"Gather now about the fire. Huddle close to its light, for this is a dark and terrible tale. A tale of the Silver Tower

Hello to all, to those who know me I have experimented many times with different attempts to make my Quest dungeon but due to family reasons were sold to make money and restarted later on. With the release of Silver Tower, I was wavy with the idea of being in just a Tower and that GWS just slap the name to a new board game. But worries aside the game is good and a inspirational for my project came from the Silver Tower Adventure Book page 3 of a Lord of Change grasping within his claws two dice.

Silly i know to base a project on that one image but from that I remembered the film Jason and the Argonauts where the men were but pawns to a game of the gods. and I thought what if we were the gods as players controlling the models in a world of the original Warhammer quest using the silver tower rules. Where we see the models on a board floating in the denzions of the tzeentch world but the models see only their world of stone and earth. I took the project at full speed and decided to try a make the Original Quest with the new rules for silver tower.

My games will be heavily influence by my main band of Heroes which will be based around a witch hunter that his adventures will be games against undead and daemons and greens.

So the Story so far....

So I found a Resin tile company called DMB Games that is owned by Andy Lawrence, a great guy and now a great friend, I recommend you highly to go see his website and facebook page as you will not regret it.
https://dmbgames.co.uk/

These are the images of his tiles from testers to finish completion.

To complete my image of a floating board in all codexes and Warhammer fantasy army books tzeentch buildings are floating upon rocks, I wanted to repeat this strong image so am using the scenery from Dreadfleet to make this a reality

Richard
08-01-2017, 12:01
So I wanted to have a clear image of the board floating so I knew the flying stands by games-workshop were a good starting point
I place loosely the Dreadfleet rock scenery to get an idea of what it would look like once placed

230823230829230830230831230832

From looking at the flying stands done by GWS I found another company run by a another now good friend called Simon whos
blotz company does laser cutting of both pdf and clear plastic. we decided on using a clear base stand form from two clear bases
with slots to fit the flying "legs" and with clear glue. sorry about the pics being wrong way, warseer pic upload changed the images I uploaded for some reason cant find an adjustment tool to rotate it

Richard

I have made a order with Simon for multiple flying tile stands so while I wait for them I've been very busy the other side of making the board with my models and rules ideas. Now I wasn't happy with the current orks GWS do, size wise so I knew my first conversion work was to make a very large aggressive stance orks to fight. I like the Ork Nobs from a old starter box including ultramarines and a crashed plane for 40k and used them as the starting point, few Warhammer heads and swords and shield swaps and this is what I came up with.
230850230845230846230847230848
With making the orks bigger I wanted the scale of the heroes to suit and I loved the avatars of war range so bought a large amount to get started with. I also had a old Grey Wizard from Mordheim which worked with the imagery I wanted for my project.
230849230844230851230852230853

My first Hero I wanted to work on was the Dwarf Ironbreaker which its presence amplified the idea of defence and this is what got, very happy with the result.

Richard
08-01-2017, 12:32
My next idea was my Marauder, now I like the darkoath Cheftain, but not his head so may do a heap swap in the future. I wanted to do big two handed axe so using one of the new Khorne heroes from Age of Sigmar's Axe this is how I got on.

230856 230855 230854 230857 230858
230859 230860 230861 230862 230863

And my Bretonnian Questing Knight on foot, I couldn't find one suitable so I had to convert it I think it came out ok

Richard
08-01-2017, 13:48
Ok I knew I wanted a Bretonnian Knight and my idea has been called Blasphemy by a certain legend on the Quest forum. But I think I did a good conversion little touch ups to be done. But happy with the result, I may do another one same model but I try maybe a sword conversion. Avatars of War also do a female Imperial Noble which is very thin compared to the others so we see how it fares later in size comparison.

I'm a fan of repetitive stances with enemy models, with small differences. Easier to represent when rules and gameplay come into mind. But I should of known GWS would bring out multi limb models later on. Anyway these are the models I did as soon as the game came out last year. I wanted them all to have shields so here they are.
It was the same with the beastmen, I wanted repeated stances with little changes and the axe looks really cool so wanted to express this in the models

Gotta say this is one of my favourite single models Gws has released, beautifully stream lined

Richard
11-01-2017, 04:28
So gaming wise I have experimented hero wise with original character ideas of models, either have or hope to get. now some rules are made up, but 87% are taken from the app, renamed or reapply in certain way which I thought would work, weapon stats are same. these are just ideas, I hope their fare in game haven't properly tested them but will soon.
When it came to doing the Dwarf Slayer I know theres a two handed weapon model and two axes I like so I tried to make the hero so you can use either.

Upon looking at the images after uploading, the Pit Fighters Battle-blades ability is supposed to be +1Combat weapon action not whatever you like to do action.

So I received my order from simon and have started to glue the tiles to the stands, need to purchase more clear glue to really start going more in next post, for now I have just wanted to see how the terrain would work with the game so pics illustrate my idea of using the extra side tiles for terrain but not getting in the way of game play.

ok so gaming wise I wanted to make rules for orcs but I wanted to make them simple and game play straight forward. Now orcs with hand weapons and shields, orcs with bows I have made be havior charts simple and forward but i wanted to have shamans and brutes, warboss etc but that means more charts which I didnt want to do, so i'm trying 2 charts one for orc warriors and one for bows, with orc brutes and shamans to make them stand out a little, they will follow the charts but have one ability which will make them stand out in games not massively but enough to keep it stream lined. Orc Brutes are able to re-roll failed rolls of 1 while shamans unless adjacent to a hero, they will always attack with their spell area attack. I will make bigger meaner characters with their own charts, their will only effect them on the chart but I haven't tackle them yet suffice to say they be like the gaunt summoner and the ogre wizard. here are so let me know what you think

I'm amazed by how cool those floating tiles look. Seems like a ton of time and effort but I love the result! Can't comment on the rules because I play very little and have next to no idea how these things are supposed to work, but good luck!

Thank you all for your nice comments.

Benvoliothefirst the rules character wise I just took the options they had from the characters they have on the app, renamed them or changed them slightly like a combat attack I changed it to be a shooting attack or, the idea to increase the number buy kill points I increase the number by the number of healthy heroes etc. I don't want to change the game but I want to use the new silver tower rules for the original characters as close to their character style as possible. As for the Monsters and Orcs it may not work out as planned but I have spent hours or solitare and reading the two books over and over again, done exactly what they have just apply the one on one rule to the silver tower rules.

Richard
19-01-2017, 02:40
The idea I had for this staple in Warhammer Quest, I wanted to keep to the original character as much as possible without overdoing the skills and abilities,
but its hard to figure out which ones to use as there are so many good ones

Looking really great I was wondering if they would ever do expansions to silver tower but this seems to mix both the old and new perfectly.

Quoted ;

Warhammer Quest: Silver Tower was one of the highlights of last yearís Warhammer Age of Sigmar releases (and thatís saying a lot, because there were some great ones). The return of the classic format, but set in the Mortal Realms, was an instant hit, and weíve been bombarded ever since with questions about a follow on game.

Well, today weíre delighted to reveal that one is on the way.

Warhammer Quest Shadows over Hammerhal will be an entirely self contained game with a whole new cast of heroes and villains.

232916 232917 232918 232919

Weíre very excited about this for all sorts of reasons. The game will obviously see new quests and challenges for gamers, but perhaps just as excitingly, this set will have an even more involved narrative, and will explore the dark labyrinths beneath one of Sigmarís new Free Cities: Hammerhal, the twin-tailed city Ė a metropolis that is built around a Realmgate and sprawls across two realms!

This new set is a little ways off yet, but we were super excited, and we just wanted to share it with you.


Can't wait

I got my last tile piece done for now waiting on the other ten to be made and sent to me. Hoping to save up a little for baddies,

I have always found that my Wizard in games has always been all or nothing the lynchpin in the group, one quest the first room was the monster lair and two minotaurs came killing the wizard out right... not one of my best quest games but fond memories of the laughter we had have certainly stayed with me. Having no extra power dice when a unexpected event occurs always hurt me and that's one of the things I like about the wizard, he is a swiss army knife of the group from killing to healing to subtle tricks to aid the group along their way across the dungeon.

I wanted to represent this in the game rules of silver tower so I decided to redo the Human Wizard Characters. I'm hoping each one represents what I see that type of wizard order brings to the table rather than rinse and repeat.

Jade, Grey and Bright are the Wizards I want to use I got the Grey Wizard I know I want to make the Bright Wizard or at least attempt to, the jade wizard I know I want enigma miniatures Ulgren the Green wolf but I can't get my hands on him for the life of me. I always found this image very appealing to me as my group has a witchhunter and bright wizard in it, so a female bright wizard may be on the cards.

232920

Character wise my opinion so no offense

Bright Wizard, fiery temper can attack multiple targets cause a lot of damage

Grey Wizard, movement and illusion uses cunning and tactics to take down their foes

Jade Wizard, well my thoughts are in the Warhammer world their not flower dancing faries, but have a stern look on life.
That life is a gift and should not be over look, with chaos destroying all types of life of "mother earth" and its inhabitants they cannot allow it to go unchallenged.

Any way here are my thoughts again untested till I have the models to play but I think their keep to the character of each order

Very good idea Richard. Great idea actualy that's asking to be stolen 😊. We had lots of games where the wizard dies one way or another. The best were where he kills a few minotaurs in one room to be offer by a single rat in the next. Now we have one that can't die some very clever that found a loophole and is now the highest level in our campaign. The fire mage is one character I wanted to create for some time now and the jade one aswell just hard for me to get decent cards put together. Have yet to play a silver tower game yet but love how you put the details on these cards with each mage their speciality and give them somewhat of a fitting personality. Would be great to play a game with only casters such as these.

Richard
01-02-2017, 06:25
I have yet to be inspired to see a model for a bright wizard and say that's exactly whats in my head for a bright wizard. Jade wizard the idea I got for his stlye visually was Warcraft movie the ork ambush in woods just after the young mage throws up a energy shield the master sucks the life force from the orks back into the earth which is so how I see the life force spell. The deathblow 2 has a very good article on jade wizards if you get a chance to read it Easygrin.

And a whole Wizard party well in original I would say your nuts lol With silver tower rules (Not mind but actual game) I think they would have a better chance of living...a turn or two more lol

Richard
04-02-2017, 02:14
Looking at the Cave Squigs I knew I didn't want to make a massive change when it came to the Night Goblins Squig Hoppers and the way I see it they merely turn and point them in the right direction as I can't see them actually hitting anything bouncing around. So I simply gave the card a controlling skill which takes away the Cave Squigs Wild Ability.

233119 233121

Does anyone else love the look of these Trolls besides the price tag. Don't think the card I done would work for them may have to re-think and do another type.

233120

I managed to get me hands on a cheap second hand model of the picture below. I don't like the look of them in the flesh will need to do something with them for a dungeon trap I wonder what I could do with them.

ok so I think this boxset will have three chaos god followers as you have the tzeentch alcoytes, the Nurgle Blight kings/Knights whatever their called and from what I can see
behind the stormcaster warrior a chaos khorne warrior I think.

all six warriors have +1 basic weapon action 2 damage or are able to cause 2 damage easily and quickly with their special abilities while in the silver tower it was just the knight questor that was 2 damage basic.

