So 2009 is here at last. I hope you all have a happy and healthy new year! In the following I want to give a brief outlook of some of the things you can expect to find on Cianty's Tabletop Wargames Blog in 2009.
Firstly, the anticipated Border Town Burning supplement for Mordheim is coming very soon (as in "tomorrow" rather than "next month"; just not tomorrow). We were going to release it before last christmas and I know many people were looking forward to it. Unfortunately a very annoying computer virus got in the way. Anyways, make sure to check back at the BTB website soon for the final release of the supplement. This also means that the worldwide BTB campaign Portents of Doom will be delayed a little. I can't say by how much right now as it will depend on how much free time I have to prepare and set things up. As always, I encourage you to check out Tom's Boring Mordheim Forum for all things Mordheim - including BTB and PoD, of course.
Secondly, I am very happy and proud to announce that Tom List of Boring Mordheim fame will be guest posting here. He has recently painted an amazing pirate crew for the Legends of the High Seas game for me and he was so kind as to agree to explain his techniques and colour choices for us. This means that you can expect some awesome pirate eye candy on the blog soon.
The big project for me this year will be the "Gierburg" gaming table. Gierburg is a somewhat typical medieval city full of half-timbered houses. I will be using the board for Mordheim and LotHS as well as playing with a new rules set designed specifically for Gierburg. More infos on that will be posted around mid year, but the first building - the Blue Wolf Inn - is well under way and photos of that are due rather soon. With the next update of the website you will find "Gierburg" as a separate menu item next to "Mordheim" and "Pirates" above.
That's it for now. There are a few more things in the pipeline that I don't want to give away now. I, again, wish you all the best for 2009 (and beyond). Till next time!
