More Proxying Fun: Ars Victor with MechWarrior Minis, Part 1

Late last year I picked up Ars Victor and immediately saw the potential for more Hybrid Gaming: the unholy union of a boardgame with miniatures!

There was plenty of info and buzz surrounding this game so I had to give it a try

All set to play. Got the plexi to keep things flat and grabbed
whatever mini I had to proxy with and on we go...

This 15mm figure is a recent acquisition from the last gaming
convention I attended. Again, I don't know the manufacturer.
It was cool looking, cheap and prepainted - what's not to like?

MechWarrior clix (10mm) removed from bases will be perfect
for proxying these Heavy Infantry Units

There are enough RR tracks here to choke a horse

My Favorite Martians: Tripods, Part 1

EUREKA! Literally. After a long search for just the right mini to represent a Martian Tripod for use on a conversion of a fan generated special scenario for LnL's World at War Board game series, "To Save a Life", I found these super cool tripods from EUREKA Games.

As I've mentioned in my past blog posts, I've been a loyal fan of LNL Publishing (which has just changed ownership) and Mark L. Walker's game systems: World at War (WaW) and Nations at War (NaW) series and the Lock n Load system for infantry platoons. 

I've been dying to try out this Mars vs Earth (circa mid-1980s) using my micro armor on a Hexon terrain table. Imagine period Warsaw Pact and NATO armor and armament duking it out with the aliens from the Red planet. Earth forces, check. Civilians, check. Civilian cars, check. All that I was lacking were the tripods. And here they be, by golly!

Straight out of the box, these non-painted and
assembled Tripods look great

"Get away from her, you bitch!"

Thunderbolt coming to support

Poor Bloody Infantry gets into the mix

Black Scorpion Pirates, Part 4 DONE

Happy New Year! Looking forward to another year of geeking out with miniature gaming.

OK, Let's get on with it shall we?

On a nice Sunday morning, I laid out some terrain in preparation for some wacky gaming... 

(click on the pic to enlarge)
A peaceful and pastoral village, an amalgamation of scratch built 
cottages, sheds, haystacks, hills and store bought prepainted building 
from Pegasus as well as pre-flocked and painted hill from War Torn Worlds

Lots of terrain to take cover in with a good view of the prepainted 
cottage and wooden fences from Pegasus in the foreground, 
the plowed fields were carpet samples

Kegs and barrels were unpainted from Hobby Lobby (or any craft store)
while the crates and chests were prepainted from War Torn Worlds

From Black Scorpion line, I took a collection of Pirates Rogues and Privateers line, these are one of the best sculpts around IMHO.

I have 6 done and 13 more to go. 
Some of my would-be marauders
Ready for action!
Some infighting to see who gets the rum 
Coming up, my Pirate marauders vs British Napoleonic regulars...
