I’m still missing he point in some ways.
In others I’m hitting it for a home run.
“What? Talk sense man”… I hear you wonder
My last post, regarding Oldhammer and the 3rd edition Fantasy Rules and Rogue trader rules.
Having spent a fair while surfing around various gaming blogs, I find the majority (Especially in the US) have a definate competitive bent, so I figured I’d return to the blog with an opinion piece:
Competitive vs non-competitive play
I’ll admit that nowadays and in hindsight since day one, I’ve been a non-competitive gamer.
I’ve tried competitive play, and usually ranked towards the bottom at the few tournaments I’ve been to, which to be fair at those positionings I’ve met opponants thatare usually more interested in having a laugh than winning.
It’s also one of the reasons I tend to stay away from internet forums – they seem to be nothing more than discussion grounds as to which cookie-cutter list/army is the strongest. So, I avoid them.
I’m not interested, and trawling through the amount ofx is better than y or z sux, y roxs! Posts, or the sheer number of GW-hate (That could be the subject for entirely seperate opinion piece however :)) that seems to come out on them, I just don’t feel it’s worth it.
It’s a game people. We’re pushing around little plastic army-men.
Yeah.. I said it.
See how ludicrous it sounds when you break it down to a simple blurb?
So why get so up tight about having to win?
Yeah, it’s nice to win… But winning too often can get stale.
It’s been kinda coming on for a while….
I’m putting Warped Reality on Hiatus for an indefinate period. It’s not that I’ve run out of stuff to do hobby-wise, but I’ve lost the drive & enthusiasm to keep trying to blog about it, rather than just do it…
So, for now, it’s so long…..
Hmm, perhaps I could have picked a better title, it reads like it’s some sort of hentai/furry slash-fic…… (No.. Don’t google that…… really….)
I’ve got to say, I’m impressed.
the tubes/tentacles are semi-flexible – but that’s partly a property of the pro-create I used to make them, but it could come in handy for flexing them into place on models. I imagine, if I used either a harder mix, or something like milliput superfine they would be rock hard – and definitely need putting in place before they dry.
I’ve also seen, while getting the links for this, the new design of fur sculpting tool
stuck me as something that I may order when I really start on with my beastmen. Mind you, the texture plates may be enough for the minotaurs (I’d prefer mine to be a little hairier)
Phew… Weekend’s over. And it was rather jolly fun all around… Read more
Guess who’s got tickets
Planning to make copious notes and a load of piccies, I’ve been looking forward to this since the tickets came out. Should be a good weekend, certainly going to be packed given the announcement has been made that BL has sold out of tickets now.
Had a look at the planned schedule, so I could figure what I wanted to go and see, and theres one thing thats had me pondering:
Now, I’ve been trying to think what it might be, given Forge World have already let out the news about the Heresy books they are doing.
Lego 40K video game (Speaking as someone with all the Lego Starwars, Pirates etc games;That would be AWESOME!)
or something else??
I’ll let you know when I know
Wow, I’ve actually managed to keep myself to the promise of making this a regular feature *grin*
Anyhow, lots of little bits of progress since last week. I’ve finished off the Word Bearers squad, Chaos Lord and Boris, and more work on various bits.
So, without further ado;
This is going to be what I hope is a (semi) regular (ish) feature on Warped Reality – What’s on my painting table & under the brush at the moment…
There are 2 main projects currently – my Talabheim Empire army, and my Word Bearers Chaos Marines. Along with a few figures for Mordheim and Call of Cthulhu
Ok, lets try this again and hope it doesn’t vanish when I try and publish it…
Yes, Warped Reality has had another hiatus over the summer. Sue me, I’ve been having fun.
The main thing, gaming wise has been us going to our first weekend Larp event in 11 years, and the release of 6th Edition Warhammer 40k and the Dark Vengence box to go along with it.
