During a quiet moment from painting, I started looking for scenic bases; as these seem to have exploded onto the modellers world with full force. Micro Art Studio is a small Polish manufacturer, who has some amazing bases and scenery.
Designed with most game systems in mind, there is some focus on items specifically for Infinity. For WM/H players though, there are all the usual sizes and some 120mm bases; which is what caught my attention.
I got an email this morning from Kacper, the designer and owner of Micro Art Studios; generously contributing some items for the Scottish Masters. He will be sending some items over shortly, so from all the Scottish Masters team; thank you.
About 30 minutes ago, the sales of tickets for the first Scottish Masters went on sale. This has been some of the hardest work in a long while, mostly because of the short time constraints. The biggest problem came from the payment system we are using, which will be Ranking HQ.
After wrestling with it for several hours, it finally got sorted and the event is now live on Ranking HQ. While this is a Scottish event, we aren’t restricting this to just players from Scotland. If the aim is to expand next year, players from further afield should be encouraged to come along. Though they should be aware, this is only a one day event this year.
Details of the event can be found here at Ranking HQ
One of the traders at Claymore this weekend, is one that I use a lot for their MDF bases. However that is not all they do, if you check out the Warbases website; you will find a myriad of goodies to enjoy.
I had spoken to Martin at Warbases, before going to Claymore; to see if he might be willing to help out with the Scottish Masters. I had intended on buying some items for the Scottish Masters, small custom tokens for all the players to take away with them. Getting the small matter of buying 50mm bases and tiny flyer movement tray (a godsend for Dystopian Wars) out the way, I asked about doing custom orders. What started out as a small purchase, turned into a very generous contribution from Warbases. Not only will they do the custom bases, they will also be giving some custom keyrings for each player. We are still waiting on some design issues, but we hope to have a fixed design very soon. Sadly with it being convention season, PP is swamped with prep for Gen Con, etc.
A big thank you to Martin and the family at Warbases, for their generous contribution to this event.
A big thank you to everyone at Battlefoam, this is a fantastic contribution to the event; which I am sure will be hotly contested given the quality of these products. Why not check out the website, as they do specialist trays for all ranges of system; including Malifaux, Spartan Games and Flames of War.
This Saturday, I will be demoing WM/H at one of Scotland’s biggest wargame shows. Last year I demo’d Heap, the fun Bodgers card game from Privateer Press.
Other than the odd time, I haven’t demo’d the game like this in a long while so I am both looking forward to it and a little anxious. I’ll be making time to speak to some of the traders as well, hopefully seeing if they can help out with the Scottish Masters. Other than arranging payment of the entry fees everything is coming together for the event. I’ll be promoting it on Saturday, hoping to spread the word about it.
If you would like to help out, or can offer something towards the event; please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org
