Kickstarter: Secret Weapon Miniatures' Tablescapes.

If you're a fan of tabletop gaming of any kind (and, if you're not, I'm curious as to what you're doing here), I've got a Kickstarter project that you ought to get behind.

These Tablescapes are 'an injection molded plastic 12x12" tile set designed to give tabletop gamers themed gaming environments that are fully compatible with new and existing terrain and basing options from Secret Weapon Miniatures.'

From what they've posted on their Facebook page, it sounds like they're also mindful of making these compatible with Games Workshop's 'Realm of Battle' tiles -- at a fraction of the cost.

They are initially offering "Scrap Yard" tiles, which don't really fit the fantasy environment (large rubber tires will be hard to explain in the deep, dark Drakwald forest), but their stretch will include themed tiles like "Urban Streets," "'Generic' Fields," "Ruined Temple," "Trench Works," "Lost Desert" and more.

2013 Pinewood Derby Champion!

Congrats to my eldest son, Jacob, on winning his Pinewood Derby last night.

Not only was he the top finisher in the Boys division, he also won the Overall -- by, literally, on hundredth of a second -- and finished the night undefeated. He has a couple of nice, new trophies to add to his shelf.

( With that concluded, we now return to our regularly scheduled Warhammer hobby ... )

Pinewood Derby Week!

That's right, readers, it's that time of year again. For the past two weeks, I've put away the sculpting tools and Green Stuff and stepped away from the Warhammer world to test my skills in engineering, to build the fastest 5oz. wooden car possible. Thankfully, the time for the race is fast approaching and, tomorrow night, we can sweep up the saw dust and put away the plastic wheels and sandpaper and tungsten weights for another season.
