Why so quiet? ...part 3
This week I've decided to take a little break from the 'video game graphics' that I'm working on (which, as I've said before, is the main reason things are so quiet at the moment), as the last level took me an absolute age to complete, and I didn't want to keep pushing forward and risk becoming burned out.
So a little break (as least on that front) is in order - however, I've still got several maps that I need to catch up on for Purple Duck Games (for the purple mountain mega-dungeon) - so I guess any chance of working on the next Age of Shadow article/supplement will have to wait a while longer ...as will any miniatures that I'd like to get painted up (or any other projects that I have in mind).
But while I'm on the subject of miniatures, I thought I'd mention that I picked up a nice little skirmish game called 'A Song of Blades and Heroes' not long ago, and I have to say that it looks like a nice little game. I've even got my first (Age of Shadow themed) warband assembled and ready to be painted (as you can use pretty much any fantasy model in the game, and there is even an online warband/creature builder if you want to customise things yourself). However, as I mentioned above, I have no idea when I'll actually get time to sit down and throw some paint at these guys - but when I do I'll post some photographs (assuming they turn out OK), and the relevant stats to go along with them.
But now, I really must get on with the next level of The Purple Mountain ...I guess it's a good thing that I enjoy drawing maps :)
