    Favorites they DO NOT MAKE!!!: good modern air combat, good WWII air combat...
  1. From the Obscure 90's Minis File

    God, i hate that game!!!!! and it's partly because of the Ram Python...it's a very well-kept secret, but the Ram Python is a subtle racist poke. They are generally a braindead combat machine sub-race of the Python people. i played Phentari, and had Python allies. While fighting the Cats, The Ram were essentialy fed to the slaughter to save our skins. I'm not gonna risk my ancient profile on what real-world parallels we discovered while playing, but they are there.... and they are VEILED, not right there for all to see. read some fluff, compare some pictures... i also hated most race design...As Phentari octopus, i wanted eight tentacles, but got four and two legs instead. Octopus with a gas mask = cool. Badly designed Octopus man.... not so cool. overall, that game should stay history....just sayan. fine paint job, despite my rant. i do admire your skill.
  2. Infinity Minis

    Infinity: the game you want to play, but no one else does!!! I have three different cities i tap for game-play resources. and not a single ******* one has another Infinity player, unless you count those "yeah i'll do it" (and never does) types. Alex, i'm looking at you. This game has very kick arse mini's though i MUST point 2 things out: ------What's with 90% of female figs beign a hip swaying model-wannabee or a booty shot? ------The game rules are more complex that DnD 3.0's fight rules, and are written in 9 point font.... i can do, but others find that scarey... otherwise, i'd Yu Jing all the way. and oddly, not the Japanese sub-divbision. (i own Musashi and a Ninja) the ordinary Chinese types stack up to some pretty interesting elites and models...
  3. Hah!! those Villagers! Old Glory tends to not have as much Photo support as one might like...if i ever was to run a mini's company EVERY mini would get 360 treatment. BTW, among those Villagers are a Heian Noble man and Woman, and a Heian elite guard. funny, considerign their acual samurai are Asakura/Sengoku....not Heian...then again, what company would put out a different set for court nobles from villagers when 99.99% of their sales are for SOLDIER mini's if all else fails, i will see about gettign some, and then paintign them.
  4. Sorry to post about a competitor, but, Reaper doesn't exactly make Clan War mini's anymore! i tried contacting VE ltd recetnly, from two venues, and i have no word in response. anyone have some news? or do they hate me that badly? just asking.
  5. Hello, once again. Well, i find myself often too busy to post on just any random topic...(and i'm serious about my signature tag...) but i came across some news that is likley old to most of you, but new to me... White Wolf Publishing will no longer be producing RPG games. they are essentially just a developer branch of CCP now. Onyx Path took over their big liscences, but they are doing it through Drive Thru RPG... give me a moment: The White Wolf games are what really made a gamer out of me. I played two campaigns of ADnD, and they didn't do it for me. But i was then invited to a Werewolf the Apocalypse campaign by my bud Dedros, back in 1996...the tribalism, the level of intensity, and the high-end customization combined with the strange 'Conspiracy and Dark Gods' feel of the meta made me hooked. When i ran ADnD campaigns...i took that storytelling and smart-world design concept and brough tit with me. "too bad about new WOD, eh?" yeah, this would be harsher news had WW not pulled that little trick... this company, despite it's flaws, did me well....
  6. Heisler..those laser-cut ships look like a serious hobby investment. let me guess: projected finish late this year?
  7. Norman SAGA Army - 6 Points

    i like, i like... the Local Club is thinking of going SAGA, and i have no problem w/ custom dice or new mechanics.... my Question is: should i do Normans or Vikings? i like armor, but i also like fast and hard hitting. and yes, though a Gripping Beast game i will seek the Perry's mini's...unless...
  8. Force on Force

    Even though my buds and i are looking forward to 1:285 scale combat this summer, i have had about 150 african militia 15mm laying around for about 2 years... and my bud impulse-bought some 15mm SAS Assault because they looked damn cool. we may just have to break out a few side games of Africa Coast Rebellion...Force -on-force style. Droves you say? sounds about right...but would that be ordinary droves of dead or the epic body pile you can pose on drove? =)
  9. Reaper Con RPG - Blood For Blood!

