Jess suggested we pass a rainy evening playing some Battlelore. I chalk this up to reading the Hobbit to her at bed time. Anyhow, out came the game and off we went using one of the basic introductory scenarios.
Jess played pretty well (for a seven-year-old) and managed to put me back on my heels with her aggressive style. I keep forgetting that the optimal move is invisible for her and she tends to simply lash out.
Her she is running down my cavalry with her heavies, followed by another pursuit and beating of my foot. Below you can see her trash talking me, although note the banner count. She took defeat pretty well, all told.
Up next: I am about to base a bunch of 28mm Normans (awaiting the decals drying) and I've started painting on a bunch of GW skaven for a HoTT ratmen army. Nice figures. Crazy prices but very nice to paint and a pleasant distraction from horse and musket. After them perhaps a few more Normans for a war wagon and then I'm not sure what. Maybe some 1/72 AWI. I also have a 15mm zombie commission on the way.
