Trzy po trzy (15) | Three times three (15)

Posted on August 21st, 2017 under , , , . Posted by

Dzisiejszy wpis z cyklu Trzy po trzy będzie nieco odmienny – znalazłem, po prostu, sporo fajnych linków nie pasujących bezpośrednio do podziału Galeria/Poradniki/Zbiórki, wykorzystam je więc od razu, nie dając im ginąć w pomroce mojej niepamięci.

Ale zacznijmy standardowo, od czegoś do oglądania – Abyssal Warlord w malowaniu Davida Sopera (kurde, jestem fanem prac tego człowieka). Niesamowita faktura materiałów na tej figurce, świetna twarz. To, oczywiście, nie jest miniaturka przeznaczona do grania…

Czas na poradniki
Malowanie twarzy – w oryginale do figurek w skali 75 i 90mm, ale techniki i metody są generalnie te same w przypadku również mniejszych figurek.
Rdza i sól – poradników na temat wykorzystania soli do robienia zacieków z rdzy i ogólnie rdzy jest sporo, ten spodobał mi się ze względu na niezłe zdjęcia towarzyszące opisom.

Zbiórki społecznościowe
Darkholds: Ancient Barrows – osobiście nie jestem fanem Mierce Miniatures, ale odpowiada mi tematyka;)
Bruegelburg – Lead Adventure Miniatures i wspaniałe ludki “cywilne”. RPG, dioramy i ożywienie pola bitew. Zresztą część można wykorzystać z powodzeniem w armii Imperium, jako dowódców, inżynierów, muzyków, itd.
Plastic Terrain Kits autorstwa Small Scale Armies – coś dla fanów 6mm is sf.

I cała reszta
Simple as War – fajny blog, poświęcony Herezji Horusa i Mordheimowi, z wstawkami modelarskimi, malowaniami, itp.
Ciekawy wywiad przeprowadzony przez Tylera z Mengel Miniatures z Brandonem z GMM Studios, którego prace nie raz gościły w ramach tej serii na Wojnie w miniaturze – ostatnio tutaj.
Wargaming Tradecraft – kolejny blog, ciekawe poradniki, malowania, itd.
Circle of Blood – stara kampania z czasów 5. edycji WFB dostosowana do wydań następnych – edycji szóstej, siódmej i ósmej.
I – na koniec – Chivalry, gra znana fragmentarycznie z White Dwarfa z początku lat 90. była – w zamierzeniach GW – czymś znacznie, znacznie bardziej obszernym. Orlygg z Realm of Chaos 80s dokopał się do projektów przechowywanych przez Bryana Ansella. Ciekawe, co z tego będzie…

Jako bonusik – na samym dole graficzny poradnik malowania stali metodą NMM.

Today’s Three times three is a little different – as I managed to find some really interesting links not belonging directly to Galleries/Tutorials/Crowdfunding labels, I decided to use them all at once, before links will disappear in the black hole of my memory.

But let’s get started traditionally, with something to look at – Abyssal Warlord painted by David Soper (man, I’m really a fan of his paintings). Amazing miniature, full of excellently executed textures and colors. This is, of course, not a gaming miniature, still…

Tutorials
Face painting – tutorial shows how to paint 75 and 90mm scale faces but general principles are the same with 28mm scale figures, aren’t they?
Rust and salt – there is quite a lot of tutorials showing how to make rust using salt, but I like this one as it has nice photos.

Crowdfunding
Darkholds: Ancient Barrows – personally, I’m not a fan of Mierce Miniatures but I like the subject of this Kickstarter;)
Bruegelburg by Lead Adventure Miniatures and excellent ‘civilians’ for rpgs, dioramas and little vignettes on the tabletop. Besides, quite a few of these miniatures may be used in Empire army as lords, characters, engineers.
Plastic Terrain Kits by Small Scale Armies – something for fans of SF in 6mm scale.

