    Thunderstone Quest by AEG

    Thunderstone Quest by AEG is the third in a line of deck builder style games with the Thunderstone name. I never played the first two, but each iteration got a little more love from the fans. This version certainly knocks it out of the park and my friend and I played through a good portion of the included "quests" (which were basically recommended card to play with). The miniatures it comes with aren't strictly necessary, but they do look better then colored pieces of wood. Because it is a board game, I wanted to give everyone a separate colored base to make them stand out a little more and give them a bit more personality. The warrior's color scheme is inspired by Iron Man. I was able to borrow a metallic red paint (Retro Red Steel) and I like how he turned out for the most part. For the wizard, I wanted to use my MSP SAMPLE , which is the pinkish/purplish color of her...cloak (?). I gave the dwarven barbarian a white beard because, frankly, nothing is scarier than an old barbarian. He sorta fell into the brown color because I painted the fairy druid right before him and wanted a darker color. The fairy druid didn't quite turn out how I'd like, but it still works. There is a great version of him on Board Game Geek that had an autumn color scheme so I tried to emulate that. The explorer was the last figure I did because he wasn't really that interesting. I do like how his bags and pipes came out. I like how the rogue came out the best. I decided early on that she's have purple hair and a purple color scheme. One thing that annoyed me about her was the fact that I used several different types of black on her outfit, but it all just looks the same when all is said and done. Still, I love how she turned out.

    Cthulhu Wars: Onslaught Three

    Cthulhu Wars: Onslaught Three, featuring a faction called "The Ancients" has just been announced by Petersen Games, set to launch July 17th. EDIT: starts at 8 AM CST Monday July 17th.
  3. Original model, from board game Wander: Cult of Barnacle Bay, by Panda Cult Games. Customer requested a trident in the hand and a base. Couldn't find a freekkkin trident anywhere except some European company that couldn't get it here until after the deadline, so I had to mod a spear. Finished Product follows: C&C or things to do better next time would be much appreciated.
  4. Soooooo, those who read my Armada post may remember a statement I made that went like this: THIS IS WHERE I DRAW THE LINE... I think. Well that went out the window when I saw some clearance planes called "Wings of War". The models would look good on my display shelf... that is until I looked up "Wings of War" and then "Wings of Glory" was listed also. Needless to say when I saw the Videos they got me hook-line and sinker. Ah, the Emperor again, for scale comparison. The painting detail is quite impressive. So this is not the half of it. Check out my next posting.
  5. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/ccgames/war-titans-invaders-must-die-1?ref=category_newest&ref=discovery About War Titans is a cooperative game in which 2 to 4 Players face waves of Invaders controlled by the mechanics of the game itself. Every Player acts as the Pilot of a Titan, a powerful combat robot capable of facing the menace of the giant monsters. The aim of the game is to close the Rifts which the monsters are coming from and destroy as many Invaders as possible, trying to avoid flattening out the whole planet in the process!
  6. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1449412950/wild-assent-survive-the-arena-and-tame-the-wilds?ref=discovery Don't miss the adventure, danger or sweet, sweet miniatures. Click the above "Notify me on launch" button now to be notified the instant the Wild Assent campaign goes live! As a special thanks to early backers, if you pledge for Wild Assent within the first 72 hours of the campaign, you'll receive Lady Aylwen and the Unicorn (and all of their cardboard goodies) absolutely FREE! Wild Assent is a 1-4 player miniatures board game with player-versus-player and solo/cooperative modes. Battle your opponents in the gladiatorial arenas of the Silvestrem in Wild Assent’s skirmish-style Arena mode. Hunt the dangerous creatures of the Wilds, by yourself or with friends, fighting not just for survival, but to keep your expedition alive in the campaign-based Hunt mode. Regardless of the mode you choose, Wild Assent offers tactical and entertaining combat combined with strategic an interesting decisions to make before the miniatures even hit the board. Wild Assent is the complete package. It features incredible miniatures, quality cardboard components and engaging gameplay. Its PvP skirmish and solo/cooperative survival modesoffer vastly different play experiences while sharing the same fundamental combat mechanics. The core game box for Wild Assent contains everything you need to begin your expedition into the Wilds or to crush your enemies in the gladiatorial arenas of the Silvestrem. No adventure in either realm will be the same as the last as Wild Assent's customization options and deck mechanics ensure replayability for years to come. Wild Assent miniatures are made from a HIPS-based material that retains an amazing amount of detail from the original 3D sculpt. Each miniature is produced as a single piece, allowing for more dynamic poses, intricate bases and absolutely zero assembly. A good number of Wild Assent miniatures have already been produced. Molds have been made and we are able to present them to you as mass production models in the video below. Wild Assent minis are made in 32mm scale. For those who want to see what it actually means, here are some of the minis shown on size chart below. While Berlyn as a rather short human barely passes 30mm, some of the bigger creatures are easily getting over 50mm in height. Prior to campaign launch we sent some Wild Assent production miniatures to King of Average who created a short unboxing video.

