GaryCon Cometh

  Well GaryCon is just around the corner. Two years of pulling together the waterfront/harbor set-up that’s been rattling around in my brain pan is finally coming together. Still lots to do. Most of my weeks as of late has bee spent casting, painting and scrounging up more bits for the event that will debut […]

Light House Progress Report

Hooray for long weekends and frigid temperatures. A great excuse to stay at home in the shop, relaxing with the dog, listening to tunes and sculpting. Made it my goal Saturday to finally finish up painting the light house I started last month.   Just a reminder — I started with a wooden birdhouse purchased […]

Progress report

You know this blog wasn’t intended to be JUST about making table top terrain, that’s just ONE of many categories I hoped to touch upon here. My plan is to discuss anything that happens to be on my mind on any given morning. Just so happens that as of late, I’m usually thinking to terrain. […]

Harbor Light House Update

  I mentioned a few weeks ago that I was transforming this birdhouse I picked up at Michaels into a lighthouse. It’s been slow going – I’ve only been working on it thirty minutes at a time here and there. But with the snow storm over the weekend I finally had some time to sit […]

Paint and Play

  Haven’t had much free time to work on terrain as of late – too many pressing deadlines. But I have managed to set aside thirty minutes each morning to devote to painting up some of the projects that have been piling up on my shelf. I’m painting up a set of my dock/pier pieces […]

My next project: Harbor Light House

So here’s my next weekend project. Recently I was at Michaels and spotted this little bird house (9 inches high) fashioned to look like a light house. I had already been thinking of doing a follow up to the Pringles Tower but wanted to do somethign a bit different. It occured to be the bird […]

Building a Roto Caster

So lately, I’ve been looking at a lot of do it yourself plans on making a roto caster. A year ago I didn’t even know what a roto caster was — now I REALLY want one. Why…? So I can cast some of my larger pieces (like one of my larger ships and a stone […]

Day’s Big Find: Swing for the Fences

  Great find, I wanted to share with you. Noticed some picket fence material at Michaels. $3.00 for 36 inches. I immediately saw adventurers crossing a rickety swinging bridge and bit. When I got home, I realized just how suitable the material is for such a mod. The wire is braided and stiff enough hold […]

The Mountain Fortress

This one is for Dave Gross, my former boss. Dave was editor of Dragon Magazine back in the 90’s and the guy who ushered Knights of the Dinner Table into that zine  and made one my bucket lists come true (getting published in Dragon). It also gave KODT a much needed boost in exposure, a wave I’m still […]
