There's a nice amount of sales here and there and also I've been browsing and doing some purchases here and there - both physical maps (or actually tiles) and printable ones. I've found good ones and also seen little disappointments.
Cemetery, Graveyard, Necropolis, City of the Dead. Pretty much every fantasy city, town and village has such, and they have a great promise of adventure: Necromancers looking for bodies, haunts with unfinished business, buried treasures and even a whole unholy domain, especially at night time – as Necropolis and it's Dark Reliquary in Ptolus.
Sometimes, just a small hint is enough to give players image of what's going on and give them the right feel. And perhaps help everyone remember some environmental modifiers too. This is true with the torch & light markers I made years ago, in addition to helping to remember that characters can't see everything out there.
As I mentined in my post showing various terrain tiles/components, I bought Black Scroll Games' castle tiles some time ago. While the tiles look outstanding, putting castle setups with corridors was a bit clumsy. BSG's video suggests using tape, but drawing and cutting tape isn't very handy thing to do in the middle of a game.
*Sorry for Finnish post – this is about selling/trading prepainted miniatures and some other stuff and I prefer to trade locally!*
Nonni. Aiemmin olen vaihdellut tavaraa Maxminisillä, Wizardsin foorumeilla ja Mahasamatmanilla, mutta näitä ei ole enää olemassa. Päätinpä siis laittaa listaa hakukoneiden ja satunnaisten kulkijoiden nähtäville.
Olen jo jonkin aikaa miettinyt, missä Suomesta voisi ostaa/myydä/vaihtaa muoviminiatyyrejä. Facebookin figukirppis on yksi paikka, mutta harvemmin siellä näkyy muoviminiatyyri -ihmisiä. Vastaava ilmoitus on kyllä sielläkin.
For some time, I've been looking at Future Armada's Invictus with a curious eye, but I haven't had actual need for it. A few days ago I run a session of Babylon 5 and went to check what DriveThruRpg has to offer. I had been looking at High Space's Euphoria as I was planning to use it's setting Lantern as a base for the game.
Edit: Ok, Reaper's deal was even better I remembered... as it rose up to have an enormous amount of participants. But I believe this is still a good deal, and road-opener for PPM kickstarter projects!
Are you a prepainted miniatures fan? Do you run a sea -themed fantasy/historical game?
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.
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.
