Fanticide terrain in action.

I've posted a first-play review of Fanticide on Top Dog Gaming, where you can see the fanticide terrain built in recent posts in action.
I expect some of you might also be wondering what Fanticide is. Well, it's a new skirmish level fantasy game from Alien Dungeon which not only uses Eureka miniatures, but has rules for creating your own units so you can use anything in your collection! It's very exciting. To find out how exciting, read the review. Or you could check out the AD website.

Ishoo Sventy-Fiv: Baba Yaga Hut

Welcome back to more fanticide madness! This time it's the hut on fowl's legs, favoured domicile of Baba Yaga! This is the sort of cool weird fantasy image which is so perfect of Fanticide, an so easy to make as well. How easy?
Here's Grot.

 There you are - ready for the table!
Next ishoo... well, vote on the poll at the top of the page to find out what next ishoo is about! I have no idea yet!

Ishoo Sventy-For: Obo Stones.

Like a fair number of gamers world wide, I've just picked up Fanticide, and gotten all excited. Many of you are probably excited about using some of Eureka's classic winged monkeys, or creating your own warbands. I'm excited about those things, but I'm even more excited about creating a whole new world with terrain!
I was thrilled to discover Fanticide's rules for hostile terrain - and then find that you can actually buy some of it for your warband! So naturally, I had to have a shot at making some. Of the pieces described, the Obo produced the most vivid mental image, so I went with that. So, how hard is it to create a mysterious, ancient teleporter?
Well, here's wing'ed fez'ed Grot to show you!

 And there you have it! A strange and wonderous teleporter to take you precisely to nowhere.
As to the glitter glue, the stuff I used is called 'Kiddy Glitz' made by Derivan. It comes in a range of colours, but I've used Crystalina since it dries clear. It came from a local craft shop. Apparently you can buy spray on glitter from Krylon and other companies, and there are also glitter paints. If all else fails, use spray adhesive and sprinkle on glitter. It's quite hard to get a decent photo of the glitter regrettably...
Anyways, next ishoo we'll probably be building a hut on fowl's legs!
