I did, in fact, paint my remaining wall section and I built those two side towers. Heck, I even painted them so now I have a really awesome looking city wall thing. I'm thinking that maybe I should make some kind of gate house since a wall is useless unless you have a way to enter through it. That and I'm thinking of making a damaged, partially collapsed wall section because it might look interesting.
My flock making project has slowed a bit. I have two batches, one green and one white, to finish before I should make anymore. I wish I knew where to find an old school flour sifter. You remember? The ones with the big can and the trigger/lever that would sift a bunch of flour at a time? That would be awesome for this.
The 40K campaign I'm playing in is winding to a halt. One of the players has accomplished the big objective and the only way to stop him from winning is to make the guy right on his heels win instead. Unfortunately, I lost because instead of going after the main objectives more aggressively, I tended to get into more fights. Once it got to a certain point, I was so far behind score wise that it was all but impossible to catch up again. Oh, well. I will consider that an object lesson for the future. We're planning on having an Apocalypse game (one of the really big games) to put the cap on the campaign and then we're going to switch to 5th Ed.
On another note, I played my first 5th Ed game Saturday. It wasn't bad for a teaching game. I foresee certain problems that will arise in 5th Ed. Horde armies are going to be king, I think. There are going to be fewer wins and more draws. The new line of sight rules, while alright for beer and pretzels play, are going to be a problem. And a lot of people are going to have to make some new terrain because of those rules. In fact, I'm about to make a hill making tutorial for the play group site for people who might be reading and new into things. I'll try to do that over the next few days.
Lastly, my goal for this week is to flock a bunch of minis, paint one other thing (building, mini, whatever) and start work on that gate for my big ass wall. And that's all I think I'm going to say about that.
