One of the green houses has reached 50 Celsius today, and as we don't have automatic watering for the nursery I get to enter this heat to water the plants every few hours or so.
In between fighting off heat exhaustion I have been going over some of my rules and minis and deciding what I want to do with the lead pile.
I have two sets of WW2 plane combat games: CY6! and Bag the Hun, and a good handful of 1/600 planes to go with them. I intend to keep both sets of rules and slowly work up the number of planes to what I want.
At the moment I have enough planes to play small games with a bit of variation on the plane types, but I would like to get some more to allow for a lot of variation.
I intend to focus more on Bag the Hun, as I think I can come up with a simple solo variation on the game that wont involve me having to plot the enemy movement.
If I can do this, I will post my idea on the blog for others to try out.
Expect a photo of my planes soonish.
On the Net
I also revisited a site I learnt about a few weeks ago called MiniWars. This site has a map showing players from around the world that have registered with the site and what games they play.
I was taking another look at it today, and either there is a glitch in the map, or a number of people have deleted their profile from the site. A week ago there were about eight+ Aussies registered on the site, now there are only two, including myself.
|I don't even live the part of Australia the number indicates!|
For some reason Europe is only showing four players, and not from anywhere else in the world. I am hoping it is a glitch.
For those interested in checking out the site, you can follow this link: Wargame Player Finder
Items for Sale
I have some Defiance games Marines and Bugs for sale if anyone is interested. The price is $60AUD plus postage for both - given that one box is $40AUD from the only place I can find selling them, I figure this is a reasonable price for figures that are almost New In Box:
I have started making one bug, but didn't finish it, and the marines haven't been touched at all - all neatly packed in the box the way they arrived.
I did get some extras as well that will be include in any sale.
If anyone is interested in them please let me know - I am happy to accept paypal for payment or even some swaps if you have something I am after.
More items up for sale soon...
