So, not too long ago, I was GMing a table of Pathfinder's Silverhex Chronicles at a convention called GameCon. I had a plain map on which I'd drawn with marker and I had my minis ready to go. Meantime, two tables down from me, there was a fellow who had props of Sphinx-like statues, statues of Horus, 3-D buildings, a multilevel building, and generally, a while lot more than just a map. I stood there (I'm one of those standing GMs) waiting for people to come play while he relaxed and watched everyone who came by at least look over his table and his table had filled up and started a good half hour before I had my first player. Decision time came. I need props! Terrain pieces, to be specific. The Silverhex Chronicles start in a cemetery, so that's how I started. The first shot will show all the pieces I made yesterday. Following this, we have close-ups of the 3 burial plots, the tree (I was going for a baby Womping Willow) and the sarcophagus that opens, the 4 fence posts, and then a random crate that isn't actually part of this, but something that can come in handy as a terrain piece. I'll still be doing some smoothing and sanding on it which I think will give it more of a "used" look. I'll be using Green Stuff to add more embellishment to the sarcophagus and possibly the tombstones. I'll also use my mold-making stuff to create additional fence posts and burial plots. Enjoy the photos and feel free to offer compliments, comments, and critiques. EDIT: Just glanced over the pictures and realized how lopsided the fence posts look. They're on my daughter's hoodie (the red background) and I guess it wasn't sitting level. They do sit flat :=)
Here's another diorama I did many years ago. It features a Citadel Necromancer and his Snotling acolyte attacking a Ral Partha's Fearless Frost Dragon. I painted the Dragon as a Black Dragon with his skin slowly rotting, affected by a necromantic spell. The stone fence posts, stone walls, gates and tombstones are from the Woodland Scenics Maple Leaf Cemetery box kit.

Scooby might play a Ranger, Shaggy a Rogue, Freddy a Paladin, Daphne a Cleric, Velma a Mage, and of course the Mystery Machine would be a Pack Donkey. Velma: "Jinkies! The Mystery Mule lost a shoe." Daphne: "Maybe there's a ferrier at that castle?" Freddy: "Scooby and Shaggy can scout out the castle and see if there's a blacksmith." Shaggy: "Like NO Way man, I'm not going through no spooky graveyard to some old creepy castle, uh Uh." Scooby: "Mree rethier! I did my best to stay true to the character's colors for identification.
