It was another fun event for Mary Beth and her students. This year we had two special guest a new born and am 8 month baby. I got to babysit the 8th month old, young master Ignacio III, who I promptly brought down to the game table to try and teach gaming to. You can never start them too young.
If anyone's interested, I could schedule a gaming event at the house next year in April and "accidentally" have it coincide with the Spring Women's Dental Student event. It's not a half bad event to attend.

Pictured at left is the massive model of a US Land Ironclad - it weights almost 5 lbs and is a real beast. I was lucky enough to play test the Land Iron Clad rules (using a mock up) and they were a blast!!!! It was fun to have something to take the fight directly to the Martians. Sadly, the first Land ironclad destroyed by the Martians was under my command.....
I'm planning to paint mine with a more naval theme - battleship grey and such. My gaming buddy, Mike, is thinking about using a WW1 dazzle camo pattern. I'm getting very excited about this game.
Limited pre-orders just went live of the Alien Dungeon website - don't be left out!

All of the models, except the Sherman, are Battlefront.
"Dirty"Jon Baber's tutorial on german camo using a stippling painting technique - check out the tutorial here - it's worth the time. It's much better than my previous German camo efforts which likely means some re-painting of previous units is in my near future.

If any of you have an engineering or technical bent, you should consider getting involved / mentoring a team. You can find out more from the FIRST robotics website. I should warn you, it's a bit addictive! FIRST has a great phrase to describe the experience - "It's the hardest fun you'll ever have"
