Thought I should put in a quick mention of my latest project, a hex-based boardgame kinda thing called 'Martian Zombies' with a retro 50s B-Grade SF movie feel... It's not to any real scale or anything... Here are some of the hexes:
...only the fancy ones anyway, there are a lot of different corridor hexes.

The game will have minis, but I have not done fronts and backs since facing is unimportant to the rules. They just have fronts on both sides. The game will hopefully undergo it's first play tests on saturday. I've just printed and cut out a set of hexes, and will be doing the figures this evening. I'm considering putting this on RPGNow when complete, along with Grolg's Feast (which is a much more epic project - I did all of the rules and design for ZM in five days)

No playtest yesterday, I'd forgotten my club was hosting a tournament, so everyone was busy. I have been developing solo play which is a simnple modification of the rules and tweaking the combat system a bit.

As a result of play testing today, slight modifications have been made to the rules for the Damage Control and Enivronmental Support rooms. And ideas have been discussed for an expansion - things which looks like they'll be cool, but I do not want to be part of the core game - want to keep it simple to start with. It's almost ready now...

Martian Zombies has been playtested again today with the result that I have decided against integrating a tweak I was considering - it made the survivors way too powerful. I expect it'll be ready to publish this week.

I've added an article on how to build your Martian Zombies set to my blog.(that's a link. It seems to be a stealth link and camoflagued to match the rest of the text...) be warned: may contain traces of zombie hippos.
cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos
Feb 26, 2019 12:27:26 GMT -9
Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us
Feb 8, 2019 18:40:48 GMT -9
ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
