  1. That's kind of crazy. Both the production values and the devotion to the cartoon are way beyond what seems reasonable. Are we 100% sure that there isn't a movie coming out that this is a tie-in promotion with? I mean we would know, right?

    This thread is going places. Very pretty places.
  3. I hadn't really thought about the four rangers gaming the turn sequence. Good point. The zombies at least had a better chance of seeing some survivable rolls from the heroes. I agree that the randomness of the the combat and the lack of any way to take casualties from earlier in the mission into account makes things hard if not impossible to balance. I wonder if requiring, say, a Survival 8 test to set fire to the trees might make things a bit more interesting. Here is a pic from mid game. And yeah, a 4 isn't going to cut it

    Paint and play and take

    Here is the display: I had the wrong box o' orcs with me and I need to put some paint on a few bases...
  5. Is is just me or is the second scenario in the book maybe too easy. Granted this time we had four players but even after I threw on extra spiders it amounted to a cakewalk. What do people think of upping their armor a bit?

    Yeah, you changed that guy up quite a bit and he looks awesome.

    Paint and play and take

    A while ago I ran a paint and take at my FLGS. I meant to do more of them but real life issues got in the way. With those somewhat under control, I've been thinking that I can fit it in. I've been playing a bit of Rangers of Shadowdeep and came up with the idea of the "Paint and Play and Take". In short a paint and take where each person paints a ranger and then we learn and play Rangers with my companions, bad guys and terrain. Here is the layout the FLGS will be using to advertise this event. It will be in the bottom of the display case for a few weeks. Believe it or not, that's the least fuzzy that I managed but you might make out Zombies coming out of of the buildings on the left Orcs (led by wargs) marching down the road. Spiders climbing out of the forest. Rats swarming out of the building on the right Unpainted ranger figure and companions preparing for a last stand around the statue.

    IMO, the bear might look better once the rider has been painted.

    Working up some fantasy terrain

    Used some truck bed spray paint to add some texture to some med bottle top plinths. Also found a decent use for Sigmarines.

    The size difference of the Lee-Enfields between Artizan and, say, Warlords plastics is also remarkable. I'm thinking of getting some of the Perry US guys to replace some metal figs I had to use in my Kagnew Battalion force. The will probably be closer to the scale of the Wargames Factory that make up the majority. The US advisers will remain in bulky metal. Still kind of mad at Empress for putting out their WW2 range just after I painted that project.

    I just succumbed to warlords latest "Sprue Sale". Not sure when I'm going to get around to painting the desert armies I just ordered.

    Just made some bases for some evergreen trees I bought. Also the heads of some toy dino skeletons are being turned into objective markers.

    Little known "fact", in Australia they have turn off the lights by flicking the switchs up.

    I'm using the towns people in the same way to get back into a painting groove.
