September progress: rebasing and Genestealer horde


Remember, remember, the month of September.

Well, with a very hectic agenda, canceled business business, late meetings and social events, there was very little energy left to plan a proper game.
So it ended up as paint sessions, and with fellow bloggers who decided to paint tabletop quality, I felt less ashamed to do the same.

Genestealer horde, so support my dear aliens in actual combat

Some terminators I have decided to glue.

a dwarf that acted in a coca cola commercial
And the final shot with the new base, while watching Battleship, a very terrible movie.

Darker Omen: Part 1. Jely





 This was a random event (special cards for it). A random character is attacked by a mysterious creature and if it lost, the body disappear. Roll 2d6 (1 is a success). for each success, somebody saw something. They all missed.

Darker Omen:Introduction



The day grew darker and the night brighter. The comet of the world breaker was here.
The great sign was here, as it had been said in the old chronicle.
the world breaker
It was said that in the beast from out-world would come and in the darkness breed. It will lay eggs that will stay still until man's folly opens it.
scripture from the great book of catastrophic predictions and what to do next,
It was said that a hero would come and save the world (even though there are dispute if it is a man or a woman, there is also the cult of the holy mice but it is not taken seriously and anyway its cultists were explained with forceful conviction it was not to be idolatred.)
"How to convince that your book is better than the other ones"
Then.....

There was no more. The sun in the night was gone, the darkness in the day was gone.
And life kept going, and with it, death, violence and power.

Until one day in the shit... shiny city of Montiberg...
The sign of the Gods appeared once more.
 The sect of the great beast knew it was the time. And they started searching for their master

Super Dungeon: Trying the layout before starting the campaign (&Aliens)

Yesterday I tried the different layout and dungeons pieces I painted. The dungeon pieces are only few of the hundreds of the 2 dungeon kickstarters I received earlier this year.

I had also build rooms using Dave Graffam artwork.

First try, do I really need black mat?



Definitely yes. The contrast is way better.
I realize also that my room are too big, so I cut some in the room in 4 or 6 parts.


Then comes the dungeon part. Using the 2 kickstarters I backed in 2014 and received in 2015 (if I recall correctly). Dungeon World, by Acheson Creation, is used for the corridor area. The kickstarter gave me more than a hundred and some interesting special tiles. Stone Dungeon, by Frontline games, is perfect to simulate rooms.
 I have included the Daedaloom props I won during the last Morikun challenge. I had completed it with an additional order from his eshop on Etsy. I am very pleased of the results.
Daedaloom shop here: https://www.etsy.com/hk-en/people/daedaloom?ref=owner_profile_leftnav
Frontline Games here: http://frontline-games.com
Acheson Creation, here: http://achesoncreations.com

The tavern has a basement where are stored the food and drinks.

This is also where the owner sleeps, next to a door that leads to his treasures.
Behind a wall, the corridors are leading to an abandoned cultists lair.
With a small temple dedicated to some local dark lord.



How did the owner become so wealthy. Is it related to adventures he had as a young man or is it related to the forgotten horrors that happened behind the wall?

Trap or loot?

And to make sure that Morikun is pleased, some pictures of dungeon with Aliens
They are maybe the reason why the temple has been abandoned?
