A quick and dirty post here and shout out to the astute members of the Facebook Mutant Crawl Classics group.
Someone found this cool tube of crazy robots that are prefect for MCC or another gonzo Sci-Fi/Space Opera type game on Amazon. And thanks to Amazon’s love selling extras, it recommended a tube of Fantasy Mini’s by the same manufacturer.
All in all not bad. The robots are well robots and bigger than your normal 25/28 mm scale mini’s but that’s OK. The fantasy ones are mostly pretty cool. The dwarf, orcs, and two headed orcish types are larger but pretty close to the standard scale. The dragons are just about the right size. But a couple seem king of silly. They are made of soft plastic and looking at Amazon at least one person has started to paint them. All in all a pretty good buy. Hey, you’re smart. You do the math.
Ok so here’s a couple of pics. First we got the fantasy ones with a couple of standard mini’s for scale.
And the Robots with some Galaxy Laser Team minis.
It’s Halloween time and that means all sorts of cheap finds. There’s the Skeleton Army that’s going around and these’ have been doing around too. I don’t remember where I saw them first. Not sure if it was Facebook or G+ but I finally found some at the local Dollar Tree. Now, interesting things. They weren’t with the rest of the Halloween stuff but with the toys. So you might need to check depending.
As you can see below, they are bigger than your standard 25mm mini’s. But then for just $1, you get 10 zombies (some appear in modern attire). two tombstones, and two zombie dogs. Not a bad. I’m starting to get a good collection of these oversized mini’s at dirt cheap prices.
Here they are pictured with some of the skeletons, some standard scale mini’s and one of the Mythic Bucket mini’s.
So here’s another deal that I grabbed up last week over on Amazon as an “Add-On Item, Arena of the Planeswalkers Shadows Over Innistrad Game for only about $7. I admit I have zero interest in the game itself. But after a little Google Fu, there’s about twenty mini’s in there and for $7 I couldn’t pass it up. Sure only five of them are prepainted and they do have the larger Heroscape bases but they are still 25/28 mm scale.
You can see the larger bases above. Plus I mentioned Heroscape. Well you get a few more compatible plastic tiles, a cardboard hex map, a shiny new d20, those odd Heroscape dice, various game pieces, and three of these neat stands that would make cool flying bases.
All in all. I consider it a pretty good steal. And other games in the series are currently at massive discounts on Amazon.
A gang of monsters inspired by Museum at the End of Time and a few other things. First, I grabbed up a pack of cheap dinosaur skeletons on Amazon. Because you can always use dinosaur skeletons. Looking ahead to Tomb of Annihilation. But any way, here’s some of them with regular mini’s for scale.
Now here’s the stats.
Init: +2; ATK: +2; AC: 12; HP: 16; Saves: Fort: +2, Ref: +0, Will:+2
Bite: 1d20; DMG: 2d5; SP: Severs Limb on a Crit.
Laser Eyes: 1d20; DMG: 2d6; Range: 100 feet
Bite: 1d16; DMG: 1d6; and Tail Sweep: 1d16; DMG: 1d8 plus make a DC: 12 REF Save or be knocked 2d6 feet in a random direction and knocked prone.
Bone Spikes: 1d20; DMG: 1d6; Range: 60 feet
Tundrotops (Bonus points if you get where I was inspired for this one.):
Gore: 1d20; Damage: 2d8
Stone Bullets: 1d20; Damage 1d8; Range: 60 feet
Stiletto Wings (2x): 1d16 (each); DMG: 1d6
Sonic Screech: DMG: 1d6 in a 30 foot line. Make DC 10 Fort Save for Half Damage.
So yeah. I’m really having a great time with Mutant Crawl Classics. The party is almost done with Museum at the End of Time. That means it’s time to start brainstorming at what to throw at them after that. Oh, I have some ideas. Stay Tuned for those.
This is why you stop by your local Dollar Tree looking for that nifty gaming or even geekery bargain.
That’s right Star Wars Micro Machines three packs for a buck each. Of course, I had to grab some. Because like Space Opera RPGing that’s why. Yeah I know a lot times there’s just cheap stuff that may or may not be that cool and their inventory doesn’t change that much. But with a little perseverance and some luck, you find those treasures. It’s just like a dungeon.
