  1. Kingdoms Forlorn You know you need more games you never play.
  2. Catapult Feud I really feel like my niece needs this game but my sister-in-law might disagree...
  3. Guardians of Fire
  4. Auberon

    Yucatan

    Yucatan I already have too many games I never play, but maybe you don't... I used to be able to remove the autoscaling for the images, but now the height is maxed at 750 and I don't see how to remove it.
  5. Last year PingosHusband, after noodling around Exalted (2nd edition) and World of Darkness rulebooks (Vampire the Masquerade 2nd edition, Werewolf the Apocalypse, Mage the Ascension, etc.), announced that he'd like to run an Exalted game set in the World of Darkness. We, his friends and loved ones, said “What, are you crazy? Have we not long joked about how unplayable and internally inconsistent the World of Darkness is; how its timeline makes no sense and its rules and worldbuilding are buried and often mutually contradictory; how foolish and suicidally incurious the various groups are regarding each other; and how so many of its many tragic angsty world-destroying problems could be solved if only each isolated group got its head out of its backside and actually talked to one of the others?” He said, “Hear me out,” and since we have long experience of his keen ability to run entertaining campaigns, we heard him out. See, PingosHusband has a knack rather like Alan Moore's ability to take unpromising old third rate comic book series and turn them into fascinating multifaceted mythic dynamos, or Neil Gaiman's ability to mine world mythology to create astounding and consistent and multilayered worlds, or James Burke or Kenneth Hite’s ability to take fascinating historical and technological developments and spin them into stories of human interconnectivity or disturbingly deep illuminati conspiracies for game use, respectively. More than once PingosHusband has taken historical oddments, played “What happens if this is taken seriously and assumed to make sense somehow?” and produced some wonderful story or game setting or world. (One of them won awards.) So apparently he did this with Exalted and World of Darkness, getting under the hood, finding the core of what worked and what didn’t, seeing what could be connected to what else and what made sense, what was clearly absurd, what needed tweaking, what could be fun, what couldn’t be possible, why things happened, and who could have done them. He looked keenly at characters, places and situations, saw potential for fun in a campaign, wrote up background, and presented us with an introductory players’ handout. I’ll get to particulars later. The simple version is that the world looks basically like the World of Darkness, except that all of a sudden a tiny number of people have Exalted with memories of the world of Exalted (“Creation”) and powers derived from it. There are five to begin with (the PCs), although more will come soon enough. I have to say, this game has so far been tremendous fun. Our group has been playing together for over thirty years and I have rarely seen all of us this excited about a game. Our teenage / adult children are also involved and we have been having vivid family conversations over meals about history, strategy, and characters. I’ve (of course) been painting up miniatures for the game. I’m having a lot of fun with these too. I’ll put links to Show Off threads when I have them up.
  6. and now for something completely different! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/necromolds/necromolds-monster-battles Story 48 Hour Exclusive: The Deluxe Distance Tool is made from flexible plastic and is used in the game to measure movement and ranged attack distances. This deluxe tool includes clay sculpting ends which allow you to sculpt and shape your monsters! Necromolds are a series of collectible toys that let you build and destroy terrifying miniatures out of Spell Dough, a soft modeling clay. The back of each Necromold spell book toy features the miniatures' game skills and abilities. Not only will the number of Necromold monsters continue to expand, but so will a new and exciting line of games to use them in! Necromolds Monster Battles is a streamlined and lite wargaming ruleset easy for tabletop players of all experiences to enjoy. The size of your monster army is limited by 3oz of Spell Dough. Build your army wisely, for each miniatures' strengths are balanced against the amount of Spell Dough required to mold them!
  7. Haven’t seen this one mentioned yet and it does seem a bit different for the zombie survival genre of miniatures games: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1519152481/z-war-one-exodus?ref=creator_nav - Theres a bit of a discount for those backing in the first 72 hours. I’ll admit I find this interesting. Like the ships and docks setting. Dice Sports also had a previous kickstarter for a different game, Damnation, that is set in the same world. I’m not familiar with the company or their previous game. If anyone here has had experience with either I’d like to hear what you think.
