Building some terrain on a snowy day: 1/4 scale.

Recommended Posts

I decided to build some terrain on a a snowy day.

It started as a cave for a monkey spirit:  10:38 am 



A few hours later I expanded it to a tower with battlements,  Nathvarr came out for a look-see. 3:23 pm 



Then some princess finally came out to help.   With more occupants some expansion was necessary. 4:20 pm 





Then I had to go make dinner.  The princesses took possession, later inviting a young prince to help. 

The castle survived their occupation. 


2 days later:

That's a hefty piece to bring to the table.  What did you use for the snow?  It looks absolutely real!


I found the material on the side of the road. I think it was a 2:1 mixture of H and O.

a woman was pushing it around with her truck but had lost interest by the time I started working with it. 

She did come back later and take pictures. 



Nice way to combine work and quality parenting time!


Monkey Spirit ended up with 3 changes of pants, because some of the material melted into puddles, which needed vigorous exploration.

The Princess was stuck in her personal library most of the day, and required persuasion to assist.  (she finished a dozen books since a trip to the library on Tuesday.)  She also wrangled the monkey spirit during some of the construction phases. 


It is supposed to be a warm day today, with more material arriving tomorrow.  A second day of work is warranted I think.

More contrast if you want to win an award! Lol :;):


Seriously this is awesome and brings back memories of building forts in the snowbanks when I was growing up in Northern Michigan. Very COOL ! ::):

Final pictures: 

built the second tower in a great burst of energy this morning but by afternoon the whole castle was sagging. 

Two of the princesses returned to help, but instability made it less fun to play on. 


Hopefully we get more snow and less rain tonight. 


at 6' high and 16 ' long it is my largest snow creation.

Pushed out the left wall, carved out more of the lower room (until I saw daylight), replaced the melting battlements 

and added some rear walls. completing the rear wall would probably kill a bush. 


Now really, now I'm done.

      Just a random collection of recently painted 3D prints.  All of these are from a slightly modified Creality Ender-3

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!




      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads






      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.

      Looks interesting for the terrain, if not the miniatures. Two armies package includes two 20"x20" fortresses for less than $100.
      There are a couple of things that give me pause, though. First time creator, and claims to be in Chicago but English is clearly not his first language. May not mean anything but makes me wonder.

      "After over three years in the making, we are proud to present you the Eternal Eight - a WORLD'S FIRST 3D mini war game with innovative real 3D RELIEF. 
      The goal of the game is to  capture the enemy’s King. The advantages of Eternal Eight are the 3D castles, fortresses and villages with a myriad of traps, labyrinths and  secret passages. All of the army bases (castles, villages, fortresses) are easy to assemble and move around.
      The game can be easily incorporated into your existing game table setup or provide a great addon to some of your existing mini war games."

      Stumbled across this and thought it might be of interest to some folks here.  Be a different way of putting together woods and stuff for traditional wargaming.
      Pretty much the entire 'leader' page is GIFs so I'm not going to try and copy it over to here.
