One of my latest loves has nothing to do with videogames. Actually, one may argue that videogames, RPGs in particular, owe homage to the age old practice of tabletop gaming. In my case, the tabletop game of choice has always been Dungeons and Dragons.
I’ve been running various campaigns over the last couple of years, and one of the things that I’ve tried to do is make the big setpiece battles more interesting. Not only from a mechanical perspective in terms of the game’s mechanics, but also from a visual perspective. Either some work in Photoshop, or physical objects that include actual puzzles, carts, elaborate dioramas and other odds/ends.
Once I started doing that, there was no stopping. I’ll pay my respects to someone called “DM Scotty” whose DMCraft Youtube channel inspired me to go out and get my first glue gun. So here are a few creations that I’ve done in the last while. (click on the images to view full or use HoverZoom).
