Burn In Designs: New Products - Metaverse Towers Round 1

Looks like Burn In Designs is up to something.  Something big it would seem, and by big I mean tall...like 3 or 4 stories tall...or taller?  With how this kit looks I think you could stack these things until you run out of room.

Obviously we have to start with a lower level:

But add a few more:

For more info and a full rundown of the the set check the link below!

So this is the big city. Sky Scrapers and everything.

On most gaming tables the only tall items are the models and the 2 story ruin that is setting on top of a hill. Seldom do you see in-tact buildings over 3 stories tall. Usually these are left to ruins and there only a space that fits 2 or 3 models. The goal of this set was to change that. Now you can easily build unique buildings as tall as you can stack them.

The buildings fall in to categories, lower floors and upper floors. Lower floor buildings are designed with doors while the upper are designed with only windows. The titles are just for sorting purposes. There will be options later to allow lower floors to be used as uppers with balconies so the buildings will better represent the average city. Each kit will include 2 short "end walls", 2 floor/roof pieces, 3 long "face walls" , 1 connector rings and a collection of accessories based on the type of level selected.

Forge of Angels - a new tutorial series!!

One of the things I absolutely love about miniature war gaming is the hobby aspect of it.  In fact I tend to spend more time with this than I actually do playing the games.  For over 20 years, I've been building, creating and painting little toy soldiers and have picked up a few tips and tricks here and there.  Well now with this new series I'll share some of the things I've learned or figured out with those of you who follow the blog or the video-cast.

This first episode is on custom gaming bases and how I go about building them.  Below is the descriptor text for Episode 1 of the Forge of Angels.

Welcome to the first Episode of Forge of Angels!

In this not so regular addition to the Throne of Angels video blog, I'll share my thoughts and thought processes, techniques, tips and tricks that I've picked up over the years.

In this first episode we go over custom gaming bases and the steps I take to build them.

As always feedback and requests are most welcome, and thank you for joining me!

Throne of Angels Episode 24

Hot on the trail of Episode 23, Episode 24 launches one day later!!!  Again just a copy/paste of the descriptor here.

Episode 24 launches with an update on Project Father Johann, my monstrous Dark Age Cult of Metamorphosis undertaking!  You can find details for Dark Age and the Cult of Metamorphosis here:
Followed by a look at the newest force for Dark Age, the space faring warrior race, the Kukulkani -- these guys are mean, they're angry and they are AWESOME!!!

To close out Episode 24 I finish the Sedition Wars side by side of the plastics that come with the game and the metal models that have been available for purchase.  This time we look over the Vanguard and even take a look at the Resin versions as well.
