My only complaint with the river is there is no 90 degree bends so you are basically left with a straight run.

We have fun throwing mechanicum pipes nearby and blaming the river on them.

You've filled that map out with terrain really well. Everything looks like it should be there.

Ok, well, not the tiny tanks and the Chaos Familiar crew, but we can forgive that.

Well that was kind of the point

When i got the mat i started sourcing much of the terrain that would fit the theme and layout so it would look like it fits.

the gale force 9 mesa bits do double duty on my desert mat, but my other mats i have done something comparable. - with much of the terrain interchangeable between several of the mats.

Mat themes i have in mousepad material-
6X4s-
.dense urban(war torn)
.city streets
.semi urban
.farm lands
.mars factory
.ocean(for victory at sea)

4X4s
.desert
.cobblestone city ruins
.high tech city
.tau city
.X2 space mats(to fill the full 8ft table)
.city center-epic/15mm
.city streets-epic/15mm

Odd size-
.monstpocalypse mat

They add so much to the look of the table for the many different games i play on them i have forgotten what life was like before.

I've done a similar thing, although that generally boils down to me building tons and tons of Sector Mechanicus stuff.

I have the mat in your pics plus Gamemat.eu's other Mars mat, and those GF9 bits work wonders on there. For my non-Martian desert map I've got Gamemat.eu's desert stuff. Use a bunch of GF9 stuff along with Gamemat.eu's hills for greener terrain.

I've managed to pick up a bunch of mats from Gamemat.eu:

6x4 Highlands of War
6x4 Martian
6x4 Martian Factory
6x4 Desert (original one, as you can see in the link above)
6x4 Fallout Zone (ruined city)/Imperial Base
6x4 Quarantine Zone (generic city)/Wasteland
6x4 Desert (their new one)/Lost World (new Eldar-y jungle one)
4x4 Tri-City (great generic metal plating, fantastic for Necromunda, used here)
4x4 Chem Zone (another one that's good for Necromunda)

They're the reason I don't want to mount my terrain (ruins and stuff) on their own bases. Covers up too much the nice table underneath.

i sourced my mats from several companies mostly based on appearance or what the FLG had in stock when i started buying them.

Including products from tablewar, frontline gaming, gamemateu and Pworks wargames

So despite moving home and being back with my gaming group COVID has really messed with my gaming. We've been trying to fill the gap with virtual painting nights (which are fine, anything is better then nothing) but I've been really itching to actually play.

So I went ahead and set up a solo game. I've been painting up dwarf and goblin miniatures sense 2016 with the plan to eventually run the 4 game Bugman's Lament campaign. I was never into WHFB so the plan was to use the always fun Dragon Rampant rules and adjust the campaign accordingly.

I figured a solo game would be a good chance to test the unit profiles I'd put together and see how they played.

I played a 24 point game using one of the scenarios out of Neil Thomas's One Hour War games. The goblins are raiding dwarf land and need to break through the village to sack the lands beyond.

The dwarfs received a victory point for every goblin unit destroyed and the goblins received a point for every unit that broke through the defenses.

Playing solo, while its never as fun as a game with a friend, was pretty great. The scenario lent itself to the two sides making different choices and I had a great time.

The dwarfs pulled off a close win 3-2.

Gloomspite vs khorne rematch. Center was too weak, threw away boss too easily, he got double turn on 3rd which hurt and when he got prio still for round wrapped up. 13-15 already, he is getting 6 or 7 points bare minimum and i can get 5, maybe 6 at best. That is best i could do period and that requires some serious bad luck by him.

New game. KoW 2nd edition again. 1500 points per side

The beasts (The Heard) take on the Undead this time.

The two sides line up:


The battle underway.


After a bad initial start, the beasts started to claw back. Causing large casualities to the Undead. But in the end, the Undead held the most objectives.

A couple fun ones today

Trying out a 50 point sorcha assault list for my khador VS crucible guard.



I managed to get first charge off with the devastator thanks to bounding charge and the gun carriage both of which performed incredibly well for a change.



