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.
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.
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.
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.
Session 2 of Savage Worlds / CyberPunk campaign; a group of friends and their friends have formed a troubleshooting company, hoping to get from low-level guard missions and dirty jobs to high-level corporate gigs. The name of the company is Trouble Inc.
Session played 23.2.2011
Start situation: Characters have rested after their mission in africa, and follow news about recent fusion of two mega corporations, Kenta cyber dynamics and Chimera biotechnics. Conversation in the office's lounge gets heated, and Agnes, Tony and a third employee get out on the street for a cigarette.
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.
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.
