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.

Well, the new owners of Dropzone Commander, TTCombat, held a live chat on the current state of the product line and that of it’s sister game, Dropfleet Commander. One of the admins for the main Facebook group posted the summary for those that couldn’t attend:
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.
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.
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.
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.
