FFG's STAR WARS X-WING...I'm Giving In To The Dark Side!

My friends, you know that I have been working on TOMORROW BLACK for a long time, and it has been a task full of joy and frustration. I am going to take a break from all of this effort, and have some fun with gaming again. Who said "When You Make Your Hobby A Business, The Hobby loses It's Appeal..."

Soo...I want to "Just Have Some Fun With Gaming." Okay...where to start?

What do I really like...no...what do I LOVE, enough to spend time and money on?

I am not about to get back into 30MM Miniatures Games again...I am in love with Small Scale Miniatures, which is probably why I have spent so much time and money to develop my own 15MM Game.

Video Games... Hell No! I grew up in the time of  Video Arcades and I have played all of the classic Video Games, way back when it was all new to the world...Ha, Ha!

RPG! Nope...I do not like the video game style of RPG that has developed in the recent decade. It is just another Video Game IMO. I am not going back to Traditional RPG either! I have no hope at all in starting up a serious Pen & Paper Game since all of my friends have busy lives, or have moved away, it is impossible to get three to six good people together with any regularity to run a REAL RPG Game.

Board Games...no, they are silly, and I played them when I was a kid, along with Video Games, besides...the hip new games are like CCGs or CMGs that generally use 30MM models, and that is pretty much like going back to Warhammer.

Is there a cool, fully supported Sci-Fi or Horror Small Scale Miniatures Game that I can play  Solo or with just one fellow player...and will I enjoy the Game Mechanics & Aesthetics of IT?




YEAH...THAT WILL DO JUST FINE!!!
   
This news just made it even sweeter: The New X-WING Large Models!

I Am Going To Make The Jump Into Hyperspace!

MASTER MOLD THREE...In The Mail This Week!

I have a few nice models in route to Iron Wind this week. All of my Trooper & Cavalry Bases, some secrete projects (LOL...Whoow!) most of these are the 3D Sculptures I have had done in the last year.



This Master Mold is going out to take care of the bulk of my plastic toys. I have a lot of my Traditional Sculpture almost ready to be Mastered too. I am going to send them off soon too, that will be Master Mold Four.

NON COM BIONOID CAPTIVE RELEASED!

The first Non-Combatant Captive model is in The TOMORROW BLACK Shop this week.



This model represents a typical Bionoid Techer. She is wearing a Tech Body Seal, that has been damaged by her captors. The model is geared in a back braced harness, collar, and gag. 

This model is primarily intended for use in Rescue Missions, and as cute adult themed eye candy for populating terrain features. The Bionoid Techer is 18MM to the top of her head, which represents a 6' figure in my Miniature Range.

The Original Sculpture.

How About That Zack...

The Man Of Steel Film is out next week, it is probably going to prove to be the best Sci-Fi Hero film of recent history and near future... Here are The Cool Trailers and Spots that I have enjoyed most.






I am very happy to see this has been done, and I look forward to owning the Special Edition Trilogy on DVD ...Talk about one to watch over again.
The last time I felt this good about a series of Films was when Iron Man hit, and before that was way back when Peter Jackson's LOTR blew up earth.

Go Zack! Nine years ago you did a remake of an epic scale, with a certain silly albeit beloved Zombie Film...and look at you now Brother!

RIDDICK 4...I Love It!

Riddick Is Back! I have always loved these films! The Riddick Universe offers a darker, cool, and genuinely fun take on Sci-Fi Films in the same way that The Blade Films (1 & 2) made Horror cool and fun again.


As I watched this Trailer I was thinking; "This is another film that has elements of TOMORROW BLACK...and I like it!" Riddick is fighting Rattle Wings, and the TECH Level is similar to what I have in The T-Black Game for for MID TECH; Jet Bikes, Lasers, Body Shields, Smart Hand Weapons, and so forth.

I will be adding this new film to my DVD Collection.

MARKER BASES RELEASED!

The Marker Bases are in The TOMORROW BLACK Shop this week.


These cute little 11MM bases are the same bases that I used for The MURG Flies, but I always intended to use them as Marker Bases too, and now they are here in all of their terrifying glory! They are designed to be used as small Game Token - Flag Stands, to easily mount any number of small icons and to track locations of in game items and effects. 

Each base is kind of it's own Icon already. The Skull and The Dead Kid can both be used for many obvious reasons such as: Wounds, Mine Fields, Traps, and so forth. I like to use The Pipe to mark Secrete Items in games.

Farewell Mr. Harryhausen!

