Wasn’t There A Pulp Game About A Jade Buddha?
« on: April 14, 2019, 08:21:18 AM »
Or maybe a movie or book?  Or maybe it was made of crystal?

Anyway, check these out:



https://www.ebay.com/itm/Miniature-Dollhouse-Green-Plastic-Buddha-Figurine-7-8-H-WhiteGreen-Marbled/292870943452



https://www.ebay.com/itm/Miniature-Dollhouse-Green-Plastic-Short-Fat-Buddha-Figurine-3-4-H/382413519443

They would probably work best for 15mm, unless the figure has some special kryptonite-like properties that would make it highly sought after regardless of the small size.

Thoughts?

Our friend Grimm, who is no very active at the moment, ran a fantastic Pulp/Back of Beyond scenario involving a green Buddha. I've played it once a real romp and feast for the eyes. I believe there is a battle report here on LAF somewhere.


Nice find, by the way.

Hammers, do you mean a jade Buddha, or a golden one? Grimm did present a scenario involving a golden Buddha called "Doc Tomson and the Temple of Shambala." That thread is here:

Grimm was one of the most inspirational figure painters, terrain builders, and scenario creators among the early denizens of LAF. He must be busy doing something more important these days. Perhaps he is raising children?

Grimm was a terrific chap. He did some custom jungle trees once for me. I asked the Prof about him a few years back and all he could tell me was that he was out of the hobby after a bad break up. He was one of the most inspirational painters and terrain builders from LAF for sure. I sure do miss him here.

Anyway.....sorry to get too much off topic.
