Oldhammer USA Weekend - Remember the New Alamo - (Last one)

Hi All,

My fourth, and final I think, comic book report from Oldhammer USA Weekend. Although  I did not actually participate in this game, I checked in with it from time to time. My pictures were just quick snaps and many of them are a lot blurrier than I'd like. As it was there was enough interruption of game play for pictures as we all were trying to post to facebook or record for our blogs.

Comic Life 3 was particularly buggy during this one and crashed multiple times. I did learn how to modify things in pre-made templates using the Inspector feature. It allowed me to use Urbana template but ditch the image filter. I also got a chance to re-acquaint myself with editing panel shapes.

(Right click and open in New Tab/Window to view in more huger size)








I also tried to add more comic booky elements such as price, comic code authority badge and logo to it. I figures if Airborne was Oldhammmer Comics, then I would be Chaos Steed Comics.


It looks to me that the logo gets a little lost when it is smaller on the comic. The text is definitely too small. I spent way too much time on it last night. It still needs some work, but I'll let it rest for now.

As always, thanks for looking.

    1. Thanks Dean. The table, terrain and many of the figures were provided by the GM, Brian. Then almost all of the players involved also contributed figures and vehicles.

  2. Cracking looking series of articles of Sean. I'm a big admirer of your comic book BatReps as well you know, but these are especially impressive :-)

    1. Thanks Blax. I think I'm getting into the workflow of making these. I still think my photos could improve, but I'm enjoying making these.
