Slow start to the new year
Arabiansquire potentially has an interesting year. He's just had a birthday which means he can join the local gaming club as an associate member in his own right, technically meaning I don't have to supervise him. In theory he can find a couple of friends to play with if a common game can be agreed upon (and I can play against adult opposition). This may require a bit of education for the other club members, as they are all stuck with Games Workshop armies that they spend the whole session setting up, palying 2 turns then running out of time or interest. I'm sure they'll see the light when we find a game that can use they're figures AND play an entire game... There's no rush for this though, it's just nice that he can become a member of a club that he's been attanding on and off for over 2 years for now.
As for me? Well having signed up for a Warmachine League at the local store in Livingston, I've started painting up a few new figures to hopefully field - a DeathJack that's been sitting part painted of months and a new unit of 5 Mechanithralls to act as early round bullet magnets. The league officially starts this Saturday, so I'll need a couple of practice games first to remind myself of what everything does!
