A tired joke for sure but hey, it’s early in the week.
A friend of mine graciously donated this Old Glory ship to me when he moved back to the West Coast. I hung on to it as I have a scenario for the French and Indian War involving a docked French ship, and as Sharp Practice has rekindled my interest in the period, I decided to slap some paint on her. I do have the ship’s cannon, but as they aren’t needed for the scenario I put them away for the time being.
Total impulse buy at Historicon, but when I saw this thing from Pulp Figures I “had” to have it. It’s already been put to use as a moveable deployment point in Sharp Practice. It’s a great sculpt. Everyone should have one, even if you don’t have a use for it.
Well, carts really but I couldn’t think of any catchy cart reference.
While at Historicon I participated in an interesting game titled “My Fair Demon Barber of the Opera: A Musical Celebration of Victorian Horror” (side note – the quote referenced in the linked blog from the Sweeney Todd player was from yours truly). Brigade Games sponsored the event and was kind enough to give all the players a coupon for 10% off at their booth.
As part of my usual convention haul from Brigade, I picked up these cart kits from 4Ground. The second edition of Sharp Practice has a few carts that can be taken as support elements, and these fit the bill nicely.
Nothing revolutionary here. Some quick assembly, paint jobs and basing and they’re ready to go.
