Intermission


Moving house this week. And we're going to be without broadband until the end of August beginning of September...it seems calling BT two weeks before the move was leaving things too late. Grrr. So this blog will be taking a little holiday. Back in September!

IPMS Avon Plastic Model and Wargaming Show 2017


Sadly this year I'm not going to my local wargames show, even though it's in my home town...just to much to do as we're (finally!) moving house next week (for the last time)...but I'd recommend it for anyone nearby.

Pulp Agent, Wargames Illustrated's Latest Giants-in-Miniature



I'm back...sort of. Back from a great two weeks in Cornwall but now busy getting everything ready for the big move next week. So things will still be a bit quiet on the blogging front.

I did, however, notice Wargames Illustrated's latest Giants-in-Miniature fig...Pulp Agent Agent Peggleton!

Sometimes the best man for the job is a woman.
                                                Agent Peggleton
Agent Peggleton is a woman in a man’s world – and she’s better than most of them. A veteran of countless special operations during World War Two, she continues to use her prodigious analytical and combat skills to investigate threats to Democracy and overcome the enemies of Freedom. With her cut glass British accent and her classical looks, she’s a devastatingly attractive woman who can be relied upon to use her feminine wiles and combat skills in equal measure. She wields her trusty Thompson submachine gun in her quest for justice. At times, she suffers at the hands of the sexism endemic to the late 1940’s, constantly striving to prove herself.
Lovely fig and one I have already ordered! Agent Carter figs seem to be a bit like buses...you wait for ages and then two come along at once! Ivor Evans (Saturday Mornings blog) will be happy to have another mini for his superb Agent Carter Pulp Alley games!

All Quiet on the Western Front


Things have been a bit quiet here recently as we get ready to move house...but just before we do we're off to sunny Cornwall for our Summer hols! So it really will be quiet here for the next couple of weeks. Back in August!

The Public Enemy


I got my first lot of Copplestone gangsters back from Matt the other day. As always, he's done a brilliant job!

I've taken a few pics...apologies for the inappropriate terrain but everything else I have is in storage ready for our upcoming move!

Dracula's America: Shadows of the West...Nickstarter Live!


North Star's Dracula's America: Shadows of the West Nickstarter officially goes live on Monday but for those of us who have joined the Dracula's America: Shadows of the West Player's Page on Facebook the page is already live!! If you can't wait, just head on over to the Facebook page here and join up!

There are early bird deals until Wednesday when prices will go up...and there is lots to choose from. If you want all of it then the early bird price is £118 for the lot! Otherwise a book and posse combo will set you back anything from £31.90 to £48.60 depending on the posse and the figures included.


You can also buy all of the figures individually including many from the Artizan Wild West range as well as assorted other figures from a few other ranges...most of which are not normally available individually.

You can apparently play the game as straight Wild West or include the Weird West elements from the book. The posses (each made up of around 10 figs) are Twilight Order (Templars/Monster Hunters), Red Hand Coven (Vampires), Skinwalkers (Indian Shapeshifters), Crossroads Cult (Demon Worshippers), Congregation (Voodoo) and Dark Confederate (Zombie). There is also a further book in the works, Hunting Grounds (due out in Jan 2018), which adds The Forsaken (Cursed 7th Cavalry) and White Dragon Tong.


Already having quite a few Wild West figs, I've jumped on board for the book and some of the more Weird West figs. Really looking forward to this!
