Saying Goodbye to 2012.

Hey guys, welcome to my last post of 2012.  It has been a long year for me and while my RL has not been that great in the last 12 months, I have accomplished a lot of stuff hobby wise. At the beginning of the year I set myself 7 goals (some of them 2 parters) that I wanted to achieve this year. While by the end of this post you will see I didn't meet very many of my goals, I do feel that I achieved a lot this year.

Intro to Dust Warfare! Part 1

Hey guys, I have a bit of news for you today.  Recently I was asked to start writing for a new blog on the What Would Patton Do? Network called Outpost Zero.  I will be doing a series of articles for them about a number of games including Dust Warfare, the new Iron Kingdoms RPG, and whatever other games I get motivated to write about.  While I highly encourage you to check out WWPD and Outpost Zero I will also be posting all the articles I write right here on 24 Hour Gamer Geek, just a week or so after they originally appear on Outpost Zero or any of the other Blogs in the WWPD Network.  My first article is part 1 of a multi-part series about Dust Warfare (and maybe some Dust Tactics too down the line).  Part 1 covers the back story or as I like to call it... the fluff to the Dust world.  Part 2, coming soon, goes more into the game mechanics of Dust Warfare.  Enjoy!


Hey guys and welcome to my first post on the WWPD Network.  My name is Jay Powell but some of you may know me as HuronBH on the WWPD Forum or from around the web.  Starting with this post and moving on into the future I will be sharing with you insights and cool models, from the large variety of games that I play.  While the majority of my posts will show up here on Outpost Zero; I do also play Saga, Bolt Action, and occasionally Flames of War; so you may see posts from me occasionally in those sections as well.  Enough about me, now on to the topic at hand DUST WARFARE!

Tuesday Time Capsule #3

Hey guys, Huron here... Welcome to another Tuesday Time Caspule post!

This week I will be talking about a game near and dear to many of our hearts and which you can still find played occasional even though GW no longer supports it.  I am sure you have guessed it from the pic below... NECROMUNDA!

Tuesday Time Capsule #2

Hey guys, Huron here again.  Time for another Tuesday Time Capsule!

This week I thought I would share some Old School Chaos vehicles I found kicking around the Time Capsule case.  Starting off we have some Old School Rhinos all jazzed up and the turret from a Leman Russ battle tank that I converted into a Predator Tank for my original Death Guard army.

While I am not sure what the primed black rhino on the left was for, I am sure it was used in several of the myriad of unpaint or half painted chaos armies I built and rebuilt through out much of 3rd and 4th edition.  These armies were reform and changes daily sometimes being tweak and retweaked to cover all the different gods and traitor chapters.

Tuesday Time Capsule #1

Hey, Huron here bringing you a taste of my mini gaming past!

For the first Tuesday Time Capsule I thought I should share with you the most startling discovery I made when opening up the Time Capsule case.  I have long believed that my first Historical Mini Gaming experience was with Flames of War.  I originally picked up some Flames of War Russians back when the game was first becoming popular but ended up selling them off pretty quickly to a friend as the scale was pretty daunting to me.  Then when Huzzah Hobbies, my now LGS, opened up near me I gave the game a second look (Thanks to the store owner Chris who is an avid historicals fan).  This lead me down the slippery slope of Historical gaming where I now find myself with armies for Flames of War, Saga, Bolt Action, DBA, WAB, War & Conquest, etc.  I am even looking at building some 28mm Civil War Union and Rebel Troops for some Gettysburg (150 anniversary of the battle in 2013) refight scenarios, but that is something I will get into another time.

Back on track, so I though Flames of War was my first experience... But I was wrong.  When I opened the case the first thing that caught my eye (after the old school rhino painted metallic purple, more on that next time) was a 28mm WW2 US Infantrymen sitting amongst  the piles of fantasy and scifi minis.  After digging through the box this is what I found:

New Series Incoming!

Hey guys, Huron here again.  Today I want to share withing the background behind and give you a preview of a new series of articles that will be gracing my blog starting next week.  It is called Tuesday Time Capsule!  This past thanks giving while visit my parents I asked them if I could go up to the Attic to see if there was still any of my stuff up there from when I moved out back  in 2004, so 8ish years ago.  I was really looking for my old Magic Card collection to see if I had any old cards still that were worth anything.  However I came across some old miniatures cases, most of which where empty.  However one case... the one pictured below ended up being something of a goldmine.
