         In this rematch the Brits made a critical mistake with the splitting of their formation.DSCI0065.thumb.JPG.59c4fb847a46e13db289fc1d9b24be6d.JPGDSCI0066.thumb.JPG.6f3ea9ba8af453e2fad521d2417f79f2.JPG The Beaufighter may have massive fire power but is very limited in maneuverability.  I was chasing Hartmann and we dueled until he got in behind my position.DSCI0067.thumb.JPG.e55c3be45eb05adaee79d23333ba171b.JPG  At close range his cannon did me in.  During this time the Beaufighter took on the 190, hitting it repeatedly then switched targets and went after Hartmann and blew him out of the sky.DSCI0068.thumb.JPG.479eeeed1303a9ada30b9e66b0fb5e6a.JPGDSCI0069.thumb.JPG.7478a8a23ddbdd7b6a057d375c289e1a.JPG  Now the Beaufighter and the 190 were going at it. It came down to whom would get into position first.DSCI0070.thumb.JPG.dc553213ff9e3ac969230a8f07be91d4.JPGDSCI0071.thumb.JPG.5b611dc903ae1e83a71c2284724d7dc3.JPGDSCI0072.thumb.JPG.850367c25edf0c4ae083088a345fb167.JPG  It was close but the 190 had the edge by getting in the first shot that gave just enough damage to take down the Beaufighter.DSCI0073.thumb.JPG.431ef6c240dfdf7269c1c3252e2c13d9.JPG

      “The ship was found more than 17,000 feet below the surface, on the floor of the South Pacific Ocean near the Solomon Islands. The USS Hornet is best known for launching the important Doolittle Raid in April of 1942 and its role in winning the Battle of Midway. 
       
      Richard Nowatzki, 95 now, was an 18-year-old gunner on Hornet when enemy planes scored several hits, reports CBS News' Mark Phillips.”

      About
      War Titans is a cooperative game in which 2 to 4 Players face waves of Invaders controlled by the mechanics of the game itself. Every Player acts as the Pilot of a Titan, a powerful combat robot capable of facing the menace of the giant monsters. The aim of the game is to close the Rifts which the monsters are coming from and destroy as many Invaders as possible, trying to avoid flattening out the whole planet in the process!

      Don't miss the adventure, danger or sweet, sweet miniatures. Click the above "Notify me on launch" button now to be notified the instant the Wild Assent campaign goes live!
      As a special thanks to early backers, if you pledge for Wild Assent within the first 72 hours of the campaign, you'll receive Lady Aylwen and the Unicorn (and all of their cardboard goodies) absolutely FREE!
      Wild Assent is a 1-4 player miniatures board game with player-versus-player and solo/cooperative modes. Battle your opponents in the gladiatorial arenas of the Silvestrem in Wild Assent’s skirmish-style Arena mode. Hunt the dangerous creatures of the Wilds, by yourself or with friends, fighting not just for survival, but to keep your expedition alive in the campaign-based Hunt mode. Regardless of the mode you choose, Wild Assent offers tactical and entertaining combat combined with strategic an interesting decisions to make before the miniatures even hit the board.
      Wild Assent is the complete package. It features incredible miniatures, quality cardboard components and engaging gameplay. Its PvP skirmish and solo/cooperative survival modesoffer vastly different play experiences while sharing the same fundamental combat mechanics.
      The core game box for Wild Assent contains everything you need to begin your expedition into the Wilds or to crush your enemies in the gladiatorial arenas of the Silvestrem. No adventure in either realm will be the same as the last as Wild Assent's customization options and deck mechanics ensure replayability for years to come.
      Wild Assent miniatures are made from a HIPS-based material that retains an amazing amount of detail from the original 3D sculpt. Each miniature is produced as a single piece, allowing for more dynamic poses, intricate bases and absolutely zero assembly. 
      A good number of Wild Assent miniatures have already been produced. Molds have been made and we are able to present them to you as mass production models in the video below.
      Wild Assent minis are made in 32mm scale. For those who want to see what it actually means, here are some of the minis shown on size chart below. While Berlyn as a rather short human barely passes 30mm, some of the bigger creatures are easily getting over 50mm in height.
      Prior to campaign launch we sent some Wild Assent production miniatures to King of Average who created a short unboxing video.

      About
      The Tang dynasty was considered the first golden age of the classical and now iconic Chinese gardens. Emperor Xuanzong built the magnificent imperial Garden of the Majestic Clear Lake as an homage of life itself.
      Tang Garden is a Zen-like game that will take you to the first golden age of China, where players will progressively build a garden by creating the landscape, placing the scenery and projecting their vision through vertical panoramas. During the construction, noblemen will visit the garden to admire the surroundings and the way the natural elements coexist in the most breathtaking scenery humankind has ever laid their eyes upon.

      After I started working on my Soviet Russian girls, I soon noticed that I missed some usable terrain.
       
      So it was time for me to start making some.
       
      I checked my stuff and ... unfortunately I didn't have got any usable terrain. But I had some 28mm Warhammer 40k barrels and boxes. So ... what to do with those? ...
       

       

       
      Luckily I am a person full of ideas and dreams and melancholy. So I remembered back in the days when I was young, I played a game called "Blitzkrieg".
       
      "Blitzkrieg" was a lovely game using a lovely graphic engine for displaying things. And they had this wonderful supply depot, which I think would be perfect
       

       

       
      First off I have have to prepare some boxes to later have a good foundation for the blanket.
       

       
      ... which ended in in looking like this:
       

       

       

       

       
      Time to paint!
