March Brushwork

Discovered an interesting little game called In the Emperor’s Name that lets you game vicious skirmish confrontations between Inquisitors and Chaos agents in the 40K universe. (Not a fan of 40K, but really enjoyed Dan Abnett’s “Eisenhorn” and “Ravenor” trilogies.) I spent what little hobby time I had painting up reinforcements for retinues.

My gaming buddy is in Hawaii. (not that I’m jealous. Oh no…) These will see action when he gets back.

Here are the results

More pictures of the Industrial Center

Fortunate to have a sizable collection of Sci Fi/P-A/Near-Future terrain for 28mm, the Industrial Center being popular.

Here are some more pictures of the current set up. Most of it is Litko Industrial Terrain System kits permanently attached to MDF boards, then accessorized with resin pieces, tubing, bitz. There’s a scratch-built office/garage, some fences, a three-story building (can’t recall whose) some Armorcast pieces, walls, tank traps. Top it off with some eBay pieces and voilĂ  – a dingy, dismal portion of the Apocalypse suitable for vicious firefights, blood-crazed, Rad-zombies, ruthless mercs, with a sprinkling of scavenge-able loot.

Game Night Pix

Here are some shots of Tuesday eve’s game night. Long time ago, I scribbled down some ultra-simple skirmish rules for pick-up games like this one. American forces were tasked with securing a damaged Sherman for repair crews. Germans sent a panzerschreck team and pals to finish the job. Click on the images for larger version. Americans took the first game hands-down. The replay saw the Germans come back hard.
