Many years ago, there was an article describing games where the players were able to put the unit on the table if it was painted (historical opponents).
It was amusing to read the lengths each players went to.

Are there situations where an evenings game, it trumped by a new addition or revelation?

Sometimes players in our group will call for air support, and the host usually reponds with "if you got the model, you can put it on the table"- well you know what happened next game.

It also explains why I kept a small grappling hook and rope in my box of dice,for when we play 28mm games. This is a left over from my D&D days. It came in really useful in a LOTR game when my dwarf was trying to batter a door of a keep down.

We do it all the time with 15mm fantasy gaming. The look on my friend's face when my Arabs showed up with a couple sections of flying carpet mounted archers was priceless.

since then there have been; exploding mushrooms, giants, dragons, various engines, gyrocopters, bee mounted knights, and lots of other crazy goodness.

We usually play the opposite way: if it's not painted, it can't be put on the table.

I once painted a couple of micro scale supply trucks (and completed Striker designs for them) so that my troops could benefit from a got-a-hot-meal morale rule. (Yes, Striker includes statistics for a field kitchen, which fit easily in one of the huge trucks.)
