Whoops!

The state highways looked a bit cartoonish, what with the too bright colors.  The plan called for a dark stain that would seal the gravel, protect the paint, and tone down those colors.  The plan failed: Those turned out way darker than anticipated.  Looks like they need a few...

Road Construction Ahead

Just two quick shots of the roads in progress.  Looks like the markout crews in the 2050s are as accurate as they are today.  That red dirt looks really, really red, but these are Hawai’i roads; red is the color of most of the rich flatland soil.  So it...

Two For The Road(side)

Slapped together some stands for the billboards.  The ads were designed and printed on a standard printer then glued to each side of a…whatever you call that thick cardstock they use for mounting artwork.  It’s roughly 2mm thick and makes a great backing and decent stands for the billboards....

More Billboards

A couple of billboards ought to help break up the monotony of the autoduel patch of highway.  Keeping this a local affair I whipped up a handful of local kine ads. Things get a little complicated at this point.  Here in Hawaii, the home of your humble blogger, there’s...

Mystery Revealed!

Hope the suspense didn’t kill you.  If it did, then the fact that you’re reading this post is very troubling.    So here are my latest terrain tiles.  Those of you who have been following this blog won’t be surprised to learn that these tiles are destined to become...

New Project – The Suspenseful Post

Ahhh, the sweet, sweet anticipation of a project not yet fully planned, not yet begun, and not yet totally screwed up. Gimme a little time on that third one.  After a bit of fol-de-rol at the hardware store, I managed to get 8 tiles of 12″ by 12″ pressed...

AK-47 Reloaded

Should I put real money down on AK-47?  That’s the question I’ve been asking myself since this past weekend’s test drive.  It took an hour to play the first turn of the game.  Part of that is the process of figuring out rules for the first time.  Part of...

Interlude

This post has nothing to do with miniature wargaming.  You’ve been warned. Big fan of college football here.  I’ve spent the last month whining and bitching and moaning like a little girl over the travesty that is an in-conference bowl game – and a national championship game no less!...

AK-47 Test Drive

Before jumping headlong into the AK-47 Republic game, I put together a basic ‘test drive kit’ using plain cardboard marked up with markers.  A few big irregular chunks for terrain, and me and my son were off to the races. Now that’s budget terrain. The main event featured a People’s...

New Project Time

Coming Soon Eventually Picked up a copy of this fun little ruleset recently.  Tinkering with force selection and terrain needs.  Need to figure out whether or not it can be done cheap and portable. First need to make sure game is worth spending real money on.  Will test drive...
