Pondering Role-play games

Having had a very positive discussion regarding playing an RPG (hopefully the FFG Zombie End of The World game!) I thought I post up a quick message to say that anyone who was interested in RPGs should a have a look at Pathfinder: Adventure card game. I played a few games of it on Monday and really enjoyed the balance between a role-play game where you can level up and develop your own take on a character whilst having a structure to your games without the need for a opponent player to beat. Whilst it is not as cheap as a standard role-play game might seem if you are just buying books the cards and art work help people like me, who need a little more than just imagination, to really jump into the world and start swinging those frost-giant swords!
This is the character I chose, along with the Juggernaught class! I liked the game so much I bought my own set of  silver and green polyhedral dice to play with!

Pondering Skirmish Games

Hola fellow E.L.Fers,

Following the recent second coming of the ELF Necromunda day I've spent some time pondering what seems to be the current hotness in tabletop gaming, skirmish games.

Age of Sigma - Excited

Every time one of my YouTube subscriptions has an AOS video I cant wait to watch it. I have been chatting to Dave and reading your Blogs and I am really intrigued to try it out. My only concern was where to start? With what I agree with as an imbalance of points I was thinking of what would Dave suggest as he would probably be the one I play it with most; what would he think of to balance the points? However after watching this (AOS talk starts from about the 1hr mark) I realise that I shouldn't be looking at any of the old Warhammer stuff to play unless I already own it.
Talk is, the factions are getting a review and this would also sort out some trademark issues and bring in new models and factions into play. This could sort the points balance/lack of points out.
But, lack of points doesn't seem to be the only issue. Miniwargaming showed this intro game and the original issues of, 'it becomes a huge squash and bash-fest' arise.
I am really undecided. I definitely want to play some games and I know of a few people getting rid of some cheap models or I can borrow some.
I REALLY like the Sigmar models, but am I behaving like a 12 year old boy that wants to collect Space Marines for their first army because they look cool and am I not using my imagination enough?

Summer holidays soon so will get some games in and I might be tempted to buy the started set.

Star realms

Just wondering if anyone else has star realms on their iPhone/pad/pc/Mac/other and want to play an online game?

Age of Sigmar: The Props & the Slops

So, having been on a massive downer about the rules as they were drip fed to us via leaks, a strange thing happened when the warscrolls got released Friday night/Saturday morning...
