Hey all!

Well, I have a few updates to the blog!


First off, I've gotten some more Vikings on the table…



Second, I made my son a balsa sand crawler to go with his Micro Machine Star Wars figures…



I give a little tour of the fourth shelf of figures… this time, my French Napoleonic army…



And my son has started playing X-Wing… and he isn't so bad at it!:D


So please come by and take a look!:)

Looks neat!

I especially love the scratch-built, open-topped sand crawler. Very inspired.

Any day you can play games with your child is a good one!

The viking set up looks amazing. Is that a 'permanent' table, landscape-wise I mean?
While the buildings / hut, fields etc. can be changed to suit the game or time period?

Any day you can play games with your child is a good one!
AMEN! If only more did.
Your 'time' is the thing they really want more than anything else.

I see he has already picked up the "Ghost".

Hah! Yeah, he has been watching Rebels, so it is possible that Daddy stopped by Barnes and Noble one day and got it for him. It has been a BIG hit:)

The Viking table isn't permanent… I do a foam underlay for each table and then build on top of that. Everything can be moved around as desired:)
