COLLECTION DIARY: FEBRUARY 2019

This month I got busy finding the best models for BATTLESTAR BERSERK and started building the actual armies. I now have the models to play some cool characters: leading squads of troops, with special upgrades, for the Colonials and Cylons. I can play some fun games now and test the rules pretty darn good like!


Commander Carlson with Colonial Templars and Techers!


Colonial Warriors and Valkyries!


More Colonial Heroes and special models!


Colonial and Cylon Mechs. Most of these models need to be heavily converted, but they are all going to be cool, and worth the work to make them fit The Battlestar Berserk Universe. I will post work articles soon for each of these Mechs!


The Baltar Twins and their Cylon Infiltrators and Bio Beast!


Baron Baltar and his Cylon Legions!

Happy BSG BERSERK Boss out!

BOSS' BATTLESTAR BERSERK - PROJECT OVERVIEW & PREVIEW ONE


I have loved Fred Saberhagen's BERSERKER SAGA for most of my life and also enjoy it's most popular spin-off franchises: Battlestar Galactica (OLD & NEW) and The Terminator. I decided to make my own Sci-Fi Skirmish game after I began happily collecting Ares BSG SSB Game in late 2018! I am very focused on making BATTLESTAR BERSERK a crazy fun combination of the best elements from these three cool universes! 
Basically I am making a Battlestar Skirmish Game infused with Berserker and Terminator elements to provide a huge amount of diversity that was not possible in the shows and films for practical narrative and financial reasons. I am not constrained by these factors so I can go crazy and make a badass game with everything that I love innit... Babes!

I started this fun little project this year in January. Since then I have had all kinds of fun talking with my friends online as we discussed the merits of several POPS! I have found that the older Funkos look kinda silly, with bowed legs and less detailed sculpting. I have selected the nicer looking modern POPS! where possible for this project. 


All of the human figures I have purchased have good anatomy and technical detail and fit the look of The Battlestar Berserk Universe very nicely indeed.


The Mecha and Robots in general are exempt from the Nicer Looking Modern Funkos standard, because they are machines... and they look great old or new.


Yes... I had to upgrade "Muffit" to "Tuffit"! Tactical-Unit: Find-Infiltrators-(and)Terminate!


I have started to work on the actual game paper too... it is all FUN!


I am using the excellent Deep-Cut Studios Space Hulk 4x4 Mousepad Game Mat for my Technical Environments... it looks wonderful!
More To Come...

FFG ANNOUNCES SABINE AND BOSSK OPERATIVES!


It looks like Legion Wave Four is finishing up with another set of our favorite rouge characters! In Wave Three it was Han and Boba. This time it is Sabine and Bossk! I knew Bossk was comining but I will admit I thought that Sabine would be a part of a full Dirty Half-dozen in the form of a Star Wars REBELS (Show) expansion boxed set.
This is all good! Checkout the coolness in the On The Hunt article!



Notice that both of these models include alternate gear and pose options!


AND to the Dirty Bitches (NOT MY FRIENDS) who tried to kill me when 
I posted that Bossk was coming seven months ago... FUCK... YOU! ☺️
