The BEST Modular Dungeon Tiles DIY Cardboard Terrain

I have been following the exploits of the DMG for some years now. In fact it was his You Tube videos that helped me when I first started creating furniture for my Warhammer Quest set.

So recently he has had a break but is now back creating a new method of creating the play area for D&D and I find it a dead interesting idea.

Having gone back into lockdown here in GB, playing D&D online is the only option. DMG's ideas giving a more theatrical backdrop method immediately appealed to me. While I won't be making exact copies of his work I will be taking his great ideas and applying them to my situation.

The great thing is that I can use the "backdrop" idea for online and live play. Looking forward to trying it out. Will be posting some backdrops shortly and how I am supporting them.

Human Warrior Flats


I finished drawing and inking a set of human warrior flats last week. The complete sheet above and some details below

These are different to ones I have made before as the arms are separate and so there is a variety of weapon choices.

There are medium, heavy and light armoured bodies, influenced by the Oathmark Human figures.
Archer, spearmen, swordsmen and double handed swordsmen can be made from the one sheet.

Half sheet views below. I draw out the front then fold the A4 sheet stick it up at the window, I don't own a light box, and trace round then draw in the backs.

Then I ink over the lot.

These are some Elves I made many years ago and painted with acrylics.

These are 3 flats I made from the villager drawings I made a while back and then hand drew weapons to see how they would look. I then water coloured them. They are better drawings then the elves, but not as brightly coloured. You can't have everything.

It was these that made me think about drawing the Human sheet as I was considering using them to create an Oathmark army. Still not too sure what I will do with them yet.

Warmaster 10 mm Orcs and Buildings


Bit of fun and an experiment really, this post.
Long time ago I painted some Flat Orcs, I used them as a Warhammer army until I got some actual models. However I kept the painted miniatures as they took a long time to do.

Recently I shrunk them on my printer, cut them out and laminated them and voila! I have a unit of orc warriors to add to my already huge collection.

They are quite obviously based on Orcs from the GW range from the late 80's and 90's, but all are draw and painted by me.

I had to draw a standard as I didn't have one and glued it on.

Also the buildings I made the other week, also in 10 mm have been painted and tufted.

Both together for size.

I don't do things by half, here are the orc backs to complete the unit.

Would like to make about 9 or 10 buildings eventually.

They took a while to cut out, and glue together, probably about the same as painting the miniatures from GW that I have.

I go round the copies with a black pen to get rid of the white bits, but it seems I have managed to miss some all the same. Doh!

All in all they're OK, they are really practise for the High Elf flats I have painted. Can't afford to buy Warmaster miniatures so may make an Elf force in a similar manner.
