Pimp My Board Game

a pursuit of fruitless endeavors and endless refinements

Photo Friday: Throne Room

With all the Game of Thrones fever going on, I decided to paint up my Song of Ice and Fire Iron Throne. This set piece from the Miniature game’s kickstarter is pretty much the ultimate in useless eye candy but I couldn’t help but pick up some more useless accessories and create a fun scene.

Photo Friday: War Torn

Ever since I made my burned out building for Dropzone Commander, I’d wanted to do a specific shot with some infantry inside the building. The image in my head was always this scene of a huddled squad, taking shelter in a destroyed building while the battle rages on around them. I’d been thinking about it for months and tried several test shots but could never get it right.

I tried it again this week but was getting nowhere. On a whim, I decided to flip the perspective where I’d shoot from within the building instead of trying to see the troops from the outside and the image just clicked.

That change in perspective made all the difference and instead of fighting the scene, I was able to compose it all to match more of what was in my head. The shot lighting was no more than some tea lights and cotton (easy fire/smoke markers) and a flashlight handheld at a high angle.

Photo Friday: Books, Check ’em Out

With my Frostgrave maze walls complete, I was still missing a major component to the library, namely, books. It might be disastrous to start this off in meme but here we go!

Photo Friday: Cold Light

Busy week this week so I was only able to mess around with one of the shots I made for the banner image. More Frostgrave fun for the week.

Photo Friday: Beast Mode

I know I’ve been obsessed with Frostgrave all week but after our first game, it has it’s hooks in me. Deep. So time to keep the ride going and highlight Therelin and her furry friends.

Photo Friday: So Much For The Glory Of Rome

We got in a game of Fire & Axe the other night and every time I play it, I just want to dive right back in. There is something about the theme (which I’ve been on a viking kick for some time now) and the slight abstract gameplay that just calls to me. I’ve resolved to pimp the game out as I enjoy it too much to sit there plain in its vanilla, factory-freshness. I need to put my mark on it so time to start brainstorming. For now I’ll just have to be content to capture it in light and shadow.

Photo Friday: Homage

My last Photo Friday focused on some art shots of Blood Rage miniatures and I hinted that there was both inspiration and purpose behind it. Today, I showcase what that was all about by emulating one of my favorite pieces of board game art, Vincent Dutrait’s Blood Rage poster from Boardgamegeek’s Artist Series #1.

Photo Friday: Blood Rage

A favorite game of mine recently had a revitalizing Kickstarter to enter the digital range. I’m not sure how well a digital port of the game will do but the Blood Rage Digital campaign also offered some physical extras as well. Even though no rewards have been delivered yet, I started thinking about this game again and decided to shoot some new images.

Photo Friday: Win, Place, or Show

February brings to end a few contests that I’ve entered and with it, the results of my labors. Boardgamegeek held it’s annual Picture of the Year contest and the folks in the Dropzone Commander Facebook group were busy with a contest showing off your own custom creations. Before we get to deep into the results, this Friday’s photo took advantage of some of the natural scenery found in my backyard.

Photo Friday: Inspirational Film

This Friday, I took an unused photo from my Test of Honour board image run and over-processed it with some Illustrator work.
