'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.

A closer look to Star Wars interior terrain pieces

I've spent a lot of time to prepare some big changes for the site, but it's already some time from my previous post and I wanted to post something new on the site. I started digging my materials and found some photos of Star Wars interior terrain pieces I had traded away, very similar to those I'm using myself. I realized that I had't made article showing my Star Wars interior terrains in detail, so now you'll see better pictures of these terrains, as well as get some insight about how these terrains were built.

 

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.

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.

Chronicles of Reilukerho Ptolus campaign: Rosegate house

Into the cellar

Warning, Spoilers to Ptolus players!

Heroes have been going adventuring while the workers they've hired are starting to build basement to the house. To everyone's surprise, the building seems to actually have a basement - the workers hit solid built stone and couldn't advance more. After a bit of searching, the heroes found a secret door that leads to the basement.

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:

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!

Imperial walkers - a resin cast AT-ST and model kit AT-AT

 

I used to run a D20 Star Wars campaign years ago, and I created some At-St walkers for it. I created an original piece and then made a mold of it and  created a few pieces. I used my AT-AT model kit and the chicken walkers with paper miniatures and they worked well. This was before I got addicted to plastic Star Wars miniatures.

I didn't buy the At-At miniature, but I've been using this kit with the miniatures. Even if it's a bit small to be used with the miniatures, it looks ok if there's no other vehicles around, but even if there is it's still better than nothing.
