With Test of Honour Week over, I started up a project I’ve been waiting on for a while now. In a bit of ironic coincidence, we took the weekend to go up to the Georgetown Loop and ride their old steam train. I also just happened to pick up the Dropzone Commander Monorail scenery kit. I usually don’t jump into a project as soon as I pick up the product but the forces seemed in alignment so I pushed forward.

We arrived in Indy with much less ado than last time. No redeye flights. Just a quick flight and hop over to the hotel. Gen Con scaled back their advertising this year and didn’t have anything at the airport this time. We did arrive a day before most people but they had adverts at the airport last time. All-in-all, traveling went well with one notable exception:
After some furious painting this afternoon, I finished up my Dropzone Commander army for the big campaign event at Gen Con 2018. I went through to finalize my list and found that I didn’t just need to work up my new commander Tilt Rotor aircraft but also needed to work up another squad of infantry and another set of tanks.
Lucky for me, the infantry I was painting used a pretty simple scheme of just taking the base primer grey, adding black details like the boots, belts, and helmet, then washing it all in pure GW Nuln Oil.
Mantic did a much better job this year running a “Walking Dead Week” and kept up their blog everyday on new Walking Dead content. Nothing new came out to calm my growing fear that Mantic is discontinuing its support for the solo aspects of the game but hopefully I’ll find out more at Gen Con. Unfortunately, I didn’t have much else to add this week after all their information came out but I did break open some Dropzone Commander models and work them up.
I picked up several of the new Famous Commander models and was excited to open up this bad boy and get it assembled.
