Today at Trumpeter Salute 2015 , we played our massive X-Wing game. The rebels were escorting a CR90 across the board, while the glorious Imperials ambushed it and blew it apart. And that's how we won.

Keep forgetting to post to this community. Here is my finished Starline 2500 Romulan Novahawk.
 
Even with my ocular migraine caused headache, I still managed to focus long enough to finish one miniature.

The Romulan Novahawk is done.

Getting ready for running some A Call to Arms: Star Fleet next weekend at Trumpeter Salute in Vancouver. Turns out I have to get two Kzinti ships and one Romulan ship painted for the scenarios I'm running.

I had extra red paint so I started painting all of my remaining Kzinti ships. Plus I got all of my home made drone markers gloss and flat coated.

Great to see. Might have to try +David Bezio​'s rules with my western town terrain.
 
SHOOTIN IRON
Cinematic Wild West miniatures war game

A while back I pulled out my Wild West town and started adding buildings to it.  I recently moved and was playing at the local game store with all new people every night.  I decided I wanted a Wild West miniature game that was super fast to teach and play...and so Shootin Iron was born.


The design concept was an entire game that I could print out on a single 2 sided sheet of paper, laminate, and use at the gaming table to teach the rules, and then for reference during play.  I wanted the game to stay just as tactical and challenging, but I wanted to do away with some of the cliché bells and whistles (like playing cards and poker chips).


To my delight the game went over famously...not only that, but what was intended as a "stepping stone" game became something people saw no reason to "advance away" from.


I decided to clean it up, make the changes and clarifications that came up during play and offer it online.  I'm charging $1 over on the Wargame Vault...not because I expect to make any real money off of it...but I have noticed people "respect" a game more that they have to pay for, and I personally think this one is worth at least giving a good read (especially since it only takes about 15 minutes, ha ha).

Oh great. I plan to spend the morning painting miniatures and end up with an ocular migraine. It's slowly taking over my center of vision. I've never had one of these before, and if +Tracey Woodland​ ​​wasn't here to tell me what it is, I'd be pretty freaked out.

Can barely read what I just typed.

I can't believe how much the funding for Blood Rage has skyrocketed in the last few days. They've just been blowing through the stretch goals several times a day.

Check out Seb's second score in his series inspired by art on deviantART ...
 
Not three days after my first track, I have a second deviantART inspired song. This song, "Wanderer", was inspired by "Journey" by Ninjatic.
(http://ninjatic.deviantart.com/art/Journey-416541131)
This one's a lot different. It's not intended as a generic epic movie soundtrack, but something more specific and personal. I played the entire song on guitar, including the percussion.
Enjoy!

Story
Tagline
"If you don't get at it, when you get to it, you won't get to it 'till you get at it again."
Introduction
I grew up in, and live in the west coast of Canada, on Vancouver Island. I have always had a great desire to create things, and a lifelong love of technology. 

I am not always an early adopter of technology, but have spent over 20 years designing, building, and supporting computer networks as my primary career.

I love music and taught myself synthesizer programming in the early 80's. I can chord my way through a song on keyboards, play bass reasonably well, and am working on my singing.

I have had a love of games since as far back as I can remember and was introduced to Dungeons and Dragons in 1979. I've enjoyed traditional roleplaying games ever since. My first published gaming books came out in 2011: Darwin's World for the Savage Worlds rules system (a conversion of the original d20 setting)
Bragging rights
Married twice, four kids, two cats. Built a recording studio in my garage (including the garage). Made LavaLand (see links). Won Geek & Sundry's Tabletop Wired Geekdad Video Contest (See links).
