Insurgent Earth

I’m pleased to announce that Insurgent Earth is finally done. Insurgent Earth is a tabletop war game in which players take the role of survivors in the chaotic days following a massive invasion of Earth by an advanced alien civilization. In Insurgent Earth, the players are not Generals or Admirals, Presidents or Prime Ministers, they’re […]

Recent Brushwork – pt. 2

Our weekly group is getting ready to try the sci-fi, transhuman RPG Eclipse Phase 2.0 , so I slapped color on a bunch of Privateer Press’ Warcaster Neo-Mechanika miniatures to use as character and major NPC figs. I don’t play W N-M, or any PP games for that matter, and there doesn’t seem to be […]

Recent Brushwork

Lots of things going on in life, in the world. “Juggling” may be a life skill but miniature painting centers me. For that alone, I don’t do it often enough. I have managed to get color on a few figs though. Mostly assembly line/speed paint jobs, but it gets minis on the table, so I’m […]

A TANGLED WEB The once-a-month group met last Saturday for part three of their Nightwatch adventure. Play testing some simple RPG rules, I incorporated a little ‘theater of the mind’ narrative scenario in the first half of the session before the inevitable combat.

The Rowville Run

AN INSURGENT EARTH AAR Rowville… a nice town. A quiet town. A good place to raise your kids. Its Main Street was sprinkled with quaint, Mom-n-Pop shops, a Big-n-Juicy Burgers, Sweet Tooths ice cream, one of those shiny aluminum, all-night diners with the neon tube signs, tidy offices for the Sherrif, the PTA, and the […]

The Slog

Wife and I finally got Covid. (Happy Easter, eh?) I’m on the mend but it really took the wind out of my sails. After-effects are hanging on. On a positive note, it looks like there’s another Osprey rule book in my future. So that’s cool. More info on that story as it unfolds.

The Mertvyy District Run

A Zona Alfa-Kontraband mission Cape Cod Wargaming hit ‘pause’ on our current 5e campaign while John S recovered from surgery. (we had just broken through a magically sealed door to disturb what looked like a mini Beholder and we will need John’s Half-Elf Fighter) So the thrilling tales of five homicidal dirt muppets will continue […]

The Tomb of Alrik Steelheart

A NIGHTWATCH Adventure Had the privilege of running a large game of Nightwatch on Saturday afternoon. Five, first-time players gathered to search the Wildlands for clues to location of the long, lost Tomb of Alrik Steelheart. All teachers from the History department of a local International Baccalaureate Charter school, it was more a good excuse […]
