The Blackstar Chronicles

Anything non-ruleset related. Modelling, Terrain, Miniatures, Dice... If it's to do with gaming but isn't a ruleset then put it here.

Noticed that I've had quite a few hits on the blog since posting about a "Magic Door" campaign - Good news: I've determined a starting point. Bad news; the campaign has been delayed while I finish a painting commission for Ed. Once I'm finished with that, I will start the campaign in earnest. I hope to finish painting within the next two weeks ;)

I've got some good news and some bad news.

Good News: I finished Ed's painting commission.

Bad News: I no longer have a computer capable of uploading photos to the blog. It was the victim of "Klingon" computer maintenance (pound-it-till-it-boots) :shock:

This is a temporary setback(need to buy a new computer anyway), at least till I get the funds to get a new one. In the meantime, I haven't been idle - I've decided what game to start with and my workbench is cluttered with the appropriate minis I'm going to need to finish while I get the funds to replace the computer.

Here's a hint at what I'm working on:

Still need to buy a new computer to save and manipulate photos on, but my Dad let me use his computer today to transfer recent photos I took, to a flash drive so that I could upload them on my Chromebook. I've decided to start on a 5150: Fighter Command/Carrier Command campaign, and over the past several weeks I have been purchasing Space Battleship Yamato 2199 and Star Blazers kits to use as CapShips. I also bought a Battlestar Galactica 1/4105 kit and a Battlestar Pegasus 1/4105 kit. In addition, I've bought several Silent Death plastic starfighter sprues from Metal Express , plus I also picked up a couple dozen Vipers and Raptors from Studio Bergstrom .

I'm also working on some space terrain, namely asteroids. I found a couple of neat articles on making cheap and easy asteroids using kitchen sponges. I'll post a mini-tutorial on the blog once I finish them.

In the meantime, it's back to the workbench - got a couple of carriers, several fleet ships, and dozens of fighters to finish... ;)

I'm in the process of writing up an AAR for some play testing I did over at Ed's the other day. We played the soon to be released 5150:Star Army 2nd Tour, which has been brought up to date with all of the other Two Hour Wargames rule books newer game mechanics. It's fun. It's faster. It's brutal :twisted:

I've started writing part 1 of the AAR, and hopefully I will have it posted in the next few days.
