- Played some more Malifaux, against Lady Justice Guild and managed a reasonable draw - might have even squeaked a narrow win if the game had carried on for a turn or two more.
- Played some WAB - another terrible game for the Macedonians. The new (to me anyway) rules make my phalanxes even less mobile than before. Time to try the cavalry again in my next game.
- Wrote up a 40k scenario and had to frantically build some scenery for it. I've had this in the back of my mind for some time. I 'GMed' the game, with Orks facing Eldar. I'll do a post on this and the scenery shortly.
- Been playing a lot of Risk Legacy over the Easter weekend. Its a very interesting idea, the basic Risk board and armies take on different characters over a series of quite quick (by Risk standards) games. I can't go into much detail without spoiling the fun - a lot of the game's enjoyment comes from elements that are only revealed after certain things happen. We laughed a lot over these games and there's still more to unlock in the future.
Enough excuses - I was hoping to have something to post about a week ago, but finally a project on my hobby table has been finished. I've been working on the Garden of Morr set on and off for a month or two and am pleased to have got it table top ready and have had a small skirmish through the creepy architecture (Malifaux). Its a great set that I can use for Warhammer, Mordheim and Malifaux easily, I'm sure other games too.
I've done a quick guide to the stone effect I used - credit to Brian for the recipe (possibly obsolete now thanks to the new GW paints!)
|First, over a black undercoat use Adeptus Battlegrey foundation|
|Second, wash the all the recesses (however slight) with Badab Black|
|Third drybrush generously with Codex Grey|
|Lastly drybrush more carefully with Astronomicon Grey|
|Here's a shot of all the pieces|
|Close up on the Gate and stone walls|
|Various mausoleums and a statue|
