Well, September has come and gone without much activity for me to report. Most of the month was lost to either preparing for a big life event in October or playing way to much Overwatch on the Xbox.
Part of preparing for October had me make a fast burn overnight trip to Atlanta. I got to stop by Giga-bites Cafe in Marietta and was truly impressed. It had been a long time since I had been to a game store that decent, sadly. Their stock list contained some real surprises too. Highly recommend it if you happen to visit the Marietta area. I stayed over some old friends and managed to fit in a game Lords of Waterdeep (I love that game) and a game of Lagoon: Land of Druids (meh).
I also got in a game of my buddy Mike's homebrew ruleset for mass combat: Mini-Mayhem. Mike saved me the effort of a "battle report", so you can find that here. A very interesting ruleset that captures a lot of flavor of mass combat.
There were also some experiments with creating mud bases for Masons team. It's been a mixed success. I definitely identified a formulation for the "core" of it but I'm having a lot of trouble beyond that. But I may have a fundamental problem/error in how I'm using weathering powders. I'll need to do some research and more experimenting.
Oh, I also stumbled across and stopped by the Huntsville Plastic Modelers Society for their 40th annual model show. I was very surprised by the turn out and saw some pretty nice models entered. I will try to get the pictures up in a post soon. More information regarding the Huntsville Plastic Modelers Society can be found here.
And that was pretty much it. There were some purchases that I wont bore anyone with but it does include one I am very excited about. I have to figure out where it sits in the backlog though. And before I get to the backlog, I have to stop playing so much Overwatch and finish my Masons team for Guild Ball.
Lastly, if you have any kind of interest in Mechs these are haunting me: Terra Promessa. I've resisted the urge for a couple of weeks now but I still haven't found the strength to close that tab on my browser. LOL
