Get back on that wagon
First thing is first. I finished Mass Effect yesterday. Good game, odd ending though. I’m not too sure what to think about the last boss. The game is odd in that it doesn’t seem to add to the Mass Effect universe in any real way. None of the questions posed in the first game are resolved, and this only adds a couple more. In fact, the storyline seems more like a piece of episodic content, than an entire game. Not that I didn’t like it, but the overall feel of the story wasn’t quite as epic and engaging as the first one.
With that burden lifted from my shoulders, I got back into Warhammer today. It was a public holiday today, and I was supposed to split my time between home maintenance and Warhamering. Luck for me though, it bucketed down with rain for the entire day, allowing me to squirrel myself away in the games room and get back into the swing of things.
My first task was working on painting my clanrats some more. I got a layer of Mithril Silver onto them, along with an Elf Flesh layer onto 20 or so models. So the army slowly inches towards some form of completion.
I also finally got to sit down and start to flesh out the new organisational structure of Skavenblight Gazette. Myself and the other editor have been talking about taking on a third editor, and this discussion has prompted an overhaul on how we run things entirely. At the moment the direction of the webzine, and the types of articles we are looking for, mainly lives inside both our heads. I have been working on a comprehensive article guide, what regular feature articles we run and how to write for them.
Along with this I am also putting together an organisational structure for how we handle our content, both submitted and internally generated. The plan is to put a structure in place that will allow us to consistently put out a good amount of quality content on a regular schedule. That is the plan, anyway.
And for something a little different, the new Killa Kans for the Orks have me excited. I’m not a 40k fan at all, but this new kit shows a lot of promise. I can see Rat Ogre Bonebreaker written all over this box.
