Metallic Conclusion

I know, I know. You might be thinking, “He can’t possibly have any more posts about Batman Metal…” But, you’d be wrong.  I have one final thing to wrap up and this one is a little odd as it’s not game or minis related.  It is the finale to my Metal comic collection: my comic’s case.

Wood is the new Metal after all.

Dipping Into The Animated Series

Batman The Animated Series was a staple cartoon that I watched as a kid and when I first got into Knight Model’s Batman Miniature Game, I was excited to see that they had some Animated Series figures.  Unfortunately, they only had a handful of minis and with the game being heavily skirmish-based, you couldn’t make much of a team out of their offerings.  The minis were great but they needed more of it.

Painting Boot Camp: A Simple Start

As I mentioned on Friday, we had an intro to painting session with a friend that has decided to join the hobby fold. He’s been on the sidelines, listening in, but now he’s ready to get into the game.  I decided to start from scratch so we first put together a mini from the North Star Frostgrave Soldiers set and then dove in with the two models I assembled/primed earlier.

The host was nice, the game was great and everything was well run.

Wood Is The New Metal

As I previewed last time, I’m doing some test projects to get back up to speed with my CNC machine, post-move.  One of the projects is making a Dark Nights Metal logo from the Batman comics. It’s a pretty simple routing cut but, as always, things are bound to go wrong.

Stupid “A”…

Dropping Minis All Weekend Long

This weekend saw a lot of Dropzone as we celebrated a friend’s birthday with a bunch of Dropzone Commander games going off simultaneously.  With 6 players, we had all five factions represented and I did a poor job of capturing the event as we had several interesting games going on.  My map featured the orbital defense laser in the “Laser 2” scenario from Reconquest Phase 1.  The Shaltari v UCM was  river defense layout and the Shaltari v Scourge was a custom narrative scenario with some elevated highway terrain.

A Song of Ice & Fire: Night’s Watch and Free Folk Full Reveals

Likely not a very inspired post but I took all the photos I could of the new expansions coming up for Song of Ice & Fire Miniatures game at Gen Con 2018 and figured I should post them up for others to see.
