Finished something at last ....

It's been ages since I've posted, it has been too warm to paint here but I've finally got somethings finished

Last night we dragged our ACW collections out of storage for a run through Sharp Practice 2. I'm told it's been years, this is the first outing under the second edition of the rules and I'm converted to using the chips rather than a card deck. Card decks quickly become a bit tatty with all the handling, chips are so more resilient.

We played the Encounter scenario, in 1864, with the base forces brought up to 100 points, we were quickly in to the swing of it and we took our time with the game. We had a race to the high ground, the Union were fortunate and were able to first onto the Rebel line. Both Rebel groups were badly shot up, whilst their C in C was traumatised by stepping in something smelly.

A lone group of Rebel skirmishers made a break for the Union deployment point, their numbers were depleted by a group racing off after ladies of dubious virtue. At the end of play, A Union victory was declared as they had more troops on table and a higher force morale.

In my last game of Antares, I managed to have my skimmer team crash, Warlord made an objective marker so it seemed like an ideal purchase.


I stocked up on drones, adding Targeters, Batters, Compression and Weapons drones, all in my red Algoryn colour scheme.

Earlier this year Wizkids, in partnership with Wizards of The Coast, released the first wave of their primed plastics for D&D. Wizkids had done a similar deal with Piazo, there is also a Pathfinder range, both ranges are quite interchangeable.
