Check out this new article from the Daily Illuminator that Steve Jackson Games posted:

August 3, 2020: Car Wars: Painting Brimstone




Today I'm covering Brimstone in the first of a series of Car Wars painting articles we're going to be posting over the month of August. Follow the steps and try to recreate them, or just get inspiration for your own autos! Brimstone is part of Car Wars Miniatures Set 3. Click here to preorder Brimstone and all your other Car Wars needs.


By the time I got to Brimstone, I'd painted a lot of the other cars already. I'd wanted at least one car to have a real scrapyard feel. Something that looked like some autoduellists had welded it together from whatever scrap they had laying around. Brimstone, with its seemingly mismatched plates, was ideal for this treatment. One important note, though &ndash; this is an early prototype, so don't be alarmed if yours doesn't look exactly like this one.

I use a pushpin glued to unused miniatures bases as a holder to handle all the models I paint. After affixing Brimstone to this holder with the minimum amount of superglue needed (I would, of course, want to be able to break it loose when I was finished), I began airbrushing on a basecoat. I started with Citadel Fenrisian Gray. It's a nice cool bluish gray that works all right in the airbrush if you thin it down some. Then I blasted on some strips of Formula P3 Bane Base to vary the surface some. When everything was dry I gave the vehicle a wash with Citadel Agrax Earthshade to quickly define all the recesses.

Lastly, you can see where I stippled some Citadel Trollslayer Orange on the door to add a little rust, before deciding I wasn't quite ready for that yet.

If you want to pick up some of these paints for yourself, your Friendly Local Game Store likely stocks Citadel (Games Workshop's paint line) and may stock Formula P3 (Privateer Press' paint line) as well. If not, I've found that Noble Knight Games' Amazon store is a good place to pick up both brands.

*


Rusty metal is still metal, and needs some highlights to show a little of that sheen coming through all that patina. I began stippling on thin layers of highlights with Fenrisian Gray on all the metal plates. Stippling, if you're new to the term, is applying paint in small rapid strokes that leave noticeable texture behind. I thin the paint a lot when I do stippling to allow that texture to build up in layers. It can take a little time to master but I love it as a technique for painting distressed areas like these rusted plates of metal.

Once I was satisified with the Fenrisian Gray layers, I went over the a few parts of the same areas with P3 Menoth White highlight to make it pop just a little bit more.

I also added a line of Fenrisian Gray along the exhaust pipes as a first highlight for these cylindrical shapes.


Now it's really time to add the rust. A lot of people get very good results with pigments and similar products for rust, but I've always had my own method. Formula P3's Bloodstone is a great warm orange-brown I use for a lot of rust effects. Here I've added a sort of thin glaze of it towards the bottom of the plates on the sides of the vehicle, and in the crevices on the exhaust pipes. Rust usually builds up the most in these areas as water collects there before it dries. While the Bloodstone is still wet I stipple in a little Citadel Trollslayer Orange to complete the effect.


Now the plates each get a line of highlight along each edge with the Fenrisian Gray. Then along the upper edges I go back in with a few very thin lines of Menoth White Highlight in a few places to make them look extra sharp. This was also when I added some finishing touches to the exhaust pipes, blending the Fenrisian Gray highlights into a small amount of black to get a nice smooth gradient to help define their cylindrical shape.

I also started on the hubcaps and front machine guns with highlights of the same colors.


Next, I move on to the other areas. This includes the machine guns I'd just started on in the last shot. I left the rust off of these to make them feel somewhat newer and, well, functional. I also start to define the headlights with lines of Fenrisian Gray along the edges.

I also add a little more definition to the hubcaps. You should be able to see on the front hubcap how I've divided this circular shape into quarters of symmetrical dark and light areas. I leave some visible circular brush strokes to try to create the effect of spinning wheels.


Then I move on to the bumper and nearby areas, as well as the tubes along the side. For these I go for more of a chrome effect using less "rust" and smoother blends for a shinier appearance. I keep the Fenrisian Gray as the highlight but I've gotten the Bane Base back out for the shading here, which is why it has that barely noticeable green tint to it.


