First I’m sorry this took so long, but I had a lot of unforeseen problems after Origins that prevented me from taking the time to break this down into three parts. For example flooding put our internet provider under water, that makes the whole social media thing pretty difficult.  There were other weather problems but no access to the internet was the worst. But Randall and I did talk at Origins game Fair about nearly everything Catalyst related.  Since Randall had so much to say it was necessary to break it into smaller segments.

  • Sprawl Gangers
  • Battletech and SR box sets
  • Valiant, The Duke, and Hostile Takeover

Part one is about the current trends with Sprawl Gangers. The Skirmish Game that takes place in the Shadowrun Universe. We do chat about Valiant briefly but we come back to it later.

MERCS_logoAt Origins Kenny and I chatted about, MERCS 2nd ed, Emergence Event, Mercs Conflict, Myth, and a little bit about Recon.  They are an overworked bunch of guys that are great to be around at a convention.   Which by the way make sure you read my thoughts on MERCS Conflict in a couple of days.   I had the chance to play the game while at the show.

 

I llok forward to seeing you guys at Gen Con.

Visit them at MegaCon Games.

About two years ago I had the opportunity to sit down with Tom Meier at Origins Game Fair.  In that interview I had my first chance to take a look at the game Freeblades.  You can learn just about everything you need to know about the company and the game in this video.  The most important and appealing information for me is the fact that their system has the same rules base from role playing to skirmish to a large scale squad based game.

goreGoreshade the Bastard & Deathwalker – Warcaster & Character Solo

$24.99

 

The abomination called Goreshade the Bastard was once known by a different name. Only decades ago, Ghyrrshyld ruled one of the most powerful houses of Ios. He was obsessed with the decline of his race, so he decided to take on the difficult responsibility of forcing the Iosans to confront their doom rather than hide from it. He immersed himself in monstrous experiments and dark rituals in search of Ios’ salvation, but his actions horrified his people and plunged his nation into civil war. Now an outcast, Goreshade serves Cryx in an alliance of convenience to further his research into the dark arts.

Goreshade the Bastard & Deathwalker come in a blister (PIP 34088). A player may field one Goreshade the Bastard & Deathwalker in a Cryx army.

 

Contains:

1 Goreshade the Bastard
1 Deathwalker

3 color stat cards

In this Figure Forge Matt assemble the General Purpose Cadre for the Southern Army for Heavy Gear Blitz.   I did quite a bit of editing on this video because the gears are so similar.  I decided to cut a  lot of the repetition out for you.  The end result is complete instructions for one gear and about 30 minutes less video time.
