|I didn't go as far overboard as I could have.|
Bitterness aside, the first thing to do with miniatures such as these is to paint them. Clan Iga looked to be the coolest to me, what with their red skin and purple outfits, so they were to be first. Much the same as with Super Dungeon Explore, I started with white primer.
In unrelated news, I tried a game of Age of Sigmar using the "Age of Balance" comp system. It's basically a rough & ready deal, focusing not so much on "perfect" values (they make a rather convincing argument that no such thing exists) but on "fair" games. In other words, yes the system isn't flawless, and yes it's open to abuse, but what system isn't?
I have a few thoughts about the game. as with all battle reports I have read, the game pretty much devolved into a big scrum in the center of the battlefield. This may well have been due to the fact that the game was Daemons vs. Daemons, a pair of armies not really known for their shooting. Perhaps plunking Skaven down across the board will change things? One thing's for sure, much like Lord of the Rings, the game needs scenarios to eliminate repetitive gameplay.
I think I'll see if the Age of Balance comp system and the PPC scenarios mesh. A little tweaking may be needed, but with luck not too much.
I'll be playing X-Wing for a couple weeks while prepping for a store championship, so don't expect too much hobby progress soon. That having been said, I'm painting up objectives for AoS PPC scenarios today, so maybe I'll have something to show off soon after all!
