CanCon 2019

I made the trip to CanCon this year. Due to circumstances over which I have no self-control, I missed out on a seat at the Blood Bowl tournament so instead spent time perusing the trade stands and catching up with friends. It was stinking hot...

We had the 2019 Bloggers and Challengers' Catch-up, and it was great to see old mates and put faces to cyber-acquaintances.




I only took a few photos- the highlight for me was some gorgeous jungle terrain being used for some Two Fat Lardies games. I haven't seen anything so realistic.







Hong Kong, December 1941

Epic 40K

Here's my loot- I got some cheap stuff at the bring & buy (brand new 40K 8th edition, it was only $40, they made me buy it) and a bit of MDF, and some hobby supplies.

    1. Thanks for promoting it and press-ganging everyone! We'll all have to catch up for a longer yarn next time.

      Some say they were made from Millsy's camo shorts...

  7. That jungle looks like a staggering amount of work to put together! And it's hard to replicate such a dense environment and still allow room to "play". But this seems to work. Thanks for posting!
