Well, I hope that the new year is treating you all well, and that you enjoyed your festivities.

Today’s Grim’s Dungeons of Doom tutorial is another dead easy one, level riser tiles to elevate your dungeon to a higher level! These simple to make tiles will add an extra dimension to your set ups, and will create much more options when making your set-ups.

All you’ll need for this structural addition to your dungeon set up is some cardboard boxes, cereal box card, other assorted discarded boxes, glue, textured wallpaper, lollypopsticks or other wooden type sticks (both optional), plus paint for undercoat and finishing. Continue reading

In this edition of Grim’s Dungeons of Doom, we are going to deal with the creation of bone piles for our mini dungeon. These can be used as debris or even better (as I plan on doing) as undead respawn markers. Every respectable dungeon should have a few of these to warn those pesky adventurer types, just how they might end up by delving too deep within it’s tunnels…

This is a dead easy and quick make, and will get you some nice looking pieces for really minimal effort.  Continue reading

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 http://redoverblue.net.

 

Crowdfunding Spotlight: Table Top Blocks Kickstarter

20 Oct

Compared to the Encounter elements set from the previous crowdfunding spotlight, this terrain block system looks like something you’d find in a primary school (very similar to the counting block type learning toy you do still find, trust me, I have two under 7’s!) Again some of you will be calling me the Simon Cowell of the gaming crowdfunder reviewers and coming across negatively, but fate will conspire to put a spanner in the works, especially when you consider the untimely nature of the starting of both similar gaming block systems at the same time period. All I can think is that it’s got to hurt either one or both. Personally I think the Encounter elements set is the clear winner here in look and style.

Although this set wins out on colour choices to represent different terrain, it does so with absence of any real visual appeal, this is even more basic than the last, but at least the previous had more to it. Also I think what scores against it for me, is the blue ones look very similar to the cold packs you get inside cooler bags and boxes!

I told you! Look, its not my intention to pull down an active project in case it effects its cause, but I’m just being honest, anyway thats how this whole thing works, simply by putting this up for the world to see and hopefully fund, indeed we are possibly setting one self up for a fall (Trust me, I tried and made an epic fail, so I know it aint easy)

Check out the vid and visit the link for the whole pitch for your cash, and as ever, let me know what you think in the comments below.
