FURY - In theaters now. The new World War II film from Director David Ayer, starring Brad Pitt, Shia Lebouf, Logan Lerman, Michael Pena and Jon Bernthal. The story is set during the last month of the European Theater war during World War II in April 1945. As the Allies make their final push into Nazi Germany, a battle-hardened U.S. Army sergeant in the 2nd Armored Division named Don "Wardaddy" Collier (Brad Pitt) commands an M4A3E8 Sherman tank called "Fury" and its five-man, all-veteran crew, fighting off the last remanents of fantical German resistance. There is an authentic Tiger I heavy tank that makes a commanding appearance in the film.

Jay White, a good friend and customer of Rick's Scenics terrain is an avid gamer and historian with some of the largest miniatures collections in the bay area. Jay also manages, edits and writes frequently on his heavily trafficked blog site known as Jay's Wargaming Madness. There are many rule set reviews, gaming photos, youtube "how to build or paint" videos and a commentary forum for signed up blog followers. In addition to gaming, Jay also reenacts and is a seasoned painter. Jay was one of the first gamers to review the Muskets and Tomahawks rule set for the French and Indian War and also Bolt Action WWII rule set from Warlord Games. Currently we spoke with him and he is working on Old West Minatures, the new laser cut compressed board buildings, and playing SAGA.

RICKS SCENICS presents "HELL OR HIGH WATER"
fast and fun wargaming rules for 20th century warfare!
(still in beta play test version)

Rick's Scenics fast-paced home brewed rules, "Hell or High Water" was play tested at Pacifcon in 2013 and Kublacon in 2014 using two different miniatures games featuring 28mm French Foregin Legionaires (minis by Artizan Design, Old Glory, Perry Miniatures and Great War Miniatures) who fought off the nomadic desert Bedouin tribes in the scorching sands of North Africa. In both games, the mighty Legion defended either an ancient Egyptian Temple ruin or a long forgotten Knights Crusader Bastion. The battle raged for a few hours eventually having scores of Arab Jihadim Black Riders and Bedouin tribal infantry routed by the last man standing Legionaires. Overall, participating games felt the High adventure from Hell or High Water. Designed by Rick Schuldt, Tibor Ipavic and Matt Hilzendrager, these rules inclyde easy to learn and fast paced move and shoot of shoot and move turns, bloody hand to hand engagements, variable weapon ranges and jamming or ammunition penalties, and an original morale system utilizing easy add or subtract percentages. All of this equals to an aggressive attack/defend mechanic for a fun set of convention rules.
So far the player response has been very great, so we are finalizing the details and trying to get something in print before the end of this year. As you know, it takes time and we are exploring a Kickstarter option to help with fund raising. If you are interested in supporting us on Kickstarter, please contact us for more details.
