Necromunda resurfaced

Last week some friends finally met up to try the new ruleset. Great fun was had. I brought my team of Orlocks, the Efty Efties. That stands for the Ferra Terra Farers and Traders, a loose network of hired guns and caravan guards that are associated with Orlock. Doing their dirty work. Realised the hard way that they were ill equipped, needs more autoguns and heavy stubbers. Thats added to the list. Lost all three games I played in but a lot of good fun was had. The new rules are nice, like the fact that you alternate activation. Its great. When we´re more acquainted with the stats of the weapons I do believe everything will run even more smoothly.

So what about the goals for 2017?
Blog posts, set out to do 27. Did 16. That´s OK.
Paint 100 minis (did 85 in 2016 and about 50 in 2015). Did 103 actually, so that´s fine.
Play games and write about them here. Yes.

Pledge for 2018 will be the same:
At least 16 posts, finish painting 103 miniatures but dont forget to play games.

Now when that is out the way, let´s focus on the big thing Necromunda is back.
I´m now starting to see Necroumunda everywhere in my everyday life, at the playground for instance. Checking the recycle bin for useful terrain pieces and looting broken kid´s toys. Now is the time to start actually do something with that loot. Or throw away some of it.

Here are some pics from that day.

My friend Jox did the scratchbuilt terrain and it is even more nice in person. I provided the terrain from last edition and as a matter of fact those bulkheads havent been painted until now. It was really a rush job, cheap acrylics to start with then wash with different washes. Im thinking of adding some chipping and drybrushin and perhaps some graffiti on them before they are varnished and called done. There are some more terrain in the pipeline, but they will be smaller and made to go with the cardboards. Like shanty town shacks and some shops. The idea is that it will be a part of the hive that is bordering the Ash Wastes as well, a friend has a beautiful desert mat. Im thinking of calling that section of the hive Barters junktion, just to have a name for it. I will also add some vehicles I think. Rumour has it from Open day that there will be rules for civilians later on, love that idea. First I need to finish painting my crew though.

PSA: First episode of Prasselsork for free

Seriously, it´s pretty amazing this one. Prasselsork is about trolls, in Sweden. Today.
Just check it out here. It is made by Anders Vegh Blidlöv, of whom I don´t know much. I´ve got some earlier stuff from him that I bought at a comic fair in Stockholm two years ago I believe. A short story on a sentinel. This stuff is really inspirational…

 

 

Äventyrsspel Omnbibus

Summary in English: Bought a book on the catalogue of Äventyrsspel, a company that produced loads of RPG in mostly Swedish in the eighties and nineties. Hence, nostalgia galore!

Ja, så kom den dagen, Äventyrsspelsboken med intevjuer från inblandade och fantastiska bilder. Den här är ett måste i bokhyllan hos en stor den av 70- och 80-talisterna, spelet Drakar & Demoner såldes i över 100 00 exemplar om en räknar alla utgåvorna. Jag och många med mig spenderade en mycket stor del av vår ungdomstid med äÄventyrsspels produkter.

Vi som förköpte fick även en tjusig affisch och ett klistermärke som jag genast förärade datorn. Den här är också bra som introduktion för föräldrar och partners som undrar vad vi höll på med egentligen.
