First batch of stuff on eBay, far later than I wanted, but better late than never.
So, today I slammed out the goblins for Games Workshop‘s new The Hobbit tie-in game, Escape from Goblin Town. The only goblin I didn’t do was the Goblin Scribe. He’ll be done by someone else. I was part of a group of painters who are doing the minis for Crazy Squirrel Game Store, my FLGS.
My back is killing me, and I have a pretty ugly headache. I skipped lunch and had a pretty late dinner. I volunteered to do the goblins thinking they’d be something I could do quick and easy, but also expecting to have until the 15th. However, I learned after accepting the deal that they were needed by Saturday for demo games. So, I hammered them out. The bases need work, but others will handle that tomorrow.
Meanwhile, I think I’m going to go get a couple of acetominophan (sp?) pills and call it a night.
So, until 8AM this morning, I took advantage of the free weekend of Endless Space, a Master of Orion/Starflight (2)/Spaceward Ho! -style space exploration game. The game is beautiful to look at, but horrible to play. If there is a way to direct your exploratory vessels, I couldn’t find it. Seemed a pretty weak game to me, but maybe it’s the Mac port. Either way, I tried to get the most out of the free weekend.
While the gameplay was lackluster, I got a number of ideas out of it for StarSea. Additional factions, star travel ideas, wyrd-technology ideas, and more. It’ll take a while for me to process it all, and I’m going to look at that wiki above to see what more I can learn about the history in the game, as well as any plot (if there really is one). I’d like to know there was more point to beating my head against the wall than what I experienced.
That’s all for now. Just had to discuss my experience. 🙂

Oops! Looks like last night was the Penultimate NaBloPoMo, which makes tonight the last post!
So, I did a few touch ups on the Skelies this morning and gave them the spritz. They are currently in my bathroom with the window cracked, letting the stench waft away. I’ll take them in tomorrow for judging in a few days.
Other than that, it’s been a day with friends and their kids. No real thought on anything gaming, except advancing a couple of characters for D&D.
The daily updates have been fun to do, but right now, I’ve pretty much run out of subject matter. I think I’m going to take a week or so off and see if I can recharge a little.
Thanks for reading, and thanks for your comments this month. See you soon.
