Worriers of Ashra

Posted October 28th, 2015 at 11:51 AM by Sylvano the Wasabus
Scape has all the things I love- miniatures, terrain, customability. Sometimes I find myself thinking about the characters of the figures. Scape has sharply defined them in most cases, which is nice. But I like to expand on things....

I know if you get scooped to Valhalla you kind of live forever. If you die in battle you kind of come back again, or something like that. Or maybe i think of it that way because we use the figures over and over again.

But what if they got old? What if Valhalla didnít keep them young, or make them die? I was going to say ďI must be bored because Iím thinking of Scape characters getting oldĒ but Iím really not bored and this is making me smile. And what could be more important than that?

The warriors of Ashra are a cool unit. Itís pretty hard to hurt them in melee. You canít even insult them in melee. But what if they got old? I can imagine them sitting in rocking chairs, but theyíre not fondly remembering...

X Winging

Posted October 22nd, 2015 at 01:52 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
Scape has its seasons, especially as my family grows older. Now my children spend their spare time looking for jobs or taking extra classes rather than playing with miniature figures. Iím still addicted to minis but we donít play every day like we used to. Can you believe that we played five or six days a week for five or six years?

So we played a bit of Scape and now not so much. Somehow an X wing game ended up in the living room. Oh, that makes it sound shop-lifted- it wasnít.

One of the compromises weíve made as time has passed is that now we play games while we eat supper. Itís nice to have a sit down in chairs family meal but with not enough time to play games we combined the two- itís not very civilized, Iíll admit. So we have good food and we sit on the living room floor and play whatever we want. Multitasking!

We played the simple game of X wing as the rules suggested before we played the real version. (reminded me of something...)...

Scape Hunting: Magic Arena of the Planeswalkers

Posted October 10th, 2015 at 04:01 PM by Sylvano the Wasabus
We were so excited to read about AofP. I was going to say we havenít been that excited about Scape stuff in years.... but of course there hasnít been any Scape stuff in years. Fanscape is great, but for us the game is really about new minis and terrain. And wound markers. And dice.

So the prospect of getting new Scape stuff was really exciting. It was a little reminder of how things used to be.

Canada is a great place to live but we donít get the variety of games or new releases so quickly. I live about 15 minutes from the US border so I really donít understand how things canít make it across that imaginary line. I know things get tied up in red tape. We understand that. We donít cross the border because of some trouble in the past involving a toy hand grenade, but we wonít go into that. Anyway, we were excited and so I went to my LGS to see if they had AofP.

Guess what? Both LGS were closed. Not closed as in weíre at home sleeping...

"Remember your training. And that you are only Human. You may not really die in Valhalla, but it sure feels like it when you do." Kaemon continued. "You're not Saint George. Leave the Dragons and Giants to the rest of us." The Prince saw Bahadur nod, however grudgingly. "This fight is about more than
