Other Miniatures – Bloody Broadsides

I started another page for the miniatures I game with beyond ECW. First up is Bloody Broadsides – a Napoleonic naval game by Portsmouth Miniatures.

Posted are some pictures of my newly finished Dutch fleet for this game. Also have some pirates (for a scenario I am working on) currently in the dockyard being worked on.

VWQ coming to Knight Watch in San Antonio

Yes, at the nice invitation of TableTop Generals, I will be hosting a Victory Without Quarter participation game at Knight Watch game store in San Antonio, Tx on Sunday, Dec, 11th. Rules will be taught (they are available free online, see my LINK on where to get them), and all figures, dice, terrain, etc will be provided.

I will be doing a different scenario than the Battle of Beacon Hill I have run so often recently. Perhaps the Royalist can actually make a saving throw!

More information will become available as soon as I have more exacting times from the Knight Watch/TableTop Generals folk. Stay tuned!

MilleniumCon 19 – A great time!

Had a great time at MCon 19. Super bunch of guys and gals all having fun together. Was an honor to meet and game with you all.
Big round of applause for Charles, Martin, Ian, and Mark (of the Lone Star Historical Miniatures group) for all the work they did on a great run con! Kudos and o7.
Huge shout out to the guys at Warlord Games for their support/encouragement in running my Victory Without Quarter (VWQ) games. Jon, loved the kilt!
Thanks to all the gamers who came and tried out Victory Without Quarter! Hope you had as much fun as I did. And for the Royalist – there seems to be something wrong with their troop’s morale this weekend – better luck next time.
Another shout out to TableTop Generals and a BOLO for their upcoming game day in San Antonio. I will be running a VWQ game for this event. Watch for their info on that soon.
Last, but not least, the guy going to gather in more of my lucrative (if quickly diminishing) convention mad money – Jeff Hunt of Portsmouth Miniatures. Great time playing Bloody Broadsides. Beware, lads, the Dutch are coming over the horizon!
Sorry for by abrupt departure this morning due to overnight illness  But made it home ok .
Until next time game mates – PLAY MORE GAMES! o7

New Baccus ECW masters revealed!

Baccus Miniatures in the UK today released pictures of their new 6mm ECW musketeers. The level of detail is fantastic! To get a look at the new masters, take a look using the following link at Baccus Miniatures.

According to the pre-release info, the minis will have more hat options allowing them to be used for both ECW and 30 Years War. Wootness for 6mm gamers!

New LSHM Pike and Shotte Group Forming

For those who don’t know, I am a member of the Lone Star Historical Miniatures group, a Texas based club supporting historical miniature gaming. While they also play sci-fi and fantasy games, the main goal is to encourage historical gaming. These are a great bunch of guys and gals who game to have fun.

Among the LHSM members, there has been a growing interest in the Pike and Shotte era (which I’m all for – duh!), especially with the release of the new Warlord Games miniatures for the era for the eastern area of conflict during the 30 Years War.¬† After some discussions on email, there has been a decision by the interested members to form a sub-group of LHSM members¬† interested Pike and Shotte era gamers (similar to the Bolt Action group).

So for those attending Millennium Con 19, there will be a gathering sometime during it to discuss suggested rules, etc, so folks can start gathering their armies for next season’s campaigns. Will advise on the time/place when that info becomes available.
