It's Independence Day, woo hoo! A day off in the middle of the week is kind of ridiculous really but hey, a day off is a day off. Any excuse to burn burgers and have a brew is a good one.
I've actually done a fair amount of gaming the last couple of weekend, it's gone undocumented here but I'm about to rectify that. The day after Zig and I played Firestorm a couple of weeks ago, I met David up at Morningstar Games for a Dystopian Wars Fleet Action battle.
I used a fun pairing of Prussians and Eclipse Company mercenaries. David brought along his Blazing Sun Japanese.
In the end, it was a solid Prussian victory. My aggressive defense paid off - I took the battle to the enemy a long way from their objective. It felt great to put the DW toys back on the table. They really are a lot of fun.
Last Sunday, Dave and I met again at Morningstar, this time for some X-Wing. David flew a by-the-book TIE swarm - 8 x 12-poit TIES, while I used a Rebel mix including Poe Dameron, and ARC170 and a new Resistance Bomber.
Early into the proceedings I just could make anything happen and I wasn't feeling good about it at all.
I've been painting a bit recently and have finished up a few things.
Here's a fun little well / fountain with some creepy crawlies in it.
Another good pickup at Morningstar...
I can't believe Jeff had one of these on the shelf. A very nice pickup for my Red Fleet for StarDust.
And they got painted up quickly. I haven't touched the fighters yet.
And lastly, some Malifaux minis.
This is the "No Shelter Here" box set.
Creepy little girl and zombie baby
Three ghosts and a poltergeist
One of these days I'll put Malifaux on the table and try to learn the system, but until then, I just really love painting the models. Happy Fourth and stay safe!
