Pimp My Board Game

a pursuit of fruitless endeavors and endless refinements

Storing Blood Rage

Last week I hinted at the storage issues that come with Blood Rage and I’ve been working on taming the plastic coming from that collection. I know that several professional manufacturers offer kits for storing the game all in one box but with the 3D Printer, I figured I could work it out on my own.

End Of The Era (Boards)

I had already done some work on my boards for Era: Medieval Age by creating custom peg boards for the buildings. I had even done work to liven up the drab yellow boards but only with one. I wanted to try something different and easier so I took out the last three boards and got to work.

The Time Of Fire & Axe Is Nigh

I dusted off an older game from my shelf as my group was looking for games to play this past weekend. While we ultimately tried something else, bringing out Fire & Axe again reminded me that there was something I wanted to pimp out in this game.

Castle Building

With the printer still going, wanted to explore some additional terrain for Test of Honour. I’d picked up some small terrain lanterns from 3DAlienWorlds last year and was looking through their catalog when I came across a set of walls and corner castle options. Putting the two options together creates some pretty interesting large feature terrain options.

Back Again

With January gone, I thought it was high time I jumped back in. A hard drive meltdown took the wind out of my sails for a bit with the loss of several things I was working on but I’m back now and will soldier on.

I’ve been up to a few things during the downtime and I’ll be showing them off as I get them finalized.

One of the bigger items is jumping back into X-wing.

Operation: Last Train Day 1

To end out this 2019, I decided to post my first Operation: Last Train report. Though I’ve been mostly cobbling together existing miniatures to get this game going, it still took a while for me to get it to the table.

Frostgrave: War On Christmas

With the holiday season mere moments away from its major event, we decided to get together and throw a festive-inspired Frostgrave game. Sean had the main idea and so he and I tag-teamed with him picking up a centerpiece for the terrain and I would grab some minis to serve as our treasure-seeking foils. The war on Christmas has begun.

Sh*t My Rule Book Says

It’s been a couple of months since I last played some disappointing games of Dropzone Commander and I don’t think stewing in frustration will do any one any good so I’ve decided to take another path. No game, no matter how well designed, is flawless. In Simulation games especially, this can lead to some pretty funny interactions.

I’ve decided to illustrate some of these situations in Dropzone Commander through some new photographs. It was a lot of fun creating these scenes and, if nothing else, I hope you enjoy them. Big thanks to Colton for loaning me some of his fantastic UCM, Scourge, and Shaltari models.

Walking Dead Wednesday: More Inking

With the Thanksgiving Holiday came a much needed break. Things are still pretty hectic but I’ve still been able to work on some projects. Mainly, more of my Inked re-theme of The Walking Dead Here’s Negan board game. Having gotten the figures mostly complete, I’ve run into the same issue I usually have with these ventures: terrain.
