Dead Sexy and seen in Lansing

I seem to have appalling luck when it comes to scheduling games. I ran a game in the afternoon session at Spartacon, and missed the previously shown Congo game as well as the Russo-Japanese game featuring these breathtakingly beautiful models.  I didn't even get a chance to speak with the GM as to the source of the models, I understood from others that a good many were the old Houston's Ships products but I cannot say for sure. All I can do is give credit to the gentleman that spent the hours making these so very lovely! Kudos!!!

Congo 1963 as seen at Spartacon 2014

     I saw this game in passing only as I was busy running a game at the same time, it looked so extraordinarily nice that I almost cancelled my game to join in (but that would have been exceedingly poor form!), Rich Uncle Pat and Kris both played and hopefully they can provide some commentary. There clearly was a LOT going on in the game. The terrain and models were lovely and I understand that the game was presented by the redoubtable pair of Bob Beattie and Son. I would hope that R.U.P.  or Kris will be able to provide commentary to go with the photos.

Perry Brothers American Revolutionary War figs with paint

    A while back a buddy of mine asked me to build some of the Perry Bros AWI figures for him, he has sent me a photo of them in paint. I must say they look very nice.

Something that I picked up at Spartacon

Old-timers like me can remember when you could fit a copy of Steve Jackson's "Ogre" game in your shirt pocket; not so with this little beauty. weighing in at about thirty pounds and a couple of feet on a side the latest iteration of the classic game takes things to a whole new level. I will have more later we get around to opening it up and playing it (that is if we don't decide to sell it on eBay).
