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.
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.
What fantasy (or medieval) roleplaying game wouldn't need a temple? Here's one I made to put adjecent to marketplaces and other convinient spots on the game table.
Base phases of the construction. The temple's main material is cardboard, pillars are semi-corrugated cardboard wrapped around pieces of wooden staff and stairs are foamcore with some filler/glue applied to them.
I've been drawing Pulut -sarjakuva (Pigeons -comics) for a Finnish young's community site, and like I've often drawn these pigeons to guestbooks and in greetings, I decided to create a decoration for our wedding cake of these comic characters. The same theme was seen in wedding invitation, where one pigeon 'accidentally' prod a ring closer to another pigeon - and the wedding cake decoration was made from this picture.
A non-gaming post this time; As readers of this site are mostly gamers, I'll say a few words for this piece's gaming use too; it's not difficult to stretch one's brains to have an idea of using this decorational model as a giant fish the PC's must fight (or can summon!) The model can also be thought a miniature.
Marketplaces are very common element in all roleplaying game environments. In medieval era - and fantasy worlds inherited mainly from that era - marketplaces were vital, as most people or their servants went to fetch food from marketplaces.
While originally designed to be a self-made miniature, arrival of D&D minis retired this fun experiment; The scales are made of glossy glitter pieces, which makes it look really special :)
The dragon is built on a wire frame, using a sort of modelling clay for body and paper meant for those super-light balsa-wood airplanes for wings.
