    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    WIP (lots of cleaning up to do and a little tweaking here and there) Dr Vorne's not so secret laboratory! Well, this started out as a small one square lab building but quickly escalated to a 4 square mini fortress with all the gear Dr Vorne needs to conduct his nefarious experiments. Then I got to thinking...these crazy scientist types are nothing with out a huge CANNON OF DOOM sticking out of the newly converted skylight, so there you go! I also started thinking, wouldn't it be cool if I made shells that you could use as markers to show how many shots it had left in game an what if it could fire different types of ammo? Easy! just place the marker on your target square, roll for scatter, treat anything in the square to a tank shock attack. to depict which type of ammo you are using simply bob on of the funky little 'fuses' on the end of the half buried shell! so far we have timed (a much larger explosion but gives you the chance to run like hell or maybe even diffuse!), poison gas and Biohazard, how about zombie artillery uh and who knows what else the Vornster has been creating in his lab. I also made the gun modular so expect death ray and missile upgrades!

    From humble beginnings...

    Things just got out of hand!

    Of course, what is a crazy scientist without lots of equipment to conduct his nefarious experiments!

    Place 'em where you like, feel free to build your own little laboratory!

    Of course, what is the point of the loft conversion if you haven't got a DOOMCANNON to take advantage of it with!

    Like my other builds it will be modular to allow me to create expansions such as deathrays and megarockets!

    The shell counter (there will be more than one of course) target marker and various 'fuses' to show the ammo type being used

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Brush up those flying skills chaps, looks like the skies over the frontlines just became a lot more dangerous! I felt the need for something to test the flying skills of those aces, what better than some good old fashioned barrage balloons! Then I thought hmmmmm, they would probably have multiple wounds and need some sort of way to keep track, puncture repair plasters...perfect! I just stick em on with a little blue tack Btw, balloons mount onto existing RW flying stands

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Finally found some time to paint up Dr Vorne's not so secret bunker lab together with his craftily concealed DOOMCANNON!

    From the outside just another bunker...
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ps7ir1lwxm.jpg

    But inside is wall to wall with his nefarious equipment used in is dastardly experiments!

    Don't let him deploy the DOOMCANNON!

    The DM can also be used on its own of course
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...pseyeymiax.jpg

    I created the little tokens so you can use various different loadouts such as gas, timed and biohazard ammunition! The shells can be used to track ammunition if you used a limited shot scenario and the tokens even sit in the end just in case you decide you need to pre-load the weapon...lots of play options!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Had a little tinker with the Rivet board 2.0 today. Consists of 3 full sections, 2 x trench staights, 2 x trench corners and 2 x trench T-junctions...for now! Also tried a few of the drop in scenery parts such as woods, dragons teeth, large craters and tank wrecks, all seems to be coming together, I better get some painting done!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Just a few quick pictures of some more of the Rivet Board 2.0. Haven't had the time or space to lay it out properly so will have to excuse the poor quality! These are the Trench boards, haven't been able to paint up the main boards yet as I am waiting for paint o arrive but as you see they are looking pretty cool. The trench boards are also duel purpose as, if you wish, you can slot extra tiles into the spaces and they rest on the little shelves formed by the trench sides, VOILA...more modular loveliness! Painted a few samples of the 'special' tiles too, these include woodland (I have magnetised my trees so they can simply be removed to see the action close up), shattered forest, roads (manholes and lamps still to do) tank wrecks, large craters and dragons teeth. I intend to make up some small viaducts/bridges that can slot into the trench so you can run rivers and roads over them. Oh btw, as you can see from the pictures I figured the best approach would be to glue down the tiles on the T-junctions and corner trench tiles, nothing much is going to happen on these area anyhow but I left the centre tiles on the straight trenches loose, as you can see by careful placement of you boards sections you can run rivers and roads right through the battlefield!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Had a little fiddle with the Rivet Wars boards today, came out quite nice and I am pretty pleased with something I did...which is rare! With a little swippety swappety of the tiles you can make up some pretty funky battle grounds, the variations are only limited by my tiny brain!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Made up a few widgets while we are waiting for the KS funds to clear first up to tidy up the battlefield a little came up with these funky little bridge sides, they simply slot down the sides into the trenches where the road/river/rail crosses over and make things look prettier!

