Sacred Sites - Resin Models for Gamers

Recommended Posts



About this project


We are wanting to produce resin scenic models for a Sacred Sites range. Think of the burial tomb of a revered ancient hero, sealed behind stone slabs. Or a circle of standing stones half as old as time, hallowed by long dead priests. Or a weathered summoning circle in the depths of a lost valley, a place of sacrifice and worship, now only remembered only by the Old Gods.

We want to create these places for tabletop gamers with resin cast models. Whether you want something extra for your roleplaying sessions, or are looking for evocative scenery for the fantasy battlefield, these models will add character and mystery to your gaming world.


We are offering three different designs.

The first is a set of six Standing Stones, comprising a pair of small stones, a pair of leaning stones and a pair of tall stones. They can be placed in a circle, in parallel lines to flank a pathway, or dotted irregularly across the landscape. Each stone is on a 2"/5cm diameter base and measure upto 2.5"/6cm high.

Our second design is the Barrow Tomb, a humped burial mound sealed with a stone portal entrance. With inspiration taken from historic Neolithic sites, the design will give the ideal resting place for the bones of dead kings or the haunting place of wights.  It measures 6"/15cm long by 4.5"/11cm wide by 1.75"/4cm high.

And our third design is the Circular Dais set. The main piece of the set is a weathered stone platform (8"/20cm in diameter), with two low stepped levels. We also include four broken stone arch pieces (2"/5cm high with a base 1.75"/4cm long), which can be used to make two broken gates or placed to resemble gothic flying buttresses. Whether you are crowning a king at longest day or summoning evil monstrosities at midnight, the Circular Dais is the ideal model to set the scene.

We are also offering all three sets together for a complete Sacred Sites offer. Put Standing Stones around the Circular Dais for extra mystic effect, have the Barrow Tomb holding the bones of long dead kings nearby – the potential for creating different scenic sites is huge.

All of the models are designed by us and cast by us. We are also offering a limited number of models fully painted and flocked to the standard shown in the pictures.

      About
      My name is Andy, and I've been building miniature fantasy terrain since the 1980s. I have used my hand-made magnetic modular terrain for Dungeon Escape and Legendary Arena Battles at Eye of the Beholder Gaming Guild in Taylor, MI. My prototype pieces are on display at Acropolis Games in Adrian, and Get Your Game On in Ann Arbor. Many players have asked how they can take home magnetic terrain pieces to continue their adventure at home.
      I use Hirst Arts blocks (I am a fully licensed Hirst Arts dealer). The process is fun... but painfully slow, as each block must be cast individually, then glued together. To save time and effort, I've began making molds of ENTIRE ROOMS, so that they can be cast AS ONE SINGLE SOLID PIECE with no glueing. Instead of using delicate, breakable plaster, I have been casting using 57D Resin, with enormous success. Instead of building a room in several days, I pour the resin in the mold, and its finished in two minutes. I can cast the entire 29 piece dungeon in one hour. What took me weeks before, now takes only an afternoon.
      The 57D Resin is urethane rubber. It is slightly flexible, making it shatter-proof. The rooms can be dropped, and they will remain literally undamaged. No more chipping, cracking, or breaking! Say goodbye to handling delicate pieces. Since they come right out of the mold looking like granite, there is no paint to chip away or rub off. However, the material is paintable, should you choose to add your own dry-brush. Colors available are: Black Onyx, Black Granite, OrcSkin Gray, Gray Granite, White, White Granite, Frost, and Glow in the Dark.
      There is no glue involved in any of the pieces.
      The magnets are EMBEDDED directly inside the walls during the molding process, and cannot come loose, break off, or become lost. That makes our terrain suitable for kids of any age. Every terrain piece "snaps" together. 
      Players who already own Dwarven Forge sets will enjoy the fact that DrakenStone terrain meets up perfectly with their existing sets, making it the perfect compliment. The playing surface is exactly the same height, and the squares are exactly the same size as Dwarven Forge. 
      Please join us for a D&D 5E PVP one-shot game "Dungeon Escape", played Monday nights at 7pm, at Eye of the Beholder Gaming Guild, 12345 Telegraph Road, Taylor, MI. See the terrain being used in a real game. Or, watch us live on Facebook.
      Risks and challenges
      I have already created all the molds. I have already purchased the magnets in bulk. The last step is purchasing the 57D Resin. In pint-sized and gallon-sized units, the cost is very expansive... making the sale of sets to the public prohibitively expansive. However, in a 5-gallon, or even a 55-gallon drum, the cost of the resin is considerably less. Obtaining this bulk quantity of materials will keep the finished castle pieces at a low cost to customers. A 55-gallon drum of the 57D Resin costs $1,000.

      Here's my work on the "Tablescapes Dungeons-Mines" set from Secret Weapon Miniatures.

      The Goblins are all from "The Hobbit: Escape from Goblin Town" set, and the Dwarves are mixed manufacturer.  I just wanted to give it a little character...or some little characters.

      The next project should be a bit easier than the ships. Have brought 3 boxes of cardboard letters from Aldi. They are on sale and were part of their middle isle wedding stationery promotion. They spell "L OV E" not "F I R S T T R Y". 
       
      The idea is to make a temple wall complex/ set of sewer walls / set of docks. 
       
      When stacked together these are 5cm high, 20cm long and 15cm wide. I wanted some terrain that was modular, stackable, and tall enough to block line of site. Also that models could be pushed off. 
       
      I cut and stuck the L and the E together to make a "C" shaped Dock. Greenstuff rollers (bricks, and Ancestral Recall) applied to 5mm foam stuck to the walls and floor. There will be a grate in the bottom of one wall. Painting will just be black or brown mod podge then dry brushing. I am going to try and add some vines/flock/green weathering. 
       
      Am then going to make a series of arches out of the "O" letters. The middle of the O is the perfect size for a single based 28mm model. 
       
      The "V" will either be a redoubt or turned into straight walls with some waste.