And the other stuff
Simple as War – nice blog, dedicated to Horus Heresy and Mordheim mostly, with modelling and painting articles too.
Interesting interview with Brandon from GMM Studios by Tyler from Mengel Miniatures. Brandon is the guy behind many excellent, huge armies, which were featured in this series more then once, last time here.
Wargaming Tradecraft – another interesting blogs, with very nice and numerous tutorials and nicely painted miniatures.
Circle of Blood – old 5th edition WFB campaign reworked for 6th, 7th and 8th edition of Warhammer.
And – last thing – Chivalry. The game know from its fragments published in White Dwarf magazine from the early 90s. It was supposed to be something much, much bigger. Orlygg from Realm of Chaos 80s managed to get hold of its draft from Bryan Ansell. Read about it here.

As a bonus – step by step NMM steel tutorial below.

The Other Partizan 2017 – The Games in Pictures

Posted on August 21st, 2017 under . Posted by

Sunday 20th August 2017 saw The Other Partizan show at Newark Showground, and once again the Newark Irregulars organised and executed a very good wargames show. The George Stephenson Pavilion is fast becoming one of my favourite show venues, although it has a few temperature issues – I suppose this is  the price you pay for having lots of glass for natural lighting when the sun shines! The Partizan shows continue to attract some of the best looking games around, and this event was no exception – there were several of note, but three which (at least for me) stood above the rest. Before I reveal those, lets have a look at many of the games that were on display. Apologies if I get any game attributaions incorrect – please let me know in the comments and I will correct them. Forager – Stand To Games Chain Of Command World War I – Too Fat Lardies Battle of Crecy – The Bodkins To The Strongest – Leuctra 371 BC – Simon Miller 28mm Napoleonic Vilna 1812 – Forest Outlaws Neerfunken 1747 – Phil Olley 28mm World War II 6mm Colonial To The Strongest – Orwell Wargamers Battle of Utitsa 1812 – Like a […]

More RPGaDay, More Vacation Pics

Posted on August 20th, 2017 under , . Posted by

The vacation pics are actually over on my other blog:

What I Did for my Summer Vacation – the 2017 Edition – Part Two

I think there are over 100 pics in the post. Here’s a couple pictures so you have an idea…
The Girl going wicked fast. 
Me… adjusting my rear hub… AGAIN!
And here are the weekend’s RPGaDay questions 
Question #19 

WHICH RPG FEATURES THE BEST WRITING?

Again I’m not entirely clear on what is the “best writing”? Do they mean the most lyrical and literary with the most flavourful flavour text? Or do they meant the rules with the the most clear and concise technical rule writing?

I’m a painfully slow reader. So, I’ve never really read game rules just to read them for the sake of reading and enjoying the writing. I read as much as I can to understand the rules or the setting or the adventure I’m going to run and skip the rest. I’m more concerned with whether the rules are laid out in an order that makes sense and if I’ll be able to find the rules I need to refer to in the future!

That being said, the miniature game rules by Daniel Mersey – Lion Rampant, Dragon Rampant, etc – have been really fun to read. (Not actually RPGs…. buuuut… fun to read – and PLAY!) 


Question #20

WHAT IS THE BEST SOURCE FOR OUT-OF-PRINT RPGs?
I find that FLGS that don’t have an online catalogue are the best for finding old treasures – I’ve found a few gems squirrelled away on the bottom shelf in the back corner or in their bargain bins… 
Other than that… the Sentry Box? (at least back when Sean worked there and staff could actually LOCATE stuff that was in their catalogue) 
I’ve picked up the occasional item of eBay or ABE books…
I know of others who’ve gotten amazing deals at conventions…
I suppose a lot are available as PDFs at RPGNow or Drive-ThruRPG. Does it even count as “out of print” if it’s still available as a PDF? 
In Other News…
I really need to get cracking on some Jet Bikes! 
Amanda’s off to Seattle, but not before leaving me with this cold she came down with on the last day of our vacation! Boooo!

Ok so after painting Curtis’ sculpts for BOYL, I had to finish one last model to complete the set of Oldhammer events exclusive models. This one was sculpted for BOYL16 by Geoff Sims from Oakbound.
You might either have recognised him or just understood who he was from the title of this post but in case you have no clue, here is Morcar of Heroquest fame.
