Ramshackle Games New post apoc 20mm bikers

16 Apr

I admit a liking for 20mm stuff, especially the idea of post apocolypse stuff. I could get well into the scale and genre big time, even so it could be tricky, given the limited options available. After spotting this over on frothers, I had to show you lot.

Which is why this new release from Ramshackle Games gives a bit of hope. Very “Dark Future“, so I can see some of you resurrecting your old boxed sets and using these, especially when the new Mad Max movie comes out (I also it to see a post apoc miniature revival then too!)

Overall, its a great set, and good value too that won’t break the bank either.

It’s been the ruin of me! Scratch built 15mm modern ruins scenery!

So, I thought I’d also share my latest additions to my scratch built scenery, my post apoc blasted modern ruins. I intended these for use in modern to zombie, post apoc and sci-fi. I try and make stuff that will fit a wide range of use due to real lack of storage, otherwise I would make all sorts of random big scenics, just cause it would be cool to do! I can’t unfortunately so the bits have to be more multifunctional. First bit is a large base of 3 ruins, cost nothing to make, pretty basic, but effective. Pictures say more than words, here’s the pics.

This next piece is what was originally a broken toy house I had to dispose of from my toddlers, it was dangerous and snapped. The rules of my house is, if it’s going in the bin, Dad’s going to put it to some use! I added some wood bits, foam card, tiny square foam craft stickers, bits of crap and dried plaster left overs and some other bits from my bits box. It turned out nice, the inside I prefer to the front, but it is going to be a good addition to the ruins collection.

I thought you might appreciate some action shots, so I present these just to give you a better idea where this is going to, As you can see the black dog building next to them, as with a few 15mm figures for scale (including the 10mm minotaurs) I do have more planned, enough i hope to do a large section of ruined city, but time will be a factor for any deadlines getting round to them.

Hope you like them!

Need to know where to go in an apocolypse? Get the Seattle Doomsday Map on Kickstarter!

8 Feb

This very cool concept over on Kickstarter is something I thought I would point out for post apoc/zombie fans, wargamers and roleplayers. Here is presented a full map of Seattle in the midst of a apocolyptic scenario, this would make a great prop, or campaign map for your zombie wargaming campaigns, or just a cool poster! It is the brainchild of Tony Dowler, the creator of this unique project  and I must say I think this is a winner as there is loads of potential uses for this. You can have the map in a variety of different formats (You can even contact him about getting the PDF in high res so you can use it with miniatures or RPGs)

This is one I will be going for I think for that very reason as it will be a great addition for my forthcoming uber campaign. I hope that he  will have a go at doing the same treatment for a whole host of cities, not only in the US but some UK and European ones as well.

I love the folding street map version too, I can see the appeal to zombie and post apoc RPGs to add  another dimension during the game, and to add some atmospheric wall dressing in your play area!

Go and check it out and see it for yourself, look on the plus side….at least you’ll know where to go if you get lost in post apocolyptic Seattle…
