Latest finds

Just love going to dollar stores. At this time of year they have to be the most optimistic place to be, as they already have their spring stuff on the shelves. Makes one almost think that winter will eventually end.

This trip to the Dollar Tree store had less to do with spring, but has certainly given me some stuff for my adventures in Africa and other parts of the world.

Venice un-boxing

So TT Combat were nice enough to have a free shipping deal, so I was compelled to buy something that I have long coveted, Venice! The parcel arrived this week right in the middle of my Egyptian preparations for a Tomb of the Serpent game day this coming weekend. So despite having a long list of stuff to get ready for the weekend, I cracked open the Venice box and promptly assembled some of the plaza boards.

By request

So a couple of requests for information, a picture covers so much more.
So details on a bridge, and info on 3D paint.

First up the bridge used in a recent game

New finds for 2018

First post of the new year and first post in a while, sorry about that.

Found these self adhesive tiles in Dollarama store.
The hexes are 1" wide.
The rectangles are 1" x 2".

They are a little puffy and a little shiny but I do hope to dull them down a bit.
I have been meaning to play the old Gladiator board game for old time sake, but with 28mm figures. These hex sheets should do the trick for a quick battlefield.

As for the rectangle stuff, I am thinking they will work for floor tiles in some Egyptian ruins that I am building for a soon to be played Pulp Alley campaign of Tomb of the Serpent.

Mechanical men

This weeks output, most items were just started last week, but had been kicking around the house for a few years. I am kind of surprised at how little time it has taken to get this stuff done once started, and a little disappointed with myself that it took so long to get going on this.

I have no delusions about the longevity of this project (I direct you to the name of this blog) but I am keen to see how much I can get done before I become distracted by another project. I do know that I will be gearing up for a Pulp Alley campaign in the new year, either Lemuria or the tomb.

Time to end this rambling with some pictures.
