I knocked this together *checks files* three years ago? Wow! Anyway, a few days ago I decided to finish it up and finally get it posted. [It’ll print best if you use a US Letter Borderless paper setting. And you might want to massage the image scale so it fills the sheet and… Read more »
I’ve had these guys for a while: They’re Reaper figs from Bones 4. I like to think of them as if these guys formed a band and hit the road: Quintaglios, and Triceratons and Voth, oh my! I’ll post them with stats once I get them painted.
I don’t mean better. That’s not what I’m saying. But it is true that It’s been 25 years since Brisco County, Jr. rode across the screen. Yes, I’m late to the party. I had a buddy who really liked the show when it was airing in the early ’90s. I never bothered to look… Read more »
[This one’s for Darren.] A number of years ago I found this fig online. And immediately bought one. You can find him over at Black Cat Bases. (The bookcase is old HeroClix, from their Indoor Adventure Kit.) After some play he went to languish in the back of my cabinet for, well, years. Then about… Read more »
I just watched Secrets of Blackmoor: It’s really good. Those guys remind me of when I first joined Trumpeter as a kid all those decades ago. This doc makes a nice complement to Rob Kuntz’s book Dave Arneson’s True Genius. I hope they do make Part 2.
I just read these: The issues were funded one at a time through Kickstarter. I missed all of those (One, Two, Three). But my guy at The 8th Dimension Comic Store hooked me up. I waited til I had all three to dive in. Glad I did. The story is good and the art… Read more »
Feast on this triptych! What a setting! Twilight: 2000, Cyberpunk and High Colonies were among my favourite games of the ’80s and early ’90s. I never got around to layering them together in any formal way. But I sometimes — even now — fever dream about what could have been. Then I watch Outland.
That’s what the ’80s had. It was dystopias as far as the eye could see: Blade Runner (’82), The Running Man (’87) and Akira (’88) are all set in 2019. It seems the stress of the Cold War-ending Reagan era was a sweet-spot match with the (more or less) single generation distance of that… Read more »
The interwebs made me do this: Size as desired. Post as required.
Well it’s the 5th of Moldvember again. So here’s to you Major Tom! And while I haven’t written him up I am finally reading the Niall of the Far Travels stories by Gardner F. Fox so I can add him to my Giants in the Earth roster. Baby steps.
