The Road To Adepticon: Making Terrain!

An Example of Table Coverage, about 25%
SeerK here once again with a Schaumburg Prime Offensive Update.  Adepticon is only 30 days away!  With that in mind The WayGate staff is hard at work making schedules, Painting models and Making Terrain.  I thought I would give people a little taste of the terrain we will be using at the tournament.  This will give you an idea of what to expect so you can practice with similar terrain.

We will be using 3D terrain at Adepticon.  Asteroid fields, Debris Fields, Gas Clouds and Planetoids are all on the menu.  The fields sizes vary and their boarders are clearly defined.  We use Craft Foam cut out into various shapes to denote the boundaries of the Field.  This allows you to clearly see where the field begins and ends and makes it much easier to tell if your line of sight is obscured.

Happy Valentine's Day!

If all the hearts and flowers are making you a little sick, remember the reason for the season. Capital punishment, Roman-style.

An excerpt from the link below:
"When Valentine's actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death. Valentine was arrested and dragged before the Prefect of Rome, who condemned him to be beaten to death with clubs and to have his head cut off. The sentence was carried out on February 14, on or about the year 270."

Spartan Games Picks Up Halo!

So if you are not signed up for Spartan Games news letter, you probably did not see the big announcement today.  Spartan games has teamed up with Microsoft and will be producing a Spaceship combat game based on The hit console game Halo.  Not only that but they will also be doing a ground combat game.

This is pretty big news as it is Spartans first joint venture and their first Licensed IP game.  I am on the fence about it, but I ma hopeful this brings in the capital Spartan needs to really expand and ramp up and consolidate their core games systems.  The one we know and love and brought them to where they are now.
