The unimaginatively titled update
I’ve had some fun roleplaying weekends and even introduced Kimber, Rackham and Becca to the joys of dice rolling geekyness by creating Cybershonendam 00 a scifi bastard offshoot of D20 for anyone who gets excited by Gundam and hasn’t had enough of Deus Ex yet. Rackham LOVES flirting with the DM……
July was for playing with toy soldiers and we will have some more of that now October is upon us, I’m going to finish painting my current crop of Marines this week so a new Lunchtime project beckons. Gribbly Alien time probably.
August was all about Cosplaying. Made Shockwave and Jayne Cobb for Aya, was good. Liked the costumes, Put on a little performance with Jake and found a bar on campus that sold Old Speckled Hen.
Want to kill the material over foam technique though, If I ever start talking about it again feel free to throw me in the Thames.
September is when EuroCosplay gets real, so I’ve been hiding in front of my PS3, playing Deus Ex (AKA day of sex) and fraging Orks in the name of the Emperor in order to motivate myself to tackle the mountain of emails and admin tasks.
Continued to watch quite a lot of films:
Green lantern – not just pants but green pants!
Captain America – fun but felt shiny scifi and not at all in keeping with it’s era
Transformers 3 – I found things to like in 1 & 2, but this one is irredeemable as anything but a mindless pro-american action flick.
Xmen FC – Pretty good, shame some of the characters where shoe horned in because they had the right powers.
Super 8 – Ok, spoiled by Hollywood syndrome a bit. did they know about zombies back then?
Harry Potter – I liked, much better than the boring previous one. Ends badly though as the ageing effects at the end jar your sense of disbelief..
