Lost Pages Loot

Woohoo! Finally got my hands on a Chthonic Codex boxset, Wonder & Wickedness and Marvels & Malisons from the Lost Pages stand at Conpulsion earlier today. Really looking forward to diving in to these little beauties!

While I was in Edinburgh I stopped by the Black Lion gameshop (well it’d be rude not to) and picked up my first d30 especially to use with Yoon-Suin. There’s 1 table in the book that uses a d30, so it’s bound to get used once or twice. That’s more times than most of the other dice in my collection…

Wargames Hobby Craft Symposium

Went along today’s Symposium with a detachment from the East Neuk Irregulars. What a great event! Got to pick up tips on painting, conversions and sculpting directly from the dab hands. The hobby needs more of this kind of thing! If you’re interested in upping your game hobby-craft-wise, then you owe it to yourself to pop along tomorrow for day#2. Well done to David Imrie and all the team for putting this together. Many thanks!

On Fairy-Stories

“On Fairy-Stories” is an essay by J. R. R. Tolkien which discusses the fairy-story as a literary form. It was initially written (and entitled simply “Fairy Stories”) for presentation by Tolkien as the Andrew Lang lecture at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, on 8 March 1939.

Tis a bit weird that I somehow happened to be reading about this 80 years to the day that it happened, and only a stone’s throw away.
