Blog Title Change, New Direction

Welcome back to What To Play... wait, what?!?

Well, that's the title I decided on.  After a lot of soul searching and advice from readers I have decided a more inclusive name for the blog was the best course of action.  I'm still planning on making scratch builds for 40k, but my interests have grown far beyond the scope of one game.  Not just miniature games, mind you, but also board and card games as well.

So, don't be surprised if I include information about games like Glory to Rome, Eminent Domain, A Study In Emerald, X-Wing, and Android: Netrunner.  Speaking of X-Wing...

I've been spending some time repainting the X-Wing fighters I picked up.  My collection of ships is slowly growing, however.  On the Rebel side I have 2 X-Wings, an A-Wing, a Y-Wing, and a B-Wing.  For the Imperial side I have a Firespray, 3 Tie Fighters, a Tie Advanced, a Tie Bomber, and a Tie Interceptor.

Of course, having all those ships means I need a transport for them.  Luckily, Plano makes a fantastic container which seems as though it was accidentally built for this purpose.

Nice how everything just fits in there, isn't it?

Well, that's it for today.  Now that I'm covering so much more in the hobby realm, hopefully I can maintain more updates.  Till next time, happy gaming!


  1. I have to say, I'm really glad you decided to continue blogging. I've enjoyed watching your various projects since I started following this blog over the last year or so, and since I also recently got into x-wing, I like the new direction ;)

    If you're open to suggestions, one post I'd love to see is a rundown of the various tools and supplies you use for your conversions/scratchbuilds. What kinds of putties, resins, mold-making supplies, sculpting tools, and the like, plus a few paragraphs about what each is good for, where to get them (particularly since you seem to be based in the US), any gotchas or tips for working with each material, and so forth.

    Thanks again for blogging!

    1. Me too, Michael! I've had fun building various 40k projects over the years, and no matter how I feel about that particular game I have no desire to abandon the projects which have led me here.

      That's a great idea, going over all my tools/supplies is something I keep planning, but always seems to get pushed off. I'll be sure to do a proper post on it in the future.