One of the few things I haven't covered yet are the other tubes leading from the engine to the rear mounted weapon. Since we're going with a rusty metal theme here I decided to use a somewhat oxidized copper just to give it a little variation. The basecoat for the copper is the same Bloodstone I've been using for the rust. I add in some smooth highlights of P3 Moldy Ochre. Some P3 Menoth White highlight is blended in at a few areas where I want the appearance of a really pronounced shine.


Each section of the tubing gets a thin highlight along the edge with Moldy Ochre. Then I use a mix of Citadel Caliban Green and Rhinox Hide to add a thin line between each of those sections. A thin glaze mixed from Citadel Temple Guard Blue and Caliban Green is added along the bottom of all the tubes as a patina.


Now we're down to just the windshield and headlights. I picked green for the window since I thought it was a good contrast for all the rust. I used P3 Gnarls Green with a thin highlight of P3 Wurm Green down the middle to make it appear a little reflective. The headlights are Citadel Flash Gitz Yellow. I used a fairly thick dab of the yellow, and while it was still wet I added a little spot of white in the middle of it and worked it a bit to blend it into the yellow to give it that glowing appearance.


Last up, we have the battle damage. This is one of the most fun stages for me. I added several very light strokes of thinned Menoth White highlight all over the model. Not too many, or it will look weird. I like to concentrate a few streaks on the edge of the hood and roof along the vehicle's axis. It gives the illusion of the vehicle colliding with debris at high speeds.


The last touch is to add a darker streak, right above each of the lighter ones, to give the appearance of deep nicks. You can leave a few of the lighter streaks untouched. They'll look like less severe wear.

And now Brimstone is ready to duel! There are no set color chemes in Car Wars,*so you can paint your Brimstone any way you like. Or, if you like this look, you could try it on another car. Hammer, Pillbug, and Kodiak could all look great as rust buckets. Or you could try something more incongruous and see how a sleeker model like Pure Energy or Shuriken looks covered roof to wheels in rust.

Make sure to preorder your copy of Car Wars and Miniatures Set 3 now so you can be one of the first to start painting!

Like the first virtual FnordCon, and like the virtual events we did for this year's Gen Con, this will be held on our Discord server.

This time it will be a one-day event, so save the date: Saturday, October 10!

We will reprise the most popular events from our previous online excursions, and try an experiment or two. Most, if not all, of the panels will have live Q&A sessions. There will definitely be Deadly Doodles, and we're talking about what else to add.

The biggest gap in our planning: we don't know what to call this! FnordCon 2.2? If you have suggestions, use the link below to post to our forums!

The latest expansion for the Illuminati game, Alternative Truths, started shipping to distributors late last month and is now available at your favorite local game store!*

Between Illuminati cards that didn't make it into the new edition, INWO cards that deserved translation, and new ideas, we had enough for a 125-card supplement. So here we are with another helping of disinformation .*.*. Alternative Truths.

Yes, this set includes the New World Order cards and the Artifacts! So, just for example, Shangri-La can use the Spear of Longinus during a period of "Fanatics Unite" to take over the suddenly cooperative Paparazzi with the Special Persecutor.

Now imagine what the daily news looks like .*.*.

This set includes 125 game cards (including three blanks for you to make up your own cards), rules for the two new card types, and a reference sheet for the new Illuminati, Shangri-La.

This is not a stand-alone game. It is a supplement for Illuminati Second Edition.

July 28, 2020: Top Twenty For January-June 2020

Our business office recently completed reports for June, which means that we now have an exact listing of our top print sellers for the first half of the year. The pandemic has had a major impact on our business &ndash; and not in a good way &ndash; but our team presses on and we continue to survive to make more games. We're fortunate that we have several established, strong sellers, many of which are the only items that are selling in any decent volume through distribution channels.

