I have the last game of our Dropzone Commander Winter Campaign coming up and the event coordinator wants to use the Aegis Orbital Defense Laser as the focal point. I’ve been wanting one of these for a long time so I thought it was high time I picked one up.

It’s funny how projects can get set aside and then sudden inspiration will strike and move the project forward. A friend of mine got me a Phantom II ship pack for the X-wing Miniatures Game. While very nice, I had initially made fun of the ship because I wasn’t aware of what it was- a replacement shuttle for the Ghost in the Rebels cartoon series. Being tied the Ghost, I was more interested and dug out my Ghost, still in its box.
It wasn’t sealed because it was part of a custom project I had started back in June, ran into some trouble and shelved to be completed at a later date. That date became last night.
Over the summer, I had made up some street lights for the Batman Miniature Game. I thought they turned out well but after playing with they, they weren’t quite right: they weren’t very bright, the connections were fiddly and only four of the six original ones work properly now. So I was looking for a replacement and thought I found a good idea using a set of small lights and new posts to hang them on.
As described in my previous post, the new lamp posts were too small so I was going to have to mess around.
I thought I was going to get in another solo game of Championship Formula Racing but after prepping more Dropzone minis, I’ve gotten into a sort of painting rhythm and I might as well keep going while I can.
First up, I finished the last little unit for a potential army list I’ll likely try out at the next DZC meetup this month.
For over a year now, I’ve been working on a way to put a rigid base under the cardstock Dropzone Commander buildings. This would be used to keep them more square instead of bending and give them some weight so they don’t slide around as much.
With the wave 2 Kickstarter packages getting sorted out and shipped from Mantic’s Warehouse, I thought I’d start working on more Greene farm terrain. I’ve almost completed the Days Gone Bye scenarios so I need to get a jump start on the Greene farm material so I can hit the ground running.
I recently picked up the new “Walker Premium Accessory” kit that Mantic makes for the Walking Dead: All Out War game and had a chance to put it through its paces. The small kit contains a long 10″ ruler/template for noise/mayhem and walker shambling and a clear acrylic Killzone template.
I’ve been wanting a clear Killzone template ever since I saw the stock cardboard template on the Kickstarter so I’m glad to see that Mantic decided to make one. The template is a pretty standard clear acrylic with text etched in.
