The Weekly Update for Sunday, June 1st, 2014

I love Qol. I really, really do.

It has been a very busy week, and I am happy to have finally gotten a little time to myself. I'm on the workbench, this morning, getting yet more of Howard Fielding's ( he of The Tekumel Project) Qol ready for the next game session in two weeks.

You never have enough Qol, I think; they are so satisfying to have on the table, as they are so businesslike and serious. Much better, I think then your usual hordes of undead like Mru'r or Shedra, although I do have quite a few of both handy.

This new batch will look a little different then the first two waves I have; I'm doing some 'stock' figures this time, as well as some little conversions. I have great hopes for these; I really enjoy painting them!!!


I am still dithering over what to make the actual Underworld out of for the next game session. I'd prefer not to try to do the traditional 'colored masking tape on table top' kind of thing that used to be fashionable in my youth; I'm thinking about slicing up the stocks of 'cobblestone' foam that I have into walls, and then sticking these onto a batch of 'blank' terrain tiles that I had cut to make the 'wet terrain' tile set. Since I have a lot of MDF panels in stock, and it's summer, I can always cut new tiles and make the swamps out of those - this would free up the old tiles, and I could do an article for the blog about how I make things...
