Look forward to the decals *cough*. :)

I just ordered Micro Set and Micro Sol for fixing those. Maybe I'll give it a go next time I have 5 days in a row off (for some reason, I seem to be able to be more productive when knowing I have plenty of time).

How closely should the decals be cut, and how warm should the water for softening them up be? I'm completely new to using decals, and haven't got a clue  ???

I have had my mind on necromancy lately, but look what the mail(wo)man brought me this morning:



I shall play through the Introductory Scenario over the next days/evenings, and I shall, of course, make a report covering my effort.

I never got around to solo-play the intro scenario - BUT I played it with my youngest daughter, Darth Lea.

Brief description of the battle on my blog.



And, today I played some games with Duregar/Ulolkish - the first one was our first go at the JDMG rules.

Also an AAR on my blog.



I REALLY like the way the gameplay of JDMG flows, and I shall create a couple of street gangs from Van Saar and Future Wars minis I bought painted years ago, and I also have a painted Ape gang that I bought back then.

We played the scenario with roles reversed right away.
AAR on the blog!

That Dredd game looks like fun. I like a game played with just three figures that can still be interesting.

Actually, four in this game, but a starting Justice Dept. force using the full rules will be rather small - 2 Street Judges + a Rookie Judge, or 1 Street Judge on Lawmaster + 2 Rookie Judges, and so on...

Been a while, but we played another game of JDMG almost two weeks ago:





A lot more pics on the blog!

I might actually get around to doing those BEFORE our vacation trip to Italy (Venice area) later this year  lol

In the meantime, Duregar/Ulolkish and I have been at it with the Judge Dredd Miniatures Game once more:



First part of the AAR, as usual with a lot of pics, on my blog!

I've heard people say that that game is *similar*ish to Necromunda? I've also heard a lot of good stuff about it. How many minis are needed per side? I might bring my sci-fi stuff to the Attic Attack as well, and would certainly be interested in giving it a try.

It's similar in the way that Frostgrave is similar to Mordheim.

You control a gang/team/small force and pit it against your opponent, Heroes earn xp, and Minions turn into Heroes if they survive 5 fights (i.e. do not roll a 'Dead' result in the post-battle phase when they have been taken OOA during the game).

I have one of the last free sets that were made available by Mongoose, before the printed rulebook, and I am not sure if it comprises all the rules contained in the current edition, but it has plenty of different gangs to choose from, and the rules play very smoothly.

We are experimenting with some house rules in order to make the game action more cinematic, and I think we are nearly there - as the next parts of the AAR should reveal.

Oh, and if you are underdog, you can hire mercenaries (reinforcements, in the case of the Justice Dept.) up to the   difference in team cost (but you have to deduct the cost of those from your earnings from the game, as payment), and, YES, the judges may call on Dredd in dire circumstances.
