Altering pacifism -hindrance in your games

Pacifism hindrance

Pacifism is a type of hindrance/disadvantage/flaw that works very differently in different types of games. In most games I play or run, no-one would take the pacifism unless there's a work-a-round against it's limitations - and I can't blame anyone for that, as these games usually have at least one combat each session, and usually everyone's most eagerly waiting for those combats! And they often are the most exciting parts of a game session.

In-progress pics of the scratchbuilt Star Wars starship collection

Scratchbuilding Imperial Escort Carrier

While browsing through old photos, I found a few modelling/WIP photos of perhaps the most popular content of this site - miniature -scale Scratchbuilt Star Wars starships collection. I uploaded them here and at the same time, separated WIP pics and tutorials from the original Star Wars scratchbuilt starship models post to reduce the size and put them here to create one separate WIP/tutorial post.

A closer look to Star Wars interior terrain pieces

I've spent a lot of time to prepare some big changes for the site, but it's already some time from my previous post and I wanted to post something new on the site. I started digging my materials and found some photos of Star Wars interior terrain pieces I had traded away, very similar to those I'm using myself. I realized that I had't made article showing my Star Wars interior terrains in detail, so now you'll see better pictures of these terrains, as well as get some insight about how these terrains were built.

 

A list every prepainted miniatures fan should be aware of

While the most stuff I'm posting here is created by myself, once in a while I find something I must share. Today, I stumbled upon a new list at boardgamegeek, one collecting together various products containing prepainted miniatures. While I knew most of them, there were many new ones on the list too. From Star Wars Starship battles and Mage Knight to Angels 20 and Shadows over Camelot: A Company of Knights, you'll find here info and pictures of prepainted miniatures of many different genres and flavor.

Throw some Moon Nazis at your players!

Moon nazis will land on USA too! This is important news, as majority of my readers - and a lot of potential movie fans - are from US. I'm talking about Iron Sky, a movie that no-one dared to make in Hollywood. Iron Sky has been sold to over 30 countries already. In USA, at least 10 largest cities will see this epic movie, distributed by Entertainment One. The movie is planned to be debut in US in april-may.

Iron Sky - The movie you should really be waiting for this year!

Iron Sky SS troopers

There's one movie I'm waiting for this year - Iron Sky. From the makers of Star Wreck (which you can download for free - unlike SW, Iron Sky is a big budget movie), Iron Sky is the most expensive Finnish movie (no, doesn't look like anything Finnish you've seen before, it's a international film like Rare Exports, not anything like Kaurismäki's). The movie premiers in a few days in Berlin and is coming to Finnish theatres in april, and in other locations later.
