  1. Got mine from Bunnings, they have a few different sorts but they don't always stock them on the shelves so it may be a special order https://www.bunnings.com.au/gunnersen-1220-x-810-x-3mm-pvc-expanded-foam_p0390217 https://www.bunnings.com.au/1200-x-900-x-3mm-black-pvc-foam-board-sheet_p1010816 https://www.bunnings.com.au/suntuf-6mm-1200-x-600mm-white-pvc-foam-sheet_p1010817
  2. It's been some time since I updated my blog... Somehow personal life just seems to get in the way... So here is a few little tidbits that I have been working on: Teddy wants to go for a journey through time and space! Nobody told Teddy he would have to water the flowers... Now they are all gone. Teddy wants his friends to sit with him, but now that he has hugged all of them they have all gone home.
  3. Spring is here and that means it's time to prepare for the Australian Malifaux Nationals at Cancon 2019. The Australian Malifaux Nationals is an annual event held during CanCon in the wonderful city of Canberra. It is Australia's (2nd) largest and most diverse tournament in Australia and is a great chance to test your skill against a broad range of players from all around the country. The Nationals are for both beginner and experienced players alike. Date: 26th - 27th Jan 2019 Where: Cancon 2019 - Exhibition Park in Canberra (EPIC), Corner of Flemington Road and Northbourne Avenue, Mitchell, ACT, 2911 Tournament Details: 6 games, Fixed Faction, 50ss crews Tournament Organiser: Sebastian/Dhampir Email: admin@malifauxcanberra.org CanCon troubles: If you have any problems with ticketing or the broader Cancon venue, contact Tim - cgsinc@tpg.com.au Entry fee: $60 for two days ($50 for one day, or just an additional $10 if you are already playing in another tournament.) Player pack: http://malifauxcanberra.org/wp-content/uploads/Malifaux-Nationals-Player-pack-2019.pdf Ticket available from: https://cgs.asn.au/cancon/register-now/ If you have any questions or would like more information, don't hesitate to get in contact.
  4. This is a really cool idea, I will have to agree with you about it only being for demos as it poses a problem when determining 'corners' for certain schemes and strategies. You could however write some house rules to get around this though.. Can't wait to see the finished product!
  5. I like the idea of the PVC lumber to reduce warping and weight. Idea stolen
  6. Details: 3 games 50ss Fixed Faction $20 entry (Tickets available at the store) Where: Jolt Games Canberra 56 Hoskins street, Mitchell, Australian Capital Territory
  7. They soak in a little, but you have to touch up the cut edges.
  8. Combination of paddlepop sticks (coffee stirrer for all you statesiders) and balsa. It's black acrylic with a small amount of either green or yellow ochre added to it and watered down to a very thin wash, then the wood is soaked in batches of the different washes so that they all have a different hue. This is all done before construction, then just mix them up and you build.
  9. I have plans to add some whinches to the warehouses for this exact purpose, but I'm sure that could be a cool addition to the other buildings too.
  10. So I think it's time for an update, January has been a busy time organising the Australian Malifaux Nationals, with the highlight (for me at least) was the creation of our custom Supply Wagons for use with Gaining Grounds 2018. Here it is in it's raw form: And here was one of the players painted and customised version: And onto terrain... The quarantine table took a bit of a step back while I frantically worked on a demo board to use at the Nationals, the idea being that I utilise the weatherboard Victorian house from my first post onto a small 18" x 18" table for use with Henchman hardcore/Demos. There is still lots that I want to finish; more ground cover, quick reference in the grey set-up sections. The table had a game of Henchman hardcore on it and it worked really well, but there are some major bottle necks through the house that need to be addressed. So it's time to make some more doors and holes in the walls. And lastly, I've gotten back to the quarantine board, staining of the wood elements begins:
  11. Tickets sales have closed, and we have only 4 more sleeps to go! To get you excited, I would like to show you one of the Supply wagon tokens.
  12. Yep for single day entry as well. You just need to purchase a ticket ASAP (my cut off to send the designs to the printer is Sunday evening). Everyone who has bought a ticket by then will get the tokens and wagon included. Yep, run annually and my plans for 2019 should be even more epic.
  13. I find that hazardous terrain is most important for lures, pushes and causing bottlenecks. If you take the Mysterious Emmissary's Hungry land ability it places a 50mm hazardous terrain marker, with a 3" 'threat' radius. Using this as a guide I wouldn't go larger than 6"-7" across and no smaller than 50mm.
  14. In case you are still undecided about coming to the Malifaux Nationals here's a little sweetner. All ticket sales before the 10th of January will receive (thanks to Jackal Laser Designs) four 50mm Gaining Grounds markers (three Strategy Markers and one Supply Wagon); and thanks to Module-R Terrain, a small MDF wagon to sit atop your Wagon Marker. So get your ticket quick before it's too late.
