Rocket Propelled Games bi-monthly newsletter and mini painting contest

Recommended Posts

Kit said I should introduce myself so here goes, I or should I say we , are a small group of gamers that are in the development phase of a new kind of modular terrain for use in any game system that uses minis, we will offer our terrain in every scale we can produce it in. As of right now we are designing for six different genres, Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Steampunk, Horror, Urban zombie apocalypse, and Ancient Rome. We are seeking the involvement from the miniatures gaming community to help us produce a line of terrain that is truly designed with gamers in mind. Please send us any questions , concerns, ideas, or advice you may have.


Yesterday we released issue 01 of our terrain newsletter, in it you can find info about the terrain we are designing, what you can do to help, info about contests we are holding and much more to come. If you are not a subscriber it is not too late.

After looking back, we have realized that the theme we have selected is a mighty bit to specific so we thought we would expand on it a bit. Submissions may include any character that you might find in a tavern, (Fantasy miniatures only) . We have also decided to allow the submissions to be posted here under this thread. Keep in mind that submissions will still be excepted via email or facebook. If you have any suggestions on how we can broaden the scope of this competition let your voices be heard,


Thank you much,

Rocket Propelled Games

Nearing the end , only 5 days left to submit you entry for the mini painting contest before round 2 starts up. For clarification you may paint a mini other than a gnome wizard as long as it is a character you would expect to see in the tavern from the description in the newsletter. If you are not already subscribed to our newsletter , please send us an email at [email protected]


Issue 1 is shown above, issue 2 is scheduled for release by the end of the week. Issue 2 will be much longer with a lot more content ranging from painting tips for beginners, New items and creatures for roll playing games, as well as encounters, and information about what we are working on. Hope to see lots more great submissions.

Here is my Evil Gnome.


I've converted his knife to a spanner with hand guard/hilt.


My photography is not good. I have a yellow light and a blue light and can't seem to get anything close to neutral. I think I'm going to get a light box and see what happens.


Hope you like the mini.

      It has been a while since my last post, I'm am just struggling to find the free time to sit down and paint or build at the moment.
      Anyway, this week I got the opportunity to run some run some 'build along' model making workshops with the kids at the Youth Centre where I work, and we have been putting together little X-mas themed display pieces.  It was actually pretty fun being able to share and introduce a new generation to the joys of my nerdy hobby.  I was pretty pleased with how they turned out so I figured I would share. 
      The base is just a piece of log, and the moose is a very cheap plastic toy (I repainted mine), which I managed to find at a local discount store in big buckets of 50 animals for £2, they really cheap and nasty, but actually paint up nicely.  Everything else is just standard modeling stuff, sculptamold, static grasses, clump foliage etc.
      On another note I have not forgotten about or abandoned my Apocalyptic Suburbia Journal, it is still sat on my desk gathering dust.  I plan to get back to it in the new year.

      (Yes, the title is a throwback to a contest I ran years ago on here....no I'm not running another one, with today's shipping rates, ugh......)
      This is where I'm going to work on 3D printed terrain pieces for Star Wars Legion, most of which currently are going to be spaceships.  Because why use generic terrain when you can be shooting Rebel Scum hiding behind X-wings and the like?
      Up first is this:

      All the FDM bits are there, but most of the resin bits (guns, ramp, interior) are still in a bin waiting to have their supports removed and cured.
      I figured I should get a thread started as maybe that will get me over that initial hurdle of actually starting.  This has all been printed for a week or two and just sitting there....plus I'm gonna need that airbrush booth for other things sooner or later....
      I will, of course, be attempting to make this look somewhat like the original episode 5 version, not some retconned prequel sillyness.
      Now to go listen to some Prism.

      WIP is here.First 3 pages include lighthouse. Mobile site has been a pain, so I'll add comments later. This was meant to be modular for storage.
