New Mouse Guard is up

The latest notes on Mouse Guard are up. Big, whalloping combat last night.

Mouse Guard RPG for the win!

The Mouse Guard Role-Playing Game just won this year’s Origin Award for Best RPG, beating Wizards of the Coast’s Dungeons & Dragons 4th edition and Pelgrane Press’ Trail of Cthulhu. Dave Petersen, the author of the comic books this RPG is based on, is justifiably proud.

In the same post, Petersen also points us to a most wonderful conversion and modelling project undertaken by Walter “Darkwolf” Harris. Harris started from Ewok action figures and converted them to posable Mouse Guard characters, including Saxon, Kenzie, Lieam, Sadie, Celanawe, Midnight, Rand, Conrad, and Gwendolyn. Do check his post to see lots of photos and a step-by-step description of the work involved.  I think my favourite is Celanawe.
