It is, for those of you who don’t know, a slightly more complicated version of playing Battletech. And by slightly, I mean tons more complicated. Here’s a recordContinue reading “Teaching the Next Generation”

Quick Painting Update: Fortress-class Dropship

Here we are with another painting update! Now that I am done with the priming, it’s now time to throw on some paint! As you’ll soon see, I have come across a problem… You can see brush strokes. I mean, this is generally solved in one of two ways: 1) multiple coats, or 2) sprayContinue reading “Quick Painting Update: Fortress-class Dropship”

Playing Some Alpha Strike

Hello, Dear Readers! Sorry I didn’t get a post in yesterday, but I was having a bad day and needed an outlet, so I went out for Alpha Strike night at my local game store. Here are some photos!

I mean,Continue reading “Quick Paining Update: I GOT TO PAINT!!”
