I was talking with a co-worker today about game nights…be it family, friends, youth groups or whatever group gets together to enjoy a bit of (hopefully) friendly competition, laughter and relationship building. She mentioned Settlers of Catan which is a favorite of mine. My family isn’t quite as excited about it. In fact sometimes they say in a very loving way….”Oh sure if we just want to watch mom play. ” I may have won by a landslide a few times….not that anyone is keeping track. 😉
Anywho…I thought I’d share for this month’s Second on the 2nd my WIP Catan board pieces.
I’ve working on painting all of the Settlers of Catan pieces in between playing nursemaid. Mini-me has influenza. I’m beginning to think that Typhoid Mary is camped out in our house.
See those little tiny bits of white in the green hex tiles. Those are teeny tiny sheep..complete with black faces. I have to take off my glasses and hold the tile a couple inches from my face to see to paint them. BAH!!! Getting older isn’t for the faint of heart.
The attention to detail is worth it in the end though. Once I get all the pieces completed, we’ll decide in the border color for all the tiles. It must be consistent throughout the tiles. I’m leaning towards a cream to taupe tone so that the paint job on each will really pop.
I also have to share this Model T Mr. G printed. He had to modify the original CAD file as it wasn’t going to print correctly. He designed the wheels, axle pieces and the mounts for the axles.
The penny is for scale. This is for a history presentation J is doing today. He and his partner thought a 3D model would add some punch to their project.
Time for a bit of tea before some errands and more nursemaid duty. I’ll do my best to get around to visit my T stands for Tuesday friends as soon as I can.
What are you doing today?
