No real progress to report on the minis front. However, I was able to visit a miniature gaming store about 1.5 hours away from me that I rarely get to go to. I picked up a few things but I was mostly going to show a friend the store. He offered to drive and pay for lunch so I could not refuse. My biggest purchase was a new boardgame, Command and Colors Ancients from GMT. I am interested in the ancients era and had heard good things about this game so with my friend's "encouragement" I bought it. Below you can see a picture of the game out of box.
So last night and tonight have consisted of 'assembling' the game. By assemble I mean putting the unit stickers on 345 small blocks and seven dice. I finished the Roman units and now it is on to the Carthaginians. I did read through the rules and it seems like it will be alot of fun, after I finish putting the stickers on that is. :)
