Infinity Space Station Terrain First Outing

Posted on February 7th, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

Got my in-progress space station setup for Infinity games out on the table today, as one of two tables set up for a very small (four players!) local Infinity tournament. It was well received and the other folks had some good ideas for finishing it – breaking up the line of sight down the access … Continue reading Infinity Space Station Terrain First Outing

Infinity Space Station Hangar Walls

Posted on February 2nd, 2016 under , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve posted a test print of some printed space station walls previously but after finding a nice batch of Sintra (1/8th foamed PVC plastic board) in the offcuts bin at my useful local plastic supplier I decided to start that project with some larger, more space-consuming pieces and started building a set of six big … Continue reading Infinity Space Station Hangar Walls

Review: Impudent Mortal Near Future Elevators

Posted on January 31st, 2016 under , , , . Posted by

I picked up a pack of Impudent Mortal’s Near Future Elevator Set, as mentioned in a previous post, and thought I’d put a few pictures up and do a bit of a review. First, I have to say that Walt, the man behind Impudent Mortal, is awesome to deal with. He’s incredibly quick to reply … Continue reading Review: Impudent Mortal Near Future Elevators

The Workbench This Week, 23 Jan 2016

Posted on January 23rd, 2016 under , . Posted by

My Impudent Mortal order arrived last week, and I’ve assembled the new paint rack already. It’s an exact duplicate of the one I bought back in 2014 and should help keep the rest of my workbench relatively uncluttered, at least of paint, figures, and small projects that can go up onto the shelves of the … Continue reading The Workbench This Week, 23 Jan 2016

The Workbench This Week, 9 Jan 2016

Posted on January 10th, 2016 under . Posted by

First post of the New Year! Happy New Year, hope 2015 was good and 2016 is at least as good. I spent the week between Christmas and New Year moving, and a fair bit of the time since getting stuff sorted out and properly moving into the new apartment my girlfriend and I are sharing … Continue reading The Workbench This Week, 9 Jan 2016

A Christmas Tree?

Posted on December 21st, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

I’m going to be moving between Christmas & New Years so I’ve been busy packing stuff and cleaning; I’ve been in my current digs about three and a half years and the gaming stuff especially has kind of crept all over the place, so it’s a good opportunity for some sorting, de-junking, and reorganization of … Continue reading A Christmas Tree?

Space Station Walls for Infinity

Posted on December 20th, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

I’ve been kicking around ideas for an interior table setup for Infinity for several months now – that is, a table that instead of being buildings and regular terrain, is entirely or mostly the interior of some large structure. A big starship or space station setup was an obvious choice, especially as the faction I … Continue reading Space Station Walls for Infinity

Blood Bowl Sideline Ads, Sheet The First

Posted on December 15th, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Finally got a sheet done with most of my Blood Bowl sideline ads to date, arranged in strips and sized for 1″x3″, which is a good height for sideboards or hoardings. There’s a mix of Blood Bowl-inspired ads, almost all parodies of real products. There’s Haterade, Croak, Plopsi, Goblin Sweat, and DorfAde (in new Stunty … Continue reading Blood Bowl Sideline Ads, Sheet The First

Goblin Dugout Started

Posted on December 10th, 2015 under , , , . Posted by

Simple dugout for the goblin-themed Blood Bowl pitch-side set I’m doing; there will be another dugout similar to this for the other team, and the turn- and reroll-trackers will be done up to look like spectator terraces/stands. The basic structure is coffee stir sticks over a plastic sheet base; the hoarding along the back will … Continue reading Goblin Dugout Started

A Goblin Scoreboard, Part Two

Posted on November 19th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

The base of the new Blood Bowl scoreboard is now covered in sand, painted, and flocked. I might still add some additional foliage or other details to the base, but it’s perfectly usable as is and I’m willing to declare it finished and move on! Instead of puttying around the strip of plexi in the … Continue reading A Goblin Scoreboard, Part Two

A Goblin Scoreboard, Part One

Posted on November 18th, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Decided that my Blood Bowl Goblin team, currently glorying in the name of T.U.R.D. (what that stands for changes every single game they play…) needed a scoreboard, to use as substitute to my existing Lizardman temple BB setup. Goblins have an reputation for being clever but not smart, and for lunatic behaviour at the best … Continue reading A Goblin Scoreboard, Part One

Dice Problems

Posted on November 7th, 2015 under , , . Posted by

I’m off in Vancouver this weekend, so have a brief link to an older Penny Arcade comic about one possible solution for that age-old gamer problem, “My dice hate me!”. Via Penny Arcade.

The Workbench This Week, 4 November 2015

Posted on November 4th, 2015 under , , , , , . Posted by

Quick and dirty late night snapshot of my workbench! Front and centre is a Reaper Bones troll (in white plastic still, hence kind of blown out in the pic…) next to his orange-painted buddy. I’ve cut both arms at the elbows, repositioned them, and gotten started on puttying to cover up the damage. He’s for … Continue reading The Workbench This Week, 4 November 2015

Giant Billboard Tower for Infinity

Posted on October 26th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

I’ve previously shown off big (5″ tall by 3″ wide) advertising graphics intended for use on an Infinity table – Weyland-Yutani, a travel poster, and Blue Sun; on Friday evening I decided to sit down and crank out the structure all three of those graphics will be shown off on. The basic structure is actually … Continue reading Giant Billboard Tower for Infinity

Infinity in the Jungle

Posted on October 25th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

Somewhere along the way the default tabletop setting for a game of Infinity became “futuristic urban/quasi-urban environment”, which is as true of most of our tables locally as it is anywhere else, but the game does have a full and interesting set of terrain rules and even tries to include things like zero-g, hazardous environments, … Continue reading Infinity in the Jungle
