Local Campaign: Village Building Gallery

Added a gallery for the Village of Rake’s Corner that I am making for my local campaign.   I will add future builds to this as I complete them and get images taken.

Most the buildings are and will be from Dave Graffam Models, but there will be a few from other sources (Fat Dragon, Lord ZseZse, Mystic Mountain Productions, etc).

Reaper Miniatures – Bones 4 Kickstarter

For those interested in figures, BONES 4 KICKSTARTER.   Get many, many figuures for the base cost of a $100 pledge.    Going to check when my next couple paychecks fall and maybe sign myself up for this one.  Lord knows I really do not need more figures, buuuuut…why not?

 

At last….customizable figures!

UPDATED 7/11/2017 – The Hand of Glory Kickstarter is LIVE!

I pledged for the early-bird Legendary within 5 mins of getting the email notification on my phone and 50 had already pledged.  By the time I completed my pledge, I was #71 of 100 to pledge that package.    It is already fully-funded and into the ‘unlocking goals’ stage!

Take a look at this…Hand of Glory Miniatures!    No more finding the figure that looks just right, but has the wrong weapon or shield.    Hand of Glory plans a Kickstarter for a line of figures with weapons/shields held on by magnets.   So you can swap out the weapons easily, rather than major modifications to a figure.   Brilliant idea!

 

The Village of Rake’s Corner (In-Progress)

So far, finished half the map on foamcore board.   Need to do the other side of the river, then on to a ton of buildings.  May wall it in, not decided yet, and am considering using a couple the shore tiles from Fat Dragon along with their port module to make an add-on for a river / lake / coastal village.

Tossing around ideas…

I have a ton of paper models of buildings, mostly Fat Dragon games but also a fair number of Dave Graffam Models.   Thinking of taking the DG ‘Rake’s Corner’ buildings, printing ground tiles and making a permanent village setup about the size of 1-2 pieces of foamcore board.   Kinda torn between making buildings permanently attached to the ground or just using something to temporarily stick them in place.   Anyone out there know of something that would stick two laser printed cardstock parts together enough to prevent sliding if bumped, but not tear up the printed surface?

Also thinking of taking the Fat Dragon Games Cemetery and making a more permanent installation.  That is, the walls, gate and gravestones stay attached, but masoleums, chapels and other buildings can be rearranged to allow customization without requiring major upfront setup of the individual tombstones.

Suggestions? Comments?  Anyone out there done something similar and how did it work out?

 

Carts and More Carts

My party is actually THINKING of ways to streamline adventuring.   To cut back on trips to town and enable them to use items they know are magic faster, they hired a sage (weekly salary plus a set cost/item).  Makes a good gold sink.  With that, they hired two guards….and where to put the hirelings?   Bought an enclosed Wagon!

More from the Social Justice Warriors ruining RPG’s…

Dragons Are for White Kids with Money: On the Friction of Geekdom and Race really speaks to the level of idiocy in the Social Justice Warrior movement that seems to be infecting role-playing of late.    Here’s a few select cuts…

More dice..there are never enough!

More dice for my collection.  They reopened the kickstarter due to popular demand, so I snagged myself the Blue Elder Sign set. 

Elder Dice Kickstarter

Thinking of seeing if it will let me add the red Cthulhu set in pledge manager. 🙂   Not sure on the ETA of these.

Also, ordered the Brimstone with Sulfur set of these dice.  ETA on these is June.

PolyHero – Wizard Set Kickstarter

Updated Top Secret RPG

The original spy/espionage RPG from TSR hasn’t aged well.   Soviets are gone as the primary ‘enemy’ and China and Islamic Terrorists have ascended.   But it seems the original author is redoing the game for our current times.   I just hope its a background update and they do not screw it up by rewriting the entire game system.
