Rhys played his first game of Gruntz the other day. He has been collecting his army slowly over the last couple of months and I've been painting them for him. He gets units or vehicles as rewards for being good at school. As I've mentioned before, Rhys is special needs and having that goal helps. I print out a picture of the model he's aiming for that week and put it in his folder so the teacher can remind him of his goal when necessary.
The buildings are from the Ion Age line. I need to take a moment to gush here. I've seen them online, and they look good, but I was not prepared for the quality of what I got. These are on a par with the best in the business. Sharp, clean and clever. Buy some. You will not regret it. the turrets that come with these fit on their vehicles as well, giving you a huge number of options for both vics and buildings.
The following battle report is a squad level game between Rhys' Raiders and the 47th Infiltration Company. We played on a single 2ft x 2ft table tile.
