The Hardlove Light Steam Charger Ordered Tuesday, received Thursday from Fighting 15s. Just thought I'd post up a photo of this (hastily assembled) model, as the photo on their website isn't very clear. As noted, while the website states that delivery can take 8 weeks or more (I believe they have some kind of arrangement with Eureka in Australia), delivery of this little fella only took 2 days, :-) Resin main body and tracks, with metal commander, hatch, funnel and a choice of either gatling gun or cannon. Needs a little bit of tidying up, but a very nice little vehicle, and full of character. I'm very happy with this purchase

In the doorway to the village Church is a dead ‘vagrant’ and in his pocket are stolen plans detailing the manufacture of German troop-carrying dirigibles. How the vagrant came by the plans no-one knows, however both the Society of Thule and the Prince of Wales’s Extraordinary Company have rushed men to the village to retrieve these vital documents..."

BATMAN: GOTHAM BY GASLIGHT by Brian Augustyn & Mike Mignola, from DC Comics, and part of it's Elseworlds series, where characters are re-imagined, is re-released this week in a new edition. Mike Mignola is the creator of Hellboy, and this book is available from, as they say, all good comic shops.
"It is 1895 and the world is in turmoil. The Great Powers compete for resources and the latest technology, and an undeclared and secret war rages between them all. This is battleground of the Adventuring Companies. These clandestine agents of the Great Powers operate in the shadows, matching skills and wits in pursuit of the newest scientific formulae or powerful occult artifacts. In Her Majesty’s Name sets these adventuring companies against each other in one-off encounters and in longer narrative campaigns. Companies are usually comprised of just 4–15 figures and two players could easily play three games in an evening, making an on-going campaign a highly viable option. In Her Majesty’s Name has been designed to allow maximum versatility for the player – if you can imagine it, the system will help you build it. There is, however, a wealth of material provided in the book, covering weird science, mystical powers, and a range of pre-generated adventuring companies, including the British Explorers’ Club, the Prussian Society of Thule, the US Marine Corps, the Légion Étrangère, the revolutionaries of the Brick Lane Commune, ancient Egyptian cults, and the mysterious Black Dragon Tong" Visit North Star for more information:-
