The factory buildings were from a set of molds I put together.

TC; we did get a lot of people coming over to take a look. Quite a few people assumed (due to the "England Invaded" sign I'm sure) that we were doing Operation Sealion. All the comments I got back were very positive and quite a few people took serious interest in the availability of the rules.

All in all it was a very fun weekend.

More reports this afternoon.

Which system are you using again?

And my Fenians would have been victorious if not for Rich leaving the game a bit for a G&T.  Pete stepped in, and his dice-fu decimated me! 
Have no fear, my terrier is still alive and will nip at their heels in retribution!
It was a stupendous game and Mike did a great job.  I did venture in and purchased the rules at Brigade.  What a blast!  I've been a sucker for VSF since my days as a kid playing the Space 1889 RPG.
At some point, I'll put up some of the piccies I got of my side of the table.

Hauptmann Affe Onkel - Commander of the Jagermonsters. Made with minimal changes to a Reaper Chronopia figure.

I didn't see the dog chewing on the monkey's ankle until I was going through pictures on Monday.

Thanks everyone for such kind words. I'll try and get the las tthree reports up tonight.

Brick buildings were speed painted, the walls of all the brick buildings took 20 minutes, Slate roofs took about 5 minutes as well as all of the stone walls used. Window trim and doors took Much longer though..
