Got another couple games in. I am really liking this game.

Good stuff. Really like the tables.

This might go on my Christmas list!

Great looking games!

Did the clouds have any game effect?

Yeah, firing through clouds gave the defender +1 agility die and if you started your movement with any part of your base in the cloud you could only use white maneuvers unless you were already stressed then only green.

Love that refinery scenario – where did you get the refinery models?

I raided my bits box, the refineries are scratch built.

Nice terrain – especially the use of the clear plastic bottles as foundations. Nifty idea, that.

Wow that is just inspiring. I have only gotten a couple of games in but it is fun and your terrain makes me want to get to work making stuff.

Nice ideas! Glad I can steal them. How did you do your asteroids?

It's a foam that's the same consistency as furniture foam but it's a dark gray. I spray it black, little drybrushing and then I hit it with a layer of silver glitter paint….that belongs to my wife, not me.

There use to be something called high density Ethafoam polyethylene we use to use as frame for breaching charges. I have used it to make hills before and it would look the part. Very similar to the look you have now. Do not know where to get it locally however.

Yeah, that looks very similar. I'm very luck in that my father in law works for a laboratory and brings home big blocks of the stuff that they get in shipments.
