Title: My Stalker Project (Pic Hvy) The Board so far 07/02/12, page 8
Post by: elysium64 on August 16, 2011, 02:05:39 AM
I've had these figures for a while and I seem to take even longer painting now (deteriating eyesight and rheumatism). Speaking to Paul I have somehow been roped into running these figures in a game at Matakishi's Tea Party. I only hope to be playtesting the basic game system, It will be the first time I have used the rules (hope they work :D). I only need to paint up about 20-30 more of the figures below to be able to run. Also need to write up the rules and print out and laminate all the playsheets and various cards. Fortunately I bought Silent Invaders brilliant Zombie scenery a while ago which I will be using until I eventually finish mine.
As I have at long last finished the Russians tonight (Promised Paul they would be up on this forum yesterday or tonight, hence the late post) I thought I would post up detail and plans.
The game is of a skirmish level, geared towards multiplayer campaigns a'la Necromunda, with your gangs improving. The object of the game as well as killing each other is to collect artifacts, characters, plot points etc. all improving your gang overtime.
Sorry some of the photo's of unpainted stuff are a bit blurry.

Background
After a second explosion at Chernobyl rumoured by some of the older more crazed Stalkers to be extraterrestial in origin, the area affected was cordoned off with fences and in some places walls, with the inhabitants trapped inside.
After a few years adventerous individuals started exploring "The Zone" (as the area became known) and came back with strange artifacts, sources of sustainable energy, and other advanced technology. They also reported areas in the Zone where some of our scientific laws were non existant.
As demand for these objects increased, boomtowns sprung up around the edge of the Zone filled with adventurers, Stalkers, Tourists, Army deserters and the dregs of society all Policed by the newly assigned UN Forces.

Factions

Russian Army Warlords
The many troops left trapped inside the Zone were fortunate in that they had access to fallout shelters, so came through the explosion virtually unscathed, upon returning to the surface and finding themselves trapped within the Zone, many of the soldiers formed into independent groups led by a Warlord, who attempts to govern their small fiefs and expand their area of influence both aggresively and trading in artifacts.
Now to show off my completed figures. These can also be used as regular troops for the KGB.

(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/007-16.jpg)

Their transport, initially will be used as a base point for you to return your artifacts etc. that you are collecting until I expand the rules with vehicle options.
This is a Ki-Tech kit from Ebay for only 10.00 far cheaper than all the resin alternatives, I had to make a false panel to cover the location hole for missile launcher. Still need to tidy up stowage and paint details (lights, periscopes etc.) as well as weathering.
(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/008-12.jpg)

Have this to build to add to forces at later stage.
(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/011-13.jpg)

might possibly add some of the Chechen Russians from Bungle.

Stalkers
The explorers, guides and traders in wondrous things, having spent years exploring the zone stalkers are very aware of it's environment and the associated dangers. These guys often work in small gangs working for a particular crime lord or a fence, other's hire there services out independently to UN, KGB or as guides for Tourists and big game hunters looking to kill a few zombies or mutants.
(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/014-8.jpg)

Will be getting this when released for their vehicles
(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/A06301_1.jpg)

UN forces
Assigned to guard the perimeter of the Zone and to try to stop the trade in artifacts, as well as being quite happy to destroy the artifacts some have also found a little sideline in their illegal trade. These are the best armoured and most technically advanced force in the game (until maybe I introduce Aliens 8))
(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/012-12.jpg)

Their vehicles, may still change the Hummer for a Tamiya version to keep all vehicles 1/48th, even though this Imprint model is a beautiful piece.
(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/015-11.jpg)

KGB
The Russian Government are unhappy about the loss of power to the UN and the KGB are assigned to collect artifacts, and to do what they can to undermine the UN, able to hire Stalkers or Russian Army
(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/017-7.jpg)

Plan to get a couple of Antenociti Zebu Cruisers painted black for their transport.

Zone inhabitants
These will attack the players activated by event cards. I might also try another little game with these guys being the starting characters as you learn to become a Stalker.
(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/016-8.jpg)

Zombies/mutants
Again activated by cards, will use initially as basic zombies, but will later add some specialities. Thinking of trying out a rule, "Zombie Truce", because of the fear of infection, all models in line of site of zombies or combatants engaging zombies, can only move toward and attack zombies, until all zombies in this combat are dead, then they can go back to killing each other or exploring.
(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/018-7.jpg)

Characters and Tokens
Will use these as either characters or tokens as the need arises
(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/013-7.jpg)

Scenery and set dressing
I have already painted these (the two bins and sofa made by Silent invader, painted by me)
(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/020-6.jpg)
close up of rural shack

1 of these

would like to get 1 each of

(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/factory.jpg)

(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/house.jpg)

All buildings will need interiors to explore, provided by bits from Frontline, Ainsty Pardulon and Verlinden
Would also like some buildings/shacks from Pardulon and Ainsty.

The LAM figures are absolutely superb, and I must acknowledge the caster/mouldmakers as the undercuts on some of these figures has to be seen to be believed, truly incredible. My favourite figures by far and easy to paint although a lot of detail.
Well target is set, I need playable forces by 2nd October so will hopefully update regularly.

