More Test Of Honour Terrain

We’ve reached that lull in the moving process where we have enough time to not have to pack up everything else so I decided to use the weekend to work on some projects. Up first was “fixing” my Dojo for Test of Honour.

Photo Session: Paternity

With most of my stuff getting packed away, I decided to work on another gaming photo for the month. Last time, I was messing around with light for the Batman Miniature Game. This time around, I lighten things up with a little inside joke in Z-man’s classic worker-placement game, Stone Age.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Horsin’ Around

Another busy week so I didn’t get to work up anything new but did manage another Pit scenario.  This time I take a look back at a custom creation of mine: Horse.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Pit Stop

I was finally able to get back on track with Liam and his ever-looming date with The Pit.

Since I was behind, I have an extra survivor’s Pit story in today as well.  Beware a mother’s wrath…

2018 Game Challenge Update: 10 Weeks In

We just past the 10th week of the year and I thought it’d be a good time to take stock of the game challenges I had planned for the year.  At this point, I’ll be on track or beating the curve if I’m 20 or more games into my respective challenges.

So let’s see how I’m doing, beginning with part 1, my 100 games of the Duke challenge.

Entering The World Of Post-Apocalyptic Vehicular Combat. Again.

It’s funny how quickly a fire can spread, especially with heavy winds. A particularly fast spreading wildfire just hit my game group hard and it has us all scrambling to keep up.  Gaslands is one of the Osprey “Blue Book” games’ series where they have a designer put together a rule system and setting in a very defined format.  The game, written/designed by Mike Hutchinson, came out last year but really took off with my group thanks to a review of it on the Secret Cabal gaming podcast.

In essence, the game rule set for miniature car/vehicle combat using template movement a la X-wing (without the hidden selection process).  The rule set is super cheap and picking it up is easy by buying the PDF of Osprey’s site or picking up a hardcopy off Amazon.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Where There’s Smoke, There’s Fire

This week is a little bit of a change up.  I didn’t have time to run The Pit this week so I’ll have to do a double dose for next week.  I was, however, able to finish up a little side project with an extra truck miniature I picked up with the Collector’s Edition.

I already have two of these painted up so I wanted to do something a little different with a third open and, as I said just Monday, I’m really in to lighting things up. But first I need to see what is under the hood.

Test Of Honour Lanterns

With the Test of Honour Dojo complete, it was time to work on the other items that came in that kit: the sword ruler and the lanterns.

The lanterns were the more complicated item since I wanted to pimp mine out a little more.  I’m on a big “lighted” components kick so time to light these suckers up as well.
