Posted in Interviews on January 13th, 2012 by Svenn
Full Board

Super Dungeon Explore!

With my new found obsession with Super Dungeon Explore I love to see what people are doing with the miniatures. So when I found the Super Dungeon Explore boards made by Tyson Koch of FigurePainters.com I was just blown away. These boards look fantastic and they really give off the feeling of a great dungeon crawl.

As I usually do when I find something that inspires me, I contacted Tyson for an interview. Read on for the full interview, and don’t forget to check out his site for more pictures of not only the Super Dungeon Explore board but tons of other amazing works as well!

Interview: doobrady (Jon Law)

Posted in Interviews on March 8th, 2011 by Svenn

I happened across a very interesting tabletop gallery the other day. It really caught my attention as it went above and beyond simple painting and terrain techniques to create an amazing looking atmosphere that really gave me a sense of immersion that I had not felt with tabletop gaming before. This was Jon Law’s Atmospheric Wargaming gallery. Through the use of smoke effects and localized lighting he was able to create some amazing looking scenes.

I have been intrigued by the idea of using non-conventional means and methods of expanding a wargaming table for a while now. However, until now I’ve never seen it used in this capacity with a full table. I was just blown away by the whole thing. As is usual when I find something so great, I secured an interview with the man behind it so read on to find out more!

Amazing Miniature Hobbit Hole

Posted in Site News on April 22nd, 2010 by Svenn

I don’t normally make posts like this, but this I felt warranted the attention. Maddie Chambers over at Mad’s Hobbit Hole has made a miniature Bag End hobbit hole replica from the Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring movie. It is simply amazing. It may not be directly related to tabletop gaming, but it is still a beautiful piece of miniature scenery. As both a huge Lord of the Rings fan and a fan of miniature tabletop scenery this is just a very exciting piece.

But don’t just take my word for it, here are a couple sample pictures:

Interview: Sean Patten (Iron Hands/Necromundicon)

Posted in Interviews on January 5th, 2010 by Svenn

We’ve got a really special treat for this next interview. Sean Patten’s work has been a huge inspiration for me, especially as I’ve gotten back into Mordheim. The Mordheim section he has over at his site Necromundicon is all just amazing. It’s not just about his Mordheim terrain though, as he has created scenery for everything from Mordheim to Warhammer 40k to Star Wars games! On top of all this, he’s even put together several sets of rules for games both in the Warhammer 40k setting and in the Star Wars setting. You can find the rules over at Iron Hands.

As if all of that is not enough, he’s done hand made costumes and props as well! He is truly a talented individual. I highly recommend that you all check out his site, as the few pieces that I’ve shown here are just a small portion of the amazing work that he has done.

We had a very good response to the first interview so it looks like we’ll be continuing the segment. This time we’re going with someone a little more focused on rules. cianty is one of the creators of the Border Town Burning supplement to Mordheim. He has had his hand in various other Mordheim projects as well. He is also a moderator on Tom’s Boring Mordheim Forum, the Specialist Games Forum and the Mordheim Yahoo group. On top of all this, he does excellent work with miniatures and especially terrain. So, here we go with our second interview!

Interview: DeafNala (Alan Preuss)

Posted in Interviews on November 4th, 2009 by Svenn

UPDATE! DeafNala has decided to use the Tabletop Geeks galleries for hosting photos of his work. You can see tons of his stuff over at The Mercenary Minis of DeafNala… & Stuff.

Yesterday I promised you a new feature and today I deliver! Our new feature will be interviews with prominent community members and hobbyists displaying their works and letting you get to know them in the process. There were a couple of reasons behind this idea. The first was simply to highlight some great works and to get to know the people behind them. The other big reason was to give people ideas, inspirations, and maybe even some tips from people who are experienced hobbyists.

First House Attempt [round 1]

Posted in Buildings, Small Blocks, Terrain, Work In Progress on July 8th, 2009 by tewfik
Final struture with broken walls

Final structure with broken walls

FINALLY!!! Now that we have a finalized idea for our Flagstone, we can start building buildings and other terrain features to fill the blocks for the table.

So far the first building has turned out well, although I built it completely backwards. For starters I glued the entire house together before cutting out the windows, or “breaking” the walls, which just made it more time consuming then if I had cut them out when the walls were still flat.

Currently the house is very clean looking and still missing many details, I plan to add more trimwork around the walls, and I have already started making the the floor look like wood planks, as well as trimming the corner pieces slightly so they dont look so perfect (which will be seen in the next post).

New Flagstone Pics

Posted in Terrain on July 7th, 2009 by Svenn

I took some new pictures of the flagstone in the natural light today. These pics show off the colors much better, and as a bonus they’re not blurry! I got a couple pictures outside in the shade and a picture in direct sunlight for comparison. You can really see the texture and the variety of colors in these images. Enjoy!

Foamcore Building Update

Posted in Buildings, Terrain, Work In Progress on June 30th, 2009 by Svenn
Spackled

Spackled

I have been able to do a little bit of work on the foamcore building recently. I am in the process of testing out various methods for the walls right now. I picked up some lightweight Spackle for texturing and so far it seems to be great. The textured look is great, and it seems pretty tough. It’s also really easy to carve out of if necessary.

In addition to the Spackle I also tested out a method for doing a chipped away look with the underlying framework showing. This consisted of cutting away the top layer of paper on the foamcore, then drawing in a brick pattern on the foam with a pen. When combined with the Spackle it really gives the look of a broken wall with the brick framework showing. You can also see on the left side of the window where I added in a small crack in the wall. This is pretty easy to do with the Spackle and a sharp knife. Read more »

Better Cobblestone Pictures

Posted in Terrain on June 15th, 2009 by Svenn

Since I struggled to get a good picture of the final cobblestone with the lighting I had before, I rushed home today to take pictures while it was still light outside. Here are a few more pics of the final cobblestone in natural light and without a flash. They look a lot better this way, and a lot darker, but for some reason it looks more blue than it really is. Anyway, check out these new pics. Read more »
