WWII Combat Map 01

I am very pleased to announce the release of my first World (or Weird) War 2 themed map...

-front cover-

This map depicts a single encounter area that is suitable for use in most WWII style games, and comes in the following formats.
  • A pdf file containing a labelled version of the map and a miniatures scaled battlemap.
  • An unlabelled jpg file (for use with VTTs)
  • A PNG file with a transparent background.

-a scaled down version of the jpg file-

Combat Map 01 is available from RPGNow, DriveThruRPG, and WargameVault for just $1.99

One Mini Every Week #20

Another week, another mini...

...though I've been having some trouble photographing this one - as the 'matt' varnish has dried slightly shinier than usual :(

Anyway, like the other orcs I've been painting recently, this one is from Ral Partha Europe (part of the Armalion range), and I've still got a few of these guys left to paint - however I might just paint one more (i.e. a leader type) before moving on to something a little more interesting :)

One Mini Every Week #19

After last week's disaster (where everything I attempted to paint ended up in the paint stripper) I thought I would keep it simple this week, and slap some paint on another orc...

Once again, this mini is from Ral Partha Europe (or at least that's where you can get it in the UK) - and is part of the Armalion range ...which I'm particularly fond of :)

* * *

In addition to the above orc, I've also been trying to make a few bits of WWII (or weird war) scatter terrain from bits of junk...

...and these are my successful prototypes (note that the sandbags I attempted didn't work out at all) - and I'll be happy to post some step-by-step pics if folks are interested to learn how I made them.

And that's it for this week!

Mine Geomorph #9 (patreon funded)

Thanks to the guys supporting me over on Patreon, it's time for another little mine geomorph!

(note that all of these bonus geomorphs can also be found in THIS album over on google+)

One Mini Every Week #18

Unfortunately, this week's mini's didn't go according to plan - so I've failed to get anything painted this week ...as they're currently sitting in some paint stripper :(

Note that these are some WW2 commandos, as I'm currently toying with the idea of starting a new range of WW2 maps ...a prototype for which is pictured below:

Dungeon Monthly #41 (May 2016)

It's a new month ...and that must mean that it's time for another dungeon map:

I also have to admit that it's hard to believe that I'm almost half way through this year's project (how time flies) and that it's May already.

Anyway, as usual, my thanks go out to all the folks supporting the project over on Patreon (where you can tip a dollar or more - and spur me on to create even more of these maps), and I'll also point out that you can get unlabelled versions of all these maps in the following G+ albums:

One Mini Every Week #17

A slight departure from the norm for this week's project, as I've been making/painting some 10mm stuff for my 'travel GM's kit' :)

Most of the terrain was made from matchsticks, BBQ skewers, and grit/gravel/sand - though I've also used a couple of tiny beads to make the vase, and the bedding was just a bit of kitchen towel soaked in PVA glue.

 (miniatures are from pendraken and kallistra)

And I hope to use these pieces to add a bit of colour/flavour to a few of my geomorphs (that I've printed out at a suitable scale) which I'm planning on using for a few random(ish) encounter locations in a upcoming game.
