No miniatures in this update, but I have had the opportunity to play some games this month. I've posted a game play review of Victory Point Games' Gem Rush on the Boardgame Geek April Solitaire Games On Your Table list here. I also had a chance to play some of Gamelyn Games Tiny Epic Kingdoms and Tiny Epic Defenders, but did not get the chance to write up any After Action Reports or reviews.

What I am most excited about is I have expanded the Two Hour Wargames page with my first installment in the All Things Zombie universe. Lock 'N Load Publishing has collaborated with Two Hour Wargames to port the All Things Zombie miniatures game into a miniatures-compatible board game called All Things Zombie: Reloaded I've started a Campaign called "The Trials of Tanya" and have posted my first AAR/walkthrough. It's a long read, but it is a pretty detailed walkthrough of my first ATZ:R game.

I hope you enjoy the reads!

Wow. Talk about life getting in front of pleasure. 2015 began with the great Pipe Break and Identity Theft Caper (not related to each other) from which we are still recovering from. Add to that completing my son's homeschooling, getting him in college, re-purposing the classroom, and a zillion other drags on my leisure time, and I didn't have a chance to do much painting or gaming last year.

I did manage to go to Texicon 2015 and enjoy myself playing games and watching my son get bitten by the tabletop gaming bug. Painter Shannon Stiltz even talked me into entering my Maelee MicroBabe into the painting competition. I didn't place (big surprise since I didn't know I was competing until about 30 seconds before I submitted my miniature), but it was very rewarding to realize a professional painter thought my work was good enough for a competition. It was equally rewarding to hear the positive feedback from the judges. I'm thinking about giving it an honest go this year.

Other than Texicon, no real gaming this year. Most frustrating.

I've updated the Miniatures page with some Lone Gunman Games' Amazons and Highlander Studio's Zombie Rednecks. I actually finished these in November and December, respectfully, but haven't had time to take photos. I hope you enjoy them!

More zombies from the Two Hour Wargames Indiegogo and Bombshell Miniatures' MicroBabe Set 1.

Hey, these were March's project - and I actually finished them in March! Who'd have thunk it possible?

Finished January's - I mean, February's - project. Being iced into my house helped immensely. Thank goodness for global warming!

I added some pictures to the Miniatures page. Mostly sculpts from Rod Campbell of Highlander Studios and a Civilian Hunters set from Rebel Minis.

Finally finished December's painting project. The Firemen took a lot more time to paint than I expected. Check out the miniatures page to see the latest additions to my zombie apocalypse miniatures. All of the miniatures are available from Rebel Minis.

Putting the finishing touches on my latest set of zombie apocalypse survivors. Four Firefighters left to paint, then I can move on to basing them.

I managed to play a game of Two Hour Wargames' dungeon crawl game 2 Hour Dungeon Crawl over the New Year's break. I've added a Two Hour Wargames page to the blog home page and included an after action report of Wallace's trip into the Orc's Lair.

Bunch of new photos on the Miniatures page. Back in the early summer of 2013 I participated in the Two Hour Wargames "All Things Zombie - Final Fade Out Minis & More" crowd funding campaign. This was only my second crowd funding campaign (the first being the 2012 Steve Jackson Games Ogre Designer's Edition Kickstarter), and I was very pleased with the results. The THW High Rise to Hell scenario book and cards are great additions to the game, and Rod Campbell of Highlander Studios did his usual excellent job of sculpting the miniatures. Now, if I can only figure out the lighting so I can take some decent photos....
