Post A Game of Thrones Boardgame and Sentinel Tactics Miniatures

So we played the Boardgame A Game of Thrones and it went, well not so good!

The game rules and turn flow were pretty easy to pick up and the game played pretty smoothly but it was definitely a learning game as far as strategy goes. I played House Baratheon situated in the middle on the east coast and without some alliances I think the houses in the middle will have a hard time winning meanwhile Stark in the North was pretty much left alone to spread out. Next time I think alliances will have to be made in the south and Stark will need to be checked early on. We shall see!

Both these pics are near the end of the game. I am the yellow pieces near the bottom of the picture. After a brief expansion I am being pushed back.

And finally not much left of Baratheon. Stark has expanded all through the north for the win.

I also finished painting up my Sentinel Tactics miniatures and for boardgame pieces I think they turned out pretty good.

The good guys.

Citizens(the bad guys!)

Baron Blade, bad guy.

The rest of the evil Citizens.


Next up is the Star Wars Edge of the Empire session on the weekend.

RPG's and Some Miniature Painting

I have been putting my hobby time into getting some painting done as well as some roleplaying though no miniature games on since last blog.

We had a character making session for Vampire the Masquerade (20th Anniversary Edition). Shawn is once again being the GM while most of the other players I have never played with before other than my wife Michelle and this is her first game she has played in quite a few years other than the odd session I ran with her and my son.

I ran another session of Star Wars Edge of the Empire continuing the Beyond the Rim adventure from FFG. The players should be finished in 2 to 3 sessions and then we will see what comes next!

I also ran another session of Dragon Age and will be running another one soon. I have decided to increase the experience awards so the characters can level up a little quicker allowing me to tell a story in a reasonable amount of time considering how often we play which is only about once a month. I am going to start to weave in a larger story arc with this adventure and now I have Set 3 so I can tell a full story, if it lasts that long.

I have primed some figures for Muskets & Tomahawks to start to bring my British force up to 400 points from 200.

The other painting I have been doing lately is painting up the figures for Sentinel Tactics. We played this game for my birthday gathering and I think the look will be improved with painted figures for the next time we play.

Tonight Tristan and I are off to play a 6 player game of FFG's A Game of Thrones Boardgame. This is the first time any of us have played so it should be lots of fun.
