So what's going on ? oddly enough this year has started like the last one in that another boat has been made by the props team, this one has been in waiting even longer then the one that was done last year.
It's a cargo-ship from TT Combat & I have to say this went together like a dream plus its easily comes apart making assess to the rooms no problem something that couldn't be said for the paddle steamer that was done last year.
|I've since taking the pictures gotten some paint on it & was hopping to use it in a up coming release but have decide not to wait, more on the reason why will be explained below|
Its a big kit so there's plenty of room for gaming on it, the only draw back for me is the scale is more 32mm or 35mm bu I'm sure the cameraman can over come this :)
The sets team have also been busy & build a nice little park square, these think where quite common in the Victorian days.
|sorry about the poor pictures but you get the idea|
It has only one entrance so other then using he gate to enter will require a stunts test also shooters could use it for firing across known that a brawler would have a harder time getting to him/her.
|I still want to add a few more details may be a couple of benches & a postbox|
Lots of new stars have also been hired so costume & makeup are flat out as well.
|These are but a few of the new stars you'll be seen through out the year, these & some others that are now finished have been put on clear bases|
All of this brings me to the main point of this month's news & that is what good is all of this stuff if no movie's are been released ? N&D is no different then other studio's in building up their collection but not getting thing on the screen.
A game within a blog, what does that mean ? good question, now I made no bones about the fact that the most enjoyable part of this hobby for me is making movie's (playing games & AAR's), looking back over the last year in last month's news I noticed out put of movie's dropped off near the end of the year & that's somethings I want to fix & here's the plan.
Budget, well to say that the budget has been well & truly blown on new stars & props would be an understatement but I'm not going in to all that, so time for them to start earning their living, the plan is to link the budget to movie's.
So when I release a movie I'll check after a month to see how many people have seen it & that will be added to my hobby budget, also for a movie to qualify it must have something new in it, be it a star a set of a prop.
The think behind all of this is simple, 1 if I want to buy something I'll have to make movie's, 2 because there needs to be something new in it it should encourage me to get stuff done & 3 like everybody else in this business I buy stuff & like the ship above it can be left lying around for a long time, so only having a limit on when I can spend & how much should help in getting old stuff done & help cut down on buying on impulse.
Needless to say things like glue, paint & brush's won't come out of the budget, but everything else will.
Well that's it for this month's news, so its a goodnight from me & a goodnight from him, as always my thanks for dropping in & if you'd care to comment it would be welcomed :)
