Note: I've written this post ages ago, I just rediscovered it and thought it might be useful for someone. Personally I've moved away from 3d props due to practical reasons (most of my games take place in places other than my home.
Digging through old stuff, I found something I could use for this year's MayDay party - a mask inspired by Gary Larson's Far Side comics. A 15-year old mask that had gone through a rough party and several migrations was a bit in a bad shape, but usable anyways. But a I was hosting a party and the mask was quite clumsy (especially what come to vision), I couldn't keep the mask on for very long. It seemed to do quite an impression to the kids though, who surrounded me fast, wanting to make me reveal my face :)
My Beasts & Barbarians campaign starts soon, and I wanted to take a few inspirational photos while waiting for the game. These diorama-like photos have only few pieces of terrain, but represent situations that might well be epic moments in a Sword & Sorcery game.
While browsing through old photos, I found a few modelling/WIP photos of perhaps the most popular content of this site - miniature -scale Scratchbuilt Star Wars starships collection. I uploaded them here and at the same time, separated WIP pics and tutorials from the original Star Wars scratchbuilt starship models post to reduce the size and put them here to create one separate WIP/tutorial post. And sorry for rss spamming - I needed to change the title more relevant.
A classic theme in fantasy games, this cemetery terrain has gained some inspiration from Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and Montmartre cemetery in Paris. These terrains have often seen use in rpg's, and they really bring atmosphere.
Plaster cast in mold (statue, tombstones, wall on the background)
Cardboard (Crypt walls and roof, bases, thinner obelisk parts)
I found a bunch of photos I've taken of my exterior terrains, of which I haven't been posting much photos. These models see use in almost every fantasy rpg session!
I've now been posting several posts about prepainted miniatures fitting for Sword & Sorcery settings. This time, I'm making a world -specific entry about monsters - for my favourite setting Beasts & Barbarians. I'm mostly using D&D miniatures but also other cheap miniatures, mainly from mage knight/clix series.
How easy can a modelling project be? Death Star must be the easiest one I've done. Cutting the place for the super laser was perhaps the hardest part, after that I applied dyed filler-paste to the model, carved the center line and painted it. Not the most accurate model but works.
One of the earliest terrain items I've created, after dungeon walls and some woods and rocks is winter terrain. Having often seen use, this terrain can be used in almost any genre and world; Marines invading arctic base of an evil mastermind, friends of Drizzt adventuring in Icewind Dale, An icy planet to be explored...
