Tomorrow starts our annual CabinCon trip filled with games, games, and more games up in the confines of a nice secluded cabin. It’s a great chance to meet up with old friends and hit games that we usually don’t have time for or pulling out old favorites.
Every year, I try to throw out something unique and memorable and so this year I’m trying out a “Hunger Games” variant for Imperial Assault’s skirmish rules. I like the theme of a bunch of Bounty Hunters getting thrown together to fight it out Battle Royale style so I picked up all the Bounty Hunters I could find and decided to go the extra mile and try to get them painted before the Con. We’ll see if I can wrap them up in time.
First up we have the first four that I went through last night.
I started with the easy ones which meant all the droids like classic IG-88.
Then Cyborg anti-relations with evil-threepio, BT-1, from some of the comic book series. I didn’t read those but the idea of a psychotic protocol droid seemed amusing.
Finishing out the murderbots, we have the evil Warmachine version of R2: 0-0-0. I don’t even know what they call him. “Ooooo”? Whatever, he’s got rockets and flame weapons to spare so he’ll go in the pit, errr, I mean into the Hunger Game arena. May the odds be ever in your favor.
“Can’t wait to get started, right fellas?” Yep it’s Dengar time. I really never cared for this guy but Robot Chicken put a whole new spin on him and I can’t “unsee” it.
That leaves three more for today: Greedo, Boba Fett, and Bossk. Time to get crackin’.
Also, I need to get my “X-wing Uglies” ready for flight. I finished up two more ship bodies last night and will need to start drilling and magnetizing so that everything is ready to fly.
Added a little Twin-Ion Engine to the back of the AT-AT. Should be interesting.
