Flying to Historicon on your private jet from your private island in the Bahamas you crash land on an isolated island.

You wisely hired a pilot who's an aspiring actress/super model AND wargamer who also survives the crash.


You brought along only one set of miniatures and terrain. Your comms are smashed and you'll be stranded for quite some time.

What's the period?

What's the scale, 6mm, 15mm, 20mm, 25mm?

Who's the aspiring actress/super model?

What's the scale, 6mm, 15mm, 20mm, 25mm?

They're sizes, not scales.


Sod the wargaming.

Jean Harlow, Claudette Colbert or Paulette Goddard.

Connard Sage29 Nov 2011 9:54 a.m. PST

No, wait


Who cares?

Marilyn Monroe.

Wartopia Inactive Member29 Nov 2011 9:56 a.m. PST

Totally with you on Goddard.

Not sure about Harlow. Sort of a big protruding forehead imo.

Connard Sage29 Nov 2011 9:56 a.m. PST

Er, hang on.


Wargaming? Who mentioned wargaming?

Jamie Lee Curtis or Kelly le Brock. Preferably both.

Wartopia Inactive Member29 Nov 2011 9:57 a.m. PST

Ok, coin toss between Monroe and Goddard.

Is there any aspiring actress who just happens to be a wargamer?

If we are talking fantasy (?) – I only do historicals so this poll would not apply to me!

But to indulge the fantasy…

54mm Napoleonics and a copy of Bruce Quarries rules.

Goddess? Natalie Portman ? Hayden Panneteiere? a young Grace Kelly ? I would not really care, provided she could cook and clean fish, and had good play style.

You've added a new dimension to the topic.

Super model IN PERIOD COSTUME!!!!!!

Shades of DragonCon!


Well done!

@Little Big Wars:

Karen Gillan I know, but who is Karen Gillam?

Little Big Wars Inactive Member29 Nov 2011 3:18 p.m. PST


She's a victim of the internet being unable to spell.

I would be fond of Strip DBA. Strip Empire would take too long to get a result….

Actually if Christina Hendricks would be stranded on a tropical island with me, I'd let her pick the period!

Hmm – if I lose the pilot can I take a 2nd period & scale?

Scarlett Johansson

I take it as a sign from the gods that she split with her husband within 2 weeks of my split. I just have to figure out why we left my private island in the Bahamas. I'm pretty sure I would have been too distracted to worry about Historicon.
