Im yet to kick the solo gaming in gear. Between being sick a lot and being able to pick up great deals on video games that interest me I just havent jumped in yet. I think my next batch of minis I paint will be the skeleton army I have for runewars. Then I can totally use those for frostgrave and start the perilous dark book. Im not sure people would really bring much in the way of speeder bikes for the legion skirmish format just because of the small point limit. I really had to shave down what I brought to the table to keep at 500 or under with vader.

Some of the main links on Amazon are not available until about the same time. I'll probably shuck out for one additional core set after a little while. Then I plan on slowly buying one of each pack til I eventually have at least 1 of all of them. I really enjoyed the extra firepower that the shoretroopers packed. The packs I'm most excited for have to be the Stormtrooper, rebel, phase 1 clone, and B1 droid upgrade packs with the 4 different specialists that supplement the core box forces to give more options on those. Getting to bring different aspects such as training to those core units should really shake the game up. My brother really loved the Skirmish rules for legion. I really liked that it let you play a game on a smaller map with a smaller force count to allow for a faster game. Time is the biggest killer in miniatures tabletop games when people come out to play one. I decided to do a little more crafting with some foam I had at my place. I had some 2 inch foam that I wanted to use up so I am making some elevated plateaued hills, one having an underhang with a rocky column. I made it to get some more use out of the upgrades like the grappling hooks and to really get some high ground on other units. I'll also be using it for other games like gridless heroscape and possibly throw it in there when I'm running the solo coop frostgrave games when I get to those. It looks like I'll probably get in some more gaming with my one brother over the holidays.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

I couldn't bring myself to getting Clone Wars stuff, as my painting backlog is already high for the GCV stuff. It's been like forever since I've painted any trooper units, for Legion, as I've only painted the tank, Landspeeder and downed AT-ST over the past 6 months (though they did have trooper crews).

So much Rangers of Shadow Deep, Fallout Wasteland Warfare and terrain building and painting over the past several months.

I'm going to have some time off between Christmas and New Years, so I plan to try to at least get started back painting some Legion stuff. After watching 3 episodes of The Mandalorian, I might start my Legion painting with Bobafet. We got Disney + a couple days ago. We'd gotten tired of paying overages with our cell phones, so we went unlimited data plan and that allows us to get a year of Disney + for free. With our daughters working and also going out a lot with their boyfriends, the data gets used a lot more now. Kids are expensive

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

@Hahma , yeah Ive been really loving the Mandalorian. I look at that show as how it would look like if they actually made Boba Fett do something it would probably look like that. Ill admit that Ive had doubts about picking up clone wars legion stuff. My painting backlog is also rediculous for lack of any more suitable terms available. Thats why I only started by picking up 1 starter set for now. At the moment only Legion and walking dead have been getting attention. We have had a few more Heroscape gridless games as well. My one brother really likes it. I have 1 brother and 1 brother in law who enjoy playing tabletop games. 2 of that same brother in laws kids also like to play. I have a niece from that same family that doesnt play much but have taught her to paint. She is 16 and now paints wonderfully. I have given her a handful of different minis and helped her base them for display. She has also painted a handful of minis of mine for me. The latest being a giant centipede monster. Its fun to hang out with her while painting. It was easy to get distracted with some of the other miniature games that hit the sales on black friday. Hence the 90 extra models for wrath of kings. But I think Ill probably just concentrate on Legion because I really like the gameplay and am a nut over star wars. I did pick up all the addon content for my fallout 4 game on the ps4. I had beat everything available on that game previously available. Overall I dont completely feel justified on getting the clone wars factions. It was an impulse buy. My brother and brother in law are excited to try them out though. The clones and b1 droids should be quick and easy paintjobs when they do show up. Im in the process of figuring out how to redesign my workshop so it has more surface space to craft and paint so me, my wife, and daughter can craft and paint things together. After that I should really be able to churn out painted minis.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Some minis I've gotten painted lately.

Boba Fett for Legion







A couple more settlers/scavengers for Fallout





Piper from Fallout. She's a reporter from Diamond City in Fallout 4







I painted a few roaches from Mice and Mystics to be glowing radroaches for Fallout. I have 3 of them painted and 5 others that I will paint to be just regular radroaches.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Those are looking great @Hahma . I love those paint jobs. I just finished to large scalable rock outcrops to play with legion and other games. They were built with legion in mind though. They are the thicker 2 inch xps foam stacked up and sculpted with my scroll saw and hot wire cutter tool. I sealed them with a black brush on oil based paint my dad had given me from his shop. It worked well with my buildings so I used the rest of the can on these. I thinned it a little with mineral spirits to get it in all the cracks easier. I then used acrylics to get it to look like stone and will spray it with rustoleum matte clearcoat once its finished setting up. The oil based paint protects it from the aerosol that melts the foam. I got my count dooku assembled today. I also will have my first resin 3d printer arriving at my house by tuesday. I will have loads of fun making mods and such for legion and just a general fun use for novelty type minis as well that I wouldnt be able to buy or things I tried on my fdm printer that didnt work so well. My wife is awesome for ok ing it without a second thought. It only ran me 171 bucks with tax off of amazon prime. Ill be making a legion sized mandalorian mini and baby yoda. If I get it rolling and it works great im going to send you one for sure. I think I figured out how Ill vent the resin fumes from my shop but it will take some minor handywork construction. Very exciting. Ive been wanting one of these for some time now.

Sent some pics of my cliffs via messenger.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Those are cool cliffs @TREX . I woke up at 3:30 as one of the many times I woke up last night, and checked out the pictures you sent.

Glad you liked the minis I posted. They are fun to paint. I don't have a lot of time normally to paint, as I have to balance that with a lot of solo gaming I've been doing, between Fallout and Marvel Champions living card game. But I have some time off around the holidays and hope to get a decent amount painted (for me anyway )

Resin printer too huh? You could open an Etsy store with all the equipment you have for making stuff.

Yeah. I have quite the arsenal of tools for making things nowadays. I would consider doing an etsy store if I wasnt as fortunate as I am with the wages I make being self employed. I do however love to create things in the shop with my free time. I too hope to get to get some gaming in over the holidays and put a dent in my painting backlog before setting up the new printer. Ive come to the realization that I need to modify the setup in my shop to better utilize my space.

Re: Frostgrave, Halo Ground Command and other tabletop minis

Glad that you are doing well being self employed @TREX . None of my business with regards to if you have something setup for retirement, but it is important to start early. Even what you could make having an Etsy store could help if put into a retirement plan. Not to mention possible college planning for the kids.

Being 52 and my wife being 55, we know that the closer you get to retirement, the more you realize the importance of having a 401 or other retirement plan. And, since both my daughters are going to be starting college in 2021, it comes quicker than you think, and any little bit we can do to help them is that much less burden for them. Then of course there are the cars, insurance, phones etc they need as teens.

Those are great points. I do have a decent pension rolled over into an IRA from previous employment. I havent been putting as much back lately for retirement but have focused on keeping my debt to income ratio down and have only a business loan on my service truck. I will have my home paid off in a few more years and have no personal car payments. An etsy store does sound like a fun venture for later on. The short answer is that Im not too nuts with my spending. Some people buy 50,000 dollar pickups or sports cars. I buy tiny plastic people and spend a fraction of what they spend and still drive to work with my slightly older truck that is paid for.
