Painting and Scenery Showcase / Albedo Painting Competition
« on: April 03, 2020, 04:29:46 PM »
Mike Wilson, ACP164 author has very generously set up a painting competition to keep us busy during the current crisis.The competition will be judged (by Mike) on April 30th. There are two classes, an EDF unit and an ILR unit, these can of course be a military unit, an armored unit, a civilian resistance unit or a police / security unit. Mike Wilson says... "The prize for each will be a £30 gift voucher for ACP miniatures... sorry, I don’t have enough toilet paper to share.

Please tag your post #minicomp20 so I can find it easily!"

« on: October 30, 2019, 02:17:19 PM »
We would love to hear (and see) what you have been up to in the world of Albedo table top gaming, so we are running a competition that will run until the end of November, (Saturday 30th).
Play a game, have some fun, take some photos and make some notes then write up your game, post it here and share on Facebook or other social media or Forums.
At the end of the month we will review them all and award a prize (£30 credit to spend on any Albedo miniatures)  to the most entertaining and inspirational report!

I've just made a video looking at how melee, or claw to claw combat works in ACP164.
Of course, it's not really 'claw-to-claw' more short range fire arms used with the intention of clearing and occupying an enemy position..

Any way, you can watch it here: https://youtu.be/Dw7WWTeua7o

They are of course top quality, however I have sleeved mine.
I put all cards that need to be shuffled, as a pose to cards that you choose for equipment options in sleeves just because I believe they shuffle better that way.
Even MTG cards and casino quality poker cards shuffle better in Ultrapro deck protectors. IMHO!

We are planning to make and release a regular stream of videos on YouTube showing different aspects of the game including explanation of rules mechanisms, play throughs of scenarios and builds of terrain.

We've kicked it off today with a brief overview of the different elements of the game (books, cards, Miniatures).

Here's the link to take a look. https://youtu.be/gMJw7NLzfTY

A red letter day for Albedo Miniatures Game!

I can report that today we received the spins from the last production moulds needed for this Kickstarter, so we have every miniature to go into pledges sculpted, moulds made, lead spun, miniatures picked and packed.
We still have books, player aids, terrain & LARCS being worked on, but the miniatures & cards are all done.

Overall, we are still on track for July shipping, so...
Next week (7th June) we will be freezing shipping addresses on Backerkit, so if you will have moved house in July from when you pledged, please pop over to Backerkit and get address updated before we freeze them and start printing address labels. If something comes up at the last minute you can email us.
All of the products funded through the Kickstarter will be available eventually through retail. Once we have dispatched the last backer pledge we will start adding them to the Albedo Miniatures Webstore (www.acp164.com) , however there is a lot of stuff to release, so the releases will be spread over 6 months. This is the Albedo Miniatures releases schedule for the second half of 2019, so if you want any extra stuff in July rather than waiting for it's release date, you have until 7th June to order via Backerkit.

Yes, the hoof / wing vs digits is an issue we have been struggling with since the start.
If you, don't have digits, you don't get to hold things. Disney get around this by drawing all critters with fingers, but Steve doesn't!
Tricky...

The LARCS proved to be very popular. These are being modified for inclusion in KS2 to have stretched bodies to carry 12-12 combat troops.

On my workbench 29th April 2019

Over the weekend I have been assembling some Police / Internal Security troops armed with riot shields and batons and a shotgun



The megaphone is an arm swap with a protestor. I know that I should not really say this about our own figures, but they do make me smile every time I sit down to assemble a batch as there is so much versatility with the separate arms, heads & tails.



These are scheduled as a May release, we've not got production casts through yet, these are pre-production proofs.



The question is what color to paint police uniforms in Albedo? The same colors as the military? Blue? Black? Grey? Let me know what you think. as I want to get a squad painted up to photograph to go in the books.

That's a good idea. We could certainly look at doing some conversions kits using arms.

Thanks for posting this Hanno, fantastic work.
When we put together a painting guide, we will definitely include these, if that is OK with you.

Battle Reports / ACP 164: Introductory scenario from main rule book.
« on: April 11, 2019, 06:12:55 PM »
A couple of weeks ago, my good friend Patrick had an unexpected free afternoon so we decided to have a go at the introductory ACP164 scenario - Defence of the Science Station.



Set on a planet, many light years away from Arras Chankra an ILR Planetary Invasion Fleet has recently landed and plan to annex Ralon186 to the Republic,



Taken by surprise, the planetary HomeGuard were quickly overthrown at the starport and main population centres, however there are many pockets of resistance that need to be cleared before the ILR can claim a complete victory.



Science Station Z1430 was a biological research station, engaged in valuable research to determine if cultivated plants could be used to supplement the critters mainly synthesized diet. A single section of 8 HomeGuard had been tasked with its defense, however the platoon HQ was also located in the building and an additional section were close enough to support if reinforcement was necessary.

All was set for an exciting afternoons gaming. Loads more photos and battle report on my hobby blog @
