Once again, I’m late to the board game party with Wingspan! Launched in 2019 to massive critical acclaim, Wingspan is a set-collection and engine-building board game for 1-5 players. Games can range from a half hour to two hours depending on the players’ familiarity with the game and how much time they spend agonizing over […]

Lots of painting projects going on, but these three are finished. Iyanden Aeldari Spiritseer and Heavy Weapons Platform (magnetized, and the Guardians are on the way next), and Nídhöggr from Blood Rage, the serpent who gnaws at the roots of the World Tree.
The CMON Blood Rage painting continues with monsters, specifically the Mountain Giantess. My new project is a Games Workshop Warhammer 40K army, specifically an Iyanden Craftworlds force. Here’s the first model, a Wave Serpent. The piping was murder, but I’m pretty happy with it overall, especially the object lighting on the pilot.
If you like Surrealism, parties, and drama, you’re going to like Surrealist Dinner Party. Honestly, though, if you have no interest in surrealists, you might want to give this one a pass.

The Stag Clan is here! These were tricky, as the sort of butter yellow color of the faction doesn’t lend itself to a lot of clothing options, but I rolled it in where I could. Eyes are an ongoing struggle, but they look better at tabletop distance at least.
The Wolf Clan for CMON‘s Blood Rage was a bit of a challenge – how to incorporate the player color (red) into an animal decidedly devoid of it? I decided to take advantage of the wrap-like garments, helmet plumes, and shields to bring in the red color while using more natural colors for the rest […]
The Raven Clan is ready for Ragnarok! This clan has blue tokens, which seemed inconsistent with ravens (black), so I went with a combination color scheme, with the black feathered cloaks enhanced with some interference green.
I finally got the basing sand for the Serpent Clan from CMON’s Blood Rage. I chose the yellow color scheme to match the clan token, but wanted the green for the shield for the snake theme.
Arisia is Happy Monster’s home convention, and an event Joy and I look forward to attending every year. I generally run 2-3 games of Savage Worlds, using mostly Happy Monster settings but occasionally throwing in some Pinnacle settings as well. Last year was the first year that other Savage Worlds GMs ran games as well, […]
