This Geek's Week...

The inspiration for my Pathfinder/Frostgrave Warband...
Modeling/Hobby:
- I've been working on my KDM stuff.  I finished up the 4 survivors, screaming antelope, and the butcher so far.

- Picked up a Reaper Bones Pathfinder Goblin Warchanter and ordered 2x blisters of warriors.  My plan is to combine my love of Pathfinder with Frostgrave in the form of a tribe of Snow Goblins.  Thus, I've been working a bit on painting the goblin up, though I hit a bit of a snag!  For some reason, none of the paint sticks, it just rubs off at the slightest touch, yet the whole model feels sticky or tacky.  If I can't fix it, I may give all the bones stuff to my daughter, and go with metal models instead...


Tabletop Games:
- Played a game of Krosmaster Arena with my daughter.


Card/Board Games:
- Ran Sajan through the "Trouble in Sandpoint", "Approach to Thistletop", and "Thistletop Delve" scenario, to finish off the "burnt offerings" adventure 1 in the Pathfinder ACG.


Video Games:
- Played a few games of War Thunder US/German Tanks.

- After watching the twitch stream of Star Wars Battlefront, I've decided I really want to buy a PS4!  (Destiny also looks nifty).  I've never been that great at console FPS games, but I figured I should start brushing up on my aim, and played a bit of the old Killzone3.


Comics/Books:
- I finished the Frostgrave short stories:  "Tales From The Frozen City".

  1. bones - Don't prime it. The Troll I got for my son did the same and so I tried painting directly on another model and it worked fine. So no primer on Bones!

    No Consoles for me. Selling our WiiU prior to Xmas and I've no regrets. I get WAY more painting done without video gaming in my house. My son gets more art done also. Win-win.

    1. Yep, that was exactly the problem... I primed it! Lesson learned, for sure!

      Sadly, I'm not having much luck convincing my wife that I "need" the latest Destiny Edition PS4 or the Star Wars Battlefront PS4 coming out next month, so no real console gaming for me either. =P
