    What Zippyfusenet and Victoria said. For me it’s a Venn diagram. I enjoy all aspects of research, history, painting, model and terrain building, playing, socializing, story telling and world building. Gaming Nirvana is when they all overlap.

    This.

    But I could only pick one, so I went with The World Building component. I’ve been working on my own Sci-Fi conflict on the first Human colony of Eden, and am thoroughly enjoying creating the different powers, their geography, and their TO&E.

    Well, if you can put that aside for a minute… Fallout 4 is fantastic, and well worth a look.

    It’s a bit more of a traditional FPS than Fallout 3, and a significant departure from the historical top down RPG of 1, 2 & Tactics.

    I don’t like Fallout (call myself a video gamer?)

    What? It is literally exactly what you’ve asked for, in your opening post

    There’s no pleasing some people

    I’m honestly surprised no-one has mentioned Fallout 4 yet!

    Seriously mate, you can pick it up for X-Box One for a steal (it’s 2 years old) and there’s plenty of DLC if you want (that adds flavour, but isn’t needed).

    It can be first, or third person. There’s a strong RPG element, with hours and hours of story options. There’s a base/settlement building mechanic, and several major factions you can choose to ally with, or wipe out.

    Nice work again sir. Those cardboard buildings are they meant as Ork dwellings?

    Flat cut clippers for me, usually does the job!

    Sometimes it takes some gentle application with a blade to flatten them off, but after a few ‘slips’ I’ve started using my dremel with a sanding head fixed to the bench.

    I was going to suggest the Brigade range, but they are solid resin.

    As an alternative, I’d suggest investing in a whole heap of sci-fi ‘widgets’ to decorate rooftops, making your existing Middle Eastern buildings appear futuristic.

    Things like:

    • Moisture traps
    • Satellite dishes
    • Landing pads
    • Flurescent signs (check out the various ‘made for Infinity’ ranges out there)

    These can be made on separate bases, and dropped in and around your buildings to easily change their tone, without making them unusable for historical scenarios.

    I feel like I have more of a connection to companies that are visible on forums and social media.

    But then on the flip side, there are a couple of companies that I have decided not to buy from based on their public interactions. I’ve been given the distinct impression that the owner is a ‘douche’, and I don’t have any need for their products. No matter how nice and shiny they are.

    I keep an eye on the period and it’s games, as it’s something I’m vaguely interested in…

    But then there are lots of periods I’m ‘vaguely interested’ in

    If/when I tip my toe into some Naval-Gazing, it’s more likely to be modern, WW2 at the earliest.

    The game is in the early playtesting stages; there have been a few photos and comments on the Ironfist Publishing Facebook page from the author and his gaming group.

    I’ve harassed the main author, Piers Brand, a number of times about a release date, and received variations of ‘when it’s ready’ πŸ˜›

    Wonder how the rules would shape up for 6mm?

    in reply to: Basing Q's for gamers playing WWII 6mm infantry #68432
    SplodSplod
    Participant

    What rules were you using which supported fire teams in sci fi?

    My forces were originally built for Dirtside II, where Infantry ‘elements’ are used. An element is generally equal to what is now a fireteam, with most APCs carrying 2 elements.

    More recently I’ve been playing Strike Legion, where Infantry squads are built up of ‘teams’, which translate nicely using my fireteam bases. But I’ve also used my Sci-Fi with Future War Commander, Tomorrow’s War, and my own rules; all of which can have infantry represented as fireteams.

    Are you adding the steel to the existing bases or re-basing?

    Little column A, little column B.

    I’m adding the steel sheet to the bottom of my Armour and other vehicles that are already based on the 30mm x 40mm bases. Some of my smaller vehicles such as scouts and APCs are on 20mm x 30mm bases, these will be re-based.

    Rather than re-base infantry, I’m starting again. Just putting together an order with H&R now for some of their new infantry. The old infantry stands are being phased into semi-retirement, only surfacing when I really need extra boots.

    I’m in the process of revising my infantry basing also. I have modern Middle East and Sci-Fi in 6mm.

    Traditionally, I’ve based 4-6 infantry on a 20mm x 30mm base, with infantry support weapons either on a 20mm or 30mm square base with 2 – 3 infantry. This has been gaming at a 1:1 scale, where each base has represented a Fireteam.

    The idea of higher level gaming where 1 base represents anything other than the actual number of troops represented, was anathema to me. But I’ve found that as I age (mature/become more jaded) the idea is becoming more and more enticing, to where I now commonly build projects on the basis of 1 base represents a platoon or even a company.

    I’m now basing my infantry platoons as if they were a full strength squad (8 – 12 figures) on the same bases as my MBT, 30mm x 40mm. This means that an Infantry company (3-4 bases) now takes the same table space as an Armoured Squadron (3-4 bases), and allows enough room for scenic items without making the base too crowded.

    I use 2mm MDF bases from Sarissa Precision for my 6mm collection, and am in the process of upgrading them to have flexible steel added to allow easy storage/transport on magnetic sheets.

    Well, I’ll get the ball rolling.

    I’m definitely keen, and would say my areas of ‘expertise’ are:

    • 20mm Moderns – Post World War 2
    • 6mm Moderns – Post World War 2
    • 6mm Sci-Fi
    • Space Ships
    • Terrain to go with above

    Looking fantastic guys!

    Sadly here in Australia it’s difficult to get access to printers without purchasing your own commercial grade printer. Here’s hoping they come down in price!
