I’m back! And I brought videos!


Well it’s been a while since my last post and my last video, but things get a little crazy in life and you have to re-prioritize, I won’t bore you with the details all you need to know is that it’s all sorted and we’re all good to get back into this whole blogging/video making thing.

Anyway I have been busy on multiple projects as anyone who watches my channel will know. I have made great progress on my novels and the world that surrounds them. Part one of a three part story has been published on Amazon (http://www.amazon.co.uk/Stravans-Sacred-Mission-part-Magick-ebook/dp/B007YUZ09U/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1426771096&sr=8-1&keywords=Stravan%27s+Sacred+Mission%3A+A+part+of+the+Magick+of+Myth) as an E-Book for a little while, I’m now well through part 2. I also started a new sci-fi branch of the world set far flung into the future with space ships, other worlds and intergalactic political turmoil. I enjoy build the world and filling it with intrigue and interest so the books take a long time to write as I like to mull over all aspects. I will get them there eventually.

On the cosplay front I have managed to get more of my Halo armour done and have started work on the Halo Magnum.

As you can see it is roughed out in foam and will soon be coated and smoothed, carved etc. This will probably end up being PVA’d and then painted. I really enjoyed knocked this together, it mainly gave me something to do while builders were knocking down a chime in my bathroom, but that’s a whole other story.

Oh yeah and along the cosplay DIY aspect of things I have been sneakily trying to get my fiancé to help my clear out our cellar, which I can then conveniently place a gaming table down there! So check out the video above for how that’s going.

Then my main focus for a while has been finally developing my board game ideas. Over the last two years I have had multiple game ideas that never made it past a sentence or two on my Google Drive . Though after cleaning out my virtual writing desk I found them again and have been working hard to get playable prototypes and usable rules.

So expect to see quite a few articles about these as I originally had two ideas, but as I started to get my creativity juices flowing I’m now up to 7 ideas, sadly it takes quite a while to produce anything so it’s going to be a slow process before we see all of them in the flesh (or is that card). I am planning on perhaps doing a Kickstarter for one of the ideas or perhaps a campaign to fund me as a designer to get all my designers made and published through official publishers. I don’t know and I will be discussing this in later posts, which will probably lead me to having a specific page on this blog for the board game design.

Any who I think I’ve rambled on enough for now. If you have any advice or comments on anything I have wrote here drop me a comment. If you are feeling really kind follow me and subscribe to my YouTube channel it would be very much appreciate it.

Look forward to more blog posts and videos in the coming days.

Cheers,

Ollie
