Well I have been away from the world for a spell, to get back in to the swing of things! Here is some interesting things I saw on my trip to Sweden and Finland! I went for
Worldcon 2017 in Helsinki.
(And yes I am cosplaying Finland from The web comic “Scandinavia and the World”!)
Found this game store in the dealers room selling GW and custom Warhammer game supplies, this fabulous custom Warlord Traitor Titan of an unknown legion was very impressive. They also were selling some painted Forge World Ork war machines.
I would have loved to buy this ork battle wagon, but the transporting it home presented a problem so I passed on it. I do really love the design of this battle Wagon it’s my favorite!
Part of my trip I was in Sweden,
and I had a some spare time so I went to the Stockholm GW store and they had this really well executed Shadow War terrain layout! What I particularly liked about it was that
They sawed its upright struts in half to make a descending Walkway
I wish I had taken a photo from the back but the walkway does go all the way to the ground. I may do something similar with my SW terrain! 😀
I made a travel Warhammer 40K magnetic paper hammer board out of a small magnetic dry erase board. And some printed epic scale Space Marines from a paper hammer game site! I did this because I was traveling for a month and my trip started a few weeks after 8th dropped and I was not going to go that long without a way too play 8th ed (which I love by the way GW finally fixed 40k it’s fun again!!! 😀
I just brought the index
Imperium 1 book,
the compact rules printed copy of 8th you get when you preorder the game , My phone had a dice rolling app and I had a pencil and a note book and I was all set I did a little covering of inches to hexes for moving and shooting and Wallah a travel 40k game! Oh and to make it easier to move the units the army’s were printed on 100bl lazer card stock then mounted to sticky back fridge magnets. 🙂
And I used the epic 40k 2nd ed objective markets for terrain and objectives! The main reason I made this tiny hammer 40k was the 10 hour plane flight to Sweden and then 10 hrs on the way back home, and any down time I had on the trip. The board is the same dimensions as the pull down tray so it sat perfectly in front of me, in my plane set and it fit perfectly in my back pack
In the space designed for you laptop computer. All in all I had a good trip and did some gaming and a fare amount of drinking in both Sweden and Finland!
Well on That note Cheers all and as the Canadians say “Keep your stick on the Ice”! Till next time!
