Still alive !!!

Ben non le TiYo n'est pas mort !!! Bon c'est vrai que j'ai pris un gros break estival au niveau du blog... et il va falloir attendre encore quelques semaines avant de nouvelles publications : je pars en vacances (enfin !) pour 3 semaines, mais promis dès mon retour je m'y remets.


En prévision, des photos de transports antigrav de chez Old Crow Models, de l'infanterie et des chars allemands WWII de chez Battlefront ; une revue des différents set de cartes publiés par AAG.

Sinon j'ai commencé à travailler sur la traduction de Force on Force, mais c'est un projet à long terme : l'objectif étant d'avoir terminé pour début 2010 en prévision des conventions de l'année prochaine.

Côté dernière news de chez Ambush Alley Games, c'est la sortie de la première extension pour Force on Force : "operation Uruzgan" basée sur les forces australienne en Afghanistan.
Dont voici le visuel de couverture :
