Modelling project: Creating dungeon terrain board

After spraying

This project started after I got tired of photographs of games taken on an old, almost white D&D miniatures battle map. I looked for vinyl mats first, but it started to look like the ones I was interested in weren't available anymore, and I wasn't perfectly happy about them either, so I decided to create real 3d ones of my own. I wanted to find a really strudy base for the terrains but couldn't find any, making me dig up some hardboard and use it as a base. The result was satisfactory, even if there is a bit distortion.

Modelling tutorial: How to create dunes/desert terrain

dune cardboard structure

I've been publishing a lot of roleplaying/gamemastery/miniatures articles recently, and now it's time to get back to modelling. This time I'll show your how to create realistic -looking dunes and desert terrain yourself.

Background and motivation

I've built a lot of fantasy terrain, but not before starting to play Star Wars miniatures game has it come to my mind to create desert terrain. As I started to do it, I realized that it's pretty simple so I could as well create a tutorial while doing it.

Savage Worlds mass combat in space

Combat starts, Mon Calamari cruiser encounters Imperial Star destroyer.

Combat goes on

This writing was made to demonstrate how Savage Worlds Mass Combat rules can be used to simulate conflict between two capital starships. In this example, a Rebel Mon Calamari cruiser comes out of hyperspace, along with an YT-1300 freighter (Millenium Falcon -model) and a troop transport. They are about to drive away or destroy the Imperial Star Destroyer blockading the planet.

Savage Worlds: Conflict -encouraging hindrances and rules

These hindrances and skill adaptations are meant for a game where pc vs. pc conflict is good, even desirable. Players should understand that they should play their characters with feel rather than optimal efficiency - and if they do should be rewarded with bennies. These flaws can get pc's in quite much trouble, so an additional benny use for creating small story twists works well with them.

Scratchbuilt Babylon 5 freighters

Large and medium freighters

Large and medium freighters

As a great Babylon 5 Fan, I've been building an amount of Babylon 5 ships in order to use them in roleplaying games and miniature games. As freighters have an essential part in e2o game, I just had to create some freighters too. These pics show you how I've created 5 Asimov -class freighters, one of which was turned into a Psi Corps freighter.
