Large ZONA ALFA game last Friday night as a handful of the Cape Cod Wargame Commission met for Chinese take out and a quick salvage run into the Exclusion Zone. Other Pat managed to break away from baby duty to join Max, John, myself, and a visitor from Virginia, Drew K for a few hours. […]Read More ZONA ALFA: Refinery Number 3
Our Symbaroum Campaign is back on track after a stuttering, sputtering stretch. Recent sessions found our Heroes tasked with escorting the monthly supply run to a series of outposts along the River Moon. Their final destination was Cercul Ossos, (Bone Circle) a major fortress in the province’s interior. The original plan was to stop at […]Read More What Darkness Hides: Beside the River Moon.
Speaking of ZONA ALFA, here are three character figs: premium Zone Guide Yuri Bonyev, the mysterious ‘Marked One’, and a Bloodsucker, looking for his swamp, I guess. That’s all for now. Have a good weekend.Read More Found this the other night…

Few months ago – around the time […]Read More Dungeon Party and New Characters

In the meantime, I managed to get some color on the first of the ZONA ALFA demo figs. A Military crew with a Guide, a Medic, and a […]Read More ZONA ALFA Crew
A NEW WAR ROOM Moving the hobby game room down into the basement took a while, what with preliminary clean up and then physical transfer of well, everything. But it is more or less complete. I’m pressed for time today but here are photos of last night’s Zona Alfa game in the new digs. Here’s […]Read More Pix from last night’s game in the new war room.
28mm Fantasy figs, that is. Consolidating the collection of Reaper figs used in our Song of Blades and Heroes games, I’m offering four sets of player character miniatures. These are metal, painted and satin sealed for protection, and are mounted on 40mm bases. (I find the larger size gives enough room for the oversize, dynamic Reaper figs.) […]Read More Figs for Sale
Trying to change my palette if not my technique to achieve a different look on my minis. I read a ‘How To Paint Military Miniatures’ book ages ago, and settled on the ink wash/Shade Down method rather than the Highlight Up all the cool kids do nowadays. Whippersnappers! Back in my day, a real painter […]Read More Recent Brushwork
A root canal and a light work schedule for a couple days gave me some time at the painting desk. First, here’s my take GW’s new super-sized Primaris Marines. Stock color schemes, I have to say they paint up easily and make a table top quality painter like myself look good. Blue with darker shoulder […]Read More Primaris Marines and Vedros Objectives