Makes you wonder was the stat lines are for what their facing is

some more critter Monster Cards for you

So much win! Top drawer stuff Richard. My flgs manager just told me the contents of Hammerhal will be:
£90 rrp and includes:

1x Lord Castellant and Gryph Hound
1x Cogsmith
1x Black Art Fleetmaster
1x Loremaster
1x Chaos Sorcerer Lord
5x Putrid Blightkings
10x Kairic Acolytes
10x Bloodreavers
1x 72 page guide book
1x 32 page adventure book
18x double sides board sections
55x cards
12x dice

Richard
14-02-2017, 01:14
you beat me too it Andy lol yeah just found out on the facebook page, but no new miniatures and very little compared to what to get in the silver tower box set.
if you look at prices
1x Lord Castellant and Gryph Hound 23pounds
1x Cogsmith 13 pounds
1x Black Art Fleetmaster 12 pounds
1x Loremaster 12 pounds
1x Chaos Sorcerer Lord 9 pounds
5x Putrid Blightkings 33.50 pounds
10x Kairic Acolytes called it 15 pounds as half of the boxset sold in gws
10x Bloodreavers called it 17.50 pounds as half of the boxset sold in gws

total comes to 135 pounds for 33 miniatures silver tower had 51 BUT a mixture of different baddies which gave you the feel of the original box which had skaven, orcs, goblins and lots of critter swarms. the gameplay is changed again but compatible with silver tower I just hope it gives you more scope to play and level long term.

Richard
24-02-2017, 06:01
232924 232925

Ok i'm just gonna say this, I'm disappointed with Gws that the new box has no new miniatures and that the background is not to my liking, having said that i'm happy with the support that Warhammer Quest is getting from GWS and that it will continue.

It all looks good and yes I have pre ordered it but the back ground story is the SLAANNESH sorcerer with no slaannesh models is in charge of the three other gods followers?
that doesn't sit well with me even if they just chucked in in 10 Daemonettes into the box I would have had no quarrels or problems nothing, I know they will do slaannesh in the future but they could of at least put ten models in which like the sliver tower show us the promise of what future sales lay ahead.

Anyway I'm looking forward to the release.

Sorry I have been quiet for awhile, so to make up for it 30 yes 30 random encounter cards I been working on updating into the new to date style game rules

hope you like.

So been designing this for awhile but took longer to be made finally got it made being sent out to me and then GWS announce their bringing out new box and new rules..... great

232932

I already knew I wanted the choice of levelling up which is why extra hero dice and level section is on the dashboard. But looking now you can keep treasure and go to city etc thinking of adding to the dashboard will need to look into extending it anyway your thoughts would be grateful.

Had a chuckle to myself last looking over my collection, over 6 years, 6 stop and starts, 15 theme change ideas. Then one release of silver tower from GWS and year later I practically got a hold gaming board to play and start painting

Am already in making a revisited version where to the left there be card slots and instead of hero cards your own paper with written information on it in same style.

You won't have to wait long...

I just received my deathworld scenery box which I only wanted the one plant (2 in box) to go underneath the board, I sell it back on ebay and my resin tiles are not long from completion and soon be heading to me,,, ya!

Easygrin I put this simply, with having a game with sliver tower... DON'T! there simple. if you have just bought the new updated version stick with that as the game mechanics are suppose to be same or improved, and more in touch with the original game than this... APPARENTLY. And I think we shop at the same shop as I got mind for the same price in pounds, I don't think the game is worth the original price as there no new miniatures just high selling ones put together. they would of been better off making it a board and book expansion with ok a villain, and 20 servants. like the catacombs of terror or lair of the orc warlord.

Is silver tower that bad to play?! Still busy painting it (it goes slow not much time) read really good reviews on it. Just to bad indeed that it could not have come out as one game but it could be nice to switch around I think with or without GM.

Not what I meant easygrin, silver tower has good reviews from both new players and veterans alike BUT the new box after reading it through a dozen times is what we been waiting for. It is the original with the new rules style. I have read through the book, it feels to me like what they should of done first off with sliver tower.

Read through the new rule book get yourself use to the new mechanics of standard gameplay, and then play with or without a gamemaster. To me each expansion is giving you a different part or way you can play Warhammer quest which you can combine together as well. The first was simple a labyrinth dungeon crawling but games-workshop style, the new one, introduces the option of a gamemaster IF you want to or not, its not telling you MUST its giving you the option.

There's nothing wrong with silver tower to play honest lol I have based my entire board around the whole idea so theres nothing wrong with it lol., they have made changes and worked out the bugs from it and changed them in new one that's why I said read new one to get to grips with rules to play silvertower better.

Easygrin
10-03-2017, 06:01
Great can't wait your stuff is always great. And I did read a bit of the new one mostly about the enemy's there seem to be more options from the book itself to expand upon. For me personally the new box is great might not be new miniatures but I didn't own one off them the heroes need a lot of conversions tho as they are possibly even worse the ones from silver tower.

the only rules for models outside of the box they have given you to expand upon is plaguebearers which are sick, and the khorne warriors and khorne ball and chain swinging guys.

the only niggle I have with the new box is that the main rule book..... is half a mordheim story, quarter painting guide and the rest rules. Me personnelly would of wanted a story book release like sliver tower separate, the painting guide could of been a leaflet and the rulebook just rules I would be happy but as you have to bend half the book already before you get to the rules, not good for me but there we go that's my niggle.

Right i'm looking into starting my undead themed dungeon and wanting to see if people thought along the same lines as me with enemy vigour I got a list of enemies I be purchasing or making so the list represents what I hope to get in the future. skele I gone off their stats from the necromancer hero card. and kept the big baddies the same as the silver tower Gaunt Summoner and ogre wizard health bars stats but of course I will do special rules for each so they are challenging. Just wanted peoples thoughts

Bat Swarm 1
Giant Rats 1
Giant Spiders 1
Skeleton 2
Skeleton with Shield 3
Zombie 3
Vicious Giant Spiders 3
Vicious Giant Rats 3
Fell Bats 4
Crypt Ghoul 4
Grave Guard 4
Grave Guard with Shield 5
Necromancer Apprentice 6
Wight with Shield 6
Blood Knight (Vampire) 6
Wraith 6
Tomb Banshee 7
Crypt Horror 9
Ghoul King 10
Master Necromancer 10
Vampire Lord 10
Wight King 10

I haven't included many things as to me you wouldn't have them in a dungeon not saying you couldn't but I'm happy with my thoughts, the only other thing I thought I could put in was spirit hosts but I got a terrain feature i'm using them for so don't want to have a model for that in game.

For the behaviour charts, rather than having multiple charts, I was considering similar monsters using the same behaviour chart but their special rules would stand them apart like so

Giant Rats
Vicious Giant Rats

Giant Spiders
Vicious Giant Spiders

Skeletons
Grave Guard
Wights

Fell Bats

Crypt Ghouls

Zombies

Necromancer Apprentice

Wraith

Tomb Banshee

Blood Knight
Vampire Lord

Master Nercomancer

Wight King

Crypt Horror

Ghoul King

Very late to the party, but nice work on the updated cards for the new Whqst game Richard :D

Sounds very promising Richard will you make a UD campaign sort of like the old one with the master Necromancer and his apprentice as main bads or maybe throw in a Wight king they will try to summon. Boss fights are the best ;)
Wish they would have put some more effort in the monster lists to come up with the stuff you come up with

I thought I better do your post justice by answering them separately... that and am not sure how to do multiple post answers lol

In truth am hoping to do a Undead Campaign, my main characters I use in the past have been witch hunters, priest, dwarf warriors, dwarf slayer, various wizards so i'm going that way in my head and the models are cool so in my weird head.......


lord of changes stand round a glowing table, the master of the game (high chief lord of change or the gaunt summoner in another form) appears in front of them and sets the scene, the location Hammerhal, the pawns .............. they choose district, district comes up with three different quests all based around undead, some stand alone others a continuing storyline.

necromancer searching for items
plague zombies (more nurgle I know but got a nice undead feel to it)
crypt ghouls growing strength and numbers
evil wizard
necromancer story line kill the apprentice they think they succeeded just as he opens the coffin lid they kill him, leave but his blood spills fourth into the lid over the mouth of the vampire, (necromancer knowing his defeat allows his life blood to rise his forgotten king).
orks searching for items wake dead
dark magic storm sweeps area


mainly necromancers and rising dead but you get the general idea

Sounds like GW better hire you this sounds epic and a bit sad I will never get to play it. Really hope whatever they started with Hammerhall will get expansions (not another boxset it's cool but a bit overkill or give us options to create and add own monsters. But cheers to all your creativity for the other legends on this site that are dormant(but hopefully not gone) Glad your still sharing your thoughts

I need to let my madness out somewhere, warseer better place than any. its true I think coz the site went down legends worried it go down again or have started their own sites, rusty has his link is through shas'EL Tael eastern empire site. Shas'EL Tael himself is active on his very good website lots of nice articles and a dwarf ranger

WHICH HE IS YET TO PLACE HERE DONT MIND IF I SAY IT OUT LOUD

Daemonslave does a lot of work with tales of painters on the project logs but as you say this site was a treasure trove of quest legends hopefully some will return.

It be awhile but once I get ideas jotted down I put them up here so although we are not at the same table you get to play the same quest.

Close friend in my neck of the woods and on here who has been rather openly with his words bout my project along the lines of FINALLY lol as I has stop start a lot of times, I can't help it quest has so many ways of themed idea projects you can go I can't do all at once. He has greatfully said I can have some of his kings of war zombies which I have to admit I like more than GWS Ones, from there I have discovered their ghouls which are great in my eyes as well which I be purchasing later on, got testers in post so I post them up later with size comparisons.

Would love to see what miniatures you're gonna choose for this dynamic duo. I find that sinds this AOS rescaling it's harder to find other miniature company's that fit good with the current line. Many seem to be to small to fit with the older they are dwarfed for sure with this one

Wish granted if I can get hold of these models, these are what I would wish to have. the Apprentice I wanted him to be like a cult hooded figure, still have flesh on him so to speak, the necromancer from avatars of war I loved for a very long time, his skin is very thin thou I might cut off scythe to be just a staff

232946 232945

not sure yet but I'm having the ghouls from kings of war
zombies from Kings of War
creepy critters from Otherworld Miniatures
skeles crypt horrors from GWS

Easygrin
02-04-2017, 10:34
Great choice never seen that apprentice model. I would keep the scythe maybe think up a special rule for it ;)

Richard
06-04-2017, 11:11
Ok I have been wracking my brain for the last three weeks over four monster cards... my life is not normal. A year ago I would be spilling fourth 20 30 cards with whatever sounded right for the treasure or spell cards. But they where not my own either from the original roleplay book or the ios game weapons,put into my style of card format.

Now i'm pouring over every vampire counts army book made by GWS to make sure that the descriptions I got feel and sound like the character.

Ok you seen the Necromancer and Necromancer Apprentice cards I hope they come across ok, here are my next two Tomb Banshee and the Cairn Wraith.

Now I'm wanted to put the Monsters in the way I see or want to represent the Characters. I don't see a Tomb Banshee and the Cairn Wraith as the same thing, both are ethereal creatures but I don't see the Tomb Banshee as a Knight fighting till the bitter end, same for the wraith I see them as floating ghost doing what they want, go where they want etc I wanted to represent that ghost style in their special ability.

So each turn they automatically break from combat I mean you cant just grab their arm and say hang on and I don't see the banshee as a combat machine more like a flying ghost where her cries are the weapons and the wraiths old wizard staff has a ghostly scythe energy blade. Another way me seeing them is the Banshee is the Shooting ethereal Monster and the Wraith is the combat ethereal monster.

and they can move through other monsters as their ghosts and because their ghost its harder for mortals to hit them so all heroes reroll their first successful hit on them each turn. Anyway here are the cards let me know what you think if they sound right etc

232947 232948

Easygrin
09-04-2017, 22:11
Oh reroll successful hitrolls? That's just a creature of pure evil there are people that go through whole games without rolling a hit. That's gonna be a card everyone is gonna ooh no not that one. Well put together though with all those spells that's 2 nasty encounters

Richard
09-04-2017, 22:33
Yes why i'll be only having one card of each made. I don't think the Warhammer game ever did them justice on how evil or great they are, to me they are the most fear undead creatures to come across. stay tuned Crypt trio coming soon.

