GtB: Daily Miniature Manual #73 ‚Äď Avatar (Corvus Belli)

Daily Miniature Manual

Thought I’d do a comparison of the different ‘Avatar’s’ from all the different games, by looking at them as they can be used in GtB. First up it’s the one from Infinity; which I took on a stomping spree last night, and did, indeed, make a big mess of my opponents’ forces ūüôā

Been around a while, but you can’t say that this isn’t a great model. Made slightly better by the fact that she can reap an entire field of corn within an hour…

Long time no post – not Good

Again¬†I’m¬†rattling out the ol’ apologies for not posting, but while doing many other things¬†I’m¬†just finding my muse again.

Decent has not moved on much from the last time¬†I¬†mentioned it, but as an update it’ll be¬†available¬†in both digital and ‘real’ format, and¬†I’m¬†currently getting a friend to work on Good: the App (which basically has all the character building/miniature bonuses on it as well as Good/Bad recording, witch brief power descriptors) – should be fun…!!

Annoyingly I totally forgot to get the Halloween special powers uploaded on the website – so looks like it’ll have to wait until next year – DOH!

As a bit of a side my local club have got a proper website now http://www.sadwc.co.uk which is nice, and i’m off to a couple of shows in the new year – still debating whether or not to attend the UK games Expo again this time round.

 

Anyhoo – Stay Good!

Good: the Holiday

Not been much going on in the world of GtB at the moment – too busy with my numerous other projects, the family & work in general.¬†However, one of the Good: the Battle Co-Authors¬†did send me this holiday snap, that I just needed to post up. –

Not entirely sure where he went, but it is probably the furthest travelled copy of GtB so far…

 

Good: the Video Interview

Look it’s GtB being explained at the Games Expo 2012!

 

GtB at Eastern Front 2012

Sorry about the lack of posts (again) but I’ve just been too busy with all the other things going on in my life.

That being said Good: the Battle will be at Eastern Front Wargames show in Norwich on 16th¬†September¬†at the Wargame Miniatures Stand – so i’ll be able to give demos and the like to anyone who fancies it. Giving out free ‘Bad but in a Good way’ dice with every purchase too ūüôā First few purchases of the GtB Complete collection will also get a Project Good T-Shirt – yipee

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…
