This blog will will contain my rather pedantic ramblings on my experiences within the miniature war gaming hobby. There will be informative how-to’s, thrilling battle reports and thought provoking editorials. I fully expect that history will one day view the contents of this blog on par with Homer’s Illiad or Newton’s Principalia. Or it's a complete waste of time.
Ernie put on a fantastic 28mm Alien Invasion game tonight that had the real feel of XCOM in miniature. The table was amazing and the game pitted local cops, the DEA, the US army, a mysterious government agency and local criminals against Aliens who had crash landed and were awaiting rescue. Oh yeah, the Aliens had all sorts of crazy weapons including a virus gun that would turn humans into Zombies. In other words the game was a blast. I just post a few pictures as Ernie will be doing one of his "Table Fable" posts about the game.
Here's a picture of the Alien mothership coming in the pick up the stranded crew.
Another shot showing the table - I loved the trailer park. Why do strange things always seem to happen near trailer parks?
I had command of the local police and county SWAT. Here's a pick of one brave officer returning to the fray after escorting some civilians to safety. It's a pretty cool picture.
Oh yes, the mother ship had a full interior. The humans managed to win the game as the guys in the yellow suits cut a hole in the top of the mothership and allowed my county SWAT team to get in and wipe out the Aliens after a few rounds of fighting. Ernie has amazing game creation talents.