For those of you who enjoy data, here are our top 20 print titles (by units sold) for the first half of what has turned out to be a challenging, strange year.
  1. Munchkin Deluxe
  2. Munchkin
  3. Zombie Dice
  4. Munchkin 2 - Unnatural Axe
  5. Munchkin 3 - Clerical Errors
  6. Munchkin 4 - The Need For Steed
  7. Munchkin Warhammer 40,000
  8. Illuminati
  9. Munchkin Mass Market Edition
  10. Dice Dragon Dice Bag
  11. Dice Bag: Cthulhu
  12. Kitten d6 Dice Set
  13. Munchkin 5 - De-Ranged
  14. Dice Bag: Lich
  15. Dice Bag: Skeletons
  16. Munchkin Warhammer Age of Sigmar Death & Destruction
  17. Munchkin Cthulhu
  18. Dice Bag: Illuminati
  19. Munchk Zombies: Grave Mistakes
  20. Munchkin Cthulhu: Sanity Check

Our new dice bags had a strong launch and did quite well for the first few months of 2020. Sales since March have been slower than anticipated, but we chalk that up to the pandemic's impact on the market and not a flaw in the bags as a category. (In fact, we have new ones set to launch this fall, as mentioned here.)

With distributors and retailers ordering less in the way of new products, we'll have to take a hard look at the second half of the year (as well as early 2021) plans. This isn't the best environment for a launch through our traditional channels, so we'll explore alternatives and see what we can do to keep the doors open.

As always, you can find our games, expansions, and accessories at your favorite local game store, so please check there first if you're looking for a specific title. If your local store doesn't have what you want, you can always order from our online store, Warehouse 23.

Start at the beginning and watch Howard grow as an artist (he had a lot of growing to do) and a storyteller (he started good and got better). And watch the title character grow from a lump of cheerfully violent goo to someone who might just save the galaxy (still a cheerfully violent lump of goo, though).

Howard deserves a break and I'm glad he's taking one. I look forward to more stories when he's good and ready.

July 26, 2020: Keeping It Chill When You're Working At Home

I love listening to music when I'm working at home. Unfortunately, a lot of my music includes words, and I can't be effective writing*Munchkin cards or editing rulesheets when I've got vocals distracting me from what I'm trying to create (or recreate). Even a lot of my instrumental and classical playlists are distracting, getting me caught up in the music rather than what I'm trying to do.

Add me to the "late to the party" list, but recently I've been enjoying a lot of "lofi" YouTube music. If you haven't tried these out, and you're like me and want something in the background so you aren't hearing the distracting noise from everything around you, I encourage you to search lofi channels on YouTube and try them out. You may even get more productive!

I've linked to one two-hour "Back to the '80s" set that I'm listening to even as I write this, in case you want a starting point. There are lots of other options, though, if this one isn't to your taste.

It serves both as an actual compass rose and as a scatter diagram for when thrown molotails, etc., go awry.

It is made of acrylic. We supply it unpainted - but masked - if you want the lettering colored, pick your color and get out the spray can. This is a prototype, but the actual ones will look exactly like it, because it was created by cottage industry right here in our office: Eric designed it on computer and made it with our laser cutter. Thus, we won't have thousands of these to sell, but we don't NEED thousands! Its first availability will be as part of the BackerKit for the Hexagram #5 and Ardonirane campaign.

July 15, 2020: Munchkin Musings: July 2020

This doesn't really feel like we're already halfway through this year, does it? Or maybe it just feels like this year is more like a decade. Let's forget all our stress for a bit and talk about Munchkin!Schedule Updates

Good news first! The third Munchkin Warhammer 40,000 expansion, Cults and Cogs, is on its way to distributors and should be available by the end of this month. Last month, we announced the third Munchkin Warhammer Age of Sigmar expansion, Guts and Gory, and it still looks like we'll see that this fall. Plus, I had a conversation with Alain and Phil recently, and Alain assures us that Games Workshop wants even more Munchkin Warhammer, so I've started some early thoughts for a couple of 2021 expansions*&ndash; it's way too early for any announcement, or even hints, but keep your eyes on this space in the coming months!

CMON has confirmed that they are close to having all of the Kickstarter copies of Munchkin Dungeon to their backers (and it may be completed by the time this posts) and they're getting ready to ship out remaining stock to retailers. If you missed the Kickstarter last year, here's your chance to pick up the hot new Munchkin board game!

