We actually finished the game! 😮 I lost, partially because we weren't playing with the extra bits to allow for more victory points to simplify things, but also because there was so much to keep track of I kept forgetting about various abilities. Still, keen for the next game!

Progress has been slow, but I finished the faces of the next four of my squad of Scions tonight and I am pretty damned happy with how good they look!

We were going to go play some X-wing at a friend's place with my new play board, but he wasn't feeling up for it so Kristina and I played some Warhammer Underworlds instead! Aelves versus filthy goatmen, and despite a strong start, it all fell apart at the end for me thanks to some terrible rolling on my part (and some really lucky rolling on Kristina's), and she won 11-9.our house darkroom gaming games workshop warhammer underworlds grashrak's despoilers myari's purifiers

Got our Warhammer Underworlds on again tonight! Kristina went back to the aelves and I played Ironsoul's Condemnors. The final score was 10-7 to Kristina, but it was not remotely as close as it sounds, I REALLY need to go in and tweak the Condemnors deck. Lotta suck in it that needs removing.our house darkroom gaming games workshop warhammer underworlds myari's purifiers ironsoul's condemnors

We played another (partial) game of Kill Team tonight! And for the first time EVER, everything was fully painted. 😮 We only got a turn and a half in thanks to us taking a while to set everything up, but we're definitely getting the hang of it. I was playing Death Guard, and they have a rule called "Disgustingly Resilient" where if they would lose a wound, you roll a D6 and on a roll of 5+ the wound is not lost. It doesn't matter how many wounds, just ANY wound. One of them was attacked and was going to be dealt 9 wounds (out of a total of 12), but my Disguisingly Resilient roll was amazing and I was able to reduce it down to 4. 😂

Okay I lied, I COULD be bothered breaking out the airbrush for one single miniature. She's all finished now! Next stop, the other thirteen members of the squad. 😅

I've finished off the test model for my new Scion squad, and I am absolutely STOKED at how well she came out, in particular her face and eyes! She's not FULLY finished yet, I still need to apply varnish and then put the snow sprinkles and winter bushes on the base (oops, and also paint the lens on the thing beside her head which I didn't notice I hadn't painted until I was looking at it just now), but I can't be bothered pulling out the airbrush and setting it up and cleaning it out again for just one single miniature. I'd signed up to Duncan Rhodes' Painting Academy (https://www.duncanrhodes.com) a couple of months ago, the videos are fantastic and clear and extremely well-produced, and I used his technique and colours for the face in particular. It's all of £4/month and there's a ton of videos and more added weekly.

We had Ben over again today for a Beanie visit and some Warhammer Underworlds. The Beanie visit went very well, we didn't even give Beanie any of his medicine and he'd pretty well calmed down inside of ten minutes! Warhammer Underworlds ended up being extremely close, Ben and I tied for the win on 10 glory, and Kristina got 9! And then we went to a pub near us for dinner and I had a burger and it was excellent. 👌🏻our house darkroom food rouse hill gaming games workshop warhammer underworlds burger lady harrow's mournflight the crimson court hrothgorn's mantrappers

There we go, the entire all-women squad of Scions is finished! Super-happy with my conversions here, next stop is to do a full zenithal base coat with the airbrush (full black undercoat followed by white sprayed from the just top 45 degrees or so of the miniature so it's highlighted where light would naturally fall).

Went over to our friend's place today for some more Wednesday night gaming, this time with me in an advisory position. He ended up winning 14-10, and both warbands were down to a single fighter at the end!
