These little guys were an impulse buy at Origins this summer.  They are made by Reaper Miniatures and are part of the Chronoscope line.  They are meant for 28mm heroic scale, but are short, about 20mm tall.  They come with a Warmachine size bases and were intended to be two to a base.  I rebased them on pennies and painted them similar to my Brigade Games 28mm invaders.  I’ve included a couple comparison shots.

So, I did not take very many pictures at Origins this year.  There are a few reasons for this, but the main one is that I was too busy playing to take them.  I had a great time this year.  Another factor is that there were fewer of the large scenic displays of previous years.  With limited time, I largely took pictures of a few things that either caught my attention or I had promised to take pictures of.

With that out of the way, here are a few pictures of an Alice in Wonderland themed board that Reaper was using for their Warlord game.

While I did not take nearly as many pictures as I would have liked, I had a great time at Origins this year.  2009 had a depressed feel to it with the economy forcing many to scale back or not attend.   This year, while relatively smaller, was much more upbeat.  Those who were there were because they loved it.  Some of the smaller names had great product launches and got a lot of exposure.  So here are the last few random pictures.

I did not get to play this one, but I did grab a few pictures.  One of the great things about big cons is that there are so many great games that you don’t see played a lot around.  This was an Ogre game with great miniatures.  The table was always full when I walked by.

TechCommander is a great new game that saw it’s official release at Origins.  I bought the rulebook and a pair of MSVs (mechs) to work on.  It’s worth your time to check out.  It uses a lot of interesting ideas and is unique in that it embraces advances science fiction technology instead of being a WW2 game with sci-fi icing.  This post is another picture dump, so enjoy the giant stompy robot goodness.

I played some Sailpower at Origins and my mostly completed ship suffered the fate of all ships who sail before being christened, ill luck and an untimely demise.  My adventurers longboat became really useful as the crew sailed away after they lit the kegs as a surprise for boarders.  Lots of pics after the jump.

I took a number of pictures from the two Deathrace games that I played at Origins.  Bryan Borgman ran the games and they were a blast!  More pictures after the jump.  Warning, there are lots!
