Last year I spend a lot of time doing basic terrain pieces such as dungeon tiles, game boards, generic scatter and furniture. This year I have more freedom in exploring funner things like this configurable gaming board and funky little Dungeons & Dollhouses pieces. And because of this freedom, I’m now able to steer our […]
I’m actually not sure that these are from Wizards. But they will be handy to beef up weaker enemies that don’t really scare my players anymore… such as goblins.
I had a container I got with a perfume bottle. I though the container was an interesting size for a small shabby hut and I liked the tall base which was perfect for the floor. I never quite understood the idea of only removing the roof on terrain houses as you still have the walls […]
When I paint scenery bits I don’t paint them by where I’ve bought them so sometimes i end up with a bundle like this. Some indoors, some outdoors, some from Zealot Miniatures and some from The Battle Forge Not sure where I got food bits for this table from.
Last year, when I picked Dungeons & Dragons up again for the first time in 20 years, I fell back on how I used to do terrain for the battlefield for tabletop wargames. For the original dungeon tiles we used in Chapter 2 and 3 I cut a grid with a knife, painted it all with […]
UPDATE 16 DEC 2019 I never got around to really use these. As a gaming tool they are too limiting and putting on a shelf for display is not something I do so I’ve cut them to bits and repurposed them as terrain scatter. ORIGINAL POST So.. I actually didn’t think I […]
Following on from my Dungeons & Dragons MEGA POST – My 2018 painted miniatures! and Dungeons & Dragons MEGA POST – The games we played in 2018! I wanted to capture all the terrain and scenery I either bought and painted or built and painted. My experience with building scenery has mainly been limited to tabletop wargames so by […]
My players don’t like mimics. I do! And honestly, how can you not love this crazy-ass Gazebo Mimic. Amazing! One thing that bugged me about this miniature was there was no thought given to how the panel with the Mimic face could be removed and reattached. It feels like the sculpture assumes that the owner […]
I guess the easiest and most common way to use tea lights as terrain scatter, is to wrap or paint them as is so you essentially get tea light shaped objects such as the lights in use for my Posh Ball Terrain Board set. But I wanted to try something else that would hide the […]
I stumbled across this little amazing piece of scenery at Salute 2018 – I didn’t really know what to use it for at the time, but I am glad I bought it as it fits my upcoming D&D Christmas Oneshot… and it is now out of production. As with my Medieval Tavern, the stoneworks is using […]
When it comes to bigger terrain features and boards, I normally build them myself. It comes from a long history of being a tabletop wargamer where terrain by and large is: The board, some hills for troops with ranged weapons and some walls/ruins for everybody else to hide behind! With Dungeons & Dragons, the scenery […]
At the time of making this set, our campaign had mainly taken the adventurers out in the wild. Forrests, dungeons, a small village here and there… you get the idea. But I wanted to switch gear and had two specific type of gaming sessions in mind: First of all make a cerebral mystery type session […]
