So the reason posts have been so sparse lately is I plan on entering this year’s Last Painter Standing contest over at the Lead Adventure Forum. Trick is, none of the figs can have been shown on the internet prior to entering, and my latest brushwork has mostly been focused on entries. I don’t harbor any illusions of winning – there are far too many excellent painters out there – but I think my pjs can hold their own for a few rounds at least.
If you’re not a member at LAF, you should seriously consider joining. The site has avid gamers in every period, genre and scale. The ones I’ve encountered are great, creative folks. The forums focus on war gaming, while the controversial issues that usually constipate forums (politics, religion, porn and slagging companies) are kept to a minimum.
My gaming group is ramping up to do some serious Fantasy gaming using Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes. We’ve been running practice skirmishes to familiarize ourselves with the rules, and while I can’t post pictures of the adventuring parties, I did snap a few shots of some new terrain and several Baddies.
Metal Snob that I am, the adventurers are all metal Reaper figs while the bulk baddies that the table will generate are Reaper Bones figs. Sorry these aren’t the best pics. (Orcs aren’t very photogenic anyway) I’ll try to get better shots this weekend.
Wish me luck for the contest.
Have an excellent day.
