The title kind of feels how the last month has gone by. As usual, not a great deal of time to dedicate to the hobby. I’ve finally got round to building enough Maelstrom’s Edge models that I can have a starter game – with the wife ofc. It does always mean making and painting two forces up.
I’ve put together two small forces of 50 points for a starter game to learn how to play. The rulebook’s pretty complex, but is well designed and made to cover every rules possibility out there. Very comprehensive – but hard to learn at first.
Karist Forces: (50 points)
Epirian Forces: (50 points)
There’s also a mature Angel and a Hunter mech built – not for the starter game, more for me to find out how large they were so I can design a storage case around my collection.
The photo below shows how complex one of the small human size figures can be – in this case, the Karist Kaddar Nova leader figure seen built in the bottom right of the photo above.
I did manage to finish a couple of very quick and cheesy hobby projects. A set of 5 mines for a minefield in Bolt Action, and some piles of rubble for the 4Ground ruins. I know the mines are rather ‘exaggerated’ and highly visible but it makes it obvious what they are in the game.
I have realised though, with too many scenery projects on the go, I’m never sure what job to get on with next. I think the next thing that will appear on here will be the painted United States Dodge WC-51. It’s not fully glued together, but seems a decent model – except mine came without the front bumper so I hope the plasticard one I crafted will do.
And the scenery to work on…
Probably the only thing I actually painted was a T-70 X-Wing model. I bought an extra from eBay so I could paint one up in the Poe Dameron colours – it’s meant I lost most of this bank holiday weekend playing X-Wing again with my lad – except he was none too pleased when Poe died first in one of the games.
