Ok, I haven't posted a new minis+ thread in a while now. I thought for this one, we could do kind of a group excercise.
For this one, I want you to think about what kind of minis world/playset collection you'd like to put together, to form the physical part of a game.
Very often the costs associated with minis use can be intimidating. So can the thought of building/painting stuf, or even just trying to find the right kind of stuff to use in the first place.
After all, outside of the stuff you find on the shelves of the FLGS, very often you'll have to go searching for the right kind of thing for you and your interests.
This thread is for interested parties to post about a kind of world playset they'd put together if they could.
What do I mean by "world playset"? Just really the cllection of mini people and critters and the toy landscape and vehicles. You'll want a general idea of general use stuff, stuff that can be re-used but also re-arranged and recombined. You don't necessarily want super specific to start with.
What I want you to do is go ahead and post something, give a quick description, and maybe a couple of adventure ideas or vignettes/snippets of action or interaction. Then the other thread participants will help track down links and give suggestions on how you might do something like that with resources they already know about, or give suggestions on related stuff you might not know a lot about that would help you build that kind of thing.
I will ask that no one participating go out of their way to break the spirit of the discussion. Please nothing that goes wildly, wildly out of reasonable human working budgets. No gold plated figures from a zar's tomb or something. Also, let's be reasonable with some of the initial suggestions of world playsets and collection concepts, shooting for stuff that we know could reasonably exist before we get real out there and super-weird.
If you don't have a particular set in mind, I'll give a starter excercise. A while back, Sam! was asking about a John Carter-ish setting. Take that one and run with it folks. What would he want/need to start off that kind of world playset for an JC inspired game setting?
