I was seriously considering coming this year...but it fell on the weekend we traditionally go with our trailer to meet my brother- and sister-in-law as they head north in their RV for a two-month visit.

And we lost our cat whilst camping, so it was not fun. Fortunately my crazy cat lady sis-in-law (her words, not mine) stayed when I had to get back to work...and with the help of half the County law enforcement establishment, recovered said cat.

Yeah it was fun; I figured it would be fun to have a reason for being in the tavern. It kind of grew from there. I never found my stuff or my girlfriend that I was looking for. I'm just glad the cleric carried me out of the cave!

We did the DF lunch together; all around great guy! And not too dusty!
Thanks for the praise! I enjoyed your segue into pirate slaying at the booth game, maybe we can find an excuse to end up at the same place again for more gaming one of these days. I hope you enjoyed your GenCon experience. If you decide to come next year make sure to let me know. I'll have to see if I can find a reasonable excuse to make it out that way some time too.

Yeah, GenCon was pretty hectic this year but it was still a blast. Got to peek at some interesting sculpts from some sculptors and I got to show the wife some of the zombie related terrain from 4Ground in person. Part of the DF crew is in love with the youngest rugrat (6 months, they met her while wearing a lvl 1 human onsie). I also did a class for casting in resin which let me decide how I feel about it without a large investment. It seems I need to order some molds and some two part resin. I'll be using it for bits and bobs, so I don't need to worry about the 7 year old destroying them as much. The time investment for the amount I want to do (especially since assembly is minimal to non-existant) is pretty low.

As to the boats, I plan to display them on top of shelving units and on part of my desk anyway. I found a song that sums up how I feel about 28mm boats right now. Fair warning, it is a kitchy pirate themed metal group whose attraction does not lie in their singing talent.

I intend to have a fleet worth of ships and boats of various sizes for 28mm. I think I will try to acquire one of these. I already have a line on some discounted Blood and Plunder ships as well. I'd share, but it is a personal invitation so it wouldn't do anyone else any good.

we have 7-8 built lego ships in about the right scale for 28mm. I get the attraction but I'll stick to Lego...because worst come to worst, I can break them down and store 'em, like DwF.

Lord D, can't recall, did you not make GenCon this year?

At the risk of being declasse, I use Lego ships. I can make them any way I want, any scale I want, and I have the Lego already....

Especially if the Paint Job is decent. For anyone with a campaign with a nautical component, this could be a cool albeit LARGE add. Where to keep it will become a serious Question, but I suspect since I found a spot for the Gargantuan Red Dragon and his Chromatic Cohorts I could find a spot for a ship like this. Any more details on release date timing?

Thanks, last I had seen was speculation about fall 2018, but that might have been based on the preorder date.