Richard
13-04-2017, 21:24
As promised next instalment

The Troops

232949

My Minotaur version for my dungeon

232950

And my first boss card hope it does him...it justice

232951

again please let me know what you think

another note me and Simon with flying stands we are both in final stages of making the Dashboard version 2 and Easygrin, I got skeles, grave guard, zombies vampires and skinwolves to work on but besides that I be happy with what I have done, I start putting my ideas to paper and on here hopefully with your input I be able to make a good quest that'll make a great story to tell over a ale or two.

Easygrin
14-04-2017, 18:32
Really good actually hate ghouls when I'm at low lev and the old minotaur seems easy compared to that crypt horror. And the boss card is cool always love the boss fights we sometimes put one in just at the end of an dungeon that's only produced goblins and shaven
I am really curious about the campaign that comes with all these bad boys. Sounds like it's going to be epic

Easygrin
16-04-2017, 16:56
Seems like you got rules for normal dungeon rolling pretty much rdy. Just to create a few missions. I think would be really cool to have some that can serve as self standing ones or/and that can be used as pre log to a epic campaign. That gives signs off the comming of a major threat to the entire Region maybe a run with the apprentice or other named characters. Are you designing all new 3d boards the ones you made for silver tower have got to be the most imaginative ones I seen so far. Really nice with such a themed dungeon and with more boss fights. Specially in a campaign they r a must 😊

Richard
17-04-2017, 08:11
Well the rules are there just the creatures I wanted to use but know doubt gws will release a undead expansion next and then all that I have done will be for nought lol. but to clarify the 3d board I have made is not just for silver or indeed for silver tower, that is the board I'm using for all my adventures. the idea of the board flying as such is the idea from silver tower which I intend to use for every game. YOU as a player are a god/lord of change sitting around a tzeentch pub table with other players that are gods or Lord of Change, now the game master is the Gaunt Summoner and they decide to play a game of Warhammer Quest each controlling a Character in the real world.

the characters in the real world will see through their eyes the real world dungeon stone etc what YOU see at the table is a floating platform which the characters are walking on.

For games there be many one offs but in the long run their all connected to a larger story, as my main character is a Witch Hunter anything and everything will be search into.

Oh and a side note

GWs have taken down their skeleton warriors off the websiteand not replenishing them instores atm

Am guessing their re packaging them but fingers cross with the rumours of a new boxed game shadowspire, their making new ones but hopefully not the grave guard as their really cool.

Easygrin
17-04-2017, 12:37
Have no idea if the skeletons will dissappear from the site they seem to be keeping up fairly ok with the standard at but u never know with GW they use ally give some notice before they remove models. Mercedes miniatures do some great skeleton warriors as well but they are costly. Also GW made some new ones for their underground skrmish game you should check out.

Richard
17-04-2017, 14:28
Went on their website the skeletons picture is faded with the sign No longer available on it which may mean like you say new ones on the way or redoing the box with circle bases, if the former, pity as I do like them ebay it will be then..

Easygrin
17-04-2017, 15:20
Yes wtf I just checked why take those put and keep the zombies that they have... anyway you should try element games good chance they still got some

waiting for a deadpool like fire mage to be painted

Having recently mastered a fire painting technique, this may be answered in the very near future!

Thanks for mentioning favourites though guys, heartening to read folks enjoying my paint splashing and parts sticking.

It has been informative reading through your topic Richard with EasyGrin's thoughts. I'll have to check out Hammerhall soon, but quite close to running my Lost Watchtower campaign.

Keep up the great art cards and your campaign ideas, definite inspiration for my eventual wandering into Age of Sigmar!

Hi to all sorry about being quiet the last month and half but have been busy each weekend and nearly every evening with back garden. From a grass embankment, 400 buckets of soil and a lot of cement mxing I think we did a god job, me, my dad and my trusty helpers

232957 232958 232959 232961 232960

what is it with warseer and portrait images arrgh

Richard
18-05-2017, 07:05
This is what I have been able to do for my cards is my Skeleton Warriors and Grave Guard.

Now I wanted the Skeletons to be both weak, fragile but powerful in future games as they be a focus point in most games, but I didn't want to do two types of skeleton cards. So I made the rules so that when certain characters are on the board which in future games will be more frequent, the skeleton warriors are buff up so to speak.

Grave Guard are the Tomb Guardians for me and made them little bit more beefer I think but I hope my idea comes across ok here they are.

232962 232963

and my second draft for the dashboard is done refine and now on to final version being made

The garden looks great fantastic work there from you and your dad and all the little helpers(fine job on them aswell) The game board and all the dungeon furniture is ace hope to get a dungeon like that myself at some time great stuff although I feel you should also show off your own floating dungeon off at this place which I still think is one off the most genius and unique dungeons out there. And the skeleton cards you seem to have succeeded making them fragile at one time and a big hassle at another also solidifies the necromancers as big bads and your graveguards are nice proper though guys as should be you are the game master I been looking for

Easygrin
22-05-2017, 16:19
So finally had a first game of silver tower it's indeed very nice and plays a lot faster then the old whq. Maybe we hen I'm done with hammerhall I should check if I can make a copy from all the cards you made here. Or could be nice to exspand upon hammerhall a big city has a lot of potential Silver tower feels really complete though

Thank you Easygrin although I will point out the Dungeon Saga photos are not mine but are Andys from his website. I'm considering taking my tiles to the convention, but as I need the tiles to complete it I think I may leave it till another year where its complete and fully brought up to speed.

Like you say it solidifies the thought of the necromancer as a meaner character than just what is on his card also what it brings to the table.

I think its coz I gone over the rules, hero abilities and background too much lol. I'm literally spending at least three days going over it in my head how it would look feel and play with it, hopefully all works out good. When will be seeing update on your blog then Easygrin, bet your stuff is coming along great.

Note UK Gaming Expo Weekend has just been and gone and I left my phone chargers in hotel ( being posted to me) until then I cant upload my photos of the weekend or of my latest work so until then you just have to wait hopefully not to long and hopefully worth the wait.

Hi all right I be posting my updates and games expo through out the day but right now I had to put this up which I hope he don't mind but it is because of him who has inspired me to do it.
Shas'El Tael has designed this brilliantly detailed artwork and rules for this tile that I must have for my dungeon.

230772

which has made me go and instantly buy this items.

230773 230775

The whole idea reminds me of dragon quest a fav of mine one of the first story mode monsters you have to face.

230774 230775

I thought this guy would suit the idea well I take the weapon away and may change the bottom into a genie style floating above the seal as if it hasn't fully come into this world and the mission is to send it back to the hell it came from

So I been busy of late, first off my kids school has a school fete coming up so I have volunteered my services to make a fold away mini crazy golf course,
Secondly Andy who I get back to in a minute, is looking to make new gaming board from his tiles but stacked like dragon chess or dungeon and dragons 1980's early 90s they brought out the cardboard four level board game.
and thirdly my local store has ask me to help out with the new intro slash 1000point gaming board for the new 40k, campagien starting in July.

I helped out before back when Hobbit Town got released. Below is what I contributed. The gws manager at the time used the main box and two scenery sets to make the Goblin network of pathways I did the back drop so to speak with the box game insert top left and display stand bottom left cutout.

13-06-2017, 21:29
That looks like soo much fun.... I had a game set for next sayer day but 3 out 4 people that were suppose to come just canceled well if they can't they can't and I spent the day doing something else try to further up my blog perhaps. The lava tiles look excellent and love that nurgle looking thing that you wanna turn into a room guardian or maybe you should have an sort amulet card which gives a really good buff but every time you enter a new room and you have to roll on it and at 1 or 6 it releases the monster like the vampire rings in the old ud expansion. The dark sword miniatures... what is the size on them? They are awesome. And I'm sure you'd be a great GM wish you lived in Holland. ..

Richard
14-06-2017, 00:22
bummer Easygrin sorry to hear that your game is postpone but am sure you find another part of the hobby to content yourself with. You read my mind in some ways while I thought that the nurgle beast would be a one off room I was thinking of a slannesh or khorne blade which gives a buff but a roll of a combat 1 suffer a wound, another idea was the daemon cannot dye, so the hero that kills it their weapon is posscessed get a buff but each turn take a test of wills, you lose your attack targets another hero immediately.

dark sword are 28 heroic but this guy stands 35 tall

that's sounds like a fun time for all hope your litte one gets spoilt rotten by the in laws.

Bare in mind that the male human stands 35 tall but other miniatures are not all standing but in different positions I would say that this one is one of the taller miniatures.

What I discovered is that I like the body shape for gaming purposes, weapons are to body scale, the bare heads made the models look odd helmeted ones worked better but still didn't look like the head and body matched. the other option I wanted to try was Gw vampire count skellies.

230761 230762
but as soon as I saw the stance of crouch down walking I knew the bodies wasn't for me nor the body size weaponry, sword same height as foot to neck of body. Although the weapon moulded to hand is great for modelling they wasn't for me, but the wooden round broken shields was what caught my eye in first place and looking at the heads I thought I try my third option
230767 230769 230768

Mixing the sprues with helmeted heads works well on the bodies for whst I wanted to get the look of. True I wanted a more bare bone model to represent the standard skeleton warrior but I believe the broken shields give that opinion that they are a ramshackle bunch of very old armour or rackling bones, last two pics are scale comparisons, please let me know what you think.

Brilliant! I did something similar with the WarGamesFactory skeletons. Tiny hands and feet but the poses are more varied than GW's.

Fantastic bit of kit bashing there. I thought gw ones were just fine until you showed me this...... Also I'm making a Bull centaur hero for silver tower any chance you could think up some good rules for me he is getting a 1 handed axe and a shield busy on the model but haven't found a suitable shield yet

Hi everyone last week did 75 hours of driving for work so didn't get a chance to do anything, but the week and half before that I went all out on the gaming intro board for my local gw store and these are all the pre photos that I have of the project. oh and moving two tons of sand and stone from the front to the back, 50 buckets a night for a week and half, only time I could do it was at like 8pm when I came home and the heat of the day had gone away lol.

So this table is to be used for a gaming intro and small 1000 point games but in my mind its to promote 8th ed of the game and the Space Marines and the Death Guard models. In my head the chaos invasion as come across a rocky dessert planet with 60% water, Nurgle has had a vision during the invasion he would like to make this planet a nurgle home by turning it into a new nurgle garden. the Water filtration plant next to the see once in nurgle hands can spread his ideas quickly across the land area toxicating the locals into plague zombies and sending his bacteria across the surface as well.

But the Plant is made next to the cliffs of the sea and the terrain the other side makes it impossibly slow and near hard to get to soo a aerial first wave attack is the only option, the imperials knew this and made extra care into have a lot of anti air batteries. so that's the idea hope the board gets the idea across.

So I cut out as much of the pipes and metal platforms as i could from this tile to make the decking

230776 230777
230778 230779

I used a cutting disc to get the cliff edge look and raised the in entire board with a foam base tiles used for under flooring, in the background the back two boards are an old dark vengeance board the store had, so am recycling parts they have.

