Pimp My Board Game

a pursuit of fruitless endeavors and endless refinements

Additional Scenery

I hit a snag with my Test of Honour board in that I couldn’t find all the ingredients to make my own wash locally.  They are now on order but I can’t do much until that package comes in.  I do have some scenery terrain I’d been meaning to paint up and now was as good a time as any.

The Gang Is All Here

So with Tog suiting up, I needed to get the rest of my team in order.  Our group decided to go easy on the first few Frostgrave sessions so we’re only pulling from the core rulebook.  My original warband had a Captain but those don’t appear until later so I came up with a different group.

Always Two There Are; No More, No Less

A master and an apprentice.  We’re going to focus on that apprentice today.  His name is Tog and he seemed very un-apprentice looking in my Frostgrave Warband.  When we last left him oh so many months ago, he was based a little and still very “master of hunt.”

Leviathans

As part of my kitbashing experiment, I ordered up a couple of Dropzone Commander Leviathan hovercrafts to customize into some wacky new additions for the Resistance faction. As fate would have it, they came in and I was able to check out Mortal Engines in theaters.  Sounds like the perfect time to start my custom rig.

Board Textures

With the nicer weather this week, I was able to get a little bit more done on my Test of Honour board.  First, I finished up the leveling I was doing for the dojo placement and then I laid everything out to see the progress.

Challenging Year

With 2018 coming to a close, I’m taking a look at my yearly challenges and, well, they don’t look good.  The first one where I try to get through 100 games of a single game is going to fall woefully short.  I’ll dive into the whys and wherefores after year’s end but getting more games of Walking Dead in before the end of the year won’t happen so even though it was abandoned long ago, I’ll officially admit defeat.

Sweeping Terrain

Over the weekend, I had the chance to start up another terrain project I’ve been thinking about.  This time, it is a large 2′ x 2′ board for my Test of Honour set. I picked up large piece of 8′ x 2′ x 2 inch insulation foam with the intent of making something altogether different but that quickly didn’t pan out.  Switching gears, I decided to try my hand at a full gaming board instead.

Origins And Inspirations

I was flipping through some links earlier this week and something caught my eye.  I saw that Ferti and the US distributor, Eagle-Gryphon Games are making a new expansion to their dexterity game, Pitchcar. Curiously, they are going through kickstarter to fund it, which looks like a first for Ferti.  Pitchcar expansions are all well and good but I was particularly struck by a particular add-on.

Expanding Terrain Options

When the weather was a bit warmer, I played around with an idea I came across using expanding foam.  Andrew Pieper posted a how-to on making terrain hills from expanding foam insulation spray and it looked easy enough so I decided to give it a go.

Dropzone Kitbashing

The folks over at TTCombat have launched a kitbashing contest this winter on their Facebook page (you’ll need to be a member of their group for that link to work). The concept sounds fun and since I’ve been messing around with Dropzone so much, I’d take a stab at the contest as well.
