TOPIC: My new fort for Sci-Fi

My new fort for Sci-Fi 7 Years, 5 Months ago  
Hi all... some of the "older" members will remember me. I've been out of circulation here for a bit.

Anyway, I'm very excited about my new fort which is on its way to me. Built for 25mm sci fi by Antenoceti Workshop by Jed Norton in the UK. It is a custom Stalwart bunker fully lit with both LED's and fiberoptics. I went above and beyond the standard Stalwart commision and had him make 2 extra bunkers with fighting platforms, a complete set of walls with space for defense guns, a gate complex protected by defense guns (the gate does open), and 2 landing pads.

One landing pad is shown- the main one which is about 14" long or so with sequential lights that run down to blinking landing hashes (the elevator does go up and down). The other pad is not shown but fits on top of the main bunker complex (this would be a personal landing pad for a commander, etc).

Defensively the thing is armed with 2 main guns, 2 AA guns, and 4 AP guns. The main bunker is 3 levels with the two interior levels fully lit up. WHen I get it I will take some interior shots as Jed said they are just full of screens and buttons.

Total cost with shipping was about 465 pounds sterling (approx. $950 US) and took about 4 months for Jed to build. He said I was the first toe ver order a gate complex and landing pads (which gave the poor guy fits). However, he says it will now be much easier to make these in the future.

This set-up is going to be used for Stargrunt II at the GZG ECC convention in PA the weekend of Feb 16-18. ALso being run is my attack on an underground rebel facility using a significant amount of the wonderful DF sci-fi sets. This sucker WILL be going to other cons up and down the east coast- expect DF stuff to be the interior buildings at a minimum...

The complex set-up pre-weathering:

That is one amazing set up you have there Blackhawk. Saw the bunker on Atenoceti's website and was drooling over it. Almost considered picking up just a bunker, but the price tag in pounds kinda put a halt to that idea :)

It's great to see the set up :) Thanks for putting pictures of it up on the site :)

Fantastic! Do you have a website of the guy who did this? I'm curious to see his other work.

Thats the site.

If you go to the Shop area and click sci-fi you will see what is available. He is out of stock on most sci-fi as he is switching casters but Jed said he should be fully stocked in a couple of weeks.

He stopped taking Stalwart commisions until the end of March- and those will be for the last 1/2 of this year. He said he only has a finite number of slots to do Stalwarts and each takes about 3-4 months depending on complexity.

If you all from Connecticut or SOuther NY want to come and play let me know... we can set up a date. I have two 4 x 8 gaming tables we can out end-to-end for this.

And GS... I also just ordered a bunch of the panels and interior scenery for the sci-fi DF stuff also.

Lets get a game day going, i guess the biggest question, is What will we play? ;)

This post actally made me go in to Anti's page yesterday and when i went in i saw those Purification / Air-Con Units, and so dropped in an order for them, and some Power Charging Points, and they shipped yesterday :).

While i add my Panels, i have to figure out where the security cameras and guns are going. I am thinking in a corner bit to give a nice over all shot of the room :)

As to what to play- I've been drafting up a large game of Stargrunt that will use the fort. If you all have never played that it will be perfect as I can get some practice in teaching new people! My gaming buddies will come over too as I need to playtest this as a 6-8 man scenario.

I'll send a private e-mail/PM to you two and see when we can get together.

Also, I unfortunately did not get down to that con. WHat should have been a 4 hour trip turned into an 8+ hour nightmare as all of the PA highways leading to Lancaster were closed (I-78, 80 and 81). I tried to get there via secondary roads which were just choked with people so I tried a "shortut" which ended up getting me WAY lost. WHen I finally made it back to the Scranton area I just got on the highway and went home. First con I ever failed to go to in 23+ years of gaming in which I was a GM.
