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!


Cheers,

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.

      My LFGS had a painting contest on its FB Star Wars Legion page a bit ago.  2 weeks to paint up a squad of at least 4 figures. As creativity counted, I decided to set my white and black paint aside and paint something besides Stormtroopers.
      I took a look through the Rebel scum I'd acquired and really like the poses and sculpts for the Rebel Veterans.
      I'd planned to do the whole box of 7 figures, but (as anyone who's seen my WIPs knows) I'm not the fastest painter.  I'm lucky if I can get one figure done in two weeks.
      So I quickly decided to just do 4 figures for the contest.

      I liked how they came out, and they did get "best painted" in the contest,  so I guess they are alright.
       
      It then took me another 6 weeks to finally finish the last 3 figures (see?  Sloooooow.)
      But the whole unit is finally done.

       
      Should probably read the rules on them sometime soon.....
       
      Now back to all those Stormtroopers.

      Look at that winning smile!  He wants you to come for dinner....
      Reaper Bones Burrowing Horror (SKU 77372)
      I am sad to see the paint has rubbed off in some places, might have to try to patch that up by using some Reaper liner.

      This was a quick speed paint, less than an hour. And I think the Night Spectre (Reaper Bones SKU 77099) turned out looking awesome for the amount of effort put in.

      Some basic tabletop paint jobs on Goldar the Barbarian (Reaper Bones 77047) and Dub Bullock (Reaper Bones 77027).  Their faces where pretty mangled, so I didnt want to spend a lot of time on them. 

       

       

       

       

       
      I had painted Goldar earlier, and on that one the face was fine.  SO I think I was unlucky on the above Goldar:

      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!
