Random Update: All's Quiet On The Miniature Front...

I must admit that things have definitely been very quiet around the Dispatch lately.  Not for lack of overall games but more a lack of miniature games.  Unfortunately I had to greatly reduce my terrain collection for our move which included getting rid of the game boards that I had made.  I had hoped to be able to replace them once we arrived but time and finances have largely been against us.

That said I'm hoping to make some headway back towards some of my miniature gaming and painting soon with some inexpensive alternatives.  Currently I'm looking for some fabric to spread out to use as my gaming surface but so far my search isn't turning up many good inexpensive options.  In the meantime I've got a few projects that I'm starting to put together, in particular some "new" miniatures that I've picked up including finally putting more of my Bones Kickstarter to use and some hand me downs from my older brother.  I am also hoping to get in some Malifaux at some point but right now scheduling is making it difficult.  Ah well, one hurdle at a time!  Until next time...

TV Review: Knights Of Sidonia

Okay, I just finished a binge session of the new anime series Knights of Sidonia on Netflix and I have to say it is definitely worth checking out.


Set on a massive colony ship traveling through deep space, the series follows Nagate Tanikaze as he goes from being a scavenger living in the underworld of Sidonia to one of the elite garde pilots in the military.  The story keeps a very good pace through out and really pulls you in to find out what will happen next.  The animation is top notch and the details are just out of this world.

The only downside to this series is that there are only twelve episodes currently available.  Thankfully a quick search on the web revealed that the second season has already been given the green light so we can expect more intense anime action to be headed our way thanks to Netflix.  Until next time...
