I’m still working on figuring out what I should drop from my comic pulls and what I should keep. No post tonight.
We’re in a new month. I do have picks this week, but sadly, I am going to start to weed out titles once again. There will probably be another post about what titles are going to be dropped and why.
But in the meantime, here are my picks for this week.
I have to say it is always fun to find out what you had suspected. In my case, I stumbled across a PDF walk through for the board game…
No post tonight while I think of something to post.
Post with 1 note
In January, I wrote about a project that one of the X-Wing players, Jon, has been working on for the past few months. Sunday, we got to play test the scenario once again before it’s convention debut in two weeks.
The scenario is a recreation of the second Death Star battle. The layout, consisting on a Death Star surface and interior tunnels running to the central core, is a staggering 18 feet long.
The layout is staggering, and fantastic. Jon did a lot of detail work on the surface and creating turrets for the rebels to evade or destroy. And, just as the second Death Star was under construction in Return of the Jedi, this Death Star has the look of being under construction as well.
This layout also gave me an excellent surface backdrop to model the two B-Wings that I had modified earlier this weekend.
I have to admit that the rebels probably would have done a bit better if I had played my Millennium Falcon ships a bit better. But, I had a decent plan for the B-Wings which managed to slow down the scenario.
This play test of the Jon’s scenario ran us close to four hours. Sadly, the rebels did not manage to win the day this time.
The slide show that follows are pictures of this layout, along with a few of my modified B-Wings.
I saw this modification on the Google+ Star Wars X-Wing Miniatures group and really wanted to try it out.
The B-Wing miniature does not have a lot of maneuverability, but it makes up for it with a lot of fire power and armor. In essence, it is a mini-tank. I have seen a lot of people take these ships into simulated combat, and victory.
This week, we dive back into the European music scene once more.
PAIN is the project of musician Peter Tägtgren, vocalist and guitarist for the band Hypocricy. The project’s sound is a combination of heavy metal, techno and electronic music. while the CDs are predominantly Tägtgren, a touring band was formed so that they could support Nightwish during the Dark Passion Play tour.
In the past week, the new trailer for the newest Godzilla movie premiered, and it has me quite excited.
There are three big reasons why I’ll probably go see this movie.1) It’s Godzilla
Godzilla movies are my guilty pleasure. I have seen almost all of the Toho movies, many multiple times. I still love to watch Destroy All Monsters
After last week’s misadventure, things are back on track as I got some new books to take a look at this week.
I have been building my game collection for the past year or so. I have picked up card games and board games. Some have been games that allow for solo play, others I’ve played with friends and in groups. And some of them still wait for their turn to be played… whenever that may be.
In spite of everything I have picked up already, there are still some games that I want to buy for my collection…