Ray Harryhausen died in London this Tuesday. I just read this today. Ray was a real artist and a good man by all accounts. I grew up watching his films and like many artistically inclined and crafty modeling kids of of my generation Ray Harryhuasen inspired me greatly. I started drawing and writing little comic book stories because of The Monsters, The Cool Heroes that fought them, and The Cute Females in distress, that lived in all of Ray's films.

MURG IMP SWARM Re-released!

Happy Vapeing...

So this Quitting Smoking thing is REAL... I though you guys might get a kick out of seeing the shop where I go to get my Vapors.


I can walk to The Vapor Room in about 3 minutes from my front door.
If I had the Bat Cape or in my case The BIG Black Fat Man Cloak, I could hop off of my 8th floor balcony and be there in 30 seconds.
You can order their wonderful flavors on line to anywhere. 

If any of you have anybody who is still smoking in this TECH Age get them on this ...it works.
I have been burning tobacco free since March 6th, and have not had a cig ...not fucking one, nor has my diet changed in any way, since my first draw on my Vaporizers.

I am more awake and have greater attention while sculpting too...OH Lordy!

It cost me about $25 a month to Vape, and I suck on the damn thing like it is an aqua lung and my big ass is down in the Marianna trench. There goes the extra monthly Hobby Budget $$$ for the NEW BME Website and hosting, and a little left for some of the Master Molds cost too.

This Years Birthday.

Not to bad this year. I had a nice dinner and enjoyed the company of a few good friends, same as most of us I reckon.

Then I got silly and stopped Smoking after 30 years.

I have been smoke free since the 6th, and now Vape. I was serious about doing this, and it has worked so well for me that I have already given away all of my RYO smoking materials, to neighbors that roll their own cigarettes, which is what I have done for about seven years. Some new technology really is useful... I don't know why people still spend $200 a month on Cartons of Cigs. I stopped that shit when name brand cartons got to around $20. If you still smoke I am telling you as a life long smoker, top of the line Vaporizers (See my Links) do work...it IS just like smoking Brothers, but without all of the bad shit you get with smoke.

I am of course keeping my Skull Ash Tray, but now that Lil Mo Fo will have Skittles or M&M's in it.

Making the switch to Vaporizer Tech will save me about $40 a month off Smoking RYO Cigs, which use to cost me about $60 a month. That extra $$$ will go to 3D Sculpts and Prints. 

Which brings me to my second Birthday Present...Lol...John at Moddler sent me a few images of my New 3D Models this week, a day after my B-Day.


All of these Prints will be in Master Mold Number Three.

Moddler & NEW 3D Joint Nickahs.

How about Moddler. I am going to be a lazy no good, and just link to John Bear's nice post about Moddler. Big JB said it all just fine, so I invite you to read his comments at his Cool Azz Blog.

I had a few new 3D's done too recent like. I ain't showing you guys all of them, but I will share the one that I am the most happy with; a Chain Blade which I will use for several of my new 15MM and 30MM sculptures.

This is the Chain Blade. I will sculpt The Engions on based on several designs.

Sexy as Hell...ain't it Brothers.

This baby is at Moddler right now, with other new models and a redo of my Toxic Dead Black Barrel, which got crushed the first time Stu tried to Master it. This second time around the damn thing will be 2/3 filled with Procreate before I send it to Iron Wind.


I will share some more 3D stuff soon...

MURG FLIES SWARM Re-released!

I still rank these little critters high among the works I did back in 2011, they are just to disgustingly cute not to love.

BATTLE MINIATURES EMPORIUM IS NOW REOPEN!

Battle Miniatures Emporium is now reopen at Highlander Studios on January 13th 2013. Many of my friends and  business associates felt that it would be a good move to join forces with Highlander Studios for several reasons. Mr. Rodrick Campbell and I are friends with similar interest in 15MM Miniatures that support Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Horror Tabletop Gaming. Our operations are basically one man shows. We each work with many of the same production companies. Our 15MM products are compatible. It all makes good sense really.


I am currently working on many new 15MM Models to support my TOMORROW BLACK Product Range, but for now, to get the shop open, I am offering some of my early works, which are internationally available for the first time.

Visit The Tomorrow Black Page at Highlander Studios.

2013 WILL BE A GOOD YEAR!

THE NUMBER 13 REPRESENTS BALANCE, CLARITY, AND PURITY. There are many other meanings and myths associated with thirteen of course , but the primary understanding of this numeral is all good babes.

I am really going to get TOMORROW BLACK going this year . I intend to release about 160 models for the range, and publish a decent version of the rules as a PDF by October.

Product announcements will be published here on the 13th of each month.


Life is what you make of it my Brothers...and speaking only for myself, I am done with being a lazy fuck up.


Now is the time. 


THIS Mother Fucking Year.
