Funland Food Stalls

The final pieces for my pulp carnival is ready; two food stalls from Red Beam Designs (that is sold off to Warcradle Studios).
MDF and cardboard buildings that goes together really well and paint up just as good.
The Carnival is set up for a game of Pulp Alley. More on that game soon.

Crowdfunding Watch – 3D-printing – 4 new terrain kickstarters

Here's the latest crop of 3D-printing kickstarters.
The title doesn’t say it all, as this kickstarter doesn’t stop with an outpost, there is also a tile system and very neat stackable buildings.
My favourite of this set is without doubt the stackable buildings, where I see a ton of uses. A great concept where you build floor after floor and connect it together to get truly individual buildings. Fantastic stuff!
I think the campaign would benefit if there was a possibility to back just one part instead of going all-in.
This KS ends on May 30, 2018

Here we have scans of physical models turned into files for your printer.
It’s a diverse set of buildings, trees and whatnot.
A nice concept and some very useful pieces of terrain.
This KS ends on May 18, 2018

Trees, rocks and ruins, by themselves or as a bundle.
The ruins are my favourites. They look really good and you can never have too many ruins.
If you choose the bundle you’ll get a great looking ruined tower. Really nice!
This KS ends on May 27, 2018

Finally a very affordable micro-campaign.
A bunch of tomb-stones, either as stl-files or as physical objects.
This KS ends on May 10, 2018.

Circus stands and wagons

More stuff for the pulp carnival from Plast Craft Games and their Malifaux range.
These two booths are from the Circus Stand Set.
Four wagons from the Circus Wagon Set.
All sets are prepainted made from PVC and go together easily with superglue. They could be used as is but that will leave very prominent white edges, so I camouflaged those with appropriate paints. Worked rather well, I think, especially if you are half a meter off during a game.
The backs of the printed parts are also stark white, and where necessary, inside the booths and at the back of the wagon ornaments, I gave those some paint to make them blend in better.
Comparison between Sarissa's Gypsy Caravan and Circus Wagon
Nice pieces, but a bit large, especially the booths.

Caravans from Sarissa

The Circus/Carnival nears completion (well, it will obviously never be complete, but it nears playability) with these two wagons, a Ledge Type Gypsy Caravan and a Bow Top Gypsy Caravan from Sarissa’s Gaslamp Alley range.
Both are MDF and cardboard sets and goes together really well.
Really like them. I’ve got rather fond of Sarissa’s kits, as they have yet to disappoint me.
Fun to paint in all these garish colours, but I will soon go back to my Vikings and dull, dull, dull J

April – Miniatures Tally

April has been a rather quiet month. Dead quiet the first three weeks and then a modelling rush during the last one (as you might have noticed from the updates). A few minis painted, a few bought and nothing sold.
April summed up:
Total: - 12

I just bought one 1/72 scale gun and four 28mm pulp figures. They are still in the mail, but I look forward to them, as at least two of the figures will hit the painting table fast. What are they, I hear you ask. Armed nuns!
Total: 5

Sold or given away:
Total: - 0

Bought:              64
Painted:            -55
Sale:              -129
Total:            - 120

SAGA: first Viking archers

I had a game of SAGA II at the club a while ago. Such a good game! So good, in fact, that I bought the rules and a Viking warband.
These are the first painted ones, half a unit of Levies from Gripping Beast, sculpted by Bob Naismith.
I used heads from another set to get some variability. The one to the right looks like an old veteran commanding the others.
I’m really concentrating on producing these as fast as possible and still enjoy painting them. So I just block paint and wash. Turned out well enough.

Rise of Moloch – Killer Clowns

These are really disturbing. What is it with clowns that make them so creepy? I mean, clowns are creepy as they are, but these… Yuck!
They are part of the evil faction in Rise of Moloch, obviously, and really well done. How can you not like killer midget clowns?
There are like five each of the normal ones and 10 of the stretch-goal cyclers. I will of course need them for the game, but also for my little Pulp carnival. I need lots there J
These first ones were fun to paint, as it isn’t every day I use all these gaudy colours. The rest will hit the painting table rather soon.
I guess this is what they usually do...
Great fun, these!
