From the computer to the tabletop, this is all about games. Updated each week-end.
The tablescapes tiles by Secret Weapon was a project I backed on Kickstarter with a friend. Even though we went half/half on the pledge, this project represents the most money I have put into a single project on that website.
The project delivered around 18 months late, following a succession of what I would call ‘unforced errors’. basically just poor project management. A such, the shine had gone out of this project by the time it arrived. For our pledge money we each received 32 tiles, enough to cover a single 4′ x 8′ table, or two 4′ x 4′ tables.
I took the second option and painted the tiles in two sets of 16. The first, in a desert scheme, I finished in 2015:
The second was done in an ash wastes scheme, which I finished in 2017:
In painting these I used a set or artist paints – Liquitex heavy body acrylics, and also the largest brushes I have ever used. In all this project was fun to bring to life. Originally I had intended to use these boards in games of SAGA, but the delay meant I had moved on by the time the boards arrived.
However SAGA Age of Magic would suit these fine, even the ash wastes board would look fine for my Otherworld army. It will be some time before I can play a game against anyone other than myself though.
