Robots, a Juve & Other By-Standers

When I'm not writing, I'm painting - unless I'm doing Floozy things, can't tell you what those are because then everyone would want to be a Floozy.  Anyway, I finished another batch of figures as I inch my way toward meeting my goal of painting 520 figures this year. Agent 117a - Docking Level 12… Continue reading Robots, a Juve & Other By-Standers

Star Punk Dreams – Part 3

“She didn’t see that first bullet, but it must have hit a wire or something, coming through, because the lights came on.  She did see the second one, or anyway the hole it blew in the leather-grain plastic.  Something inside her stopped, learning this about bullets: that one second there isn’t any hole, the next… Continue reading Star Punk Dreams – Part 3

Star Punk Dreams – Part 2

“Everybody’s looking for something, some of them want to use you; some of them want to get used by you...” – Eurythmics, Sweet Dreams.

A Street Samurai, Support Sisters & Dwarfs

Is there a pattern to what I paint?  Well, sorta, maybe.  I have what is called in miniature gaming a "huge lead pile."  That means I've accumulated a large number of figures over the years that I just haven't painted or gamed with.  A shame, really.  I should be forced to walk naked through the… Continue reading A Street Samurai, Support Sisters & Dwarfs

The Cool Crew of the Cool Coolie

One of the great things about scenario books from Two Hour Wargames is that most of them have pre-generated characters ready for use as well as a means of generating your own characters.  When I generate the characters, I use the same process that's in the rule book and then play a few encounters with… Continue reading The Cool Crew of the Cool Coolie

5150: Missions – Find Encounter

I've got some time off this week, so I was able to squeeze in a game.  I decided to play an encounter from the 5150: Missions rules.  I chose this set of rules because you can play it on the tabletop or using a battle board,  there is no need for tape measures to measure… Continue reading 5150: Missions – Find Encounter
