How to Warhammer

I’ve been involved in the realm of miniatures gaming for a couple of years now, and was recently invited to create a presentation at work (I know, right?) teaching my co-workers about the basics of the tabletop wargame, Warhammer 40,000.

Rather than do the same-ol’ Keynote (or for the Windows users out there, PowerPoint) presentation, I decided to wow everyone with a living landing page detailing the basic features of the game.

It was great fun writing code and designing all of the icons for the major armies in Sketch, so I hope you enjoy the page and give Warhammer a try!


4-Question Warhammer Interview:

  1. What army do you play?
    I play Tyranids, and have a pretty meager list at this point. My army’s name is Monokeros, which is Greek for “unicorn.”
  2. Do you prefer hobbying or gaming?
    I started out liking the painting aspect primarily, I even won a Warpstone challenge for my Trygon Prime! Over time I started to enjoy playing even more, although I still have trouble remembering some of the rules. I really enjoy all of the socializing during gameplay–it can be a great way to spend a day with a good friend!
  3. One 8-hour game or four 2-hour mini games?
    That’s a tough one. While I really like playing small point games because they fit into my schedule more easily, playing four in a row is really tough. There is a lot of setup involved, so the 2 hours could easily turn into 3. In this scenario, I’d pick the 8 hour game and hope that I like my opponent!
  4. What’s your favorite Chaos Daemon army?
    Definitely Slaanesh. The models are so cool, and who doesn’t love a God of pleasure and excess?! This guy would agree with me.

SCSS Radial Freebie

While working for the company, CompAndSave.com, the design team met on a weekly basis to work on a variety of projects.

After spending some time developing our skills writing SCSS, we wanted to tackle a project that would be relatively simple and made use of some common SCSS features, including mixins, variables, and functions.

For the example I created, which you’ll find here, I chose to revisit the 2015 Earth Day campaign page, and create a more engaging globe for the landing page.

Check out the example page and download the files on the CompAndSave’s Github if you’d like to use it for your own projects!

Bird Icons Set 1

I’ve been working on creating bird icon artwork, mostly for fun, but also to share. This set comes in two versions:

  • 250 x 250px with circle background
  • 100px max dimension without background
  • Both sets are in png format on a transparent background

These are free for personal or commercial use, but any attribution to Megan Prior-Pfeifer @ Unillu.com would be appreciated!
