Compendium Update!

28 Jul

updatetastercompen

Ok, first off, if you were hoping to see the next part in the Grim’s Dungeons of Doom article, then you’ll have to wait, as I’ve lost some photos somewhere, so I need to get a few new shots done to fill the gaps, but rest assured, it’ll be here soon!

Since I’ve been really busy beavering away with putting together the compendium, and school holiday duties (keeping my kids occupied is almost a full time job!) I thought I’d share some info with you about what’s coming up in the PDF.

As you can see from the above picture, here’s just five of the paper-kits that’ll be included in the book/zine, We have the shops/dwellings kit for an on the fly, easy way to create small villages for your games, then we have the Grinning Skull Studios meta-books sampler kit, for those of you who actually want to include some of our PDF publications on your models in 28mm scale!

We’ve also got some nice customisable ruined wall set that would suit almost every genre of game, and we have a tall wealthy quarter dwelling building too, all in 28mm.

Finally, we have a kit to expand on the dungeon builder series of models, such as our Arcane Library kit. Here we have the Grand stone temple expansion that will increase your options for building more varied and different complexes.

Not pictured, are the protest sign kit, ideal for modern gaming, The Fine furnishings sampler “the dinner party” kit and probably more kits I can’t remember, not to mention some great gaming and mini related articles to keep you entertained!

On a side note, we still have spaces left for any advertisers who might like some FREE advertising in the compendium, so please get in touch if you’d like to be included.

In the mean time, if you have any questions or need to know anything, get in touch, comment or discuss. I will be back soon with the next Dungeons of Doom article, and hopefully more.

Coming Soon; Grim’s Dungeons of Doom Arcane library paper kit preview

27 Jun

Hi everyone. If you were expecting the latest Grim’s Dungeons of Doom article this weekend, then I have to apologise and tell you that it will be coming up later this week. I have been side tracked by the work I’ve been doing on the latest PDF in my range, and I thought I’d share some preview pictures of it so far.

S0126555

This pack is the first of my fully 3d environment kits, that can be used to create interior layouts both small and huge. I’ll be releasing more add on packs and new themes as time goes on, so I hope that you’ll enjoy making and using them. The theme for this kit being that of the Arcane Library, but can be used for a whole heap of different indoor places easily without too much adaption. The kit comes with several different wall variants, lots of book shelf designs, an empty bookcase, supports, doorways and floors.

I’ll be releasing The Arcane Library pack in a few days over on wargame vault (and associated sister sites) so if you like the look of it, you’ll be able to get it there. I’m pretty pleased with the end result, and I’ve already started on an accessory kit (Fine Furnishings Vol 1, which might also be out around the end of the week, if I’m lucky.)

S0036539

Everything you can see apart from the ground texture (found in the Grim’s ground works PDF) and some miniature books (from the books, scrolls and maps volumes PDF) is included in the pack. I do hope that buyers of the product will share some pics of their builds to see what they can come up with!!

Grinning Skull Miniatures: B.E.A.R.S. Greens sneak peek!

20 Oct

Here’s a quick sneak peek at some of the latest greens for Grinning Skull’s B.E.A.R.S in the range. Yes, you heard right, I’m adding teddy bears with guns to the mix. Why? Why not!?

For me, miniatures and gaming is supposed to be fun, and with so much serious stuff already out there I guess there needs to be more comic relief, so I decided to create these fun figures. Apparently, teddies are quite popular for collectors and such, so I thought I’d make some gaming versions that have a decidedly “Grinning Skull asthetic”

oiuytrdcfvhbjk

In a nutshell, The B.E.A.R.S (Bio Engineered Advanced Ranger Squad) are an artificial race of teddies, created by the great Toymaster entity for his endless amusement. Subsequently these bears went rogue and escaped from their maker to dispense justice and help throughout the Carnage Continuum to those in need. Outraged at this betrayal, the Cosmic Toymaster created their opposite (eX-T.E.D.) to hunt down and destroy his rogue children and cause chaos throughout the galaxy!

The first  eX-T.E.D. bunch are forthcoming, and will feature an array of evil versions on the theme (Led by Dr. Strangefluff and his cohorts) Hopefully if popular there will be additional bears on each side, influenced by popular tropes from all sorts of things (superhero, scifi, fantasy, cartoon and movies etc)

I’ll admit, I’ve been sidetracked lately, but I’m almost finished with this set, just got a couple more eX-T.E.D. figures to go, but I’ll show off them soon.

I’ll show more from the new bunch later, but safe to say, it’s not just teddies in the mix. Additions to the Zarglian Invaders and introducing the sentient mutant plants, the Klorzids.

As ever I welcome comments, thoughts and suggestions, let me know how you think.

10mm Zombies: Pendraken zombie survivors preview!

18 May

For those of you who are anticipating the release of Pendraken’s 10mm modern zombie miniatures, take a look at the greens over on the Pendraken forum!

Sculpted by the very talented industry veteran, Phil Lewis, these little survivors are going to be a great addition to the forthcoming range in this scale. I myself will be looking forward for the chance to do some Z gaming using them, and lets hope that the buying public will see good sense and buy shed loads of them, so the guy’s at Pendraken see fit to keep supporting the range with other Z specific and modern stuff to fill out our 10mm post apocolyptic cityscapes.

Go on over to the Pendraken forum and join in the conversation!!

Something for the zombies to chase..
