Very nice work.

 

And my old college self can't help but to imagine a Blood Bowl overlay to go with it.

This is really nice, you put a bit of work into it. Did you design the 3d print tiles yourself?

I'm trying to think of a way to get an outdoor setting and still keep the grid going. 

 

I've been thinking about a way to do this too, but more with modular tiles (made from foam, unlike your nice 3d print ones). If you don't have to make it modular, some of the ideas I've had floating around might work better for you than me. You could remove the dungeon texture, put the grass or dirt flock of your choice on whichever tile (avoid the grid grooves), and once all that is dry and secure, carefully paint glue into the grooves and flock with a darker color where appropriate (a darker green where it's supposed to be grass, darker brown where it is supposed to divide dirt). Or just use a darker paint in the grooves instead of flock.

 

You could possibly make some really nice tiles that have parts of dirt and parts of grass.

For overland, you could probably just get a sheet of green felt. If the magnets are working as well to maintain the grid as you are describing, it might work just fine without the grid being completely visible.

Yeah, i considered that! Unfortunately for my system you often need to count the squares between you an an enemy as you have to expend actions to move. So it needs to be easily countable.


Thanks for the thought though!

I actually had the tiles designed on Fiverr. It's been a long while since i've done any 3d work that this seemed a little out of my comfort zone. i DID build the STl files for the gold tiles though, but they were much much more simple. 

 

Good idea simply using colour to denote the tile, I suppose i could simply make the grid pattern out of green flock with worn areas of dirt to denote the center of the tile. Should be pretty straight forward. Thanks for the idea!

Cheers,


Chris

Thanks! It's been a really fun project to keep me busy during the Corona virus lockdown. Haven't had a chance to use it yet in game yet!

Can someone suggest me the best war games?

There are so many that are good, it is a loooooong list. For tabletop/non role playing games, Battletech and Warhammer 40K have been around the longest and are very well supported. If you are looking for role playing games, Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder are the 2 big fantasy games with Starfinder becoming very popular in just 3 years for scifi.

      Hello forum Family, Ciccio is back with more awful minis! 
      I'm trying to get the Blood Rage minis painted ATM, and well... no problem with big guys like the troll or the frost giant, but the smaller minis... O  M  G!
      The worst sculpt I had to paint in my life... really CMON?
      Anyway, is a game, I don't pretend the super quality, and do not need to paint every mini perfectly...
      Let's get it started:

      the whole party (sorry for the bad pic...):


      The Valkyrie:

       
      The Soldier of Hel:

       
      The Volur Witch:


      The Dark Elf:

       
      The Dwarf Chieftan:


      As you can see nothing special, tabletop standard.
      Not so "Speed painting" cause of the lack of detail/bad sculpt, anyway from 1 hour (fro the Witch) to 4 hours (the Valkyrie).
      Hope you'll like them. 
      C&C welcome as always.
      Thank you!

      Guns, ninjas, hobbits, dogs, monkeys, pumpkins, and mancatchers. 

      Sure, you *say* you could otherwise do some conversion. But good luck finding a mancatcher *and* a monkey.
       
      Stuff's in metal and cast in the USA. Magnets are from China, but they have multiple suppliers.

      So I was just about to check out my first Star Wars Legion game night at the lfgs when the whole apocalypse thing happened, so rather than painting my Imperials, I've been focusing on  getting my rebel scum assembled so that wife (who is "mostly" interested in playing) and I can learn to play here at home. With that complete I now need to get some more Imperials finished so we can actually play, since I'm not attaching bases to the Imperials until they are painted.
      As my wife actually agreed to play this weekend, that meant I needed a commander quick!  So I pulled up the FFG guide online to paint Vader and knocked out a decent tabletop in a couple of hours.
       

       
      Good enough and he already squeaked on a victory yesterday in our first game (he had one wound left).
      Now back to painting white armor to get more troopers ready.....sigh.

      This is the delightful Stonehave female halfling mage.  Did slight OLS from the spell effect. Other than that, totally a tabletop paintjob.

      Been a while since I posted a show-off....hopefully I'll be more productive painting this year. Of to a good start, I've already painted more than double my total for last year....
       
      I've started painting up some of the Star Wars Legion figures I've been picking up from my lfgs for the last half year or so. I started with a unit of Stormtroopers out of the starter box.  These were supposed to be a nice super quick tabletop paint job to get the year started. While they were a quick tabletop paint job, that quick ended up being spread over 2 months....hopefully I will get better at getting some painting in more often over the next couple of months.
       

      The whole unit.
       

      Standard troopers.
       

      Commander and specialists.
