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.

wyvern: I've found Photos loading the first image slowly every time I've switched on the computer in recent times. It's been OK after that, but seems like it can't quite remember how to do it just after it's been woken up...

surfduke: Do you want a preview pdf of the Jupiter 2 here? If so how do I post it.

Vermin King: That would explain why 'Photos' loaded slower this weekend. It was 'improved'

wyvern: It wasn't some fresh Windows "improvement" then... I noticed the icon for the MS image viewer, "Photos", changed a few days back as well. Doesn't seem to have changed the app, as far as I can tell. Yet.

lightning: Glad that only a restart was involved. I wouldn't have the energy to much more today :-)

Vermin King: I had a scare and a half. Went to open a pdf for the first time today and nothing happened. Checked All Programs and saw that Reader updated on 05/23. Restarting fixed it. Whew

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!
May 13, 2020 4:10:32 GMT -9
shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
