When I played 40K Chaos marines I had a unit of possessed marines. Each one was named after an ex-girlfriend.
I had no problem when they died in the game…
There’s lots of cultural bias in wargame rules.
It all begins with the source material.
Here’s to having a boot in your face instead of silently suffering malaise.
It’s interesting to see anyone get “nostalgic” for the dreams of any type of dystopia.
Some cultists added.

Thaddeus, not everyone does this with names and — by your own examples — the people that do will do it no matter what the name of the game is.
Give me some credit, Noel.
What credit should I give you when all you really have done here is needlessly put the manufacturer on the defensive because you could not refrain from twisting the name?

It’s a good name.23/10/2015 at 14:57 in reply to: ONUS! Rome Vs Carthago: English Version of the game #33151
Despite being essentially free, it seems that dictionaries are woefully underused, these days.
Two more GameCraft buildings.
Not an endorsement since I haven’t played them, but I’ve read good things about Colonial Battlefleet, which offers flexibility.
The GW minis go for a pretty penny these days. Some of the posters on LAF show these.
Pictures of the Breetai “convention exclusive”. This model has been made available to backers and, for a weekend, anyone else that wanted them via the Palladium website.08/10/2015 at 14:29 in reply to: ONUS! Rome Vs Carthago: English Version of the game #32234
This looks like it could be a lot of fun.
Sadly my dealings with Steve Cole at ADB have shown him to be a complete a-hole which has put me off supporting the game further….
I have seen this written so often…
Nice collection you have, there.
In college, my friends and I used to play loads of Star Fleet Battles. After college, it was pushed to the wayside. I recently picked up Federation Commander, hoping that the easier game play would appeal to my current group of friends, but nobody is interested.
Some diorama type shots of Defender destroids (I just finished painting my second one) to try something different this time.
Fantastic terrain and reports. Really enjoyed them.
This is going to sound unusual, but what about covering a table in sand and piling up dunes out of that?
Continuing the au naturel terrain posts.
Someone asked about the trees I am using and I figured that is a good time to do a follow up to my previous post. I was planning on doing one anyway, but was holding off to use it to break up a chain of ‘here are yet more painted buildings’ posts. Trying to keep it fresh…
Love the coloring on these.
Thanks, guys. Sometimes I come up with something good…
To me terrain should try to combine functionality with aesthetics. It isn’t always easy, gaming is rough on models and terrain. Little details like a hedge around a house might not provide much in-game benefit, but makes the thing look a little more realistic or pleasing.
I created those bush bases with the idea that they can be placed around to break up areas that are too open, or to use as a demarcation line to show where wooded areas end or just about any other need one can have for a bush.
I am enjoying this project even though it is going to take me forever since I am such a slow painter. I’m still not sure what I am going to use as a base for creating city streets. Perhaps sheets of mdf. I think it will be a while until I get there, though. So many lovely buildings out there to build and paint!
My main concern is that the second wave of models from the kickstarter may not come out soon or even at all and this will feel like wasted time and money. Other periods have been calling out to me, but I am trying to stay strong here and actually finish something!
Not strictly Robotech related… I take a look at different types of hedges/bushes I’ve collected and how they compare in size to 28mm and 6mm models.
Vandals were here.
Back again with more buildings.
Two more acrylic buildings from GameCraft.
This next one was fun to do, a matboard building from GameCraft.
I magnetized a Spartan Destroid to give it versatility in weapon options, including using it as the special character Kain Weller.
A pictorial walkthrough and a lot more words on the blog.
More activity, this time it’s trees!
I picked up these plastic tress at a Michael’s craft shop. They are perhaps not as nice looking as many of the other trees that can be found, but they can take a lot of handling and that is a very solid point in their favor if you plan on using them for gaming. They are also pre-painted and have a decent number of sculpts.

I finished up another building from Burn In Designs.
Foamcore puzzles make nice terrain.
Anything can happen in the next half-hour.
A building from Burn In Designs:
Yes, only on the front of the building. It came is a set of two. The other one is nearly identical in the front, but has roof added details.
A few resin buildings that I’ve started painting.
New post in which I write about some acrylic buildings I got from GameCraft Miniatures:

For those who don’t want to read and would just like to see the picture…
Probably too early for many people to have bought these. Did you order any? I saw their Mega-City One setup on Lead Adventure and it looks like it has potential.
