Putt-Putt 40K

FORE THE EMPEROR


I was reading this series of Zombie Golf posts by +Stiubhart MacChoille and immediately got to thinking about ways to use what I already have to make a Golf40K game or something like it
"Wilkins, pull the flag as the ball approacheth, and prime the Promethium Pumps."
"The ball travels 3d8+10 inches plus the golfer's S score, and deviates from the marked target by 1d6-BS, to a minimum of 0 inches."

What I have in mind is Hivegolf.  9 holes of creaky hive towers, Plague Zombies, sludge, sumps, and gang warfare.  A couple of gangers surround and escort the driver and putter and you pop up encounters like from the Outlanders random encounters, and there's a ref like in Blood Bowl and your gang can pick up loot counters, archaeotech

Wyrds can telekinetically slice/hook you.  Hive conditions.  Stroke penalties. Spook-enabled targetting of hidden holes.

You can grab the rules +Stiubhart MacChoille used, or close to it, at the above link. Certainly got to model up some ball and hole counters.  Melta-Photon-balls and Exhaust-vent/Bunker-targets?


I think +David Okum may have done a golf series, also (maybe not, but he should have done)

Mini-Molds

Got some heat-activated instant mold compound and toyed with it last night in a slow spell at work. Problem is I only have some old Green Stuff (like 5 years old) and it didn't soften very well so my results were pretty abominable. Still working out the kinks but here is the essential process, on some RTB1 plastic beaky marine heads and the only female Imperial plastic head in my collection, the gunner head from the SoB Inmolator kit. Next will maybe be some autoguns and old power fists

High Speed Death

I pre-ordered the Gangs of Commorraghkkkkytjkjl from my club +Beer and Bolters 40K . Not because I dig on Dark Eldar, but the fluff is kind of cool and I need to stretch my wings a little now that the airbrush is arrived.  It's because it seems a distant offshoot hybrid of Necromunda and that Tie Fighter game, and for the price you get some nice models. Also, I'm not a great painter and my experience has mostly been basecoat/wash/drybrush highlights, ink wash the flesh, yadda yadda yadda.  Picking a new army or force would allow some different finishes and looks that might prompt me to do some new stuff.  I guess, in short, that I am bored at the moment with Space Marines, Sisters, and Imperial Troops generally (you might remind me that I am taking my sweet time with the Genestealer Cult - more on that, later)

The models look great! 😍  The terrain looks hideous 😲😒😒 Note: I don't expect much when I pay 45 bucks for 16 figures on stands with all kinds of cool options









Anyway, I thought of a pretty interesting 1-point perspective trick that I can use to make a 2x2 foot game board for my High Speed Pain-Addicted Perverts to zip around on, and in addition to this it will give me an excuse to make terrain that fits the bill.  I'm thinking a long drop into nothingness, clouds, some faux brushed metal towers, skulls, and polyfill.  More later, but this inspiring thing out:


It occurs to me that the Haemonculi and the retinue of the Archons are pretty cool; maybe I will try Dark Eldar out in the coming year... Need to practice my hideous runes and evil sigils!
