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.

With my Gen Con days concluded, I only have a quick wrap-up of some final thoughts and this year’s spoils.

Gen Con 2018: Day 4

The final day for Gen Con 2018 was upon us and there wasn’t much for me to do except run my last two events of the Con.  First up was my third annual Loopin’ Chewie tournament.

Gen Con 2018: Day 3

With half of the Con down, Saturday started with the usual crush of weekend attendees. I tend to avoid the dealer hall on the weekend as it is just too crowded.  Instead, I had my Dropzone Commander event in the main event hall.

Gen Con 2018 Day 2

Gen Con 2018 Day two began a little later, thankfully and was tournament-free.  Up first was the Frostgrave Event with the designer, Joseph McCullough.

Gen Con 2018 Arrivals

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:

Gen Con 2018 Away

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.

Construction Woes

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.

Thoughts On A Game Of A Game Of Thrones

So after our first game of A Song of Ice & Fire Miniatures Game, I’ve had some time to collect my thoughts.  As a quick recap, we played a 30 point “small” game using only the starter set. The army lists were netdecked from the Kickstarter updates that featured some initial build lists.

New Temptations, New Shinies, And New Upcomings

I got a chance to play Games Workshop’s Warhammer Underworld: Shadespire the other day and that is a fine little piece of miniature bliss. The last GW game I played and enjoyed was Space Hulk 3.0, but I don’t own it. I own a copy of Dreadfleet but it is still in shrink and I haven’t gotten enough of a push to rectify that.  Shadespire, however, seems right up my alley.
