This project is taking way longer than it should be and the main reason is buildings. Over a year ago when we started it all seemed so simple, use the Sarissa South Of The Border range plus some from the City Block, bang them on some 2′ x 2′ mdf boards and away we go! We even spoke to Sarissa at the last Deby show and ideas about modifying the city blocks to look more ‘south of the border’ were discussed but time moved on, they were busy expanding their ranges we got sidetracked by other projects, blah, blah, blah.
It’s been a while but I thought I’d write about our attempts to sort out the rules and the buildings which has been a bit of a journey to be honest.
Readers may recall back in Part One I was all over the Spectre Operations rules, mainly based on reading and looking at nice shiny photographs, not actually playing.
Well we had a couple of games using fairly generic terrain (mainly due to not having sorted out the planned barrio area I had promised to do a year ago!) and it didn’t go so well.
We left this project with figures and vehicles to paint and rules to try, which at the time sounded pretty easy…………..
For a little while now we’ve been doing random tweets about this project so it seemed like we ought to put some kind of context around the idea and where we hope to take it (if anywhere!)
