Tactical Flannel: flannel shirts tough enough to fight in

"Tactical Flannel": it's a flannel tough and comfy enough to fight in.

Flannel shirts — for centuries we’ve enjoyed wearing them. That’s no exaggeration neither! Actually, its a bit of an exaggeration, but wtf, we get excited. Read on if you like flannel shirts.

First seen in Wales back in the 16th century (think Queen Elizabeth I, Bill Shakespeare, Ivan the Terrible timeframe), the fabric is thought to have made its way here to the United States circa the Civil War years.

We like flannel shirts for all kinds of stuff. We like ’em for everyday use, for camping, for wearing to the range, for wearing to them to the range, hell some of our guys have worn them on missions in places where there isn’t any good toilet paper and assholes sometime shoot at ya.

Among the many benefits of backing us on Patreon is access to the loot we hand out to our supporters. We’ve given a lot of swag and plunder away since we first called the banners.  Unfortunately, we’re not terribly bright so we didn’t record it all or post it online.

That’ll change now. As we go forward we’ll update this page with new contests and giveaways (or the big ones, anyway). We’ll also announce on Instagram (@house.morningwood), so be sure to keep an eye on that frequency too.

Sorry. Female Space Marines would attract Space Bears

Kinpatsu Cosplay: WH40K Space Marine

A couple of years ago, military-related news feeds were full of stories about female Ranger School graduates, female infantry officers for both the Army and the Marine Corps, even a large number of female enlisted Marines headed for SOI (the terrestrial School of Infantry mind you; nothing to do with any Space Marine training).

It wasn’t too much later that we began hearing the all too predictable calls that females also be allowed to fight in the ranks of the Legiones Astartes (the Emperor‘s Space Marines).

REDhead Friday

busty redhead: a sexy redhead in M81 woodland camo body paint for RED Friday

Redhead. It’s the first and more lascivious half of “REDhead Friday.” It can (or should) evoke images of the “sexy redhead” institution (and trope). There are dangerous redheads in popular culture, redhead MILF types in many of our favorite training films, entire social media channels dedicated to the busty redhead, and redhead cosplay at any con you go to. But what does REDhead Friday mean?

Richard Kilgore and Jake Call started using the term “REDhead Friday” over on Breach-Bang-Clear several years ago (yeeeaaars ago). It was an admittedly salacious nod to “RED Friday” (q.v., down below). We originally said something like, “Wearing a red shirt is all well and good, but why not also admire a gorgeous redhead?”

Oh. Sorry.

Grunts: lascivious.

Anyway, REDhead Friday was, not surprisingly, a favorite feature of the Mad Duo’s fans and site regulars.

We still think it’s a good idea. And since so many people want us to bring that column back…

5e Beholder – a ridiculous distraction even by my standards

5e Beholder

It is no secret that I — like Lord Chillycock (Ryan)1, Lord Acuto (Aaron)2, and Lady Charmagaryen (Amanda)3 — enjoy getting my dork on. A chance conversation recently with my sons led to a discussion of monsters available to people playing various games using the online RPG software Roll20 (Roll20.net). They were looking for one monster and its “token” particularly,  without success: the Beholder 5e (and later, as it turned out, the Pathfinder Beholder).
