Im running a clone of this game with Just John, Mr Saturday and theottovonbismark at a con in Limerick in a little over a week. Hopefully there wont be too many kinks to work out after that.

Just so that everyone involved in this game is on the same page regarding it, its intended to be a somewhat silly game that rewards heroics and encourages bad impersonations of Hollywood types. A certain amount of randomness (a familiar concept to all with a Warhammer inclination) is by necessity involved. This combined with the small model count per player will mean that some Sensei will be beheaded earlier than others, quite soon in all probablility. Thats just the way it is. Its the price to be paid in order to keep an eight player game ticking over at anything like a decent rate.

Its hopefully going to be goofy, beer & pretzels sort of fun. I am really looking forward to seeing eight individual interpretations of the Immortal/Sensei concept on the same table :)

It goes without saying but the owners of prematurely dead sensei have a moral "duty" to haunt/annoy/trouble/confuse/mislead the owners of those who ended their game... The victor will have both the rewards of being the "only one" and resisting a tableful of mocking bad impersonaters.

I do like my crisp primary colours.

Connor looks great. I've never managed to get stubble to work on a model, how do you do it?

I take a light vesrion of the colour of the hair (a light grey in this case) and I mix it with 50% of matt medium, I then use it like a glaze to create a strong tone over the flesh. The ideal ratio is when you still have the shades and highlights if the skin visible through the glaze (not working well in this case).

Mr Lambert is looking cool JB. A bit more grizzled than we are used to seeing him I think, but I guess living for 40 millenia would do that to anyone, even an immortal (who cannot die).

Razor Ramon Mc Lambert got his card like all the others, I'm reconsidering plastifying all the cards. I think they should last long enough for the game and printed and glued on cardboard as they are, they look (almost) just like the original ones and I wouldn't want to ruin that. Having fragile versions will just mean that you'll be extra careful with those you earned...

"- See these cards above the chimney kid ?

- Yeah Granpa...

- Did I ever tell you how I got those? You want to hear the story ?

- Dunno, is this time going to be any diffreent from the other 50 times before ?"

I've been told I look like Mark Ruffalo. Not by a credible source, but still...
