Blast from the past - Hero Quest

Whilst sorting out a cupboard in the shed I came across my edition of "Hero Quest". I decided to double check the box contents, with the decision that if it was not complete that I would ditch it, well blow me it was complete.
so Tonight it was "Hero Quest" time...

Hero Quest, Doughnuts and Beer, what else do you want.

Kryomek - Picture dump

These are my now sold Kryomek units. Found the pictures in a folder on my hard drive and thought I would post them here:

Drop Zone Commander...Whoops!

Whoops..I just bought my self an early birthday present with some money I made from selling off some of my FOW.

Someone posted on the WWPD site about a new starter set. Drop Zone Commander has been on my radar since last autumn when I purchased the rules to read. Although the miniatures are damn pricey, I resisted.
Then I got the City scenery set a few months back, so I was already slowly being drawn towards this game, when hey presto, a starter set arrived on the scene. It was too good an opportunity to miss.
You can purchase it here:

Battlegroup Kursk test game

Having had the rules for a while, I have not been able to test the rules, but last night I did with a little help from the usual suspect.
I put together two 150 point armies and headed over for a few hours tinkering.
1 Infantry platoon, 1 panzer IVG = 150 points 14 Br
1 Forward HQ, 1 Infantry platoon, 1 T34-76, 1 Matilda 2 = 148 points 14 Br

The table was 4x4 feet and had a church in the middle with identical terrain both sides.
