Terrain making goals

Waiting on my Crusader Army I starting to build up some Flames of War desert, I have decided to create and build more terrain for this.

The following link is a good idea and I will use this guys one to get some trees going. I will probable have to make more bases for the desert and I better ask my friend for more MDF cut boards so I can work on this.

Building Palm Trees

I also want to build some buildings for the desert, and will probable just copy the Flames of War ones for style and type of buildings.

I can't wait for the Crusader stuff to get in, still waiting on my friend to put the order in for me and pay him!

Flames of War >> Arabs Israelis War!!!

While browsing the Flames of War sight, I ran across a pdf of the New Zealand con, and in the pdf it talked about having a table for new and future releases.... There it was Arabs Israelis War! Should prove fun fun. I wish I could go and see it in person, though I hope someone takes pictures and post them online.

Flames of War: Pat H. vs George K.

Watched a game of early war between Pat H. and George K. It was a good back and forth game. The mission was Pincer where George was defending.  I took three pictures of the game.

tiny tiny armored tracked tanks.  =P
These these are pretty cool looking.

So very tired today

Watched my friends play a game of Flames of War. It was an early war Japanese vs German. It was a first game for Brian H. vs George a veteran player.  Brian got a feel for infantry vs infantry match. (two quick photos)

I had a quick game with Brian afterwards but I was pretty tired and may have moved to quickly when I played him, due to time and the store closing soon.  Over all it was fun, he out gunned me but I out numbered him. ( I forgot to take a picture of my game with Brian).

There will be a game this Sunday with George and either Brian H. and/or Alika H. Both who are very new to the game. I hope they learn a thing or two from George who has good tactical and an aggressive style to his play. This will be played before George K. gets his game with Mike D.

Photo editing fun (Musket and Tomahawks)

Just playing around with photos

Painting bug time!!!

I haven't painted anything for quite some time. I have dug out some soviet armor to paint up. I figure it would be an easy entry to getting things all painted up.  BA-10 armored cars are first then some assault guns.

Command and Colors: Napoleonics

My second game of "Command and Colors: Napoleonics". It seems silly when first looking at the game, but it is a very challenging game to play. If you ever have a chance to play it, you just have to try it out! It is a card driven game with some dice to figure out combat.

jagdpanther with ruined building

I painted the ruined building up years ago for a friend and always wanted the building for myself. I figure I'll paint the Jadpanther and building as a quick little side project. I am starting to feel the paint bug coming my way this month.

Wish I could find a picture of the one I painted for my friend.

What makes a good hobby store?

After seeing a new hobby store open up today and posting a review on it, I started to think about what makes a good hobby store?

My thoughts are as follows.
Clean well organized.
Place to play my games.
A place to meet people in my hobby.
Places to eat nearby.
Making special orders of things not in stock or carried normally by the store. If I ask and am willing to pay for it, I would like it in a timely fashion.
Friendly employees and owners.
Bathroom nearby

Bonus things
A computerized inventory system so I know what is on hand. Or a staff that knows exactly where everything is. A way to contact other players with same interest in games.

I want to go to and enjoy my hobby to get away from real life and to relax. I don't want to feel stressed at a place that I go to relax.  I don't like having to worry if I am in the way of other people when I play or if they are playing. I really don't like digging for stuff.

Pictures of a few games from the past two week. sorry no AAR for these games.

Desert Flames of War between George K. and Mike D.

A picture of where my SU85M take a beating on a ridge trying as they will to stop the german armor.

Random pictures of a Muskets and Tomahawks game at my friend Richard B. office with George K., Pat H., Richard B. and myself. We actually had two games that day. Good Times!!

Random Unit Picker

For Muskets and Tomahawk, I have created a random unit picker, using percentile dice. During our games of Muskets and Tomahawks this kept on showing up during our fights and was time consuming to figure out what random unit on the table was chosen. We would count them up and roll multiple dice till we got the last one. Very time consuming.

The file is now in the download section of my blog. Go there to get the PDF file.

Updated Army List Generator for Muskets and Tomahawks

I have updated the Army List generator, due to finding an error with the Continental Light Infantry not showing the right choices for weapons, and options.  It is corrected now, so download the current version 1.08.
