The Compendium deadline looms…only 5 days left!

10 Aug

update

So, as I sit hear nursing a headache, I did mean to remind anyone submitting Advertising to the Grinning Skull Compendium 2016. The deadline is 15th August, so if your still interested in including your advert in the PDF, I need your stuff by then, as after that I will be doing all the finishing touches for an end of August release.

We still have space to run more ads, so if you’d like to be involved as an advertiser, or even want to submit an article, let me know by leaving me a message via the contact page and if you want to know more check out this article detailing the compendium.

I’m off to take some paracetamol now, so see you all later!

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

500posts

So, post 500. Since it’s inception back in 2012 it’s been quite a journey, and it’s changed quite a bit. Much has transpired, lives have changed and much material & ideas have been scribbled and typed, yes, it’s been an “interesting” time.

All I want to say is to all you who have come through this site, for whatever reason, Thank you all.

Thank you for supporting the site and reading my stuff. I promise that I’ll try and keep adding to the content here and try and make this site more useful and relevant to you all.

Lets raise a glass (or cuppa in my case) to the future and another 500 posts and 4 more years…

Cheers guys!!

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!!

Check out Wargame Vault here http://www.wargamevault.com/product/186570/Grims-Dungeons-of-Doom-The-Arcane-Library?src=hottest_terrain_products to download this PDF, and let me know what you think of it!!

THE GRINNING SKULL NEEDS YOU!!

Just a quick post to ask of you, my dear readers. I know a lot of you use the Resources page here on the Grinning Skull, it’s a popular location for great free resources for wargaming, RPGs and material on the internet, all indexed neatly in one place to be used time and time again.

That’s all well and good, but I’d like us as a community to band together and make this great page even greater!

So, if you know of, or have a a free resource for something that you think should be included in the lists, please let me know via the contact me part of this site. I try to add new and fresh links as much as I can, but with the amount of info spaced out across the internet, it’s a long and drawn out process that I just can’t give enough time dedicated to it.

If you find anything that’d be useful to the community, let me know and I can pop it on the list!

Broadcast over!!