  8. The Kickstarter is live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1138228733/moonstone-fantasy-skirmish-game/description This one is for a skirmish game featuring their wonderfully fantastical minis many of which are available in either metal or resin.
  9. https://devilghost.com/software/travellercharacter/ Go to this site, and post the first character you generate! I'm curious how many of you survive...
  10. I'm not sold on the gameplay, but the tech and potential is interesting.
  11. Heard about this on the Meeples and Miniatures podcast and thought it sounded like an interesting game. Fourth Quarter Football gives you the feel of Football, but in a game that can be played in under one and a half hours. There are no endless tables and charts, just heart pumping action focusing on the key skill players (although with the addition of Subs Pack One, the game can be played up to the full eleven a side). The game has a unique combination table top miniatures action with tactical deck building.
  12. Just want to let folks know that we will be starting our next Frostgrave Campaign on January 14th. For those who would like to read about 2016's completed campaign, see the 2016 thread. We will use this new thread to post our After Action Reports and photos after each game of the upcoming campaign. Our plan is to start off doing the scenarios from the "Thaw of the Lich Lord" supplement book. In the meantime, I have posted on my blog a brief write-up introducing my new wizard and her apprentice: The Tale of the Wizard Quailelyn The main library of the Percensua University of Wizardly Studies, located in the capitol of Valindhoa, was an old and cavernous stone building near the center of the ancient school's campus. One of the first built on the land donated by the king some 800 years ago, it had developed it's share of drafts, groaning hinges, and uneven floors. The young students hated the place, calling it "The Tomb" for it's dark, damp and ancient nature. To Maga Librarian Quailelyn, it was home...
  13. If you had to make a costume from components that you had in your wardrobe and house right now, what would it be?
  14. Inspired by this post by Darsc Zacal, I'm starting a new game, "What Mini Am I Anyway?" Anyone can participate. The idea seems to be to see if you can identify a miniature from its silhouette and possibly some clues. Thematic groups are not required, but can add to the fun. This is the image that spurred the idea: Clues: This is a party of PCs in a game loosely (very loosely) based on White Wolf's World of Darkness. Two figures are from Reaper; I mentioned the sources of two of the other figures on these forums last month. One figure has been modified by the removal of a weapon. Players are encouraged to identify the figures by company, name (if any) and SKU number (if any). Prizes are, um, the respect of your awesome detectoring skills and "Likes".
  15. I wasn't sure what the GM was going to run last night, so I just grabbed everything I painted last year. Sorry for the bad phone photos. In the scenario, 5 of us return from a weekend camping trip to find the base invaded. The pink rectangles represent helicopters. We cleared the table with hand weapons and judicious use of twerking. :D
  16. Hi, this is my second art project with dice. look here Support it please.
  17. Our group played the second game of our Frostgrave Campaign today, and since three of us are Reaper Forum members, I thought I would start a thread so all the photos and after-action reports could be put in one place. For an account of our first game, please see my blog here: http://onemoregamingproject.blogspot.com/2016/02/frostgrave-campaign-kick-off-game.html You can take a look at my war band going into this game in this Show Off thread: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/67471-my-frostgrave-illusionists-warband/#entry1324951 Once again, my Illusionist, Kodak, and his trusty apprentice, Cherowyn, found themselves. entering the city near the harbor. A Chronomancer, known as The Doctor, also chose to search the harbor and Kodak's warband spent most of the game skirmishing with them. The Doctor brought along three Crossbowmen and a Marksman, which played havoc with my Illusionist's warband, not to mention the Illusionist himself. Just like last time, it was not a good day for Kodak's party as they quickly found themselves pinned down by the massive firepower being brought against them from The Doctor's team. It only got worse when some men from a nearby Druid's (Witch) warband started firing on them as well. The final straw was when wandering creature rolls put a Minor Demon, and an Ice Spider directly in our rear. In the end it was only the quick action of Cherowyn, who was able to fend off both wandering creatures long enough to cast a successful Mind Control spell on the Doctor's Infantryman who was carrying a treasure, that netted us our only treasure of the game. Several members of the party were incapacitated during he game, the worst being our new Treasure Hunter, Jaquailwyn (Jack), who had just joined our warband after the last game. She was shot by The Doctor's apprentice, River Song, who used her laser pistol (Elemental Bolt spell) killing the unfortunate Treasure Hunter dead. The other bad casualty was Kodak himself, taken out by one of The Doctor's crossbowmen. Though Kodak recovered himself without any permanent injury, it was such a Close Call that he apparently became disoriented and left his new Staff of Power behind in the ruins. Luckily he had had the chance to use the staff once to boost a near successful Mind Control spell of his own. I had a blast, and am looking forward to the next get-together.
