1/72 Crossfire @ Darwin Tabletop Gamers this Sunday. My mate from work & myself played two games of a semi-historical Crete scenario. He has only ever played RISK and was curious about my 'nerdy' hobby, so I invited him along. The game garnered a fair bit of interest from a couple of the younger D&D lads (mid to late teens)..so much so that *they* cajoled me into teaching them the rudiments of the game, which then turned into a third game of the scenario. By this stage my workmate was fully into it, and was giving the younger guys advice, and practically adjudicated the game. Everyone had a good time, and it was great to see everyone thinking tactically even after a few turns...The scenario turned out 1 German minor victory, 1 Commonwealth win, 1 German win.

Not my first choice of era, but my opponent specifically requested it. I was saved from defeat when a lucky shell from a 25pdr took out Rommel himself and the Jerries were forced to retreat at the same time I was.
The laws of probability do not apply to my dice in wargames or to my finesses in bridge.

A sub-par game of 40K:


And some rather fun and difficult dungeon crawls:

I did more than alright today; in two of three rounds, most of my army refused to move, and the Military Orders won the day anyway. Against the Byzantines, that's most satisfactory.

The rocks are really cool  :-* and it would be great if Mason could say a few words how he made them!

Thanks, chaps.

The small rocks in that picture are the Battlefield in a Box 'Badlands Rocks from GF9 (sadly now OOP, I think) whilst the larger ones are all aquarium decorations.
The whole bunch have been repainted so that they all work together.

Painting started with a burnt umber base coat and gradually lightened up by drybruahing, adding yellow ochre and finally white to the mix.
The 'banding' around them is simply brown washes after they have been painted.

There are more pics of them, and others, here:
