New Terrain and ZP pictures

Coming off the holiday break, last night’s game session was more shooting the breeze than miniature foes. Everyone was more intent on hanging out and chatting than getting serious about a game. That said we did a quick brawl that let me put two new terrain pieces on the table: a ruined apartment building and a swamp. The building is an MDF kit, the swamp pieces scratch- built with wood bases, foam core, water effects, flock and Woodland Scenics tall grass.

We used Zona Perestrelki – our STALKER-flavored skirmish rules – for quick combat.

The battle ground: a refueling station eleven kilometers inside the north perimeter of the Zone.

There’s more ZP in the pipeline, but for the foreseeable future, we’ll be doing old-school RPGs (both Interface Zero Cyberpunk and straight up DnD) and a short ASOBH campaign, “The Treasure of Sagra-Bayar.” I’m finishing the brushwork on the character figs this week and will post photos later.

In the meantime, corny as it sounds, I was struck by a deep sense of gratitude when the guys walked in last night; it’s a great hobby with great people and I’m glad to be a part of it.

Have a good day.

And if you’re in a STALKER mood, A Prayer to Saint Strelok is available for your reading pleasure. Spasibo!

  1. The miniatures are awesome and beautifully painted. Where might they be from?

    1. Thanks much. Those are from Lead Adventure’s “The Last Project” line.

  2. Wonderful setup, really shows your love for the setting! I really like terrain that tells a story.

    1. Thank you. Guilty as charged; I think the STALKER aesthetic is the best Post-Apoc setting going. (with Fallout/50’s retro a close second) And I I don’t always succeed but I want games to be evocative and engaging.

  3. Hey, I’ve got a similar swamp project on my workbench for this year. I’d love to hear some more details about how your went about crafting yours…

    1. So Litko irregular MDF bases, foam core, flock, and Woodland Scenics water, and some tall grass/tufts. (can’t recall the company at the moment) Done is stages. Easy enough.

  4. Sure.
