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.

Testing The Dojo Assault

As I talked about earlier, I first got into Test of Honour through the special expansion collection called the “Dojo Assault.” I also said how it was a missed opportunity to not include a scenario that could accommodate just the the material in that expansion so that others like me that used it as a starting point could get a taste for the game.  Not one to sit around and wait for someone else to come up with a solution, I decided to try and make a scenario for it myself.

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:

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…

Self-Promotion and Self-Discipline

A quick shout out this Friday that BoardGameGeek’s monthly photography contest is up and looking for your thumbs! I have my Batman image entered so check it out if you like it and want to see it and other great images.

Life has gotten quite busy lately as we are moving so my posts will be a bit briefer as we go through all the packing and hoop-jumping that is involved with relocating, even when it is only a few miles away.

Walking Dead Wednesday: Liam Gains Another Week

Life has really kicked into gear lately leaving me with very little time to game or pimp out things. Sadly, that means still no Pit this week but I did finish up the next victim, Liam.

Not much to say about this poor chap.  He gets two, maybe three panels in the entire Walking Dead series and didn’t seem like he was that bad of a guy. Now if only I could get some time to throw him in The Pit to see how he fares.  Maybe next week, Liam.

Gaslands Templates Complete

Not much to this update but I was able to finish up my Gaslands templates.

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.
