Four days to Barrage. See http://www.hawks-barrage.org for more information.
The Barrage, two-day gaming convention is only seven days away. Go to www.hawks-barrage.org and sign up now! Don’t miss all the great games. This is a low-key, high-fun annual event.
If you haven’t attended Barrage in the past, you are missing one of the best gaming events of the year. We have over 50 gaming events, two Flames of War tournaments, an ADLG tournament, vendors, on-site food at reasonable prices, and fun, fun, fun.
If you go to www.hawks-barrage.org you can see the listing of events and find directions, information about local hotels, etc.
Recently I posed a picture of a building from Imperial Terrain that my daughter painted. Here is one that I painted this weekend. This is the desert farm building. The cylindrical structure is many to be a communications array of some sort.
In the previous post I showed how we masked a bunch of the building, sprayed it with fleckstone paint, removed the tape, and primed it brown. The doors on this building come out so that they can be opened or closed. They slide in and out very easily.
In previous posts I showed pictures of the clockwork, unicycle cavalry from this line of figures by Joe Corsaro. I also showed the rocket battery. This weekend I completed the 20 infantry and the command group for this female legion.
Joe recently made available the “official” flags, so you can see the standard bearer holding one.
These figures took quite a while. Lots of colors and lots of details.
I painted them in sort of British Napoleonic uniforms, with red blouses and gray skirts. I’m not sure why I painted the helmets black, but the seem to fit with the overall color scheme.
No politics, no kvetching, just a great two days of wargaming!
