While I’m not going to go into too many details here, i have to say that following The DMs Craft (Check out DM Scotty’s forum and his Youtube channel) makes it very easy to realize some of the visual aspects you wish you could convey to your players. Also, it kind of adds that extra “wow” to the gaming session.
So, without rambling on, here are some pictures of how i turned cardboard and hot glue into battle encounter set pieces.
Now what they look like after they’re painted.
I’ve been making more of these for my home games and i’ve been trying to keep a semi-photo/video log on how they are created. I don’t have the set up or space to make a “how to” video like DM Scotty or Black Magic Craft (and all the other wonderful channels out there that have tutorials on how to build gaming terrain); I’ll post what i have here.
Like i mentioned before, if you want to learn how to make something like this then check out The DMs Craft, or even Black Magic Craft on youtube. It seems daunting, but other than the painting, it’s pretty straight forward.
