Outside of casting -a lot of casting- the past few weeks have been centred on all new games and miniature lines. I’ve played Gaslands, I participated in two painting challenge and contest, the first for Gangs of Rome, the second for Deepwars, and this is not the end of it, au contraire. I have been eyeing the miniatures and artworks of Anyaral: The World of Twilight for many years now, but always put aside ordering some for a lack of funds, or opponents.

Yaum plays Nomads, a nomadic (duh…) faction living on three giants spaceships, instead of owning land like the other factions. The display would represents a section of one of those ships, with an industrial look to match his existing bases.
