The beautiful Innsmouth setting from OldBen 1 spurred me on to build my own version, but for 28mm figures. Except for the church, everything is scratch built from XPS foam, plastic and cardboard. The Gilman House hotel is directly inspired by OldBen 1’s build. Have yet to decide on a scenario or ruleset, but I’m favouring Fear and Faith from Ganesha Games. The police, soldiers and Government troops are visible but the townspeople, both good and bad, have not been placed yet.
Edit: just noticed the bridge is a resin model and the right most boat is an MDF kit. (Helps to look at your own photo)23/03/2022 at 18:52 #170402Andrew BeasleyParticipant
Stunning!23/03/2022 at 19:14 #170403MikeKeymaster23/03/2022 at 19:51 #170405Shaun TraversParticipant
That looks amazing!
I have Fear and Faith but not played it. It reads like it would be a good ruleset to play this sort of thing.23/03/2022 at 20:25 #170406OldBen1Participant
Wow, this must be a huge board. I am very impressed! I especially like the harbor and all the boats! We need to see more pictures. Great stuff!
I miss my 28mm Innsmouth board terribly.23/03/2022 at 20:29 #170407willzParticipant
Lovely modelling.23/03/2022 at 23:28 #170413
This will ultimately be a convention game. Fear and Faith is a simple ruleset and will work perfectly in this context. Especially for players with no previous experience in this game.24/03/2022 at 05:55 #170419Jim WebsterParticipant
It does look good

Very nice, it will add so much atmosphere to the games played on it25/03/2022 at 15:10 #170515JozisTinManParticipant
Wow, I mean just wow. That is beautiful, I cannot wait to see pictures of it in action.

Wow, this must be a huge board.
Not really, at least by 28mm standards. The gaming area is 3′ X 4′ including the vinyl sheet that is supposed to be the water.
Still working on a usable scenario. The Government Agents, Soldiers and Police are arriving by boat during a foggy day. The clear figures are male and female “ghost” markers. They are 3D printed with clear resin. They represent the townsfolk that are as of yet unidentifiable to the government forces. Once you get to a certain distance you recognize the identity of the figure. The “ghost” marker is removed and a proper towns person is put in it’s place. This could be a hostile fish man or woman, or a hostile human member of the Church of Dagon, or a civilian that needs rescuing. Even the belligerent figures are supposed to be captured for further study, but that may not happen that often.
And that’s as far as I’ve thought for now. Thanks for all the kind words.29/03/2022 at 16:50 #170629OldBen1Participant
This is going to be so great! I like the ghost marker ideas too. You could even have hot zones where fish man spawn like in Zona Alfa. Please continue to post!30/03/2022 at 08:21 #170640Cacique CaribeParticipant
Wow, Bowman, nice terrain!

The ghost markers is a nice idea

Hey Dan, good to hear from you.
Ralph31/03/2022 at 05:20 #170690Cacique CaribeParticipant
You too! And so good to see you staying busy in the hobby.
I know that this pandemic can drive anyone crazy, specially without some therapeutic hobby to keep us refreshed and centered. So I see our hobby as vital. Keep on keeping on, my friend.

Agreed, Dan. I’ve also enjoyed following your WIPs.
