Over the last few weeks I picked up a couple of things related to gaming. Nothing special, but potentially fun.
The first is a set of the Star Wars Miniatures Clone Wars map packs.
I haven’t played the game in ages (although I would actually love to again), but for $1.50 each, it was as steal! I almost bought them a while ago at 3-for-2, but I didn’t. I saw these at Winners, or one of those stores that are all the same, and picked them up. I’d consider collecting those scenario books, the Missions or whatever, and collecting the necessary figures to play them out. Sort of like my friend Les, who is collecting all the Lord of the Rings figures to play the scenarios in the books. He’s also doing up a lot of great terrain for it.
The other purchase was this über awesome golden dragon statue, just in time for Lunar New Year, and the year of the dragon.
It’s from Walmart, for I think $12. Not too cheap, but I think it’s going to make a fantastic piece for a future pulp scenario. I will be getting back to pulp stuff sooner or later, and you can never go wrong with an Asian-themed scenario where a giant golden dragon statue comes alive and tries to eat the players 🙂
This piece might sit on the shelf beside a bunch of other ones I’ve bought for games I haven’t yet gotten around to really working on (mostly pulp stuff). If I get through enough of my other projects early on, perhaps I can make use of these.
Thanks for reading.
