Shipping and Receiving
Today has been a fun day of receiving orders and placing new ones.
The two things that arrived were both from the same franchise funnily enough, the Avatar poster I ordered from Mondo arrived and the Legend of Korra board game arrived from Kickstarter. I’m really looking forward to not only playing that but painting up all the miniatures, because they’re based on an animated show I’m going to try to do them in quite a flat, almost cell-shaded style, it’ll be different from anything I’ve done before but hopefully they’ll look great.
I haven’t taken a picture of the poster yet as it was obviously rolled into its tube and I don’t want to risk damaging it trying to hold it down. One of the things I ordered today though was a nice big frame for it, had to be custom made and cost as much as the art itself, but it’ll be worth it.
The other order I placed was for a few bits for the upcoming Star Wars Legion game. I’ve been really tempted by it but didn’t know if I was going to buy in as I wouldn’t have anyone to play it with. After chatting to a couple of friends, Wez in particular, they seem pretty into it and are buying a core set too. I’m hoping Sara or someone will do the same for me for my birthday so I just preordered a couple of the expansions today so I can get a jump on the minis.
Urgh, I’m looking outside and while there are only small schmekles of snow, I can tell already it is fucking freezing out. We’re off out into town tonight for Emma’s thirtieth, it should be a lot of fun, but it’s going to be cooooooold! It is supposed to be a video game themed costume party. I am not one for dressing up at all but my hair is long at the moment and I’ve dug out my Plumtree tee shirt so I’m just going to go as Scott Pilgrim, from the comics, not Michael Cera. Sara’s going to be cold though, she’s planning on going as Tifa from FF7, but thats not much more than short shorts and a vest top. Maybe she’ll call an audible and wear the Jedi robes she made a couple of years ago for Secret Cinema. I’ll post some pictures tomorrow either way.
