4. French Foreign Legion company for In Her Majesty's Name. Done! Huzzah!
5. Sky Pirates company for In Her Majesty's Name. Another triumph and complete. Now all they need is a ship . . .
This was the quarter of the big move to our dream house which, needless to say, reduced my 4th quarter production quite dramatically. On the other hand . . . we saw the premier of the Templar Knights in the United States for In Her Majesty's Name in the famous adventure of "Teddy Roosevelt and the Wild, Wild Wicked Witch of the West (Part 1 and Part 2)!
(L to R) Teddy Roosevelt, Sir Ralph, Sergeant Josiah, Grandmaster Sir Hugues de Payens and The Bounty Hunter. Note the bucket of water in the background. As they advance, Teddy states, "No man is worth his salt who is not ready at all times to risk his well-being, to risk his body, to risk his life, in a great cause."
"Kill all on the train. I will deal with these supposed heroes."
"Well lookie thar. Flying mechanical monkeys"
"Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything", advises Wyatt Earp. Teddy replies, "No. I'm not a good shot but I shoot often."
Wolves! Where did they come from? Here comes the WWW's reinforcements from the north of the action.
Special Agent Sawyer moves to a more advantageous position to engage the Winkies.
Wow. What a game! The monkeys used to be the red shirts of WWW's company but came into their own (-4 to hit while flying) and the Winkies are more durable than imagined. The surprise attack of the wolves almost tipped the scales but the game started to slip away from the bad guys when Wyatt Earp gunned down the gargoyle. Neither team achieved their objective though and the final score was Templars 26, WWW 15. The question is, with the Witch King locked up, WWW loose and the Professor pulling the strings from the center of his web, where will evil strike next? Will the ruby slippers and a certain consulting detective show up soon?
All of this has given me an idea for a campaign that will be known as the War of the Witches . . . unspeakable horrors, a league of assassins, Scotland Yard's greatest, the Imperial Chinese, Oz invaded, Opar defended, tea drunk and bold talk from a one-eyed fat man. The Secret War of 1895 is going to heat up in 2019.
