Man, I had really hoped to get in one more post in January, but it was simply not to be. But that is okay, as lots of stuff is going on. First off, we have a new President. This means I'm spending less time on facebook as it's all filled with political crap. I don't think it matters much on which side of the fence you fall, the whole topic is just so toxic right now. I'm done with it. Therefore I am spending more time on gaming. Yay me!
Kings of War - well I decided to take my new Dark Elf army over for kings of war day. However, we only had three players, and not feeling my best, I decided to sit it out and help out a new player that had showed up. Thankfully, he brought Twilight Kin (dark elves) so I got to play them sorta anyhow. :)
Poor Nick, his Tomb Kings got beat again. But it was a good match and things just fell the way of the dark elves in the end. That is a nice solid army and one that I will happily play. However, now that our new guy is going to be bringing them, I have to go and figure out a different army to bring. Someone requested Orcs, so I'll give them a go next time. However, I may use my herd models as they are simply more table ready than my orcs.
I still haven't found a buyer for my abyssal army yet. A few people were interested, but nothing solid came out of it. I may have to go Ebay. Bleah. If I do, I'll also be putting up my Mantic Enforcer models too. Got them in a Kickstarter a while back and just never did anything with them. Might as well find them a good home.
Pathfinder - finally got to play pathfinder again with my new group. We hit level four and I have to had it to Matt, he gave us one doozy of a fight. The only downside to the pathfinder group is that they like to play late, like midnight late. I'm old. I don't do midnight games anymore. Just wrecks my whole weekend. :)
DDO - well the Clemson DDO group is still chugging along. Its like herding cats, I swear. There are three of us that are pretty committed to playing. The others....well not so much. Shame too because I really like it when everyone makes it. We don't take it too seriously and try to even inject some roleplaying into it. Last time we played, the little kobold shamans on elite were throwing lightning bolts around. One nailed my poor sorcerer in the back and I was a floating spirit stone. I laughed out loud. It was just so unexpected and funny to see happen. It was fun, which is the whole point of playing. So I'm gonna keep herding those darn cats.
GW - so I do kinda keep an eye on GW's announcements and such...mostly just the 40K stuff. Well they just released a new model for one of their primarchs. The funny thing is, he looks like a grown up version of Joffrey from Game of Thrones. It's creepy.
TV - all of my TV shows are back! So now its back to watching just hordes of bad shows with the wife unit. One of the few stand outs though is Magicians. My daughter and I watched it last season and really enjoyed it. Its definitely one of the more mature shows, but I like the writing and the story makes sense most of the time. Which is a whole lot more than the DC comic shows that the CW produces. I mean I want to support comic book shows as much as I can...but damn the writers just fail so much. :)
Okay, so that's it for now.
