7th Voyage - Creepy Hollow: The Wrath of the Hessian
« on: March 25, 2019, 07:39:20 PM »
Greetings, all and sundry.

The weekend before last saw us running a 7thV game, based on the Headless Horseman writeup in The Witching Hour from Crooked Dice.

Hie thee hence, if you will, unto my blog: https://tempestsinateapot.blogspot.com/2019/03/creepy-hollow-wrath-of-headless-hessian.html

Regards,
Keith F.

"Halt, in the name of the great Jehovah and the incorporated village of Mount Pleasant!"  Too good! lol

Cheers, lads, for the kind words. the 7th Voyage rules are every bit as fun as 7TV 1st Ed.

The "Great Jehovah" line was inspired by one of the players, who was a local historian from the Sleepy Hollow/Tarrytown, NY area.  He had mentioned that, in 1780, when Major John Andre was arrested, the Continental officer did so "In the name of the great Jehovah and the Congress of the United States."

Adding "the incorporated town..." part made it sound a bit like the first "Ghostbusters" film. Silly, when said with a straight face.  :D

Good point!

I’m still waiting for the “right ones” to come along, however ...

Great looking game!
Is the headless horseman figure from Blue Moon?

ivor 13: You are correct. All the minis except the grave ghouls (which are Grenadier) and militia are Blue Moon 28s.  Even the militia are Old Glory French and Indian war figs.  I find the OG/Blue Moon figs fit the bill nicely.  :)

The game looks great, and I love the period. Could I trouble you to measure one of the male figures to the eyes? I have picked up the impression Blue Moon may be in the 30-32mm range, but would be grateful to have it confirmed. I'm hoping they are larger than 28s, as I'd like to get some of the civilian packs to use with Reaper and Iron Kingdoms figures, but 28mm scale would probably be too small for me. Thanks if you can!
