So I've been thinking recently about all things gaming. As you'll have seen from the recent posts from my esteemed colleagues we're branching out into a lot more non-GW games. This is mainly because we've looked at the costs involved and blanched.
Instead of £50 on a Land Raider we're spending £50 on a starter set and rulebook for a new game. In the last 6 weeks I've acquired Kings of War, Flames of War and Malifaux. We've also now played Dystopian Wars and Uncharted Seas so I'll be expanding them and taking a look at Firestorm Armada.
I've decided that I have enough 40K stuff for this year so instead I'm going to spend the next 6 months getting all these other game systems completely up to speed. Expect pictures very soon as today I've built my Malifaux Crew, painted 5 Dwarfs for Kings of War and stuck my fingers together with a base of Fallschirmjaeger for Flames of War. I shall also be basing and repainting my Prussian Empire fleet for Dystopian Wars soon: Eddie made such a good job of his that I need to up my game - which is brill cos that's why we do this right???
6 months of non-GW building and painting starts here. Watch this space!
