    If anyone is looking for inspiration for a historical ninja based game, I highly recommend the Sonny Chiba TV Series called Kage no Gundan (Shadow Warriors). A good review of the first season can be found here: Shadow Warriors Review.

    Damn... does that bring back memories... I was still in HS.
    Damn, you lucky somenebich!!!!!!!

    There were no gaming companies around where I lived. THAT would have been a dream job for me back in the day

    I stuffed boxes with merchadise and styrofoam peanuts for mailing, and when things were really slow I got to sweep the floor.

    But I got paid in miniatures and FGU gaming products, which I still have most of, and I usually was able to get in on playtest sessions, which was great fun back then.

    I was the only 'kid' in a group of college-age and 30-year-olds, so I guess it was pretty cool.

    They operated out of a storefront - Waterloo Hobbies - and it was precisely one train station from my house (both my home and the store were across from train stations!). I used to get on the train with no money, and the conductor would kick me off at the next stop... which was the stop I wanted.

    Good times... GOOD times...

    Post Osaka 1550 AD - Part 1

    I was going through some old pictures I took and I came across these pics of a model of Osaka (c.1550 AD) called, On the Banks of the Dotonbori Canal. I thought I would share. The figures in these pics are washiningyo style figures in a spring festival setting.

    Serious time crunch on all of that painting but it looks like it was worth it.
