As I mentined in my post showing various terrain tiles/components, I bought Black Scroll Games' castle tiles some time ago. While the tiles look outstanding, putting castle setups with corridors was a bit clumsy. BSG's video suggests using tape, but drawing and cutting tape isn't very handy thing to do in the middle of a game.
*Sorry for Finnish post – this is about selling/trading prepainted miniatures and some other stuff and I prefer to trade locally!*
Nonni. Aiemmin olen vaihdellut tavaraa Maxminisillä, Wizardsin foorumeilla ja Mahasamatmanilla, mutta näitä ei ole enää olemassa. Päätinpä siis laittaa listaa hakukoneiden ja satunnaisten kulkijoiden nähtäville.
Olen jo jonkin aikaa miettinyt, missä Suomesta voisi ostaa/myydä/vaihtaa muoviminiatyyrejä. Facebookin figukirppis on yksi paikka, mutta harvemmin siellä näkyy muoviminiatyyri -ihmisiä. Vastaava ilmoitus on kyllä sielläkin.
There's a nice amount of sales here and there and also I've been browsing and doing some purchases here and there - both physical maps (or actually tiles) and printable ones. I've found good ones and also seen little disappointments.
For some time, I've been looking at Future Armada's Invictus with a curious eye, but I haven't had actual need for it. A few days ago I run a session of Babylon 5 and went to check what DriveThruRpg has to offer. I had been looking at High Space's Euphoria as I was planning to use it's setting Lantern as a base for the game.
Edit: Ok, Reaper's deal was even better I remembered... as it rose up to have an enormous amount of participants. But I believe this is still a good deal, and road-opener for PPM kickstarter projects!
Are you a prepainted miniatures fan? Do you run a sea -themed fantasy/historical game?
My Beasts & Barbarians campaign starts soon, and I wanted to take a few inspirational photos while waiting for the game. These diorama-like photos have only few pieces of terrain, but represent situations that might well be epic moments in a Sword & Sorcery game.
While browsing through old photos, I found a few modelling/WIP photos of perhaps the most popular content of this site - miniature -scale Scratchbuilt Star Wars starships collection. I uploaded them here and at the same time, separated WIP pics and tutorials from the original Star Wars scratchbuilt starship models post to reduce the size and put them here to create one separate WIP/tutorial post. And sorry for rss spamming - I needed to change the title more relevant.
Here's a paper model of a chemical container train car I've used as a prop in my Savage Cyberworld -campaign. Print it on two A4/Letter sheets, on cardstock, 120g paper or something else strudier than standard paper. I haven't added instructions as the model is quite simple, and I didn't see it necessary to add the parts that attach train cars to each other (whatever they are called in English), model worked quite well without them.
I know social media applications have been used in gaming more or less, but before now, I haven't found one that really is to my liking. Well, I liked Google Wave a lot, but it had it's issues and is now being shut down. But the new rising star among social media sites is Pinterest, which is extremely useful for roleplayers, terrain builders and miniature collectors as well. And as I'm verfy visually oriented person, it's quite natural I enjoy this new toy. But as a gamer, I wanted to think of using this toy also in gaming.
