Cheap terrain !

Welcome once again to my wasteland. Now then... My mind has been into Frostgrave for some time and I miss the post apocalypse universe a bit. And as I was sitting and thinking up ideas for underround terrain in Frostgrave... Well... It could be quite usefull in Post apoc games as well.

The above photo is from WWII and shows a bombed out part of a city. Much what I think a post apoc wil look like too. Sure there will be some buildings that are mostly intact, but some parts will not. 

White foam (correct name in english has escaped me. not quite isolation foam) A foam cutter, paint and a girlfriend willing to help out. This really did not take any time and was dirt cheap. I already had the foam.

 Alot of the paint on this is Lone, my girlfriend who did this. I was the cutter and master builder.

  The mat is fantastic! And you can get it from URBANMATZ  
Mousemat material which is water repellant. I like it a lot, also the clatter of dice is much more quite. Check them out as they have mats in sizes from 3x3 to 4x6. Plus a LOAD of designs!

I will likely use it in Frostgrave too, but you can be sure these ruins will see action in games of ACROSS THE DEAD EARTH . Many of the miniatures in the folowing pictures are from that game. Fast paced and fun, easy to learn game.

 The last 2 miniatures seen here are from EM4 miniatures. I would use a lot more scatter terrain if it were a real game. This has just been set up in under 5 minutes to show it of. And that is the beauty of it. Scatter terrain in a box. Mat rolls up nicely and the ruins packs quite nicely flat in a box. Minimal storage.

Go for it yourself. The gaming board looks sooo much better with some terrain on it. Not just a Mountain Dew can as a watchtower and 2 books as a hill. And paint your miniatures...They fight better (mostly). Which reminds me...I have 2 gangs from Across the dead earth which I have yet to paint.... Whoops....

Take care out there

Winners and update

There were a lot of great names for the battle snail! And I do hope that some of you backed the project to get hold of one yourself? I had a hard time trying to decide...So I did not. I asked Lone (My beautifull girlfriend) to pick 2 she found funny.

Carl Packham and his Snailey McSlimetrail
Ian Riley and his trusty Shelly the Slug.

Congratulations guys. Get in touch via to get your prize.
And the rest of you go check out WASTEMAN to get hold of some awesome miniatures too!

 This is Vera, our 10 year old pug. Loving and sweet. She was in surgery last week. A smal puncture in her right eye. And she had her eye sewn shut. We are going to the vets later today to get the stitches out and hopefully check that everything is okay.

 My computer is really acting up. Not sure if it "just" needs a good cleaning of the insides or it is turning into a zombie. But it is the main reason that I could not post this on Sunday.

Trouble in Z town

Just like all we painters have tasted paintwater, or cleaned our brush in a cup of coffee. Sigh... Though with my current set up it has really helped!

Using my tablet more and more as my pc is breathing its last I fear. Also the reason why my blogposts have been erratic. Sorry about that guys/gals/stalkers. I have some stuff to sort through and show you. In this post my Frostgrave warband has been updated. In the coming blogposts I intend to give of some survival tips from days gone by. And a competition where you can win miniatures from WASTEMAN .

Top left 2x thieves, marksman, tracker, aprentice, 2x minor demons. Next row, major demon, barbarian, treasure hunter, infantry man, dog and 2 imps. 4 treasure tokens and at the front my summoner. He is currently level 6.

As mentioned there will be a competition soon from Wasteman/Thunderchild miniatures. Kindly donated by Jason who i the madman behind Thunderchild. Watch this space!
 And now I wish to show you the main reason that I do not get much painting done, well besides work, sleeping and that stuff.....

 Take care out there in the real world

Ak ak aak! (And I won a competition)

I got hold of a really good deal on the game MARS ATTACK  by Mantic games. The core set, neopren mat and some expansions. Well...What more was there to say but AK AK AAAK AK!

 Got it Friday evening. Meant to paint it Saturday evening. Denied! I have 3 good brushes, and some busted up ones. All 3 decided to quit on me at the same time! DAMMIT! So no speedpainting...

That would not stop us the slightest from getting a game on. Lone is not a gamer, but this could be one that she would try.

 And it was fun! Now I just need to get it painted. I am thinking I actually have some city debris in my boxes from my poast apoc collection. Should fit in nicely. Ready for the next games! (First game she beat my ass! Second game I got revenge. So we are tied now.)

 I won a competition on Facebook! Woohoo! And this was my price, a cool miniature from Code Orange Games. Cheers guys. This wil get some attention as I get hold of new brushes!

Start your engines!

Picture above is from MAD MAX FURY ROAD, as you may already know. And now is the time for me to delve back in the future of post apocalyptica!

I will still  be gaming Frostgrave and the likes but now is the time to mod and paint some cars. I got in on the Kickstarter ROUTE 666 DEVILS RUN. And absolutely love the miniatures. Nitroes, oilslick, ramming and shooting! WARBOYS!!!

The white ones are from the game, the grey bikes and stuff is from Ramshackle games. They match up nicely with Matchbox cars, so after a couple fleamarkets...I have some cool wheels to customise!

Not to mention that I need to paint them and....Actually sit down and have a good read of the rules. I have uptill now just skimmed them and like what I see. But as so often with me..Oooh butterfly! You are a pretty one! Erm....What were we talking about?

True horror master

Only fitting that as a small tribute I use a model of Freddy Krueger to lead my army of nightmares, the NIGHTSTALKERS. Close to getting an army ready to do battle. I found some miniatures from different races and they will make up my unit of Doppelgangers. 
And now for a different project. I work in mens wear and I have a soft spot for cufflinks. Really restraining myself from just buying a bunch as I have amble opportunity to do so. However I have a couple lying around. Only fitting to get them displayed. So on I went:
I think it worked out pretty good. Now there is room for more cufflinks! Hooray!
Da gobbo grotto has recieved the price (waterfountain) and is currently painting it. Looking forward to the result. And remeber the code zombie10 when you order from HORIZON3D as it wil give you a 10% discount.
It is currently raining here in Denmark, which is normal summer here. So I think I will be trying to get more organized in the geek corner here. That should take the better part of this sunday!
