My next game should be MMP's Where Eagles Dare. Part two of the grand tactical Market Garden series. It's in final printing now. Should be shipping in 2-3 weeks if it all checks out.

I recently picked up LFT's Kampfgruppe Scherer: Shield of Cholm which is a historical ASL module based on the fighting in Cholm Russia in winter 1942.

I just bought a bunch of used minis - Imperial faction for Uncharted Seas (lots of pewter, w00t!) and The Directorate faction from Firestorm Armada.

The Uncharted are already painted, and done well, so that's fine. The Firestorm have one painted and the rest primed. The paint job is fair but I'll probably strip it and do it over.

Got a rule book for Firestorm in the deal, all for the price of what one would have cost, so I'm happy.

This probably doesn't count, but my 13 yr old had me buy him a gas mask so he could go out "Black Ops" for Halloween.

Ahhhh,...amazon.

Lets see here

Last week I picked up

Ship of the Line - A Flying Colors expansion

Descent, The Well of Darkness expansion, as the system and its expansions is going into its second edition instead of just a reprint as was thought before....

And I put in a pre order of Dungeons and Dragons The Legend of Drizzt board game coming out this month.

Thinking about running a net game of this somewhere, even here, maybe...

Cheers

Tom

I Purchased a whole stack of 2nd Edition D&D books from some guy, all the "Complete" Handbooks, four DM Guides, three Player Guides, a D&D Cycolpedia, Volos Guides and countless boxed sets, from Maztica to Spelljammer, including three Waterdeep sets,

It's going to be a good winter.
