Hey all – so these past two weeks have been dry for both hobby and gaming – houseguest and correcting exams continue to hamper any chance to get something done! I’ve gotten some way into one of the Mangler Squig models I’m prepping for the table, and am ramping up to do somethign with a wyvern. I have also ordered for myself something of another new departure – Malifaux figures and the rulebook. I was informed about this game through a friend and a few awesome podcasts that I listen to while painting. It seems like an interesting concept, and I liked the cut of the miniatures too Nobody stocks it here – so went through Maelstrom Games to get my starter sets and book. The idea is to set up something as a break from the Orcs and Goblins without really starting a new Warhammer army entirely. With their recent price hike and generally expensive line, I don’t think I have it in me to save towards a new line just yet, and a Skirmish game like Malifaux or maybe Infinity might be the way to go for now.
This doesn’t mean that I will abandon the hobby so soon after getting bit by the bug in the first place (truth told, can’t wait to field the squigs!) – but I think what I’m trying to do is maintain my interest through diversity in the miniatures and even the wargaming system itself. On the face of it, I think it is a good idea, even if I might have to introduce some friends to Malifaux entirely!
