Extra Day

We don’t get to post on the 29th February very often.

I have nothing to say today.

Steam Wars Logo

I need a logo for my Steam Wars game and I guess it needs to be one I can create online at one of the freebie logo creation sites in various sizes.
cooltext-ringbearer
I like the one above, Ringbearer font, it is nice and simple.

cooltext-tropicana
The above is Tropicana font, it is quite evocative of the steampunk genre.

coollogo-vanilla
The above is Vanilla Whale, which I do like due to the brassiness of the logo but the diagonals are not very smooth.

I’m still looking around a few sites for what I want, I guess I am really after something that has rivets!

Tower Stairs

battlemasterstowers2As I was filling all the gaps and adding some balsa planks, I decided that the stairs to the front door were too narrow for a figure to access. Also, it would not be possible to put a figure by the door so I thought I should do something about that and a hacksaw would appear to have solved the problem.

It would have been easier before I glued all the sections together but never mind.

It took a few bits of plastic to stretch out the entrance…

…and then a load of match sticks and balsa to cover up the handiwork.

I think this one is ready for undercoating.

AvP Delivers

Having paid for Aliens Vs Predator “The Hunt Begins” by Prodos back in November 2013, with it due in May 2014, it finally delivered today. February 2016. Excellent. That was a derisive, contemptuous, sarcastic, bitter, cynical and sardonic “excellent” by the way.

It has been so long and I have been so hacked off by Prodos that I have lost interest, at least for the moment.

I also think it is pretty unlikely that I will ever go in for another Kickstarter of this type again, especially as I can pick up the game cheaper now than the price I shelled out for it 27 months ago.
