Imperoal Skies Has Arrived

The rewards for my support for this project arrived in the post yesterday. I received the rules and look forward to reading them over the weekend and getting my painted figures out. I also have a few ships and bits coming from this Kickstarter.

As I do love Victorian SciFi I can see this getting bumped up on the projects list. Anyone else taking the plunge?

There are many miniatures that gamers will buy, but have little chance to see on the table regularly. I think of the German Panzer VIII Maus. Not really suited in any game unless it is an objective.

We also have over buying. What is the acceptable limit of American Pershings, and German King Tigers and all of the limited production runs on hunting animals like Jagdpanthers and Jagdtigers. Yet most World War II gamers will have these at the ready. Maybe needed for Flames of War but what about more respectable platoon level games like Chain of Command that has been released in recent years? For me I even have the guilty secret of having Brummbär that I have not used. Ok, not that bad of a secret.

So as I am trying to go over things that I need to finish up I found a campaign system that I was working on for early Cold War naval battles based on the period of post war conversions for submarines and the early nuclear boats. What can I say I have a think for the Skipjacks. So please follow along as I work on playtests, rules and more importantly, where do you find these models.

An Uptick

In the past week my blog has seen over 900 hits from Russia and another 94 from Mauritius. That is more than from my home country of the United States. If you are from Russia or Mauritius welcome there is a great deal here dealing with Russian/Soviet weapon system.

As for Mauritius, need to do a little research. If nothing else the flags are colorful.

Star Trek Returns

OK so thnis is a piggy back off of Meeples and Miniatures site but this is to important to miss. Modiphius is to release a Star Trek RPG and for me this may get me back to playing these types of games. Miniatures look to be from the original series and that is a huge plus. More on this as I find out additional information.
