  1. Yup. thats pretty much it in a nutshell - okay, hours might be a slight exaggeration, I didn't mean to give the impression that it would add hours per NPC or per fight, but even 2-3 smaller fights, if you give every single NPC critical effects as written, could easily add an hour or two for the total game, especially if you have a lot of players. i had one fight that was fucking hilarious the NPC ended up losing an arm, a leg, and was bleeding out before he finally died.
  2. pretty good! Sixteen tons is always my go-to one shot for new players, just because it's simple, but has most if not all of the core concepts in it to teach people the various mechanics, it's a very, very well done module. that said, as far as advice goes - really, this goes for TTB as a whole, combat as written kind of, really drags on, so I'd suggest you just ignore the critical effects for lower rank monsters, and only use that for the "bosses" so to speak. otherwise it can take HOURS hoping to get lucky enough to get a critical effect that can actually kill the enemies.

    Free RPG day? The Show Must Go On?

    Yeah. I didn't hear anything specific, just that my store didn't have any wyrd stuff, and 2 or 3 places didn't make the cut off date, we put 2 and 2 together and figured wyrd must've been one of them but no confirmation anywhere.
  4. This upcoming saturday, june 16th at 1PM, I'll be running the one shot adventure sixteen tons at Rune and Board! All needed materials will be provided; just come on in, play some games and have a good time! RSVPs are available at https://www.meetup.com/PDXers/events/251663864/

    Free RPG day? The Show Must Go On?

    So Wyrd did make it for free RPG day? huh, my store didn't get anything and assumed they didn't submit by the cut off date. weird. Must've just not ordered it before they sold out i guess?

    picking pig's pigment?

    So, I finally got into gremlins and working on painting them, but the one thing that's bothering me is, I can't find any good methods for painting the pigs, the wild boars are easy enough but the pigs; old major, lenny's pig, etc are an issue. I can't find a good color for that off-white shade of pink that I' looking for. advice?

    Airbrushing malifaux?

    here's my advice to people who want to use airbrushes; Understand that an airbrush is a tool. it is not a replacement for a regular paint brush. just like you wouldn't use a base brush or dry brush to paint an entire miniature, do not think you can paint an entire miniature with an airbrush and expect it to look good; handled well, you can and will get some amazing, AMAZING effects with an airbrush. but airbrushed only minis always look awful IMO. that said; get a dual-action, gravity feed airbrush and an air compressor with both a pressure gauge and a pressure regulator valve-thingie..I'm not sure the technical term. with miniature painting you want a lot of control of the air pressure, nd you generally want a lower air pressure. that set up will give you the best result. edit: wow..aaand i just noticed how old this post is...
  8. Had to reschedule the day due to International Tabletop Day; everything in post is currently up-to-date for that.
  9. I'll be hosting a henchman hardcore tournament at Rune and Board in hillsboro Oregon on saturday May 5th, tournament will start be from 3 to 5:30 for a total of five rounds, assuming a good showing of people. The store opens at 1PM. Store is doing pre-registration so that we can get a rough idea of how many people will be showing up. All of the usual henchman hardcore and tournament rules apply Directions, store info, and event calendar can be found here: https://runeandboard.com https://www.facebook.com/events/2149782231713650/?ti=as edit: correction in the time, accidently put 6 to 8:30, meant to put 3 to 5:30; my mistake!

    Waldgiests, and Grootslang

    Oh yeah, absolutely okay. I usually just don't bother to clean up shit like that unless its work I plan on selling, or its for someone else.

    Waldgiests, and Grootslang

    Well, both models are based. just very subtly. I used the citadel mud texture paint, a bit of black wash, some glossy finish, and then a light dry brushing. I was hoping the glossy finish would show a bit more for a wet mud effect but, it's good enough.
  12. Haven't been as active around here as I'd like - mostly been busy with school and other things. - So I totally forgot to post these guys here! file sizes seem to be too large, so here are some imgur albums! https://imgur.com/a/Ku5mi https://imgur.com/a/HILFc
  13. Galaxy s6 edge. App says up to date, play store has no update.
  14. Yeah, I won't have any money for things for myself until just after the new year so I'd be kind of bummed if its a black friday sell only kinda deal.
  15. It says it'll be made available during the black friday sell, what are the odds of it being available after that?
