The Road to NOVA 11

Hello All,

RGH here with a new post on the latest pit stop on this ongoing journey we like to call the NOVA open.

Yesterday (Saturday) we held our 9th Build session for 2012. As always it was a blast. We had around 8 folks working hard and Mike Brandt.

Sleeping on the job?

Actually this is a photo of Mike taking pictures of the really great pieces of terrain we built yesterday. you can see his shots HERE.

As I said much work was done and the pieces created are above average and will only get better when painted. Here are some pictures of the workstations hard at work.

Assembly line- Ford would be proud
Bits Bits and more Bits
Lets get busy!
This is where ruins come from

And here are some pictures of our pieces compleated...

Pink City

And here are some of the finished (or mostly) pieces that some of our gang have been doing as homework.

 We had a special visitor of NOVA 2011 fame... You remember the Viking!

Here comes the invader

Who better than a Viking to make ruins!

The meal of the day- Brats and Burgers


Well that's it for now...

Till next time

The Road to the NOVA 2012 Part 10

Hello All,

Welcome to the New Blog. I hope the driving directions were accurate. :)

This past Saturday we had our first Build session for April 2012. This was our 8th session for this year.

Our goal this time 24 partial L.O.S blocking and 40 Scatter pieces.

We were making up for the remainder from last session as well and hitting our numbers for the current build day. Once again our fantastic staff of volunteers proved that they were up to the challenge.

Not only did they complete all that was asked of us but also managed to glue/sand texture tons of our completed buildings and cut/shape a pile of wood bases for the terrain we were making that day.

Urban Sprawl the NOVA way.............

keeps going... and going

and going and going and going...

To our team: Thanks for a job well done.

Below are some other pictures from Saturday's event. Enjoy

Every Build session should start with a good breakfast: Greek Yogurt + Chocolate + Vitamin water = everything a growing volunteer needs.

Lunch did not survive contact with the enemy. As always the eats were top notch and a reason in itself to show up for builds.

Here we see two of our work stations going strong. This is what it's all about...making a mess (and nice terrain pieces lol)

Well that's it for today.

I hope you like the new Blog and will come back and visit from time to time and see what's going on. If you really enjoyed it you could add yourself as a follower or if you feel up to it show up at a build session or two.

If all goes well we will be painting next session

Keep on truckin...

Welcome to the Road

Hello and welcome to The Road To NOVA Blog.

This Blog will continue the "Road To NOVA" articles I have been writing since last Summer.

The Blog is also an extension of my primary Blog The Rogue General Hunter.

Why did I create the "R2N"?

The reason for the new Blog is twofold:

First- I feel like there is enough going on with terrain and other NOVA projects that the information needs it's own source.

Second- I feel that the NOVA Open posts, while entertaining, tend to move away from what the RGH blog is about (My own projects and stuff like that.)

Well that's it for now check back in in a few days for the next post... (We have a build session on Saturday)

Till next time