Excellent stuff! I'm quite looking forward to seeing your Hind assembled - had a blast building and painting mine, and being a 1980s kit, it may not be accurate as a scale model, but looks so good as a gaming piece.

Sorry for lack of zombies, but they are progressing nicely and should be up by the beginning of next week.
In the meantime here are some teasers of W.I.P of the one building I am completing before Matakishi's Tea Party.
The model is based on the Plastruct TV Station.

The cream resin items are from two Verlinden 1/35th scale sets, all the tables had their legs shortened, the bed had a 8mm-10mm section cut out of middle to shorten it, and had legs scratch built to get correct height. the rest is straight from the box and even though the "wrong scale" looks correct thankfully due to some of the exagerated proportions on many of our 28mm models.

http://www.historexagents.com/shop/hxproductdetail.php?ProductCode=2662

cost me about 15.00 each on ebay, and still have loads of stuff for other projects.
The chair and fire extinguisher came in a large mixed box of diecast cars bought for another project, all part of a petrol station/garage backdrop no idea of manufacturer, sorry.

The models are amazing..you have really immersed yourself in the whole game and the attention to detail is a tribute to your patience. I like the range of models you have sourced and of course basing the whole thing on the beautiful Lead Adventure range was a good move.

I also quite like the modern Russians that Empress sell..perhaps you could use some of those?

Also, you might like to look at some of the Russian buildings by Miniart. They are WW2 and mostly bombed out, but would probably suit the region you are looking to do very well. They are 1/35 but most of them should work quite well.

Can't wait to see the final report!

Things a bit slow at the moment due to other commitments (helping a friend refurbish the Pub next door to me)
but good progress made on TV station, construction complete, about halfway through painting, the zombies progressing very slowly, also done conversion work on my two Matakishi figures (removing shirt details, and green stuffing so he now wears the required T-shirt.
Hoping to have more photo's soon.
Thanks for all the kind comments, and suggestions, though pretty much have whole board planned out now.
"you have really immersed yourself in the whole game and the attention to detail is a tribute to your patience."
Yeah Im almost OCD with regards to detailing, some of the extra stuff I have is unnecessary but I really enjoy doing it, though it means I take alot longer to complete anything.

The zombies just need there bases doing, and I have also done some other scenery pieces.
I will definitely have some photo's of completed models early next week although I have just broken my current camera so will need to get friend to take photo's. :'(

At bloody last!
Zombies, TV Station and scenery are finished.
A friend Ben has bought a camera around so I can at last post these and move on to the next part of the project.
I taught Ben some modelling and painting skills whilst building TV Station and some scenery, he built some of the roof details, the watchtower platform excluding the spotlight and did some of the chemical dump(barbed wire fence, grass and flowers and water effect). He also did most of the drybrushing of these items.
The fences are adapted from some reat scenery purchased off Silent Invader.

The Zombies

Last night myself and my friend decided we needed to get more done on my STALKER project, as I have been unable to start the next big building project (adding interior detail to 3 Plasticville Apartments). but inspired by Pardulon I wanted to build a small shanty town.
We made the first two buildings a dwelling built by me, and after a few suggestions from me a Bar built predominantly by my friend. I am also basing up all my telegraph poles.
I bought some Black spray today so will try to get finished this week along with the factory and hopefully a few more shacks, want at least another 8.

(http://i591.photobucket.com/albums/ss355/elysium64/014-12.jpg)

Still a bit more work to do on the bar, more layers on roof, flooring of upstairs area, sand and basetext base.
When I can afford it I want to place a large order to Pardulon for furniture which I can add to these and the factory.

Funnily enough, I have never played any of the computer games (my computer is to old and slow), all my inspiration is from the figures, a few screen shots found online, the film and book and other peoples work here.
Have done more to the bar, and built a pig sty, and communial toilets :D

Whilst i was painting figures in the hope of entering the LPL this year (I'm a LPL virgin ;D) my friend, Ben continued to build Stalker scenery, A wrecked car.

Ben is in charge of scenery making until LPL finished, I think I am safe leaving it in his hands.

I've heard a lot of people just use cardboard.

The corrugated metal is either cut down from a resin cast sheet I bought many years ago (sorry don't know the manufacturer), or embossed plasticard bought from Antenocitti.

I will be painting the baseboard  pt 1. tomorrow so may take a few photo's of everything so far. Other shanties and factory on the paintbench, as I am entering the LPL this year Ben will be doing all the block colours and drybrushing and I will be painting the details. I have quite a few Stalker figures on my LPL schedule so hopefully still be able to present this game at Matakishi's next Teaparty or BLAM, if I do this and once rules are ironed out, I would like to run it as a participation game at SALUTE 2013.

Paint shanty town and factory built so far
Build 4 or 5 more shanties
Build 2 apartment blocks (decided I am going to build from scratch rather than adapting Plasticville)
Then scenic accesories furniture ,fences, rubbish, game tokens etc.
Write out and playtest rules. o_o

Very nice.
What a fantastic board. It's very moody and really sets a tone.
There's a lot of really great details as well.

Great looking table and figures.
Seeing your stuff may get me back to painting mine.
Been painting F&IW for the last few months.
Time for  a change.

I agree.  Hopefully whoever the new owner is going to be will continue in the same vein and with updates.  This project was awesome.
