Awesome 3D Space Hulk

February 2, 2009 is the home to an awesome 3D Space Hulk set up. He also includes a lot of info about how he made the terrain. And he’s from Stuttgart, my wife’s home town!

Vibrating Table

January 7, 2009

I’ve been working on a vibrating table for the last couple of weeks (around holidays, family and campaign terrain), based on Ultrawerke’s. I’ve wanted to do something like this for a while, and after seeing his, I realized I had pretty much all the parts he used. The only things I actually had to buy was the “shadowbox” frame I got on sale for $10 and a couple bucks worth of springs.

December 28, 2008

Here are pictures of the current state of my December terrain for our Trucidos campaign. It’s down to the wire for me, but I have a few more evenings left to finish. I’m glad December has 31 days!


Green Stuff Press Mold

December 24, 2008

Tabletop Terrain

December 23, 2008

Tabletop Terrain can suck up a lot of your time, even if you don’t play the games covered. There are a lot of nice terrain ideas there, and don’t miss the tutorials. He uses Ultracal 30 for his Hirst molds, may have to try that.

Chicago Terrain Factory has a lot of informative articles. There’s some nice pictures of his Hirst Arts projects, info on resin casting, and more. I really like his tournament markers.
