Gaming update - February/March

Finding the time to write to my blog has been tricky recently as I've been working long hours and having to fit in various things domestically as well.

This has meant that I've had little time to do much miniatures work, but I have been able to keep up with my play by post RPG where I'm playing in a number of D&D games - one in a homebrew world of the DM's devising, one in the Wilderlands of High Fantasy and the other in the Dark Sun setting. The other pbp games that I'm playing in are 1920s Call of Cthulhu set in Edinburgh and a RuneQuest game that is currently on hiatus. I'm also looking at joining in a couple more RQ games online.

On the miniatures front I've got a couple of new projects in my mind using figures from Alternative Armies. The first is to actually finish off the Sidhe (Irish Elves) that I have had knocking around for many years and get some Formorians as opposition using the Erin rules. The other is to give Flintloque a try and I've picked up some Todoroni miniatures and the free Flitloque light rules towards that end. My WWII figures will be getting progressed soon as they are close to me having a couple of squads for the US and Germans allowing a game to get played.
