Update on my life

I know it's been a while since I wrote anything in my blog. We all go through dry spells where you neglect things you once loved. As of late I have been straying from the original mission of this blog. This blog is meant for game playing and OGRE/GEV.
Well, I am getting back on track on this blog.
I am excited about the new OGRE 6.0 Steve Jackson is putting out. Although I see he has a complete game planned the $100 price tag and the lack of resin cast miniatures to play with (like in Axis and Allies) turned me off a bit. I wish he would have resin cast the pieces. Is the resin casting so expensive? I really don't like the set up of counters when in a game that costs $100 I kind of expected more feel to the pieces. Most of the fun of an enlarged game like this is to TOUCH the pieces and turn them about in your hand. Additionally are they made of cardboard?
I am reticent to buy...
