D&D fun

This week we played a little D&D minis.  Here I am getting my squads together. What a mess! T3 does not know what to think!
The battle starts!  Two player teams. The droids and THOR look on in amazement.
This week we had Pizza! MMMMMMMMMM!
You need a 12 to hit, it can be done!
HIT!  let the Mountain Dew flow Freely!
Next week, Star Wars Minis! 200 point squads.

Game nights

Some of you might not know, but I am a gamer as well as a robot builder. Long before I started this site I used to make custom SWM maps, custom figures for the games, and terrain that was to scale with the minis.
 I have never been an action figure collector kind of guy. I like mini pieces and full scale replicas, not to interested in everything in between.

Here are a few of my gamer friends and me having a night of Star Wars and D&D minis play.
The SWM wars were epic. Many fallen warriors on all sides.
During half time we gamers do what we do best, EAT!!!
Here during the D&D game, the Giant Blue Dragon ate all who stood in his way. Not a soul survived.
Getting my squads together for next week. One day I will get it all organized!

 Saturday was FCBD and R2-Central was invited back again this year to ACME Comics so Brad, Jen, and I brought our droids. Other R2-Central members took their droids to other comic shops that were having FCBD and had a good time as well. :)

 Here is R3-TL and R2-D2 waiting in the shade for the day's event to start.

R3 is a fan of the DARK SIDE!

The droids took tons of photos all day long!

Ready to race! On your mark get set.......

Roller derby girls and Star Wars. Nice combo!
Another great year! We look forward to the next FCBD!

Reading is fun!!

Packed up R3 to help Trish and Shooter with Trish's Dad's reading class as he could not go today. We brought our Star Wars gear to the school to surprise the kids for passing their reading class this year.
Boo the wonder reading dog did not know what to think of the moving, talking fire hydrant. LOL
The kids were surprised to see us. Trish was in her Tie, Shooter was in his Stormtrooper, Boo was himself, and I hid in the back of the class and drove R3.
Fun group photo!
As an added bonus Trish and Shooter gave out Lego Star Wars toys to the kids as well as some Star Wars books for the school.  Very cool of them to donate all of that!
Once we were done we popped into another class that wanted to take a picture with us.
It was a fun afternoon! It is great to do good for the community! Thanks T&J for inviting R3 and me!
