Breaking War: Wargame Magazine Breaking War Introduction by Editor Quino Ruiz

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

Here’s a nice introduction to the Spanish wargame magazine Breaking War by the editor Quino Ruiz: BreakingWar is a three-monthly periodical wargame publication with a focus for historical wargames. At the moment this magazine is only published in Spanish. Although the magazine focuses on the Spanish wargame scene and companies it’s also interesting for non-Spanish wargamers as it reveals lots of interesting ideas, reviews, companies and tutorials.
BreakingWAR es una publicación periódica (actualmente se publica cada tres meses), centrada en los wargames de ambientación histórica. Por ahora se publica únicamente en español, y está centrada en los intereses del público de España, aunque en gran medida se corresponden con los intereses de cualquier aficionado a los wargames.

The magazine has several fixed sections including but not limited to News, Future Events and Tournaments, Event Chronicles, Painting corner with different levels,… Also each issue has a historical event as a central topic. There are reviews of rulesets and expansions, recommendations about miniatures and scenery to representate that historical event in all the possible scales but also supplementary material for the player and other relevant information about the era.
La revista tiene secciones fijas, que van desde las noticias del sector, la programación de torneos y eventos, las crónicas de los eventos sucedidos en el periodo anterior, crítica de cine bélico, entrevistas a personajes relevantes o clubes de jugadores, humor gráfico, secciones de pintura en diferentes niveles (en Taller de Pintura se pinta a un nivel medio, mientras que en la sección Flis-Flas: Pintura Express se pinta de forma rápida y sencilla), secciones de escenografía en diferentes niveles también (Cola y Arena es nuestra sección de escenografía al uso, y Dedos Pegajosos es nuestra sección de escenografía “para dummies”).

Of course, each number includes useful battle plans. There’s also content about several games, from small skirmishes to big battles and even full-scale campaign games including: World War Two, Napoleonic, Modern Warfare, Antiquity, etc. And more important: we cover well-known but also less known wargames, to allow you to discover new games!
Además, cada número se centra en un hecho histórico, y hay análisis de reglamentos y suplementos, recomendaciones sobre miniaturas para representar ese periodo en todas las escalas de juego, escenarios de juego, material complementario para el jugador y mucha información sobre el periodo histórico en el que sucedió ese hecho. 

Finally we also offer our subscribers lots of nice gifts including from exclusive rulesets, commercial and exclusive miniatures, interesting scenery elements and a lot of more. We are also looking to publish Breaking War in English with the better articles and translated content from our Spanish magazine!

Y por supuesto, lo que más valoran nuestros lectores, en todos los números hay Planes de Batalla, que son escenarios de juego, desde pequeñas escaramuzas a grandes batallas e incluso campañas de juego, para todas las épocas: Segunda Guerra Mundial, Napoleónicos, Guerra Actual, Antigüedad, etc. Y lo más importante, utilizando tanto los juegos más conocidos, como aquellos que nos parecen interesantes aunque no sean mayoritarios, lo que permite al jugador conocer otros productos, y tal vez descubrir nuevas pasiones.

Para finalizar, complementamos nuestra oferta ofreciendo a los suscriptores muchos regalos: desde reglamentos de juegos exclusivos nuestros, hasta miniaturas comerciales y exclusivas, elementos de escenografía, complementos o ayudas para juegos, y mucho más. 

Esperamos muy pronto poder ofrecer a todos los wargamers, en inglés, el resumen de los mejores artículos y contenidos de nuestra revista, a través de especiales que publicaremos bajo la marca PaintingWAR Battles, aunque por ahora, sea sólo un proyecto.

