We have many more photos of the different layout / pledge levels and the terrain being tested at gaming conventions in our photo-realistic terrain gallery.
Buildings are finished by covering them with cover sheets that are based on photographs of real plaster, stone etc. These are emailed to you as a PDF file which can be printed on any inkjet or laser printer. The tiles for roofs are printed and then laid in overlapping strips to quickly and easily build up a realistic looking roof structure. All pieces are the exact shape and size needed, so once the shell is completed all that you need to do is print and cut out the cover shapes and glue them into position using PVA glue. This technique hides all MDF joints, so there is no way that you can tell that it as an MDF kit underneath and provides consistent results, so any model maker can complete a kit that looks exactly the same as the manufacturers photographs.
We finish off our buildings by coating them with hard wearing decoupage varnish that gives a very hard wearing surface. Once varnished buildings can be distressed by applying weathering powders."
If you are a Bolt Action player, like myself, then this is definitely a Kickstarter you should take a look at!
"Mask of the Pirate Queen also opens up two more planets in the Star Wars galaxy for you to explore. Today’s preview offers a glimpse of one of them: the galaxy’s most infamous shadowport, a haven for bounty hunters, smugglers, and all variety of criminals: Ord Mantell.
For centuries, Ord Mantell served the Republic as a regional depot, but gradually the planet’s strategic significance dwindled. Eventually, the Republic abandoned the military spaceports it had once constructed, leaving them to be occupied, controlled, and used by a number of criminal and corporate elements. Since that point, Ord Mantell’s link with the Republic has been tenuous. During the Clone Wars, it became home to Darth Maul’s Shadow Collective, and even now, under Imperial rule, the planet retains a good measure of autonomy.
As a celebration of its criminal heritage, Ord Mantell hosts the annual Blockade Runners’ Derby, a treacherous competition between smugglers and other thrill-seeking pilots. Prizes tend to take the form of lucrative and illegal business contracts, and more than one fortune has been lost through gambling on the race’s outcome. Many of the galaxy’s best and most notorious smugglers have competed in it. A certain Han Solo managed to win an unprecedented three times."
Due out December 31st is Keeping The Peace!
"You’ve moved objects with your mind, and leapt several meters in a single bound. You’ve secretly influenced the minds of other sentients and healed their wounds. You can even peer into the future. Maybe you’ve used these powers to make money, pilot a ship, find out secret information, or even just stay alive. Yet there is far more you can do. You can save the lives of others, battle oppression, change a village or planet for the better — even affect the future of the entire galaxy.
Those who take up the Guardian Career in the Star Wars®: Force and Destiny™ roleplaying game use their powers to make positive changes and fight for the lives of others at the risk of their own. The upcoming supplement Keeping the Peace offers these heroic individuals new specializations, talents, gear, and vehicles, so that they can better protect anyone in need. You can learn about the Guardian specializations of Keeping the Peace in the announcement for it.
Yet there’s more to being a Guardian than the Force powers you possess and the lightsaber you wield. Today’s preview takes a look at some of the epic Guardian stories that you might experience and how Keeping the Peace can help players and GMs create those stories together."
