And Here I Go Again

The last little while has been busy with real life stuff getting in the way of my hobby time so I have been doing a little bit of this and that as time permits but no major projects under way.

I've been very slowly putting my 15mm Flames of War German mobile AA together and also putting together a 28mm 6pdr AT gun for my WWII Canadian force I am building. Hopefully soon I am going to give the Bolt Action skirmish rules a try with either Eric, who has Germans, or Chet in which case it will be my Canadians vs my Russians.

This last weekend I went to Halcon in Halifax for my 3rd year as a volunteer on the gaming floor. This time I went for all three days. Chet and I did game demos for Malifaux, X-Wing and Zombicide. It was fun though I hardly had any voice and Chet had pinched a nerve in his neck so Chet did most of the speaking and I did the reaching! I met some nice people and put some faces to people I only knew by name. Unfortunately I used my phone for the picture taking at the con and they didn't turn out that great.

Eric and I are planning on getting in a game of 15mm Napoleonics soon using the Lasalle rules and we are getting our respective armies together.

Another activity that has been sucking up my time is playing Mass Effect on the PS3. I have had ME2 for some time but about a month ago I gave it another try and it sucked me in, playing it through multiple times and for a recent birthday my wife bought me the trilogy so I am starting with ME1 and going to play through the whole story with 1 or 2 characters.

Well that is about it for now and hopefully I am back on a semi regular posting schedule once again.

Just a quick note to say between work, colds and computer troubles I haven't been able to post as you can tell but things seem to be getting under control so soon I will put up a post Hal-con 2013 report were Chet and I demoed X-Wing, Malifaux and Zombicide.
