So Long and Thanks for all the Tacos

I'm leaving behind mainstream hard sci-fi wargaming in favor of superhero and zombie wargaming, so basically that means I will no longer continue to maintain this blog and the others like it I created. Will I return to this genre? Who knows...maybe. But If I don't then I warned you.

I am leaving this blog in place. It is useful as a source of links for resources that pertain to its subject matter. I just won't be adding anything new.

WTF is THIS?!?

I'm so VERY burned out on traditional hard SF wargaming, that I need something more tongue-in-cheek, more spontaneous, more fun basically, so I'm getting into superhero wargaming, and will be chronicling my foray into that genre on my new blog.

Oh, in case you're wondering Maj. Diz Aster is hasta la bye-bye, kaput, muerto, sayanoraville, 86'd, todt, dedd...

I'm now going by CHIMICHANGA-X. Maj. Diz Aster got to be too stuffy and staid...BORING. Time to have some fun.

Traveller LIFTOFF RPG Indiegogo Crowdfunding campaign

For all of you that play Traveller, 13Mann has an Indiegogo campaign running for their Traveller LIFTOFF RPG. Traveller:LIFTOFF is a beginner box for Mongoose Traveller.  Once it's funded and produced, it'll be a great way to introduce new players to Traveller. The sample layout for the finished product is slick

You can also check out more downloads for Traveller: LIFTOFF here

So if you're a fan of Traveller, I recommend you seriously consider backing the Traveller: LIFTOFF Crowdfunder

Reaper Miniatures CAV Kickstarter is a GO

Today is the start of Reaper Miniatures Kickstarter for their CAV miniatures to be produced as BONES. What are BONES? BONES are the plastic version of the original metal miniatures. Reaper had 2 previous successful Kickstarters to produce several of their Fantasy miniatures as BONES. I have a few of the Fantasy BONES and they are very good, so I'm looking forward to CAV BONES. If you'd like to get in on this, you can get the full details on the CAV Kickstarter page.
