We played Frag at the Keep yesterday afternoon. (I got a strip pencilled during the game — I needed to be thinking outside the box, and it worked. The game was outside of its box).
Jason’s friend from Back East had sent him a box chock full of Heroclix, most of which were cheesy, ne’er-do-well heroes, and some of which were generic bad guys, like “Henchman” or “Thug.” I sifted through the box for figs that looked like they’d make good Frag figurines, and wouldn’t you know it? I found more than a dozen, and they were all figs that Jason was willing to part with for nothing.
So we played with figurines instead of the factory-shipped standups. The only problem is that the Clix bases are a little big and unwieldy.
Last night I brought them home and with the help of my Exacto knife and a heavy glove, I separated all the figs from their bases. Next up on the plan is to take Patches with me to the Keep, buy some small square bases, and superglue the figs to their new homes. Why involve Patches? Because he has seen said figs, and loved them so much he took them to bed with him. He is VERY interested in What Becomes Of Them.
I still need to paint the PvP figs, but that’s a project for a MUCH more ambitious week. I’ve still got cartooning to do, you know.