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psbppjc20m.jpg
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...pspymyiymd.jpg

    Standard road element crossing a trench..
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...pspo33b85p.jpg

    And with the brick bridge sides in place!
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psily1infm.jpg

    Or the iron bridge!
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ps3jh3t51a.jpg
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psjcukxm87.jpg

    Second little widget are rubble tokens. With the introduction of our buildings it would be nice of course with a method to destroy them! Here we go..
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...pssq7zkdjf.jpg

    It's a simple house rule mechanic, any tank/artillery piece (to simplify matters) that can concentrate its fire on a building, if it successfully damages then just place a token within the building. each building section can take 4 hits, if there happens to be no room then remove a figure and count it as a casualty, the more infantry in there the more chance the poor little fellas have of getting crushed by falling masonry! Maybe give them or just hero figures a chance to jump out of a window in a heroic manner? Also make hardened targets such as bunkers a little more difficult to destroy maybe only taking damage on the roll of a 6

    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...psqvedavyh.jpg

    Of course when it's completely full of rubble tokens how about removing it and replacing with a ruin!
    http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v4...ps0bwb1cmz.jpg

    These simple rules will really shine when I start the next RW project, full multi story town houses!

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Friend wrote up a nice battle report of another recent game we had, few more new house rules tried and liked, all be going in that pdf!

    The Guns of Nava-Vorne
    The Allies had gotten wind of a secret doomsday weapon hidden in the depths of the Ardenne forest. Moving quickly, the Allies launched a surprise attack that caught the Blight napping. Using a range of dirty tricks the Allies quickly advanced forward. Firstly they used Edwina Brasseldun’s tunneler to drop off Atomic-robo right outside our closest objective that he quickly jumped in to and control.
    Next, the Wolverine parachuted in to the aerodrome capturing it. We used the special rules that if you had control of the aerodrome you could use it as a deployment point for aircraft instead of your baseline. Now aircraft began filling the skies from the aerodrome with Buccaneer fighters and gyrocopters strafing the poor Blight troops on the ground. The Blight responded bringing their own fighters to the skies.
    The victory point were racking up quickly for the Allies something had to be done. Calling up the might of the Gryphons Hammer tank it quickly rumbled up to the bunker laying waste to the Allies around it. Swarms of troops rushed forward as rocket bikes and mono wheels danced around each other. The Blight became more desperate as they fought to remove Atomic-robo from his ruins.
    Then Edwina’s tunneller was back, this time dropping of the Veteran who quickly dispatched 3 hapless troops before himself being crushed by the giant robotic fists of a Landkrieger.
    Ominously the Allies moved a unit into each of control bunkers rooms the Allies activated the Doomsday cannon. Flashing orange lights and the sirens began to wail as the huge cannon rotated to face its own side. The special rules we used were: unlimited range, no line of sight but scattered, blast and 3 dice for each armour value. We found this was simple and work really well. The huge shell detonated in the middle of the Blight troops sending their broken bodies flying. This was not looking good…
    Then a flash of red zoomed by as the Red Baron took to the skies to fight off the Allied air menace. He quickly dispatched the buccaneers but in response to the Red Baron, Reme Le Funck took to the air and began chasing him across the skies.
    But it was too late the Allies had captured the bunker and so the Blight retreated to lick their wounds and plan how they were going to explain to Dr Vorne that they had lost his Cannon of Doom.

    Re: Rivet Wars - Chibi trench Warfare!

    Few new widgets created, a river ford section to allow those non infantry units to cross and a couple of objective tiles.

    forward observation post and ammo/equipment dump, each takes 4 infantry units and even has a little hole to plant that victory flag!
