The Horror at Hedge House

The Secret Cellar of Hedge House - shut for 70 yearsThis past weekend, a group of friends met to finish a a Call of Cthulhu game that I had started some five years ago.  For various reasons (rusty referee, discompatible player characters, etc.) the first session failed to "gel" and so a reboot was conducted last month, with the concluding episode played last night.It was a basic "Haunted House" scenario, with the original owner disappearing some 70 years in the past, and a team of Investigators being dispatched from the local newspaper to do a story on the subsequent history of the house. That history includes violence, madness and murder.The action and setting of the story took place in early 1970's West Philadelphia, where the relics of grand old houses, now crumbling, can still be seen today.  One of my players ran the address through Mapquest and found a small factory is there today, so the house was probably demolished sometime after the players cleansed it.The scenario was taken and adapted fr

Church of Dagon - finished!

Heil Cthulhu!In the previous post there was Church of Dagon posse for Dracula's America - but only half finished. Since that I've managed to find enough time away from miserable life to deal with remaining models.Any specific about them?Not really actually - which is strange because I am big fan of Lovecraft and Call of Cthulhu...Working on both North Star and RAFM models was fun: all models are really cool, nicely casted and characterful. It was nice change from olive everywhere Bolt Action stuff.I added quite a lot of grass tufts on the bases because we decided such a swampy enviroment fits the Church much better than sandy weird west.That's just it I'm afraid, time for pics:Muties and psychos:Shooties:HQ:Whole depraved family:Next hobby thing planned is either group of OLD necromutants for OLD Warzone or another wave of Bolt Action shit. I should finally get Rangers squad...

Church of Dagon

Ia! Ia! Ia!I was planning to post post it bit earlier, but finishing half of the gang took me bit longer than I expected. What is this anyway?Few months back the friend of mine proudly announced he ordered 3 or 4 warbands for Dracula's America skirmish game. At first I wasn't much keen on starting new game, especially taking place in a world of cowboys and Dracula's depraved minions...Everything changed when I learnt there's also Church of Dagon posse, and somehow whole fluff wasn't silly any longer. As for the game it's ok, standard match takes like 1,5 hrs and you only need 5-10 models. It's also space-wise: battlefield is only 36" x 36".  Game seems to be much more fun for more than 2 players.What I like much more is miniatures range: these are metal (no plastic / shitecast bullcrap) and very characterful pieces. Perfect for pulp gaming as well as for RPG characters (Call of Cthulhu 1920 that is). Working on the models was total fun and really cannot wait to see remaining gangers done.The box con

Creepy Hollow: The Wrath of the Headless Hessian

This past weekend saw Megz and yours truly at Cold Wars in Lancaster, PA. We ran a 7V/Witching Hour scenario featuring Ichabod Crane and the Headless Hessian, twice, both games were full, and both saw very different results.Setup: Ichabod Crane and Katrina van Tassel are planning to search the Old Dutch Burying Ground for the Hessian's skull, to break the curse and end the haunting of Creepy Hollow. Lady van Tassel (aka The Witch) is going along to secretly thwart their plans. Abraham von Brunt has ridden to Mount Pleasant to raise a portion of the Westchester Militia.The action takes place at night, with no moon. Safe movement is limited to a 6", with an attempted run adding 1d6". Shooting is limited to 12", with a -1 modifier for anything beyond short range.If the Horseman had not been summoned by turn 6, he would automatically appear at the southern end of the road. The militia were timed to enter after the Hessian (roll turn or less on d6, once the Hessian appears).We used the 7th Voyage event deck, with

RAFM Mambas

Until recently I only had two Mambas.  One a brawler variant and the other was less than complete: no head and engine.  Now I have two more: a Black Mamba and a Snake Eye Mamba.  So, it looks like I have the elements of support squad.Hav...
