Oooh, clicky thing!

In the world of gaming "clicky thing" is more than just another checkbox on an LJ poll - it's likely to refer to any of WizKids' range of click base games, from Mage Knight to Crimson Skies.

They're a quick and interesting way to get into figures-based tabletop gaming, and I already own a pile of Mechwarrior and some Indy HeroClix (for the 2000AD characters!). I find the rules and backgrounds interesting, and the quality of the models has improved dramatically over time (and unlike jaq, I don't have the patience to paint minatures!).

A recent arival in their range has been Shadowrun Duels - a game using much larger, more detailed, figures, and elements from FASA's classic fantasy/cyberpunk crossover Shadowrun role playing background.

I've been looking at these for a while, and finally succumbed and bought my first figure yesterday. Silver Max is a dwarf rigger, a tech hacker character. As the blurb on the WizKids' Shadowrun site says - "So he’s short . . . he’s got tech." I like that attitude.

Is this a thinly veiled Christmas Present list? ;@)

No, just more of the sharing "neat stuff" agenda I have for my LJ...
