Cinder King: Skraeling’s Fork

The ride back from the mines was subdued. Our heroes had succeeded at securing a supply of Black Powder but at a hefty price. The bodies of your fallen soldiers were carefully loaded into one of the carts for proper burial back at the camp, mostly out of respect and tradition, partly because you did […]

Miniature Monday

Another Monday and the tide of evil continues to roll in. Today’s war band consists of a creepy Necromancer who apparently still gets his hands dirty digging up his own material. (It’s hard to find good help these days. Apprentices sign on, think they can skip Cadaver Assembly and go straight to Reanimation. *tsk, tsk, […]

Miniature Monday

It’s Monday, time for more miniatures. Here’s another war band for the forces of darkness, led this time by a Tiefling Sorcerer. He’s backed up by a demonic barbarian, two hell knights, and a vampire assassin. This is a nasty crew in close quarters or on a crowded table where cover negates long ranged attacks. […]

Miniature Monday

Another Monday warband, Baddies this time. These guys never got named in our previous games and I’m fighting the urge to get alliterative right now and call them something like “Ruinwyrm’s Red Raiders” or “Cryptwail’s Crimson Company”. All Reaper, all metal, there’s a chunky, massively armored warrior with a commissar helmet on the left. Political […]

Cinder King: The Giant’s House

The Cinder King is coming. Hordes of shambling undead, slavering ghouls, gibbering cultists, and reanimated skeletons mass on the west bank of the Tigeria, waiting for the enslaved survivors of Karlsberg to finish the barges needed for the crossing. Grotesque overseers spend these pitiful lives in lavish cruelty, whipping them to a feverish pace. The […]

Cinder King: Fire on Wael’s Bluff

General Montsigaard is tight-lipped with pain, seated in a folding chair in the command tent. A crisp new uniform accents his drawn face and three days of patchy gray stubble. Blood still seeps through his bandages. The General’s tent buzzes with a constant flow of dispatch runners who stumble in and out, vacant-eyed with exhaustion. […]

ZONA ALFA: Yuri’s Crew

After a spate of recent Zone tours turning sour, Yuri Bonyev is shifting away from working as a freelance guide and moving into what is euphemistically known “retrieval work”; searching the Exclusion Zone for valuable salvage and artifacts. In preparation for ZONA ALFA‘s official release, I started modifying figs from The Assault Group’s Modern Russians […]

HARDWIRED Mission: Kittens and Memes

Down two members last Tuesday eve, Derek didn’t want to launch Scene 1 of our Savage Worlds/Interface Zero game, so we played a quick HARDWIRED mission instead. Objectives: 1. Rescue a box of kittens from the roof of the district medical clinic, and 2. upload subversive, anti-corp memes to the Smartglass ad-board across the street. […]
