Holiday Madness (A brief update)

I wanted to apologize to regular readers for the lack of updates as of late. Between the holidays, work and a new baby on the way I haven't had as much time to devote to my hobby as I'd like.

I'm still plugging away at the new Malifaux board and I hope to have an update within the next few weeks to show the progress. After experimenting with a few different ways to add buildings to the board I've settled on a solid solution. Each structure with be a solid block of foam which will form the facade of each building. I'll run balconies along the front of each to add additional elements that are accessible in game. I went back and forth with a few ideas and decided against doing interiors. While they are ultimately cool I feel like interiors will only serve to further complicate an already complex board. 

I also have a bunch of models in my painting que that need assembly and painting which I hope to get to as soon as things calm down a bit.

Last week I did have a chance to see the Muppets movie and I can't recommend it highly enough. It's a fun movie that breathes new life into a struggling franchise. The bit with the chickens covering Cee-lo's "f" you is enough to cover the price of admission.
