QUESTION APRIL 14th.

Did you ( or would you like to) paint /convert a mini to resemble a real life or movie character?

 

 

Have I? No. Not that talented. I do steal color combinations from what I see in movies (I have a color scheme plotted out for a wizard in Grandmaster's robes from Thor: Ragnarok).

 

Would I like to? Most definitely. I'd love a Karl Urban head on something. And several other people. Maybe if I ever take 3d art classes I could pull some of them off, but that day is a long ways away.

I can't remember painting one, but I wouldn't be against it if the right figure came along.

Question April 13th.

What is your favorite miniatures tabletop game?

Pretty much the only one I played more than once was Battletech during the 90s. Second closest was Bloodbowl.

 

In most cases, the miniatures used were stand-ins for the actual characters/mechs.

I don't think so. I've converted very few minis to begin with.

Bah! I am immune to your subtle manipulation.

I blame all this sublim-insidiousness for causing my memory sticks to go all pear shaped.  
 

**To find out what figure might be painted as what character alls ya gotta do is ask: And.., There’s tomorrow’s question for you…

Fox R&D please, we're dangerously low on cookies and coffee, two things that are downright essential to progress.  Tea is also getting a bit low too, now that you mention it...

  • Do you have a favorite one?
  • Has playing such a game led to painting /building miniatures/terrain and such because you got inspired?
  • Show us any minis/terrain you painted when inspired by these video/pc games.

I don’t. 
I used to play Diablo & Diablo II.

Also Warcraft 2.

 

Were those loosely based on D&D ?

I have no machine that will run those currently (same goes for any other games).

If I had any of the computer games in this category I am sure they would cause less painting time.

I was a big fan of the Baldur's Gate series (and Planescape:- Torment!) back in the day.

This was in between episodes of me being a painter, so the two hobbies never combined.

Might and Magic VI-VII back in the day.  Don't really have time anymore for video games, except for exercise using my Oculus Quest.  There I play a melee fighting game called "Until You Fall".  Quite good and really gives you a workout.

I've played a few. Dawn of war, mechanics, that really bad war machine game, battle tech, pathfinder kingmaker, mutant, the 3 shadow run games.  sure I'm missing other.

 

Favorite? Shadow run, either Hong Kong or dragon fall. Kind of a tie for both. 

 

Buildings and terrain? Not really. I had thought about making cardboard versions of some dawn of war buildings. But didn't have the space for it. 

 

Minis, I had converted a double cyber arms with blades girl inspired by glory, but it's not a very close likeness. 

Mechanicus also got me to finish up painting my admech army.

While I used to watch my sons play various video/pc games, I never played any.

I did enjoy watching the games, but they didn't inspire me to make anything other than some popcorn.

I'm playing Cyberpunk 2077 again right now, that's from the tabletop rpg. First time was on my old pc at 720p at ultra settings, which was an interesting experiment. Felt like playing an insanely beautiful PS3-era game. Last year I bought a new pc, so I'm playing through at 1440p/ultra (even though the machine can run it at 4k/60, it's in the living room so I like to throttle it and keep fan speeds down so it's quiet).

 

Beyond that I do like strategy games, though I'm not sure how many are based on tabletop games. X-Com 2 kinda feels a little like Infinity, I guess?

I played Warhammer Dark Omen, and Shadow of the Horned Rat.

Warhammer Mark of Chaos.

And I do play a lot of Total Warhammer I en II ( waiting for III to go on sale someday)

 

Total Warhammer Series is my favorite of such things

 

It kept my interest going in painting/building stuff for my Undead / Lizardmen and Tomb Kings.

Recently it made me think I can build a Vampire Coast Army.

And I've started that.
