I have crazy busy or crazy ill. Quarantine sucked, I couldn't handle light so couldn't read, use the iPad or watch tv. No it was not Covid but a completely different deadly highly contagious virus I caught from one of the children I transported to and from school... yeah me, I am now back to work but still our county is in quarantine so I was doing security, now doing custodial services. We started massive terrain builds and painting of minis for D&D at my house. Next I need to start painting Scifi stuff.

We are playing D&D with the kids... pretty harsh rule version too... you die at 0. They are having a blast. The Keep on the Borderlands for campaign and Palace of the Vampire Queen for October a horror theme. 

Next FrontierSpace is the space game I am going to introduce them to with elements of StarFrontiers added to it. I am thinking a murder mystery on an outpost cold world with miners and researchers. I am thinking unique stations spread around the area for the various races. The supply ship the characters came on is sabatoged severely and then the murders start... everyone goes into paranoia mode... is it the strangers aka PCs and NPCs from ship... is it someone already on the planetoid? 

So that's what is going on.

Your Frontier Space game sounds like Outland with Sean Connroy mixed with the Paranoia RPG. 

I just finished a reivew and conversion (for the magazine) of this following figure called Baggy the Bag, a mascot from Bad Squiddo Games out of the UK- started by a woman gamer to produced respectful female miniatures and underserved nooks of the gaming market Just love her WW1 British women pidgeonneers as well as a Queen Elizabeth figure. At anyrate love this version of Baggy the Bag with the rocket launcher with a toy squid on it.


With vintage dralasites- obviously he's like a stay push marshmellow man next to vintage dralasites but I just love the subject of the mini. 


Piddling with Keep on the Borderlands and a bunch of KotB expansions I bought on Drive thru RPG. Toying with starting a KotB campaign but wife is slammed with work as a school admin. 

I might not be a dralasite, vrusk or yazirian but I do play one in Star Frontiers!

That is cool... yeah finding the right figurines for some games is hard. I should probably include paper people for the module some how... may as well be the first FrintierSpace mini makers.. lol

Reaper has a couple in their Chronoscope line that are Star Frontiers minis "with the serial numbers filed off" I'll be reviewing and painting them- they are far more cost effective. the yairian figure has a tail. I could trim it but since I hadn't really noticed it up on unboxing him and gluing him to a base I figure I'll just leave it.
