Lately I’ve been craving a Skirmish level game. I looked at Infinity and Malifaux and neither one appealed to me. I stumbled upon MERCS right around the time their Kickstarter was ending and I ended up backing it because with all the stretch goals I was getting a shit ton of minis for free.
One thing led to another and this weekend I drew up some plans to make foam core buildings for MERCS. I figure these can be used in Warmachine just as easily (if not with as much density) so I’ll put them up on the site. Continue reading
So I have been hinting for a little bit on the podcast about a super secret project I was working on. It is finally time for the official unveiling!
Dawnguard Destors riding My Little Ponies!!
As fate would have it there was one thing that could actually make me excited to play Destors.
This update begins with the making of a module.
This piece was actually made by my significant other Heather but I insisted on taking some progress pics as she went.
It started with a cutout for an exposed sewer pipe trench. She added tiles to the flat section of the module.
Some more progress on our slowly-moving table-building adventure,
Started putting down texture for quarter number 2. Used some bit from Pegasus Hobbies’ Chemical Factory Kit. This kit is full of wonderful little bits for steampunk buildings and terrain.
Another update on the progress of this table.
The first quarter board started with gluing down paving tiles made of plywood rectangles. These plywood rectangles and squares are from Michaels and are actually deceptively expensive. A bag of them is about $5 and doesn’t cover as much as you think it will.Next I used beans to give a cobblestone texture. I’m not sure what kind they were but I had to look around a lot before I found beans that were the right size. Continue reading
I’ve been working on doing a city themed table on and off for the better part of a year. The only thing mythical about it is the myth that I might ever finish it. Its a bit of a complicated undertaking so its hard to work on it continuously for long periods of time.
Lately I’ve been getting some motivation (and more importantly, HELP) from my good friend Aaron and we’re closer than ever to having this bad boy finished. I posting here some of the WIP shots. Continue reading
I am working on building up a stock pile of terrain to host some gaming nights at my place. Today I am working on some trees and forests.
Here is a brief tutorial. Continue reading
I got together with Aaron on Sunday and did some work on our terrain projects.
I spent most of the day playing with my new airbrush, afraid to actually paint anything, but Aaron produced this beautiful piece.
