Another Week (or so) in Hobby – 2.2.17

Well, winter has relented for the last week or so. Snows are all melted for now so I got out for a couple of chilly rounds of disc golf. 
On the hobby table nothing has really changed. I hadn’t really gotten time to do much hobby stuff. But I did get my long awaited Kickstarter “TIKO” 3D printer. (About a full year behind schedule). 


I’ve only begone to play with this printer. It so much reminds me of the early 80’s and getting my hands on my first home computer (TI-99-4a). Lots of exploring to do with this.



I have only made some basic things so far. But after I get things figured out and dialed in I’ll have a full review. For now it’s just exciting to figure it out. 

My hope is to use it to make terrain and gaming stuff. My wife wants to play with making some earrings and stuff too.

This Week in Hobby – 10.18.16

It’s been a rainy stormy week here in the Pacific Northwest … I spent more time preparing things for the storm than doing any hobby work.


But I did do some minor painting on these two DarkAge Brood Sawblades. My push to get all the Brood done is slowly moving forward. 


But, I picked these up on eBay which kinda sets that goal back a little.  These pick-ups finish my Brood. I now have all the current choices for Brood in DarkAge. 


Along with these miniature picks – I grabbed this set for my Infinity USAriadna. I’m hoping that I can get some mobile speed into my list soon. 


On top of all that I received my “This Is Not A Test” Kickstarter this week. I’ve had just a few moments checking it out. Next time I’ll do a quick breakdown of what I picked up.  I love Kickstarter stuff … sometimes you wait quite a long time for stuff – but it’s always good stuff. And with the time delay sometimes it’s a nice surprise waiting in the mailbox. 


BloodBowl – Stunty Leeg Week 4. Well not a lot to say about this one – TöeJam loss yet again. This time a blow out against another Goblin Cheaters team the “Red Cloud Revers”. 



I’m beginning to feel the grind with this BloodBowl season.  And my lack of playing this game regularly really shows. I’m thinking this will be the last league of BloodBowl I’ll be joining for awhile. One off games – sure. But league play really requires you to “know” the game. I simply don’t have the time to devote to BloodBowl. On top of that – their are so many other games I like to play… it would be hard to justify time to play more BloodBowl. 

I say this now – but a new edition of BloodBowl is due out by the end of the year. Maybe a good human team will be a nice change?

This Week in Hobby – 04.12.16

A quick update to things … 

  
I finished up this bike for my Mavericks unit. I should be able to get the rider done this week as well. 

 I also finished up these two minis last week …

 

The Dozer, Field Engineer with his Traktor Mul Control Device. 

  
And this guy … 112, Emergency Service (Doctor). 

I’ll try to get better angles on these guys when I get the light booth set up properly. 

Next up, Today I received my Kickstarter from Boneshop – the Bastion – Titan Wall Set.  All in good condition and on time!  

  

It’s a highly detailed resin molded model kit for use with 6mm games like Epic Armageddon. 

There is a great set of fan organized rules called Net Epic Armageddon which you can find online with free rules. 

I spent an hour or two cleaning up the parts and dry fitting things. I couldn’t help but to pull out my Epic Space Marines and Orks for a photo op!

   
 
And here are a few more shots after I cleaned things up and fit them better. 

   
    
 
I’m looking forward to getting this set painted for the gaming table soon. I’ll first try to see what I can do to possibly magnetize the elevator bits. 
All in all it is a cool set. I’m thinking I may head over to Boneshops website for a few other things at some point.
