Growing up in the 60s, I was a Cold War spy-fi show and movie junkie. (Back then, my dad was a real life spy with the CIA and traveled the world for months on end, though he always denied that he was a spy of course.) I loved many of those shows. They fueled my young imagination. But UNCLE always had a special place for me. Though I hated to read (ironic considering that I'm now an English instructor), I loved my UNCLE novels and comic books.
I've been waiting since the 1970s to see the show again. Now I get to watch it with my son, which will be a blast. Last night was the first episode, which is fairly weak. If you missed it, Amazon Prime Streaming shows it for free.
So if I love(loved) those shows, why not game spy-fi? Oh trust me. That is something I have been longing to do for a long time, but I was still trying to get over my dad's death at the time. Spy stuff is so tied up with my memories of him. But late this summer I finally came to terms with his passing away. It was like I suddenly woke up from a three-year slumber. Anyway...
As for rules, I've been sitting on the 7TV rulebook and some expansions for a while now. I also have most of the 1980's Victory Games James Bond RPG books. I have a bunch of Pulp rules as well. So I got that covered. I just have to decide what scale miniatures.
I like 15mm figures, but it seems there is a limited selection out there. Khurasan has their small spy-fi line that they just don't seem to be expanding. I'd have to research 15mm spy-fi figures more, but I imagine it would be harder than doing 28mm. Any suggestions here would be welcome.
So we'll see what happens. I need a fresh new project to work on so I can get out of my rut. (Ok, I have my 15mm Quar to work on but you know what I mean.)
