Shopping spree

Recommended Posts

Sorry if I waste your time with this non sw-eote post, but this is the forum where I'm posting and wanted to share my joy. There is an Age of Rebellion beta in there... so it "could" be related. ;)

 

Christmas came early. :)

 

I went on a BIG ordering spree and got a bunch of stuff that I've been wanting to get, but being in South Africa, makes it incredibly hard to get locally. So, one has to order from overseas, pay not a small amount in shipping and then get hit with import duties. But gosh darn it.... I've been patient. (And in the end it actually works out cheaper ordering for oneself.)

 

I had to order from multiple shops to get everything I wanted, and some stuff (x-wing expansions) I'm still waiting for, but here's the pile. It took me the whole day to unbox, pack away neatly and read the rules. Was an epic day!

I've made my own star field surface for x-wing. Looking forward to my first game!

I see sleeves there, are you planning on sleeving all the cards in BSG? Good luck getting the combined crisis decks to actually stand in one pile then :P

Sleeves may be for Netrunner. Almost everyone I know sleeves their decks.

Well I didn't order enough sleeves. :P Noob math problem. So, right now the x-wing pilot cards are getting sleeved, while I wait for the back up order of 800 sleeves for netrunner and star wars LCGs.

 

It does make them mighty slippery!

Always with the negative vibes Morridini.... :lol:

Hehe, I just speak from experience. Every time we play BSG with all expansions I regret ever having sleeved those cards (the skill cards are fine, but why oh why did I do that to the crisis?), and now since I have all cards sleeved I am forced to also sleeve Daybreak.

 

Anyways, nice haul torque!

Very nice purchase. There are forums for Netrunner, BSG and Age of Rebellion Beta, so, not really related to this forum.

Nope I made it. :) Glad you like it.

 

Bought a 4' x 3' hard board, which I then trimmed to fit my table. 

Bought a bunch of spray can colours (matte black x3, white, azure blue, electric blue, fireman red, daisy yellow).

Watched a couple of youtube vids on spray painting space scenes.

Looked at some NASA photography

 

Which boils down to:

 

1) spray lots of red and blue 

2) hit small pockets of yellow

3) cover it all with black (you won't be able to cover all of it, so blues and reds will shine through)

4) use white to make milky ways (use torn cardboard to mask the spray so as to create hanging "curtain" clouds)

5) spray stars (buy lodging a small piece of prestik or blue tac (sticky stuff that holds up posters on walls, don't know what you yanks call it ;) )) into the nozzle itself. this prevents you from pushing down too far, which limits the airflow and produces a fine spray of "dots" which work perfectly as stars.

6) cover half of it up with blue, red and black (to knock it back some) (layers are your friend, keep adding as many as you like until you're satisfied with the overall composition). the more layers the deeper your space.

7) add more stars. try for a mix of BIG ones and small ones. This too adds depth.

8) add detritus (black "stars"... looks like asteroids or space junk far in the distance)
