Title: keel ravenfeeder
Post by: irregularprops on December 15, 2013, 19:25:15
greetings one an d all

first an introduction may help. I turned up last epic empires to have a play with you guys and really enjoyed myself. was on my own as a trader up at the market but you made me welcome. (i put together what kit i had with me as a rudimentory barbarian gear as i traded at dracenfest then conquest then on to epic empires as a knight mostly :) ) I was the excessively hairy english person running around. I run events and a props making buisness for larp in england. (heroes and dragons, irregularprops)

It was my first epic empires and i had no idea what to expect out of the game. Big fan of warhammer and particular choas, i know my lore :) got my interest buzzing for making and props design. I am a professional props maker so am making  a lot of new gear for myself for the choas character. i also have a lot of props and equipment such as three full plague bearer deamon outfits, Beastmen full kits and currently building a bloodthirster. we have some plans for the town set up as well as a small in charecter camp at the choas fort, thats logistics for the shop where my staff will be hopfully selling while i debase myself in choatic goodness

That all said

I will be playing Keel Ravenfeeder of the kugan tribes of the north. undivided steppes warriors and veteran campaigners against the empire and brettonians. takes great victory from besting shiny chivallric knights in personal combat. (i racked up a fair tally at the final battle) I would love to join you guys in the choas camps and hopfully bring along like minded folk along with me. the epic empire game was the best game i've played on this scale in my 20+ years larping. that will do as an intoduction details can be bashed and previews of our kit and critic is welcome

Hey, nice to see you here :)

Title: Re: keel ravenfeeder
Post by: irregularprops on December 15, 2013, 20:44:18
took me a while to find the forum :) never been the best when it comes to technology. i have many ideas and pictures of gear when we come to the run up to epic empires, is this a good spot to throw them on. for example the three plague bearer kits will be all finished up over the next couple of weeks. (need the finished so i can start my cave troll)

also when my costume is all ready for preview is on here good for review. want to make a very good impression with kit. i do it for a living so i have no excuses :) do folks want background story on characters or is it find out in play
Title: Re: keel ravenfeeder
Post by: Arca on December 15, 2013, 21:10:17
I think there are characters who need a backround story and there are others who don't.
If you're more or less important or mighty you should be able to explain yourself. What did you do that our gods gave you some.. presents.. for example.


Do you know that you have to apply to join us at Epic Empires?
I think the best would be to post some pictures of your ideas how you would like to equip your charakter..

I don't know if our applicartion-form exists in english aswell?

i am talking to the organisers in regard to the market, i will talk to them about what i have to do. it gets a little muddled with the trader side as well. the broad plan at the moment is i will have the shop/blacksmiths in town with staff and a bit of a co-op with a few other traders in my large trade tent. (which leaves me free for the weekend)

and set up a small barbarian/maurauder camp with the smaller in charecter tents and props at the camp. but i will be putting pics of what i can bring up here as they get finished. i want to help with the look and feel of the camp as well as get into the character of the thing. as i said this is massively broad strokes of a plan to be rifined over time :)

Hi all, I am one of the other english guys hopefully joining Darren as a Kurgan marauder.
Just spent the last 2 hours looking at the chaos site and particularly the pictures, wow you guys all look amazing.
How do we apply to play chaos in 2014?
I have some work in progress pictures of certain parts of my costumer already. Will be working on it a lot so that it is more chaos than it currently is

IP: can´t see the picture, too-
but
deamon.....
we all have "second outfits" so we don´t have to wear armour all the time... most of them cultists, as it happens.
And I seem to remember -somewhere in this forum- a plan to orchestrate a "Geheimnisnacht"-ritual with cultists, the wizzzards & of course the summonimng of- but perhaps you already have noticed where this leads to...
Croc, you reading this? Got some fireworks left?

Darren are we bringing over a few... daemonic/ beastman costumes ;)....
Title: Re: keel ravenfeeder
Post by: Bijan on December 18, 2013, 23:40:51
When we  talk about daemonic stuff, there is one point which we all have to consider:

 
 As far as I know it's the understanding of our group that our characters and our role-play is settled in a "low-power" area although we are the epic evil from north  slaughtering through the imperium. Acting like we are invulnerable chaotic  beings would  be a little unfair for the  other camps  on Epic Empires ,-)

So if you want do give one of your "big guys" (which are marvelous btw.) a scene we must real is that there is a fair chance for the opponents to  take it down which would mean we are  talking ingame  about a hellish demon but outgame it should be as vulnerable as one of our common warriors.

Nonetheless I'm looking forward seeing those suits in live. The pictures are quite impressive
Title: Re: keel ravenfeeder
Post by: irregularprops on December 19, 2013, 00:19:22
my thoughts on the big nasty stuff is it could be used in two ways

a shock and awe beast for occasional use outside the fort or in a particular encounter (less is more, believe me)

and mainly a choas camp thing for rituals/blessings/etc (our toys :) )

i run events with these pieces and they should be used only to enhance a situation never to dominate it. that just ends on a sour note. but as an enhancment to a situation would be very memorable.

what i will do is as my bestiary fills i will put pictures of the kits i have and nearer events the horde can decide if they want any of them to come along. i intend to make at least one of the main troop type deamons over this winter, so far we have the plaguebearers x3 (just the heasd to finish) bloodletters x2 ( again need to finish head pieces and hands, plus the hellblades) next on the list is a pink horror (just because from a maker point of view they are awesome visually) i am unsure of my desire to do a deamonette yet however ;) i have the claws for one done
Title: Re: keel ravenfeeder

on the note of ranged weaponry. horse bows make sense for the kurgan but how do folks feel about javlins
Title: Re: keel ravenfeeder

ouh deamonette claws ? *_*

really cool, can i see pictures of it maybe ? =)

I really like javelins( in case you meaned the throwingspeers, not the rocketlaunchers :D )....the problem is, i havend seen a save way building javelins.

Bows are no problem, som of the norse are using these too.
Title: Re: keel ravenfeeder
Post by: CallumSw on December 19, 2013, 14:13:05
I am assuming that stab safe javelins and spears are a no go at EE ?
Title: Re: keel ravenfeeder
Post by: Lucan on December 19, 2013, 17:11:16
Well there are some discussions about stabbing. Some say its no problem, others say when u use a safe staff for stabbing other players may see this and think they can stab even with an unsafe staff.
Its not forbidden as far as i know, on the epic empires the players are told to take care of each other and to play safe on their own without to many rules.
So even hitting carefully at the head is no problem for the most
Title: Re: keel ravenfeeder
Post by: irregularprops on December 19, 2013, 21:55:45
we play a game down in devon called dumnonni chronicles and use extensively a stab safe javlin for thrown combat for the past twenty odd years  with no injuries or problems. i make some as the shop irregularprops. i will post a picture of one for perusal.

my thoughts are i would prefer to use javelins as the kurgan as it fits in with the look and tactics of the fast flowing combat style i would imagine employed taking down large prey.

as it happens have not got a full one on file but here is the heads, they are under a metre (and more work done on armour)

have uploaded pictures of soft kit design, just waiting on rivets and dyes and can complete the basic before adding trohpies and bling and fetishes. also the shields the kurgan will field in the big battles

I absolutely love the "scars" on the steel helmet with the movable visor (in german the shape is called a "Schaller"). The way the "scratched off" paint is painted looks realer than reality!
