100 Fatal Blows (Bladed edition) for all fantasy RPGs, PDF Release today!

24 Mar

Well, I waste no time in announcing the latest release in the Grinning Skull Design Studios schedule, our growing range of RPG & wargaming PDF publications.

Grinning Skull Design Studios presents: 100 Fatal Blows (Bladed Edition) for all fantasy RPGs.

The latest in the “Grim’s Amazing D100 Tables” range of publications, this product is designed to be used by both GM’s and players for adding killing blow descriptors for any RPG combat system that may lack that aspect. Completely system agnostic and made with compatibility with any fantasy RPG system in mind, can be used time and time again to give visceral and gore soaked descriptions of finishing blow criticals delivered with swords and other bladed weapons.

Although intended for fantasy RPGs, can be easily used for other gaming genres where bladed combat is used.

Compatible with virtually every Fantasy RPG system!

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Star Hat Miniatures: Heroic Scale Metal Figures Kickstarter

11 Aug

Well, how could I not feature this KS, given that the tagline for these minis is “Delvers Lost in the Dungeons of Doom!” it’s pretty much right up my alley! Star Hat miniatures are a company I haven’t come across before, but they have my attention now!

As you will gather, these are a set of generic adventurer types typical for dungeon exploration as per the usual RPG/wargaming fantasy fare. There is an old skool feeling to these, very similar to some ancient citadel sculpts and a few other older UK miniature firms work, which is a good thing, although some purists might disagree.

I like them, that’s for sure, and there are more than enough options for classes that’d fit many an RPG group needing some miniatures to fit their party for some dungeon bashing tomfoolery!

I feel that the only criticism I can aim at Star Hat Miniatures, is that the “Dungeons of Doom” moniker is used, and i should be at least getting a free set of them to pay for the favorable review and the royalty bonus for using that in the set title! But joking aside, they look fine to me and (hint, hint!) If you ever want me to review a set in person on here, please do!!!

No doubt this KS will be fully funded, as it’s already almost there, but do your bit and check them out if old skool D&D type figures is your thing. Check out the link to visit the project KS page for more info:

Ok, so finally I found the photos for this episode of Grim’s Dungeons of Doom; Realm of the dead. This article, we are going to make some Necropolis Obelisks or tomb marker type monuments, these will match the rest of the other dungeon set and work well as standalone pieces in their own right. As ever, you can catch up with other articles in  this series by clicking on the link in the menu, to see how the set is put together. I’ll be detailing two different designs here, but the idea is simple so it’s just to illustrate how you can make up your own designs with little real effort. Anyway, lets get going and build something… Continue reading

Just a quick post to let you know that the Arcane Library paperkit is now available for download from our good friends over at Wargame Vault. Once again it is made available as a pay what you want product, so that means you can get it free if you like (but any donations are greatly appreciated!!)

This is a fully 3D environment kit, that being able to construct huge complexes or just simple structures. Totally 100% compatible with other Grinning Skull studios PDF products. I must say I’m pretty proud of this kit, it’s turned out better than what I had expected!! Although this is aimed at a fantasy crowd, this could easily be put to use with modern horror (haunted house type of thing) or even a pulp sort of set up too!!

It’s Saturday, and that means it’s yet another post for Grim’s Dungeons of Doom, that being of the advanced (but still quite easy) version of the cemetery gateway, actual opening gates. I have tried to use alternatives methods and materials to give you some different ideas that you can take away and adapt for your own builds on a variety of model projects.  Continue reading
