"The Crucible" arrived today. It is a truly impressive book. If you have even a marginal interest in the Slammers, it is a must have.

fyi- I am running the US launch game at Historicon on July 9 from 10 - 5 for Crucible.

If I am lucky I may have some 6mm samples with me.

Also glad you all like the book - I've been helping on that puppy for the last year. Been killing me to keep everything quiet!

No talk on the 6mm mini range?

Hot intel from JT himself ... looks like we will be Rolling Hot .... A lot !!! ;D I've been told by Jez (the man behind Old Crow) that he is dead keen to do his entire range of 28/15mm vehicles in 6mm and – in the 'fullness of time' the 6mm range will reflect the other two in scope.

As an aside, I've supplied him with a 'pack list' drawn from The Crucible) of vehicles to make it easier to order detachments for gamers and the list works universally in 28mm and 15mm – and will in 6mm when the range is complete.

L4: I figured you would already have the entire Slammers TO&E scratchbuilt in your personal motor pool.

So many games... so little time. And players!!!! There are times I wish I lived somewhere else. Having a niche hobby in a country with a headcount of 5 million means there are all too few players around. :'(

As an aside, having to move next Sunday has made me appreciate just HOW many games I do own already. It seems a "show us yer stuff" pic is in order.
