GenCon is just around the corner and the T-shirt design has been released (http://community.gencon.com/forums/t/25383.aspx?PageIndex=6). It’s always good to see lady soldiers get some face-time in the iron kingdoms.
Dave Graffam (http://www.davesgames.net/) is one heck of a designer. In his site you can find paper terrain designed by him and some of them are absolutely fabulous. I recommend building them using cardboard though. Even though lifespan of such terrains are known to be short, you’d still want to make it last as long as possible as I doubt you’d want to re-make this over and over again.
Maelstrom ETC 2011
Maelstrom Games, one of the world’s biggest online retailer for tabletop wargaming, recently held a tournament called ETC 2011 (http://privateerpressforums.com/showthread.php?69904-Maelstrom-ETC-2011). Team Octopii lost out the first spot by a whisker but apparently they fought through some really tough teams. Sadly, they didn’t meet the German team who won this even throughout the tournament (meeting them could push Team Octopii to top spot).
What caught my eye (besides that buxom man-o-war pilot) was the papercraft terrain from dave graffam. Do you agree in using papercraft terrain? Is it worth the hassle to assemble them, only for it to have a short life span?
