Last week I finally got all the "bitz" together for my Procession of Morr display Board. Thanks go heavily to Dropzone Games (who supplied the Realm of Battle board section, the Skullvane Manse, War Altar, and the Garden of Morr), my friend Dave (who provided another Garden of Morr), and my friend John (who hooked me up with the big-ass bell hanging from the Manse).
Thanks go to my wife too, who gave me some free time today so I could get a lot more work done. My daughters are wonderful and I love them both dearly, but they can (as any parent knows) be a bit of a handful at times.
I hope you enjoy the shots of the board. Priming starts tonight, and painting tomorrow.
At the top of this post I mentioned Dropzone Games. Dropzone is a brand-new store in the Baltimore area (well, in the Glen Burnie area) that is owned and run by three former GW employees with a drive and determination to see everything done right. Some of you may remember this post from September of 2010, in which I decried the fashion in which GW chose to close down the Baltimore Battle Bunker. Well, in a somewhat ironic turnaround the then-manager of the Bunker, Tom Gruhala, is now the manager of Dropzone Games which is, amusingly enough, located in the same building as the old Bunker. Pretty cool, huh?
Anyway, the guys are now open for business, and stock all manner of cool miniature gaming stuff. There are the standards you'd expect (Warhammer, 40K, Warmahordes, Flames Of War), but they are also carrying strong ranges of Mantic's Warpath and Kings of War, Dust Warfare, and the Bolt Action range from Warlord Games. Add to that a good selection of resin "after-market" parts from Scibor, Micro Arts, and Kromlech and you've got some great choice. Tom has also told me that with short shipping times from almost all of their suppliers, special orders placed before 3pm can be at the store within a day or two. Nice!
If you are in the MD/VA area, head on in and check them out, and keep your ears open for details of their big "Grand Opening" event in September. Here's a quick link to their website, and you can follow/like them on Twitter/Facebook too.
