Weekend Catchup: Terrain Plans, Miniature Block & Monster Hunting

Good Monday everyone!

So it's the start of a new working week, and boy what a weekend. You see my family and I don't do so well in the heat, and this weekend being at an almost constant 26-30oC means that we spent the whole time struggling to sleep, or actually do anything at all.

Not fun.

But that's not to say I haven't been busy!

So on Friday I decided to acknowledge my creeping wants to give Infinity a go.

A large part of this is because of my plans for a gaming table: think a flyover, with a large skyway road or two intercrossing and high rise buildings filling up the space with walkways and ramps connecting everything.

I spent a good few hours looking for choices, finding websites with options and throwing things in baskets just to see the prices; £105 here, £68 there, all in all, a lot of expense.

It was then that I remembered Papercraft!

Those who remember this time last year I was busy building a Malifaux Streets board with Papercraft:

There was a lot about this board that I loved, and so I quickly took to the same websites I bought these templates for, £10 here, £3 there, the WHOLE thing came to about £20 and not including paper, ink etc will have enough to make what should be the entire board!



Then we have my issue of Miniature Block.

If you're thinking, this is what I mean when you try to decide on which models to collect and ate stuck.

For me almost every faction has models I like.

I love things like this one from PanO:

The thing is, PanO in general doesn't appeal to me.

Next we have the ALEPH:

There's something about these augmented humans that really appeals to me.

But there's also the Nomads, who have such a wide variety if looks from very cool looking humans, massive mechs and even anthropomorphic characters:

But then ALEPH do have acces to:

So yeah... Kinda stuck as is...


So what else have I been doing? Well let's not forget The Secret World:

I recently reinstalled this game about a month ago and have been loving it!

If you have yet to play this game and you like MMOs I seriously suggest trying it out. It's super fun!

So what have we been doing on this over the weekend? Well we hunted down a Wraith that was hunting down a quest giver, we also went to a fairground that is channelling occult energy, travelled into the dream world and released the spirits of trapped children.

There is so much more, like taking on a massive Cthulhu Beasty and releasing a haunted house from it's curse etc that we've been doing over the past few weeks, but it's all awesome!


Anyway, that's all from me today, so on that note, stay safe and I'll see you Cryptside!
