Slightly late this week as adulting got in the way over the last two days...
Workbench currently looks like this -
|Kinda sparse, right?|
The last 6 of the Ral Partha Europe Blighthaven miniatures waiting on a wash drying, then just highlights and layers and stuff to finish the full job off. The end is in sight. I've already finished up the Town Guard set, and the first 4 Heroes from this pack.

The stout hearted men of Blighthaven, resplendent in their 'official' colours. Well, that's my claim at least seeing as these are for the webstore. I went with a bright green and white colour combination to evoke the 'Blight' and 'Haven' of the name, along with a selection of drab browns and linen to represent more simple, hardwearing clothing. No decals this time, all the shields were hand painted.
I've also finished off the first 4 minis (for the mathematically challenged) from the Questing Hero pack, mainly because I was using a lot of the same colours as the Town Guard, so seemed less wasteful.

|Pretty sure one of the two groups here is better equipped to deal with things that go bump in the night...|
Gamingwise, managed another 3 games since last week. Thursday night we headed over to Jimboba's for drinks and games and a catch-up, resulting in me being able to cross 2 more board games off the #hobbyresolution2019 list, (Zombicide: Black Plague and Mythic Battles: Pantheon) as well as indulging in a lot of planning for gaming ideas for the future. Mostly 15mm, but he was desperately trying to sneak some individually based and magnetised 6mm in there too...

I also managed a third game, this time versus Sam, when I was dropping off his warband at the club. We played A Song of Blades & Heroes, a special scenario involving collecting explosive barrels. The cowardly sniping of my Leader saw a cascading morale failure which turned into an all out rout of my warband. So much for being Fearless Barbarians...

Moving forwards, we are looking at playing more ASoB&H, then using those warbands to try out Dragon Rampant (or Hero Rampant if you will, using one figure per unit) before expanding to full DR armies, then making them playable for other games like God of Battles, Warlords of Erehwon and SAGA: Age of Magic when it is releases next month. I'll pick up Thud & Blunder too (probably at Carronade) and that'll add another set of rules to try. So I've been building up my Beastmen in preparation.
We are also planning more boardgaming, with Rising Sun being on the agenda for the next meet-up, although I'm obviously going to try and sneak Blood Rage and Chaos in the Old World in too.
So yeah, that's it really. I have something I 'wood' like to talk about, but I'll save that for it's own post.
