All Quiet on the Eclectic Front?

February was one of those 'life stuff' months, and has been incredibly busy. Consequently, I have not felt up to painting, which puts me behind for the year already, but that is not to say I didn't get some motivation for other 'hobby stuff'. (And hopefully the painting will kick back in soon!).

I decided to dust off a few ideas which have been percolating through my brain for a number of years, and have made significant progress on a set of 'simple supers' rules I am provisionally calling Supers Unlimited. The characters are ideas that have been with me for a long time, while the rules engine is an amalgam of a number of ideas I have been working through in drafts for other games. There will be simple character creation but overall the rules will be light on 'crunch'.

One of the characters I am working into the background for the game has already appeared in the form of a sculpt I had commissioned a few years ago, so this has been a slow-burn to say the least!

I am not wholly sure what I will do with Supers Unlimited yet, but I hope to complete the first (very rough) draft quite soon - watch this space!

  1. Your not the only one. I don't think I have finished anything at all in February really. Based a few, cleaned up many more and basecoated one is about the sum of a months dabbling.

  2. Terrible month for me too. Hardly put a paintbrush to a model... and the start of March doesn't look much better either. Keep going though my friend, as your painting is always inspirational when you do post :-)

    You know I've had a similar month, although it has included a certain sculpt for Supers Unlimited...amongst other things...

    1. I am a slacker, it is true! :)

      Always good to see more Doc Cosmos painted up. :)

  4. Seems like many people got the same blues, as february hasn't been a very productive month on the hobby front for me either.

    Now you got me curious about your Supers Unlimited project and I hope to see some more updates about it in the near future.

    1. Seems I am not the only one experiencing a slump - hope your own hobbying picks up soon. :)

      As for Supers Unlimited, I'll be setting up a Wargames Vault store front, but in the meantime I have started a blog for Kitbash Games: http://kitbashgames.blogspot.co.uk/

  5. I have had numerous ideas buzzing around my head for years too and I really need to implement some of them soon or it will all just be forgotten eventually. :)
