This Geek's Week...



Modeling/Hobby:
- Started painting my Plast Craft terrain.  Thus far, I've finished over 1/2 of the buildings and all of the ladders/walkways.  I'm down to just two large buildings and 3 walk sections...


Tabletop Games:
- Played one of the solo scenarios for Sails of Glory.  It never fails though, I just can't predict movements in games like these! (Still fun!)


Card/Board Games:
- Played a game of Boss Monster with my daughter...


Video Games:
- Played some Disney Infinity with my daughter...

- Played some more Halo 5.  *sigh*. I'm so bad at it though... Like, rage-inducing BAD at it. =(

- Played some Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon...

This Geek's Week...

Bringing Halo to the tabletop in 28mm...
 
** Things have still be slow on the gaming front as of late.  I kind of lost my dedicated game night, and random "pick up games" are non existent at the moment...


Hobby/Modeling:
- Worked some more on Plast Craft terrain.  I managed to get everything assembled, now I need to begin painting...

- Finished up both of the 2 infinity figures I picked up along with my Plast craft order.



Video Games:
- Played some more Halo 5, both Warzone and Arena.  I joined a Spartan Company for us old timers with families called: "Spartan Dads".  I did have a few epic moments, one was during an assault match where I singlehandedly wiped out the spire of its defenders, getting 6+ kills in a matter of seconds!  Another was during an arena match where I ended killing 3/4 of the entire team with a single grenade throw.  I think that may have been my best match to date...

- Played some Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon on the DS.

- Played some Disney Infinity with my daughter.
 
Until Next time...

Plast Craft Infinity Terrain Review...




My latest Plast Craft terrain order arrived from MiniatureMarket the other day, and after how successful the last Medieval Building went, I figured I would do another review on the infinity bourak terrain set.  I'm going to reference a lot from that earlier post, so if you have not managed to read, you find it helpful to go back and do so.

So, without further ado, let's get started!

This Geek's Week...


Hobby/Modeling:
- Picked up a set of woodland scenics trees.

- My Plast Craft Medieval Building arrived, and was quickly assembled and painted as you probably already saw.

- My follow up order of a bunch of Plast Craft infinity terrain arrived.  So far, I've assembled 2 of the 6 boxes...

- I picked up a few random infinity figures, and I have started to work on them.



Board/Card Games:
- Played a family game of Rampage.  (First tabletop game of 2016)



Video Games:
- Played a bunch of Halo 5.  Managed a 1st place win in Gold Ranked FFA.  I also think I'm really liking Warzone Assault as well.

- Played a bit of Disney Infinity with my daughter...

- Watched more of the Halo Championships.  I mostly follow the player known as" Ninja", and those were some intense games!
 
Until Next time,

Plast Craft Medieval House Unboxing/Assembly/Review...



Checking out the poll results (despite the small number of votes) it is clear that many of you think I should work on filling out my gaming table a bit more.  In light of those poll results, I decided to give Plast Craft games a look, and decided the safest thing was to order a single terrain piece, to check the quality and such BEFORE buying a whole table's worth of it. Seeing as I could use a medieval house to use with Saga, I decided to start there. 


A quick shout out.  I purchased this from MiniatureMarket.com, one of the online shops I sometimes frequent.  I live in KS, and their location is somewhere around St. Louis, MO. It may not exactly be a "local gaming store", but at about 5 hours away, it is pretty close to one as far as online retailers go!  The average cost of Plast Craft terrain is around $15 on MiniMarket.  I ordered it late on Thursday night, after hours, and ended up shipping the following day on Friday.  (I chose FedEx shipping). It was scheduled to arrive on their following Friday, and I was a bit bummed as I had no other hobby projects to work on.  To my surprise it actually showed up Tuesday afternoon, so 3 days early!  Below is my unboxing, or unenveloping, and overall review...
