Busy busy busy...

Hello all!

I'm afraid that's there's not much to report this week, well there is, but there isn't much time to tell you all about it!

I've been gaming and painting as per usual, I played some more 40k this week at the Cross Swords club, as per usual I borrowed an Army and promptly lost. This time my opponent was Chris and my army du jour was Space Marines. Yes, dear reader, this week I must ask your forgiveness as I have succumbed to the filthy list that is the Space Marines. I must say that I can certainly see what all the fuss is about, lots of saving throws means that you can push them around the table with impunity. However, it does take a bit of the fun out of the game, and I must commend Chris for not slapping me in the face when after a couple of minutes of rolling dice, I managed to save every single shot on numerous occassions.

I'm getting a bit of a feel for 40k now, and I've decided that rather than initially go for a Guard army (though it's definately on my 'to do' list), I fancy something faster and nastier. To that end, I've decided to go in for some Dark Eldar action. I have since thrown a few of my old metal miniatures (from the unpainted pile) on ebay to fund this new endeavour. This serves the double purpose of clearing out the unpainted to pay for the new; roughly within the bounds of Frugal Gaming.

In other news, I've nearly finished my Blood Bowl team and I have some Necromunda terrain that I've been working on for a while which is almost done.

The reason for all the rush this week is because I've had an Open University assignment to get in, fortunately, I'm doing a design course at the moment so I get to make models. For my latest assignment, one of the tasks was to design a children's playground, so after numerous sketches, here's a model I made to illustrate my idea:

All the best, look forward to next week's post which is my 6 month (half-way) review!

And there I was thinking from the little picture I saw at first that you had made a Bloodbowl pitch...

That is a cool playground piece! Did you think of maybe adding a ladder in addition to the stairs or maybe a cargo net between the slides?
