This Geek's Week...

I finally gave in to my Halo cravings and bought an Xbox One...




Modeling/Hobby:

- Worked more on my Goblin Warband for Frostgrave, finishing up 2 of the 8 goblins.  I also finished up a fountain for one of the scenarios.

- I've been reading "Mouse Guard" to my daughter, and picked her up some of reaper's mouslings to use in Frostgrave.  She basecoated them, but wants me to do the detail work.


Video Games:

- I got an Xbox one (early Christmas gift to myself) along with Star Wars Battlefront, and the Halo collection.  My gamer tag is "WuhSawBe" if you ever wanna play...

- Downloaded the 40k Titan game: Freeblade, and the Star Wars Battlefront companion.  Although I haven't played much of it, I highly recommend Freeblade.  It's pretty fun to walk around in a giant behemoth of destruction!  The SWB companion is pretty fun as well, and if you play the console game, you may as well check it out too...


Books/Comics:

- I've started reading Halo:Cryptum.

- I read the Halo graphic novel, but it was a bit disappointing...


** I'm headed out of town for Thanksgiving, so there won't be much to post in the way of geekery for the next week or so.  Have a happy Thanksgiving holiday everyone!

This Geek's Week...



 Modeling/Hobby:
- Worked on my Khorne Bloodreavers for AoS.

- Worked on my Italians for FoW, finishing up the semovente 90/53's...

- The Goblins I needed to finish up my Frostgrave warband arrived (finally), so I've started working on them a bit...


Tabletop games:
- Played a 1/2 game of Frostgrave with my daughter.  She lost interest part way through.  10v10, despite it being her idea, was just a little too much for her...

- Played some Saga, Teutonic Knights vs Mongols, and once again faced off against mass shooting!  It was actually pretty close, but still an 11-14 loss for me.  (Anything less than a 3 pt difference is a draw). So far, out of 15 games, I've only won two.  Needless to say, I'm not very good at Saga...


Card/Board Games:
- Played a game of Xenoshyft, and managed to survive and win with 4 hp left on the base...

- Picked up the Halo version of Bang, to take on my trip out of town...
 
Until Next Time,

Age of Sigmar - Hobby Progress!


I've been plugging away at the AoS stuff, and have recently finished up all bu the Reavers from the Khorne starter stuff.  Without further blabbing, here's my Bloodsecrator, Bloodstoker, and Blood Warriors.  (How many more times can I say the word: Blood?)


All in all, I'm pretty pleased with how they all came out.  As I mentioned earlier, all that is left to finish out of my initial khorne models are the Bloodreavers.  Not sure what I'll do after those are completed.  I may end up picking up a second AoS starter, or I may end up getting a slaughterpriest, maybe some more warriors (if I don't get a second starter), or maybe some Skullcrusher cav.  I'm not sure yet...

Until next time,

This Geek's Week...


Pokemon + Battletech... why not?

Modeling/Hobby:
- Worked more on my AoS Khorne stuff, finishing up the Bloodsecrator, Bloodstoker, and the 5x Warriors...

- Worked a bit on my FoW Italians.  I finished up the two ammo carriers for the semovente 90/53's as test models for the weathering powders... 

The Knights pushed the Franks back between the towers...

Tabletop Games:
- Played a game of Saga, Teutonic Knights vs Franks.  I tried a large, MSU Hearthguard army, but it didn't work...


Card/Board Games:
- Played a few games of the Pokemon TCG with my daughter...


Video Games:
- Played some War Thunder, German Air.  I'm not sure why I keep playing WT, since I don't really ever seem to enjoy it...

- Dug out the old Wii for my daughter...

- Played a bit of Smash Bro's and Pokemon on the DS.  I downloaded Mewtwo in smash bro's.  I also ordered the premium edition PersonaQ game for the DS.  Finally, I tried the demo of the new DBZ game on the DS, but found it pretty "meh".  I also gave Yo-Kai watch a try, but it lacks of the "nostalgia" of Pokemon for me personally....
 
Until Next time,

AoS Hobby Progress - Khorne Bloodbound





Since going half-in on an already cheap AOS box (and having little else to paint on my desk) I've working almost exclusively on my Khorne models.  AoS really has reopened some of the GW floodgates for me, as they were fun models to assemble and paint, which has led to want to grab another AoS starter box, probably the Betrayal at Calth when it comes out, and maybe give the 40k LCG another go!  While I still have plenty of work left to do before the rest of the box is done, I figured I would go ahead and show the two models I have completed thus far: the Khorgorath and the Khorne Lord.

Up first, is the Khorgorath, in all his GORY-glory...


Sorry, I snapped the pic before adding the grass...

This Geek's Week...

Yep, my daughter has her own FoW tanks...


Modeling/Hobby:
- Worked more on my Age of Sigmar stuff, finishing up the Khorgorath and the Khorne Lord.

- Built some teleportation markers for one of the Frostgrave scenarios. 


Tabletop Games:
- Played a game of Saga vs a shooty Welsh army.  Mass amounts of shooting are really just the bane of my Teutonic Knights.  I also really just didn't play all that well either, and I still think I need to switch things up with my army...

- Played a game of "Kidhammer 40k" and a game of "FoW-lite" with my daughter...


Video Games:
- Played some more of the Drop Assault game, and a little bit of Carnage on my iPhone. I also downloaded "Kerrunch" the Bloodbowl game, though I was not really feelin' it and deleted it.

- Played a few rounds of War Thunder US/German Tanks, but got kinda bored.

- Played a bit of GW2...

- Played a bit of Pokemon on the DS...
 
Until Next time,
