Memorial Day HistoryMemorial Day began sometime after the Civil War with both formal and informal ceremonies at graves and ceremonies for the soldiers who had fallen in battle. Many places claim to be the birthplace of Memorial Day in 1866, including Waterloo, New York and both Macon and Columbus, Georgia. On May 5, 1868, the Grand Army of the Republic (GAR), a Union veterans organization, established Decoration Day, May 30, as a time for the nation to decorate the dead with flowers. Arlington National Cemetery held the first large observance later that year.By the end of the 19th century, Memorial Day ceremonies were being held throughout the country on May 30. Over time, the Army and Navy adopted policies for proper observances, and state legislatures passed proclamations designating the day. After World War I the day was expanded to honor those who died in all American wars, and in 1971, Memorial Day was declared a national holiday to be celebrated on the last Monday in May.
So, here it is, the idiot edition. I call it the ‘idiot edition‘ as, until you good people have trawled through it and pointed out all my obvious errors, and I have corrected them, it will not become the official 8th edition. Most significant changes to the rules and the text are in blue, and there are some significant changes which I hope you will see as a natural evolution to the game. These are the player’s rules, so I am now working on the GM’s rules, including a fairly comprehensive set of monsters and races for your players to go all murder-hobo on You will find it in the Rules Downloads page, right at the top. I am now retreating to my writer’s bunker to await the storm. As usual the best place to comment is on the Facebook Page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1411598512466256/

Happy New Year everyone! To start with, I would like to thank you all for the exceptionally numerous visits to the blog, because we have almost reached 200,000 =)Unfortunately, there is a fly in the ointment, because as far as our common hobby is concerned 2018 passed too quickly and to be honest it wasn't successful for me.

Marvel Comics legend Stan Lee dies at 95 Were it not for Stan Lee, superheroes would be fewer in number, financially poorer, but better-adjusted people. The torch-bearing writer, editor, and longtime Marvel Comics head honcho has died, Marvel confirmed on Monday. He was 95.Lee’s innovations pushed comic books from the edge of obscurity to the cultural forefront as a legitimate American art form. And he helped usher in an era when superhero movies, including such global blockbusters as Marvel Studios’ Iron Man and Avengers franchises, rank as Hollywood’s most reliably bankable entertainment properties.The son of working-class Jewish immigrants from Romania, Lee was born Stanley Martin Lieber in New York in 1922. He adopted his famous pseudonym while employed as a proofreader and text filler at Timely Comics, the pulp publisher that later became Marvel. “I felt someday I’d be writing the Great American Novel and I didn’t want to use my real name on these silly little comics,” said Lee, who later legally ad
Andy Jarvis had been asked lots of times if he would produce his MRail system, as you all know the cost of producing models can get rather expensive, design, 3d print, mold making and casting costs, been pricing having it made in resin up so question is would you find £25 for Cab, 2x carriages, 60cm of track and 4 x stantions a reasonable price. it would come as a resin kit.
Was in the mood to start painting these buggers

From Jon at Ground Zero Games:With the release of the first of the re-worked Kra’Vak ships, I wanted to ask the FT players on here about your experiences with K’V fleets (under the FB2 rules) over the years….. those of you who have played them, or played against them - what are your experiences about how they work under the current published rules? Are they over-powerful, under-powerful, about right…? Is there anything about them you’d like to see changed or tweaked? Do they give a sufficiently “different” feel to play compared with the Human fleets? Do they need any additional weapons systems?Feel free to have a frank and open discussion - all comments, criticisms and ideas are welcome! ;-)Jon (GZG)Ground Zero Games
Zbierzcie się wszyscy, bo za oknami mgliście, a wiatrem niesione lecą złote jesienne liście...Lato minęło, jesień już za oknem, więc czas na podsumowanie wrześniowej #49 edycji Figurkowego Karnawału Blogowego, którą miałem przyjemność poprowadzić.

Listę poprzednich edycji znajdziecie tutaj.JESIEŃ Temat był bardzo szeroki, więc trochę szkoda niskiej frekwencji, ale może niektórych dopadła już jesienna chandra, albo osoba prowadzącego jakoś nie podeszła =P Tak czy siak zapraszam do podsumowania:Już w pierwszym tygodniu karnawału zameldował się Potsiat z bloga Gangs of Mordheim, który pomalował mroczno-jesienną driadę do swojej drużyny Leśnych Elfów do Blood Bowl'a.Następny był Quidam Corvus z bloga Danse Macabr
