I’m nearing the end of my plans for my Old West set and the specifics I’m creating for Dracula’s America. I have a few last items I want to wrap up before the end of the month to close the book on this project so that it can pull out and play at a moments notice. One of those items is finishing up the interior of my buildings.

With my first intro game of Infinity under my belt, it was time to start painting up some minis but I really struggled to figure out my army colors. I’m playing Yu Jing but yellow just isn’t my color. Nothing wrong with it but it’s not a color I want to paint with all the time or play with. Red is usually my goto but Infinity has a major faction, the Nomads, that studio paint typically red. And my friend already has his Nomads red and I don’t want to confuse things.
Lucky for me, Corvus Belli released concept art of the figures in an easy illustrated style that I can quickly mess with in Photoshop to see what I like.
This week I worked a bit more on my Walking Dead terrain, specifically the game board. As I discussed in my paper terrain post, I prefer terrain that is quick, usable, and easily stored. Taking my Walking Dead game into the monochromatic world of black and white (b/w) makes printable paper terrain even easier. Also, painting a full game board in b/w seems too tedious for me. It can be done to great effect, however. Just check out this thread on coolminiornot.com and or this one on lead-adventures.de.
Ventura was one of those games that Fantasy Flight Games (FFG) brought over from its Italian publishing partner, Stratelibri, but never ended up taking off much in North America. I found the game at Gen Con in 2011 when FFG was hyping up the release. For whatever reason, our group actually enjoyed the theme and mechanics so I eventually picked it up.
No Thanks! has been a favorite light game of ours for a long time. In 2013, a group of us decided to host our own private “convention” in a cabin near Rocky Mountain National Park and one of the games that came up all the time was No Thanks! again.
Since everyone enjoyed the “CabinCon” as we were calling it, we decided to make it an annual event and we started wanting to do our own convention swag. No Thanks! was such a hit, I decided to make a custom CabinCon set for every one.
After working up a lot of pimped-out items for my copy of Thunder Road, I’m still finding I want to do more. I want to add some different features and I started thinking of possibly moving it to a new setting and an urban Death Race theme seemed appropriate and interesting.
When I first picked up Thunder Road, I noticed the UK version (the one I own) is actually a great match for the 10mm Dropzone Commander‘s scale models.
