My static display at the model train show. I got to set up a static display approximately 4’ x 6’ at a model train show in my local area for the last two days. It was pretty well received by a few people but not a whole lot of enthusiasm as most people were obviously there for model train stuff. I don’t think I picked up any new gamer friends, but the club which was hosting the show was glad to have me there and said I added value to the show.
By the middle of last week I realized I was not going to have my inventory painted and so I opened up the box of stuff which I had bought off of FeeBay two or three years ago. I must admit Christmas came early this year! I was able to use quite a few of his pieces that were already painted and put together and some that were just primed. I am much better table than what I would’ve had without them. there are some things in that box that I will never get around to painting or using. At some point I may seek out a trade for some of the stuff. Most of it is new in the package and have never been opened. The paint jobs are certainly not the best, but I was between a rock and a hard place so I’m not going to complain. I used them with a smile on my face! I was sort of in a dark corner so no one really paid attention to the paint jobs anyway.
I basically laid out the game as if the humans were trying to defend the outskirts of the town against three scout tripods, three assault tripods and three little tripods. I forget what they are called, remember I am new at this game! lol
Now if I can remember how to do this I will post some pictures. Enjoy!
thanks for all the comments guys, I’m glad to see that by them I must be doing something correct! LOL. Yes you can get lots of good stuff at Train Shows for all quiet on the Martian front. That was one of my big draws to it as it is basically HO scale. Being a model railroader I have lots of stuff to use and always come across used to stuff just like you guys said!!!
It doesn’t look like I had any luck so far. But you just never know! Thank you for sharing it it gives me motivation to do it again. We had our freemoN modules set up and did gain another member from it!
