#StuffOnMyDesk 2017/05/25

It’s been a while since I’ve had time for one of these in fact I think it’s my first this year! I have been busy, at least it feels this way, so let’s see what I have been up too.


So I’ve assembled another Runewars core box. I should have painted them up but I was not in the mood for it. I’m running a Runewars intro event this weekend so at least they are all assembled 😉 One of my factions will be available for a friend to play as he has show interest in the game. The other will be kept if there are an uneven number of players then I will play so that no-one is left out.

I know, I should be lynched for storing them like this 😛

I’m going to try to run an event every month or so, hopefully interest will grow. That will mean I’ll have to actually get my army painted, If I’m the organiser I can’t have the only unpainted faction :P. The first expansions are already on their way to SA so this backlog is just going to get bigger if I don’t.

Since the event is a learning event I need to learn too so I’m re-reading the rules and going through the upgrades.


I’ve painted my first CHIBI!!! These are lovely little models. I’ve got about 20 of them to get through and they are actually a lot of fun to paint. It’s not a bad little game either.

I’m going to try to paint up all of the chibi like their character art.

I’m quite proud of this little guy, I’ve tried out a few new techniques and most of them worked, to some extent.


I needed to get the Heroes for this painted up before actually playing. An early game had us wondering which model belonged to whom because some of them are very similar.

pew pew pew

These are not finished. I was trying something new and messed up the weapons so I’ve just stopped. *sigh* I need to get back to them but I also need to study for my exams… Instead of doing either I find myself in front of the TV with a bag of chips. Oops.

Bumblebee has a chainsaw!!!

Other stuff

I bought foamcore!!! Finding this stuff is hard. The only place that has stock requires me to take a day off to go and buy it. So I bought 8 sheets. It’s very handy for the kid’s school projects and for making game inserts. I need to make some to speed up setup of some games and to try to pack expansions into core boxes. I’m running out of space!

So I’ve got a lot of different things on the go, but nothing is actually finished. I don’t know why I do this to myself 😛 I guess I just like new stuff and new projects. Maybe I’m a sucker for punishment. I need to prioritise. Make a list and work through it. Otherwise I’m going to keep running in circles.

Ok internet, let’s try this:

  • Study, finish exam.
  • Paint DOOM, the whole game.
  • Make an insert for DOOM.

This needs to get done before I buy another game or expansion. I’ve got a few things on order already but nothing more until this is done. Although, I’ve been waiting for Builders Warehouse to have the Father’s day specials so I can get an airbrush. That’s it.


Why am I laughing?


This might not end well….
