Much of this weekend's free time has been spent painting a few more Roman units for my Ancients project. The very simple block painting of these HaT figures continues to be very enjoyable exercise and units can be created at a reasonable rate.

On the wargaming side I made up some chance cards for the WW2 Western Desert campaign. I had been using them and adjusting them over the last few games and they are covered with lots of hand written notes. It was high time to recreate them as the notes and crossing outs were getting very messy and confusing.
|The cards are created in Google Slides and printed off before being stuck on cereal/cracker boxes. I use a glue stick and stick the the outside part of the cardboard. Then cut out.|
|I am using 12 cards during a game. Air support, mid-day haze, and sandstorm cards are added (depending upon the scenario) replacing one of the "no event" cards.|
|By using a glue stick avoids the issues of the printed paper bubbling when stuck on the cardboard.|
|The finished cards. The pictures on the cards help differentiate the cards for each player. One set has a Matilda tank and the other a Panzer III.|
I am planning to play the next game in the WW2 Western Desert campaign using these cards.