  18. This Kickstarter is to get the rules and other non-miniature components of Broken Contract into physical print form, with new miniatures as stretch goals. I backed the 1st Kickstarter for the miniatures and they are excellent sculpts and casts, they are also in the add-on section as well as the 2 player starter set pledge, which also contains the 5 KSE minis from the 1st Kickstarter. Kickstarter link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/401223236/broken-contract-rulebook-relaunch/description Guerrilla Miniature Games play through:
  19. So, recently, I enjoyed visiting twitter (something I never really do and am honestly uncertain if "visiting" is even the right word to employ...showing my age, I know...) and looking at the pictures from the Cute Animal Tweet Off. It made my day! A bight a cheery bit of internet amid the dark an depressing wintery mix around it. I feel inspired to start our own miniature version of this! Let's have a game! Post pictures of cute miniatures we find all around the internet. They can be your own work, so someone else's, just make sure to credit the source! And have fun!!! Bring joy to others through the power of CUTE! Here's one I've always loved: Ali Bailey's version of the Easter Mousling. Soooooo cute!!!!
  20. Not sure how this hasn't been posted yet. An excellent war game now including Reaper Bones. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/436647892/the-witchborn-enter-perdition
  21. It's been procrastinated for way too long. These are the robot miniatures from my Robo Rally board game. Finally gotten a semi decent paint job. Poor Twitch has been lost under a couch somewhere, and has been replaced by a 3d printed version of Borderlands' Claptrap. He'll get a greenstuffed arrow-like base to match the others when I eventually get to it. But at least they have some colour! :)
  22. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/fossilpunkfoundry/sauriana-54mm-miniatures-game?ref=category_newest Sauriana is a 54mm miniature wargame set in an alternate 19th century, rife with dinosaurs, explorers, adventure and intrigue.
  23. The grand folks at Firaxis games produced a winner for me. They updated the classic XCOM game and produced XCOM 2. I thought it stayed true to the feel of the original game while adding great looks and good game play. The plot is Aliens have invaded Earth and are trying to take over. You have to stop them and save the human race. In the second release you failed and your team are now a rag tag bunch of terrorists trying to bring down the one world government. One of the nice things they did was to throw the game open to modding. If you purchased the game on steam you can also subscribe to the XCOM to developer package free of charge. They make the tools and ALL the assets from the game available. I wanted to see if I could extract game assets and print some mementos for my self. I found out you definitely can extract the assets. The only issue with printing them is they're optimized for visual presentation and not for 3d printing. I started with something simple and edited it for FDM printing. I present the Alien overlord statue! (You show your love for your overlords by blowing it up in the introductory trailing mission) FDM has issues with "overhangs". You can't draw molten plastic with nothing under it. Gravity pulls the molten plastic and it doesn't just hang in mid air. Darn gravity! I split the statue in half so there are minimal overhangs. The arms are built up vertically from the bottom to the top: Each mirrored half was printed: Then a test fitting: Slapped on some one part bondo (for fixing scratches on cars): a bunch of sanding: Then some spray painted gold paint: A 3d printed base: And it's done! I'm happy with the result. The surface texture is still not wonderful. I'm still experimenting with methods to improve that. It's supposed to look like this: Have a great weekend, See you at ReaperCon! Jay
