10 Jul

500posts

So, post 500. Since it’s inception back in 2012 it’s been quite a journey, and it’s changed quite a bit. Much has transpired, lives have changed and much material & ideas have been scribbled and typed, yes, it’s been an “interesting” time.

All I want to say is to all you who have come through this site, for whatever reason, Thank you all.

Thank you for supporting the site and reading my stuff. I promise that I’ll try and keep adding to the content here and try and make this site more useful and relevant to you all.

Lets raise a glass (or cuppa in my case) to the future and another 500 posts and 4 more years…

Cheers guys!!

Grinning Skull needs YOU!! Help Keep the Resources section great!!

THE GRINNING SKULL NEEDS YOU!!

Just a quick post to ask of you, my dear readers. I know a lot of you use the Resources page here on the Grinning Skull, it’s a popular location for great free resources for wargaming, RPGs and material on the internet, all indexed neatly in one place to be used time and time again.

That’s all well and good, but I’d like us as a community to band together and make this great page even greater!

So, if you know of, or have a a free resource for something that you think should be included in the lists, please let me know via the contact me part of this site. I try to add new and fresh links as much as I can, but with the amount of info spaced out across the internet, it’s a long and drawn out process that I just can’t give enough time dedicated to it.

If you find anything that’d be useful to the community, let me know and I can pop it on the list!

Broadcast over!!

 

The Future, Dear reader, the future….!

wtf

So, as I sit here and ponder, just where the fuck have my tutorial pictures gone for my next Grim’s Dungeons of Doom article, lost in my 10,000 file folders it seems, it got me drifting off, thinking about what to do for future posts.

Sure, I’ll be doing more dungeons posts, as well as more crowdfunding spotlights, and more news of future releases from me, but just what do you, my readers want to see featured here?

So, rather than post up a poll, I wanted to engage you lot, to see what you think? More dedicated industry interviews (I had planned it, but do you want them?) Terrain tutorials? Reviews? 15 or 28mm?

I’ve finally managed to get hold of Frostgrave, so would you want to see something relating to that, be it 15mm terrain for the game, or a focus on the 28mm? More craft/making stuff, whatever it be?

So many things, so many decisions.

So I throw it over to you. Let me know in the comments section, or contact me directly if you have suggestions, ideas or what ever you’d like.

You know, this site isn’t just here to keep promoting my variety of tat, it is to entertain and enlighten (well, maybe thats going too far!) and of course, I do it for you all, my lovely readers!!

Let me know!

As you know, I’m all for money saving when it comes to gaming, and I also love toy hacks, so I wanted to share this post from over on http://cloudcraftsite.wordpress.com, check out some of his other awesome posts by visiting his blog.

Anyway, this top 5 has some cool stuff that can be easily converted for your games and models, plus links to places you can get them!!

If you like cheap toy hacks, also check out The giant scorpion toy hack and The bag “o” Skeletons review from the archive!!

The following are just some Cheap Toys I’ve found while browsing the net that I think would have excellent potential for Table Top Gaming, whether it’s just giving them a quick paint job, or Kit-Bashing them to the point where the original model is unrecognizable (or you get the “WHAT THE HELL IS THAT!?” reaction from your friends).

Item Number One: True Legends Mythical Warriors

This bucket of fantasy figures was reviewed by Fungeon Master Dave O’Gara (will post link in a moment) and I can see a few figures that have potential as either Ogres for Dungeons and Dragons / Pathfinder, or as Kit-bashed Demon Princes of Nurgle or Khorne for Warhammer/Warhammer 40k. The Sorceress looking figures would probably make for good kit-bash material for a Demon Prince of Tzneetch or Slaanesh. The terrain that comes with this set is also fairly decent, and I would not hesitate to…
