Remote video conferencing? Is that what the cools kids are calling Skype these days?

I have no idea :lol:

I was thinking of those virtual meeting rooms, where there's a screen on one wall that looks like it's part of the same room and that you're all sat together.

I've a feeling it was on Tomorrow's World around 2003 or something like that and is now terribly old-hat :lol:

I haven't played Gloomhaven, but it does look very interesting. My games collection is definitely at breaking point now though so anything new I want to buy has to come at the expense of something else going. There's only so much shelving I can physically fit in my flat. :P

Nice one, ta! :)

I'm certainly keeping an eye on it. It looks like you can play a procedurally-generated campaign at the moment, but the proper campaign will be with the full release next year.

I may have pre-ordered Warcry (GW's new skirmishy game).
The models look awesome, it's a bit Kill-team/a bit Necromunda (apparently) in AoS.

Speaking of Kill Team, I've nearly finished painting my team, just some arms for the magnetised warriors, a few gaunts and a few gant

If anyone's interested, I've started doing a play-test/run-through of Advanced Hero Quest: Prince of Persia Edition here.

Nice, although naturally I'm devastated you're seeing another forum behind our backs. :cry:

Well, I didn't want to post masses of images in this thread. I suppose I could start a blog thread about it?

The only board game I own now is Talisman 3rd Edition, which happens to be my favourite board game of all time (for now ¬_¬)
... I sold this on eBay a couple of months ago. ¬_¬


At the moment, I'm not really interested in "packaged product" board games, but more into experimenting/tinkering with a variety of rules and miniatures.

As well as play-testing AHQ: POP, I'm currently painting miniatures for an H.P. Lovecraft-themed skirmish game called Strange Aeons. I'm also messing around with the rules for Age of Sigmar, using them to play gothic-horror-themed skirmishes in the early 17th Century, which is a little weird, I realise, but strangely compelling.
