I haven’t had the opportunity to game recently (other than my first 6e
massacre game), nor paint, nor do much but work and worry with moving. However I have carried my sketchbook pretty much everywhere.
Lately I’ve been very enamoured with some of the girls’ Doctor Who costumes. (Uber nerd alert) I’ve gone and I’ve completed the preliminary design for my own ‘ultimate’ Doctor Who costume. I’m super excited about it as I’ve seen no one else with the same idea on the web, at least.
Unfortunately, due to the move my sewing machine is still packed away in storage, so making it by Dragoncon this year was out of the question for certain. Currently my goal will be for Dragoncon 2013. Should be plenty of time. Of course there will perhaps be a twelfth Doctor by then, but hopefully that won’t be too much of a problem for me.
Sketches will follow eventually, especially after my drawing skills improve!
I have started trying to play a new game (Infinity). There are exactly 2 other players locally, but we are attacting more players.
So the basics. Infinity is a squad based tabletop combat game set in the dystopian future (blade runner, cyberpunk). This is what first got me aside from the models looking fantastic.
I have played other skirmish games (Malifaux and Warmachine) but I find I do not care for the steampunk stuff, the Victorian era holds little interest for me.
So where was I, oh yea, Infinity, the rules are super solid, and available for free on the website www.infinitythegame.com They also provide several other downloads and printouts to help you get going, free of charge.
My 2 gaming friends are playing Yu Jing and Ariadna, I am playing Aleph (more human than human). Super fun game, with lots you can do, and react to what the other player does.
Sorry I have not been on in forever, super busy playing games!!!!
