Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game

We played Warhammer Quest: The Adventure Card Game last weekend.  It is a four player card game (with dice) from Fantasy Flight Games.  We only got about 75% through it since it was the last game we started and it was getting late.  I played the Warrior Priest, my character from the original Warhammer Quest back from the 1990s.  I even brought out my old miniature to hang out while we played....  The game is fun and similar to other card/dice combination games from Fantasy Flight, such as Blood Bowl: Team Manager or the Space Hulk: Death Angel card game.  We got down the mechanics and are ready to go for our next gaming session.

Relic Knights - Shattered Sword

I recently finished a number of Shattered Sword models for Relic Knights by Soda Pop Miniatures.  I used the dipping method, using Minwax PolyShade.

My daughter also painted her ever first models, (using the same dipping method).  They didn't turn out too bad for her first attempt at painting miniatures.  She only spent 5-10 minutes painting each model; although I painted and finished all the bases for her.

Star Wars Armada Wave III Preview

Fantasy Flight Games just previewed Wave III for Armada. The preview shows two examples of the newly introduced ship type - the Flotilla. The Imperial Assault Carriers Expansion Pack includes Gozanti-class cruisers and the Rebel Transports Expansion Pack includes GR-75 medium transports. Also shown are Fleet Support upgrades, which allow you to coordinate with and support the other ships in your fleet.

The big question -- will Wave III include any other ships, or is this it?  I think FFG will likely preview the other half of this wave in the next week or so.

Cheap Custom Guild Ball Mat

Last weekend I created a small 2x2 mat for Guild Ball, a game that I'd like to test out in the next few months.  I made the mat out of green felt (from Joann), using a white fabric pen to draw in the lines.  Using the 50% coupon, in all it came out to cost just about $12 total.  I picked up the Mason Starter Set and assembled them last weekend.

Not bad for twelve bucks....

Galactic A-Holes in 15mm

I recently completed painting all five of the 15mm Galactic A-Holes from Highlander Studios.  These will be used in 15mm Superhero campaigns.
