I didn’t really mention it much and we don’t talk much about Kickstarters and what we are backing on the show, but I backed the Dropfleet Commander one and it has recently made it to my door! If you don’t know what Dropfleet Commander is, it’s a space ship miniatures game intended to similulate fleet actions attempting to land assets on planetary locations for the purpose of defending or retaking planets. The game is by Hawk Wargames and their other big game, Dropzone Commander, is a 10 mm combined infantry/land/air assets attempting to retake stretegic locations within a small area of a planet.

Gen Con 2016 in Photos

Gen Con 2016 was great and I had a blast. This year was the busiest year that I have ever had with three True Dungeon runs, seminars, hobby events, and other craziness. My biggest three highlights for the show were:

  1. Going in with the rush at the opening of the vendor hall and buying the new Malifaux Crew Box, The Queen Returns for Neverborn.
  2. Doing the Hirst Arts resin casting class. Short and fast, but I learned so much about resin casting. Both safety tips and product tips.
  3. Being a part of the Infinity Seminar for what’s new that was done on Saturday and then walking away with a model for free. I had no idea how cool the seminar would be and actually walked out of their pumped about my PanOceania troops (which then got me to buy more models…..hmmmm…I see what they did there!!! Hahaha)

So we’ll be talking about this on the show I am sure, but in the mean time here are a ton of really quality pictures to tie you over!!!

Poe Dameron X-Wing Repaint

Front Right

Well it may be a little late with the Heroes of the Resistance coming fairly soon but I had started this just before its announcement.  I’m still glad I did it and I have a Poe Dameron black and orange x-wing before the release.  I wasn’t going for super detailed but I would have to say the quality is still better than a stock model so there is some satisfaction there as well.  Here’s a look at mine and a bit of a guide if you want to do this repaint.

Sci Fi Communications Array

2016-05-02 21.15.28This is a cool little piece of terrain I worked up that I received from Warlord Games when I bought the Gates of Antares starter box on pre-order (which looks like a really cool game that I want to play some time soon).

Episode 68: The 9th Age

Episode 68

In this episode, our hosts talk about square bases! Yes, that’s right, but it’s not Warhammer, it’s The Ninth Age. A new fantasy battles game that is now in version 1 and plays much like that old game with square bases we used to play. We are joined by special guest Fergus who has played not only in a couple of GT’s now but also ran the tournament at Adepticon for The Ninth Age at Adepticon.

If you are interested in The Ninth Age, the rules, the game, or just more information make sure you check out the website where all of the rules are free and available at the-ninth-age.com

With that, let’s roll those dice! Wisco’s for the win!!!!
