    I own a Cigar Box mat and am very happy with it – nice quality felt(?) that drapes beautifully. As an aside, I do wish they’d come out with another space mat, one without the heavy nebula effect. It’s surprised me how hard it is to find a more subtle space mat.

    Not my period, but must say I love that cover!

    I’m always intrigued by unusual projects like this. Have to agree about the minis – they are gorgeous, and you’ve done a very nice job painting them up. Your rink looks amazing!

    While I like it all, my favourite bit is the rubber ducky assault craft. Did you make those yourself? Superb!

    They turned out very well. Can’t wait to see paint on ’em!

    Soooo … does this detailed treatment of the tower mean there may be a new terrain feature coming?

    It would be pretty cool if it did.

    Your description of the tower sounds spot on to me. Don’t forget a spider will be needed at some point…

    That building both looks great and has infinite gaming possibilities. Marvelous work, Abwehr!

    I really enjoy these AARs. Must say your paper figures look great as well – where do you get them from?

    I second (third?) the request to keep those reports coming. Your club looks just amazing. The cutaway walls were a brilliant idea, smoothly solving one of those constant dilemmas with wargame terrain: how to keep things looking good but still highly functional. As for the game itself, it was an excellent read as always. I hesitate with The Department, torn between loving the setting and the general cyberpunk atmosphere, and the fact that so few games seem to have any action. It doesn’t sound very good, I know, but I like some gun or sword play in my games. That, and I don’t like PDFs, but that’s another subject.

    In any case I still loved the report, and hope very much that you keep them coming!

    A superb AAR, Graham. Recent reports about SS&SS both here and on LAF have tempted me to give this game another go. I’d thought I’d preferred Rangers of Shadowdeep, but now think that judgement may have been hasty as the above game sounds like a lot of fun. Many thanks for the entertaining write-up!

    That looks the business. Dare we hope for some action (game) shots down the road? I hope so!

    Those are lovely, true works of art. You have some lucky players.

    Hmmm. I might have to take a look at that Star Wars game. Thanks very much for the tip!

    EDIT: Two questions: could the SW game be used solo in a similar way to what we see in the video (I’m guessing the answer is yes, as you’ve both just said they are pretty close – but want to check all the same); and I’m assuming these games have mods for greater and lesser pilots (aces or novices)? My thought is to have heroes taking on larger numbers of alien baddies…

    That looks like great fun. I’m very impressed with the rules. So much so that I wish they had a spaceship version as that would be perfect for a project I have in mind. Yet now I find myself tempted to do WWI dogfights. Thanks so much for the the excellent and informative video!

    Inspiring work, Greg, especially as lately I’ve been thinking about using Starport Scum for some Battlestar Galactica (the original series, thank you very much!). Definitely a good deal of humour potential there as well, I think. Thank you for the post – your figures and layout look just great!

    You’ve done a lovely job on those. While I like the Warlord sculpts well enough, my favourites are still those by Old Glory – older models but still the most characterful to my eye, and not bad price wise. Having said this, I think one needs to drill the hands for spears, so that makes them a non-starter for me.

    In my humble opinion the ghouls are some of your best figures yet. While not quite as useful, the naked Erlend figure also has some good scenario potential, like when he is suddenly beset by enemies whilst mooning in the Princess Badoora’s bedchamber, and so on…

    Brilliant additions all round!

    Those look great. I still have a soft spot for the old fashioned figures – are Hinchliffe available any more or were they just something you had tucked away?

    Don, I’m embarrassed to say I don’t see how to send you a PM on this site. I’d love to hear your ideas though – maybe others would too!

    Some excellent tips, gents, thank you. I like THW’s offerings so I may have to take a look at Fighter Command. I’ve also heard good things about Silent Death. I’ll take a look at Tiny Air Combat!

    Ah, I thought you might be using them. Back in the day I’d also painted up dozens of the Projekt X zombie and character figures as well, for more Apocolyptic, Pulpish action. Fantastic little (big!) sculpts. Great fun and good memories!

    Fun sounding project, Harry. Out of curiosity, what make are the figures? I remember years ago North Star carried a 1/48th range. I painted up dozens of those sculpts – while they were a little fiddly to assemble the results were worth it. The larger size really makes them pop. Do share pics when you have them!

    To me the last illustration of the black-furred beast feels the most authentic, though this is probably mainly from Frazetta’s take on Howard’s world. In any case, that’s the one I’d go with.

    They are looking really good, Abwehr! As it happens I’m doing some JD gaming today, so this puts me in the proper mood…

    Well done, especially in skewering that vulture! I think you were wise to add the extra walls – cover is essential in this scenario. Sorry if you mentioned it and I missed it, but are you playing these games solo? Thank you for posting!

    You’ve got a very nice wood effect going there. How did you do it? Is it a stain of some sort? Looking forward to seeing it further gussied up…

    Looks great, how did it go?

    It went well, all enemies slayed and no casualties. The infected trees were burned and we rescued a survivor.

    Congratulations, though beware Infected Trees tends to be one of the easier scenarios. Some of the later one are tough!

    Love the look of those en-masse. Any chance you might give us some close-ups, so we can better see what they look like individually? Whether you do or don’t, you have an amazing collection!
