The latest post on our game blog shows the main figures prior to getting their seal coating.

Soon the painted natives and the promised small terrain.

Impressive collection there.

You're going to need a fair few hands on deck to move that lot around!

Looking good!

Just wanted to check to see if anyone has put ads up in the local game stores and hobby shops for the event?

Not trying to add another to do to your plate (and don't have the time to do it myself), but if someone could do that, it might help to attract some players for the game.

Stores that come to mind are Viking Hobby, Great Escape Games, Hobby Town, the R/C Hobby Shop near Sac, etc.

Perhaps a nice color photo of your large gameboard, with the seas, and all of the vessels arrayed around them, with a bit of text at the bottom listing the time and date of the event.

If that was 28mm I'd play at conquest sac…
Just not a 15mm-er.
But I will stop by to check it out

Andrew, at full capacity the game can handle 32 players – that's why so many game masters. Mako, that is on the list and your note helps remind me to get that going sooner rather than later. Richard, come and check it out – who knows, you might decide to join in – if there's still room!

Looks cool – I see Minifigs, Peter Pig, Blue Moon, Museum …

The only 15 mm pirate figures I am aware of not included are the very new Rebel Minis – and I have some of those on the way. We'll see if they make it into the game. Yes, there are Eureka in there somewhere, and even a few Museum Miniatures.

Amazing…what rules are you using?

Early morning writer20 Feb 2012 9:43 p.m. PST


We are using Bloody Captains, these are 'homegrown' and being developed by Joe B. and me – just had a session today. At some point I will get them posted up on the web for anyone who wants to give them a try.

Added a new post showing the terrain with color added. Use the link in the OP to check it out. Off to work on the 'jungle' now. Enjoy.
