Imperial Skies

We started playing some Imperial Skies, and I really like the game.

One of the things I want to build is a complete pirate fleet.  As well as adding ground forces to the game.

As the provided cards were limited, and I was not happy with them being double sided for some things, as well as needing multiple cards for the same ships I decided to create my own replacement cards.

I used Inkscape which is a free vector image program available for Mac, Windows and Linux.

The cards are designed in layers with prebuilt layers for many of the common things like Hull Points, Country, Repair, etc.

All the data that you need to enter for a particular ship is all entered on the “Stats” layer.

If you are interested this is my current Inkscape project file for the cards. You will need to be familiar with Inkscape to generate your cards.

This is a sample of what my version of the cards look like.

You can download the Inkscape  Card Template File and generate any card you would like.

Dark Angels Update

Some updated photos of my Monasterium Presidium (Monastery Guard) Dark Angels.

 The backstory for the red armor represents the blood spilled during the destruction of Caliban.

Plast Craft Games Terrain

These looked like they would work well with my Troll Bloods and my Warhammer stuff, so I ordered them. You can never have too much Terrain.



Upon opening them there were some flaws in the castings. The large one had bubbles mostly in small leaves on the upper rocks as can be seen in the photos.


On this one there was a lot of fuzz, like the mold was torn or not clean.



To fix it I cut off some of the leaves, filled in some with green stuff, or covered them with my own sculpted plants. Some of the fuzz I cleaned up with a hobby knife.




Over all for the price these are not too bad. I have seen much worse, and have seen much better. Most of the flaws are minor, and I think when they are finished they will be a nice addition to my growing terrain collection.

Now I just need to prime, paint, and add some finishing touches like flock, a few more plants and maybe a few more details.

I will add completed photos when I get them finished.
