Good evening & welcome to this months news, there's an old saying" that no news is good news" but in this case that's not really so as from a hobby point of view I've still not done much, but I am messing around with different things & feel that surely (I know don't call me surely lol) if only slowly I am pulling away from the hobby blackhole.
So then what is this news post going to be about you ask ? well its going to be different to the normal, but in a world that is at this moment very different then normal maybe that's ok, tbh I'm winging is this post & that might mean I'll ramble a bit so please bare with me, as for me its another step in the right direction :)
Even through the dark days of not doing anything hobby wise I still pick up some things & one of those things was a hotwire table I picked up from a guy I know that had ordered two by a mistake, & that's one of the things I've been messing around with, this brings me on to something else that I'm also trying to get the hang of & that's Greenstuff rollers.
Greenstuff rollers are designed to be used with, yep you guessed it greenstuff but also work very well on other things but be warned are not as simple to use as they might look on u-tube videos, but at least even if its only trying to get the hang of using the hotwire table & the rollers it is something hobby related, another plus from doing this is that from time to time I've picked up some models & did a bit of painting, so as you see its baby steps but its something.
Another thing I want to cover in this post is Larger then Life the Directors Cut from Two Hour Wargames, now this is really more of an RPG then a table top game, in fact most of this game is played out away from the table, this had me puzzled for a long time as to how I might do something on this blog from the game & then I remembered that Vagabond had done a series of NUTS games while he was an hols & had done write ups on them but with no pictures other then little, I'll call them plans on bits of paper.
This gave me an idea that I briefly mentioned some months back called Radio Days, so basically what Radio Days is going to be is stories with no pictures & I have to say that I think it a very fitting way to cover this game as it really is very story driven, here's a little out take from the first episode.
Karl Timperman stirred, as the ringing sound came again he reached out switched on the bedside lamp & looked at his watch, which showed the time was 6:24 am. Who would be phoning at this hour of the morning he though as he got out of bed & headed for the living-room to answer the phone.
Karl "Karl Timperman"
Woman's voice "Karl its Esther Labelle, something awful has happened, I was wonder if you be so good as to come over to the house"
Karl " Do you want to tell what's wrong Esther"
Esther "I'd prefer not to say over the phone, but its very urgent could you come at once"
Karl could hear the anxiety in her voice, as she replied. Karl"I just have a quick shower & shave & I'll be on my way" Esther" Thanks Karl" then a click as she hung up.
Now I don't want to give anything away here but I'll cover what you've most likely guessed, In Larger then Life the Directors Cut the first thing you got to do is make up a star, unless your using one that you had made up before.
