I’m currently working on a lot of stuff that is HQ-related.
Project #1 has been making a magnetic HQ board and sticking magnets on the bottoms of all my figures. The board is a reprint that is 8% larger than the original board, pasted to two thin sheets of galvanized steel. On the bottom of all my figures, furniture, etc, I’ve been sticking cut-out pieces of magnet sheets intended for refrigerator magnets and such.

I am currently wasting my time training a neural net to recognise HQ maps and to translate them into heroscribe format automatically.

Another of those probably-never-published things I do but it's fun.

Nearly there... it is still mixing up bookcases, cupboards, tables and trap doors, though... :? :D

This gets more complicated than I thought in the first place. I published my dataset on Kaggle now, hopefully someone there takes an interest in my topic.

Just starting to prep for my next playtest. This will be the questpack 'Heroes Fortress' for my brother's group for his main wizard. This is probably the strongest of his 7 parties. The quest doesn't look massively difficult. There are not many traps and the monsters are neither in great numbers or particularly awesome, so I will be upgrading the monsters straight away. There are two bosses: "Chaos General Manx the Black and his forces" and Guzwil a Necromancer. The undead forces represent Guzwil's troops and can stay as they are, but I want to give Manx a more chaos based army. He will be a Champion of Khorne, and I will upgrade the living monsters as follows:

:goblin: will become Chaos Hounds with exactly the same stats.
:orc: will become Beastmen (+1 def and BP).
:fimir: will become Bloodreavers (+2 mv, +1 att and BP, -1 MP).
:chaoswarrior: will become Blood Warriors (+2 att, +1 BP). They are Berserkers.
:gargoyle: will become a Bloodthirster (+2 BP, +1 att, def and MP) Targets loses 1 defence die due to the whip, and it may cast 'Ball of Flame' once.

This will be treated as one continuous ten part quest with no recovery of spells, BP's, MP's or once per quest artifacts. I am not sure how many henchmen to allow the Heroes to take with them. My rule of thumb is two per quest, but that would mean 20 which is far too many. I will test it with three for each Hero with the option to add a fourth depending on how things go.

SPOILER ALERT!

I want the Heroes to meet all four undead Heroes, and so in the central room of quest 9 the two Fimirs will become Thorgrim and Galwan, The four undead Heroes will each have their special artifacts with them for this encounter. Therefore, instead of finding these in previous quests, the Heroes must find a mundane article from each undead Hero (Dagger, Hand Axe, Shortsword and Broadsword) which have been imbued with special magic by Guzwil to make the undead Heroes invincible. The said items must be destroyed before the relevant undead Heroes can be harmed. Once they have been defeated the special artifacts may be retrieved. This will make this encounter much tougher.

It's not HQ related, but I started building a new kitchen table. To many projects at the house, haven't had much time for HQ... :(

The base is 2 x building lumber but the top is made from pallet wood that I have milled down and a regular 12x12 tile. The nail holes will be filled with epoxy resin colored black, then it will have a coat of clear epoxy.
