Frostgrave: Prelude

Greetings fellow hobbists!
It has been quite here for while, which was partly due to no content that was produced, but now, I am back on track, sort of.
A year ago, my lovely wife gifted me a set of Masters of the Universe Miniatures form Quest Miniatures. Although I love MotU, I had no reason to get paint on them until a friend asked me to play Frostgrave with him. Since Frostgrave offeres games to use what ever they like for the game, I saw the chance to finally get Skeletor aand his gang finished and put to good use. But the quest was: How did Skeletor leave the wonderful planet of Eternia and end up in Felstad, the place Frostgrave plays in?

Infinity Posters and Ads

Greetings Everybody!

After my Photobucket went down, I started relocating stuff.
And while I updated my blogs posts, I realised, that I didn't place all the posters and Infinity Ads somewhere new.
Since I have seen some of them reappear on other peoples boards, I figure, someone finds this usefull.

So, here my ongoingly to be updated collection of Infinity Stuff I have made over the years.

Basically I do the same thing over and over aagain. I find someones picture online, think it would work great as an Ad with some additions, jiggle around with it on Paint.Net and viola...

How to make Token for Infinity


Welcome back to another small tutorial.

As most of you know, Infinity is not just a game with miniatures, but also with token.
Lots of token.
You take a wound... Token.
You are hacked... Token.
You are buffed by a friendly hacker nearby... Token.

Of cause you can buy almost all of these token. Or you cut out the token, provided with the Infinity Boxes.

Here, I want to show ou, how I make my "own" Token and provide you with some graphics for Tokens, you probably don't have already...

EL: Prelude Capture and Protect

Prelude Capture and Protect

++ This is H-Logs Command center Omega-35, hailing the Pileus. Come in, Pileus++

//This is Captain Argos hailing from the Daleko-Class Cargo Vessel "Pileus" . Identification Number 19s83 h1128.//

++Welcome home, Captain! Please head for Docking Station 87 on Platfrom 3++

//Why can't we head straight for the Ark? Our rescources are rather drained. We dearly need to refuel. And we need to unload our cargo holds! On that Astroid Port neither will be possible.//

++Please follow the instructions. We will send you further confidential informations via curier.++

"Captain! Omega-35 has served the conncetion."

"Thanks, I can see that for myself, Polochargos. And I have a bad feeling about this. Set the course for that Port, Lieutenant and let me know as soon as that curier arrives. I will be in my quarters."

++Encryption activated++
Greetings Captain Argos.

I know, you have been on duty for quite a while now,
but I fear, I will not be able to release you and your 
 crew into your well deserved holidays.

I have chosen you for the task, because you have been 
off system for a while now, which means, your team is
 unlikely infiltraded and you have  gathered 
experience with the foe at hand already.

The Annex will show you the only clear shot
 we could extract from a almost complety destroyed cube.

The cube belonged to a dock worker, who got massacred along with 
his whole work gang in Port 45. All the other cubes were lost.

Of cause you can understand that getting the officials into this
would mean, we would face official investigations and we can't
have them sniffing around our facilities.

We figure, we have a clue where this threat is heading to
and we want you to gather a team and hinder them 
from reaching their target.

We will get the civilians off the area, faking a hull breach. Off cause the 
enemy will get warned this way, but we can not risk having any bystanders.

Protect the consoles at all costs!

Good hunting!

How to make a two part mold

Greetings everybody!

as the topic announces, I want to share with you how I am making two part molds.

As I am not only a TableTopist but also a Masters of the Universe fan, I have enventually came around to create my own charackter for the Masters of the Universe...Universe...


The following tutorial will illustrate how I cast the head in resin, after I had sculpted it. Ofcause this way of casting is not only for, compared with tabletop standard sizes rather large, heads, but can be transfered to all things you want to cast. Just respect the IP law of your country!

So, more after the jump!

Report Status


Victory Conditions:
Players get 1 OP for every model that has reportet the status on the console(OM).
When a trooper with the skills Lieutenant or Executive Order attempts to report, the player may reveal the skill and receive 2 OP instead of 1 if the trooper succeeds in reporting the status.

The maximum number of OPs to be scored by reporting the status is 6.

+1 OP is scored for having reported more often than the opponent.

Prelude: Report Status

"We need to get moving" someone said. The left over of the DEC Taskforce scambled to their feet. "We need to get moving and find a way to contact HQ!". "Great Idea Yen, but first we need to find out where we are, before we can find a way home." the Bagh Mari said.

Before anything else could be said, the ground started to shake and a deep threatening growl came from behind the squad. The industrial area they just had left dissapeared in a rapidly growing cloud of dust and debris. "At least that worked! That damned place should be burried now!"

"A catastrophic mine excident has destroyed large parts of the industrial site 04.67. Tonight at around 11:30 a devestating gas explosion in an old mining facility beneath 04.67 led to the total collaps of the old mine shafts, which resulted in a massive land slide into the newly formed pit. Luckily no citizens were harmed, since 04.67 was a fully automatic site. Mayor Hen Cu of Sektor 4, the adjacent commercial district said, that these old mine still hold a thr..."

How To: Building a table for Infinity

Greetings Everybody!

Tody, I want to talk about tables. I don't want to go in depth into the pun about table top or all the buyable stuff out there.

There are reasons out there to buy mats from one of the many different manufacturers (i.e. you are running a tournament), but for my tatse, they are a "easy way out". The other, rather rare typ is the sculpted board and most of the time, those are far from affordable.

Here I want to show you, how I tried to combine the two aspects  find most important for a board: affordable and textured .
