Greetings everyone. It is me, Baffo! Long time followers of Muse on Minis might remember some of my hobby articles from 2013/14 (let us call that Season 1), while newer fans, that came along during my hiatus, might not have seen any of those and have no idea who this beardy buffoon is… For either sides it is now a bit challenging to go back trough the extensive archives of past articles on MoM, unless you know exactly what you are looking for, so before we start a new series of hobby articles we thought of re-capping all the past articles up to now in a comprehensive list with short descriptions. Hope you find that useful 🙂

Baffo’s Colossal Ideas 03
One-offs (2 articles)
A couple of articles that weren’t part of any over-arching series:
An atypical article were I discuss translating role playing characters from a past Fudge RPG campaign into the IKRPG system. To introduce the characters I showed off an old mini comic based on the events of a particularly disastrous role playing session and then I went over all the party’s characters and how I would ‘re-spec’ them to fit in the Iron kingdoms. Contains quite a few character sketches you might find inspirational for your own role playing campaigns…

Similar to the Colossal ideas series, this is mainly a gallery of a few conversion concepts for Iron Fang Hammerers (then executed in Sculpting table 12), Man-o-War Doom reavers (colored illustrations), cooler Assault kommandos (Strakhov-like ‘skirts’ and different masks) and Boomhauler’s trollkin Gunmages…
Well, that rounds up every hobby article I’ve posted on MoM; hope you find something to your liking.
