Barbarians 2nd Ed, Core Space Basing & a bit of Moderation

Today is a good day! I recieved my Barbarians 2nd Edition Kickstarter in the mail.


With it I also snagged the Mystics Expansion.

I played this game back in 2018 at Kefcon. This was the first edition & it can be seen here

I have also been busy with the basing for my Core Space figures. As always I mount my figures on washers. This is for when I use my magnetic sheeted travel boxes for going to the club, etc. It's worked quite well for me, though sometimes the washers can shift a bit while the glue dries.

The game comes with a 2'x2' mouse pad material mat. After a base of dark grey. I used a blister pack sponge to dab metallic silver, tinny tin & some rust pigment.

I then dug into my box of old decals from the many model kits I've built. using the numbers as markers & opted to use various coloured lines just for some interest. For each crew the figures will get a different coloured line to make it easier to identify their faction for when I get several trader crews battling it out.

I am starting with the crew of the Black Moriah. And aim to complete the core box set of figures by the time we can return to our club meetings.

As I look at it, I will likely revisit the sponging on the edges of the bases & washers too to complete them. 

 What do you think?

On a final note, I've had to turn the moderation of comments on as there has been a rash of those annoying spammers placing their comments throughout my blog. Please don't let that from stopping you posting releveant comments. I will get them cleared as I see them.

It's times like this it would be nice to be able to block or report these users. In fact I feel blogger shouldn't allow anonymous accounts, it would aid in stopping this abuse.

Thanks for visiting & hope to have more updates as I work through the core space figures.
