Rogue Planet: Le Beast Bu’ger

The daughter gave in to my strong-arm tactics and ice-cream based bribery to join me in a miniature wargame miniature campaign.  We are using Rogue Planet, a lesser known title that features an action-reaction initiative system with a lot of quirky combat and movement subsystems. For this mini-campaign, we sat...

Rogue Planet Quick Reference Sheet

Apparently, there aren’t any publicly available QRS’s for Bombshell Games’ Rogue Planet.  You can find some files on BoardGameGeek for download, but they are behind a membership wall, and…yeah.  Not interested in going down that road any more. So here’s a little something for you few fine fellows who...

New Year, New Project

Time for an annual genre shift.  2017 was a year filled with fantasy.  My fantasy table is as complete as it needs to be and my fantasy figure tackle box is crammed almost to bursting.  The pair of long weekends for the holiday mean that I’ve had time to...

Drone Sweet Drones

Two years ago, while travelling through upper Cali, I found these little guys inside the glass case of a comic/gaming/general nerdery shoppe called Bat Comics and Games.  At only a buck each and perfect for drones in 15mm scale, I snatched them up.  They had no identifiers, but that’s...

Quick Hit: Kid Stuff

The 11 year old has a little extra time on her hands this week, so she decided the miniature collection needed a few additions.  Here, a cleaner bot (left) has been interrupted by a tentacular blue alien (right).  Proud poppa is proud....

Chicken Joe!

Ain’t this little alien civilian nice?  He’s yet another 15mm.co.uk figure.  He was cheap and fun, so he got tossed into the basket of my last fantasy purchase.  He made for a nice palette cleanser after all of this year’s fantasy....

A Bit of Sci-Fi

Chalk these two little guys up to the lead mountain.  They’ve been based and primed for a long time, just kind of hanging out in the queue waiting for inspiration to strike.  It never did, so I finally just knocked out a quick bronze and silver pattern respectively.  ...

Flooring, Inserts, and a Little Juxtoposition

One cheap and easy, and light on the storage requirements, method to add more flavor to the 2.5d dungeon is to use inserts.  So far my dungeon has five of these clever little devices.  Rather than an unending series of black floors, these pieces of cardstock can be dropped...

Never Paint Alone – A Podcast Recommendation

In The Garage The best time for painting – at least for middle-aged family men for whom this hobby is at the bottom of a long, long list of things to do – is that magic hour between seeing the kids off to bed and when days tribulations finally...

Black Ops Battle Photos

The last Black Ops battle fought in the Abox house pitted a group of Prang! trying to capture and contain a force of Octopods.  This time around we switched the sides. The Prang! started out in the center of the board, with the Octopods on the outskirts.  It didn’t go...
