Busy doing something. . . .

. . .  while  I wait for stuff to get here.  Getting back into the habit of painting again, and, as I said, I have been pouring out some plaster in Hirst molds.  As proof that I am doing something, instead of playing facebook games all day, I offer some photographic evidence:

When I have more done and painted (the terrain, since the minis aren't even fully base-coated yet), I will post a better pic.

Filling my time

Since I am waiting on various and sundry games, I need to do something to fill my time.  I am painting, but right now, it's mainly a make sure that all 40 small based Convergence infantry are fully primed black before starting on their base coat.  Not too thrilling there.

But I have also started pouring plaster in my Hirst Arts molds again.  I hope to have Space Hulk, Descent, and Star Wars boards done in a week or so - and then they are bound for Bartertown on eBay, because I want an airbrush and a compressor.

For all of those sets though, the pouring is the easy part - it is the assembly that takes all of the time.  I really need to find a way to speed that up.

The waiting game

Okay, so I got my copy of Ogre.  Got everything punched.  Realized I was missing some sheets of counters, had extras of others.  Oops.  I have notified SJG about it, and new ones will get to me at some point.  In the meantime, I still had enough to play.

So, I took it with me for Turkey Day.  It fits in the minivan, but it takes up a lot of space.  I still plan on carting it around with me, but I might get a copy of the pocket game for cons and the like.  The game is as fun as I remember, though I am having problems remembering how to take out the Ogre.   Not rolling a lot of 1s and 2s would help.

Still waiting on Wild West Exodus and Relic Knights.  RK is having delays (again), and the ship date is indefinite.  I refuse to get exited about it until I actually have the models in hand.  WWX is shipping, and they expect to have everything out the door in the next two weeks, so hopefully I get mine soon.

Because I wanted some old western terrain for WWX and Malifaux, I backed a campaign on indiegogo.  And, because my gators have been screaming for a riverboat ever since I started playing them, I have to get that too.  Looking forward to getting it in a few months.

January (or more likely March) should have Robotech Tactics and Rivet Wars showing up on my doorstep.  Rivet Wars might make January, but again, trying hard not to get exited about stuff until I have it.  Looking forward to both games though.

And last, I have some Convergence stuff on the way.   It's a good time to be a gamer.
