A recent acquisition

On vacation earlier this month, I managed to visit a couple of game stores in between the sightseeing.  I picked up a whole bunch of fantasy miniatures (more on those soon), but only a single spaceship model.
As you can see, it's a Wagon Wheel frigate from Aerotech, the spaceship game that's a companion to Battletech.  As with most of my spaceship purchases, I probably will end up using this model as something else--the circular sections that rotate for gravity make me think this would make a nice antiquated passenger liner or colony ship.  Any suggestions on a paint scheme?

GuadaComaCon update

Just a reminder that GuadaComaCon will take place Saturday, August 17.  Admission is FREE--that's right, no cost--for all-day gaming at the New Braunfels Convention Center.

Some of the games on the schedule include Star Navy, Song of Blades & Heroes, a Hordes of the Things tournament, Axles & Alloys (a car-to-car combat game based on Full Thrust rules), either a Battle of Hoth or a battle of Helm's Deep game, and more.

There's still game slots available, so if you're interested in running something, let me know. And remember, it's FREE!

The return of OGRE minis

In case you haven't heard, OGRE miniatures are back in production.  Still no release of the ginormous Designer's Edition of the sci-fi tank combat game, but Steve Jackson Games has the models for the various OGRE/GEV units back in stock.  Grey Cat Studios is doing the casting.

While I have more than enough minis in my collection, I'm sure folks who missed out the first time around will want to pick up some more of these figures.
