The first season ended with the Ducato di Libagioni on top, followed by Le Grande-Duche de Gourmandie and then the Ejercito Revolucionaria Populista (AKA ERP).
To start things off, some pictures previously seen on the "Building 6mm Terrain in under 72 hours". The game was quite fun, and ended with a victory for the noble capitalist pig-dogs.
And now for some pictures from the first of many ImagiNation games of the weekend. Using the correct scouting rolls and terrain placement yielded to even less terrain then normal. I guess Dave and I used a bit too much terrain in the last few games we played.
Thank's for the read! Watch for a future post from myself with some new goodies!

Success! In the end, everything turned out well. The boards took a little beating on the trip up, but a little emergency flock fixed them up.
Rules used for this game are the fun and cheerful Cold War Commander and the two forces pitted against one another are Soviets and 'mericans.

We did it! After a late night and early morning, Mike and I "completed" the nine boards. Some frantic last minute flocking ensued before we packed them away into the truck along with all of my ImagiNation stuff.
Part three will show off the boards on table and game.
I told Mike immediately after finishing the boards: "that was fun, lets never do this again". Safe to say, next time we embark upon crafting terrain, we need to plan a little bit more time.
Off to the KHANNNNNN!

Day 2 (Wednesday) :
Around lunchtime on Wednesday we got to work again, getting good work done on the Autobahn. The day ended with a game of spaceships that was canceled by the horrible weather we have had in the evenings and nights. Believing that the thunderstorm could be weathered out under our gazebo, Peter, Rob and Mike had a nasty surprise and were last seen dashing into the house with all forms of gaming stuff.
We set to work in the early afternoon and by working as efficiently as possible, we managed to get the entirety of the construction done around 7:30.
Adding the fields, dirt roads and base for the forests, we soldiered on. Now we are forced to play the waiting game as the drywall compound and acrylic paint used to seal the foam dries.

Note: My apologies for the photo quality below. They look great on the iPad but when transferred to Blogger they lose considerable quality. Hmmmm....
For those interested, the regulated army establishment of Le Grand-Duché de Gourmandie:

1) I've created an army creator spreadsheet that calculates unit and national advantage costs. An snapshot is included below, showing my proposed army:
Monday, May 6, 2013
My first order of business was to create a spreadsheet to calculate possible initial army creations. Not so onerous a task as one might think, since I do this for a living. Maurice recommends using 100 points to spend on unit creation and army characteristics. I think we'll follow that recommendation to start. There are of course options to build on your basic army, but that would also require the painting of more figures. Hmmmmm, not so easy.
And rather than bog down the blog with detailed descriptions of the rule mechanisms, I think the better approach would be to go forward in an anecdotal and descriptive fashion. But to each his own, since Phil is now a contributing author on the blog. Of course Michael is too, but he has no army. But I have a few ideas to get him in the campaign as well, despite that rather significant shortcoming. But more of that anon...