    So, is this what is meant by the Karkarion faction special game? Fate of Scynneoa is to be the RPG event? (Cool. if i was going to ReaperCon, these would be me boyos!) i dunno what it is, i've always had a kinly thing with Shark-men...somethign about toothy creatures rising from the crashign waves with death and blood on their mind...and all those teeth... and it gets better if they have corroded/ancient-looking asiatic weaponry...a Guan dao or No-dachi in shark hands... (/dream) so, can we expect cool miniatures? we do have 3 weresharks in the catalogue...and i have yet to convert my be-glaived Weresharkman...
  10. I hate asking about non-reaper figs here...but...

    Oh, BTW, i have actually run a dialogue with the owner of Valiant: says that they get what they can. it's about either finding and owning the green, or getting very fresh molds of past prodcutions. from what i understand Reaper has helped him out as much as possible, but some mini's are just hard to get... i am kinda shocked they found all 4 dragons...supposedly they have banners they can use but no actual miniature for the Moto...odd!
  11. "Son, i am dissapoint..."

    Force on Force!! heck yes! i have the book, but if i find somethign cool, my problem is to find people who aren't just slaves to the popular fantasy games grind. i have been waiting for Bush Wars, though i've considered the others very carefully. ...and is it me, or does the game require a setting book or either players with hard research on what X country's standard platoon would be rated? FoW has me. i'm looking forward to fightign the new powered-up americans, and i seek more battles in Mid War...the schnellsquadron Stg44's call me more than volkgrenadiers... .... so, yeah, enough posting. i have mini's to paint, money to make, and auctions to win!
  12. Bones You'd Like To See

    a single phrase: ARMY PACKS!!!!! i'm not saying reprint your old army packs, no (err, mebbe some of them). i'm saying multiples of the little guys. the Kobolds have my attention. Multipacks of "Bones" Amazons, Archers, Men of Malvernis and Black Legion (heck yeah!) can be added to the request of 'dude, can i have, like, a hundred orcs in one pack? killer!...." if anything can be taken from this thread: a) make big expensive heavy guys as bones b) make multipacks i can pay for metal heroes. but i want ARMIES.....
  13. ...i show up to me ol' stomping grounds after all this time, and...i find myself looking at a single post about zombies... (the russian commisar restrains from weeping) so, i am just gonna be social about it. if this is to be taken as a good sign, we are actually out there playing games as opposed to posting here, eh? if so, what are we playing, crew? i have actually been hitting up the ol' Samurai Swords/Shogun box game: i bought an additional box (not the new Ikusa) and have gone forth to prove my strategic skill now that i have replacement pieces. Flames of War occupies a lot of my time, but with 3rd ed. out, people are a bit shifty on getting a game or two... (Early War...there is a full basket of worms there! and my DAK have yet to see a win...) I'm still looking into ACW, but only because i found a second player! (Original player moved away, sadly!) am still working on a playable Air Combat game, but as my life has gotten busy, i have less time... i've picked up Force on Force by Ambush Alley/Osprey, and i hear they are coming out with their wars in africa book this summer. oh, fun with african militias! (it takes two read-throught to get the idea, but all in all i like this game.) enjoy rolling dice!
  14. hello, it's been a awhile. although i've bought plentiful Reaper Miniatures, and i enjoy how ubiquitously available they are across the miniatures world, this forum has some good people on it with some good coverage. so i have to ask about non-Reaper stuff that has apparently gone the way of the dodo...that i want with enough desire to end worlds. so i ask if you have seen or heard if certain mini's are hiding in a corner or are otherwise gone to history, do tell!! AEG Clan War, Shadowlands faction: Lost Moto: should have 2 skeletal horsemen w/ sashimono banner per blister, used to run about 12 USD... Images: http://www.collecting-citadel-miniatures.com/olley/index.php/File:Shadowlands_Lost_Moto_1.jpg http://www.collecting-citadel-miniatures.com/olley/index.php/File:Shadowlands_Lost_Moto_2.jpg i need about 5, i could use about 12, i'd want about 20 or so... i already found the blister with the Undead Horseman general...i just need access to some troops. message me, if you see these, please! much grace and infinite thank you!!!
  15. hey, all a' ya... i have been asked about wargamming as it applies to ACW...i guess the ACW fan crowd extends past wargamming, so...in lieu of having to convert the popular system around here into an ACW game, might i have some personal opinion on really good ACW systems? i'd like 15mm/6mm compatible over 28mm by far. overly rules-manual intensive is out, but so are 3 page wonders. so, if i may ask...?
