So, we reset and chose an easier one which we got through with everyone intact. I can heartily recommend Zombicide for mindless fun at the end of a game session, or as a session in itself seeing as some of the scenarios are intended to last 3 hours!
I have been painting like a demon for a few weeks now. Under the brush recently have been WW2 Russians for PBI, more bits for Vikings - mainly captured civilians, AWI Continentals and British, ACW Rebs and Union. I really enjoying painting again and intend to get some more Warmachine done soon.
I have a game of 'Battles in the Age of War' - Sengoku era Japan, planned for Friday night. I'll most likely umpire for 3 or 4 others. I'll let you know how I get on.
