Retribution of Scyrah Forces

More long-painted models I put this here. I purchased these models and they were already converted at the time. When I bought them, I planned on using them for Starfinder or something like that. However, since I have yet to find something to play Sci-Fi games I like (I really need to dig into Esper Genesis), they merely gather dust under the TV... I like these models and the "stormtrooper" pattern I did them in, which is the standard color scheme Privateer Press gives them.

National Capital Model Soldier Society Annual, Springfield, VA

The National Capital Model Soldier Society puts on a show once a year. I have posted on their shows on here about 8 years ago, and they are still at it. This was the 58th year’s show, located at the Springfield Hilton last weekend.Now, about “Model Soldiers”. I’m sure you’ve seen pictures of miniatures on here before. Painted by me, painted by others. Everything I use, paint, create,or buy is painted to a wargame standard. There is a huge difference between the kind of painting my friends and I do to make games happen with miniatures and the kind of miniatures displayed at the Miniature Soldier shows. I paint well enough to pass from a distance of 3 feet up. A hobbyist who paints soldiers good enough to enter into juried competition is creating lifelike works of art. It can be kind of humbling visiting one of these shows, but I still like to go. Just because the best I can manage is apprentice level doesn’t mean I don’t relish looking at the works of the ma

Alternate Stars – 28mm Science Fiction Miniatures

You can't have a science fiction range of this nature without at least one heavily augmented robot or cyborg type and this one fits the bill. Rather than shiny chrome and helpful demeanour, this individual looks more than a little menacing. [...] The post Alternate Stars – 28mm Science Fiction Miniatures appeared first on Tabletop Games UK.

Dungeons and Dragons – Into the Unknown

A Painted Party Once upon a time we played a Dungeons and Dragons campaign we called ‘Into The Unknown‘ for about 2 years or so, it had some highlights, and one of them is coming almost 3 years later. I managed to finish a project. This campaign may have finished a few years back but it certainly left a few lasting impressions. In a bit of a misunderstanding, we may or may not have burned down an entire guild hall, but that’s just hearsay after all these years. Were there any survivors? Even though this campaign took place digitally, it held enough of my interest over the years to take the time to finish it. Generally I paint armies of dudesmen, and painting this group of characters was a lot of fun. Finishing this project has pushed me to start working on our party that’s currently running through the Tomb of Annihilation campaign. I’m even starting this project before we’ve finished the campaign, a notable improvement over my previously slow perform

Second Playtest of Star Schlock!

Star Schlock is designed to simulate the low budget, forgotten sci fi films and tv shows produced between 1968 and 1988 on the tabletop. I’ve got a soft spot for such gems as Starcrash, Battle Beyond the Stars, and Robot Jox, but Star Schlock should work for getting high brow fare like Battlestar Galactica, Planet of the Apes, Dune and Star Trek on the table as well. – John Sears, designer, on his blog “The 1000 foot General” John Sears ran the monthly Scrum Palace game this month. It was a replay of the playtest of his Science Fiction Skirmish game, STAR SCHLOCK. He had made some changes since the last game a couple months ago. Instead of playing the hapless planetary militia, I was on the side of the evil empire this time. I had two squads of expendables, pictured above, Captain Vrock, also above, and Murderbot, not pictured. Same cast of characters as last time.. the Baron, the Baroness, the Militia, the Doc, the Space Cadet.. etc. There were some new compon

Ancient Ship Gallery and Construction Guidelines

Two years ago now, I made a series of ships designed to be used in RPGs particularly Akhamet. These ships served me for years now. I now have more ship designs I want to build, which I will with the experience I gained from building these three guys. Here is a short guide on how to create such ships for you: 1 - The bodies were made of corrugated cardboard with the corrugations at 90' angle. This makes them light but sturdy. Make sure to keep the amount of glue to a minimum to avoid warping. 2 - Once the body is done and dry, cover the top and sides with Popsicle sticks. This will strengthen the body. Now here you can be as loose or tight with the planking as you want. Again easy on the glue to avoid warping, not only for the body but also for the sticks themselves. A little stick warping will make it look more "realistic". 3 - For the mast, use a chopstick you will stick into the center of the ship. Stick it through wood - having drilled a hole then force it through the cardboard. Since these boats are
