ROGUE PLANET cover preview

Curious about the game mechanics but I’m loving the cover art.

I thought that I would give everyone a sneak peek of the cover for my soon-to-be released sci-fantasy skirmish game ROGUE PLANET. The final edits are being finished up as I type this. So get your plasma blasters, powered fists, and over-sized great swords ready for action and, let the observations, speculations, and questions commence!

War is coming to Drop City.

Jealous of their power over the planet and their monopoly on the cerebral-enhancer Clar1ty, the Orbital Corporations are moving to stamp out any hint of rebellion. Seeb and her boyfriend Vasyl, along with Detectives Natesh and Cooper, are heading deeper into the dark heart of their conspiracy. Here are more snapshots from the crossfire.

Enjoy.

Wargame classes?

I’ve mentioned previously that many years ago when my eldest was in middle school, I had the opportunity to teach ‘Military Miniatures and Table Top Gaming’ as part of an after-school enrichment program in local school system. I thought the war-toys would be a pariah, but to my surprise the response was so overwhelming from both administration and students I went on offer classes twice a week in two schools for four years. And opened up a Gaming room next to my then commercially-located studio/store in downtown Hyannis.

I had a good run. Not only did I get paid to play with toy soldiers, but I meet lots of good folks, good parents, dealt with good kids who went on to be great young adults. Alas, eventually the kids graduated, the school budget shrank, and I went back to the occasional game night with my contemporaries. The world turns.

Recently however, I received a surprise: an invitation to be a part of the after-school program at a local private school. (I know someone who knows someone who told them about what I used to do…it’s all very arcane.) In fact tomorrow, the project coordinator is coming over to get specifics and discuss the curriculum. So, here’s to the chance to invest in the community and hopefully impart a love of toy soldiers into some kids. Wish me luck.

I’m leaving up our recent WW II set up by way of example. Here’s some shots:

Gator Team: Pig Iron MOUT force

As promised, shots of my latest ‘skirmish set’: two squads, FAT-Man Exo suits (Full Armor- Tactical) and IFV transport. (courtesy of Old Crow) Re-watching the battle scene in Ralph Feinnes’ ‘Coriolanus’ inspired me to try Urban Camo. Still hunting for a suitable gun-sled drone to round this set out. I’m thinking the upcoming Khurasan grav-stuff might fill the bill.
