LOVE The Dungeon. That is the sort of gaming area I dreamed of all the years I was an AD&Der. It is just an OUTSTANDING board. VERY WELL DONE!

Thanks guys, it's for mage knight so the tiles are 1.5 inch, instead of the 1 inch.  Makes it a bit larger than I would make for a D&D dungeon crawl.  I have thought about finishing it for Frostgrave's underground expansion use.  I still have 3 more tiles midway through completion on a shelf.  Maybe I'll finish it after I finish the other 2-3 projects in the pipeline.


Picture of progress soon.

Ok, today's progress.   Finished up the wall that attaches the tower to the other parts I finished and the second floor anchors.  Then I notced a problem, the 2 piece I used for each floor piece aren't stable enough.  I will need to glue another piece or two of the small angled pieces to make it more stable.


Here is a closer look inside the tower with only 1/2 of the floor attached.


I also noted an interesting feature.  When the tower is opened up side by side it make a nice looking larger building ruin. Also a shot of it from the tower side.

That is BEAUTIFUL...for a ruin that is. It is not at all Lego-like; i.e., there are all sorts of interesting angles to the Beasty, AND nothing at all stiff or boring.

Some wooden flooring & broken support beams would be a nice touch. It is going to be a creation WONDROUS to behold. OUTSTANDING WORK!

A small update, more of a look what I've assembled to be assembled.  The lower arches are for the stair leading up to the tower.  The upper bricks are for what I'm calling the front wall.  More to be assembled tomorrow.

      Some friends are doing this, under their Infinite Dimensions Games, though I'm not involved. The Kickstarter will take place in March and is for digital files for 3D print. If I remember correctly there are no physical rewards. While people should hold off until the details of the crowdfund are released, my understanding is that the core set is done, any stretch goals will pay for the labour of doing the design/sculpting of those items only, so the core set would be ready as soon as funding period is over. 
      They have a Facebook and Instagram and more for lots of previews (but I'm not linking because I'm not sure what on those sites will break forum rules), and if anyone is attending BreakoutCon this year in Toronto, they will be there displaying.

      My birthday is imminent (precioussss), and my husband gave me this resin ship model from German manufacturer Gelaendestuecke.
      I've never done anything like this before: Never worked with resin, never made a ship model, never tried to figure out rigging and sails (they aren't included in the model and even the masts are just dowels at the moment).
      So ... Woohoo, I have no idea what I'm doing. But I figure it'll be fun figuring it out.
      Here's the box

      And the instructions in their entirety

      The hull and the deck

      The wooden bits, the mast, bowsprit, and railings

      The cabin has a few issues. Note the little spot the arrow points to. That becomes relevant later.

      It also has a big missing spot from a bubble in the back

      And a crack and missing piece on one side

      Okay, so here's how I've begun it.
      First I scrubbed the resin pieces with a toothbrush in very hot water and dish liquid. There was a nasty waxy substance under the hull which I assume is mold release.
      Once cleaned, the bottoms of the pieces were really shiny, which seemed like it would cause a problem with the epoxy adhering.

      But sanding resin is problematic. Its dust is very fine and lightweight and highly toxic. Bad stuff to breathe.
      So I sanded them underwater, with a few drops of dish liquid add to break the surface tension so the dust wouldn't float on the water. Resin really wants to float.

      Sanding on the cabin exposed a greasy, waxy white substance where that little splodge was, something like a white oil pastel, and kind of gross.

      Scraping it out exposed more of it within the resin and lost a few flakes of the surface. It can be seen, rather big in this picture of the ship as it is at present.

      And here's a side view.

      Recently I started playing Frostgrave Ghost Archipelago so my need for terrain has increased. One particular scenario in the rulebook caught my creative attention. It calls for a watchtower, so I figured I'd try my hand at building one. For the record this will be my first piece of terrain.
      I wasn't sure how I was going to build this piece and what exactly I was going to use. I remembered I had a leftover square "dowel" from when I built measurement sticks for Song of Blades and Heroes and I figured they would make pretty good supports for my tower. After deciding to use the dowel it didn't take much thought to realize I was going to make this piece out of toothpicks and popsicle sticks.
      Now I had to make a decision, would I build a ladder or a series of ramps? If I understand the rules of the game carrying a treasure halves your movement, climbing also halves your movement, and they stack. So if there is a treasure at the top of the tower (which the scenario calls for) it'll take a couple turns to climb down. With this in mind I opted for a series of ramps and platforms instead (my failed attempt at making a siege ladder also reinforced this idea).
      My watchtower so far.

      My failed attempt at a ladder.

      The platforms I decided to go with.

      The first ramp.
      I originally lumped this project in with my regular painting thread but I thought it deserved it's own thread (it is terrain after all), so here it is.