Sally 4th: New Photo-Realistic Building Range Released

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

Sally 4th: This is the first building in Sally 4th exciting new range of photo-realistic building kits, designed to bring a new level or detail, realism and playability to your miniatures gaming. Two 28mm scale houses complete with outbuildings and yard for £15.00. Finished size 200mm x 300mm x 210mm high.
The kit consists of a simple but robust shell with walls constructed from 3mm Medite and floors and roof from 2mm MDF. This is very quick and easy to assemble and features a removable roof. We have come to recognise that different gamers have different needs as far as model buildings and terrain go. Some want a very basic, cheap and cheerful building with minimum effort while some want a completely accurate and detailed model similar to those seen on the best model railways. We have tried to accommodate this by developing a customisable kit. You can use the building as built, add your own cardboard stone and plaster texture or just paint the building and use it straight away.
Or, you can download one of the photo-realistic cover layers we have designed for this building, for free, print out on your home printer, glue to the shell with PVA glue, apply a quick coat of varnish and you have a very detailed and realistic looking building to grace your table in far less time than it would take to paint a building to the same level of detail.

Photo-realistic covers are available for this building in three finishes; Stone, Brick & Plaster Render. If you do not want to print these yourselves, these are available pre-printed on to self-adhesive matt photo paper.
The covers include a sheet of doors and windows for the kit, but as some gamers want a more detailed finish we have developed 4 accessory kits that contain the 14 windows and six doors to complete this kit. This allows you to customise the building to the level of detail that you want for your games. Three of the accessory sets are simple glue on windows, the fourth is the most detailed set that features separate sill, glazing and glazing bars and is made from MDF, Perspex and Mounting Board. If there is sufficient demand we will add an interior set with rooms, stairs and internal doors and a front garden add-on.

Printable Scenery: Worlds First 3d Printable Model Maori Pa Available

Posted on March 12th, 2015 under , , , , . Posted by

Printable Scenery: A Maori pa was a fortified settlement with palisades and defensive terraces. In the pre-European period, these were often built on prominent raised ground, especially volcanic hills. The natural slope of the hill was then terraced.
Roly Hermans a New Zealand Veteran war-gamer, For years wanted to have a pa on his wargames table for colonial New Zealand Wars games, but constructing the fencing from pieces of wood was too fiddly and time-consuming, and the results too fragile. Then he came across Printable Scenery …“I discussed with Printable Scenery’s Matt Barker how a model pa needed to work for wargaming. The company was great – I just sent them some drawings and photos and they started showing me 3D prototypes almost the next day.”

By producing the fences and buildings in a modular format, this scenery will be infinitely adaptable to put together any type of fortified structure required for wargaming a typical colonial New Zealand Wars battle or siege. With over 30 pieces of fences and buildings now available, they can also be modified to form any other type of tribal village, not just Maori. You could even consider such forts for fantasy or pulp fiction games. And by reversing the fences so the posts go on the inside, they can become a generic northern European stockade.
Matt Barker and the team at Printable scenery have perfected the 3d model creation process. The components were designed with pen and paper, and then drafted in 3DMax, where the overhangs and support tolerances for printing were tested. The mesh was exported to Z-Brush for detailing, then ‘decimated’ to provide a workable high-res file in a technique perfected at Printable Scenery. Each piece prints in just over an hour on a Makerbot. We make all our own supports so we don’t have to rely on the customers software to work out correct support placement.
The variety of walls provides an unlimited range of options that can also be scaled, as can the meeting house and huts. Even the statues and entrance-way can be configured in a variety of ways.

Once several batches of fences and buildings were printed out, we were keen to see how they would look assembled together to depict a typical Maori hill pa. In our trial layout, three layers of palisading encircle a small hill that has been shaped into defensive terraces. In the centre is the meeting house and huts. The outside circle has an ornate carved gateway. All around is the rugged New Zealand bush. Our pa is populated by 28mm figures made by Empress Miniatures, which cover the New Zealand Wars of the 1840s. There’s even a British attack going in on one side.
The palisades and buildings of the model pa were painted using the ‘dry brushing’ technique. This entails dipping a flat brush into acrylic paint, wiping off most of the paint on a tissue, then sweeping the almost dry brush back and forth across the model to pick up all the raised areas.
