Warhammer 40k on a Sunday

For those of you who read my blog, you may have noticed that my posts have trailed off a bit.  The problem is (and its a good problem to have) that I'm gaming too much.

I run my LL/1st Ed Castle of the Mad Archmage game for 7 players (!) every two weeks on Wednesday nights.  Lately, I've even gotten back into 40k.

Here's a shot of the table from yesterday.

My grandson Matt and his dad heard about a 40k game I played in a few weeks ago.  Matt got all excited to see my Space Marine army (his dad has one too) and he wanted to play.

I took a bit of time on Saturday to mock up the game table.  Lowe's will cut a sheet of plywood (in this case OSB) into strips if you ask.  I bought a quart of mis-mixed latex paint and then I spray painted camouflage over the top in 4 colors.

I made a few terrain pieces from some plastic tubs, a couple ice cube trays, some foam packing and a couple cardboard boxes.  We even used some papercraft terrain I had lying around.

The game was 1000 points on a side, and I'm proud to say that I won... barely.  One more turn and I was hosed.  :)

Anyway, it's really hard to post when you're having so much fun playing!
