It’s a, a violent playground

Monday, January 2nd, 2017

Won’t you come and join us in our playground?
It’s a, a violent playground
Such a, a violent playground

Wanted some more semi-creepy/postapoc terraint so made a playground out of stuff from  Sarissa precision, 4ground and ice cream sticks.

It’s all mounted on a base with the same kind of Zuzzy mat that the rest of my board has, so hopefully it blends in while still having some coherency.

Snowy with a chance of dice rolling

Wednesday, May 11th, 2016

As if an entire (4 models, but still…) X-men gang in less than a months time wasn’t enough, I’ve also been making a bunch of terrain! I’ve assembled and painted two buildings, dumpsters, garbage truck and scaffolding from TTcombat and a bunch of scatter terrain from Mantic (Mars attacks, Battlezone etc).

Not much else to say. Made the garbage bags out of…actual garbage bag, everything is pretty much drenched in home-made wash which smells of death and rot (no, really!), and everything’s covered in snow, to fit with the rest of my terrain/board. The terrain is mostly aimed at Batman Miniature Game or Marvel Universe Miniature Game, since it’s “Modern” in style. After years of ruined wizard towers and ruined grimdark space bases, the modern/city terrain has really left me wanting for more, it’s such a joy to create and paint.

Once I’m happy with an entire 3’x3′ game board of modern terrain I am genuinely planning to get some interior such as chairs and beds for the different buildings, but I don’t want to focus on that before I have all the other stuff settled.

So without further ado; a bunch of pictures.

BMG tryout – Some men just want to see their dice cube burn…

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

After something close to two years of having two painted crews for Batman the Miniature Game, I finally got around to testing it. With some non-Batman-friendly results…

Normally, this means bad luck for bad guys.

Holy sardine! Batman demo crews done

Friday, December 27th, 2013

Commissioner Gordon: It could be any one of them… But which one? Which ones?
Batman: Pretty *fishy* what happened to me on that ladder…
Commissioner Gordon: You mean where there’s a fish there could be a Penguin?
Robin: But wait! It happened at sea… Sea. C for Catwoman!
Batman: Yet, an exploding shark *was* pulling my leg…
Commissioner Gordon: The Joker!
Chief O’Hara: All adds up to a sinister riddle… Riddle-R. Riddler!
Commissioner Gordon: A thought strikes me… So dreadful I scarcely dare give it utterance…
Batman: The four of them… Their forces combined…
Robin: Holy nightmare!

Yes. Because that’s proper deduction skills.

Painting yellow – Holy heart failure, Batman!
This is sort or awkward, but this is the second post in a row about a finished project! One might almost suspect that I’m getting stuff done and not getting distracted by the latest shinies. Almost.

Robin is all done, and with that, two 200 Reputation points demo crews to try out the Batman miniature game! Bright yellows, greens and reds are sort of a hassle, but in the end I think he turned out alright. I’ve only painted him by the tv, so environment hasn’t been optimal, but hey. Continued my experiment with glazes and such with the yellow. Hard stuff, but still the best yellow I’ve painted so far.

Anyways, Batman and Robin makes for a 200 Reputation demo crew, so now I can finally try the game out!.. I hope it doesn’t suck.

Penguin demo crew complete

Sunday, December 8th, 2013

After a lot of city-camo-angst, I’m done with the Penguin thugs for Batman Miniature Game. Seriously, painting camo is horrible.

I am hoping to try this game out on thursday. Been holding off until everything’s painted, because I know stuff has a tendency to not get painted if I start playing with them unpainted.

Only model left now is Robin, which I hope will get done this coming week!

That’s it for now, time to head to bed and wait for sick son to keep me awake all night.

The gaming board – Or what I’ve been up to the last 6 months

Wednesday, September 25th, 2013

IMG_2759-800

The epitome product of half a years hobby time has finally come to a close, and I’m personally very happy with the results. To nag some more about the tournament, I promised the club that I could bring at least two full tables to the convention (a lot of the clubs terrain is needed elsewhere during the weekend). I had a Terraclips table from before, which left me with one table done and one table short. I had already planned to make myself a gaming table for home use, but this sort of forced me to get on with it a bit faster than initially planned (initially there wasn’t really a time frame whatsoever..).

So, as I just recently posted about, I painted up a 3×3′ Zuzzy scourged forest gaming mat. I continued with the winter/tundra theme as I had initially planned. I chose to keep the snow only as partial spots and generic frost, since I figured an entirely white landscape would be a bit boring to look at. So the general theme of the board was something like “Gotham City in Russia” – Bleak, gray, gothic, worn. At first I just built graveyard stuff but quickly decided that I wanted something more than a board filled with tombstones.  Something like an old worn-out village with an old graveyard in its outskirts.

IMG_2741-800

With the aid of my father (yes, I’m close to 30 and still use my fathers help in my hobby projects…) we built a foldable gaming board onto which the gaming mat could be glued. The board was glazed to give it a bit more ancient/gentlemanny look and a handle was added. Below is the board in all its folded glory. The main reason for it being foldable is so that I could stuff it away and play games at home, and help out in transporting it if I ever go somewhere to play. Like a tournament I’m hosting. Cough.

IMG_2743-800

In order to help out transporting it, a handle was made which is secured by wingnuts. This leaves minimal bits of annoyance left on the board when in actual use.

IMG_2744-800

So I glued the mat down with PVA glue. I glued about 50% of the board, leaving the middle 50% unglued, so that once I close the board, it doesn’t rip the mat apart. In other words, the middle section of the mat just rests on the board, but so far I’ve not seen any bubbles or somesuch distractions. The board has a frame so that the Zuzzy mat doesn’t press against itself when the board is folded and stored away.

And below is the fruit of my labor! 6 months ago I didn’t have a board, a mat, or any terrain, and now there’s almost too much of it…

This is just a sample board I set up and snapped some photos of yesterday to see how it’d look, and so far I’m really satisfied. In short, I went along with the “old (ruined) village outskirts close to the haunted cemetary.”

For kicks, I also tried out my “city board” variant. At the moment it’s mainly roads and three houses,  but most of the terrain is interchangeable, so I’m not too worried that I need more “modern type” terrain at the moment. The roads are made from a roll of “tar paper” (whatever the actual name of the stuff is). Works well enough and was very quick to produce!

Stalking dem rooftops!

I’m not sure where to start, there’s just too many Batman cliches to throw a batarang at. So I’ll just do a photodump as normal. This is Batman (duh) from the Batman miniature game. The models are really top notch and very detailed. A joy to work with, basically! Now all I have to do is to get someone to try it out with me…
