Old Glory Army

I discovered Old Glory Miniatures at about the same time I discovered Blue Moon Manufacturing. I looked at their selection and posted to various boards about their quality and one dude (SeattleGamer at World Works Games) stated that their miniatures were decent and a really good deal if you joined their Old Glory Army.....


I took the plunge and paid my $50 and OMG!!! With 40% off their Mini's (and they have not only their own, but Blue Moon Manufacturing AND WestWind AND SuperFigs AND Crusader Miniatures. If you just get $125 worth of them, you break even. But they send you a FREE Mini every month. Last year (and I missed out on that one) was Pirates!! Damn it! But this year has been cowboys and they have been very, very impressive. They come with a write up, telling you about the mini. Most are actual historical figures. This is a great deal. I'll be signing up again next year too. I'll be ordering more stuff soon (to make sure I get the best deal possible!).

I still have SuperFigs to get for use with SuperSystem, and their West Wind Mini's are great, especially the Lucifer Wars figures.

The Lucifer Wars sculpts are really nice and if you join the army, you get them for a really great price.

The Gothic Horror minis as I mentioned are both from Blue Moon Manufacturing AND West Wind Productions. So you get the best of both worlds.

I could go on and on about this great deal and great company (excellent customer service) but I won't. Check it out and see for your self.

Blue Moon Manufacturing

A while ago I found a company that really impressed me.

Blue Moon Manufacturing

I can't remember how I discovered this particular company, but I have some of their "Bump in the Night Sets".

I have Box 1 I Had Such a Howling Good Time set and I rate these an 8 out of 10. The main werewolf post is great and I really like the action and terror the pose instills. The only drawback is it is a bit top heavy and I had to add weight to the base to keep from knocking it over. The other figures too are well done and I am very impressed by the sculpts. Even the Victorians that come with it are detailed and hopefully I will do them justice when I paint them. Once I get my work place back I'll finish him up so I can post some pictures. I'm hoping to get these guys painted for Halloween horror gaming.

Box 2 You're Such a Pain in the Neck is a set of vampires and their hunters. This is where Blue Moon drops the ball as far as monsters go. The vampire sculpts are as impressive as the Werewolves on action, so the monsters here only get a 5, but the detail on the Victorians really make up for it and they get a 9. The set itself is worth the Victorians, especially the Van Helsing figure.

Their upcoming Things that go Bump in the Night: Aliens and Spacement has me jazzed. So Jazzed that I started writing up rules for them (a modification of the Chaos in Carpathia rules).

The vehicles that they just released for the Aliens and Spacemen look like good old fashion pulp Sci-Fi from the 40's and 50's. I can't wait to get my hands on them and hopefully my rules adaptation will bring those babies to life.

Unfortunately I need my workspace back in order to have the models come to life with a good paint job.

Ah but the posibilities are endless.

Thanks Blue Mountain Manufacturing!

Been a while.....

Wow, been more than a month since I posted.

With the condo remodel, the significant other has taken over the work space with boxes that need to be gone through after 20 years of hording. So that is what I've been up to.

Hopefully that will motivate me to get rid of all the stuff so I can paint and built again (which means I can play again too).

Check ya later!
