Last weekend, I took the daughter to the local store for painting club, a group of painters who get together and paint (as the name suggests). It had been a while since she had shown any interest in painting her Blood Angels, so I was happy when she asked to go.
I worked on some of my new Axis models for Dust Warfare. Most of my models wear heavy armor, and I worked on the cloth parts of their uniforms. I spent most of the time working on the camo scheme of the Sturmpioniere.
I met GeekProtem last night on the east side of Indy at Saltire Games for my first game of Dust Warfare. I had never been there before, so I had a look around while I waited for my opponent to arrive. The store is laid out very nicely, with a lot of product displayed in a relatively small space. They may have the widest variety of miniatures games in the city. The standards from GW and Privateer Press were there, but they also carry Dust Tactics/Warfare, Mech Warrior, Infinity, Warpath, Spartan Games, and MERCS. There may have been more, but I can't remember. They also have several separate gaming rooms with plenty of space for all sorts of gamers. I appreciate that.
We set up a small 4x4 table and got started. The mission that we played was essentially Kill Points in 40k terms. The game was a lot of fun, but I found myself over-thinking a lot of things. Most of your actions are pretty intuitive. For the most part, if you want your unit to do something, they can do it as long as they are not suppressed (or pinned in 40k).
