Original Recipe

Now that the spooky season has passed and the undead have had their fun and Thanksgiving is on its way, lets serve that number up with some Spuds.


I'll tie this in with gaming by saying that just like D&D, I think I tend to prefer the Original Version.

Scenes from Superville.

So what's going on in the city today?

The Mayor and his staff was menaced by Machine Overlord and his Mechanical Minions, but thankfully high tech lawman Tex Mech arrived to defend our civic institutions.
Y'all surrender nice n' peaceable or I reckon I'll blast ya into scrap.
A bank heist was foiled by Galatia, Mighty Maid of Marble.
She'll rock your world, you miscreants.
The sinister Professor Portal nearly overwhelmed two patrol officers, were it not for the timely arrival of the Emerald Shadow.
He knows what evil lurks beyond that wretched shell.
There was a running battle between The Comet and Mean Streak across town.
Stop! Or I'll run the opposite direction and punch you in the face after circumnavigating the earth.
The White Knight rescued a damsel in distress from a bunch of punks.
I'm afraid you fellows are going to need a lesson in good manners.
And then ran into Gravedigger and The Unstoppable Dreadnought on a senseless rampage in a fast food establishment when he went on his lunch break.
And while I explain to these two why it's rude to cut in line, please prepare me a Number 7 combo to go.
Captain Futura held forth on her recent defeat of Shock Tower to eager members of the press.
Film at 11!
Two friends who took a wrong turn on the way to the comic book store were rescued from a mugging by the elusive Alley Cat.
Best. Rescue. Ever.
Finally, Agent O'Connor and her team of investigators thought that they'd cornered The Crimson Thorn, unaware that The Deadly Mantis and The Silent Specter had laid an ambush.
Drop my weapons? Oh, something's gonna drop, all right.
 Thankfully, prompt intervention by the Elementelles turned the tables on the craven criminals.
Burn & Bash & Swirl & Splash
Just a perfectly normal day around here.

Mighty Minis

Since I was nerdy enough to show off my brand new miniature filing system on my last post, I figured I ought to do a few posts featuring the contents of my spiffy little plastic boxes. This week:


When I was working on getting some minis ready for this year's Helgacon, my eyes and wallet wandered over to Reaper Miniatures, where both were ensnared by several cool superheroes and villains from their Chronoscope line. So I wound up acquiring about two teams worth of heroes.

The Superlative Seven. Evildoers beware!
The Elementelles, freelance female furies for freedom!
 And of course, what good are heroes without a grisly rogues gallery of villains to battle?

Thirteen monstrous menaces.
But then I thought that our favorite comic book adventures don't just feature super powered folks. That was a little tougher to pull together, until recently I discovered these plastic figures from Wargames Factory. They're meant to be zombie apocalypse survivors (male & female), but with a little bit of finagling with my bits box and modeling putty, I got a nice range of modern era normal folks to fill out a superheroic adventure.

And so I have brave officers of the law.
Bad boys, bad boys, whatcha gonna do?
Federal Agents or Plainclothes Detectives.
Secret AGENT man. Secret AGENT man.
I also had some Reaper Bones tech troopers who make a dandy SWAT team.
Advanced Special Weapons & Tactics, to be precise.
On the other side of the judge's gavel I got cheap street thugs.
Thugs, or training equipment for rookie supers?
An armed gang or a supervillain's minions.
All right guys, lets go do crimes!
And a deadly squad of robots (also from Reaper).
3 Laws? We are programmed to not need no steenkin' 3 Laws.
And standing haplessly in the middle of it all, assorted civilians.
These are the people in your neighborhood.
I got plans for these guys. Those of you out there in the Helgacon cosmos, look forward to their appearance there next year.

Stay tuned, true believers! Excelsior!
