BOSS SHOP: BSG CUSTOM DICE PROJECT!

I love most of what I know about ARES BATTLESTAR GALACTICA SSB... but that Dam-FFG has got me to love Custom Iconic Dice! So now that I am in love with ARES BSG too... I have to cross the streams and make my own cool little BSG Universe Dice!


So far I am getting the icons to look cool, but it has been a little bit of an effort. I needed to upload many versions of my art to the BGM Dice app, to get everything looking clean and centered on the di-faces. I am happy with these test uploads and now I just need to tweak a few more details to finalize the project.


I am going to make these dice in January. I want to spend some time with the actual BSG SSB Game and make sure that I like my ideas for how the Hero Dice are going to work. It is going to be very cool to have these unique dice sets in my BSG Games!

See you in January!

COLLECTION DIARY: NOVEMBER 2018

I am having a Wonderful Holiday and I hope all of my B6*R7 Fliers are too!


It is a great pleasure to continue my BATTLESTAR GALACTICA Universe Collection! I have played these starship battle games for years and never used a laser line. The cool thematic complexity of maneuvering in BSG SSB with it's tight firing arcs has inspired me to finally buy a cute little grade-A laser thing-a-jig. With the exception of HEAVY METAL Magazine I have not bought any comics in years but now I am enjoying that hobby again too with BSG graphic novels.


My rediscovering of The Battlestar Universe has made me very happy, as it is one of my childhood friends! I have washed away the negativity that had been growing in my mind over the last two years with Star Wars too! I am having with BSG! I even reread some of the beloved old BERSERKER WAR novels which is of course where Glen Larson got most of the inspiration to make BSG 1978 to begin with. I am so happy of late that I even bought of bunch of STAR WARS Expansions from dirty ole FFG again... lol... but XW2 can wait!


Very Happy Collecting Boss out!
