Cemeteries in tabletop games – thoughts, inspiration, links

Cemetery, Graveyard, Necropolis, City of the Dead. Pretty much every fantasy city, town and village has such, and they have a great promise of adventure: Necromancers looking for bodies, haunts with unfinished business, buried treasures and even a whole unholy domain, especially at night time – as Necropolis and it's Dark Reliquary in Ptolus.

Planet profile: Seccanoe

For those of you playing Spacemaster or HARP-SF, I thought this outline of a new planet might give you some inspiration or serve as a backdrop for your next adventure.   Name: Seccanoe Diameter: 14,037km Gravity: 1.2 g Distance from sun: 0.87 au at its closest 1.42 at its furthest Year: 1.13 Earth years (412 Earth days) Rotation period: 21.25 hours Atmosphere: Oxygen rich with carbon and nitrogen Hydrosphere: In ‘winter’ glaciers cover 42% of the surface of the planet with other bodies of water covering a further 5%.

Inspiration: Princess Kayanoke the Wildheart

We were talking about Circle Warlock names, when it came up how cool it would be to have a Princess Mononoke Kaya. A little google later and it brings me this.Apparently AduroT has already done this with Kaya the Moonhunter. However, the model I want to see with this more would be this one:Mostly because I don't already have a Kaya3 painted up. I'll have to check around to see who would do this for me.(I'm just kidding, Aaron. You know it's all going to be you, boo.)

Savannah Terrain

This is diorama-level scenery building, but almost everything he does in this video is applicable to wargamer-proof terrain too and the final result looks awesome. Paepercuts is a great channel; he was quiet for a while but has been putting out new stuff regularly now and is well worth the subscription over on YouTube. One of the comments in the Savannah video describes the host of these as “the Bob Ross of scenery videos” and I realized that’s one of the things I like about him, there’s none of the “HEYYYYYYY GUYSSSSSSSSSSS” weird loudness that is apparently standard issue in far too many other YT videos. As for me and my house, I’m still not doing much gaming-related stuff but I can feel the new-project itch starting up. This might be something completely different, away from the various 28mm projects I’ve spent time on the last five years or so. Possibly Russian Civil War at a grand tactical small scale, 6mm or even 2mm/3mm for that “miles of open step

Inspiration: Possible Infernal Color Scheme

 In the Warmachine/Hordes painting group, facebook user Donniw Smith posted the above Archangel wip.

Inspiration: Tomasz Mucha's painted Storm Raptor

Tomasz Mucha of Poland shared pictures of his lovely painted Storm Raptor to the various communities. For those of you who aren't familiar with the model, it's big. The base is a 120mm circle, and players often struggle with figuring out safe ways to transport their Storm Raptors in foam. The lightning colors on the feathering is fantastic, and it achieves a look I've failed the times I've tried it which is partly why I had to ask Tomasz for permission to post these pictures here.

Inspiration: Dreamer of Menothginger conversion

Darrell Galbraith Jr. posted the above conversion of the Harbinger of Menoth, and I think it hits all the right notes to make the model immediately indistinguishable with zero confusion. He even added a blindfold!The base looks like it's from scibor miniatures. Lost ruins or something, Lord of the Rings inspired.
