    Ahoy, Canada!!

    I think that would depend on whether or not a moose once bit his sister-in-law.

    Ahoy, Canada!!

    I’ve been with Telus for a longtime. They’re one of the Big 3 providers up here. So far nothing horrible has happened. Thats as much of a recommendation I can give you. The other two big providers would be Rogers and Bell. Smaller providers would be Fido and Koodo. I’m sure there are others.

    Okay. Confession time. We tell everyone it never stops raining in Vancouver to keep more people from moving here. Of course now that you’re here you’ve discovered the truth... NO RAIN!!! Vancouver is always warm and sunny. Well... at least until the rainy (nudge nudge) season (wink wink) gets here anyway (say no more, say no more).

    Today and tomorrow are said to be the worst. Should clear a bit after that and I even heard one forecaster mention possibility of rain in the long term forecast.

    Ahoy, Canada!!

    Most of the places I suggested have great stuff for wearing around the city or even for day hikes like up the Northshore Mountains. However if you need serious equipement for potential survival situations then MEC is definitely the place to go. Their staff is very experienced and knowledgeable and they sell top notch clothing and equipement.

    Ahoy, Canada!!

    Affordable is going to be the tricky part. You’ll want something waterproof and breathable, or you’ll be hot and sweaty in our normally mild temperatures. Mountain Warehouse has locations in many of the malls. Try them for footwear and jackets. A favourite of mine is the Columbia Outlet store in the Richmond Outlet mall out by the Vancouver airport. I’ve had luck there finding affordable jackets. Marks is known for their workwear and outdoor wear at reasonable prices. There’s locations all over Vancouver. MEC, Mountain Equipement Co-Op, has high quality outdoor wear. But their prices reflect that.

    Been there and got the tankard! Yep, you’ll definitely need a vehicle to get to Imperial and Toy Traders, but both places are well worth the drive. And just fyi. This grey sunless Smokey sky and unearthly lighting is NOT norm for Vancouver. We are currently experiencing technical difficulties with our inland forests burning down. Our normally grey skies usually have heavy amounts of rain dropping out of them.

    Ahoy, Canada!!

    Welcome to Canada! The only country to have a coin of the Queen with a bare bear behind! And congrats on that Masters thingy you did! If you ever find yourself in the greater Vancouver area, you need to check out: Imperial Hobbies in Richmond. Strategy Games in Vancouver. Toy Traders in Langley if you like toys & collectibles and want to be wowed.
  9. While I was on vacation I picked up a couple more vehicles for my The Walking Dead games. Cause really, who else would you go to for help during the zombie apocalypse. Mantics zombie minis and Sir Forscale shown for scale.

    The Caravan by JoeK Minis

    This looks like a fun quirky boutique piece. Pigs and Dwarves! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1113411001/the-caravan?ref=project_build

    MenhirGames: 28mm plastic set "Dark Age Outpost"

    Are you saying mostly dead, which is slightly alive, or all dead which, well, there’s only one thing to do if it’s all dead.

    Gangfight Skirmish Game System

    Same here. Backed previous kickstarters of the minis, never for the rulebook.

    Gangfight Skirmish Game System

    Ended up going for an early bird too. Ive backed for their minis only in previous kickstarters. Might add on the Western rulebook too. I like the supplements they have planned, though I hope they do something for Pulp adventures too.

    Gangfight Skirmish Game System

    Will be keeping an eye on this.

    Trolls & Goblins

    Received my two trolls earlier today. Very nicely detailed sculpting and the casting is very clean. If anyone else here backed but is still waiting for their minis speak up now or I’ll be locking this thread down soon as Completed.
  16. Still trying to catch up with all the goings-on, but I received my minis the day after I got back from holidays. Very nice sculpts and castings. I’m well pleased. Anyone here still waiting for theirs?

    Limbo: Eternal War - June 2018

    This is beginning to remind me of the recent Overturn Risining Sands kickstarter where it turned out it was a Canadian kickstarter in name only as everyone involved was in Pakistan.
  18. Darsc Zacal


    It’s not a bad giant sculpt, but to me it’s not a real standout either, even with the alternate head and arm pieces in the stretch goals. The other minis strike me as just okay too. Not willing to spend that kind of money on “just okay”.

    Another Grenadier dragon (I think)

    It is! A pic of mine, painted in the ‘80’s and it’s original box, is in the spoiler below.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    I feel like we’re straying from the original topic...

    The Future of Metal

    I see a future where metal, resins, and all the kinds of plastics, live together in peace and harmony. Its a beautiful world and one I intend to own a large part of.

    Feral Elves by Westfalia

    A new kickstarter from the folks at Westfalia coming in August. An interesting and somewhat different take on elves.

    Your Kickstarter list. How you doing?

    Yep... Well for the comics anyway. A different company had the rights for the tv show, but their minis and game didn’t turn out so well. Thats why your comment had me confuzzled.

    Your Kickstarter list. How you doing?

    I’m not backing any LIVE projects at the moment but I have a bunch of FUNDED kickstarters I’m waiting on to fulfill. Other than the usual suspects, like Oathsworn or Bob Naismiths next OverRunner project, I don’t have much on my KS radar coming up. What project is this?
