My thinking exactly. You also bring up a good point about using 1:18 scale action figures, you could just simply double the ranges from 1/35. I’m going to mention this in my next blog post.09/12/2018 at 23:26 in reply to: What makes you want to ragequit the hobby (or a project)? #105402
Fanbois – I’ve played a few games and engaged in a few projects where fans have become somewhat obsessive about the rules of the company to the extent that their excessive enthusiasm blinds them to any fault whatsoever, and the mere act of questioning even the smallest detail or issue causes you to become unclean in their eyes. At that point I tend to drop it and quietly move along to another project where one doesn’t get the feeling that the Spanish Inquisition is about to descend upon you
Good one, it would be like number 11 on a top ten list for me.09/12/2018 at 22:04 in reply to: What makes you want to ragequit the hobby (or a project)? #105393
I’m just going to list some things and not give an explanation because I feel I don’t have to:
Social Justice Warriors
The only explanation I will give is that none of these things existed when I started gaming around the mid to late 80’s. Most of these things are caused by the interweb so I guess I can blame at least some on it.09/12/2018 at 21:54 in reply to: I wish I were a better hobbyist #105392
When it comes to painting and other activities I could care less about them. I’m even reaching the point where I wouldn’t care about my opponent painting their mini’s just as long as they are assembled and properly based. The point of having the miniatures is to play the game and I wish I could do this more often.02/05/2018 at 05:56 in reply to: A 54mm (1/32 scale) 5 men at Kursk game. #89782
There are also plenty of black powder era figures available in this scale as well. A shootout at the O.K corral or a woodlands skirmish during the french and Indian wars would be interesting to see at this scale.29/04/2018 at 22:07 in reply to: A 54mm (1/32 scale) 5 men at Kursk game. #89631
The owner of the figures has for the longest time been looking for a game system to use his 54’s in. For anything 20th century you need small numbers since your troops are spread out, five core fits this perfectly. We doubled the ranges of everything (technically speaking we should do 4x) but found it gave the game that band of brothers or saving private Ryan feel.
54’s are currently more affordable than 28’s and you can more easily customize your figures with various weapons and equipment.
