I ran a game of Combat Storm at Little Wars on Saturday, it was three hours of non stop shooting and tanks blowing up. Plus, it was the only game there where things actually moved on the tabletop. YEAH THAT"S RIGHT!!!! I've never been to a Historical Con, I mostly dig sci-fi but here is one thing I learned: now I see why Historical Miniatures players are so picky about the accuracy of the colors on thier figs...those minis are going to be on the table a looooooooong time....what does a turn take, 4 hours or somethin'? A table next to mine had a bunch of micro armor tanks fighting in the desert, and 4 hours later they were still on the far sides of the table, I guess all the tanks ran out of gas and ammo...just messin' around History guys!

I took some old plastic car mats that are dark tan in color and cut them up. The buildings can sit on top of them and not only do you have instant city blocks but instant streets as well! I'll use these in my Combat Storm games at Little Wars tommorrow (Sat.) at 3:00 and 7:00 pm

I probably won't watch the game, I find it hard to watch TV for long periods of time, plus while I enjoy football, I haven't really been following it. But today I'm working on these styrofoam glider planes I found at the dollar store, I'm going to use them as objectives in my Combat Storm games...
