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. Jouduin tekemään pöytään ylimääräisen välipohjan valkopintaisesta vaneerista, muuten tämä malli oli sopivin pienoismallia varten.

Cardboard sailing ships (+WIP)

Two medieval ship models: Merchant ship and a warship
These two cardboard ships, a warship and a merchant ship, have seen frequent use in D&D games, as well as in an earlier Iron Heroes game. While IH was a different and refreshing variation from D&D, I find it currently too cumbersome ruleswise. 

Diorama: Winter fight

Completed diorama photo

Completed diorama photo

This small diorama -photo was made for a small maxminis -competition. Some terrain props I've made before were used in the diorama, and potato flour to make the ground look more authentic. Sky was taken from a photo and added to it using Gimp.

Below is the original photo, with original background:

Dual-purpose model: Town hall / Storage shelf

Shelf/Administrative building

This building was made for terragenesis dual-purpose terrain competition. As my amount of models, terrains and miniatures keeps ever increasing, I also need more storage solutions for them. This building works as a decorative model that can be hung to wall, works as gaming terrain and stores nice amount of smaller terrain props.

Gaming terrain: Fountain with streaming water (tutorial)

Close-up of the fountain -model

It's time for another terrain -related article, this time it's one of my personal favourites. The fountain can be used in almost any genre as they are present everywhere, and modelling streaming water was an interesting project. This article shows you phase by phase how the model was made, allowing you to create fountains and other water-filled elements of your own.

Miniature container craft – Monster manual comes to life!

Because crafting is fun. Especially Game-related crafting. And 3E monster manual looked cooler.

Now that I've been moving towards using maps and tiles as terrain instead of 3D terrain, as most of my games take place somewhere else than at my home, I've had an itch to craft something. Seeing some very cool Dice pouches and pondering what would be optimal way to categorize and store my minis gave me an idea of making a Monster Manual -style miniatures box for my core miniatures collection.