230780 230781

So this is what i got done in 48 hours once i got going i didn't sleep that nite basically lol, the back of the board will be the edge of the plant so a big piece of terrain will go there, that's being made by the store manager with the latest scenery of industrial parts they have. the pipes either side will have connecting ends on the other tiles that will sit next to this one.
The decking i cut out i filled in the back part thought it would be more industrial looking if i did and it turn out well i think.
Is this tooooo much anti fire? to be honest i didn't like the one gun idea so thought stuff it, I make it look better lol. i be making three of these for this board. ok so the armour cladding I think working well to look more mechcannicus than imperial design
Also be doing two destroyed ones so made most of the other gun more on the destroyed part in the next post.

25-06-2017, 04:43
I wanted many of the pipes to be blown up after continue attack. the idea of the bits of plastic on the base around the broken pipe is when its sanded it make a rim of a crater. The second pipe is to have a connecting pipe glued on the other board to have unity with this board. same be for the other side as well.
230786 230787230792 230788
one mad man and a blow torch don't go together but my destroyed gun platforms turned out well I think, the first will have a column of smoke cotton wool coming out of it and the second will have a crashed hell drake into it.
230789 230790230791 230793
So on one board this will be the scenery to go on it and the long pipe will be on the other. and the crashed hell drake you will see in next post will be on the last tile. so plenty of gaming area but still a expressive sight of a aerial conflict of water filtration plant base being attack.
I was only allowed one hell drake so I made the most out of it to make two shot down, there be plenty of sand and crashed landing marks in the area when its sanded.
230794 230795

Richard
25-06-2017, 04:56
This is the most up to date photo, I think it has gone well all in all, one more working gunplaform is being made by the store manager as the idea I had of the water filtration plant basically its the Haemotrope Reactor end with the Sector Mechanicus Ferratonic Furnace in the middle to make a big cylinder.

230770 230771

The second hell drake I made out of the kit crashed landed into a gunplatform. I over did it with the glue coz the idea I had in my head is when painted the nurgle base helldrake oozes of bile and toxic acid that bubbles and starts to spread like bacteria vungus, making nurgles garden of this world. I don't know another weird idea in my head, that even in death nurgles children and war machines contribute in spreading a fungus garden of nurgles vision.

Right Photobucket have changed their terms of service and the free account I had no longer allows third party users. so they want me to pay

$399.99 a year or
£303.00 a year for me to host my photos on warseer.

me thinks not anyone know another photosite that I can use that allows third party hosting and not pay out the nose for

lol just checked I got 1345 photos on Photobucket wanna cry

so I have started re loading my photos its taking so long time, but I thought I would add my thoughts and ideas for the next board project I have been ask to build. Which is Andy's new multi layer gaming board. The boards that Andy has at the moment are a couple of years old and don't show the newer ranges that his company has to order.

Also when it comes to conventions space is nearer non existent to show all the possibilities his company can offer, now Andy had a rough in the air idea to make a stack up board and I wanted to help so went a step further and this is what I came up with.

Inspiration - teacake holder stand display piece
- Oven tray
- Warhammer quest tiles (instead of having one big board have multiple boards that fit together but interchangeable and swap around easy and yes the picture
is just to be easy to understand there are lines to show that each layer splits into four different sections).

So the pics are pretty straight forward the holes are for easy access to push the tiles up so they can be place for easy transport and swap them out for newer pieces or different designs for future use.

I went with the three and two layer so Andy can not play games on it but also two 2ft by 2ft display stands if space was tight is be able to show one or have one big display

Top Layer - ruins of a church or castle or a Manor, bar cellar
Middle Layer - castle scene, ruins scene dungeon scene tomb scene etc
Bottom Layer - castle or dungeon or cave or lava based tiles etc

230888 230889 230890 230891

I don't get this policy either. To go from free to £300 a year is astonishing. If they'd made it say £10 a year I think a number of folks would have invested, and they could slowly crank up the price. This is stupid from every point of view you can think of and I bet they will be dead as a company within a year.

I shifted all my pics to Imgur, it's really easy to do, the hard part is re-uploading them on here in the correct spot. Took me a good few hours. You could also upload your pics to Warseer itself, though with the recent attacks the site has had, many of those were lost too so no where is safe.

Yea that's what i'm doing straight onto warseer as you say no wheres safe so if it happens again it happens again I always have the photos on my computer. I also think they be under by the end of the year but so many companies use them in their advertising links etc that their are stranded unlike us.

Hi everyone had a nice week away in Cornwall, small one today but big post soon about everything thought about, work on about my new direction that's best for me and my family (Kids).

What I do have is the board I made for my local GWS has been painted and the fate of Kronos is already been play on and a pic of me and my kids playing a board game in Cornwall, little bit of a hint as to my new direction.

Hi all that follow this thread, so I have been quiet of late due to nicely put waiting on other people. The Multi-Layer board am still waiting for them to get back to us, although I don't want to rush their company is vastly in demand for bigger jobs, I want to get my hands on something physical but until then I can't. my good friend Andy from DMBgames has been in the wars not long after I seen him in Birmingham but he went into hospital, this was his post of facebook of late.


"I was discharged from hospital Wednesday night. I spent the evening vomiting and then had to call an ambulance Thursday morning. The doctors are not sure but I either had a small stroke, a small heart attack or overdosed on pain medication prescribed to me.
They will likely never know what it was that caused it but I had symptoms that could have been either. Unfortunately I am to heavy for the MRI machines and my shoulders are too wide for the CAT scan machine.
They think they have found a machine I'll fit in in Colchester but we are awaiting news on transport and if they can perform the scan.
It's going to take a bit of time and some rehab but I am already much better today than I was yesterday, and I walked around unaided, I have all the movement back in my right side.
Now just to figure out how to get better and stop it happening again.
Weight management is obviously needed so back to he gym and a personal trainer again, I'll have to find the money from somewhere.
So orders are still on hold for a few more days until I know What's happening and what the next steps are. I will be looking for someone local to help me fulfil the orders that are stacking up so if you are local or know anyone that is then let me know!"

So my tiles to finish my Floating board are on hold but as I said, the board is finished.

So Big news to me anyway, my kids have been very interested with my models and been wanting to hold, play with them etc and over the last month every evening we have been playing mini Warhammer quest games with the rules basically thrown out the window and me making it up and telling the story. But to break my heart our miniatures are not toys but fragile and while I don't mind when the arms breakoff or the model comes off the base because its being held too excitedly by a 3 or 5 years old, they do over doo the waterworks and say sorry even when I say its ok as they can be re glued.

So I went on ebay before holidays so that's two weeks ago now and wanted to buy a couple of Chibi Miniatures but found I could buy a starter box set just as cheap and with a lot of models quickly. The package arrive two days before we went on our cornwall holidays and lets just say it worked out well the kids loved the models am starting to grow on them and we have been having great games with no crying and re gluing after games being played. Holidays are over but we are still playing half hour of quest each night since and am really enjoying it, even got the wife to play coz the kids are playing it so another big bonus for me. So I have decided to put my floating tower aside at least till the tiles come to complete it and play with my group of friends on it. Am going to make a Chibi Warhammer Quest using super dungeon explore models, I have looked at Arcadia Quest (really like the orc and goblin models) and impact miniatures but Sde models I seem to like the most and they have a vast range of class monsters and heroes. I'm gonna be using the Sliver tower base rules as to the original to make the game easier for my kids to get a grip on playing before I introduce them to the original and other board games. and this also means I be looking at a new board but completely different to anything else I have made or anything else out there. this will be covered in the next couple of posts so please let me know what you think about my idea for Chibi Warhammer quest, I think it would work rather well.

03-08-2017, 10:23
I hope Andy gets well soon.

As for kids being over aggressive, have you thought about getting some Bones stuff? It's really cheap and the range is getting bigger every year and is nigh on indestructible. Not as detailed as other mediums it's still fairly good, especially for the bigger beasties such as the dragons, etc. Definitely something to consider...

Richard
03-08-2017, 20:14
hes on the mend and been given a heart monitor so slow going at the morning. I must admit I never thought of that I'm still working out prices and what I can buy, in a nutshell for 40 pound I can get 42 models ranging from two big, 2 evil lords lots of varied little guys and three heroes and it seems to be the same with most of the boxes they have. what I think I might do as they into chibi at the moment is use them and as they grow I start using them a way of gradually getting them to play the original game.

thanks daemonslave for that food for thought

Richard
04-08-2017, 21:25
Well Richard I think you can make a whq worthy boardgames out just about anything. Thank you for that i hope you do like it won be long before i put up my drawing sketches ideas for it may need some input on it.


Still looking forward to seeing your UD campaign rdy maybe painted and setup ��n As of this moment the only models i got are those few test pieces and the heroes so no where near having them ready, but my UD campaign is slowly taking shape i post them once am fully happy with them. and as for the undead theme i believe i can still do that with chibi finding these box options on their website. For the amount of variety and content for the price i think i be playing quicker this way than i would doing it the original way

hi all well a lot to say first I have picked up a zombie box set and ghost set from Sde for my chibi quest.

Having two very active kids with the models a good friend has sent some reaper models for my kids to play with and paint, i like to see them to try and break them lol

THANK YOU DAEMONSLAVE

ok so my board is going to be a 2ft by 2ft board that spins on a axle. each room is played like quest so each tile will be 7by7 inch squared and will be different each time.

themed board ideas are as follows

Forest themed.

232084

Dungeon themed

232083

Ice cavern themed

232085

Also long story if things went differently i wouldn't be on this forum but on Space Hulk here are my prototype design i did for Space Hulk

The board rotates so you sit still as you watch your progress around the board to the objective room either one tile or two tiles big.

True there will only be 7 to 8 tiles but each one will be unique and be mini quests quick hour sessions which is what my time would be what you think

Easygrin
18-08-2017, 23:26
Very intrigued by this how does it work? Is it kinda like part of a campaign or just loose missions in between? Sort off reminds me off the old classic ghost castle game which would be great with your dungeon design with the multiple layers kind off really fight your way up through 4 rooms and with a mini boss challenge in each room with a staircase to take you up to the next level

Daemonslave
19-08-2017, 08:54
I'm glad they liked them.

I too am intrigued by the board pieces idea. Am I understanding it correctly, you only have 2 or 3 sections in play at once, sections that have been passed get removed and can be used further ahead? How would this work in terms of having to move the central tiles? The peices that the warriors are currently on would have to be shifted quite regularly to stay in the centre of the table wouldn't they?

Easygrin
19-08-2017, 14:20
Well you would move up a layer then isn't it? Thought same 4 piece rooms on the board like ghost castle 4 room you move up to the second floor

Richard
19-08-2017, 14:58
Hi everyone sorry being driving to cornwall and back to wales so was a bit naggered yesterday but i'm here now to shed a little more light on the subject

The Central Tile would be the diorama piece it stays in the middle each side has a different image of said theme so forest one would just be trees another a tree either side and a full moon in the middle maybe a cave entrance etc.

the models move from one side of the board to the other, you sit down as the entire board is on a lazysusan two plates and ball barrings inside to allow it to rotate around.
I would only need 8 tiles so making 8 wont be a problem but the idea of removing it is great for doing it like sliver tower play or a longer quest. As I said before my circle of friends wont get long periods to play so this board is intent to play min quests and parts of a campaign which will add up rather than one go. the image next to my drawing I found on the internet while looking for pics of lazysusan. looks similar to help show in real life terms than my crap powerpoint images lol

some ways it is you could do a level boss at end and then play again being next level. the multi layer board is for Andy. I would LOVE to do one for myself but I know I cant for three reasons
A I dont have the floor space
B I have a wife
C I have a wife

so i'm just doing one 2ft by 2ft board.

Here re some pics hope they come across well with the idea.

232144 232145 232146 232147

Same as Warhammer Quest starting tile then pick cards up to reveal the next tile to be place down so each game the path would be different. then when it comes to the objective room I can have the option of a big one like we have for the game or it could be a small one.

