Grim’s Dungeons of Doom: Restore 2 Stamina; Miniature provision markers.

31 Oct



If you remember In most Fighting Fantasy books from the distant past, you always had the opportunity to heal your depleted Stamina score by munching on your provisions that you either had already, or simply found during the course of your adventure. So with this episode of Grim’s Dungeons of Doom, that’s what we’re going to create.

So, with that in mind I had to come up with something I could use during games to represent such found munchies as and when (Think of the computer game “Gauntlet” and I’m aiming for that sort of thing.) I’ll be making other markers in this way (Keys ,Treasure, poisoned provisions, corpses etc) but this one has much more application in other models beyond just the markers.

So, happy halloween readers, I thought I’d share this with you. Yes it seemed appropriate to post this up seeing as though it’s the season of all things ghostly.

Of course, I’m not expecting that you’ll believe, I know what happened and it was one of the creepiest paranormal experiences I’ve ever been witnessed to….

Grim’s Dungeons of Doom: Scraping the barrel, making mini barrels.

25 Oct



Every self respecting cheesy stock fantasy dungeon environment needs barrels? Right? Well, in this part of Grim’s Dungeons of Doom, I’m going to show you how to create whatever barrels you need for your games.

Me personally if I had loads of spare cash to buy my terrain bits, I would get lots of them, in all shapes and sizes, but why buy them if you can crank them out at a cost of mere pennies? Let me show you…. We’re going to have a barrel of fun….(Pic heavy…)

As bloggers it’s great to share quality content with our readership, so it’s great when the opportunity comes along to take a step back from our own blogs and hand over to others for top notch advice and how to’s.
So with that in mind, here’s an excellent tutorial for terrain builders here, reblogged with permission from

I have often hankered for a set of modular cobblestone road sections for use with my 28mm WW2 (Bolt Action) project. The visual effect of cobblestone adds a certain level of detail and intricacy to an urban tabletop, more so than gravel or paved roads. I prefer to scratch-build as much as possible, not only due to cost but also because I enjoy the creative process. With this in mind I embarked on a grand experiment to construct a set of modular cobblestone road sections in 28mm scale.

My first hurdle to overcome was how to mass produce a cobblestone pattern in an easy and affordable manner. I considered several options, including cutting small cobble shaped pieces of card and laying them like mosaic (far too effort intensive), scoring the pattern by hand into the base (would not look as nice, and too dangerous). I ultimately settled on finding a…
