As our games often go forward fast, that question often comes up. Especially when fighting against enemies that can see in darkness, it can become important. It is often ignored, but it can become an effective combat tactic to get rid of opponent's lights.
Here's a paper model of a chemical container train car I've used as a prop in my Savage Cyberworld -campaign. Print it on two A4/Letter sheets, on cardstock, 120g paper or something else strudier than standard paper. I haven't added instructions as the model is quite simple, and I didn't see it necessary to add the parts that attach train cars to each other (whatever they are called in English), model worked quite well without them.
My Beasts & Barbarians campaign starts soon, and I wanted to take a few inspirational photos while waiting for the game. These diorama-like photos have only few pieces of terrain, but represent situations that might well be epic moments in a Sword & Sorcery game.
Here's a small free papercraft download for you - something little that's easy to put together and can enliven your modern, cyberpunk, scifi or other roleplaying or miniature games. Hospital beds, curtains and small bedside -desks. These pieces were used in my Savage Cyberpunk game.
There are times when you get a brilliant idea about a miniature you have. This happened to me a few weeks ago; I ordered some extra minis of same type and ended up having a bunch of both mean-looking death squad soldiers and excellent looking game props, impaled men.
I used to run a D20 Star Wars campaign years ago, and I created some At-St walkers for it. I created an original piece and then made a mold of it and created a few pieces. I used my AT-AT model kit and the chicken walkers with paper miniatures and they worked well. This was before I got addicted to plastic Star Wars miniatures.
I didn't buy the At-At miniature, but I've been using this kit with the miniatures. Even if it's a bit small to be used with the miniatures, it looks ok if there's no other vehicles around, but even if there is it's still better than nothing.
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. And sorry for rss spamming - I needed to change the title more relevant.
I told you briefly about Arcane Legions miniatures in my first post about miniatures for Sword & Sorcery. Now I'll give you a bit more insight of these minis if you consider using them in a Sword & Sorcery game - or any ancient era/fantasy roleplaying game.
I've collected minis from various product lines for Sword & Sorcery roleplaying campaign for some time now. Recent discussion at Savage Worlds forums about what minis should be used for Beasts & Barbarians game gave me an idea perhaps I should document my collections and help others to find miniatures for their Sword & Sorcery games.
