I was planning to write my first post of the year on the first day of the year, but I've figured I'd wait a bit to see if I could actually show something finished.
Now, I figured I wasn't as idle as I kept saying hobby wise, but nothing got finished and I don't want to show same WIPs over and over again.
On the hobby front, this year has started nicely. My diorama is mostly finished, my mojo is back.
I got loads of ideas floating in my head, that I should start writing down by now. I have to expand my jungle (bought lots of plastic plants months ago, only did few jungle stands). I will push forward this project so I can play:
Two strange aeons special scenarios, one happening in southamerican lost valley among the dinosaurs, other happening on a research island close to the coast of Florida.
Pacific adventures. I saw Company B's awesome japanese solider zombies (WWII) and I can't wait to game some us marines versus japanese experiment. I prefer japanese to nazi as nazis are overdone. It goes without saying I got no miniatures yet, and I really got to restrain myself from buying anything new anytime soon...but hey, before I get that jungle done, I will surely paint most of what I got, no?
Mayan / Aztec adventures! When I was a kid, I always wanted to be an adventurer / Indiana Jones! I really liked the movies and I still do. I knew at least a dozen ancient egyptian gods. I can't tell you how thrilled I was when I saw a rosetta stone in a British history museum. Just awesome. I remember reading how it is "stored in London" but when I was young, that didn't mean anything. When I saw it it had to be the highlight of my visit. Sure they got an actual Kleopatra in one of the exhibits, but as much as I was interested in mummies it seemed wrong to have actual dead bodies shown. Anyways, having a jungle and mayan pyramid lets me buy some of TAG's southamerican tribes of 16th century, which, given a good set of skirmish rules, could lead to gaming conquistador adventures. And now that I think of it, to pirates.
Well, let that be it, I think I've proven my point that jungle terrain is needed!
To be honest, I am thinking about gaming my (post)apocaliptic adventures in settings like that:
Talking of my modern terrain, I've finished basic colours on the out- and inside of one of my houses:
Zabadak made!) the floor shouldn't be in a spotlight anyways.
Some of you know I was really disappointed with the Walking dead series. I was looking forward to watch a zombie themed series when it started, but second season was too much for me to take. It was so awful, I've watched it to the end just because I've started watching it and because I was hoping it might get better. I couldn't watch the little miss never-my-fault and her son anymore. Then I kept hearing how 3rd season is better (watched first 2 parts and wasn't overly impressed) and yesterday I've seen it all the way to the part 8, mid season finale. That makes 6 episodes in one day...during which, I should work on my essays anyways!
Gosh, I talk much today...sorry about that. I just wanted to say that series really brought my mojo back and I finally got around to restarding my armoured bus, okay might as well call it a coach project. Yes yes, I've named my blog post about this one and I am showing you everything, except the bus. Here it is:
Okay...got one more fast thing to show and I'll finish this for today. Here is a picture of little walls you get in those metal briefcases. I bought a case to transport my miniatures, but never used it because I gave up on the make-your-own-foamcase. I will use briefcase one day, and as those walls are not needed, they will make a great concrete compound walls. I got the idea from my gaming group. They made awesome walls from it for their WH40k terrain...I'll take some pictures once I get the chance to show it to you...its really a clever way.
So, I've been storing so much things to tell you over past month, that It all erupted now! So, my new year's resolution is, I'll try to make shorter posts and more frequent instead.
Thanks for looking, and even bigger thanks for reading,
