Blood: Fresh Supply

Night Dive’s Blood remaster is out. It’s pretty good. It has the full game, cutscenes, all the music, both add-on episodes, and modern day graphics options.

The most important thing, and the reason I’m posting this as an update, is because Night Dive are offering Steam users with a copy of Blood a 50% discount on Fresh Supply, which lowers the cost to a couple of beers.

As a package, if you already have Blood it isn’t much different to running Bloodgdx or Nblood. It is nice to have everything in one place though.

If you’re new to Blood, this is the best way to start playing it. All the files in one place, modern options, and some nice quality of life improvements such as power up timers and easy-to-use custom difficulty (Blood is amazing with hard-mode numbers of monsters but medium or easy-mode aggression/damage).

Frag: Core Rules Revision 0.9c0519

A new day, a new version of FRAG: Shareware Edition! Get it here

The major changes are as follows:

 – Units may now only make TWO actions per turn; movements rates and Traits have been adjusted accordingly.
– The aim action has been removed.
– A new reference sheet has been added to the back of the book.
– Points costs for multi-wound models have been reassessed and several characters have had their Wounds re-balanced in line with other factions (mostly the Hell faction). Except for one unit (the Forgotten) all multi-wound models have seen their points cost increase considerably.
– Readability edits made to rules and fluff.

FRAG: Episode 2 Preview

I have lots of big updates coming up! Warzone Abridged is finished, so all focus will be on FRAG and FRAG’s smaller scale skirmish / dungeon crawl variant.

Have a snapshot of an FRAG Episode 2′s Lost Legion expanded army list:

The vehicle armoury has since been moved and placed with the infantry weapons
These pictures are subject to change, but a boom box that scares demons with loud Dad Rock was an obvious addition to the Lost’s vehicle section

FRAG: Vehicle 3D Prints

More pieces printed for FRAG in flesh and marble flavored PLA. Today’s focus was vehicles for the New Order faction. These will be the last 3D prints for a while as I’m going to be doing some serious maintenance on the printer.

Yes, that is a model rip of the Doom 2016 Cyberdemon in the background. The other miniatures are a Wolfenstein TNO halftrack, Opel Blitz, and a German Panzer IV tank. The death ray thing is based on Konflikt 47. I was originally going to mount it on the Panzer IV but I printed it too large, so it’ll have to be a static weapon with a gun crew.

Everything printed for 28mm gaming. Printer is an Ender 3, with a (slightly warped) 0.4mm brass nozzle.
