Packing for Horisont:V and following BS Kickstarter

Once more an update without any miniature work done.. I have of course been following Battle Systems Kickstarter for some nice 28mm terrain. Today they added the "Hulk" add-on essential giving you a Strongholds worth full of stuff, but for single level play only. Apparantly a lot of people were interested in this. It comes with free single level stretch goals as well so you won't feel cheated ;)

And a post should have images - so here is one for the new Hulk add-on :

I must say I find it to be a very long time to wait until may next year to my hands on this.. I have already begun writing more down for my 5150 campaign and am researching spaceship/station layouts to use for the campaign. And with every stretch goal met more stuff is going to rain on me. Wheiii.. I am so loving this :P

I am digging stuff out for Horisont:V as well, and although my own doesn't take much space, I have promised to bring some 15mm terrain for Chain of Command as well as some 15mm scifi miniatures to help test a game a good friend of mine have been working on. 

In about 14 hours from now me and my son will load the car with all the gear and set out to pick up two more conventioners that are going with us in the car. If all goes well, we should arrive late afternoon and be ready to get some gaming done! There are quite a few games that I want to try and of course a lot of chatting with old friends to be done as well..

November update

Nothing much to report for now in the work in progress department..

I made good use of my ships at Viking-Con this year and in about 14 days I will be bringing them to Horisont:V as well.

Next on my workbench is probably my RRtK army that needs finishing as well as some 15mm scifi.. or 28mm scifi as I need both. I got a huge amount of Khurasan scifi before summer and I really want to begin painting those nice dolls.

But I also want to do more 28mm scifi miniatures, especially since I backed this Battle Systems™ Sci-fi Modular Terrain yesterday. I am really looking forward to this and it will fit right into the 5150 campaign I am working on. Originally I was planning to use the terrain from the Deadzone kickstarter for this, but having real interior terrain for spaceships/stations is way better.

I bought into the Stronghold x1 pledge wich without stretchgoals/add-ons will make it possible to build this:

More than sufficient for what I have in mind and since it is modular I can rearrange it as I like.. Way cool... 

That's it for now...hopefully I will soon be havng some kind of WIP post to do.. (and just so you don't think I am doing nothing, I am actually working a lot on getting a RPG site for a homegrown set of rules up and running.. too many hobbies, too little time!)

And finally, welcome to the new followers... it makes me feel warm and fuzzy to have more people here ;)
