Project: Board Games... The beginning.

My apologies for no hobby post last week, I've had some problems with my PC that I think are worked out now.

There are a few projects old and new that I want to work on. One project that I really want to do is to paint up the playing pieces and miniatures for several board games I've owned for a while and a few I picked up recently.

I've already made a start on a couple of them, but I'm going to put them aside for now and limit myself to one game at a time until it is complete. I'm fighting my hobby butterfly impulses,

I think that board games look a lot nicer on the tabletop when the playing pieces are even just given a quick paint-job like this boxed game I painted a while back:

Nothing earth-shattering, just quick block colours and a wash on those. They've performed double duty as creatures for our RPG's in the past too. They were pretty crude soft bright plastic figures, but improved a lot with some paint on.

This is kind of a back burner project. I'll be working on my board game pieces in the background and beside other hobby projects, you'll see updates as and when I work upon them.

I play an awful lot of different board games with my friends alongside our wargaming and roleplaying. I was thinking maybe I should do some posts on the different board games I play, what's in the box? how does it play? A bit like a light review I suppose... It's an idea anyway, I may follow through with it or not as and when the whim takes me..

Take care and I'll be back with more hobby updates pretty soon.
