|Miss Vampirella September 2015 - Maria Di Angelis|
In my hobby news I have recently backed a new Kickstarter project, which you can see here -
This is the Battle Systems Ltd. Urban Apocalypse Terrain Set. The buildings and scenery items are made of thick card which comes pre-painted and slots together without the need for glue. This makes it modular, customisable and very easy to assemble and disassemble. Funding was achieved within 27 minutes of its launch, which just goes to show how popular this project is. The basic pledge of £78 gets you enough terrain to cover a 2' by 2' area. Just to give you some idea of what the set looks like, here are a few photos taken from their website.
|How cool is this? This photo features multiple sets to cover a 4' by 4' area.|
|Interior detail and furniture items are provided. Upper floors and roofs are easily removable.|

|One of the add-ons is the Fire Station set. A must-have for me. It costs just £12.|
In other news, I have been playing a few games of the Castle Ravenloft board-game. Expect to see lots of photos of the painted miniatures for this game in the near future. It's a good game if you like dungeon crawls, which I do, especially when going up against the undead. It has much in common with Super Dungeon Explore but at the same time is different enough to feel unique. The rules are very simple and the game is easy to play and fast.
I also managed to play my very first game of Rum & Bones, using the figures and ships from the basic set. The Bone Devils undead faction scored a decisive victory over the Wellsport Brotherhood. What an incredibly fun game it turned out to be. I can see I'm going to get a lot of pleasure out of it. It really appealed to me in a big way.
Apparently, October is Zomtober month, in which participants are supposed to paint at least one zombie or survivor figure every week during the month. I'm not officially taking part because I like painting zombie and survivor figures every month. I'd like to wish all who participate the best of luck and I look forward to seeing your output.
