Gave the Savage Worlds combat system a quick test drive last week. Broke out a couple of my scratch-built interior boards and had a salvage crew escort a technician through an abandoned research facility. Lights were out but of course the automated defenses were still online.
Here are some quick shots
There were five crew members in all: Boss, Second, a Tech with Repair bots, a Medic, and a Gunner. The scrawny young-Einstein hung back out of the line of fire and allowed the crew to tackle the drones.
In preparation for our upcoming cyberpunk RPG games, (both Pathfinder and Savage Worlds iterations) the tabletop miniature gamer in me demanded suitable 3D terrain. Can’t have chrome and mirrorshade minis blasting away on mere gridded map tiles, can we?
So I went for a low cost, minimal labor 2 x 3 playing area using WorldWorks ‘Streets of Titan’ tiles and Plast Craft buildings. Added some posters, some scatter terrain, and it’s starting to take shape. There’s another pile of inexpensive Mantic plastic scenics in the queue, and I’d love to pick up at least two suitable vehicles, but it’s pretty much done. Let me know your thoughts.
Couple things I learned:
Paper terrain hint: get matt sticker paper (full sheet) for your printer. Probably obvious to you all, (bit slow, I am) but it made the whole process far easier and cleaner.
Plast Craft Pre-colored Buildings are pretty cool. Got mine at Miniature Market. Price is good, pre-cut, printed colors and details are crisp. Easy assembly with super glue, add some posters and scenics to taste, and you’re good to go. Highly recommend.
