What materials do you have? What tools are you going to use?

I have two sizes of cork tiles (1 foot square and about 1/2 foot square) lots of various shapes, sizes and thicknesses of polystyrene, Filler (though not a very good type) lots of types of flock, A little plastacine and greenstuff and lots of cardboard.

I have the tools needed (hot wire cutter etc) although I could do with a glue stick gun.

My biggest problem is always inspiration, and where to start.

Ah, so you're good to go. I hate glue guns. I have one but, I refuse to use it. I use the force when making terrain. I just start cutting and chopping and the idea pops into my brainpan as soon as I notice something. It could be a little thing. But, it is usually enough to inspire me.

Funnily enough, making terrain is the only part of the hobby my girlfriend is prepared to help with.

I have resisted buying a glue gun, since I dont see myself using it that often.  If I do buy one, I'm going to get it through my works account (I'm a purchaser, so it isn't too much of a problem)  Its where I got a lot of my tools for using on my motorbike  :cool:

I started making a swamp, and was making good progress on it.  I let all the plaster dry on the cork tile over night.  Next day I picked it up, and the weight bent the cork tile, cracking all the plaster, which then fell off.

I have now learnt that the cork tiles aren't strong enough for that type of thing, and need reinforcing with cardboard or something.

Ohh, that had to hurt. I don't use plaster. Too heavy. There are light weight plasters for model trains that might work. You may also want to switch to a press-board tile or even a hard plastic for basing terrain. Your old lady helps you make terrain? That is pretty decent of her. My wife would be, like, "f-you, I'm not doing that s**t"  That was a direct quote.  :D Ah, to be in love.  :p

She did art at school, so she doesn't mind that aspect of things.  She even (once) painted a termagaunt.  :o

Yep, I was pretty annoyed at the swamp thing.  I threw it all in the bin in a huff.  Still, you learn by your mistakes (that goes for games too  :;):   )

I wanted cork tiles, since you can push in things like trees etc.  I just need to reinforce the base.  Plastic card maybe.

My wife would be, like, "f-you, I'm not doing that s**t"


He he.  I know what you mean.  Every day I ask her to game with me, but she wont. And with our new house, she wont do any terrain either as she's busy doing DIY.  Still, it gets me out of it.  :p

Yeah, you know. I have still to meet an epic girl. I have never seen or even read about one. I have seen girls on other games but not epic. Does anyone know any epic girls?

Hi!

I gave up on gaming girls long ago. ???

Sharing your hobbies with your spouse is highly over rated. I believe you have hobbies to get away from the every day drudgery of life. That includes the wife and kids }:)

So, I dont mind that my wife doesn't like my hobbies, she's not supposed to. I didn't marry her for that :L

Spouses share many other things in their lives, as far as I am concerned me and my hobby have a selfish affair. It mine and ONLY MINE! :p

Yeah, games and girls is something that just doesn't seem to go together. It must be frustrating for the manufacturers to have only half the market. Sure there are a few. But, they just don't have the numbers. I think it is the going around killing everything we see aspect of games.

I had asked my wife to play when my oppnent was in the marines. She just wouldn't have it. Although, I have two thousand other hobbies. Some of which she has encroached on. (with much protest) Movies seem to be the only shared hobby we truly have. We have a LCD projector and just got ourselves an eight foot screen. :p  So, we have fun there. I don't have bambinos, yet. Just cats. Which seem to act like children.

If we get this new house then my gaming will be able to expand. It has an 800sq ft basement so, I'll have poenty of room to play with my friends.  :laugh: Whish my luck. :D

Hi!

Well, as far as gaming goes, I'm politically incorrect and chauvanisitic. Its my male bonding time :;):

While I dont begrudge or feel uncomfortable by women enjoying gaming, I dont go out of my way to make them feel comfortable or restricting my own actions of words. I do that at work everyday, I dont need that at the gaming table. :angry:

Hi!

If the gaming group is composed of married men, then no biggie, but get a couple of bachelors in the group then the whole dynamic gets screwed. Its more about the "chick" than the "game". :;):
