Bounty Hunters and Ugly Pieces Of Ship

Sorry, no Walking Dead Wednesday today. I’ve been too focused on the upcoming CabinCon to work on anything else over the week.  The trip is nearly upon us and I’m just barely making it through.  Today, I finished up my bounty hunters and I think they turned out pretty well for blitzing through everything.

I don’t have a lot of time so I’ll just run through the rest of my shots of the bounty hunters from Imperial Assault as well as my Star Wars Uglies conversions.

CabinCon 2018 Prep

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.

Showcase: Assault on Hoth: The Empire Strikes Back

I’d had my eye on the old West End game, Assault on Hoth: The Empire Strikes Back, for a long time but I’m never a fan of chits and standees. So I decided to recreate a version like quite a few other BGGers and upgrade the components.

I finished this project earlier this year after working on it off and on for over a year but since Rogue One is hitting the theaters this weekend, these bad boys have been obsessively on my mind:

Cabin Con 2016 Recap part 1

So I finally have an open weekend to catch up a little bit and it’s time to recap the events of this year’s Cabin Con gathering. We decided to extend the convention by starting on Wednesday night instead of Thursday night.  This is the length of our annual Gen Con adventure and that length always felt like the perfect amount of time without becoming too long.

I picked up an out of town friend on Wednesday afternoon and after a bit of traffic, we met up with some of the others and caravaned up to the cabin. After some grocery shopping to stock up, we made it to the cabin and immediately busted out the games.
