I have gotten on a pretty big kick with the photography part of miniatures lately. I’ve been shopping around for a camera and looking for ways to make sure my pictures come out great. I’ve come across a few things that have really improved my pictures so I figured I’d share them here.
Well, it’s finally happened. The Tabletop Geeks User Sites are ready for a public release! They are still a bit of a work in progress as I continue to add new features, but I am comfortable enough with where they are at now to allow everyone to start using them. Here are the details on how to sign up and get started with your own site.
We’re nearing the full release of the User Sites! I figured I’d give you guys a preview of what’s to come. You may also want to check out the list of current features and future features. I’m hoping to open these up for everyone very shortly, so keep an eye out!
That’s right… the Tabletop Geeks User Pages (name subject to change) has entered beta testing! I’ve hand picked a few people to test out the new user pages. I will hopefully be opening them to everyone within a week or so. What can you expect from the user pages? Here’s somethings that are ready and some ideas of what’s to come.
I just realized that as of a few days ago (April 19th) Tabletop Geeks is officially one year old! I realize that the posts go back to March of last year, but those were carried over from a different blog just to show off the table to some friends originally. Here is a recap of the last year as well as some information on what is to come.
I don’t normally make posts like this, but this I felt warranted the attention. Maddie Chambers over at Mad’s Hobbit Hole has made a miniature Bag End hobbit hole replica from the Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring movie. It is simply amazing. It may not be directly related to tabletop gaming, but it is still a beautiful piece of miniature scenery. As both a huge Lord of the Rings fan and a fan of miniature tabletop scenery this is just a very exciting piece.
But don’t just take my word for it, here are a couple sample pictures:
I just wanted to toss out a quick update to let you guys know that EVEN MORE warbands are coming to the roster builder. In fact, a few are already up. The Nemesis Crown warbands, as well as a few additional warbands from Letters of the Damned will be up. Here’s a list of the currently available new warbands with links (no way to access them from the dropdowns on the Roster Builder yet):
The Mordheim Roster Builder has been updated with ALL of the warbands from Border Town Burning. There is now a third button underneath the warband selection box allowing you to select “BTB” (Border Town Burning) in addition to buttons for “Official” and “Unofficial” warbands. A very special thanks to vampirekhaine from Tom’s Boring Mordheim Forum for helping me out by typing up the database files for these. Keep in mind that these are brand new and possibly have a few errors in them or are possibly missing a special rule somewhere, so if you see anything wrong then please let us know! You can either post here, respond to the Roster Builder thread on Tom’s, or contact us directly.
Also, don’t worry! I’m still working on allowing you to save your warband and update it later. That one is going to take some time as there are a LOT of rules to worry about.
It’s been a while since I’ve put up any photos of my projects (because it’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to do much work on any of them mainly). I just finished the painting on my first Malifaux miniature tonight, an undead lady of the night. I still need to decorate the base, but the painting itself is done.
I just wanted to make a quick post here to let people know that I’ve added an awesome new download to the downloads section. It is a fully editable Mordheim Roster in PDF form. You can make changes right on the PDF and save them. I have uploaded this, with permission, from Marvelous Miniatures. It is well worth checking out, enough so that I felt it deserved it’s own news post. Thanks to cianty for pointing it out to me as well.
Also, I have put up a few other various downloads in the Mordheim downloads section recently as well. Go check them out!
