COLLECTION DIARY: CHRISTMAS 2017

I HAD A WONDERFUL HOLIDAY AND I HOPE MY B6*R7 FLYERS DID TOO!


I purchased one more round of large Starship models for some diversity in my badass STAR WARS: LEGION Terrain. I think I am good as I can now make a Rebel, Imperial, or Scum & Villainy base look alive with ships parked around buildings!


Interactive terrain elements are a must have for me in this grand adventure. I got some more cool models to build my little gangs in LEGION. Above are Techno Mutants and some Hutt Cartel members with Droids.


More special characters for the Cartel and my Wasteland Scaves which are the people that will ride the dinosaurs you have seen in this Diary and a previous Diary. Legion Models are bigger but these are going to be fine particularly since they will be on buildings and vehicles most of the time... it will all look great on the table.


Special terrain items... The Glory!


I had a very nice WHITE CHRISTMAS!


Happy Holidaze Boss out!

Bandai just posted another preview for the holidays! The first U.N.C.F. Carrier model AAA-3 APOLLO is coming in March 2018! This new model kit has convinced me that with the other recent kits it is time to build an alternate Cosmo BLUE Fleet... I love it!




Yah... I need a BLUE TASK FORCE BABY... in 2018 for sure for sure!

Happy Boss out!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE!

 I hope all of my B6*R7 Flyers are having a very HAPPY HOLIDAY!

STAR WARS: LEGION WAVE ONE IS ON THE WAY...

Fantasy Flight Games updated their Upcoming Page today... STAR WARS: LEGION is on the boat and we can expect it to ship for Spring... if all goes well of course... this is FFG after all.



Getting Ready For Legion Boss out!

WHO IS GOING TO BE OUR FIRST LEGION REBEL HQ EXPANSION?

Now that we know General Veers is going to be our first Imperial HQ Expansion character, I am sure most of us are wondering who is coming for the Rebels. I have made a few pretty good assumptions, and started a poll for these Rebel Heroes.



You may vote for multiple choices, so have fun and lets see who among us is going to get it right. I expect we will know very soon...
I say Leia, Han, or Lando, however I would be happy with any of the characters included in the poll!

WYRD PREVIEWS THEIR NEW DEEP ONE MINIATURES!

WYRD Miniatures has gone full on stealing from HPL mode with their new The Other Side Kickstarter. I love seeing just how important Howard is to the Dark Fantasy & Horror worlds of fiction and gaming... the man was just awesome. I am very happy to see straight-up DEEP ONES being made to such a high quality standard.


Classic DEEP ONE Art!

Sandy Pete and FFG have been doing good work too, but these darned wonderful fish-people have often been loosely interpreted to my eye by most companies, but these new Wyrd models are perfect. I will be getting all of this coolness when it comes out in 2018... hopefully by Halloween!

Happy CREEP Boss out!

REMEMBER THE STAR FORCE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON!

The brave crew of The Yamato, Our Star Blazers, returned home this week in the year 2199. Their year long mission saved the Earth. As we enter the height of the holiday season with the Twelve Days of Christmas I am going to be thinking about what The Star Force, did for us!



 On December 8 2199 Mankind is saved by The Star Force!

"Miracles Don't Just Happen...We Need To Make Them Happen!"

Thank You Star Force!

Boss out!

FFG PREVIEWS THE LEGION GAME MECHANIC: COMMAND!

I like this. It seems to reward thematic play, for Imperials. The thing is that taking and holding Objectives is more important than simply killing the enemy in most cases, so this is a cool mechanic in my view. Storm Troopers filing in to secure an area is right out of the stories! Check the full info in the Orders From High Command article!



Keep up the great work Fantasy Flight!

Happy Imperial Boss out!

X-WING WAVE THIRTEEN EXPANSION ARTICLES AND RELEASE DATE!

FFG waited right up to the final weeks before The Last Jedi to post their glorious Resistance Bomber and TIE Silencer preview articles! I like that Fantasy Flight closed the wonderful Autumn Holiday with these ships. Check out the coolness gang, these are both awesome expansions!






Fantasy Flight Games posted an update today to their Upcoming category showing that the whole of Waves XII and XIII are shipping now with a street date of 12/7/2017... MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Happy Boss out!

COLLECTION DIARY: NOVEMBER 2017

This month I picked up a few more very nice STAR WARS Vehicles for LEGION! I am going to house rule some of these babies into the game and others are for more super cool scenario driving terrain. I now have just about all of the in scale and close to scale toys and models that I want. I double checked some info on the Hasbro U-Wing and Revell T-70 X-Wing and will add them to the collection, but I think I'm just about done... unless something new is released.


I am building some cool citizens for my LEGION Terrain too, and thus i have been picking up odd bits to do some conversion modeling. The 40K Rust-critters are going to be fun to use for cyber types for sure. I have also grabbed some nice building bits that i have seen some other inspired Legioners using to build their structures. I need to get some more stuff yet... of course. The joice to use some ridiculous GW kits required me to buy some new mini tweezers; oh you guys are "'Evay all right!"
That in scale Escape Pod is just about magnificent!


Happy Getting Ready For Legion Boss out!

HAPPY AUTUMN HOLIDAY AND MANY THANKSGIVINGS!




Winter is coming. I hope everyone had a great Autumn!

Happy Boss out!