232148 232149 232152

Hope this still sparks your interest and explains a bit more.

Well I guess now one can say that am not liking this idea about doing Chibi Quest anymore after seeing what came in the post this week.

232229

2x Forgotten King Core Boxes
1x Arcadia Quest Core Box
Deeproot Rider
Daemonkin Candy
Watermage
Kitty Candy one
6x Ghosts from the Witch on pumpkin coach box
Zombies and heroes from the Zombie Town Box
8 of the original Core box set Sde Heroes (massive difference in height to the other heroes pic comparisons when I remember to do them.

232230 232231 232232

Now for the Forest enemies picture here am using them for decoration if I do a forest themed board, I wont be using them as actual baddies more like dungeon traps and 3d board decoration.

232233

Heroes and baddies in my new Tidy foam inserts from my model case that I got from Andy at UK Games Expo and yes I will paint them up (soon)

232234 232235

I was um-ming and arr-ing about buying Arcadia Quest as due to size comparison pics have been scarce and inbetween on net but I'm glad I did do it. The orcs are just a little over the heroes heads in height but not to much which is what I wanted and the goblins are perfect. Along with these three Bad Boys nice sculpts too

232236 232237

And three more boxes should arrive in the post this week fingers cross.

Richard
05-09-2017, 04:52
Hello these came on Saturday so my collection is quite large now lol but except for one or two boxes more I have got what I want to be able to say i'm happy to start painting/making the board now.

232289 232290 232291

Another zombie box or two and the emerald valley expansion for scenery purposes and am done for now.

I'm hoping I don't change my mind as new ideas keep popping up in my head but am gonna start looking at doing the forest board idea mainly because of the amount of 3d scenery I got from Forgotten King and emerald valley once I get it. more in next post on the concept idea. hope it works

Yes everything am doing is for Warhammer quest, the chibi miniatures are to be used for Warhammer quest with friends but mainly my children, the avatars of war heroes I've got, my orc conversions and my experimental skeletons I still have and will complete them in due course. I've found that by doing super dungeon explore miniatures I've manage to assemble a large quanity in a short amount of time and for less than 100 pounds including postage. yes all you see I've manage to collect from ebay auctions and a very lucky find at a boot sale. for me to just make 10 skeletons using gws and mantic box would cost me 25-30 pounds which is a quarter of what it cost me for what I've got with the chibi collection.

As I said the floating board is complete just waiting on the tiles to put them together. I enjoy making terrain boards so i'm wanting to do another which has not been done or at least I cannot find anything like my ideas on the web anyway. This board i'm making will be used for quest for mini quests and a change of pace play. Another reason is I hope to have it ready for 2018 Games Expo which I be going up again to be part of Andy's Team for Dmb games. its to so what you can achieve with these fantastic tiles he has lava, cavern, dungeon, gothic castle, eqypt style tomb so I wanted to do another theme with these tiles and two came to mine which was forest or a ice cavern. I will be doing a Dungeon board. the great thing about this board I thought up is that it is interchangeable. the idea remains the same but the theme can be change.


Would love to see you p as in some off those aswell.
Not sure what this means

The rain of the storm battered the stone slabs of the graveyard relentlessly. The Sounds of the howling winds were faint mumurs the further the companions crept down the dust filled steps, untouched in decades. until now...

The catacombs were candle lit, the dancing flames created shadows flickering across the narrow stairway. The light footed elf notched a arrow into her bow as the Bretonnian Knight kept his shield arm raised in case of an ambush from the dark. The Sister Cleric came last reciting a prayer.

The weekend came and gone, rain rain and more rain fell no garden, no outing and no wife (at work) so while the cat is away, the house becomes our playground.

How do store it it looks massive

Its is lol but I made sure the height was just right to fit into rectangle plastic boxes, the ones you can get in poundstretcher 3 for 10. the current ones built all fit into one box nd I got room for four boxes in my wardrobe and if in need of more space, the boxes fit under the bed aswell.

Hello to all, still moving along here with project, slower than I wanted but have progress, the three tier board for my mate andy is in final draft waiting on the laser cutting company to get back to me here's the final draft image there will be two of these which will stand next together to make bigger boards.

As with the spinning board forest themed idea i've been looking at ways which allows me long term to expand into different ideas, so which I do as basic will allow me in the future to try different more advance ideas.

232905

ok that sounder better in my head than reading back to myself but here it goes.

each tile will have three layers, the outer being the actual tiles that andy makes and a piece of mdf in the middle. This will be the principle of the bottom and middle layer. the top layer will be just tiles.

Now for my first challenge I want to do the old fashion spike pit, so the middle layer I be cutting away a section to add depth under the tile layer which will allow me to either model or place the spike pit card piece into the slot. the underneath of the tile will have a magnet glued to it so using a magnet pen I can pick up the tile with ease during the game to expose the trap.

By making multiple holes like this will allow me to change traps each quest rather than the players knowing where the traps are I can change which one goes off on each quest by jotting it down on notes so players don't think I'm just setting it off on purpose they can see I pre plan a specific trap to go off for that said tile.

232900 232901 232902

232903 232904 232906

For future ideas I always wanted to try using model water, so by cutting away part of the tile I can plan to make a river lake themed tile we see how this progress as we go on but fingers cross.

Glad to see your still going full at it marvelous idea this spinning board. Curious how you will deal with the water rules wise

Richard

Curious how you will deal with the water rules wise

if I do a river troll event then the troll while in the water, his movement wont be effected but his attacks to players on land be -1.
if a player stumbles into water one square from land tile -1 movement or if he does a face plant or knock into the water by a beast attack loses two actions I don't know haven't thought about it much....lol

Another Note Simon and I have nearly wrap up the design for the middle part of the 3D board so I be getting that soon and be able to start working on the different "theatre backdrops" with different bits I've picked up.

Well I was right, what did I say

I go to all the trouble of making my own cards and their charts and what do gws go and do

Preorder 11 Nov, advertised in the November issue of White Dwarf:

£15 ($25)

41 double-sided chaos adversary cards for Silver Tower and Hammerhal.

Includes monsters from the original games plus new monsters. Stats are on the front, behaviour tables are on the reverse.

Also includes Mighty Adversaries (bosses, such as Chaos Lords).

Arr well I enjoyed making them at least

Great little gathering you got there looks great to be there. Is this completely a game of your own making now? With the whq rules you made I mean

Richard
05-11-2017, 21:42
Hey Easygrin, to play simple quick quests yes, rules for what models I have or want to use yes, to start doing my own campaign yes, having the time to do more than what I have is slow going with life. but far to say yes I can play a quest game from start to finish complete yes.

COMING SOON: New Foes for your Quest

233242

Warhammer Quest is about to get even better. Whether youíve conquered the Silver Tower countless times or youíre a mere tourist in Hammerhal, youíll want to check out the new Chaos Adversaries cards, available to pre-order next week.

If youíve not tried it yet, Warhammer Quest is a game for 2-5 players that allows you to pick your favourite hero and undertake epic adventures in the Mortal Realms; from the twisting labyrinth of the Silver Tower to the mysterious threats that gather beneath Hammerhal. With tons of enemies, encounters and scope for expansion, no two games of Warhammer Quest need be the same.

The Chaos Adversaries cards are great for both existing Warhammer Quest players and Warhammer Age of Sigmar players looking for more ways to use their models. Youíll be able to add 41 new adversaries to your games, from terrifying Tzaangor Skyfires to packs of chittering Nurglings.

233244 233243

Thereís great potential for those Game Masters who like designing their own campaigns, too, particularly when combined with the extra heroes from the Warhammer Quest App; perhaps you could write a campaign where a coven of Chaos Sorcerers attempt to bring down the citadel of a wizard-hating Deathbringer, or a mighty warband of orruks attempt to raid a vicious nest of skaven for a particularly valuable artefact (or maybe they just fancied smashing up some rats with their mates).

The Chaos Adversary cards are available next week to pre-order, while both Silver Tower and Shadows over Hammerhal are available right now online and in your local store Ė get your copy today, and get ready for hours of adventure in the Mortal Realms.


Should be Fun

Hey Richard first off all the hero card's looks ace. Im liking the bull centaur one I have a friend who is making mine I hope he comes out as good as yours. I'm loving the chaos adversary cards like that they included marauders only problem is the look I gave my khorne guys maybe a bit too much like I had in mind for a pack of marauders. Will have to rethink this in its entirety. Also Im a bit stuck in the middle as I wanna try make both the old who and the new ones separate entity's but still be able to use monsters from both ;). Again your cards are great but your work always is hope I can get mine soon.

Richard
19-11-2017, 15:18
Im a bit stuck in the middle as I wanna try make both the old who and the new ones separate entity's but still be able to use monsters from both ;).

If it makes you feel any better we are in the same boat Easygrin. I want to make the original, from scratch, however it would be lost in my community where time is rare and to make a proper game you need planning and a lot of time as a group together. I don't get those chances and the group that I am glad to call friends never played the first so be a lot to take in first time round, be a month between games, then play but remember it again.

By doing it in the new style or my style combining the both, we can have quick hour quests at a touch of a button, with streamline play which can be made harder or easier depending on what you add. If it helps start and stay in one frame of mind, set a goal once you complete it, then try and complete it in the other gameplay frame.

Arrived yesterday my latest Super Dungeon Explore purchases means besides two green box expanisons am done getting chibi miniutures until the legends kickstarter becomes public to buy. the elder whirling vortex looks good for a terrain feature, what it will be you have to wait and see, screamers are gonna play a big part in my idea of the terrain under the board being part of the Tzeentch void world.

Just been posted on Warhammer community the December holidays releases and White Dwarf mentions this

"Warhammer Quest fans are particularly well-served by this month’s White Dwarf, with the beginnings of a whole new adventure in Shadows over Hammerhal to get stuck into using the 12 free cards as well as new rules for mercenary allies. Combined with the new Chaos Adversary Cards, it’s a great time to return to Hammerhal…"

Sound promising 12 free cards with pack. thou doesn't say all 12 are for Quest, me thinks its something to do with a skaven from earlier post of skaven invasion but wait and see.

Hi All so this came in the post for me this week and its the centre structure for the spinning board. Now all these were cut out by Simon of Blotz Company to my design idea, its a simple look but it allows some playability with making 3D terrain.

233351233352233353233354233355

Now yes the walls look massive compared to the trees but just to make sure its clear this is not the final look. The trees will be touching the top of the board as am raising the height of the floor up by three tiles. This allows me to play with making traps and river bed ideas for future tiles. The trees will be lined up against the walls and full tree place in the middle thinking of having few one trees on the actual playing tiles to give different depths but we have to see.

233356233357233358233359233360

The great thing here for me its starting to come together physically rather than just talking about it. And I have had the Quote for the multi level board for Andy and its good and we got the go ahead, I have been given a time line of about 10 days for it to be cut and just wait on delivery by company to my work place so its all go. Yea

233361233363 233367233368233365233366

Something I have been playing with is that my board is up in the air, so to speak allows me to not only play with the idea of having terrain features underneath the board but make different levels of playing on the board. At the moment this will be a dead end room, waiting on tiles to make the steps but you can get the idea of what you can do with this concept from the group pics.

Hi all so I'm using the cards I made for games night (which was yesterday, these were made in the morning) I will redo these no happy with the font of word layout so will have a bash in the week. But here for you all to see
233371

When I met Simon in person from Blotz Company at a Swansea Convention I purchase his fountain and finally got round to making it.

233372233373233374
233375233376233377233378

Gonna put a fountain in the middle either otherworldly miniatures fountain of Zealot Miniatures Twisting Catacombs Fountain not sure yet. and the dice for my Gws game night and I put together my player dashboards so seeing how other people use them will be great.