    Tang Garden

    About The Tang dynasty was considered the first golden age of the classical and now iconic Chinese gardens. Emperor Xuanzong built the magnificent imperial Garden of the Majestic Clear Lake as an homage of life itself. Tang Garden is a Zen-like game that will take you to the first golden age of China, where players will progressively build a garden by creating the landscape, placing the scenery and projecting their vision through vertical panoramas. During the construction, noblemen will visit the garden to admire the surroundings and the way the natural elements coexist in the most breathtaking scenery humankind has ever laid their eyes upon.
  8. The nice detail of this game is it can be used with just the Aircraft Cards without the miniatures if you need to travel light. So now the WWII game:With all the planes to scale, makes the bombers huge. As I said, there is more to come, stay tuned.

    Adrenaline

    Adrenaline is a board game made to simulate a first person shooter, sort of. From left to right we have Dozer, Sprog (he's from Texas), Violet, :D-Struct-Or, and Banshee. I still need to put some sealer on, but I wanted to take pictures before that. I'm not too happy with how :D-Struct-Or came out. He's a case of, stop before you aren't happy with the final product. However because I did him first, I was more sparing with the others and I think they came out ok. Good enough to look nice on the table top. Thematic paint used (left to right): Military Grey, Alien Ooze, Witchcraft Purple, Beacon Yellow, Maggot White (its hard to be thematic with an alien octopus woman) Bonus Thematic Paint: Violet's hair is MSP SAMPLE PINK, which I hate using because there is a limited supply, but it always wants to be used. I'm torn!
  11. Started on these this week, thought I'd throw them up before I went to bed. C&C always appreciated, especially on the antelope, I'm having a hard time think what I could do to improve it, but I think it was too easy to get it looking that good. Underside of the antelope is still a wip, BIGTIME, I've barely started on it. I mean the gorey sinewy muscle for the tips to make better. KDM story spoilers ahead...
  12. Survivor Zachary, assembled, green stuff'd, primed in white, base flesh tone and hair, and skin wash. Working on the eyes now, he's not supposed to look like batman.

    Screaming Antelope

    Started assembling this guy, the horn got glued on wrong so I had to separate it and reposition. Still going to greenstuff the gaps but got these pics to check the positioning of the horn.

    Specter Ops - Painted

    Okay, first of all, this isn't so much about, "Gee, look at what awesome paint jobs I managed to sloppily churn out over the holiday," as it is more about, "Wow, this board game has some rather cool minis that could be interesting for a cyberpunk campaign." Anyway, every now and again I work on painting up board game minis for a friend with at least enough detail that they can be visually distinguished easily enough on the table. As such, most of my effort goes into color-coding, and that's especially the case here. (AGENTS - L to R: Orangutan, Cobra, Blue Jay, Spider) The game has two teams: Agents, and Hunters. The big catch of the game is that you don't just stick all the minis and move them around as playing pieces like you would in a normal game. Rather, there's a hide-and-seek element at play, where the player of the Agents is secretly tracking their actual positions, and the player of the Hunters is trying to hunt them down before they can complete their secret objectives, with some predetermined missions and a lot of tracking required to keep things honest. The cards for the characters have color-coded frames -- red for Agents, blue for Hunters -- so the first and easy part was just to make sure that the figure alignments are clear by the color of the rings. The character art is nearly monochromatic -- the suggestion seems to be that just about EVERYONE is dressed in black, and so the main color elements of the artwork seem to be based upon the idea of bathing each character in a different shade of light. So, maybe Orangutan is really dressed in armor that looks rather orange (or brown -- hard to say), or he just happened to be bathed in some amber-red light, or something like that. This color-coded scheme serves me well for the Hunters, but not so much for the Agents: Aside from Orangutan, their artwork depicts ALL of them as dark with primarily bluish highlights. Fortunately, their silhouettes are SO different from each other that I don't think anyone's going to mix them up. Cobra suffered from having a hopelessly bendy sword blade that defied attempts to straighten it out. I ended up fashioning a replacement out of a pewter sprue tab, and pinning it in place. (HUNTERS - L to R: The Beast, The Prophet, The Puppet, The Gun) See, here I had a bit more color to work with. Beast's artwork is mainly purple-blue, the Prophet is all green, Puppet stands around in red light, and The Gun stands in a dusky sunset scene that makes him look all golden-orange. I could have just dry-brushed them all with the requisite color and called it a day, but I added a few details here and there (skin tones for bare skin anywhere I got a hint that there SHOULD be any skin tone, for instance, and bright points of white -- usually the eyes). I probably could have done the gun of The Gun in more of a gunmetal look, but I felt that it would detract too much from the otherwise one-color look that dominates the figures, since the gun comprises SO MUCH of the figure. I suppose the Prophet could have gotten some skin-tone as well, but the artwork for him makes him SO GREEN. I tried to compromise by mixing a lighter and slightly greyed shade of green for the head, but it doesn't really show up well in the photo. Too subtle? Probably. For the bottoms, I painted them graphite-grey, then wrote the figure name in white acrylic, but that's only barely legible. It's more a clue for someone who already knows the names but for some reason can't FOR SURE remember which mini is which. ;) I'm not showing THAT, since it'd just look painfully ugly in a photo.

