Stroezie and FĂŠ do Rangers of Shadowdeep.

Now that I've finally got some free time again I've decided to start a game with my 10 year old daughter.

She regularly plays boardgames with us and enjoys things like Zombieside and Mice and Mystics so I think she should have no problem with a co-op miniatures game.

As she really likes the story element of these games I wanted something with a simple but sturdy camaign system

So, after shopping around a bit, I decided we'll give Rangers of Shadowdeep a try.
I have just recieved the print on demand copy of the rules and we'll be statting out our rangers and their companions over the next week.

I'll do my best to share some in game pictures with maybe a broad overview of what happened but don't expect to much because I still suck at AAR's.

Ok, that's enough chatter for now on with the pictures!!!

So first up our as yet unnamed rangers

Some possible companions and npc's (?)

And the first of my own sculpts for this project...

The painted spider was a proof of concept and now I can get on with the sculpting of the rest of the giant spiders we'll need for scenario 2.

And lastly a sneek peak at the setup for the first scenario.

Well that's it for now.

A Whole Year of Nothing and Now This ?!?

What can I say? 
First life got in the way and then lately I've been rpging and dabbling in the larger scales more and more again.
I still have plans for some 6mm projects in the future (still waiting for some kickstarters to arrive) but for the moment I'm mainly doing 15mm fantasy so I had to ask myself do I start a different blogg and let Planet Ares VI linger untill such time as I return to 6mm once more or do I just accept the fact that my interests have broadened again and have this blogg evolve with me.
Personally I'm not to fond of bloggs with low traffic and so I have decided to go with the latter figuring if people are at all interested in my hobby projects, they'll be interested regardless of the scale they are in and if some are not, you can always ignore the larger stuff.( I'll make sure to add a 6mm, 15mm and maybe even 28mm size tag to the labels for easy reference)
Cheers and welcome back everyone,

Micromunda Scatter Terain

I have been told Necromunda needs lots of stuff for gangers to hide behind.
Ok then lets build some scatter terrain 😎 

I started with a classic to get me going,
everybody has done the stack of pipes, quick and easy linear terrain what's not to like?
Next were a set of crates and canisters on pallets from Angel Barracks which I magnetised and put on some magnetic paper disks so they can be used as both scatter terain and loot counters.
The last items in this picture are a form of fungus that explodes when fired upon ideal for placing next to the previous loot counters.😈

Then I decided to recycle some of the offcuts littering my workstation into some rubble baricades.

For some reason only the Emperor knows tyres and cogs are stacked together in the underhive, but I thought it looked cool so...
The other items in this pic are my take on the ubiquitous Necromunda air vents.
Lots of fun/superglued fingers making these.

 And lastly some slime pits to make running across those walkways a more interesting choice.
Oh and I almost forgot, I made two hills/risers, one of which you can see below to. The sides are also magnitic and the ladders are removable. I will be making some other stuff like stairs, ramps, terminals and junction boxes to attach to them to.

As you can see the board is filling up nicely

I have read through the Necromunda rules and have started reading Inquisimunda to.
I think once I've played a few games of Necromunda and gotten the hang of the rules I'll probably be expanding to Inquisimundan simply because there are so many cool minis out there and knowing myself it won't be long before I start looking at ways to bring them into my games.

So next on my to do list:
First make some measuring sticks, because at the reduced scale I'm going to be playing one unit of movement is 7mm so 28mm base move, thats a little finnicky to use a normal tape measure don't you think.
Then templates, again at the reduced scale, don't know if I'm just going to print them out on card or try something a bit more fancy, we'll see.
And of course, stat out my two gangs so we can start to rumble!!!
