Ask Allen…

I’ll be recording a new audio podcast in a few days and I’d like to get some questions from you guys.  Most any topic is fine,,, you can ask about projects I’m working on for my personal miniatures collection, projects for my business, new products coming out, how I pick what to make models of for myself or my business, model making techniques, painting techniques, general questions about my business, questions about gaming conventions, questions about micro armor wargaming, etc etc,,, you get the idea.

Please submit your questions via email to  (please put “Ask Allen” in the subject line of your email). Questions can be in written form and I’ll read them on the podcast or you can record an audio clip with your question and I’ll play it on the podcast and answer it.

In The Game Room – Episode 30 – Nearly 2 hours of fun

In this episode of the in the game room podcast I attend the live launch event for ClearHorizon Miniatures new product called Sigma Event 2177.
For the one hour and 45 minute broadcast we discuss ClearHorizon Miniatures’ new product for a while and then go off on dozens and dozens of different tangents including 15 mm sci-fi buildings, Games Workshop bringing back epic scale gaming this time in 10 mm scale, airbrushes, Game Ogre’s new store in Westlake Village, whiskey shots, cleaning airbrushes, future painting demos by Todd, the old sci-fi RPG called Traveller, preventing airbrush tip drying, beer, Vallejo airbrush thinner, Jason’s real job, more painting tips, back blowing, sci-fi books, more whiskey shots, cleaning and preparing metal miniatures for paint, miniatures storage solutions, CA glue and accelerator, more beer, questions from viewers, and a whole lot of general silliness and craziness.

In The Game Room – Episode 29

In this podcast I talk about determining ranges and line of sight in miniatures wargaming.

I searched for a laser measure like the one I showed in the video but I could not find one from Bosch that seemed to have same the features as the one I have.  But I found one from another manufacturer that seems to have the features you need and it’s about 60% the price of the Bosch unit.  Click here to check out this laser measure.
