This Geek's week...


The Infant Aliens from Prodos Games' AVP game...


The Marines from AVP...
Modeling/Hobby:
- My copy of the AVP boardgame arrived after just 3 days, and I've dove right into making the custom bases and assembling the figures.  I'm currently working on the 5x Alien Stalkers...



Card/Board games:
- Played a game of Legendary Encounters (Alien), and man, it did NOT go well for my character!  I made it to the 2nd objective, then had an alien make it to the combat zone, followed by pulling a hazard, that sent 2 more aliens into the CZ as well... She did not survive the rest of the round!  The next 2 games were even worse, as I took a chestburster on turn 2 in one game, and shared a similar fate, taking another chestburster partway through the 3rd game too!  I finally managed to make it all the way to the Final Enemy in the 4th game, but he ended up doing me in.  Still, such a fun time!
Please?

- Played some Pokemon TCG with my daughter...

- I've been trying to find some local Weiss Schwarz players, but have been having no luck thus far.  I think playing this game is just not meant to be...



Stalker Aliens...
Video Games:
- On the Xbox, I've played a bit of The Division.  I've started to gear out my character, but I'm still not as hyped as I was.  Since I play solo, I'm missing out on a lot the game!  Perfect example being that I've had to pass up yellow gear drops in the DZ, simply because I knew, as a solo player, I'd never be able to extract it and I didn't feel like giving free stuff to the a-holes in that game!

- Also on Xbox, I downloaded The Wolf Among Us as one of this month's free games.  It's pretty interesting, and I like the comic book style!

The Preds....
- On my phone, I've played a little bit of Pokemon Shuffle, and MTG Duels.

- To get my WWII game fix, and War Thunder freezing up every time I load, I downloaded World of Tanks.  Played a few rounds of it, but still, not my favorite...

- Played several rounds of PTCGO.  They've really ramped up the speed since I've been away, and I'm not sure how I feel about it...



Books/Comics:
- Finished up my book on the "Year of Mercy", and have gone back to reading the 30k novel, "Betrayer".  (Not feelin' it though)
 
 
As always. be sure to check my twitter account on the right every now and then, as I often post my WIP pics on there first, giving twitter followers a first look at my new stuff! (and I do tweet daily)  Hopefully the AVP game will re-motivate my hobby side!  I'm also currently looking for a card game to actively play and put my resources into, but who knows if that will work out or not...

Until next time,

  1. Wolf Among Us is a really fun game. The Publisher's Walking Dead series is even better. (I want a daughter named Clementine!)

    Those AVP minis look amazing - such crisp sculpts!

    1. I was really impressed with the AVP minis too! I was a little scared at first, cuz I hate working with resin, but they were not too bad. I had 1 predator break at the ankle, but it was an easy fix to pin back in place, and one of the Aliens' tail broke in half, so I'm just going to model him as having it cut off. They actually sent me 11 aliens instead of 10, so he's an extra anyway...
