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.
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.
The medieval buildings you'll see below have seen a lot of use in my rpg's. I love running games in cities, so it's no wonder - and the campaign I'm just about to finish is Ptolus, a huge book having a complete urban setting for D&D 3E.
The buildings are built almost completely from cardboard + surface materials - that's same old filler powder/PVA glue mixture I've used in so many of my models.
