First Dux AAR and a new table!

So we finally had our first game of Dux! Yeah! It was a fast and furious raid on a church in which almost the whole of the Saxon hearth guard bit the dust... ouch!

There are more pictures and a more detailed write up here: http://jannersjaunt.blogspot.se/2013/01/first-blood.html

In all honesty I didn't really think about what I was doing. I just moved the pieces around like when you're trying out a new gadget and pushing all the buttons. I guess getting the numerical advantage is what this game is all about.

Looking forward to play some more!



Also for Dux and maybe SAGA I started making a flexible gaming mat inspired by Sir Tobi of Lead Adventure Forum! I have no idea whether it's going to work or not. But we'll see in a few days when it's all dry...

Spreading the goo was harder than I thought it would be. Luckily I can get sturdy latex gloves at the lab, so I don't need to get my hands dirty.

Also the amount of scattering material needed to make this was a lot more than expected. You're easily spending half a tube of those big old Woodland scenics ones. Not economic unless you know what you're doing! :-D

I cross my fingers that this is going to work... I used some cheap hemp-like cloth and I have no idea whether it's going to work. Before spreading it I put a plastic table cloth underneath so it won't stick to the wooden table if it goes through.

Oh well, hobby is hell!
