Dindrenzi Evolution

I started this Blog with a long-running project to build my first Firestorm Armada model. It was a Dindrenzi Battleship, which I painted up in a rather dour black-green and red paint scheme. Since then, I have experimented with a variety of variations and alternate designs, none of which have quite satisfied me. I thought I'd share some of my experiments, and the process as the most recent entry into how I experiment with war gaming fleet or army design.

Firestorm Armada Battle Report

Starting in 2015, I am working with Brian, from Magnetized to Lead, to produce a series of battle reports, and other commentary for miniatures games. In honor of the impending release of Spartan Games "Return of the Overseers" box set for Firestorm Armada, we inaugurated this effort with that game*. I now bring you my thoughts on our battle of Aquans vs. Directorate.

Our eventual hope is to record these reports. As a first, tiny step, I have edited together a set of slides to document our game. Once you're done here, head on over to Brian's blog and read his thoughts on the battle to get the most rounded perspective possible.

2014 in Review

Phew! Another year down. It's hard to believe I've been at this for three years, and over 100 posts. 2014 was not my most consistent year for painting and posting, but I did hit my goal of averaging at least two posts per month. With any luck, next year they will be a bit more evenly distributed across the calendar.
