It was troopers and gaming aids for this Wednesday.
Steve finally managed to get around to rebasing some troopers, as Steve himself says “A while ago I decided to strip and re-paint some EM4 plastic colonial marines. I also cut away the old guns and bought some replacements.
John L has also been painting troopers in the form of a group of Spetsnaz he actually won in a Zona Alfa competition.
And finally this week Tony F has created for himself some stat trackers for Lord of the Rings.
Tony explains these far better than I could: “I’ve made some gaming aids for Lord of the Rings games; these are stats trackers to record the special abilities of heroes and commanders using small D6. The original was 3D printed and then I’ve made moulds and cast them up in resin. The lettering and army badges are raised to make them easy to paint. I’ve painted some in appropriate colours for each army, and I’ve painted the ‘W’ for Wounds in red to differentiate it from the ‘W’ for Will (the other stats are Might and Fate).”
It will be interesting to see how these work. Tony is still looking at how to add the heroes name to the tracker.
