    What about CAV Strike Operations?  Bones Kickstarters are continuing and it is ramping up interest for the game again since you can now build a force very, very cheaply.


    There are reasons I don't play CAV:SO, but to be polite I'll leave it at "I don't like it."

    @Boaz  have you researched DBA or Hordes of the Things ?  They were a last century attempt to create rules that were model independent. 


    I think they are mired in the D6 though. 

    I've looked into them, still looking. :)

    Happened to me about a week or two ago.  Luckily I'm not in a secure building so I can still use my phone.

    I can't bring mine inside... :(

    Man, if they ever do this to me at my work, its gonna be rough. I mean, I might have to actually work throughout the entire. Who wants to do that?


    And please, that is not meant as being directed at OP, I always hate it when one of my websites I like to browse suddenly hits the firewall block at work. :(



    Oh, no worries. Some of my days are busy like today and I only get to check at lunch, other days we have nothing going on.

    Funny thing is, I can still get to the store...just not the forum.

  3. They blocked this forum at work.


    Been busy runnin' kids around, goin' out on the kayak, fixin' the house, and other things.


    Hobby wise I have been using some plans I found for some 28mm platform kits and hot a little more paint on my Space Marines.


    Hopefully I'll do a better job of remembering to check here in the evenings.

  4. The perfect game doesn't exist. Each player has their likes and dislikes. Heck, even designers keep fiddling with their own rules because they just aren't quite right yet (in their mind).


    Me? I prefer open games with point systems, but have several games with dedicated model lines, because sometimes you have to play what everyone else is to get a game. I have been on the hunt for THE mecha game since CAV2 went the way of the dust bin.  I have also started on my own rules.  The same for my 15mm stuff. And for 28mm sci-fi skirmish.

    Question, April 25: How many pairs of shoes is too many and how close to that limit are you?

    Four.  I'm over it, but the reason is that a lot of them are for specific uses like my aqua socks/water shoes or over the ankle boots for the motorcycle.  It also took me a while to settle on a style of shoe I liked to wear to work after I retired from the military, so some are left over from that process.

     I would use that. 

    I have several things I would use that on, and several more I would invent reasons to use it on.

    Question, April 24: Have you ever taken any self-defense or combat arts courses?e

    I studied Goju-Ryu as a kid and later during high school.  Don't remember a whole lot of it, just the basic punch, kick, and block.  I might be able to perform the first kata I learned, but I doubt it would be very pretty.

    Then there was Basic Combat Training.  Aside from the obvious firearms training with better equipment than the Daisy bolt-action .22LR I had growing up, I also learned what makes the  green grass grow*.  Back then they didn't teach combatives to the POGs like us.


    *For the unfamiliar, that phrase was part of a call/response sequence used during bayonet training.

    They do however seem to be great swim trunks, and not abnormal for normal swimming purposes. 

    They are quite comfortable. Wore them kayaking yesterday.  The funny part is that when I was in the store I was actually torn between three different patterns, each awesome in their own way.  So I asked a couple college aged girls in the area which pair they would be most embarrassed to see their Dad wearing in public.  These were what they picked under that criteria.

    Clearly you don't live in California. I have memories of my dad going to work in Silicon Valley wearing a Hawaiian button-down with torn jeans, a fleece penguin vest, and socks with sandals. He was a semiconductors manager at the time. Then again, this was also the work group that had a themed group Halloween costume set, and they made him be Dorothy for the Wizard of Oz bunch. 

    I do not.  This was mostly to play on that Dad stereotype.

    For those assembling, do you assemble prior to painting?

    Depends on the model.  For the smaller ones, yes.  For the larger ones I partially assemble.  I put the legs and bases together and the torsos and arms, then paint separately.  With Bones I'm contemplating leaving the torsos unglued to facilitate dramatic in-game positioning since they do have a tighter fit than the old metal models.

    I've only started assembling mine, and I picked up a little bit of each of the old sculpts.  So far I have assembled one each of Chancellor, Wyvern, Bishop, and Ogre; four Manticores; and two Lynx (Lynxes, Lynxi, Lynxseses?).


    And I'm probably going to need to cut more bases.

    Question, April 23: If there was a paint color named after you... What would it be named?? (obviously, Griffon Grey is taken ^_^ )

    "Senior NCO Soul" which would really just be a small bottle of Vantablack.  What would most likely be named after me would be some kind of berry color due to my first name. <_<

    Weekend Questions, April 20-21-22: What has happened to you recently that has pushed a life goal farther away (big or small) or just some little thing (setback) that unimproved your SitRep?


    Bonus question: how are you gonna fix it?

    Had a bit of a sewage problem in that one of the toilets overflowed which necessitated a purchase of the cheapest carpet I could get as a temporary fix as there was no saving the old one.  This has resulted in me pushing forward the time table for a much larger, and far more expensive, project redoing the living room that was going to involve the same patch of carpet since they were the same.  This will result in a delay of unknown length regarding my intent to purchase a kayak as funds and time will be unavailable for a while.  There really isn't a "fix" with regards to the kayak purchase, unless I come into a relatively sizable amount of money.  In the interim, now that the water should be warm enough I'll just rent the things at $5/hour.
