    It seemed really fast paced, how long did this take to play?
    Nice town you have there.

    Don’t ever say magic doesn’t exist, I’ve experienced similar things.

    Could make the various fighters move to different stations on the ship to sail it, example; to sail faster someone has to go unfurreled the sail and to board the enemy ship might need to close up the distance and someone to grapple the ship with the other side tries to cut the lines or maneuver away. I’m thinking expanding a single boarding roll in naval games into a whole mini game.

    Very impressive, nicely painted.
    I like the way you smudged the edges of the first photo, makes it seems like sand scattered on table.

    Interested in seeing this done.

    So the boats will always come together as that is what they would want, to fight, and then the battle just takes place on a more mobile battle field.

    Maybe a few rounds of firing arrows and bolt throwers before the boarding action.

    Wow, all this happened and resolved while I was sleeping.
    My first thought was, “That’s not right”, then I check the blog and saw the image and thougt I’d be glattered.
    Glad they took accountability for it and offered compensation.
    If I was religious I’d say god works in mysterious way, of all the days, all the shop and all the books you could have picked up.

    Man that looks good. The painting on the screen is really cool and that rubbled ruin is great.

    That little shuttle had always been my favorite, since seeing it in the render. Very nice smooth prints, very interested to see how well the two halves fit. I’ll be tempted to cut it horizontally and make interiors for the ships.

    I like the house with the stone foundation, a step up in engineering and sign of wealth. Maybe the houses could gradually incorporate more stone and arch next time you replace them.

    From what I remember Tamiya is more expensive. If you’re going after actual accurate colors, Vallejo Model colors is a good substitute. Not sure if others would agree with painting lighter than actual colors for 1/3000 ships. I’ve done accurate colors for WWII USN pattern and they look too dark, needing more highlight than usual.

    RN ships are light gray Harriers are dark gray.
    You can get Valejo color charts here and compare to photo references.

    Color charts

    If you’re not concerned about color accuracy then most other brands will work just fine.

    Interesting. There’s a lot of 15mm out there and you could add all sorts of weirdness considering the first movie.

    It’s 2019 and we still don’t have hover cars.

    Funny you should say that. While I was cropping the photos, I was a little sad, realizing for the first time I needed a magnifying glass to appreciate the minis.

    That’s a good looking game. I really like the cars and terrain. Overgrown vegetation really made it stand out.

    Nothing wrong with hexes in my opinion, it makes life so much easier.

    Back when I was a kid I liked everything clean, precise and symetrical. Now that I’ve seen a lot more of the world I apreciate the beauty in chaos and ruins. I prefer everything with some kind of flaw, there’s character and a story in there somewhere.

    I’m especially proud of the wolves and deers.

    Unfortunately my palette was dusty and only spotted the dust in these photos, it’s all sealed in with varnish now.

    I’m thinking scratch build some 1/72 bombs/fuel tanks, 1/1200 ship super structure and some WWII tank (British tanks like Matilda II) parts for side.

    GZG has some 15mm hoverbike and sled that might be a good base. The bridge is the most difficult I think.

    I saw a thing on youtube one time, it was probably on misconception with swords. It said around that period spears and axe were the thing. I also remember way back in history class, Battle of Hasting, something about double handed axe cleaving through the rider and the horse. For cavalry though I vote spears.

    Might have been from this channel, its the most recent one browsed.

    Update:
    Should be everything I need for 3mm. I’m having second thoughts about 6mm again. Will probably do more 6mm next, see if I can build up a similar set, although I could probably buy most animals somewhere.

    Interesting color scheme, somehow I think a tan/brown version would look perfect for the carpet or grey version for urban area. I like the blue too, very seascapy.

    Not chicken walkers but DP9’s jovian war minis might be a good size. In space pose though.
    By national cheese emporium, are you after the 3d printed stuff or metal cast only?

    Pretty sure that’s a 1″ base so most are around 1″ tall.

    Armorcast and Anvil Industry does muzzle flashes, also search ebay.

    http://anvilindustry.co.uk/index.php?route=product/search&search=flash

    Might also want to search shops with dungeon tiles they might have detail kits.
    I don’t think this fit the cheap category.
