Miniatures, Board Games, and Beyond with David R. Megarry

WotC has added a Gencon 2012 video to their YouTube channel showing off their new minis games as well as the October reprint of the Dungeon board game along with some insights from  David R. Megarry, the original designer of the 1975 version.  Dungeon Command starts the video off and I have demo-played that game.  If you think you'd like a hybrid of DDM, GW4E, and 4ED&D then you'd probably enjoy Dungeon Command.  The Dungeon board game portion of the video begins around 24:15 of the hour.  They show a graphic of the new card design at 34:20. Soon after that, they get back onto Dungeon Command because they are discussing things based on their release schedule.  Enjoy!

Mining Town Terrain

Over on the bluetablepainting YouTube channel is a new video showing off a Mining Town Terrain Work in Progress. There is some discussion of the "narrative" of the setup that should be of particular interest to anyone creating a large terrain setup of any kind.  Also, pause the video on the tents when they are shown.  They are very well made and look to be something you can emulate with pieces from bits boxes you might have on hand.  Enjoy!

Beginner Painting Tutorials

A recent post on EN World discussing some beginning painting tips caused me to make the rounds of some of my YouTube subscriptions and scrounge up these useful videos.  Enjoy!

Some links were included to some useful supplies available at Dick Blick and other art supply stores.  I grabbed some of The Masters Artist's Hand Soap from Michaels Hobbies and Crafts with a 40% discount coupon (they offer these regularly) but they only had the 24 oz size of "The Masters" Brush Cleaner and Preserver which is more than I would ever need.  So, I need to stop by the local Blick to see if I can get a better deal on the brush cleaner and the Sargent No-Spill Paint Cups during this Back-to-School season.

Over on the Geek and Sundry YouTube channel is a review and play-through of the rather interesting game Say Anything.  It's a "party game" but has some interesting mechanics which combine a sort of communal trivia and pop culture references but includes an improvisational element along with persuasion and humor that could be a good exercise for tabletop RPGers.  Enjoy!
