Medieval Ruins 2

These three pieces fit together...

This next piece has a removable top and shack...

 And treasure! The Mystical Shield of Thomar Nolper patiently waits to be found behind a small barrel.

Some scatter pieces I made for cover...

THAT'S IT! Time for YOU to make stuff!

Medieval Ruins 1

Nothing spectacular here, just some ruins I made using my usual techniques (see METHODS>Chumley's 1 and 2).

This next pair fit together...
These two fit together as well...

Each of the buildings has a rolled scroll, a critter, and some piece of treasure, all waiting to be discovered by a brave explorer...
A scroll under the attic flooring and a giant red spider in the rafters.
Looks like Mr. Honks will soon find the Book of Obsequiousness in the rubble.
(more to come)

Small Guard House

I made two little buildings for my good friend Gary Price for Iron Mask Miniatures Dwarf Musketeers games at the Pacificon gaming convention in Northern California over the 2015 Labor Day weekend. Here's a photo he sent me for reference but said he would like them to be 60mm tall (without finial) with openings around 30mm wide by 40mm tall.

They were easy to make. Here are the end results:
The walls are chipboard (stiff thin card). Detail is dollhouse trim and balsa strips. Each side was made individually, then they were glued together with a reinforcing basswood strip added at each inside corner.
The roofs are also chipboard with copper wire super glued on. Finial is a round toothpick with a small wooden bead and a plastic craft bead. The side windows are slices of plastic tubing. The building was painted as well the roof, which was then glued to the building. That's all it took to make them!

These small structures have many uses…
I'm not sure if the sign refers to the owner's name or his wares. Probably both.
No, I don't need any knuckle sandwiches, thank you very not.
