Return of the GtB Miniature Manual!

Yep – you read that right – it’s back! Starting tomorrow the miniature manual continues after over a year of absence.

Daily Miniature Manual

In case you are unfamiliar with the idea of the GtB Miniature Manual; essentially I find some miniatures that I like, then I list what powers they would get if they were to be used in Good: the Battle and Nice: the Expansion – a game in which you can use ANY miniature – regardless of scale!

Good: the Olympics – Part 2

The shot put made for an interesting event in which you need to roll for consecutive inches that the shot covers, the roll getting harder by one each time. Becoming ever more tactical it was quickly worked out what amount of Good was needed to be put into the rolls to secure a 2+ requirement all the way to the 7″ mark, however 1 is always a failure, and 1 always comes up… However it would seem that the Kamino training regime works as Mark’s Clone trooper came out no top.

From the shot, onto the Pole Vault. A run up, then stick a pole in a hole then jump – the key to this event was to get close to the bar and then you could ‘vault’ the last few 1/16ths with an unmodified 11+ roll. Having a Good run up helped as this height was added to the vault. Here the successful vaulters form a line and ignore the failure that was the Aidan’s Ninja. Meanwhile, Optimus gets ready to go…

Here’s what happened:

You can just see Optimus at the side of the landing mat…

Tony’s Sandworm takes the run up (Must have the pole in it’s mouth…

And the roll for the ‘Vault’:

Yep, Tony wins again…

Next, and final event was the Javelin. Stand somewhere behind the line. Run towards the Line. Throw the Javelin before the line. Simple.

It wasn’t exactly rocket science, but somehow two of us managed to fluff a roll and hit someone else, causing severe Bad damage. But fortuantely no-one died from any horrific injures. And those same two also managed to fluff every other attempt… Billy on the other hand actually managed to clear the entire table and have his Javelin ended up somewhere in the middle of the village hall.

Mwahahahahahahahaaa!!

Good: the Olympics Round-up Part 1 –

So here we have the run-down of the first ever Good: the Olympics! The Competitors were Aidan’s Ninja (apparently from Infinity), Tony’s Sandworm, Alex’s Optimus Prime Eraser, Billy’s Man with a Cricket Bat (Hasslefree), Mark’s Lego Clone Trooper, and my Vaettir Varbre (Tor Gaming).

The first Event was the 110m hurdles, and they’re under starters orders…

 

Optimus Prime stacked it at the first hurdle, along with the Clone Trooper who also fell at the the second, despite having the ‘Spring in his Step’ special power. The Vaettir made use of the Ghost special power and just phased straight through the hurdles.

 

Annoyingly Billy’s Miniature used switch on my Varbre and thus put me at the back and him at the front.

Obviously burrowing his way down the straight, Tony’s Sandworm wins the hurdles. Next Up is the hammer throw.

 Trying to make use of the ‘Whirly’ special power it was surely looking good for the Varbre…

It took us all a little while to get used to the mechanics of the whole spinning thing, but after a few goes we were whirling around all over the place. Here’s how the others lined up: 

And despite having no arms, the Sandworm destroys us all in the hammer with his massive throw (Must have vomitted it out)

Next we decided to go for a nice 200m Sprint, and after the lane decisions here’s how we all lined up;All we had to do was run to the finish line, but as it was a game of GtB special powers came into play, and again the Vaettir steamed intio the lead using all 40 Good to burn it round the track. Billy then switched places again and put me back at the start on turn 3… However due to the lane switch Billy nearly kills himself after taking Bad damage. Optimus then decided to blind everyone stopping them from attempting to run (with the exception of Mark’s Clone tropper), as any movement would have been in a random direction.

Tony again, saved it all up and engaged his Sandworm’s Haste power then completed the race by going 90 inches in a single turn!

Triple jump was up next, Hop skipping and jumping the Ninja claimed victory in this event (as he should do given that he had the jjuuummmp special power) – this was Optimus’ amazing attempt:

 

That’s a whole 1/16th of an inch he managed to jump there…

Shot put up next…

GtB Merchandising Madness – Fish-Hand T-Shirts!!

Having spent a large majority of yesterday evening trying to plan some more shenanigans for the UKGamesExpo, I got a bit side-tracked when looking into merchandising/promo for the day. The result of which is this:

Yes you can now wear Fish-Hand with pride, be the envy of all your friends, but in a Good way…
