Papercraft is cool. Also, feel free to share tales of your D&D adventures.

Gee and here I thought the mods finally got the permanent ban hammer and hit you with it. Nice to know you are still floating around out there.

I was more worried that his wife saw his full collection and hid his body under the weight of his models .

It is heartening to see all the kind responses after so long away. Once I have a moment I may see about a new hobby blog or something.

Papercraft is perfectly acceptable. Pix of some of your work. We expect this, of course.

And yes D&D is a major time sponge.

Good to see you back.

Paint rack. Just cleared off the desks and decided to put this together. Cutting PVC straight is hard. Fortunately I found a ~25 dollar adjustable rotating pipe cutter for about 6 bucks on clearance, yay.

The fit is too tight but it'll be easier to keep track now.

I'll probably make a new hobby blog and put a link here when that happens but I may wait till fall, prepping to run these con games is eating my spare time.

Once the paint rack was set up, I wanted to try it out.

I'm running a few D&D sessions for Salukicon, a local con which happens to take place at my alma mater. I found my collection of PC minis somewhat lacking, especially in the newer races like tieflings and dragonborn. Also, not many halflings or lady dwarves. So I bought some. Also, they had Minsc and and his new friend from the comics so I had to get those too.

Colors chosen somewhat inline with the theme of the pregens i'll be handing out, somewhat randomly. Staged in an Inn/building built out of foamcore with some mantic scatter bits. Need to get a photo setup again.




More later, but aside from some dungeon tiles, I'm gonna be neck deep in story/statblocks/less visually appealing paper (or, increasingly, digital in my case) for awhile.

Very nice group shots! Love seeing the set ups.

I always give some colour theming to my PCs too, it just makes them much easier to identify from a distance.

Yeah, color helps.

I saw there was a new bones Kickstarter coming but honestly I'd almost rather dump a hundred bucks on ~20 nolzurs/Pathfinder deep cuts packs. They're sharper (sometimes) and often a little truer in scale vs reaper.

Wanted some wood floor tiles for various interiors. Didn't like my foam effect so I got some printed wood grain paper and added more lines, pasted, and trimmed. Then worked the grid back in. The walls were around before though the wallpaper one is new. Gonna switch from foamcore for them to just cutting 2"x5"x1/8" strips of insulation foam. The proxxon makes all things possible. Also way faster, can mill a bunch of pieces in steps way quicker than measuring and hobbyknifing the foamcore.

So some more minis and the floors and walls. Only need interiors, I splurged on battle systems latest Kickstarter so my town/outdoors is gonna be super solid (got a lot of trees already).


Automatically Appended Next Post:
Looking at the pictures, I either need to cut some walls to incorporate Mantic doors or make some hanging bits to go over the top.

Good effect on the floors even though the squares for the map make my flooring design skills cry.

Yeah they look better without a grid but something about DND scenery makes me want one. I mean I grew up on 40k, tapes and rulers are no strangers to me but for some reason I like the little squares for RPGs.

Something like... Why am I making tiles if they don't have a grid. I should just make a full building. Of course that's an entirely different kettle of fish, doesn't pack as well, and doesn't have the grid I seem to want.

Switching gears to keep up with a weekly game (and a couple of con games) has left my hobbying in a weird place really.

I nearly always forget to take photos while playing, too much else going on. Here's one though.

You just need to add a new phase into your game system. The take photo phase. It goes right after combat resolution but before removing casualties.

The printed wood grain is very effective, I thought it had been carved in. The alternative is piles of work, so kudos for trying something a bit simpler and more effective.

I just need to remember to snap photos sometimes, can interrupt the narrative flow just to take pictures in an organized fashion. Best to fit it in when someone is hemming and hawing on their turn. D&D here, I've not played anything else in awhile.

Da Boss, thanks . Running a weekly game has led me to be quite stingy with my time. Anything that saves me some time I can spend elsewhere is desirable.

Finally got some nuln oil to try, and one of those new fangled contrasts. May finally get to use them next month.

Hemming and Hawing ought to beget a wandering monster roll... with a handful of dice.

I started playing D&D way back in '78. That's how we rolled BITD. A very different style of play than what one generally encounters nowadays.

Those are some effective bits of terrain. The lower walls are almost a necessity for D&D and related RPGs.