Next up was a demo of the best game GW has ever made-
thats right some battlefleet gothic. 1,500 points

i borrowed the FLGS display fleet (imperial navy) and let the other player use a mix of some of my chaos and a store ship.

It was a brutal slug match

Both sides had an admiral with re-rolls

Imperial side-
.retribution-battleship
.mars-battlecruiser
.X2 dominator-cruiser
.gothic-cruiser

Chaos side-khorne themed fleet
.the conqueror (angrons battleship from the great crusade)
.styx heavy (carrier) cruiser
.X3 slaughter class cruisers

This year, to honor the Super Bowl my daughter and I sat down and played a game of Blood Bowl. She prefers to play using the video game version as it does most of the work for you! However, this time I insisted on using the miniatures I had painted up. She relented since it was for the Super Bowl and because it had been over a year since we played with the Minis. It had been so long, this was the first time the Lustria Revenge (Lizardmen) actually touched the pitch! In addition, I used one of the alternate game boards, this time the "winter" themed board.

First game of 40k this year(various reasons kept tuesday busy). Sisters vs very tame wolf list and when i went first blowing flyer that went nuclear it came to easy win. Bad scenario for him too.

After my turn 3 we called. 29-0, i get scramblers next. He might get 3 from mental integration but that would be literally all he gets besides 10 for painted

Felt dirty with power level difference

I played a game last night, dueling my brother in Titanomachina over Tabletop Simulator. As you can see in the picture I got brutally murdered 22-4 for a knock-out in round 11. The ending was particularly grisly where I, as Green, pushed Pink away twice in a round and lost my right arm as a result.



In the three games I've played in the past couple of weeks I've had a macro laser shoved up my Jump Jets as Blue, and lost by ring-out, then made sure I backed into an alley as Pink to protect my flank and couldn't get out of said alley (should have gone through the buildings, but thought I could push my way past my opponent). In this most recent game I engaged Pink in the middle of the board as Green and got my face caved in, killing two crew, and even destroying my turret. Tonight I think I'll try for Rhea's regent-configuration and see if maximizing my ability to push my opponent around helps any.

My Balin's dwarves vs moria goblins.

Deliberately put in plenty of rocks to give goblin climb rule chance to be used and it worked. Dwarves fought hard on narrow(3 model wide) section. Had wound rolls been kinder...meanwhile part of goblins climbed over hill surrounding dwarves which proved their undoing.

Tried out the Yellow (Rhea) last night and almost had it, losing the game 38-37. It came down to how many buildings we each had - I went up to 37 from 35 initially set up, he went down to 33 from 34 set up, then I lost 5 VPs worth of systems: armour on my front and right sides, my laser battery, and its sponson. Most of the game I managed to push Green around but basically only scuffed his armour, and he finally managed to get a clear shot with his Master crew operating a fully powered Rocket Pod. The resulting high explosive boom destroyed two extra armour systems and my laser battery.



We mucked around with the board during a post-game discussion so I noticed I'd erased the line through the Extra Armour 3 on my Titan's front indicating the system was destroyed.

Another solo game of Dragon Rampant using a scenario out of One Hour War Games. Dwarfs held the hill and the goblins wanted to take it away. Terrain definitely favored the dwarfs and the goblins had a hard time making it over the farm fields and through the village. The dwarf crossbow were able to command the road and the rangers crowded out the approaches to the village. The goblins couldn't seem to get anything going and kept failing crucial activations and the dwarfs held firm and wouldn't be budged, even after getting hit by the wolf riders.

Fun game again.Still tweaking the unit profiles as I move forward.

A few tonight

First off i was running a demo game of classic victory at sea-



Then i did a large game of our hybrid 5th ed 40K (2,700 points)

Dusted off my old dark angels for a spin (the master of the ravenwing speeder is standing in as a normal tornado to fill points) using the 6th ed codex

Spoiler:


I was fighting chaos of course...servants of the blood god from the 3.5 codex

Spoiler:


My dice absolutely hated me this game, it was all pretty much over by turn 3
