Got myself a copy of the rules.
They are kind of D&D lite.
Here is a character sheet.
Limited stats, limited skills, all very straightforward.
Charlotte wants to play a fantasy tabletop game where she can level up and kill monsters.
This looks ideal.
This weekend I shall be generating her PC and persuading Samantha to join in.
Then to source some figures (15mm to make use of my current models) and huzzah!
OSR type stuff.23/05/2019 at 11:49 #115094
Will you be doing D&D-flavoured fantasy then? Elves and goblins and such?23/05/2019 at 11:50 #11509523/05/2019 at 11:55 #115096
You don’t corrupt easily, but finally we’re getting somewhere23/05/2019 at 12:09 #11509823/05/2019 at 12:14 #11509923/05/2019 at 15:01 #115106
Amazing how things fall into place sometimes!

Just made a few quick and easy dungeon tiles, gives some variety.
Each square fits a 15mm figure.
Now to slap some paint on.
Please note that this will be very much cheap and cheerful a31/05/2019 at 20:20 #115633
Alternating squares in the hallways, you madman!!

Those stagered tiles are my favorite alternative to hexes.
Tired is enough.04/06/2019 at 20:16 #115842
Turns out if you don’t bother with blending and so on, you can paint 9 figures in the time it takes to normally do 2.
Of course they are rougher and cruder, but hey, it is just a paint em so we can play em kinda game:
Looks like my matt varnish is not.04/06/2019 at 20:37 #115843
That’s basically my painting standard right there. Your figures would have to be much rougher and cruder than that for me to describe them by those words.04/06/2019 at 21:43 #115850
This looks interesting. Might look to have a dabble me thinks.
That’s how I paint. “Paint and game”. Although those minis look quite good for a quick job. How did you do em? Prime, block paint and ink wash? But you do use inks.
Have you ever seen those Army Painter booklets which you get with their paint sets. Basically those are the techniques which I try and do. That’s why I like the Quickshade stuff, especially the oil based one. Makes up for my crap painting. You just tosh it on and go! Does exactly what’s it says on the tin. Well, maybe not those words exactly but you know what I mean.05/06/2019 at 08:37 #115855

I try to avoid inks for the Crom’s Anvil stuff.
These however, slap on the base colour, then brown wash all over, then use the same base colour to ‘highlight’ job done.
Alas the ‘matt’ varnish has obliterated the slight highlights and shading there is.05/06/2019 at 14:49 #115874
You know, I have noticed lately that both the Testors Dull Coat and Modelmaster Flat coat sprays seem thicker than they used to. Several models that I have done extensive airbrush shading have ended up looking monotone after spraying the matte varnish. Is it just me? Or is it maybe due to putting an enamel spray on acrylic paint? Maybe that is part of the issue, Mike?

So we played a game today, it was Charlotte and Samantha’s first go at anything close to RolePlayish.
They both enjoyed it and want to do it again.
I used figures and my tiles and what not to help them visualise what is going on, however going forwards we will not bother using them again, or figures ofr that matter.
This will mean less expense for me, more games for them and probably no more posts in here as it will be miniature free!12/06/2019 at 20:21 #116243
Great news on the fun had! I’ve been poking at SWMBO to do some gaming and she has yet to agree. Bummer on no more posts. Not even in an RPG subsection?
