Family Tree – Ancestor Locations, Mom’s family

One of the things I’ve always wanted to do was mark on one map as many of the important locations in my Family History as I can find. I’ve always been told that my background is Polish, Ukrainian, German, Russian and a little bit of Gypsy.  I always joked that all my ancestors probably lived …

Battlestar Galactica Character Miniatures (part 6) – Crooked Dice Game Design Studio

The last miniature company that I ordered from was Crooked Dice Game Design Studio. More Cylons!  This time called “Argonauts” and mostly found under the “Villains and Monsters” section. They don’t have anything that really looks like Viper Pilots, but they have a ton of other very nice minis for all sorts of shows including …

Battlestar Galactica Character Miniatures (part 5) – Nexus Miniatures

The fifth stop on my tour of miniature companies was Nexus Miniatures. I finally found some great miniatures for Cylons, and as a bonus, some really good Viper Pilots as well. At the time there was an “Ancient Enemies” Deal on, which isn’t available at the time of this posting but the individual figures are, …

Battlestar Galactica Character Miniatures (part 4) – Tin-Soldier.com

The fourth company I ordered miniatures from was Tin-Soldier.com.  At this point I was looking more for something I could use as Cylons rather than humans.  I had ordered some Star Wars Super Battle Droids which I thought would work okay for the Re-imagined Cylons in a pinch, but wasn’t really happy with them.  I …

Battlestar Galactica Character Miniatures (part 3) – Reaper Miniatures

The third stop on my quest for Battlestar Galactica characters was Reaper Miniatures which has a huge selection of miniatures for all genres. I accidentally ordered one miniature on it’s own instead of adding them all to my cart and then placing the order.  I found out their site is a little odd when it …

Battlestar Galactica Character Miniatures (part 2) – Heresy Miniatures

The second stop on my quest for Battlestar Galactica character miniatures was Heresy Miniatures The miniatures came in a nice little box with additional bubble wrap inside and more snacks! These are multi-part miniatures which will require a little assembly, gluing on weapons for the most part. I ordered the Ship Crew Deal, which has …

Battlestar Galactica Character Miniatures (part 1) – Hasslefree Miniatures

I’ve been looking for some character miniatures for Battlestar Galactica for quite some time now.  Nobody is specifically licensed to  sell them, but I’ve ordered some from several different companies which I think will work quite well. Some are obviously designed to resemble BSG characters, others just happen to look close enough to use. I’m …

Five Elements Anthology

This was a fun read, several authors that all have to incorporate the same five elements into a story, and at a price of $1.25, it’s a pretty good deal. I thought all the stories were quite well done, some interesting little twists in a couple of them.   Buy at Amazon
