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.
I know social media applications have been used in gaming more or less, but before now, I haven't found one that really is to my liking. Well, I liked Google Wave a lot, but it had it's issues and is now being shut down. But the new rising star among social media sites is Pinterest, which is extremely useful for roleplayers, terrain builders and miniature collectors as well. And as I'm verfy visually oriented person, it's quite natural I enjoy this new toy. But as a gamer, I wanted to think of using this toy also in gaming.
This simple modelling projects creates stunned/dazed/shaken -effects for miniatures, giving your games comic -style effect - stars whirling around characters heads. The markers can be done in a bit different ways, making the result more or less comic-like.
While this project was inspired by Savage Worlds and it's Shaken condition, it can be well used in other games where characters have different conditions; however, it works best for games where there's not many common different conditions.
Below you can see marker in use - a shaken shaolin monk.
Did you assemble and paint WW2 military aircraft as a kid? I did, although I really didn't like much the glues and paints used in them, the ones I'm using currently in modelling and with miniatures are way easier to handle, an healthier too I guess. I also read Commando -comics and was generally fascinated about technology of The Great War. If you are also Plasticrack addict(tm), you'll be easily tempted to these.
While the most stuff I'm posting here is created by myself, once in a while I find something I must share. Today, I stumbled upon a new list at boardgamegeek, one collecting together various products containing prepainted miniatures. While I knew most of them, there were many new ones on the list too. From Star Wars Starship battles and Mage Knight to Angels 20 and Shadows over Camelot: A Company of Knights, you'll find here info and pictures of prepainted miniatures of many different genres and flavor.
While I have little need for Pathfinder miniatures after collecting a large amount of D&D miniatures, I found one diamond from the collection that every DDM collector should be aware of - Medusa. D&D monster design decisions have moved away from classic themes since the late releases of 3E line, and I haven't been happy most of these changes. What I did like is what they did to Lamia. But medusa, just like dryad, were transformed into something that wasn't so main stream.
A classic theme in fantasy games, this cemetery terrain has gained some inspiration from Baldur's Gate II: Shadows of Amn and Montmartre cemetery in Paris. These terrains have often seen use in rpg's, and they really bring atmosphere.

Cardboard (Crypt walls and roof, bases, thinner obelisk parts)
I find it surprising that there's no free, high-quality printable basic walls downloadable anywhere - so I decided to create such and share them. These dungeon (or castle) walls are partially uneven structure, like they were very old, and this way work better as cave wall or cliff.
The photo below shows the walls in use; they have been altered a little bit after printing these walls but they are very close to these.
