Recruits Convention this weekend - Spring 2012

I have well documented my love for this gaming convention. The Spring Recruits is this weekend. $5.00 admission if you are not a student. Students are free. Ran by Duane and Laura Fleck. They are the best and they don't get enough credit for single handedly reviving the Con scene in the KC area.

So bring the kids, and spend some time at Lee's Summit High School this wekend for some gaming fun. Can't believe its #19. I think I may have been to all of them. If not its 17 or 18.

On a sadder note, with Ze BAron and My schedules for youth sports we are only goping to be able and participate, but we wont be putting on any games. So the Basement Generals will be there as observers.

A post script to the Jasmine Throne Foreign Batallion

It just hit me that this force from GZG is an incredible fit for the JTFB for vehicles and armor. I have a full compliment of thses for my human Quick Reaction Force, but I may have to buy another set, cause I can't imagine how cool these would look painted white with some blue markings.




A notice, a smile, and a frown

All of you know of my love for Khurusan Miniatures. A simply amazing range of 15mm miniatures that are a must have for 15mm Sci Fi/Post Apoc/Horror/Fantasy gaming. Well hold onto your socks, Jon has just released a huge amount of models for the taking. the story on TMP: http://theminiaturespage.com/news/?id=760283544

and as you all know of my love for his Post Apoc range that ties so beautifully into my Fallout sweetspot, he finally has powered armor and a new Mutant Warboss. This is one sexy fig:

Painted by my favorite 15mm painter out there, Space Jacker, this guy is definately going in my forces.
Nice job Jacker! http://tinysolitarysoldiers.blogspot.com/

The smile? Well that's for all the love that Khurusan has unleased on us. For some reason the Apocalypse makes me feel better.

The frown? Well that's for the Jasmine Throne Foreign Battalion troops that just seem to be lost in Jump Space. Why does that give me a frown? Well this should make you frown, knowing that these wonderful figs are not released yet:



First two pics painted by Space Jacker, rest of the photos are painted by Steve Dean.

And he even did the Not-Harkolons:

Now you know why the frown.

This is the most anticipated 15mm sci fi relaese ever, and I am sure Jon will be buried when he releases them (i will get two of each set).

Good day for 15mm gaming.

Guess I'll keep saving my birthday money.
