I love Amazon. They have a wish list. I put all this stuff on it, the Baroness can just hit "buy". I've been coveting Smallworld for awhile. I have played many times, but the $60 price tag always threw me off. Target had for $35.
Being a great fan of Lunch Money, Epic Spell Wars looked like the same thing with magic and great artwork, done deal.
"Maurice" I am still reading through but can't wait to try. So far, everything I dreamed of (Might and Reason meets Commands and Colors) and more.
"Popular Front". Read good reviews on Boardgame Geek. We played last Thursday and it was a great little game. Simple but lots of strat-tee-gery.
"Dux Bellorum" and "A World Aflame" are Osprey game titles. Probably crap, but nice pictures.
Same for "Condotierre". Frank Chadwick is pretty old school as far as rules go. Got mostly for the pictures and OOBs.
Had to get the Conan Collection book and another Renaissance title to get motivated to finish my Italian Wars armies.
Speaking of mins...
What I painted over the break:
For Pulp Alley. She just has to be named Natasha.
Famed archeologist/adventurer Arkansas Bob
Lady Virginia Dare
Those Pig Iron Fellas I been working on.
a Scientist suitable for numerous genres.
And finished the much promised library for the Baroness. She was pleased, and so much celebration in Unkerlant was had.
with it done I had time/space to organize the minis:
Now the bad. On Christmas Eve my Dad had a stroke. This pretty much put a damper on the rest of the time off. He is better, but it has been devastating to the family. Anyone who has dealt with this and the weight of a possible nursing home stay knows what I'm talking about. Parkinson's had already robbed a great man of much of his fire and this was the twisting of the knife. Thus, my lack of posting. Thanks for any thoughts/prayers in advance.
