The White Monk’s Tower

“on we went, with every step a voice whispering in our ears that this was all folly…”   Our Advanced Song of Blades and Heroes campaign continued last week with our intrepid adventurers hiking into the foothills to locate the White Monk’s Tower. Rumors of treasure helped pull them on but a scroll hidden beneath […]

GameMatz War Zone mat

At this stage in my life, I’m fortunate to be able to game with some great guys. We enjoy different games, campaigns, different genres as well as each others’ company. It may sound weird, but it’s a genuine blessing. Because we play a lot of Post-Apoc and SF skirmish games, I took the plunge and […]

Wire Cutter Test Pieces

With a ruined castle looming on the horizon of our SOBH campaign, I picked up a hot wire cutter off Amazon. I made two very simple  test pieces to get a feel for how it works. It’s a very handy tool with loads of terrain-building potential. Nasty fumes aside, it cuts  1″ and 2″ insulation foam […]

Game Night: ASOBH

What little hobby time I have lately has been dedicated to Fantasy figs and terrain for our upcoming Advanced Song Of Blades and Heroes campaign. Also, I plan on entering three of the human warbands in this year’s Lead Adventure painting contest. While I can’t post pics of the pjs before the official entry date, […]

SoBH Terrain and Baddies

So the reason posts have been so sparse lately is I plan on entering this year’s Last Painter Standing contest over at the Lead Adventure Forum. Trick is, none of the figs can have been shown on the internet prior to entering, and my latest brushwork has mostly been focused on entries.  I don’t harbor […]

Junction Box Bunker no. 3

Gaming schedule is getting back on track next week. Here’s one of the new terrain pieces for the upcoming mini-campaign. Even if you don’t add detailing from your bitz box, Home Depot is an excellent source for inexpensive, interesting structures. A little spray paint, some drybrushing, and you’re good.

Sci Fi Interior Boards

A while back I wanted interior terrain for quick and dirty guncrawls. Five years teaching TTGs as part of an After School Enrichment Program and running a Game Room impressed me with the need for durability, simplicity and playability. Thus these Interior Boards were fabricated out of insulation foam and MDF, with minimum fiddly, breakable […]

Bug Hunt Demo Set – Terrain and Mech

Wanted to give an update with pix of some finished terrain pieces and the replacement Armored Combat Suit for the Terran force. Click images for larger versions. First the Terrain: These are JR Miniatures Ruined Research Station pieces and Armorcast Tech Walls mounted on MDF, along with styrofoam debris and bits. Limits the configuration but […]

Demo set – Part 1

Posted previously about the opportunity to run an “after-school enrichment class” on table top gaming. I’m scheduled to make a presentation and run a demo for interested students in early December, so that’s very cool. Figured I’d run a straight up Bug Hunt for the demo game. Here are some shots of the first phase […]

Gator Team: Pig Iron MOUT force

As promised, shots of my latest ‘skirmish set’: two squads, FAT-Man Exo suits (Full Armor- Tactical) and IFV transport. (courtesy of Old Crow) Re-watching the battle scene in Ralph Feinnes’ ‘Coriolanus’ inspired me to try Urban Camo. Still hunting for a suitable gun-sled drone to round this set out. I’m thinking the upcoming Khurasan grav-stuff […]
