Wooden Robot Factories at Full Steam!
World Domination [Convention] season is nearly upon us. This year Skull and Crown starts off by hosting four ( yes-IV!) Wooden Wars games in the Grand Foyer of KublaCon in South San Francisco! I've got a lot to do before then and now, so, I called in a few favors...

|Rusty, Evil Clampers. Note the one eyed bucket head and two clampers!|

Last weekend I had a Robot Assembly Day here at Fossworks Flange and Phibulatronics Factory. My(evil) pals Peter and Simon (bar Sinister) were a great help in getting Phase 1 of the great robot armies off the ground for the upcoming convention season. I'm running two games of Quarks Rivet, a classic retelling of those brave souls who, for the love of Queen Victoria and their own skins, fought off the waves of robots under the command of Baron Bomburst!
|Peter, aka Baron Bomburst- a great friend and great help!|
The other two games I'll run are a classic Wooden Wars Napoleonic battle (possibly including a bridge, as the last one was quite exciting) and a Wooden Wars Task Force battle.
|Baron Bombursts new secret weapon.|
In the meantime, I've been getting lots of inquiries about my wooden ships, and about independent commissions for Wooden Wars soldiers. I believe I'll have some ships for sale at KublaCon and am currently working on two design commissions for customers which I hope to share in the near future. I'll give you a hint now though - they are made of wood!
That's all for now. For those of you going to Salute! this year, be sure to take lots of pictures for me. I plan on being there next year running Wooden Wars for sure!
|Soon- your chance to be awarded with the Steel Dragoon.|
