Sorry for the wordy title, I've got a lot on my mind.
My hard copy of To the Strongest came in over the weekend. Simon Miller had a special and threw in some laser cut chits. I've had the PDF's for awhile, but have been sitting on this game for too long. What I envision doing with it is playing out a War of the Roses campaign using the old Avalon Hill board game Kingmaker as a campaign map. My dream was to make it a play by blog, but I don't have period specific figures or recognizable personalities painted up. I'm also not sure if it would be better to try and have participants play on their own and report back or try to live play via video conference. I'm not sure if that would even appeal to people.
Over on face book people were talking about ipad apps for putting muzzle flashes and explosions into their 40K battle report pictures. I don't own an ipad, but have done a fair bit of photo manipulating for my comic reports in both GIMP and Comic Life 3. Following is a list of resources from deviant art:
I felt like FrostBo in particular had a lot of good resources on his profile. Lots of useful Photoshop and GIMP brushes that I didn't list here.
The boy ran his first races of the season on Saturday. 3:10 800m and 6:29 1500m just about dead on his average for both races last season.
I've been even more quiet than usual on the bloggisphere as I'm feeling a tad nihilistic at the moment. I'm just trying to soldier on and not let the amount of work undone paralyze me. Right now I've lost my mojo for the painting challenge. I'll try to get it back but I think I'm done with trying to put out bulk units. It was never my forte and the thought of it right now is putting me off painting altogether.
Bye for now.
