Confrontation is one of my all time favourite games, simple as that, I love it. A small skirmish game with a huge range of amazing figures and plenty of factions to choose from.
After a couple of years of speculation, the Confrontation Kickstarter has arrived. I was looking forward to picking up a new faction to show my support in getting this game back out there. This Kickstarter is bound to make some serious money.
So here it is, one pledge level of UK£280 to get a big box of everything.
Unfortunately I already have a lot of what is in there so I will pass. Apart from the fact that it is UK£280 tied up in something you won’t even see for 2 years. And it is a new company with zero track record, I think I will pass.
And it seems the models will be made from pvc plastic which is truly rubbish so I will definitely pass.
Oh, and it will not ship until the end of 2019 so I will definitely pass. Kickstarters of this scale are usually late as well, so it will be well into 2020 before there is any chance of seeing anything, so I will definitely pass. I think I have made my mind up.
I will stick with my lovely old lead models, of which I have a few, and a few still unpainted, two whole forces but don’t tell anyone.
If you want some, go check out eBay for a few.
Yesterday was Salute at the Excel in London, the biggest UK wargames show of the year. Once again we headed down, this year there really was not much I was intending to buy. But then again I always say that…
As it is the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War, there were plenty of period exhibits, including this 1:1 scale WW1 tank with some very realistic weathering.
Around the show, there were simply loads of amazing looking demo games and displays, the sci-fi complex below was particularly impressive and I may have to “borrow” some of the ideas, like the red creature vats…
The ship below was impressive, the hull was apparently made from tomato puree tubes, quite a lot of them. I can’t help but wonder what became of all the tomato puree, perhaps a very large spaghetti bolognese.
I thought I was keeping my purchases under control, but I still managed to buy lots of small resin terrain bits, a couple of Infinity Motorbikes for Rogue Stars, four boxes of Warmachine models that I will use in my Steam Wars games and some Bob Olley sculpted Dwarf Cavalry from Macrocosm Miniatures.
I was also quite pleased to see some of my MDF designs on the Product For Wargamers stand, a few of which actually sold. The most popular was the industrial towers around a Pringles tube with the new landing pad section that joins two together.
It has been nearly a week since the MotoGP race in Argentina which one could say was quite eventful.
I think I can say I have never seen a race like it. It is not over yet, the Rossi/Marquez feud is back to boiling point. The rest of the year will be…interesting.
To say that I have been busy creating lots of MDF designs would be an understatement.
Lots to put together and so little time.
I have added double doors to the ground floor of my multi-level building, looking pretty good!
