    I have been asked to start another modern game, I will be using Ivan’s Fivecore Company Command rules and 15mm figures to game it. It will be a sorta kinda a continuation of Oil Pumping Station Zebra  set in my Imagi-nation , The Sultanate Of Ifat. I am busy painting and basing up more figures for it, and will try to post pics of the action on my Facebook page.

    Col Sokolove will battle Bongo Haram and who know the French maybe out there.

    In 15mm, you can probably get away with just 3 figures per base.

    I’ll be using the FOW small bases..I have tons of them and can base 1,2 or 3 figures on them.

    Well, hurry up then, we’re finally getting somewhere!!! 😉

    I worked on some figures today, but no @#$%ing games.  I’ll look to remedy that tomorrow.  I hope.  Real life can really suck sometimes, I’ve had  a lot going on recently, though this evening was a labor of love (Daddy-Daughter dance).

    V/R,

    Sure Just Jack, I’ll just use unpainted figures …so yall can make fun of me….besides how crappy that would look after War Panda’s gamer porn… But I understand real life I had my grand daughter Paige’s 10th birthday party here at the house today. 10 girls and parents had me busting my tired old butt all day. Paige liked her Cowgirl boots her old PaPa got her.  I did however base and prime some figures while I was at it.

    Soon Yall….

    Col Sokolove will find Mistress Elvira !!!

    Spray painted counts as painted ??? Right??  Snort doing washes and terraining bases.  Oh and I picked up a little black and white bear…. War Panda will be pleased.  Oh and don’t worry Just Jack I still have the goats.

    Judging from my time playing Warhammer back in the day, spray painting totally counts 🙂

    Got any coke cans and you’re good for terrain as well.

    I guess I could go buy some diet cokes for terrain…….But Just Jack and War Panda would point and laff at me….

    Get some carpet and Jack will be happy 🙂 As for Panda, I am convinced he’s just taking actual war zone photo’s and tweaking them to look like toy soldiers.

    We want Mistress Elvira’s! We want Mistress Elvira’s! We want Mistress Elvira’s! We want Mistress Elvira’s! We want Mistress Elvira’s! We want Mistress Elvira’s!

    The thronging masses must be satisfied. Bread and games! We want weapons of mass distraction and we want them now! Goooooo Koyoteblue! Give us war; give us sexual titilation and deliver it now. Adopt a just in time production mode and get the laddies done.

    I expect that there will be a figure for Elvira’s and she better not have thoracic carpet sections!

    I’m back on a new computer and hope this one will like pictures. How ever I have misplaced  my 15mm pulp figures including the one I was going to use as Mistress Elvira !!! So I will try to find or buy a new one and get it painted if not, she will just be, off camera.

    I don’t normally stray from my WW2home here but I just stumbled upon this crazy thread…Reading the Mistress Elvira tit le  (giggle) I presumed it was just some immature sexual deviant types masquerading as wargamers and then I find Blue and Just Jack hanging out…how right I was…

    I want to ask what the %#$^# this is all about but I’m afraid of the answer

    “The great Gaels of Ireland are the men that God made mad,
    For all their wars are merry, and all their songs are sad.”

    Oh War Panda….This is kinda a continuation of my Oil Pumping Station Zebra game, Bongo Haram has kidnapped the Ladies of Mistress Elvira’s School for Girls, thinking that they are school girls, not hookers. Col Sokolove has an understanding with Mistress Elvira and has to rescue her.  Just my way of adding a bit of color to my modern Imagi-Nation games.

    Ahh now I under…what?!?

    Oil Pumping? Station Zebra? Bongo Haram? Ladies of Mistress Elvira’s School for Girls? School girls? Hookers? Col Sokolove ?

    Bit of color? I’d say so Blue, and I still have no idea what you’re talking about

    No I didn’t read anything here on modern but it sounds like it might be worth checking out…well Rod seems to think something’s worth checking out…maybe even two things?

    War  Panda and Kyoteblue:

    Given Just Jack’s proclivity to post carpet sections as hills, Elvira’s might be the only real topography we see on TWW. And being of Highland descent I feel more comfortable with lush hills than craggy plains. Ergo Elvira!

    Just Jack:

    I too use carpet sections for hills but they are stacked to give some real height to the table’s topography.  However my sections are big (some are 2.5 meters long and they were bought to match the table colours so they look like real hills a bit. So Jack Just start stacking them and maybe we’ll leave you alone you old “carpet huncher”.

    His war-games have brought a whole new meaning to “carpet bombing”

    Bastards!!!

    I do no wish for, nor shall I accept, any of your faux hills!!!  I hereby vow to use my current carpet hill til the end of my days!

    I’m glad I remain so popular even in my absence.  Now get off your butts and post some batreps.

    “I do no wish”? Why Jacko, you’re beginning to sound a wee bit Scottish or, dare I say, Irish! I do no wish t’a offend y’a, but your Texas twang seems t’be mutating into a Scottish brogue! There may be some small hope for y’a yet! Soon, we’ll have y’a drinking single malt and eating mealy pudding and haggis! That’ll test your metal far more than Texas or the Marines ever did.  You’ll be crawling about on the floor and not because you’re playing Five Core laddie. No, some Scotch Ale and Talaskers in y’a and you’ll be your own carpet on the floor and I promise y’a you’ll feel like a real war has broken out in your own wee head! Y’a thought Iraq was bad? Just thank your lucky stars the USMC never sent you to Glas’gaw!

    Yeah, yeah, I was typing while holding the baby.  Though I am more Irish than Panda.

    Hereby amended: “I do NOT wish for, nor shall…”  That was pretty funny though.

    Anyway, quite yakking and get over and take a look at my 6mm Brigade Command bases and let me know what you think.

    V/R,

    Rod, Bongo Haram have technical’s in pick up trucks while the BTR-70’s are third hand APC’s for Col Sokolove’s forces, or will be when I finish painting them.

    I stand corrected. So the Colonel is reverting back to his ancestoral kit. No Western kit for this scion of the defenders of the Rodina-Mat! Well, perhaps that’s as it should be. What will Mistress Elvira be driving?

    Cheers and good gaming ASAP.
