28mm Zepplin anyone..

Found this amazing Zeppelin in 28mm.   This would be great for In her majesty service.   Crossover Games has a kickstarter for a 28mm scale MDF Zeppelin kit. The model is the bottom half of the Zepplein, it is 73” long and comes in four modular sections. Perfect for Great War spy, Pulp and Superhero gaming.  Kickstarter linkZeppelin

Stream tractor anyone for The Men who would kings.

On the face book page The Men who would be kings I found this.  Yes an Armor stream tractor that was used for the Boer Wars....   Maybe next month I will add this to my British forces..  Second Boer war could be very interesting.

My British Troops arrived from the Warstore.

This my troops for upcoming campaign arrived.   Warstore carries Perry Brother miniatures in stock. This is bad for me, why because it is just a order click away.  Also in the mail is a package from Brigade miniatures.  They carry Artizian miniature that I need.  As I paint these new Brits.  There will be an order for the Pulp Fiction and In her majesty service figures.    Below you will my new toys....  One does need the Black watch for any great battle...

The men who would be Kings rule set.

 I had pre-ordered these rules back in July.  They arrived in the post just before I left for vacation.  Basically I had a quick for at the rules.  In some ways the play is similar to Blood Eagle and Daisho.  These rules are what my current interest is in. Basically because I have the figures already purchased.

   I think these rules can be pushed into the Pulp fiction era.   So 1930 at the tops.  A little of Indiana Jones type of game play.   I your interested there is a Face Book page for the rule set.The Men who would be Kings

The author post on the link below.  The Dux Rampant Forum.  Scroll down a little ways to find the correct forum.

Daisho Samurai and more. Aly Morrison Citadel figures.

 Digging through my lead pile I discover my Japanese Samurai.    These poor figures have not seen the light day since about 1992.  Wow 24 years they lay hidden away in my Oriental D & D box.  Back then my children were in their teens.  Now 40 & 36!  We played Oriental D & D with a small group of friends.   It was an exciting group and good times.  But like most group the older player left for college. Only to be married, than move far away.  Some of my figures are painted. Others are in white primer....   I could hear them, " Lets start a new adventure" they whispered.   Warrior of Daisho are raising to battle again.

Here are the pictures. Surprisingly Foundry still make them...      Here is  look from Foundry's Catalog.

  These are still great figures.....
