"If you build it, they will come..."

I finally finished something, and this is a great way to start the new year!  Getting the extra day off and relieving stress with a paintbrush and hot-glue gun paid off and allowed me to finish this demo board.  You don't remember?

Around Thanksgiving (I think), I promised that I was building a demo board for my part-time gig running a game club.  This board was promised to be quick-and-easy, but nothing spectacular (keep with me here) and would serve the purpose.  I even showed the start of the building of this stuff.

Then, a few weeks ago, I whined about my full-time work schedule getting in my way and made excuses.  Well, no more excuses.  I tossed some quick drybrushing down and a couple of washes and made them look like the citysquare baseboard.  Then, wanting this to be temporary (because I'll need the terrain to make a full cityfight board in the future), I put some beading of hot-glue on the terrain the slapped it down.

It ain't pretty, but it's done and it'll work well.

In addition, the small forces are set up to be a great back-and-forth battle.  It involves a Combat squad and Dreadnought against a small squad each of Raptors and Possessed.

The objective is to control the statue at the end of the fourth turn.  Whoever has a unit within 3" of the base will win the game, and a draw is possible.


Now I plan to recruit some gamers and kick this year off with more battles all the time!  More to come on that later...

As always, Happy Gaming
