  1. Hey guys, I just wanted to share a project I've been working on. I've designed a zombie wargame with an rpg campaign system inbetween battles where players have to find food and scavenge for raw materials to craft new and creative weapons to take back into battle. I had to make a terrain board in order to do the playtesting, and after many a late night folding and cutting, here she is. I wanted a modular system using magnets so that it would hold together better. I went with a 3x3 so that I can also use it with malifaux. The board has sheet magnets glued down and then each tile has the magnetic attracting white sheets cut and put on the bottom. I'm using World Works Games (makers of terraclips) Mayhem products. But I didn't like how they designed their pillars that hold up the walls, so I came up with a better solution. I'm using 7mm brass tubes cut to length with a 1/4" disc magnet in the bottom. Because each map tile also has black magnet sheeting underneath the printed map picture, these really snap snug and stay that way. Next, the card posts that hold the walls slide over the tubes. and a close up Then, add in the walls and scatter terrain and details and a 2nd story last thing we need, zombies I've only got one done painting though. Still lots to do. I've got a whole set of items and rules made but we are still testing them out. There are skill trees with special abilities that can be purchased with xp (earned from killing zombies and winning matches). These are bought during the campaign phase. There are multiple avenues of customization. Here is a sample of the Sniper Skill Tree Adjust for Windage - This model may increase the value of one damage die by +1 when checking for accuracy in a shooting attack Camoflauge - Zombies do not spot you if you have not moved yet this turn Dead Eye - range +4 on Aimed Shots Elusive - This model may deploy last during the deployment phase Sharpshooter - Die rolls of Double 4 now count as headshots in addition to Double 5 and 6 Spotter - Target model within 18" gains the "large target' special rule. Shooting attacks verse Large Targets gain +1 accuracy. Shrouded - This model always gains a Soft Cover Bonus. If this model's weapon is also shrouded, this model cannot be targeted by shooting attacks if it has not moved yet this turn. There are skill trees for hand gun specialists, the gang leader, medics and explosive specialists. Also, during the campaign phase, there are a separate set of skill trees that are designed with crafting in mind. Namely, Leatherworking, Gunsmithing, Metal working and a few others. Here is a sample of the Gunsmith skills 3 point sling - This weapon is always at the ready Recoil pad - After rolling your damage pool, if that roll is effected by recoil, you may first set aside one die; that die does not adjust for recoil. Effects are cumulative Modified Trigger Pull - After rolling your damage pool, you may increase 1 die by +1 result Folding Stock - Add a folding stock to any Assault Rifle, that rifle gains “Strafe: After damaging with this weapon, you may push up to 3” in the direction of your choice. The gunsmith can also reload ammo and make specialized ammo FMJ - ignore hard cover bonus Hollow point - +1 damage pool Armor Piercing - Ignore armor and +1 damage pool Shotgun slugs - Your shotgun loses its blast radius but gains +4 range The Leather worker can get leather from animals (which are hunted at the woods) and make all kinds of gear, leather jackets, shields, archery gloves, leather wraps on melee weapons. There is a bunch of more content that I haven't shared yet. Does this game sound like something anyone would be interested in playing?
  2. WYRD ANNOUNCEMENT: Our miniatures will no longer be Made in China. Starting with the Dead Rider, we are now having them Made in Japan.
  3. Somewhere further still, deep, deep in the heart of the Bayou, is the Hag's Hut. The Has has lived in the Bayou for as long as anyone knows. She may very well predate the opening of the Breach. It is said that if you find the Hag, and beat her in a game of chance, you may have your heart's desire. Tread carefully though, for if you lose, something wicked this way may come for your soul...
  4. Inspirations: Genesis 6:4 The Nephilim were in the earth in those days, and also after that, when the sons of God came in unto the daughters of men, and they bore children to them; the same were the mighty men that were of old, the men of renown. Revelation 9:1-3 And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. 3 And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. The Nephilim were the offspring of Fallen Angels that came to earth and had offspring with human women. It's is theorized they are the reason for the great flood. But where does the spirit of something born of angels go when it is killed? Some theorize, they went to Hell and that is where Demons come from. It is also theorized that when the key to the bottomless pit is opened, the Nephilim (Locusts) will return. The rabbit hole goes even deeper when you do some research and you find out that CERN (the largest particle accelerator located in Swizterland) appears to be trying to open this very doorway. A top guy at CERN has even been quoted as saying "...that the titanic machine may possibly create or discover previously unimagined scientific phenomena, or "unknown unknowns" - for instance "an extra dimension". "Out of this door might come something, or we might send something through it," said Sergio Bertolucci, who is Director for Research and Scientific Computing at CERN, briefing reporters including the Reg at CERN HQ earlier this week. If you want to know more, do some research on youtube about CERN opening portals
  5. From the album: Spectre's Road to 100% Painted

    I tried to use Mako's Tips about spot colors by using the Orange (which is complementary to Blue). and since I'm using a blue/green color, I was hoping the spot color would contrast nicely.
  6. I've been researching into Model Railroad buildings in search of buildings for a Wild West Board. I have whittled it down to the following so far. I really like Laser Cut Wood kits because of their realism look after being weathered with stains and chalks. The main drawback is they are time consuming to put together, but there is enjoyment there just as in painting models. They are also on the expensive side as well (ranging from 40-75 each) so that price point can be a barrier as well. HO scale = 1:87 28 mm scale = 1:76 so they are pretty close. Scatter Terrain - however, this being HO scale, I'm not 100% it would be large enough for cover.
  7. Inspiration: During the early years of the 20th century, pyrite was used as a mineral detector in radio receivers, and is still used by 'crystal radio' hobbyists. Until the vacuum tube matured, the crystal detector was the most sensitive and dependable detector available – with considerable variation between mineral types and even individual samples within a particular type of mineral. A newer commercial use for pyrite is as the cathode material in Energizer brand non-rechargeable lithium batteries So I thought maybe Pyrite is the Secret Ingredient in Ramos's constructs that he uses to help control them by radio. And he already operates the Hollow Marsh Mine, here is has tricked 3 foolish crooked men into thinking they are mining for Soul Stones.

    ok, one more tease. This is my first time ever making a terrain piece. Just waiting for the sculptamold to dry so I can base paint it, then have to let that dry over night again. Gonna be down to the wire on this one.
