Dark Magenta / Re: Resurrecting Dark Magenta
« Last post by Heroka Vendile on January 04, 2019, 06:51:26 PM »
Article concepts (part 1)
(none of which I stake any claim to necessarily writing, though I do suggest participants for a couple of them):

28mm Retrospectives – we have a handful of 54mm retrospectives in the archive, would should seek out talented 28mm modellers/painters to do some as well.

Showcase – each article briefly features around a handful of conversions by different modellers all based from the same base model. (recurring feature)

Spectacle V Intimacy – GM advice article on ways to find the balance on the tabletop between grand schemes and human misfortunes.

In'f'me! In'f'me! They've all got it in'f'me! – keeping your villains and evil-doer PCs relatable

Wargaming for Poets – A selection of players & GMs reflect on their favourite in-character gaming moments. (possible recurring feature?)

Raiding the Toy Box – repurposing childhood toys and other random discoveries into vehicles, scenery, etc. (possible recurring feature?)

This all kicked off shortly before I went on holiday, but I jotted down some rough thoughts which I will now regurgitate for you all.

As a starting point I always felt that the old issues should have been split up and made available as the individual articles – much easier to find what you're looking for that way. So in the same vein, I would propose an article-by-article release rather than a periodical issuing, while not as immediately impressive, if a regular publishing schedule of some sort can be established that would balance out the couple months wait between "issues".
We could even use re-issueing the original articles individually as a starting point, giving us a very helpful buffer of pre-written articles from the get-go if we want to attempt any kind of regular publishing schedule.

If the supply is basically never ending then all of the above. I really like the idea of a prison cell block with some of these stacked up, your character needs to speak to one of the prisoners but oh no! There’s a prison riot :)

I like the idea of converted shipping containers used for habitation in a run-down slum. Possibly homes for muties who do the drudge work on the borders of the starport.

Cut the ends off and cut them horizontally and you have the makings of some nice corridors that would make a good basis for some shuttle/zone mortalis/space hulk type setup

Greeble up the outsides and mount them on MDF for shipping containers, like you said

make a line of them end-to-end, hot glue them together and stick 3 on either side for a small transport shuttle (Pringles cans for engines?)

Make a tower of them attached to an MDF base as a basis for some vertical terrain like the old Necromunda towers

Missed this, I’d be happy to add pics of my deathwatch marine to anything marine related. Maybe a couple of paragraphs on how I have found using him. Actual hobby time is mostly spent on organising necromunda events at the moment but come April that should change a bit.

I'm always sorely disappointed when I have to keep back styrofoam packaging for anything that might need to be sold on, returned or transported in future, because it comes in so many wonderful shapes.

If you've got dozens of them, the smart move does largely seem to be something that reasonably explains their uniform nature. Some kind of dystopian city block would seem a reasonable idea, although it might not just be habitation; I could see them potentially also being home to some kind of gritty market, with weird salesmen hiding away in their individual nooks from the deluge of grey rain.

So these are the packaging from Xerox toner cartridges for my deign studios' digital press. I have access to 100+ of these from empty cartridge boxes. My initial thought had just been these would make excellent shipping container terrain, but then I trigger that the internal structure was actually useful as well.
Theoretically, I could even make a modular prison complex/crew quarters/micro habs with these. The inners even have bed-like shapes on the left.
Thoughts/suggestions?

Most of February is now probably too close, but I am content to aim for March; Cortez doesn't yet seem ready to nominate any date for his Isabella event, which was the main thing I was trying to avoid a clash with.

Ah well - thanks for trying.

What's our next target - I guess we're too close to out Fracture around February now?
