Osprey’s Rogue Stars: Is it any good? Give me your recommendations?

5 Sep

So, been browsing about, and I’ve noticed Rogue Stars: Skirmish Wargaming in a Science Fiction Underworld (Osprey Wargames), which has caught my eye with a prospect of getting it. I absolutely know jack s**t about it, only that it seems like an attempt at a mini skirmish game attempt from Osprey to get some of that sweet Star Wars/Guardians of the Galaxy/Marvel Cosmic type of vibe going on! Which is exactly why I’m attracted to it in the first place.

Thing is, I’ve got a habit of collecting miniatures that don’t really fit anywhere else, just loads of weird and wonderful little lead men (and creatures) that would seem that I could actually put them to use in a game of this. I’ve got CP models Avians that spring to mind to start with, but just looking at my lead piles, I could easily find a shed load of possibles. Only thing is, is Rogue Stars any good? North Star is doing a funky looking mini line, which a few of them look pretty cool

It’s got ok reviews, but some are not so good. Some say it’s got a Rogue Trader-esque feel to the whole approach, so that keeps me interested, but I’m still sitting on the fence about it.

If you have any info, or have played it,  let me know your views on the game, and see if you’ll persuade me to buy it, I hope so, I do love making sci-fi scenics and terrain. I can see it now…A new series of terrain tutorials, “Grim’s Dark Futures…”!

Putting publications in print. Anyone want a copy?

8 Jun

Ploughing through the various ways of self-publishing in print is very interesting. So, I thought I’d share a few thoughts on the subject and show you an early version I have had done for quality comparison.

Back in the day, I remember the old indie RPG crowd in a similar position to Grinning Skull, and remembered the various ways of printing their home-brewed scenarios and sourcebooks and rules. Many were spiral bound for ease of use during play, so first off, I wanted to check it out for the old skool vibe. Since many of the titles in the back catalogue (Of which there are over 100!), many of them lack the large page count to justify such becoming an A4 spiral bound book without either compiling them or changing them enough for such a task.

As you can see, “The Witch’s Daughter” (GSAM01) scenario was a good fit, being that the 68-page count does actually warrant such binding. I can say, the printing of the front and back cover is perfect and glossy, the interior is lovely edge to edge printing of decent quality black and white. I can’t complain about this test version.

I hope to produce limited runs of several titles over time and offer them for purchase to see who would be interested in having a copy (If your interested in getting a copy in this or another format, please get in touch and I’ll give you more details) Print titles planned for this A4 format (Probably more likely to be in A4 Saddle-stitched format) will include Modules GSAM01 The Witch’s Daughter (Above) GSAM02 Singularity (Sci-fi adventure, coming soon) and GSAM03 Betrayal at Tarsus Mor (fantasy adventure, coming soon), plus there will be Grinning skull’s Book of Riddles (an edited and combined edition of 100 Riddles volumes 1 & 2), A collected and added to version of Grim’s Dungeons of Doom articles found on this site, and the next Grinning Skull Compendium/Annual for 2017.

Let me know your thoughts, interest and comments, either by the comments box below, or contact me via the form.

Also, a quick reminder, The Witch’s Daughter is still available from us in PDF format and as part of the “Witch’s Daughter Adventure bundle” deal that adds extra relevant titles at a discounted price.

Oggam Hut Paperkit & Oggam book re-released on Wargame Vault

10 Jul

rereleasebooks

To cut down on the storage space here (so I can have more space for uploading pics) I’ve decided to re-release both the Book of the Oggam and The Oggam hut over on Wargame Vault. Not only will this help keep space down, but allow me to track the downloads better and have them all in one place. Other links to these books uploaded on this site will  become redirected toward the new links (Just give me a little time to update everything on site)

They will still be free to download, and since it’s the aniversary here, I thought it was the right thing to do as the whole Oggam idea was what started this site in the first place!

You can get the Book of the Oggam here: http://www.wargamevault.com/product/187482/War-Pigs-The-Book-of-the-Oggam

And the Oggam Hut here: http://www.wargamevault.com/product/187525/WAR-PIGS-Oggam-hut

Of course, you can browse the other PDFs in the range at our publisher page on Wargame Vault here: http://www.wargamevault.com/browse/pub/8807/Grinning-Skull-Studios

Thanks, and enjoy!

comics_dark_dredges

So, as ever I have been involved in this years World Book night (April 23rd) and my choice this year as a giver, is a collected 2000AD book about the evil deadworld Judges, Death, Fire, Fear and Mortis. This classic collection is what I remember as a kid, eagerly getting my copy of 2000AD every weekend!

I still have a few copies of this great little collected graphic novel (pocket sized paperback) so, I’m offering them up to you good UK blog readers (UK only I’m afraid due to the costs of the postage system) You’ll need to send me an A5 letterbox sized SAE (stamp addressed envelope) with your details, and I’ll mail one to you!!

So if you want a copy, please send me a message and I’ll put your name down for one and I’ll get back in touch to let you know. If there are many takers, I’ll stick all the names in a hat and let you know if your a winner! I can’t say fairer than that!

dark-judges-03

Apologies again to my international readers, its just that international postage will be far too high, and is a bit of a faff around! May I suggest you check your area for a world book night event or giver near you, and check out http://www.us.worldbooknight.org/ or that of your specific country to see what events are going on right now!!

I promise you all that I’ll include you in the next comp/sweepstake type affair I’m planning (and trust me, it’s going to be a good one!)