233380233379

Richard
25-11-2017, 04:02
Hi all so I had an truly fantastic time at my local Gws store for Hobby Night, from 4pm - 8pm we manage to play 4 50mins to hour quests, which was exactly the way I wanted it to be. the first game was a learning curve for all four players, who have played D&D but never Warhammer Quest, A lot of banter and working together, well I say that one game the group decided to go against their leader make their own path. There was a lots of on the spot plays where a dice roll decided the outcome, One major feature was chucking the dwarf across the room just to get him into battle quicker was great.

The dashboards did what they were suppose to deliver and more, what I did discover it that no one was use to a dice box so rolling was done on the table and I didn't have a section on the dash board for kill count to track the renown, so watch this space as I got idea on how to improve the dashboard going forward, if in the next game night the dice box is not use.

233385233386233383233384233381

The guys really enjoy, they all agreed its quick to learn, harder to master which is what they wanted. All the games were energetic, we started sitting but as the rolls and baddies kept coming, climaxes in each dungeon we felt compulsory to stand up and get into it as you see from pics every other one were sitting, standing, sitting lol.

233382233387233388233389233390

What I also learnt from playing with the group is seeing how the terrain is used by gamers, I know that sounds silly but me placing the scenery with family members and seeing it with players that do play miniatures and role play games was way different, made me see the scenery pieces in a different light so to speak. For one thing the scenery pieces were in adequate to its surrounds they seem bare standing out like a sore thumb rather than being small focal points to the board story. I believe I need to make the crypts then more of a small diorama thinking of adding like a low wall around the back add bits of stone candles spider web between the crypt and the wall. So again same with the dashboard watch this space going forward.

That's what I love about a game you love you can always learn, add and improve to make whatever game you play that much more interesting and fun to play

Richard
25-11-2017, 04:11
Hi All, small insight as to what I want to achieve with the forest board. My Job allows me to travel a good part of the country mainly the non urban part and mainly country rural areas. Why I want to do a forest board I believe somewhere in my sub conscious, the trees will be a feature but as for the forest floor I manage to take some pics of when I saw it that's the image am looking for.

233391 233392 233393

I love autumn with the colours and I see in my head the Warhammer world map the forest of Drakwood is never lush greens of athrel loren always dark shadowy and dark, so I will be trying to capture that look where the terrain is leaf covered, rocks and ruins half hidden from the foliage and leaf carpet so to speak. Look at the first pic and you can see a stone wall that's frame by leaves but as to what it is gives all kinds of ideas.

Richard
29-11-2017, 04:06
Hi all so I finally got a few hours (9 - midnight) to get some much needed modelling, gluing time together. 7 tile pieces are now rock faced up underneath bringing my board up to 12 complete tiles and my last four to be started.

233406 233407 233408

233409

During my Gaming night at gws I picked up, long over due Sliver Tower Hero Cards and the New Chaos Adversary Cards Set. Why I picked the sliver tower card set up is because they no longer due it in Gws, why i'm not sure but i'm guessing its because their are missing the Branchwych and the white dwarf addition character no doubt their putting the new cards in Shadows over Hammerhal Design or going out on a limb with the new addition of Skaven mentionings the next instalment. BUT this sounds too organised for Gws and all the skaven even the basic puny ones are now exotic adversaries so I pass on that idea.

The New Chaos Adversary Cards I loved the design artwork and that the game is getting continuously supported but most of the cards in the pack we already got, their the booklets of Sliver Tower, Hammerhal. and the new ones are basically rinse and repeat. I don't want to put a downer to this but I rather be honest than lie. I think its because I been doing my cards am really looking to my make each model unique and different rules wise and allow different characters to give a boost to stats when their on the board with certain models. So a very easy model early on can change to a harder challenge later on using the same models.

but several of the new cards don't have anything but a champion, musician and St Bearer upgrades. Which are all the same I mite add +1 movement +1 attack (champion only) +1 to vigour((Life). The only new cards I like are the actual chaos ones,

I was just expecting more, seeing AOS and 40K getting major benefits and thought go into everything I just was expecting the same I suppose (I know those lines are Gws lifeblood but still).

Oh and word of warning the Chaos Warriors are mental!
2D6 turn up with 5 wounds, 4+Save with 3 Dice attack rolls basic! yes 3, hitting on 4+. Halberds same but hit on 3+ and those with shields get a bonus ignore on 6 throw before actual save throw.

Anyway the new white dwarf is out Friday so more quest goodiness (I hope)

Easygrin
29-11-2017, 21:46
Love that they are doing this but I miss Slaanesh for me the 4 Chaos gods complete each other. And really like the idea of the marauders but they are going to need some big time converting or they have to release new models. Same with some of the skaven or the chaos warriors they just feel super tiny compared to what are suppose to be normal sized humans they are barely bigger than the dwarves. Back to the 4 chaos gods I'm OK with them adding more just don't like the replacing. I would love for you to add to these cards Richard :) make some rules for chaos dwarves with bull centaurs and hobgoblin and the Orruks (Orcs)

Richard
29-11-2017, 22:05
I would love for you to add to these cards Richard :) make some rules for chaos dwarves with bull centaurs and hobgoblin and the Orruks (Orcs)

I'll make a start in the new year Easygrin with that, sounds like fun. As to the size comparison I can't see them changing the skaven as they are what they been stamped for smaller but have the numbers. Slaanesh I do really believe that they will do a new quest box in the new year and it be just like the sliver tower which release massive amounts of wow for tzeentch but it be for slaanesh. the Skaven pack I believe is a filler to keep us going. skaven is not a best seller as to the chaos gods as you say and they need a massive hit to bring back the sales pitch so I see it that skaven white dwarf filler then new year watch out!

Richard
03-12-2017, 13:07
Hi all will do a big post later this week but just a quick one, has anyone else notice that the sliver tower hero cards pack, the heroes skills are different to the heroes on the app version. Wanted to ask as I never seen this mention on any of the forums.

Easygrin
03-12-2017, 13:12
No I got rid off the app soon as I got the cards

Richard
03-12-2017, 17:46
Well I did a full check these are the heroes they have different to my app. What they done is on the app they have two skills but have combine them into one skill on the actually cards and given them an extra skill each. What I don't understand is when the Slaughter Priest came out in white dwarf the month of 2016 which gorechosen came out it has the app skills on the card which was

Slaughter Priest
Hackblade, Wrath-Hammer and Blood Boil(6+)
Area 6+ To Hit Damage D3
Sacrifical Rite and Slaughters Boon Add 1 to the result roll if you have slain an adversary this turn.

Now it doesn't have blood boil and slaughters boon they put a skill called Blood Bind roll D6 the adversary moves where you want roll a 6 it takes wounds. they also altered Sacrifical rite on this card that if the adversary you slayed to active the skill heal D3 wounds if you use blood bind on the dead adversary first then the D3 turns into 3 wounds heal.

Aspiring Deathbringer
GoreAxe, Skullhammer
Bloody Frenzy (6+) attack with both weapons one after the other same or different adversaries
Slaughter incarnate which basically if the use bloody Frenzy this turn you can do it again on a (5+) then on a (4+) so on so forth.

Now they combine both skills into one Blood Frenzy use it again on (4+) everytime, given him a new skill of kill a adversary move 2 squares.

233444233445233446233447233448
233449233450233451233452233453

From what I can gather on all the cards they were able to combine the two skills they had together and put an extra skill on instead, the Ork Drummer has a new attack and his war beat can give another hero a dice that turn.

The Elf prince get a free move when he explores before he didn't, both the lizardmens skills where the same practically now he can allow a player to make a action out of turn sequence.

I believe its for the better, but no knowledge nor this being brought up on other forums.

White Dwarf Dec is here and its alright I was hoping for more with the Skaven mention. its cool the way they done it so games cant see it if they don't want to, just for GMs eyes. extra bits great nothing that has made me go wow. I got all the deathblow books so most of the info they put down pars on the same lines to me. 8/10

"A NEW QUEST BEGINS IN WHITE DWARF

Matt: Since the release of Warhammer Quest Silver Tower, we’ve published a steady stream of new Heroes and Adversaries for the game in White Dwarf (and many more have appeared in the My Hero app and, more recently, the Chaos Adversaries Cards pack, of course), all of which have proven really popular and players continue to ask for more new rules.

233540 233539

The release of Warhammer Quest Shadows Over Hammerhal earlier this year added an important new element to the game – the Gamemaster, opening up the possibility of a much wider gaming experience. With Christmas on the way and with plans for a special December issue of White Dwarf being discussed around the office, we thought it would be the perfect opportunity to unlock some of that potential, with new rules, new cards and new activities in Hammerhal. (Possible spoiler: Some of these might involve your heroes ending up in a dungeon somewhere.) So, that’s what we did. Dave Sanders and Tom Merrigan from the Studio produced a set of new rules and new activities for Warhammer Quest for us, following on from the rules in Shadows Over Hammerhal, plus 12 cards representing new treasures, skills and achievements. You can find the cards, new rules for two kinds of Mercenaries (the Freeguild General and the Gunmaster) and the first part of the new activities in Cinderfall in the December issue, on sale now. There’ll be more to come over the next couple of months, too.

But what about Warhammer Quest Silver Tower, you say? Well, no spoilers on that front, but play your way through the new adventures ahead and you might just find there’s a connection waiting to be uncovered…"

Hi all so I just spent the last week doing the next two cards for my Undead Themed Dungeon, I wanted to get as much detail on the cards as possible to get the Monsters I wanted to represent in my dungeon. Vampires

Now their both Vampires but I wanted to express how different vampires can be in the world of Warhammer, and it would be boring to have two identical styles. I have tried my hand at a Blood Knight a lower level Vampire who is a Knight version and deals out melee attacks and a Vampire Lord which has been around far longer and has knowledge of dark arts so his card is a mixture of both a melee fighting monster and part spell caster.

I had to change the layout on the card to put the amount of abilities onto each card but not to much( why it took me so long to do was this part)

233541 233542

To evil? Strong I mean or a good challenge at different levels do let me know.

Since doing these I manage to pick up Greyfax off ebay now this image isn't mind it was the best non-painted image I could get off the net

233545 233544 233543

I'm thinking of smoothing off the skull details on the legs so their look more knee high boots, using a head from the sisters of battle flying angels and putting the hat on it as the model has got a bionic eye which is not the image I want for mine. as for the shoulder pads I remove them I think I try green stuff and make the cloak surround the shoulders like the image to try to use the neck part as a brooch holding it on smooth the pipes and make them a chain look. Also I like the crossbow idea but a pistol would be easier to do, I'd also change the empty hand for a natural hand so it looks like a wrist guard and not full armour. I think I got this model lying around some way see what the size comparison is with the darksword miniatures and go from there.

Hi all this was posted up on another forum but I thought this would interest a lot of you a podcast about Warhammer quest sliver with James Hewitt

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-ae7fh-7f12ab

1.24.15 start of sliver tower conversation but the whole podcast is a good listen too. James Hewitt help design the rules for the game

Hi all got so news for you all both on quest and outside of quest another project which is taking shape.

Firstly my designs for my multi level board have come to life. The laser cutting company have finally sent me the test pieces (3 stack high board) and the metal supports that will be welded to the underneath of them. I sent them in turn to the bending company we use so I should get them next week.

233595 233596

Secondly when Necromunda Underhive got release I knew I wanted to try the game having miss out in my youth. I have a good friend in Newport who was broght up on Necromunda like I was on Warhammer quest. So I wanted to try my hand at making a 3d sci fi board. So I decided to have a bash at the first level in the game that was brought to my attention in white dwarf.

