Miniatures

Miniatures and modelling: Quantity vs. Quality

When you are painting or creating miniatures, scratchbuilding terrain or designing papercraft gaming props, how much effort do you see? Are you going to make everything as detailed as possible, or are you fine with just something vaguely resembling you want it to resemble?

Modelling tutorial: How to create dunes/desert terrain

dune cardboard structure

I've been publishing a lot of roleplaying/gamemastery/miniatures articles recently, and now it's time to get back to modelling. This time I'll show your how to create realistic -looking dunes and desert terrain yourself.

Background and motivation

I've built a lot of fantasy terrain, but not before starting to play Star Wars miniatures game has it come to my mind to create desert terrain. As I started to do it, I realized that it's pretty simple so I could as well create a tutorial while doing it.

Prepainted miniatures for Cyberpunk/Modern: A great, versatile collection with budget

Corporate people & men in suits

Anyone can get a great miniature collections very cheaply, thanks to collectible miniatures vith very rare miniatures and stores selling singles. For as low as $25, you can get a basic set of 50 miniatures that has a lot of those extras your player characters are going to meet a lot, plus a lot of different characters for pc's or villains. I've chosen to use Troll & Toad as I've made a lot of purchases with them I'm happy with, and they have a great collection (including Mage Knight) and good photos of everything.

Prepainted miniatures for Cyberpunk/Modern: Expanding repertoire - some excellent choises

Sorry for long delays in my posts series - even worse these pauses are made by the fact that many cool miniatures singles fly off the shelves very fast. Older clix and mage knights are being found again by roleplayers and are selling hot again. It's some time since I started writing this article too, and regrettably many of the items are out at T&T, possibly elsewhere too. It's worth it to look for them though - the ones I'm showing now are really excellent minis for modern/cyberpunk games!

Savage worlds cyberpunk campaign starts

Guard duty; Checking out a parked van

Black van flees and chase begins!

My cyberpunk campaign finally started! The start wasn't as well as I hoped, as only two of the six players could make it to the session. Nevertheless, the session was fun and lethalness of the system was well seen. The system wasn't as fast as I has hoped, although I think it will get faster as I and the players will get more into it and the gaming mentality.

Scratchbuilt Babylon 5 freighters

Large and medium freighters

Large and medium freighters

As a great Babylon 5 Fan, I've been building an amount of Babylon 5 ships in order to use them in roleplaying games and miniature games. As freighters have an essential part in e2o game, I just had to create some freighters too. These pics show you how I've created 5 Asimov -class freighters, one of which was turned into a Psi Corps freighter.
