Thought you'd get a kick out of that. :)

In personal wargaming news, I had scheduled another MFZ:RA demo/game day at the FLGS downtown, but it was bitter cold in Ottawa yesterday and (understandably) none of the regular players showed up, but a couple of Magic players from the front room came over for some demo games.  Here's a photo from the end of the first round of the second demo game I ran:

Finally got a chance to play Dracula's America - 4 player brawl. I got my ass kicked due to high risk attacks and poor rolling. Still fun though - interesting rules and fun gameplay.

Cool, will you be doing a battle report game?

I was clearing out my youtube subscriptions and I noticed one of the wargame places had an AP of it. I almost picked up a copy at Dragonmeet but I had other things I needed more.

I'm trying to get back into wargames but I'm not sure where to start again. I know I want to play skirmish games because I don't have the time or money for the bigger ones right now.

It's hard to figure out which ones have rules sets I like and minis I find aesthetically pleasing.

Eventually - gotta start our K47 campaign first though.

Looking through the February issue of WI, I was wondering if there's been any squeals from one of the RPPR players* over the new Japanese units for Konflikt 47?  I also noticed an article about giving awards to miniatures for their "service" in wargames.  I immediatley had a flashback to an issue of KotDT where the guys started giving themselves medals for their own actions in RPGs! :D

*one of you has a Japanese army, right?

Renee has a Japanese army.  We keep up with new K47 developments via their Facebook group, which posts pics of new sculpts etc on a regular basis. I think we will start our campaign in March.

Oh dear, I may be buying this (again):

I'm a little torn on this.  I bought the original pre-painted, blind-box, "collectible" Monsterpocalypse when it came out a decade ago.  I love kaiju, and mecha, and skirmish wargames, and I loved the game itself, but I didn't care for the local tournament scene.  I'll try not to get my hopes up, but I might not be able to resist.
