Thanks, everyone, there are some thought-provoking ideas here. I think I’ll look into RUBs and Sally 4th, although Australian shipping will be a pain.
For those who have built internal trays for, say, A4 box files, how did you go about it?
Thanks for that! I think the Edo museum is currently closed, unfortunately. Looking forwards to this trip
It’s a bit rubbish. If you post it to me I’ll take it off your hands…
I like a bit of Cold War. I’ll go 15mm, but 6mm or smaller is really cool.
Thanks, Norm; thanks, William. I can see this being a fun ongoing project for me as the range expands.
Han and Chewie. I used a thin black wash over Chewie’s upper body, thighs, and the top of his head, which really added to this figure.
Great stuff! The setting sun adds that final touch of atmosphere.
Last batch- the rebels.
These were fun to paint. I’m really happy with the lightsaber:
Thanks! But how they look and how I roll are two very different things…20/02/2015 at 09:21 in reply to: A NEIS AAR without a decent title but a bunch of pictures. #18021
I’m leaning towards #1. I find I get rules fatigue, having to learn all these new sets.
Great examples of #1 include the Commands and Colors series and Ganesha Games.
Blended, based on films more than games. I can mash a bit of District 9, Mad Max, Blade Runner, Firefly, Aliens, etc into a coherent universe fairly easily. Central core system of bureaucracy, dystopian cities, and megacorporations, and outer rim planets of pioneers, rogue traders, and outlaws.
Eureka, Peter Pig, QRF. Eureka is slightly slighter, but I wouldn’t hesitate to use them together
I suppose I’ll mix and match a few. Thanks for the advice!
Big fun with little men? No, maybe not…
Serious fun with toy soldiers.
Make sure its something they’re interested in.
Keep it simple- more advanced rules can be added later.
Let them win/ have fun/ don’t smash them.
Boardgames are great gateway games. Checkout boardgamegeek for threads on suggestions for beginners.
Good suggestions,all….wash and a highlite,then…..I do think the smaller the scale, the more subtle the camo
Subtle camouflage tends to turn into a muddy indistinguishable blur…
I agree with the consensus- dark wash, pale drybrush. Do some test runs on some of the very cool and cheap diecast cars as well.
What style of cam do you want to emulate? Pea-dot, digicam, woodland, etc?
In 15mm, it is all about the contrast. ‘Realistic’ is where you end up as a blurry mess.
My generic simple cam is a mid-tone all over, with a considerably lighter tone then a considerably darker tone painted as slightly overlapping horizontal ‘Y’s or ‘V’s, if that makes sense.
Green/ tan/ brown
Grey/ white/ blue
Orange/ yellow/ brown
Tan/ cream/ brown
Examples of different camo styles from my blog:
It decreases shine; not as much as Testors Dullcote (in my opinion). I can’t compare it to AP spray, sorry.
