Best pimped boardgame of the month, October 2013, 38th edition

How to submit an image of your pimped boardgame?

Just add a geeklist item, where it asks for a ImageID add the number of your photo there. Use [imageid=xxxxxx medium] in the body of the List Entry, where "xxxxxx" is the ImageID number, to show the image at a reasonable size as that helps people judge your image better, and make sure to remove the space. If you have questions please geekmail me and I will help.

Rules:

1) You can submit up to 3 entries.

2) Each entry can contain up to 2 images.

3) That image(s) has to be one of your own. If you like a pimped game of another user, please ask for permission to submission.

4) The image(s) was uploaded during the month in question.

5) Images from your User Gallery are eligible, and images from any other Gallery.

7) It is possible to include a link to a geeklist or a thread, where you find more details about the pimped boardgame.

8) Users may vote for (give a thumb up to) as many entries as they wish.

9) Winners will be declared when the next month's list goes up.

10) In case of a tie, the prize will be split equally among all the tied people.

11) I will randomly reorder this list so that the first-come first-thumbed effect is lessened.



Prizes

Three will be awarded:

First place:

50 bag + microbadge golden teapot mb


Second place:

25 bag

Third place:

10 bag

extra prize (each thumb up giver):

5 bag randomly one person, who gives this list a thumb up.


So make sure to give this list a thumbsup so that we can keep this list on the front page as long as possible!!! You have the chance to win bag. And there will be more participants -> more pimped games to see!!!

Meta stuff

- If you like to see all winners go here.

The Resistance: X-men

This is my custom re-theme of:
The Resistance: Avalon

Almost 50 pieces of art required to do a full set of this game with promos, etc... my buddy came up with the idea and helped with character and art selection...

Here's the pic... click through for the larger version!



Characters:
- Professor X is Merlin
- Wolverine is Percival
- Magneto is Mordred
- Juggernaut is the Assasin
- Mystique is Morgana
- Sentinel is Oberon

Promos:
- Emma Frost is Lancelot
- Cerebro is Excalibur

Others:
- Jean Gray is Lady of the Lake, and her reveal cards have a fire theme.
- Infinity Gauntlet is the crown.
- Infinity Gems are the shields given out. There are 6 to have a choice of colors.

The 5 missions are all cards to make a smaller profile. There is a separate vote track so the only non-card piece in the game is a single token.

The mission winner tokens have been replaced by cards, with X-men on the front and Brotherhood on the back, to be placed over the mission card.

The approve/reject tokens are card, with the white/black theme as in the game so you can quickly see the vote across the table.

Extras:
We decided that we could do an extra good character and try a variant where Nightcrawler knows Magneto (Mordred). Should be interesting and was worth a try.

I also decided against using "Unkown" as a throwback, though it was a last minute decision not to.

Hope you enjoy!

All 627 miniatures (44 unique sculpts) painted over the past 7 months.



Unlike most games, I had no specific reference photos for each unit, so I spent some time identifying the units and finding good reference photos which I made into a Geeklist. You can see more detailed photos there as well:

I thrifted a copy of Regatta last month only to find it was missing the flat cardboard arrow used to indicate wind direction.

Looking at the board I saw that the arrow is meant to sit on a point of land reaching out into the bay. Hmmm, a point of land. I could do something more interesting than a cardboard arrow!

I have access to a 3D printer at work, so I hopped on Sketchup and designed a three dimensional lighthouse to sit on that point and guide the boats around the bay. A pointer built into the base displays the wind direction, and raised numbers on the base show how many spaces boats may move in each direction on the board:



And here it is on race day! I paused the print four times to switch to new filament colors for the print. So no painting, it's all printed plastic:



It replaces the original bit of flat cardboard, incorporates more functionality, and adds some theme to Bayberry Point! I just love it.

Last month I took care of my copy of MoM: Forbidden Alchemy. I removed the old bases from the investigators and replaced them with thematic bases. Furthermore I mounted the monsters on tematic bases and attached a thin magnet to the new bases and a piece of iron foil to the big MoM bases. Now I can use all the minis for RPG and tabletop gaming while they still work great with MoM. The last step was to paint the minis.

Picture one shows the monsters:


Picture two shows the investigators:

There's always more of Dreadball. And it ain't finish (next should be the Rats & Dwarves).
Models and bases are magnetized for easy swapping.

Here are the Gangnam Slam ©the wife. She's not even ashamed of the name.



And here are my Z'zor. I learned a bit abouts orchids while looking for a name. Did you know that the Greek órkhis means "testicle", because the root of the flower just looks like... well, an órkhis.

On a mythologic level, Orchis was the son of a satyr and a Nymph, punished for-whatever he got turned into a flower, bearing his name.
I thought the legend was kinda cool and decided a wanted a little of it for the name.

The custom coach is a model from Reaper Bones.



Models are from Mantic, 28mm range. More canbe seen here.

They explained everything in detail and at great length. After they finished I sat, despondent, contemplating a bleak and empty future. "I’m glad you’re depressed" said one. "It means you’ve understood the situation.”

I've never done any kind of board game pimping before and certainly don't expect to win, but I worked hard enough on it and was proud enough of it that I wanted to share.





It's a storage solution for the tons of those little cards that FFG loves. Each card is a different bonus you can put on your starfighters to differentiate them from one another, such as missiles, elite pilots, systems upgrades, etc. The idea is that it's the Incom product catalog from 1 BBY (3652 ATC) with all of the different options you can choose for your brand new T-65 X-Wing starfighter.

Not shown is the actual storage. I used inserts for business card holders which I have sealed with Hugo's tape to keep them from slipping out. The cards are separated by type, which are indicated by tabs that use the official nomenclature and symbols.

Two custom boards.
A ton of custom dividers.
A ton of custom heroes schemes, villains, masterminds and action cards.
Even a custom box to hold the custom cards (thanks to goodwill for the used box that I painted)

Thanks to all the contributors of the various items from the forums.
