I was really struggling getting these guys done … then as I talked about in audio episode 37, I started working on about 4-6 figures at a time and then suddenly I was having fun again and getting them done. At some point I’ll an 88 Flak gun, a mortar team, a few motorcycles with sidecars ,,, and few other goodies … but the main force is done.
Here are some of the new DAK dudes I mentioned in Audio Episode 37
The guys with stolen British short pants have bodies kitbashed from the new 8th army box from Warlord.
Full video review coming very soon.
Meanwhile, here’s a preview.
Note: No trimming, sanding, or anything else has been done yet. I wanted to show what they look like straight off the sprue.
This was officially the first game played on the new game table in the new game room. I played the Americans and GCmini employee Haden played the Germans. I was victorious and we both had a great time playing.
Not technically an “In The Game Room” video … but it’s me announcing something new for my company that you might find interesting.
I found this text in the Forward of the rulebook for Beyond the Gates of Antares. This paragraph seems like something everyone should read before starting any gaming session.
“Before we embark let us remember that as gamers we share a common bond not only with each other but specifically with our opponents, without whom there would be no games to play, no dice to roll and no reason to collect and paint our armies. All wargames are to a degree collaborative affairs in which, win or lose, it is the adventure of battle that matters most. These rules have been created to help us moderate our games, but no rules can hope to cover every conceivable circumstance, let alone the inconceivable ones! There will always be occasions when we must rely upon our mutual understanding, consideration and good sense. When we ready our forces for battle let those be the qualities we bring to the table along with our armies and dice.

A while back, starting with episode number 39, I began cleaning and reorganizing my workbench. A few episodes later the workbench was basically finished, but there was always a separate, small bench off to the left that still required attention. Today, I finally got around to giving that small workbench a little bit of attention. It’s not done, but it’s a lot better than was last time you guys saw it.
