One of the things I did was dig deep in the memory banks to relocate American Flagg by Howard Chaykin. It occurs to me that this could be another dystopian future setting to recreate with miniatures.Although I'm not sure where to find the very 80's shoulder pad aesthetic.
Of course Vol 2 arrived before Vol 1, so I'm going to have to wait to get reading.
In the boy playing games news, my little one broke out X-wing and had three or four rousing games. We then went out and bought the YT - 2400 with a Barnes & Noble 20% off coupon. I was shooting for the Millenium Falcon, but they didn't have one.
I just gave him some bare bones of fire arcs and how to read the dice and use the measuring sticks. He then set up all the ships and had fun. I thought that letting him enjoy the game was better than trying to play "by the rules". It would be nice to play together, but this way worked a lot better than the last few times we played. Hopefully we can build upon success and get in a game together.
I'm pretty deep into the Talomir battle, but I ran down the battery in the camera. We should have it wrapped up soon.
I also had a chat with Stevo and we may be inspiring each other to paint. It's probably more like him holding me accountable for painting my Orc army for Oldhammer USA. Of course I have to chat with him some more about it. But I'm putting it out there to hold my feet to the fire a little.
