After a few games of Massive Darkness boardgame from Guillotine Games & CoolMiniOrNot we have introduced some house rules that fit our gaming style better. I prefer a simulationist / immersive approach instead of the gamist/narrativist one the Massive Darkness rules use.

Gregor Ottó reviewed the The Others: 7 Sins board game by CoolMiniOrNot.

Many literary works give the theme and play the idea of Hell. The realm of guilty souls where they are who did not live a decent life before their death. Dante's Divine play was the first one to divide her into circles and bunks, according to the Sovereignty of Satan. This has since been recaptured in countless media outlets. But in the next game, the heroes are not going to Hell, but Hell comes to them!

A varnish is a kind of medium that contains no pigment. When applied, it gives a transparent layer after drying.

Varnish can change the look of the colours under it based on how transparent it will become, and can also change the reflectivity. If you add several layers of varnish, it increases the chance of changing the colours and it will also become more and more opaque. Some varnish can get "old", and after a few years or decades it can change in transparency or reflectivity (become yellow), and can crack.

Zombie figures of different miniature scales

Updated: 2020.01.23

Knowing the size and proportions of a miniature is important if you have an established collection you'd like to expand. Determining niniature size and miniature scale is often hard, as even the producing companies use confusing scale references.

While browsing through websites of companies that produce miniatures I often run into articles that are either trying to explain miniature scales the wrong way or complain that their customers demand to know what scale and size their products are.

Second hand miniature trading services are for those who have wargame and boardgame miniatures or scenery that they don't need anymore or for those who would you like to collect miniatures on a budget. You can find cheap, used miniatures and terrain in these webshops.

I collected the second hand miniature webshops I know of. While not strictly webstores, I decided to also include trading groups for the sake of completion. I've listed the second hand trading services by area.

One thing you should be aware of is that some of the second hand miniatures can be illegal copies, so before buying them make sure to check it's legality with the seller. Even if you are okay with buying them, you should know what to expect.
