Yeah it is pretty big, almost 2 and a half feet long 29 inches, 2.5 decks...





Yeah, there is more, another DoE box not in the shot, another Starter, and loads of singles from caverns, I think for Fantasy there is just Curved Passages and Walls, and 2 of the original Rooms/Passage set.

Boy GS, does WWG know how good of promoter of their product?
That is a good looking ship.

I was given their Mars Station and the FL Retrofit package.
Since I have them, I am building the Kell Hound base from that BT book.

Additionally, I am using the Ebbles stuff to build the NAIS Research building from the ComStar raid of the said facility shown in the NAIS 4SW Atlas Vol.#2.
We will see how all that works out.

Yeah, those pictures are a sample from when i posted the entire build process of the ship from design to completion, that went up on the WWG forums. Got some nice comments by Paul S (the designer of FL) and i think Denny. I was interested in FL for doing something just like that, making a ship that would be impractical to do in DF. Firts Light succeded with largely flying colors (there are some mods and kitbashes from Ebbles in the ship) but other than that it worked great.

Look to about 4-6 weeks now an entire adventure set on board it (it would have been in 2 weeks but the Players are being players and went and did something else first. Which is kind of good it gives me a chance to redo some of the enterior props. I used the UHU Glue pen so higly recomended and had the same problem a few others mentiond, if you glue during periods of high Humidity the bond doesn't stay. So a bunch of things fell apart in the prop department that i want to redo.

GS & RF* -

You guys are tempting me to try (again) a PLASTIC version of those ships and buildings! I did it once using the GW SM Landing Pad, and it came out terrible (ever try to print on .005" styrene with an InkJet? YUCK!). BUT, now that I'm getting better with an airbrush. . .

"You're going to get us in trouble, R2."
Koo-wherp?
"No, I don't think he likes you."
Kurrrp
"No, I don't like you, either."

Oh well, I've been in trouble before.

See ya!

jkratzer, go Paper/cardstock with either WWG (worldworksgames) or Ebbles Miniatures or both (mel has some GREAT little ships, mecha, tanks, drones etc).
It will be Way easier than styrene, and maybe cheaper too (reams of 110lb paper i think are cheaper than the number of sheets you would need with styrene) The above ship was made with the WWG First light, card stock modeling isn't for everyone but i think it is a fine addation, while naturally flimsier than the Resin like DF, or other companies for the $15 of FL (and we'll say another $30 for ink, x-actos, rulers, cutting mat, card stock paper, transperincy sheets and foamcore) I was able to make a ship that i don't even want to hazard a guess at what it would cost in Resin, or even Styrene. And the modular nature of it makes so you can go as big or small as you want.
And 110lb carstock is actually darn sturdy, The cat as climbed into this thing and did not destroy it.

Mount a computer screen projector on the ceiling, pointing DOWN so you can project your computer-generated maps onto your clean white gaming table.

(Kidding, BTW)

mount that projektor under the table pointing up. cut a hole in your table the size of your screening. put plexi on it and on the plexi some backscreen foil (you get it in the "better" shops that sell homecinema stuff - it sexpensive put you need just a small piece, maybe some of their leftovers is enough). its even nicer if you attach some black cloth around the screen down to the floor - so the light and sound of the projektor is not that disturbing - leave some opening to prevent overheating.
this way you have a nice glowing map on the table and your arms, heads, minis and df stuff is not in the way...

(not really kidding, btw)

Stop it guys; you're giving me crazy ideas again!

"No, R2, I'm NOT getting in that pod with you."

(Wham! POW!)

"I'm going to regret this."

Sorry, 3PO; you already do.

See ya!

Oh man... it's late and I'm gettin' fuzzy around the edges so if you find typos or the text in the pics on this site doesn't make sense, my apologies... Here's my current game room in the new house we moved into back in December. It's a work in progress. I still have to put drywall up, install a drop ceiling, and install my track lighting. That's going to happen over the next several months but in the meantime, I couldn't take leaving my stuff in boxes any longer. ;-}~

Enjoy. Comments & suggestions welcome.

Dante -

Awesome game room! I love the chairs, with that Gothic look to the backs. I wish I had a table that level, but if I did, I'd have to give up my undertable storage of models and DF.
One warning; NEVER let me in there to play darts. With my lousy aim at darts, I'd likely kill that poor critter next to the microwave!

Again, looks good. I don't know where my post went of my table and collection, but if you can find it, or if I can repost it, check it out. I'll have to get workshop pics out later this month.

See ya!

Hi, Jim. Thanks for the compliments. It's still a work in progress as I mentioned. I put off adding the drywall, drop celing and carpet for later this year (gotta' watch the funds and all). Also, like I mentioned in some of the pics, the table works fine for most boardgames but is a bit narrow for how I like to setup my FRPG adventures (see this pic for an example of my old table setup: www.purgatorio.com/gameroom/gamingtable/photos/table004.html )

I really like a "square look" to a table--or something that's at least 4 to 5 feet wide and a bit longer. Gives me the chance to setup the whole array of adventure areas that we typically cover in a day (town, outdoor/wilderness, and dungeon/cavern). Saves a LOT of time in setting up while you play. It's easier to toss on some buildings in a wilderness area (like the left side of that image above) and then just remove them for wilderness play.

I'm still trying to recruit some "mature" gamers in my new home town. Now that I've got the room setup for the most part, I'll become more active in doing the recruiting at my FLGS.

I think I saw pics of your table previously but I'll have to poke around here again to see if they're still online and accessible.

Going back to my table--(can you tell I'm still "thinking out loud" here? lol) I was thinking of putting a 4' x 8' piece of plywood over top of the table for minis games, but then the thought of someone leaning on an edge and sending the whole thing flying over one side started making my chest feel tight and funny. Thsi got me to experimenting the other night and I was very happy to see that I can (with a bit of muscle) turn my antique table sideways (parallel with the large hutch in the new pictures) and setup my two 30" x 60" folding tables to game on. That's actually what I have setup in the old game room pics I linked to above. It requires a bit of re-arranging but it's not a major deal so I think that will work. Oh, the things we do to game... ;-}~
