My first trip to Huzzah!

This was my first ever trip to a strictly gaming convention and Huzzah it was. I met some AWESOME people and played some cool games. I even won a copy of In Her Majesty’s Name...I never win anything...The thing I noticed when I got there was everyone's willingness to spread the hobby, share tips tricks and rule sets. I can't wait for next year!

Shootout at the Greenhouse, starring lots of my buildings!

During this dice HATED me and my crappy tactics probably didn't help...but my dice did hate me.

The above are shots of the awesome table of one J.Mike Paine. Mike was kind enough to let me sit in on a couple of games. As soon as I walked in to Huzzah I gravitated to this table. Really nice stuff!

It has been a long, long time...

What Have I been up to? Well, building game board, workbenches, mines and mine shafts. And I am doing them all very sssssssssllllllooooooooowly (see five minute rule.) I really took my cues from Terrain Templar on YouTube. I have found his videos very helpful and thorough. 
I am making 2x2 modular boards with a desert theme. I am making four flat boards and four with corner hills (one of which will be a mine entrance.)

Above is the 2x2 waiting for the Liquid Nails dry.

One of the many Mine entrance configurations.

This isn't even the final entrance is an "evolving process"

Getting to know my foam cutters and sand.

Test paints...

The 2 tier hill is the color I am going to go with for the boards and the small hill will be inside the mine.
