But a couple of days ago I just HAD TO go to the local game store to see what new items ( and sale items! ) they had, and to use up a gift certificate. "Dear, you want to go shopping?" Once I mentioned the area, she knew, but decided to come along away.....
Now as I buzzed around the store like a very excited and confused hamster before she got too bored, I found the '4Ground' display and came across their turn dial.
Well I liked the concept so I bought it and with my OCD kicking in, I of course had to do my thing to "blend it" into the table as not to have visual distractions.
Without spending much time on this, I painted the edges black, the tab brown, added my "earth" putty and flocking, and deciding that I wanted a bit of extra weight as not to allow the number to be changed should an accidental nudge be made, I added an existing lead Prussian casualty. Actually the dial seemed too plain and I thought of the extra 'dead' to place on top. I have plastic dead types but this Prussian was already painted and in hindsight the weight effect is a good by-product !
|While close to the action in this photo, the dial will be no doubt placed in the corner of the table but hopefully not too eye distracting.|
Quote of the day: I have CDO. It's exactly like OCD but all the letters are in the g*d**n correct alphabetical order !! <grin>
