Amazing piece of work, Quite speechless.....

Great reading how you went about this watery mammoth. Im glad you all survived the fumes. Worth it though for such a magnificently crafted and inspirational board.

In fact to call it a board is to do it a disservice. It is making me want to use a phrase from my youth that has not been uttered in most likely 15 years....

Its S**t Hot Very Happy

Hey Joao.

The more the merrier. I am from Poole but the waterfront action all happens over in Bournemouth. Wink

We can't very well accommodate greenskins in this setting but there are numerous roles could potentially be fulfilled.

Drop me a line.

Stuart

Hey Stuart,

That's brilliant! Thank you! I might be more available from February onwards.

You must be careful with me, though; I've been recently diagnosed with severe kleptomania, so be aware that I might "accidentally" steal some of your terrain... Twisted Evil

Speak to you soon,

Joao

If you go back to the very start of the thread, you will see a new picture of the gaming table...

A major picture update is actually about to appear on the Liber Malefic blog. I have added a couple of nice shots there tonight featuring a warband I have been collecting and painting over some time. They are particularly difficult customers for shopkeepers on the Riddra and Luydenhoek Isles to deal with! Wink

Update here

Here is a picture of some of the players in my gaming group. You might recognise one or two of the names.

Hang on a minute! I'm pretty sure I've seen The Who somewhere in Bournemouth - or Poole!

Marienburg looks gorgeous and I'm really looking forward to seeing more ogres (old and new). Very interesting article.

By the way, your family photo looks very professional.

Just worked my way through the whole post (videos included) - an epic undertaking and the results are breathtaking - makes me want to go out and get 15l of resin (not). Look forward to seeing more of your work it is truly inspirational.

I posted about the campaign scenery for my gaming table on the blog here.

There are pictures on Liber Malefic to check out for the most dedicated heretics. And of course here are some more visuals for my friends on TBMF. Smile















Wanna see more ye scurvy sea-dogs? Sir, yes sir!






As if it were intended to tease, because it always seems to be just out of the shot, here are some close-ups for that mysterious towering office that stands in the Shipwright's Boatyard...





One more?



Regards,

Werekin

Man, these pictures are insane! There's so much detail in every single piece you've built...

And the blog is such a treat! You guys are fantastic!

Most of the credit goes to Carl. He did a spiffing job on the those burnt out warehouse and fortified buttresses! The architectural discussions we had in advance of customising special builds has paid its dues.

I've just realised that more of the detail which I've added wasn't there when this photoshoot took place. I have added wooden jetties, the watch tower and worked on a cemetery. I want to complete more markers to go with the treasure chests - two more objective sets are in the works! These are really handy in games.

Multiple boats and carts will also be needed for the campaign. I have some materials available to work on vehicles. Do you aim to create anything like that Joao?

Drop me a PM some time about coordinating a get together... I should have free time to geek out when my band has finished recording our album around April time.

Cheers,

Stu

Absolutely! I'm still in Bournemouth, so I can drop you a message when I get some free time - Easter break is coming soon!

As for building something similar, for the time being I'm renting a flat which only allows me to have so many things. I do have a board and quite a few buildings, but I feel I would need a more dedicated space to get myself into a similar project.

As for boats and carts, are you just using plain balsa wood or are you getting bits from hobby shops?

What about civilians? Where are they? Who are they? I'm really curious about this whole city.

Yes I spoke with Frogprince about fellow forum members being in town. We're keen to meet our local counterparts. Our suggestion is meet to discuss hobby over a brew at one of the few good alehouses. Our favourite is my local, the Goat & Tricycle. Wink

As for boats and carts, are you just using plain balsa wood or are you getting bits from hobby shops?
I have a Landship which fits the look. It can be used as a river barge I think. It's tricky resourcing good kits for ships which are Warhammery. It would be great to work on a couple of ship-of-the-lines for interactive scenario but that's another big commitment... I've seen a few things I liked but not committed to anything.

River boats being smaller should be something that can be scratch built. Geek Girl has been fretting over this for her Strigany Pirates. I had some parts from the Forge World kit which I had replaced so I gave her these to mess about with... I had thought them damaged but turns out any warping can be corrected with hot water. (Duh!)

For the carts, I visited the model shop in Westbourne. They have some useful building supplies. After picking through all the balsa wood type materials I selected what the store keep told me was walnut and lime! Whenever the Citadel carts & wagons come up on ebay they cost a bomb!! There are various funky components I would like to use. I have some metal wheels but none of those classic plastic ones from the 90's going spare. Also got the Dwarf Treasure Cart from the Skull Pass boxed set which is a neat model.

Quote :

For some scenarios, objective markers are required. I have some for specialist treasures markers for arcana including a carpet and tome, plus some chests for generic treasure. Hostages are another type of objective. For these I thought to represent some of the local civilians using damsels in distress.

There is a horde of undead marauding unchecked throughout the city as the campaign begins. Luckily my pal Frog Prince works on a big army of zombies, ghouls etc. The rest of the characters in the campaign are factions in contention for influence and wealth. I guess the new warbands are something I will be talking about next on the blog at some point. pirat

great work! Any gamer would be honored to play on such a lovingly crafted table. The boat with the two squares cut into it: is that for placing bases so the models don't tip over when moving? Great idea if so, and it illustrates the model limit for the small two person row boat.

Oh yeah this is an fantastic table!

You inspired me to build some canals on my own sometime.

I am looking forward to see some battle pictures of new warbands in this awesome city of yours.

Somebody asked for battle reports. I uploaded pictures to my blog (including the one below) in July from my annual birthday battle, along with some narrative of the battle. Forgot to mention it on this thread!

left to right: Chris 'Frogprince' Kneller, Stu (Werekin), 'Canada' Steve Hume (aka The Cad)



I haven't updated the blog since and there has been a lot going on. A lady at my office told me to blog more today so I will look to get some more updates going this month. I don't want Cianty making me look bad now that he is back on the scene...

Nice battle report, Stu, albeit a little too 'pic-light' for my taste. Razz
