  1. Episode 7 of the On Minis Games podcast is up! In this episode of On Minis Games Giles and Quinton talk about the recent Dystopian Wars Tournament they ran locally. We kick off with a quick hobby update, talking painting for Dystopian Wars, Sword and Spear miniatures and Kings of War. We then dive into the subject of our 2017 Annual Dystopian War Tournament, held just a few days prior to recording.

  17. There are meant to be 5 of the LZ5 Rycerz. There was an error in the ORBAT which I believe has been updated (the blog has also been amended).
  18. In the last episode of the Element 270 podcast (yes, shameless plug) - www.element270.wordpress.com Neil talks about three ranges of scenery that they're working on. 1) the stuff in the box - bunkers etc. 2) Downsized (10mm) versions of everything you can currently get in Spartan Scenics. 3) the City scape stuff - with the high rises and so forth. Episode link: https://element270.wordpress.com/2014/11/04/episode-20-planetfall/
  19. Yeah, they were tough. I got them at Spotlight, a local craft supply store, they were in with beads and bits for making jewellery.
  20. A lot of fun was had! The Covenant face off against the Chinese... http://element270.wordpress.com/2014/11/18/the-covenant-and-the-chinese-fighters-galore/
