What have I been up to? Beefing up my FoW SS with a new Panzergrenadier company. Figuring out which model goes where is a pain in the butt.
In other news, I’m officially in sweet, sweet nerd love with Ashley Clements and Felicia Day but don’t tell my girlfriend. On second thought, she’s in nerd love with Benedict Cumberbatch and ever Disney character ever so… no ragrets!

I entered an X-Wing tournament last week. Should’ve won the first & last games I played but for these 3… As it was, I came last (well, aside from the two that dropped out early). They WILL learn their lesson…#DiceShaming@TabletopOwlbear

Classic Horton though

Some solo gaming of “Conflict of Heroes - Awakening the Bear” in order to learn the rules. It’s a great game!

Newest addition to the board game family! I have a friend who works at a toy shop and they’ve just started carrying “designer board games” too. I always thought Zombicide was pretty expensive for what it is—especially compared to games of equal size and quality (Mice & Mystics, Descent etc.)—but with my friend’s employee discount I got it for around $50 and that’s an okay price for what it is, I think.
They also carry Season 2, but I specifically chose to get Season 1 instead because I only wanted to get one of the two “core sets,” and you can’t have a zombie game without an inner city scape! I’m not a huge fan of the prison theme to start with, and I can get better Season 2 perks from Toxic City Mall (toxic zombies, Season 1 zombified characters, ultra red, etc.) and it fits better to the overall Zombie theme (Dawn of the Dead, anyone?) anyway. Unfortunately they don’t carry Toxic City Mall at the place where my friend works so I might just have to get it off coolstuffinc or something…
What are your thoughts on Zombicide Season 1, 2, and the upcoming Season 3?

I’m not dead…

It’s just that it’s a slow summer, and there isn’t much going on lately when it comes to gaming. Yesterday I played another game of Mage Knight and today I played Dixit and Bang! the Dice Game for the first time.
Dixit was fun, but it’s definitely not a game I would buy, and I very much prefer the card version of Bang! over the dice game, but it was still fun too.

Also, World Cup!!! Err’day!!!

Kommandant Irusk.
Figured it was time to move beyond Cyriss and Cryx, so where better to start than with my favorite faction, Khador. I don’t think many of them will fit my style, but the stern Irusk was an easy match.
I’d have finished him earlier but for the World Cup distracting me.

AHHHH love it!

Can’t not reblogs this

This day, close to this very hour and minute, 70 years ago, the first landing craft of Operation Overlord hit Utah beach at the coast of Normandy. It is to this day the largest amphibious assault in the history of mankind, and is still remembered as in some parts one of the most bloody, traumatic, and horrific battles of WW2.

It is a direct result of what these brave men gave, that I am here today. I know this sounds weird, but I’m honestly in awe and often tear up thinking about what these men went through to bring us freedom from oppression. Their sacrifice on the altar of freedom, and the sacrifice of those whose way they prepared, will always be remembered.

Finally took the plunge. Didn’t want to rely on friends anymore to play.
