Ok, so finally I found the photos for this episode of Grim’s Dungeons of Doom; Realm of the dead. This article, we are going to make some Necropolis Obelisks or tomb marker type monuments, these will match the rest of the other dungeon set and work well as standalone pieces in their own right. As ever, you can catch up with other articles in  this series by clicking on the link in the menu, to see how the set is put together. I’ll be detailing two different designs here, but the idea is simple so it’s just to illustrate how you can make up your own designs with little real effort. Anyway, lets get going and build something… Continue reading

Hello everyone, it’s me Grim. In my absence, I at least have been amassing a fair bit of material here to continue on with both this series and the blog. I hope you’ll forgive my leave, but shit happens.

So, it’s been a while since posting the last dungeons of doom article. With that in mind, I present to you a series of new load of themed tutorials that deal with the realm of the dead. Over time we’ll be concentrating on a different theme at a time, focusing first with the graveyard/cemetery starting with this creepy skull encrusted cemetery gateway… Continue reading

As bloggers it’s great to share quality content with our readership, so it’s great when the opportunity comes along to take a step back from our own blogs and hand over to others for top notch advice and how to’s.
So with that in mind, here’s an excellent tutorial for terrain builders here, reblogged with permission from http://redoverblue.net.

 

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Tabletop Taverns Kickstarter

7 Mar

While my rather poor internet connection allows and I’m on a roll, I want to tell you about the third installment of the successful Tabletop towns range of folding card scenery. I’m a huge fan of paper models for wargaming, so this new campaign is bound to be a big hit for those out there who need the advantage of being able to store their scenery for use on the go, or have limited space to store vast amounts of scenery needed for large scale battlefields and such.

I’m really liking the evolution of these great practical card buildings and with the addition of sloped roofs, it adds an extra element of realism to the previous sets. Like I have mentioned before, there’s loads of scope for future additions and themes that can be done based around the idea, and tabletop towns creator, Julian Hicks has not failed to disappoint with the newest creations. The latest additions add more options and build upon the previous, giving way to more layouts for your gaming set up, all in all it’s a very practical way for gamers to populate their tables with many more combinations of 28mm fantasy townscapes without the restrictions of storage and a huge dent to your finances!

I’m still hoping that eventually there will be some chance in the future for some scifi and modern stuff, not only for 28mm gamers, but for those of us who game in 15mm (hint, hint!!)

Seriously, if you haven’t heard of them before, go and check out the latest campaign!

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Battle Systems™ Sci-fi Modular Terrain Kickstarter

30 Nov

So, with previous posts being concerned with that of clowns and other such tomfoolery, I thought that it was best if I brought things back to the usual wargaming themes that many come here for. Although I will add, this blog is not just about wargames and miniatures, but about other stuff that amuses and entertains me. It’s been a while since I featured any crowdfunding stuff I’ve seen or been told about, so I thought I’d highlight this nice looking set, Battle Systems (TM!) modular card terrain on KS.

With only a few days left to go, it comes as no surprise this lovely terrain set has prompted tons of you out there to part with your cash to help fund this project. As you can see, it’s ideal for a plethora of 28mm games (or 32mm if you prefer!) of a scifi nature. I’m a big fan of terrain, and you must admit its pretty neat for card scenery, perfect for those who don’t have the time to mess around making it from scratch! Imagine the games of Necromunda or Spacehulk you could play with this!!

If I had the cash to put in, I would, but since I’m perpetually skint, I’ll be giving it a miss (not by choice though!)

There’s still time to get involved and get yourself a set, go and take a look if you like the cut of it’s cloth (you know what I mean…)
