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.

I saw Crimson Skies being played at Dragonmeet at the weekend. It looked quite good. I've been known to be a bit of a spod about WWI air combat games and this is close enough to be on interest.

However, too little time and a wish to do some roleplaying mean that I won't be indulging myself fo some time yet.