We have a lot of reprints coming in the second half of this year, including the staggering FORTIETH printing of original Munchkin*and a second printing of the game that is spanning the Globe, Munchkin Shakespeare. Don't make a tragic mistake; pick up your copy when it reaches your friendly store, or watch Warehouse 23 for the updates from our home office.

Now for the bad news: some projects we had intended for later this year are being pushed into next year. There are a couple of reasons, but the most important is that I had things ready for playtesting (or actually being playtested) and suddenly had a severe shortage of available playtest space and people to wrap them up. Rather than send things to print that might need more seasoning, we decided to hold them off. This decision came about the same time that the economy went for a deep underwater spin, so it all worked out for the best. Between our already scheduled new titles and reprints, and our existing backstock at Warehouse 23 and our distribution partners, we think we have enough to hold on until the world gets back on a promising upward trend.Speaking of Alain

I buried the lede a little bit earlier, but I wanted to give Alain her own space to shine in this section. Many of you have seen Alain Dawson's messages about our licensed games (not just Munchkin, either!) but she is also a talented designer in her own right, and I'm pleased that we're going to be working with her on some Munchkin goodies that you'll start seeing in 2021. No deals yet, but Alain brought several ideas to Steve and me that we hadn't thought of, and we picked one that is dear to all of our hearts. I can't wait for y'all to see it! (And it frees up a little more time for Steve and me to work on projects that we've had to put aside the past few months, which is a win for everyone.)A Reminder From Your Friendly Munchkin Team

COVID isn't over. In Texas, after a brief respite, it's been getting a LOT worse this month. Steve has made it clear to all the Austin staff that we're officially working from home unless our presence at the office is required, and we're being extremely strict about office rules for the people who have to go in. We're all getting good at Google Hangouts and other ways of cooperating over the internet, and it sure doesn't look like it's going to stop for quite some time.*

If you don't have to go out, it's a good time to stay home. If you do have to do out, maintain appropriate social distance from others and wear a mask. It's for your protection as well as everyone else's. And if one of your local stores or restaurants doesn't seem to be taking the rules seriously, don't go there and tell all your friends why. We can get through this if we all work together as a team.

July 8, 2020: Of Identity, Companies, And Where I Work

As the facilities manager of Steve Jackson Games, I have a lot of diverse responsibilities. Some are more fun than others, like working with vendors to install great big solar arrays or flying my drone over the property to check the roofs and the many trees on the property. Some of the less fun tasks include rebuilding hot water heaters and removing rust from our storage containers out back.

I'd like to share one of those behind-the-scenes tasks with you today. Just before Austin's stay-home order came in, I removed the Eye in the Pyramid from the warehouse wall. It was waterjet cut when it was attached to the building more than 10 years ago. Its finish, having been exposed to the Texas sun for years, was tarnished and even rusted in many places. I took it to a friend's hangar and we sandblasted all the old paint and rust away, revealing a really cool bare metal finish. That done, it went to a powder coating place north of Austin. I picked it up a couple of weeks ago, and its new finish is surely a thing to behold. Shiny and new!

Symbols, icons, and flags help us maintain a sense of identity, as a company, a city, a sports team, or even a nation. For the last several weeks, many of us have had little contact with each other, and many are struggling with that sense of identity and community. I hope that as time goes by, we all do our best to stay in touch with our own identities, taking pride in the things that reinforce our strengths and taking steps to address those that don't. I'm proud of where I work and the work I do here. In the end, my hope is that, like the freshly polished EIP at Steve Jackson Games, we can all clean off the rust and tarnish from our lives, polish and strengthen what remains, and come out shiny and new for the new decade. Let's not let the first half of 2020 set the tone for our future, shall we?

In addition to discussing the many PDFs that were created for this campaign, we also spend time on the project's background and even touch on how the company has been reacting to the global pandemic. It's always a treat to get the chance to chat with Egg, and I personally appreciate him (and Morrus, the site's owner) investing his own time in sharing our project with the world.

You can read the interview here and then, after that, you can still join the Kickstarter campaign before it closes.
