I prostrate myself in shame and regret at the last minute pull-out. If it's of any interest I was at work last Sunday and this Saturday as i have to develop a training package to deliver overseas in two more weeks – on top of my usual duties of course.

Looks great by the way and the mounties would have won I'm sure if we could have made it. I will now assume by role in the front rank of the Goulburn Pikers.

Thanks for the photos – I like the gavials and the ape's nicely painted. Multi-player pulp games are always good for a laugh.

Thanks guys,

yes bean you should drop in for the next game

Unlucky General, you shall be flogged next time we meet, as I now count you as unreliable as the Urban myth!

Great writeup. Were pictures taken?

bluewillow03 Mar 2010 3:20 a.m. PST

yep you should see them on the site otherwise try this link

Oh yeah, much better. Not sure why but when you first posted your link, the pictures didn't come up for me. Anyway, there they are now. Thank you.

Great figures and especially great terrain.

Looks like it was a fun game!

How is the river constructed? Looks like painted hardboard? (or similar, MDF etc) And the waterfall, what is its backing material? Very ingenious waterfall, by the way, I've never seen a cliff with waterfall set up like that and it seems so simple and obvious.

The temple and catacombs, did you build or buy those pieces and what can you tell us about their construction?

Thanks much!

yep you guessed it the river is MDf painted, the waterfall and cliffs are polystrene carved with a hotwire, then painted.

I wanted to have a raised section without having to build a whole table, basically its a couple of removalists blankets with a tie dyed calico drop sheet over boxes and polystrene hills underneath.

the temple and catacombs are Hirst arts blocks I moulded with casting powder and put together, I wasn't that happy with them so I gave them away at the end of the game to one of the players.

I've only barely glanced at the photos – very quick – and I'm already inspired. Thanks for posting this – even on such an old original thread.
