Dino(‘s) Crisis 2019

Two weeks ago, on November 9th and 10th to be exact, Crisis took place in Antwerp, hosted by the Tinsoldiers of Antwerp. Dennis had already visited Crisis many times and delivered a good coverage in Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3 of his article series. For me, on the other hand, it should be […]

Firestorm Games – November discount code change

In episode #279 of the podcast, the advert for Firestorm Games states that we have a new discount code to use on the webstore: “meepleflu”. I have received an email from a listener who has raised an objection to using this subject as a discount code, so I have taken the decision to remove it. Please continue to use the existing discount code until the end of November. A new discount code will be issued for December. Apologies for any inconvenience. Neil

The Military Truck kit is now available on DriveThruRPG. This kit lets you build a 28mm-32mm scale SciFi Military transport vehicle that comes with several options for the cabin, back tray, and chassis.

Grinning Skull Studios Patreon Launched!

Well, it’s been ages but I finally did it, launched the Grinning Skull Patreon page. This had been on the back boiler for a hell of a long time, but due to life commitments and other stuff, I had always put it off. Partly because I think I didn’t quite get what it all meant, […]

Terrain, Travel and Birthdays!

Among them is the Sigmarite Dais and the Azyrite Townscape, that will go great with the terrain from the Warcry starter kit. I started with the Sigmarite Dais, a round temple base, that I primed black and gave a […]

Painting tricks for optical effects

In the last article I talked about how my painterly aspirations first developed in such a way that I wanted to reach a pro level. However, this was rather the beginning of my journey as a hobbyist and my preference has shifted a lot in the meantime. One thought was pivotal at that point: How […]

Review: Titan Terrain Warehouse

I commented at the end of the Vendorum review that Titan Terrain’s Factorum also looked quite tempting. I splurged and bought their larger Warehouse building instead. This building is also part of a good bundle deal Titan Terrain offer. The above photo shows you my final, assembled Warehouse and it is a commanding piece of terrain which will make a great centrepiece to any industrial Sci-Fi or Cyberpunk 28mm table. It’s around 45cm long and 30cm at the widest point, and from above it’s roughly ‘L’ shaped. This photo shows the 10 sheets of laser cut MDF and corrugated cardboard that comes in the kit. It’s a fairly hefty package and I think it’s good value for the price of NZ$54.90 (excluding shipping, at time of review). Instructions are emailed separately as a PDF which shows how it all goes together. This is a reasonably large build and it took me around 4 hours to assemble. That does include giving the glue time to bond the MDF parts together. You’ll need s
