Miniatures

'Ok, which ones of you are carrying the light?'

Magical light and a torch, finished!

As our games often go forward fast, that question often comes up. Especially when fighting against enemies that can see in darkness, it can become important. It is often ignored, but it can become an effective combat tactic to get rid of opponent's lights.

Black hand - a model used in Ptolus and as D&D spell token

Shape of the hand is created from a wire

Black hand model in a dungeon
Black hand is a recurring theme in Ptolus, which is why I decided to create a model of such. In addition, it can be used to present various spells in D&D 4E as well as 3.x rules, and possibly in other rpg's too. And when trying to find more use for it, a subterranean hand that grabs people from the surface sounds quite mean...

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. 

Chemical container car - paper gaming props for your modern/scifi games

Paper chemical container car

Here's a paper model of a chemical container train car I've used as a prop in my Savage Cyberworld -campaign. Print it on two A4/Letter sheets, on cardstock, 120g paper or something else strudier than standard paper. I haven't added instructions as the model is quite simple, and I didn't see it necessary to add the parts that attach train cars to each other (whatever they are called in English), model worked quite well without them.

Diorama: Winter fight

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:

Dungeon terrains

Overview to DDM dungeon terrain.

Lidda's bad day

This article is about basic dungeon terrains; If you have any terrains for roleplaying purposes, they are much likely to be stone wall -terrains like these!

Gaming terrain: Ancient cemetery

Graves, crypts, creepy trees and statues

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.
