  1. I've posted the report and photos from our "A Lily Pad Too Far" frog vs frog game at Cold Wars: A Lily Pad Too Far A highlight was when my unit of Reaper Squogs close assaults and takes out the enemy War Cart.
  2. Pcktlnt box has arrived.
  3. The postman cometh....
  4. Path and driveway all shoveled, now the long wait for today’s delivery. Nose pressed to the glass waiting...
  5. I have now posted a report on the "Duke Morrison and the Great Zeppelin Raid" game that a friend and I ran at Cold Wars: https://onemoregamingproject.blogspot.com/2018/03/duke-morrison-and-great-zeppelin-raid.html For pictures of other games that were run in our club room Saturday, see: https://onemoregamingproject.blogspot.com/2018/03/saturday-at-cold-wars-in-hawks-room.html
  6. Reapercon BoGW?

    Yay!!! I may just collapse from all the box upon box excitement!
  7. Same problem here but in reverse...the pcklnt box is suppose to arrive today, but with 6-12 inches of snow expected, I don’t see that happening...
  8. Reapercon BoGW?

    Woohoo! I can’t wait! Lol...I can’t help but smile at the irony of waiting all this time, and now it loooks like the regular BOGW and the Reapercon BOGW are going to land on my doorstep in the space of one week!
  9. Over on the Ghost Archipelago thread in the Fantasy forum, I posted about a toy-elephant head I glued to a Bones Bugbear to make a creature called an Eritherean, which is featured in the Bestiary for those rules, and is essentially an elephantman. This led to a long discussion, and the inevitable gluing of the spare Bugbearhead to the Elephant's body. It also made me realize how addictive head-swapping is, and since it was beginning to derail the Ghost Archieplago thread, I thought I'd open a new thread here for everybody to share any head-swapping projects they were doing. To see the original thread, and subsequent discussion: And here are the photos of my efforts so far: So what have you been working on!?
  10. Infinity War Trailer

    The first trailer for Marvel's Infinity War was released today. It looks amazing, but I can't help but worry it will be a big muddled mess. Part of me is a little sad to see this phase of the Marvel Cinematic Universe coming to an end. There were some highs and lows, but in general it has been a very enjoyable trip. I can still remember watching the original Iron Man movie for the first time. How quickly the years have passed. I will have to plan a big Marvel movie marathon before next May. :)
  11. Infinity War Trailer

    The second trailer for Infinity War was released over the weekend. It will be fun to see Star Lord and Ironman butt heads.
  12. I have posted a bunch photos to my blog from Friday in our club room at Cold Wars this past weekend: Friday at Cold Wars
  13. Anyone else going up to the Cold Wars Wargaming Convention in Lancaster, PA this weekend? I'll be in the Paradise Room (the "HAWKs' room") most of the time, so stop in and say, "hi!" I'll be co-GMing a trio of off the wall games on Friday night and Saturday: 1) Santa and the Great Zeppelin Attack (Fri. 7PM) 2) Duke Morrison and the great Zeppelin Raid (Sat 9AM) 3) A Lily Pad Too Far (Sat 7PM)
  14. Trying to find a dwarf librarian/sage

    Khael Stonekindle, with the left hand from http:// Leisynn, Mercenary Mage would be a quick and easy conversion. That's the route I went when I wanted a more bookish wizard...
  15. Ohhh, how cool would that be as part of some evil wizard’s lair.... adventures preserved in giant bottles... or maybe just skeletons in giant bottles!
  16. Wooden Watchtower

    Looking good! When faced with treasure atop a tower, a common tactic we use is to have the figure with the treasure at the top of the tower drop the treasure to the bottom, and then have somebody waiting at the bottom to pick it up. Saves the problem of taking the time to lug the treasure all the way down manually.
  17. The first teaser trailer is out for Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald. I know there's a lot of controversy surrounding Johnny Depp's casting as Grindewald, and the original movie had a luke warm reception (I liked it); but Jude Law sure does make a cool young Dumbledore and I'm interested to see what he does with the character.
  18. RIP Stephen Hawking

    A sad day indeed. But what a mark he made on the world. He had a gift for making science seem accessible to everyone, instead of being some faceless name in an ivory tower.
  19. We kicked off this year's campaign season, with our first Ghost Archipelago game this past Saturday. Since it was the first game, and the first time with the rules for a couple of the guys, we played just a simple battle and not one of the scenarios. My Heritor's report can be found here: First Foray onto Fantastic Shores "...As the Elf leaned over to reach into the pedestal, he caught sight of the Heritor Gregorius for the first time, emerging from a patch of jungle on his left. The other Heritor clutched a grime-covered urn to his chest, and as he turned he likewise caught sight of Lord Fortrywn. Gregorius' eyes narrowed as he quickly apprised what Lord Fortrywn was doing. The old Elf could see the turmoil in his opponent's eyes as greed flashed across them. The human Heritor looked at his urn then back at the newly smashed hole in the idol's pedestal, his mind calculating..."
  20. Intro and W.I.P.

    Welcome to the forum! It looks good so far.
  21. Do a Heroclix search for "Nurse". There are several varieties that might work with a little modding... "Night Nurse", "Green Lantern Nurse"; and heck, even "Nurse Chapel"!
  22. Dying to know now where your box is... still with Kieanna?
  23. Dang! So there goes any hopes of good Kickstarter deals making this more reasonable to afford...
  24. Wow, those are all great! I love the Hello Kitty and the Space Skellies!
  25. Happiness is ...

    Finding a BOGW on the doorstep. Or even better, discovering a big Reaper Kickstarter shipping box has been delivered. Then, sitting in a quiet house, with a hot beverage, and having plenty of time to paw through all the goodies from either box!
