Short timescale project!

I bumped into Dale from KWC this morning and he reminded me that the club is having an open day on Sunday 27th August in an attempt to drum up some new members.

I had hoped it was going to be the end of september instead on a day when Graeme (Urisk) was free to do a joint game that people could join in with. Alas it will be a day when he is working so I was asked to prepare a game that can sit waiting to be played if people turn up (otherwise I will be joining in with someone else)

Anyway I have decided to do a DWMG (Doctor Who Miniatures Game) Especially with it happening the same weekend as the return of the Doctor to our TV's! It will be a fairly simple Doctor and Amy vs. The Daleks. Will need to prepare some cannon fodder for The Doctor to throw down in front of him!

Better start painting!!!

My return & Claymore!

Hello again!

Been away far too long but the job I started in April took over my life(In a bad way). My employer didn't think that people needed to find out the rota for the week till the day before, they would change shifts at last minute without telling you and then cut my hours because "someone told us you wanted less hours"

Anyway have left there now and start my new job as a postie in Kirriemuir on Thursday. This means I will have my evening, half a weekend and possibly even afternoons to have a life! Obviously this includes painting and gaming (maybe even blogging!)

I started my freedom with a trip to Claymore in Edinburgh. This gave me a chance to spend pennies on a Triad starter strike team for Urban War. I was informed that another stall had a couple of Triad bargains so went and picked up a squad of Hatamotos & the characters Lotus, Hiro Takahashi& Mayumi. Not a bad way to spend some money.

After Graeme & I were realeased from our stint at the KWC participation table (which won second place) during a moment of either braveness or stupidity Graeme and I delved into the Bring & Buy for a third or fourth time on the way to get food and noticed a few small tupperwares on a table with void/urban war contents! Two of them labled Jap/Sci-Fi/Triad. I thought £7 for both was worth buying so went ahead with it!

By the time we got food there was no hot food left so a packet of crisps for lunch and a seat so time to look in to the boxes! Here's a wee list of the contents!

1 x Dragon Blade
7 x Retainers with Naginata
7 x Retainers with Rifles
1 x sniper
1 x Oni Shogun Battlesuit with Sword
10 x Hatamotos
3 x Triad Boss (2 different styles)
6 x Kabuki Dolls

Using the prices on Wayland Games the two tupperware tubs come to a value of £107.85
