Panzerfaüste Squads

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2015

I dug out some old files over the weekend of statistics for squads for Panzerfaüste I wrote after buying my copy of Panzerfaüste 1st edition at a Bifrost quite a few years ago now. I’ve tweaked them a bit where there are miniatures in the Hysterical Games Panzerfaüste kickstarter to match the figures and their […]

Fall of the Goblin Empire

Thursday, April 29th, 2010

Fall of the Goblin Empire (FoGE) is my entry for the SFSFW’s fantasy wargaming competition.  A game of goblins and their varigated, varied and highly unreliable flying machines. Here are a couple of the opening paragraphs that set the scene for a game of goblins going up-tiddle-ee-up coming down-tiddle-ee-down-down… Ask anyone and they will tell […]

Thirteen Things random things about Mark Caldwell 1… I remember far too many useless facts for my own good but can’t remember a thing if I’m on a quiz team. 2… Being in high up places doesn’t bother me. My fear is unsteady high places I may fall off. 3… I’ve just joined the moderating […]

Pepakura Designer

Saturday, September 9th, 2006

Came across a little shareware application that will take simple 3d models and produce a design for a paper mesh of the model. It can read a lot of fairly standard formats like wavefront object (.obj), lightwave (.lwo) and 3d studio (.3ds). It can also read some texture maps too. I’ve not got anything to […]