233594

Now I didn't want to make a Steel Bunker style board as you got in the games board tile. when I first saw this image I honestly thought it was gantryways and the black was empty space which the models could fall to their deaths not walls.
Anyway I decided I would make a few changes to the board but nothing drastic. I wanted to make different levels. reading the background in the white dwarf, I found I like the idea that part of the board would be covered in the industrial pipes, these would run under the gaming level which I then had the ides of raising the whole board. I use my space hulk tile design I maded, rinse and repeated it. Changed certain areas to add 3d height to the board and I'm happy to reveal part of the board the rest is 80% design done.

Richard

233598 233599 233600 233601

233602 233603

233604 233605

Now like I said I have change the first level board a little just to get different heights but the playing area is exactly the same. the massive holes in between the playing areas will have a pipe systems from Gws. The last two boards are in their final design stages. the top right hand I have changed the most in terms of look as I wanted to do gantry way which the pathway encircle gws exhaust pipes going straight up so in the gaps i'm putting the half circle terrain with the pipes on top in the gaps. I hope it turns out well, looking the way Simon has done it I think I did turn out just right. Now this was a custom job done for me Simon does have a more realistic board that he sells on his website that is ideal for Necromunda and other Sci Fi games, I posted that up in my next post

Hi all, got some news from Andy at Dmb Games for you all to know.

HE BE LAUNCHING A KICKSTARTER IN JANUARY!!!!!!!

It will involve the new resin sets, as core sets, but also three original scenarios, with maps, encounters and all the usual bits you expect. These will be available as add-ons and as pledge level with core sets to enable you to build the maps needed to play the Scenario.
He will be providing the scenario's rules free, but with appendices that contain the information on attribute, and skill checks, as well as... monster references and system specific information for at least D&D 5.ed and Pathfinder. Who knows some others might get unlocked as we go along.
Stretch goals will include new accessories, new tiles and perhaps even a new set, all in Resin, depending upon what goal we reach.
Just thought id let you all know so you can start saving your pennies and spreading the word around about it as well.
If anyone has any suggestions on what they would like to see as stretch goals or even pledge levels, send me a message or pop over to his facebook page or website and let him know and he mite see if its possible to include it.

Here are some more updates from his facebook page

His Tomb floor tiles are available now and he be expanding the Tomb range in 2018, with a core set and room sets, and some very Tomb like accessories, Sphinx head statues, embalming rooms and all sorts! Keep an eye out in the new year!

233612 233614

Andy also does a wide range of Sci-Fi Tiles. This is the 3x3 Centre Grate Rivet Tile.. His Sci-Fi Range will have a core set that will be available in the new year with 16 3x3 floor tiles of 5 different verities and 32 wall pieces and 4 doors. He also have plans for a corridor set based on a 2x2 grid so you can easily tell rooms and corridors apart and a special tile set that has pipes, closed and open hatches and all sorts of cool stuffs this will be available in the resin infused plaster to start and moving over to resin later in the year.

233613

This is the biggest tile he currently does. Itís a 6x5 tile with a cross motif. It makes an amazing Centre piece to a room, and has all sorts of uses from traps to chapel layouts. It's available over at his website, and if you like the image painted differently when you buy it send him a message and request custom colours.

Hi all so I redone the Vampire Lord Event Card and I tried my hand at a skeleton champion which I'm calling Black Knights.

233638 233636

and a teaser for Christmas Day for all players but a treat for original Questers. My favourite baddie at the end

233637

Hopefully I do him...it justice

25-12-2017, 12:04
Merry Christmas to all that read this post, two presents for all but mainly me lol. As promise my Big baddie redone from the original

The Dread King from the expansion Catacombs of Terror (I chat more about the card later in the day to explain my thoughts on how I redid him).

I also had time to add a small addition to the skeleton range of characters.

233657 233656

the multi level board as had its sides bended and will start the welding and production in the new year

233658

and I had a lot of pics of my finsihed Necromunda Underhive board I design. Made by Simon of Blotz i be picking them up later in January when I see him at the convention
from there I be adding Gws scenery and on to the next phase - GAMING!

233665 233666

So I wanted to try and keep as much of the original as possible, The detailed information that the adventure and rulebook had in descriptive text Is great to read and work with in trying to bring this character back too life (no pun intended)

Now the way I always saw the Dread King is that he is chair bound to the throne of power. He never leaves the throne for it supplies a lot of his power, being a liche lord he studied the dark arts and necromancy, but I always thought that he is frail physically now. And I couldnít get it into my head that he was modelled in a chair and was in every room sitting in a chair (being young at the time) So I always believed he use his magic to move his magical spirit around the catacombs and that is what the warriors encountered out of the throne room itself.
So I was able to use the original rules for placing the Dread King and subtly changed what happens when the heroes encounter the king in a room. I also wanted the throne to be powerful so its healing ability would work for this situation. Being the head boss like the gaunt summoner I didnít want to make the vigour higher than the summoner as thatís the way Iím trying to make new characters is off the vigour chart that Gws is using in ST and SOH. So being a spirit and halving his vigour for small rooms I believed would be a good idea so its not as hard as the last event but is a powerful encounter to come across.

His behaviour chart was another thing I wanted to really put effect into as he hasnít got one to go off, but like I said the amount of descriptive writing through all the undead, vampire count army books have given me a well of information that I can use. His chart I wanted it to be just spells from a powerful necromancy book as he is in a throne so I thought ruling wise unless heís adjacent to a model he attack combat but when not he can cast spells and have a missile attack each turn. I included the subtract 2 form his chart rolls from the Gaunt Summoner rules I thought would work well like I said about his spirit being powerful but not as powerful as the real thing encountered in the objective room.

Now the Tomb Guardians I wanted them to be special to the king and not a separate card where he goes they go etc. and I never thought of the king having a army of personnel guards but he raised four really powerful all kings or great knights from their burial grounds and controls them to be his personnel guard to protect him while the other skeletons make up the bulk of his army. Again I didnít want another card so I place them on his card but like a automatic warrior so there are not needed to act on a chart. All they do is each turn move and attack simple no messing around. I also wanted to so how powerful the king is but not waste a action or a turn raising any tomb guardians back from being slain by the heroes. So again I did like a automatic action which is like a behind the scenes power of the king where when a guardian fails, a wave of his hand and their return fresh to the fold.

In the original and back in the day of Gws dispel dice was used strongly and the king was well known for this so I wanted to represent this, I got the idea from the chaos lord mighty adversary card with his armour but I thought it would also work for magic based missile attacks. Lastly for his abilities I really wanted to somehow use the old Terror Rules to represent how powerful the king is but every thought of a rule (5 different ways) wouldnít work so again I used the gaunt summonerís ability to lose a action dice which I believed worked out well.

Lastly I wanted his behaviour chart to be unique, each number a different situation to happen to represent the different spells at his dissposal. With his subtract 2 from his chart as well I knew I needed the 5 and 6 rolls to be really evil or cunning so hopefully the chart and the rules I put together truly makes for a good end baddie and do justice to the original.

OK Richard I have been superbusy lately so no time to check in. First off all merry Christmas to you and your lovely family. I love all your hero cards hadn't seen the Barbarian before and I love it really brings back the original. Also the witch hunter is great as for the difference between the pistols and the crossbow I think you need to add more cards to have a whole grp of witch hunters amother melee one with a big silver sword and one that does signs or just a warrior priest or another character. The Ud cards really seem to be a complete dungeon now the Vamps are great I don't think they are too powerful the vamp lord should create a uh ooh feeling when he steps on the board and be able to take a player out. As for the dreadking I agree that's it's weird he appears in his astray form in a chair maybe have 2 models one with skin and just have him appear to mess around like the summoner does and the rotting Ud skeleton stuck in his chair in the final room. Looking forward to seeing more of him. My camera broke soon as I got it fixed I will start updating my own blog

Hi Easygrin, glad to hear from you


I love all your hero cards hadn't seen the Barbarian before and I love it really brings back the original. Also the witch hunter is great, as for the difference between the pistols and the crossbow I think you need to add more cards to have a whole grp of witch hunters amother melee one with a big silver sword and one that does signs or just a warrior priest or another character.

That would be a good group of warriors to see, I was thinking of just doing treasure cards with different weapon upgrades but different witch hunters with different experinces and skills, weapons etc would be a interesting idea.


The Ud cards really seem to be a complete dungeon now the Vamps are great I don't think they are too powerful the vamp lord should create a uh ooh feeling when he steps on the board and be able to take a player out. As for the dreadking I agree that's it's weird he appears in his astray form in a chair maybe have 2 models one with skin and just have him appear to mess around like the summoner does and the rotting Ud skeleton stuck in his chair in the final room.

Yes the vampire lords I wanted to have two different ones the vampire lord I mite change it to no shooting but maybe a vampire bite to stun and another riade the dead not sure.
and yes 'm thinking of doing two models for the dread king model wise I put in my next post.

Speaking of which are these any good to what you were thinking

233667 233668

26-12-2017, 19:10
Yes those are a perfect start. Really cool how behaviour roll's can make groups of weaker monsters actually more threatening to a party than stronger ones

Yes those are a perfect start. Really cool how behaviour roll's can make groups of weaker monsters actually more threatening to a party than stronger ones

great glad you like them.

Now I been doing research into Chaos Dwarfs from various websites, from what I understand the Sorcerers are the highest command which the chaos dwarfs follow with unthinking loyalty are excellent defensive base warriors heavily armoured with shield and armour. they way of life is very structure and simple rather than spontaneous, everyone knows their place and plan of attack before hand etc.

So rather than lots of different tables, i'm gonna try doing a same table but change the rules for each warrior, so the plan of attack is the same but each dwarf with a different weapon has a different ability. All Chaos Dwarves wear heavy armour so I thought an extra life point would work in favour and if armed with a shield a short of block ability, if hit roll a 6 the hit is ignored.

I have made 4 cards 2 warrior based, the standard troops and the more elite I think from what I found out and to missile troops the forgeworld one and the classic Blunderbuss. Easygrin are these any good for you or anyone with knowledge of Chaos Dwarves or thinks this style works card wise game wise etc let me know what you think

I bought the chaos adversary cards and I love em. Already have big conversion ideas for the slaves of darkness cuz the old chaos warriors I have are a little to small and wimpy compared to the models. And the marauders aswell. The skagen I all got all ready but need to be rebased to the circular bases khorne and Nurgle I have most aswell but not finished just missing slaanesh and the beastmen where are the beastmen? They should have been in here as they are chaos aswell and chaos dwarves of course I kinda get why they not included but that will be fixed.

Me too. I'm thinking of using the blood warriors? the full armoured ones and swapping the heads and shields when I come to doing them.


where are the beastmen? They should have been in here as they are chaos aswell

makes you wonder?


and chaos dwarves of course I kinda get why they not included but that will be fixed.

Well that's why I thought I was doing them for you lol and you haven't mention the four I done? they any good?

Easygrin
31-12-2017, 14:20
Yes those are fantastic I just meant why GW didn't include them. Will be going on with making more BC just need to think how many and how the group will be put together and I got 30 Russian alternative dwarves for my old whq ju add the need a good plan to make Hobgoblins I will be happy with. I've ordered the parts for my chaos warriors just needed proper body's got loads of chaos bits. As for the beastmen I am pretty invested in their models about 30 gorse 20 ungors 10 bestigor a bunch of minotaur (love making those) 2 shame 1warbos's and 's doom bull. So was hoping to include them slaanesh would be nice but only have Sigvald and cool as he is can always make a hero card for him.
Best wishes for the new year Richard

Hi all first post of the new year, as we speak my next order of tiles is being sorted and I had a go at tackling the Bull Centaur Event Card for Easygrin but for all to use, hope it grasps the character I believe a Bull Centaur is gaming wise.

