Crisis Protocol - City Planning

In my previous update, I had mentioned that I was working with my FLGS on getting Marvel Crisis Protocol gaming days going at the shop. This has sparked the need to design a table layout that would work either as four individual play areas for game days or as a connected mega table for special events.

 For my current games, I've been using a city streets map from Mats by Mars, which is really cool and is marked with positions where tokens are supposed to be placed. So it makes set up easy, but players need to be able to measure their token placement properly for games that don't use these style mats, and it feels like it has actually hindered my learning of the game as far as token placement goes.

Also, if you've been around for awhile, you know that I like to dream big and that it was only a matter of time before I started looking at modeling opportunities. When we started talking about having gaming days at my FLGS, and I started working on a collection of terrain to bring to the shop, the time had come.

Deep into MCP and New Projects!

Wow, it's been well over a year since I've posted anything on the ol' blog. Personal life and the way of the world really brought my productivity down to a screeching halt. 

But now ever since I returned from Adepticon 2022, I am in full on hobby mode once again! What started as building a team of models to play games with at Adepticon has turned into an obsession with all things Marvel Crisis Protocol. 

It's been a wild few months and the hobby mojo is overflowing.

Super Secret Christmas Present 2020: Inferno Squad

 Another Christmas, another secret Christmas Project! 

This time around I built a diorama of Iden Versio, Del Meeko and Gideon Hask during their mission on Endor from the video game, Star Wars Battlefront II. 

The idea for this diorama came about thanks to the Endor scenario in the game, where you end up fighting an AT-ST on the way to a landing pad while escaping the forest moon.  I had originally intended to use the official fallen AT-ST scenery expansion for Star Wars Legion as the base, decided against it after looking it over and opted for a 1:48 scale Bandai kit instead.

Let's take a look!

Adventures in Contrast: Star Wars Legion - Droideka Armor


Welcome back to Adventures in Contrast, where I show you all sorts of little tricks and techniques that you can do with Citadel Colour's Contrast paint system!

The Clone Wars edition of Star Wars Legion arrived at my house thanks to my friend Dusty recently and I've been working my way through painting it all.

My main objective for this project is to paint the models to a table top standard, without worrying about spending a ton of time on the. Especially since the droids and clones all are pretty simple paint schemes already.

With that in mind, I'm using flexing Contrast paint to my advantage as much as possible.  In this article we will be looking at the Droideka and how to paint their bronze armor plating using Contrast.

Let's take a look!
