I seem to running up to some obstacles in my gaming projects.
The first one was paint. I posted a note on the Tekumel Minis Yahoo group about the shade of blue to use on my Tsolyani troops, and they were nice enough to recommend a different shade (darker) than the one I had picked. Encouraged with this information, the wife and I stopped by the nearest Michael's craft store to purchase some. Of all the colors of Delta Ceramcoat available, the one I wanted was out of stock! Feawin suggested grabbing the nearest color lighter in shade and then applying a glazing coat to darken it. She found a bottle of transparent Phthalo Blue which should stain the lighter blue ('Mediterranean' Blue from Delta) into what I want. I will experiment with this soon.
The second obstacle is one that has plagued me for quite some time. I have yet to choose a rule set for my Tekumel fantasy forces. I would like to use multiple-figure basing, but it is not a requirement. It needs to support multi-player scenarios, be reasonably quick playing, and use as few markers on the table as necessary (none would be preferable). I prefer multi-base units. The magic system would need to be simple yet devastating when used.
I also need a rule set for the Renaissance project. I might just fall back on Warhammer ancients for this.
