Asikkala home farm model, finished

Childhood home farm - old buildings

Shortly in Finnish: Tämä on pienoismalli lapsuuden kotitilastani Asikkalassa. Materiaalina on käytetty pääasiassa pahvia ja pienoismalli on upotettu lasikantisen sohvapöydän sisään.

I confess, I'm guilty of that too.

Savage worlds npc's

These two NPC's have been created automatically using a generator, which is part of a much larger entity. It will be released some day, but in which format it will be unsure - it's Licencee status with Savage Worlds would be something I'd like to happen but I can't promise.
