It's been coursework season at work and if anybody has ever worked in education, you'll know that trying to get teenagers to hand work in by a deadline is fruitless and frustrating task. Still to cheer me up I'm off on a plane tonight to meet up with a bunch of strange men I met on the internet. That's right, i'm deliberately discarding the internet safety rules we teach our kids and going to a foreign country on the promise of some games of toy soldiers. It's the Wipster weekend. Knavecon here we come! All the contributors to the Scale Creep blog (bar the poor old Ozzy Captain Crooks who will be making virtual appearances like Holly froom Red Dwarf) plus various other O'Hammerers are heading to deepest darkest Ireland in order to play some games, drink some alcohol and talk a lot of shit.
The afternoons gaming will be made up of multiple games of Frostgrave for which we've all been slaving away on warbands for donkey's. You'll have seen mine before and you'll be able to see other folks ones on Scale Creep.
But I also decided that my wizard was a summoner and that meant having to paint some demons incase he and his apprentice actually managed to get a spell or two off. I also got some treasure markers done. I still haven't got a game in so I fully expect to have my wand handed to me.
|Excuse the shitty photography, I was in a hurry!|
and if the plot reminds you of any particular film then these guys might be popping up and opportune moments to make things even more tricky for our dozen or so heroes.
|My feet are cold. BASE ME!!|
So that's the weekend. Expect updates on FB throughout the weekend. I'll make sure we post lots of pretty pictures! Cheers!
