Konflikt 47 Resurgence

Just received the Konflikt 47 Resurgence Rule book.  Looks really nice.  They are introducing Japanese and Finish armies.

I don't have any of the 28mm figures, but I do own several of the Clockwork Goblin 15mm figures, which are essentially scaled down version of the 28s.

Here is a good review of the ruleset

Here are some of the upcoming Japanese units

Dystopian Wars Spartan Games Closes

With Spartan Games closing shop it is interesting seeing how much people are paying for their last Kickstarter figures.

$610 dollars for a figure set.  Really...really.  Obviously there is still demand for Dystopian Wars, at least  on Ebay.

If you are thinking about picking up a miniature line, Dystopian Wars might not be a bad move.  The figures are super cool, they have a ton of detail and look great.

I am actually surprised that Spartan Games couldn't pull this off.  I guess having so many different figures and such can take up a lot of resources.  Still I think if they had made a better ruleset for their figures, they would still be in business.

Gear Krieg

Back in 2013 Dream Pod 9 discontinued their weird war line called Gear Krieg.  It's a shame really, the vehicles had cool designs that oozed weird war, but IMO their pricing scheme, lack of variety and the fact that they were all metal just didn't appeal to many players who like doing plastic or resin conversions.  I never played the Gear Krieg rule system, but the artwork always looked pretty slick. 

The models fit in really well with Clockwork Goblin Miniatures, Battlefront - Flames of War and Forged In Battle.

Star Wars Armada

I had this space station and death star hanging around my miniature collection for years. Anyone know who made them?

Going Star Wars X-Wing

So I have been a little Star Wars crazy this past month.

I have gotten into Star Wars Destiny, Star Wars Armada, Star Wars Imperial Assault and also Star Wars X-Wing.

OK to be honest I haven't played Imperial Assault or Armada, but I have a huge fleet of Armada arriving on Wednesday.  I found a deal I couldn't pass up.  My B-Day is next month and I already requested Imperial Assault as a potential gift.

As a gamer, I am always trading/selling stuff I used to be into and now am not.

A good example is Warmachine.  When it was first released I absolutely loved the game.  A few jacks and a single figure controlling them was a ton of fun.  Then things started to get expensive.  Privateer press started adding in all sorts of infantry and then larger and larger Jacks.  At some point, I just gave up.

I see people play all the time, but it just hasn't appealed to me.

Then came my Star Wars obsession.  I saw Star Wars when it was first released back in the 70's and have always been a fan.  Sometimes more, sometimes less.

For the past few months I have been playing Star Wars Destiny and really love the game.  Of course to get the good cards can be quite expensive.  Still for now at least I don't mind the cost.  I figure if I really get bored I can always sell the cards/dice on ebay and recoup some of my money.

After playing Destiny of course I have to get into some of the other Fantasy Flight offerings, thus X-Wing, Armada, and Imperial Assault.

Below are just some of my Warmachine figures I am hoping to trade for some X-Wing.  I am posting them up on Bartertown and see if I get any bites.

Ral Partha 15mm Fantasy 1979

So I was digging through my miniatures and came across some I picked up in 1979. This range was present in the 1980 and 1982 catalogs. Dennis Mize was credited as the sculptor.

They came from Ral Partha's Armies Of Myth and Legend.

Rogue Trader Games Workshop Space marines

Been painting up my Rogue Trader Space marines.  Love the old school look.  They have been based on the new 32mm GW bases.

I decided to use various metallics for the paint scheme.  To me this brings out the character of the miniatures.