    Not-A-Mini: Aquire game board

    Been working on a commission for the last week, haven't progressed much on the Cthulhu Wars stuff. This is the result of my labor:
  19. I just painted up the Stone Juggernaut from the Tomb of Annihilation board game.

    Too Many Bones: Undertow

    New 'Expansion' for Too Many Bones. The game is a lot of fun, but definitely has a pretty steep learning curve when trying to figure out all the dice and timing of things.

    Blood Rage

    Wow I feel really outclassed here but I've gotta start somewhere... Painted these for a friend's birthday, it was several months past his birthday when I finished, lol. Unfortunately before I could properly finish he had to move so I had to rush and couldn't do as much as I'd like. A lot of bases remained unpainted, and some touch ups on some of the skintones that I was planning on doing after had to be left as they were. Not sure how many I can fit before it starts flagging me as spam so I'm just gonna show a photo of all of them, and then some of the monsters. They're the ones I'm most satisfied with.

    Cerebria - The Inside World

    About this project Cerebria is a team-based area control game for 2-4 players, set in a person's mind, re-imagined as a vibrant fantasy world. Players assume the role of Spirits, followers of the Inside World's two opposing forces, Bliss and Gloom, with the goal of shaping Cerebria's Identity to their image. For that purpose, they have been granted power over the Emotions, Cerebria's denizens: they can invoke, move, empower and evolve Emotions to influence and control Cerebria's Realms and Frontiers. Cerebria's state is in constant flux until a Spirit triggers a Revelation - these are key moments in the game when the current game state is evaluated and is preserved as a permanent Bliss or Gloom fragment on the Identity. Cerebria is a deep and highly customizable game full of player interaction, where timing and cooperation with your teammate are essential to victory. Multiple aspects of area control: Cerebria features seven different aspects of area control. The game is objective-driven: while each of these control aspects give benefits, their importance in scoring will change dynamically based on the Aspiration (objective) cards. Each side will have their own secret Aspiration, but there is also a common one, contested by both sides. By gaining resources from the Origin, players will eventually trigger Revelations - this is when the Aspiration cards are evaluated, and a Bliss or Gloom Fragment is added to the Identity based on the result. Leave your Mark on Cerebria's Identity: Cerebria has an innovative scoring system, manifesting in an impressive physical form in the middle of the board: the Identity. It is built of Fragments scored by Bliss and Gloom during Revelations, and apart from keeping track of the struggle between the two sides, both its size and facing have ongoing effects on the gameplay. The Emotion cards: Cerebria's gameplay revolves around the Emotions, the Inside World's inhabitants. These quirky little guys all have their unique, thematic special abilities, and an Intensity value that depends on the amount of Essence in them. The more intense they are, the more effectively they can influence Cerebria's Realms and Frontiers - with enough Essence, they can even be evolved to their stronger form! There are dozens of different Emotions available, with even more to come - enough to build and customize your own Emotion deck before each game to suit your play style. Team game with thematic play modes for various player numbers Cerebria has a strong team play aspect: in a four player game, each side controls two Spirits, working together to spread Bliss or Gloom across the Inside World. However, we are also adding a game mode where a player can play with an empowered version of a Spirit: the Shaper. The Shaper has additional abilities and more actions to match up against two Spirits at once, making it an ideal alternative for 3-player games, and for 2-player games with two Shapers. We have even more game modes for various player numbers as stretch goals that we can't wait to reveal! Note: The design, quantity and color of the above components are still subject to change as we finalize the game.
  24. Here is another of my Imperial Assault figures. IG-88. I followed the Sorastro guide, which involved drybrushing, washes, drybrushing, etc. 4 or 5 cycles. Then painting on some forced highlights, then a blue wash on one side and a red one on the other. This was fast, and a little sloppy. But fast. C&C Welcome.
  25. To break up your F5's for the Bones IV Kickstarter... Allow me to present another installment of my Imperial Assault work. I have been following the suggestions from the Sorastro Youtube Guides, but with Reaper Paints. Gideon Argus is a field general. It took a few tries to get a skin tone I was happy with, but I am pleased now. Not too sold on the dust effect on the jacket, but it is what it is. C&C welcome.
