DIY Asteroids for X-Wing or Battlefleet Gothic

Here's a few asteroids I put together very quickly (and cheaply) for use with X-Wing, Battlefleet Gothic or any other space game you play:
This bag of lava rocks cost about $5 at Home Depot.  I only used a few, so  you could create an entire asteroid field if you wished!

Warmaster Paper Counters for American War of Independence (AWI)

Per my last post, Warmaster has provided me with some fun hours over the last months.  But with Christmas coming, my mind is drawn away from elves and dwarves and towards the brave men of 1777 who encamped at Valley Forge en route to liberating the New World from the yoke of Monarchy.

Damn, these guys look cold.

Warmaster Paper Counters

Out of print, but still available via the Interwebs.

Though I've not been blogging much about it, I've gotten into Games Workshop's (oop) Warmaster quite a bit recently.  If you've not looked into it, Rick's Warmaster is the place to start.  It's got the rules and lots of articles and variants up on line.  Basically everything you need but the 10mm fantasy minis.

Good news is that there are no Line of Sight issues with respect to hight or terrain, so while minis are preferable, paper counters work just fine for trying out the game.  The base size is 20mm X 40mm, and there a few folks out there who've published their own paper counters.

Pink Panther

Since I had two skaven ogres for the Mordheim warband my son painted up, I kept the second one for myself.  Turned out a bit pink . . . like a panther!

Mordheim Skaven Warband

So, my son (14yrs) decided to paint up my Mordheim warband.  Without my permission.  All's good though, 'cause he did a great job.  Bit of a touch-up from the old man (couldn't help myself) but all credit to the boy!

Back with Rogue Trader Harlequins

I've been a bit tuckered out after my time travel exploits, but have recently picked up the brush again. Thought I'd share a few items fresh from Ye Olde Workbench.

First up, Rogue Trader Harlequins:
