  1. Hey folks, i´m pretty sure that many of you already know about it, but maybe there are also some people who don´t. I´m talking about Loot Studios. They provide on a monthly subscription basis some cool STL-Files for 3D-Printers. Every month they release a package with miniatures and suitable terrain with a different theme. These serve mostly for P&P games but the terrain they offer, also works good for Malifaux in many situations. Like this month for example is a true eldorado for every Bayouplay out there. The quality in details is just amazing. And there are other pieces in old bundles too, that fit really well. If you are joining now, and want some of the old stuff, you can purchase single packs seperatly. If you want to check out: www.loot-studios.com Greetings Sphynxy
  2. (Figured this should be in the proper subforum) Working on a swamp table for my first set of Malifaux terrain. Have a beautiful Deepcut studios mat on the way, and making some terrain pieces to go with it. Group shot of what I have so far (will be updated as that expands) Done so far: Alligator Statue (Ht 1 blocking/hard cover/severe) Serpent Statue (Ht 3 blocking/hard cover/impassible) A standalone tree (Ht 5 blocking/hard cover/impassible) A 12" straight river section (Ht 0 severe) Picture coming Soon(TM) An oval pond/lake about 9x7" at the biggest points, which can either be used standalone or connected to rivers (Ht 0 severe) with a small "boat bridge" (Ht 1, possibly 2, vantage point) Picture coming Soon(TM) A forest of "reeds" about 8x4" (Ht 4 dense/soft cover/severe) In the working: Another 12" straight river section (Ht 0 severe) with a tree around midway (Ht 5 blocking/hard cover/impassible) Have a small stack of wooden crates that just needs a decent paintjob and they'll go just fine on any Malifaux table (and speaking of that, I need to find a good way to paint Guild insignia for those) Planned: Raised swamp hut to optionally go in the middle of the pond (Ht ? blocking/hard cover/enclosed) 1 or 2 more standalone trees 45 degree river section (possibly 2) "split" river section 1 or 2 free-standing "walkways" which can optionally be used as bridge across river sections Stonework ruins, halfway sunk into the swamp (Ht 2-3-4, blocking/hard cover/climbable) To go with the ruins: a few toppled pillars (Ht 1, blocking/hard cover) Appropriately sized toy animals (snakes, gators and maybe some tentacles) to place on terrain pieces to indicate hazardous terrain. Possible ideas: Another, non-raised, swamp shack Another "reed forest" Guild drainage pump station, attempting to lower the swamp for exploitation purposes Sewage/drainage pipe coming in from off-table and ending in a pool of Ht 0, severe/hazardous sludge "Hills" or more accurately just wide areas of shored up/reinforced "raised ground" (would basically just serve as a large area where the play area is raised 1", so technically vantage point and probably blocking/hard cover as well) A small (smaller than Ht 1) hillock with a hole/tunnel leading into it, on a fairly wide base. Thinking a "monster lair" terrain piece that has no other effect than Hazardous. Very happy to take some feedback/input, as well as ideas for other cool things that might be found in the Malifaux Bayou!
  3. Hi, i am looking for a grass or field or swamp Malifaux playmat for my Gremlins crew. If you may have one to much or you don't need a mat anymore. Please write me. I would consider to trade for a glued but not primed war rabbit otherwise if paypal is agreed we could discuss a price. *New! I recently won the Special Bayou Gremlin out of the Mystery Box, which looks like one of the Bushwackers. Not Glued! Let me know if you are interested. Thx
  4. i bought Zoraida, aaand many people say i should take her outta the "swamp" but i dont know what to buy except i know i will need a nurse any suggestions would be greatly appreciated ^^
  5. Here are some pics of a swamp board I made and have been using. I wanted something modular, so it can be re-arranged for more playability, so it's nine pieces each one foot square. The basic design follows a step-by-step for a swamp board in an old issue of Ancible magazine -- I could track it down if anyone is interested. It works pretty well. If I was going to do it again (which I'm not! So, really, for anyone else who is interested in making something like this), I'd make it with more solid ground and less swamp: not because there's too much height-zero, severe terrain (I think that's a fine thing to have, you just have to make sure everyone knows in advance so they can pick a crew with it in mind), but because there isn't really enough room to put as much blocking and/or scatter terrain down as I would like to have. Any questions welcome. EDIT: The instructions I followed were in The Ancible Issue #8, in an article by Pat Ohta of Senji Studios. Senji Studio's website suggests downloading that issue here: http://www.senjistudios.com/4x4-swamp-board-tutorial-for-malifaux-or-warmachine.html for the modest price of $1.51 (currently). Pat's board is less modular, and much prettier.
  6. I have decided to start working in my own Malifaux table; it’s going to be a long and hard way, so I’m going to be updating this thread by stages. Also, I want that this thread can be useful for others that (like me,) never have approached to a project like this, so i’m in full-disclosure mode about the costs and the technics! (This thread has adopted the international system of units; be aware, burmans). 1.- Planification. (I've already have finished this stage, so i'm going a little fast trough it.) One of the things that I had to have in mind when I started with design of the table was that it had to be easy to transport so I could carry it from my house to clubs and stores. I first considered making something foldable, but I wanted to be able to work vertically, so I went with the modular option; four modules of 45x45 that can become a 90x90 table. It wasn't a big surface but I wanted that everything looks solid, so I thought that having some wood connections (btw, i’m not sure about how you call them; we use the words “pernos” or "espigas") on two sides of every module was going to be a good thing. This was my first concept: With that in mind, I started to think in the structure of the modules; for what I saw, the b€st solution was MDF for the wood and polystyrene for the filling. I needed to make something like this (side view): I went to some stores and check prices for some strips and boards; all the wood would have cost me around 15 € but I was going to also need lots of tools, so before buying it, I went to a local carpenter, show him my sketch and asked him how much would cost me. He told me that he will make me all the wood work for 40 €, so I took the easy way even if was a little more expensive. I also use the trip to get some polystyrene boards for 5 €; I bought much more that I needed because I wanted to be able to make some experiments before start with the real board. With the modules here, I started to work and filled the gaps with the polystyrene (btw, I cut the boards with a cutter and wasn't the best choice). The next (and the last) thing I have done was start with the planning; I've drawn every single deployment and strategy/scheme location so I can be aware while i'm creating the terrain. The objetive is make a table that can be played nice from every side so I don't get bored of it too soon Right now, it looks like this: 2.- Theme. (...)
  7. Has anyone made an interesting, downloadable spawning pool template?
  8. I have a game lined up for Sunday - my Lilith crew vs. Zoraida / Collodi but nether of us had a 36" board. Thursday night I cut two 18" by 36" 6mm ply sheets (so i can fit them in the car) and set about making something quick. I wanted to include about 25% forest, a swamp or two (25%), grassland, a river and a road. Forests are usually a problem, but I had some aquarium plants that i could cut up and they are nice and flexible. I put some tracks in the forest to aid LOS and movement and highlight the different sections. The river was cut out, textured and varnished and the road/track was sanded into the polystyrene to give it some profile. I have yet to make a bridge for it, but this will be removable anyway - ie. ford or bridge. Boardwalks, made from placemats, connect up the swamp islands. The big trees I have had for about 40 years from a trainset. Most of the buildings etc are stuff I had made for 40K years ago. Just about ready for Sunday - all I need to do now is finish painting my crew...
