I’m back from our CabinCon weekend and haven’t quite gotten everything unpacked yet but I did see some awesome news coming out of Knight Models.

The Gaslands Facebook page is a non-stop flow of treasure hunters looking for the next cool Hotwheels at their local supermarket or thrift store. While I’m all set to use my half-scaled version from Dropzone Commander, I was curious to see what could be had at my local Walmart.
While not really something to post a “look at me!” thread on Facebook, I did find this little Cars 3 toy interesting for the flaming oil drums. They looked like they were in scale with my 28-32mm terrain so I took a gamble and picked it. If nothing else, the car could go to my boy and the obligatory other toys could go to rest of the minions when I got home.
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.
This week starts the last five weeks of the year and looking at my 6 x 6 Challenge list, things are looking pretty tight. I have five more games to get in to complete my challenge with Walking Dead dragging its heels with the least games played. Sad as I thought it would be one of the easiest to complete but I got a bit sidetracked. Since the remaining items seem pretty straight forward, I’ll be focusing a bit more energy to get Walking Dead to the table to try to finish out my Chapters series and mess around with some of the new missions in the later rule books.
After Walking Dead, I will have a few stragglers with one game left each. Championship Formula Racing should be easy to get a game in again and I plan to do that this week. Dropzone Commander has it’s last game already set up on the calendar as the local group completes another game in their ongoing Winter Campaign. That leaves Batman Miniature Game.
My impromptu painting session culminated in another Batman Miniature Game earlier last week. I kept the same crew as last time and my friend swapped out Comissioner Gordon for the SWAT Alpha member that I just painted up and Agent Ron.
I still had the last map set up so we decided to keep it and switch scenarios. This time we chose the Skirmish scenario which only cares about killing opponent figures. You still have objectives but the scenario doesn’t favor them any more than normal.
We got lucky this week and had a rare opportunity to get in some mid-week gaming and with the end of the year looming, I pushed to get in another game of Batman in. From our last game, we weren’t convinced Commissioner Gordon was a good fit for my friend’s Batman crew. My friend didn’t have time to work up an alternate model so I took advantage of the good weather to work up one of my SWAT henchmen.
