Crowdfunding Watch – 3D-printing – Dropship and Scatter Blocks


Antenicitis Workshop is well known for their gorgeous scenery and vehicles for generic SF, Infinity, near future and modern. Here they have a kickstarter for a new Infinity Dropship, the Efreet, either as resin model or as stl-files.
What is there to say… it’s a fantastic model… and you can have a fleet of them!
Head over to The 'Efreet' - A Sci-fi Dropship for a closer look.
This KS ends on March 4, 2018.

Next is ScatterBlocks, for those times you don’t want to build a complex dungeon/wooden house/SF-building/etc with your OpenLOCK toys.
Here you’ll get different generic parts to stack and build the terrain you need quickly. Each stretch-goal brings a new skin to the base-pieces.
There is also an option for a very physical game using these pieces and sturdy miniatures. I think that will go very well with a pint of beer or two J

Zombicide: Black Plague – Thundergut and Merieil


The final two minis from the Special Guest Box: Naïade. The other two, Ostokar and Milo, were finished in June, and since then I have only painted two necromancers. It's about time we got more heroes to game with.
A drunk, one-legged dwarf and kick-ass elf – they will bash zombies soon at the club.

Now for something completely different:
About a month ago I found a real pearl of a blog, Vagabond’s Wargaming Blog, and it has become one of my favourites, as it is full of very good AARs. Really very good! Well written with beautiful terrain and minis, what’s not to like? I’ve been very inspired by it.
It’s just a couple of months old and has far too few followers, so I think you should pop over, have a look, and if you like what you see, then follow.
Thank you for a great blog, John!

Mercs: Drones and Weapon Platforms

An assortment of drones and weapon platforms from Mercs: Recon.
This drone is rather cool. I see quite a ffew uses for it.
My primary intention is to use these, or at least those without weapons, as scatter terrain in SF-games, 7TV and Pulp Alley.
I really like the red tri-ped.
I guess they will all come in handy one way or the other.
Meh... but they might be useful in a game of 7TV. Villains always need shooty things...

Crowdfunding Watch – 3D-printing – Modular Ships


This week bring something a bit different, namely modular ships.
The idea here is to let you build the ship you want using really flexible, OpenLOCK-compatible, components.
You can game inside the ships, our outside, and the stretch-goals include detailing, furnishing and more.
If you need more than one ship-type there’s a pledge that includes all unlocked ships, at the moment a trireme and junks.
If you’re into huge monsters, there is even that.
This is certainly a different take on modular terrain and if you plan to have a campaign on the high seas then this is certainly something worth a look.
I'm rather excited by this, as it looks great. Now, I just need that new printer...

An old lady from Blue Moon (and a bonus assassin)


I still got quite a few unpainted minis in the Slice of Americana box from Blue Moon.
This one is just finished and it’s fantastic little mini, so full of character.
She’ll be great as a bystander in a game of Pulp Alley.
I need some assassin-types for Pulp Alley, already have a couple painted but need more. This GCC Agent from Mercs: Recon had to do. An extremely fast paintjob to have a figure if needed. Nothing much to brag about, but he will be able to do his nefarious deeds.

Blood Rage: Fenrir and two Reaper Bones wolves


Blood Rage is the next game I will paint figures for, and it’s really fun as the minis are just fantastic, the game’s got a great theme (who doesn’t like Ragnarök?) and it is without a doubt one of the best board-games I got.
I’ve already painted quite a few minis, but now I’m concentrating on finish everything for that game.
First of the new batch is Fenrir, one of the mythological monsters that you can recruit to your clan.
A huge miniature that turned out real well.
I painted two other wolves, both from the Reaper Bones range, while I was in wolf-mode. One is large, a worg or dire-wolf, while the other is two-headed.
The sculpts are okay, but really nothing more, and the two-headed one needed green-stuffing as there was a rather prominent gap where one of the heads were pre-glued to the rest of the body.
These two will join my expanding pack of wolf-kin.

Crowdfunding Watch – 3D-printing – Sci-fi tiles and a Napoleonic game

Two new kickstarters this week, and both from companies I have backed earlier.

Last time we got very affordable fantasy tiles, but this time the kickstarter goes out into space, with sci-fi tiles, walls and accessories.
Pledges range from £4 for a bunch of tiles, to £26 for the full set, with an £32 option for everything + a map-layouts-set.
This looks like an affordable way to get going with sci-fi gaming-terrain. Well worth a look!
This KS ends on March 3, 2018.

Jens from 3D-Print-Terrain is back, and this time with something completely different from what we are used to.
If you play Commands & Colors then this might just be for you, especially if you like your Napoleonics. If you don’t play that game then there is a free rules-set to use with these printable figures and terrain, your when you pledge all in (at €40)
Anyway, the kickstarter will get you the printable terrain tiles and units you need for a game.
Definitely worth a look!