233693 233692

Also January White Dwarf is Skaven Themed no new characters all adversaries are in the Chaos Adversary pack but their have also done a alternative version to use the boxed miniatures you got already.

Easygrin
05-01-2018, 16:38
The card is on again great I feel the Bull Centaurs need to have a ow shot factor not those basterds again. I bought December's white dwarf today. They said January's was in tomorrow... been back to painting every night on my friends set he is suppose to be making my custom cards and casting tiles to make a 3d dungeon. But he hasn't done much yet hehe. OK so the January one is with the skaven? Interesting good thing I need but a few models to complete their chaos adversary section the bad thing it's the most expensive ones also not sure if I have enough clan rats (think so) and missing a banner guy for the others.

OK so the January one is with the skaven? Interesting good thing I need but a few models to complete their chaos adversary section the bad thing it's the most expensive ones also not sure if I have enough clan rats (think so) and missing a banner guy for the others.

I be picking mine up tomorrow but I believe that they have done the stuff or quest hint hint so that you you don't have skaven models that you can use the ones from the box for the game play. I got my woman 40k inquisitor yesterday should be doing something with her once I got a good amount of time, glad to hear you painting make sure you post them in your blog so I and the rest can see them. and tell your friends to get a move on with this dungeon hope to hear of plenty of adventures once its done.

Hi all I've tried my hand at doing a Lahmian Vampiress, I got the Spear of Shadows Hardback for Christmas, the vampire character reminded me of the model done by Avatar of War and Reminded me of a 2 page story of Lahmians in a very old army book. I'm also thinking of trying a different card into the mix for Events. A lot of the Characters I been doing have been one models where I can't fit the amount of details for another batch of Monsters onto the same card. I remember back when I played Yugioh of Gladiator Beasts, a promo card tiger doll which when played allowed you to select two cards from your deck and play them straight away. Since I did the card for the Dread King I been thinking I can do the same for multiple monsters, so gonna try my hand at that next. Also I gonna start doing a campaign do people like the new quest set up being done by Gws in the last couple of White Dwarfs or for me to try a hand at non game master controlled game.

Had to look up the fourth edition wizard rules of chaos dwarfs for this next card. Next edition for the Chaos Dwarf Line the Daemonsmith the wizard slash smithy of the race.
well more like a medium wizard to the mix, I can only think of three more I can do, a Black Orc, a Warlord and a Sorcerer Lord but I think that's it for the chaos dwarfs Easygrin, unless there's any other specific model type you want me to do that is which i'm more than happy to.

13-01-2018, 01:05
The warlord and the sorcerer lord yes please this card is great BTW. I was thinking maybe a special Hobgoblin character and a Taur'Ruk super duper thanks for making all this Richard. I'm busy converting chaos warriors for the slaves of darkness card. I like those only thing I feel there is some missing like chaos hounds

Richard
13-01-2018, 03:07
Yea I can do that, is Taur'Ruk like say the Dread King or a Vampie Lord in the game? and the Hobgoblin character do you mean a Boss or Chieftain? Converting chaos warriors sounds cool mate, with the rules they been given in the Chaos adversary cards its like having the chaos lord and then 2D6 black orc bosses from the IOS game turn up lol all badass good luck facing them.

Hi all so I have tried my hand at the treasure cards using information from the Warhammer Quest Ios game and the roleplay book and treasure card packs 1,2,3 from the original game in the new format.

here's my first four cards Wizard Staffs let me know what you think. I'm trying out the different colours for words let me know which works too.

Those are great looking cards I like them. I'm pondering on a good colour scheme for my chaos warriors thinking about normal metallic sinds I don't wanna have them mixed with the 4 gods but more loosely just chaos. What do you think?

you either for a god or all gods so no connection to a specific one, I would do a colour scheme similar to this one below

233762

but if I did do a certain god robscott5598 on Tale of Four Gamers did a nice paint job a while back on four different chaos warriors

233759

or something along these lines

Hi all Easygrin I looked up Taur'Ruk that you ask but I can find of him is that he's a unit champion? I may be wrong but from tamurkhan the throne wfb by forgeworld that's all I got from it. Let me know as for no to make up for him I done a Sorcerer Prophet for you.

A great end boss one that's puts most others to shame

Some cards will be but what I want to do is if a human hold a elf bow u get a bonus, if a elf holds a elf bow u get a double bonus. all these will be end quest treasures rather than random, well maybe some.



They look exactly like the ones from the original set.

That's what I wanted as i'm wanting to bring what I enjoy of the game back to life



Yes the Taur'ruk is basically the biggest baddest bull centaur.

Then I will work on him next Easygrin


the sorcerer propet Is fantastic A great end boss one that's puts most others to shame

I need to redo my Dread King then lol

Hi all, three days to go and just over 2200 views this month no bad.

MENTAL NOTE BEFORE WE START, IF YOUR GOING SOMEWHERE, ANYWHERE MAKE SURE YOUR POHNE IS CHARGE OR CAMERA HAS FULL BATTERY

233956 233957 233958 233959 233960

So today was the day, an hour trip down the road to Penarth where the Crusade convention hosted by Penarth Gaming community was held. Rain was harsh but it didn't squash the atmosphere, people arrived in their droves and the convention didn't disappoint. I spent a good amount of time with Simon it was great to catch up with him and his wife, been to long since we bounce ideas off each other in person much better and different to phone conversations lol. I couldn't keep him away for long from the stand for the amount of people asking and holding out hands with cash saying "take my money" I left them to it and went to see what else this event had to offer.

233961 233962 233963 233964 233965

It was a mini uk expo, the feeling, the people, the stands, a gamers paradise for areas of tabletop gaming. The day went to fast, I pick up 2 dark sword miniatures for my next hero idea. The original had in the Deathblow Books a article to make a Kiesvite Shaman and as soon as I saw this model three years ago I knew one day if I saw it in person I would pick it up, today was that day. I said my goodbyes to Simon and took a Large box with me home I wonder what this could be? hmm. I get to that soon but for now there was two stands that really caught my eye that i'm happy to put on my blog, from gaming point of view, fond memories of a past and future pospects.

Richard
27-01-2018, 19:04
Macrocosm had a stand of various miniatures but very unique which is why they caught my eye ranging from ogres to Pirates and large selection of different dwarf variations what got my attention were these.

"Bonefields – A Fantasy Game By Macrocosm

by chris | Dec 3, 2017 | News | 0 comments


Greetings everyone.

Last month we announced that we would be releasing our very own boxed game in the new year. I think its probably past time that we introduce it a bit more.

Bonefields is a 2 player boxed game that introduces the rules system ‘Ancient Grudges’ to the tabletop.
Set in a fantasy world, you take control of your own Undead Warbands, animated using Necromantic powers to continue the ancient war between the races of Dwarves and Goblins.

The battlefields are littered with the bodies of fallen warriors you will raise to fill your Warbands as you go raiding against your opponents for resources and to settle grudges of eons past.

The boxed game contains 2 starting Warbands to help you get started. Each Warband contains 8 warriors with various weapons and armor, lead by either a Necromancer or a Vampire."


Now at first I thought they reminded me of the cannibal pygmy's from The mummy returns movie but closer look their are a full army of skeleton goblins and the self below skeleton dwarfs. this after seeing them for what they are and in person has hit me with a great undead theme campaign idea. Although I did not have my Dark sword miniatures at the time to try and check the scale, this is differently something I be looking into when their kickstarter launches the first week of Febuary. I also notice something else which reminded me of my teen years of games-workshop.... Squats anyone.

This next company didn't have a massive Table but what they bought to the table with their enthusiasm and drive (no pun intend guys) was brilliant, I walked round the corner of model stalls and what grab my eye straight away was a custom made raceway with fire burning clouds and cars (I always have time for custom made projects). Walking over to the table to see it up close, the cars had guns on and straightaway going through my mind was Games-workshops Dark Future, Mad max, and Death race.

A brief description on their website

https://www.dicemechanicgames.co.uk/

233976 233977 233978

"Dice Mechanic Games is a small tabletop gaming company based in Wales.
We produce miniatures, upgrade kits and gaming aids for AutoKill, a 20mm scale free roaming auto-duel game.

AutoKill is a vehicular combat system using multiple dice and movement templates to create a sand-box style tabletop experience. Factions can be themed in any way you can imagine within the vast variety of settings. There are gangs, corporations, places and characters within the background for inspiration but the world is wide open to player creativity.

233979 233981 233980

The game is set in a Future earth engaged in multiple dystopian end game scenarios. Each continent and the countries within suffer in unimagined ways. Hyper-Capitalism is the main drive of humanity with the Earthís population at 10 billion and vast swathes of certain countries rendered uninhabitable by industry and conflict.
There are totalitarian country-states in brutal lock-down, scorched nuclear deserts and engine cities dominating bleak horizons. Almost every dystopian scenario is happening somewhere on the planet. Everyone, without exception, is out for themselves.

New technologies have evolved in the desperate struggle to avert environmental and societal catastrophe. Huge atmospheric scrubbers clean blackened skies while AI controlled road-drones patrol the highways, selecting offenders to meet their quotas.While combustion engines are still widely used, a plethora of alternative propulsion modes have evolved to cope with the depletion of fossil fuel resources and the constant threat of environmental apocalypse. Advancements in nano and 3d printing technologies mean fast, vending machine style production is common for most objects including vehicles. It is possible to have an idea for a ride, stroll in to the nearest GigaCity showroom or illicit junk town Repro-Unit and drive it away an hour later.

233982 233983 233984 233985

Due to these new forms of production, vehicles in the world of AutoKill draw on design cues from all of automotive history; combining, editing and improving on them. They can be equipped with exotic arsenals of weaponry utilising wildly varying levels of technological advancement, from crude black powder projectiles to lethal energy weapons.
Far beyond the glistening showrooms of the GigaCities lie vast wasteland expanses scattered with petro-cannibals, exiled mutants and scavenger bandits. Nomadic groups of devolved savages have been witnessed in the most desolate areas, using salvaged half-car chariots and prehistoric
blunt force weaponry to achieve their objectives.

From the dawn of transport to the bleeding edge stylings of the future, in AutoKill no vehicle is out of place"

MadMax is one of my favourite movie story lines both mel Gibson and Tom hardy fury road really gives that image, I also love death race but the setting wasn't for me the cars however were really cool.( Lord of the rings being joint first with Mad Max).

233986 233987 233988

Speaking to the gentlemen, their love for tabletop gaming and cars was really energetic and got you wanting to take part. We chatted and it was their love of Dark future game that got this going but I saw what they had for sale, the rule book, markers, dice, really cool weapon upgrades, BUT I didn't notice any cars they had drones and bikes and crew to upgrade on to a car but no cars. This part grab me which I repeat what was on their website

"AutoKill is a vehicular combat system. Factions can be themed in any way you can imagine within the vast variety of settings. There are gangs, corporations, places and characters within the background for inspiration but the world is wide open to player creativity."

they personally use die cast models but you can use any mobile vehicle models from any range, and just upgrade it with weapons and go with it using their simple, fast flowing, game rule book.

233990 233991

233992 233993 233989

As soon as I they mention that PIMP MY RIDE came to mind. Being a modeller this grab me straight away with different thoughts of Amercian gangster cars and police chases, tank wars, Airfix cars cause it didn't matter what scale you use, but their weapon upgrades they sell are made for 25 scale, and this reason only came to me because of my son and having 3 years of seeing them and buying them, what cars can I use which I know if we go with that collection no one would have the same car twice, hmmm..................HOT WHEELS
