Re: Advanced Hero Quest: Prince of Persia

I have bought my first miniature for the project!

Image

Sinbad On His Flying Carpet [01-190] by Ral Partha. I believe it is from 1994.

I did not take this photo (the model hasn't arrived yet).

This model comes in three pieces (the man, the carpet and the stand). Although I could have this guy fly through the dungeons on his carpet (I would just give him the FLYING rule), I think I'll keep him on foot and use him as the "Player 2" model.

My two sons (4 & 6) will be my test-players and no doubt they'll both want to play the Prince, even though there's only one of him. I think we'll change the story so that the Prince has an older brother who has come along to help him out.


Now I need to buy some paint and brushes...

Re: Advanced Hero Quest: Prince of Persia

Thanks! It's barely out of the conceptual stages yet so that's high praise!

Re: Advanced Hero Quest: Prince of Persia

He arrived!

Image

So this is my "Player 2 Model" for the Prince, which my older son (6) will likely play as.

Now I just need to paint him...

Re: Advanced Hero Quest: Prince of Persia

Something new to show you.

I took [ZHU] Industries' Planström design and handed it over to the sorcerer-scientists at http://www.warbases.co.uk.

They gave me these:

Image

Black acrylic tiles (3mm thickness) with the Planström design etched on... WITH LASERS!

Quite cool, but they turned out much darker than expected, and a little "streaky" in places. I don't know why that is.

These are only the ROOM tiles. The corridor tiles will be coming later...

Re: Advanced Hero Quest: Prince of Persia

The rest of the miniatures have finally arrived!

Image

I got these from Iron Wind Metals in the USA.

The Prince is in the foreground, and behind him are the Princess, Jaffar and four palace guards.

What I like about these is that as well as fitting well with the project, they are all by the same sculptor (including the other Prince model from the post before last) -- the late Dennis Mize -- and they are also all from 1990, the same year the DOS version of Prince of Persia (on which this project is based) was published!

Later this week the rest of the dungeon tiles should be arriving from Warbases, then next month I shall be purchasing a bit of dungeon furniture, such as doors, treasure chests etc. from Midlam Miniatures.

Re: Advanced Hero Quest: Prince of Persia

The corridor tiles have arrived!

Image

If I was smarter I would have asked Warbases to etch the pattern onto the jig-saw parts as well, but you live and learn!

Re: Advanced Hero Quest: Prince of Persia

It is starting to come together...

Image

I have doorways (open and closed), stairs, corridors, rooms, a trapdoor, a treasure chest, Fireball and Magic tokens. Even bases for the miniatures. The only thing I am missing now are the GM tokens and some paint!

That is for next time.
