Dropzone Commander 1st Game ....finally

So, an amazing thing happened last weekend.  For the first time, EVER, my wife decided to play a wargame with me.  My daughter and wife teamed up against me (what they do best) playing the evil Scourge in a starter Dropzone Commander game.  I played the UCM and we fought it out over 6 vicious turns.  Amazingly in the end, I won, by a fair margin, but payed for my victory in dropships.  Two lessons learned: 1) Mobility and timing moves are extremely important.  2) Units die quick if left exposed.

Endstate, I ordered a bunch more DZC stuff to flesh out big armies.  What an easy fun game to play. Laser ruler is a must for LOS.

 First infil complete.
Dropship 2 dies
Turn 1 Rushes for the OBJs.

 In the beginning when I had three dropships for a short while.

Hunting down the last Scourge Infantry to keep last OBJ safe.

Leviathan 3D Modeling Reloaded (Creating the Version 2 Models)

Through online forums I have come into contact with two very motivated and talented gentlemen and coincidentally lovers of Renegade Legion: Leviathan.  With several ships from the Capital Ship book outstanding, I wanted to start looking at ways to upgrade or rebuild the current models I had made and find ways to make them more detailed straight off my low quality 3D printer.  So far we have collectively made some strides forward and it feels very good to be in a team motivated more by love of the game and less by profit.  Here are some pictures from the work so far.

Our test ship is a destroyer class Renegade/ Commonwealth ship called the Exeter.

Painting my German Waffen SS BA/K47 Army

I got back to using my airbrush this last weekend.  Its really quite easy to setup, use and clean.  Im not sure why I have procrastinated so much, but I really needed to get these painted.  So, over the last six months I have been slowly, or maybe quickly, buying up clearance items here and there online to build a mechanized German force for use with Bolt Action or Konflikt '47(Same rules really).  The force could also be used for DUST, THW Weird War or even Secrets of the Third Reich.  I really like the alternate WW2 setting and think it is the right mix of pre-digital and historical war game for me.  A friend got me interested and we have had a couple duels so far, but not a full on battle.  Now that I have a fairly table ready force I may be able to draw him back out onto the field of battle.

Here are some of my walkers.

The walker armored personnel carriers are really cool, but very large on the table.  I guess we will just need to use a bigger table. Next is decals and then detailing.

I don't think I can field a German force without the trademark Tiger or why not have both!
