I must own that I'm rather taken with this new computer game, and it has robbed me of much precious painting-time. I'm not usually into that kind of thing (Computerized Fantasy Role-playing? Surely the lowest rung of nerdy-ness), but then again you can't get much more nerdy than Miniature Wargaming, now, can you?

Anyways, it's just so pretty to look at. That is deeply shallow of me, but I'm just glad that my aging graphics card (though it damn-well cost enough when I bought it) can still cope with something so picturesque. So here's a few screenshots:

My character goes for her daily morning swim.

Oh no! She's been spotted by those filthy swine, the Paparazzi (she's the Arch-Mage, you know: They follow her everywhere).

A girl and her Unicorn. Ahh, how sweet. He's kind of tame, but does tend to wander off if you don't keep him penned in.

A little midnight skinny-dipping with the Unicorn. Scandalous! What if the Mage's Guild find out?

Sickly is rather fond of this game, too, and spends all his spare hours at Guido's house playing on it. I don't think he calls round for any other reason. He has an orc, a most uncouth fellow. Likes bashing things and hitting people. He's in the Fighter's Guild, I understand. He even has a theme song:

Dan-de-duh-duh, Fighter's Guild!

Duh-duh-deh-di-deh, Fi-i-ighter's Guild!

(You sing it to the theme from The A-Team)

If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, maybe you can hire The Fighter's Guild.

Heavens! What is the youth of today coming to, eh?
