X-Wing: Captain Crash

Hey PI-Fans, Enjoy the X-Wing Miniatures game? Well... try your hand at the Games @ PI casual events - ever so often we get bored and roll out some really weird rule sets. Our next event is coming up on the 9th of January, so those poor fools above had better work on fixing that TIE. If what both the X-Wing flight-sims and the miniature game taught us holds true, CRASHING = BAD. Of course, on the other hand, setting up someone to crash with you is... slightly more entertaining. Captain Crash is a casual X-Wing event where scoring kills is... slightly less important than causing people to hit you... So. Strap in folks. It's gonna be bumpy. ______________________________________________________ Event Date: 9th Jan 2016, 2 pm. Fleet Construction: Bring a Fleet containing no more than 3 ships with a final pointage of not more that 75 points. All ships must be from the same faction. No player may field more [...]

To Boldly Go…

Please Pardon The Manager. He's clearly confused and it's Been A Long Day.   Hi PI-Fans, A Long Long Time Ago In A Galaxy Far Far Away... Wait. Something isn't right. Sorry. Lets try that again. If I've learnt anything, it's that fandoms are non-exclusive - my love of Star Wars neither competes nor demeans my ability to appreciate Star Trek... Which is great, because even in this time of Star Wars mania, Star Trek 5 Year Mission is really really good game. Unless you're a redshirt. But. Hey. Who cares about the redshirts? - Kenneth, Games @ PI Manager/Balancer of the Force. Command a 5-year mission aboard the USS Enterprise in Star Trek: Five Year Mission. NCC-1701 or NCC 1701-D, you ask? Why not both? Work together to resolve escalating series of alerts before the Enterprise is destroyed. Deal with injuries which lock dice out of play, circumvent ship damage, the prime directive, as well as the ever looming timer [...]

Betrayal at Calth Painting Log Part 1

Kew's Painting Log  Hi everyone, today I’m going to show all of you that painting can be done in three simple steps, Washing, Over brushing and Dry brushing. Those that follow these steps will be able to paint decently enough, even for beginners. First of all, you need to undercoat the miniature it with a primer. Primer is a coating layer that helps ensure that the paint stick on the miniature and does not fall off easily. For beginners, I would recommend priming it either black or white.  The reason I primed it [the model] white is because I’ll be painting it yellow for the base colour. As yellow is a bright colour, priming it black may not be a good idea because it will cause the model to look duller after painting a bright colour on a black surface. Now the issue with a white undercoat is that it [...]
