What have The Sentry Box staff been up to – Oct 24-30

Kris got a lot of painting done for his Star Wars Legion army this week! “I didn’t have much time over the weekend to get any painting done, but I managed to paint another unit and commander for my Star Wars Legion army. I love the look of these Syndicate Thugs and they are sure to add some character to my Shadow Collective army.”

Kris finished the first of his units of Mandalorian Super Commandos this week. “I was not a fan of the flight stands that the models come with so I replaced them with Paperclips that i straightened and painted black.  They were lots of fun to paint but I will report back after I paint 4 more units.” :rolling_on_the_floor_laughing:

Renee read Auberon, the novella in The Expanse series that takes place between the events of the 7th and 8th books. “It focuses on a Laconian who is sent out to govern one of the colony worlds and provides some interesting insight into the Laconian culture as he and is wife try and adjust to a world with a completely foreign, to them, way of life.”

Renee and Jenn played a couple games of the new arrival Get on Board: New York and London, which reimplements the Japanese import Let’s Make a Bus Route! “Players build bus routes in either New York (2-3 players) or London (4-5 players), picking up tourists to bring to tourist locations, taking workers to office buildings and students to university. There are common objectives (e.g. pick up 5 students) as well as personal objectives (your route must pass through 3 specific intersections). It’s a quick and light game which we both really enjoyed!”

Greg and Tracy played the second scenario in Unlock: Legendary Adventures, a Robin Hood themed scenario. “We seemed to understand what we were supposed to do much more than in the first scenario, although we still needed a few hints. There were some cool puzzles and a neat visual element in this one.”

Later in the week Kris finally finished some more units for his Shadow Collective army. “I had a bit of a busy week so these felt very Stop/Start and I never felt like I hit a rhythm to just get them done but they are finished now!”

Kris finishes a fantastic week of painting with, “Painting Bossk is always enjoyable, this is maybe the 4th or 5th time I have painted this model.” :rolling_on_the_floor_laughing:
