Fortnight in Fantasy

We have had loads on recently, 2 tournaments since the party on episode 100.  Team Bad Dice went to the Serbian Sauerkraut Team Event and also the Merseyside Meltdown tournament.

Gaming – Other than tournaments, I have played vs the new Daemons with my Chaos Dwarfs.

Painting РI have now finished 23 Infernal Guard, Magma Cannon, Iron Daemon and 3 Bull Centaurs. I have in progress a Hellcannon and the Forgeworld Character set.  Gareth has been over to see Mikey and the guys at Golem to get a painting lesson and Mark has made more progress on his orcs.

Other – I’ve not watched any films but have done a ton of reading! Book 2 and 3 of the Hunger Games. The Name of the Wind and the Wise Mans Fear by Patrick Rothfuss and I’m now on the latest in the Dresden series from Jim Butcher, I picked them all up from Audible
