Mathyoo

    1. Thank you! It really is, I was slowly losing my nerves with all the fixing and little details. I have to thank Bryan for proofreading the english part!

  2. Well done on getting your Diploma done mate. I think the tree look good thanks for posting the pics up. You could probably use that castle for Strange Aeons with a little imagination

    1. Thank you!
      If you could make some kind of crown to put lichen on it, I think it would look much better than I remembered when we talked the first time!

      Thats a great idea! Once I get to play SA there, I'll make sure we use the castle. The guys who build it would probably be happy for it to see some use and I already like the ideas of blasting or throwing "people" off the high lanes! :P
