The Happy Spender: Forest Terrain from Tabletop Modellbau

Since my new D&D campaign will be the Kingmaker campaign (in a gridless Pathfinder variant) I bought a lot of stuff from Tabletop Modellbau

I  think this will be pretty great for all the above ground/forest encounters featured in Kingmaker. Don't get me wrong,I still like the good ol' battle map from Hotz Maps:


But I always wanted to explore the possibilities of gridless D&D and I thought about investing in a lot of Terranscapes products for the new campaign or build my own stuff. But this new range of modular tabletop terrain is even created and produced in Germany, just a few miles away from my location (roughly a 3 hour drive away) and gets delivered to my front door without the hassle of going to the customs office and paying extra import taxes etc.
I especially like the river parts and the ability to create multiple levels. I also bought add-ons to build even higher hills and thus having the ability to create 3 to 4 levels on the gaming table.


I really can't wait to see what kind of combinations I will be able to build and how much Dwarven Forge I can sneak into each setup. :)

The Happy Spender: The Coaching Inn and the Town House II from Tabletop World

I recently bought the Couching Inn and the Townhouse II from Tabletop World.
As always the quality of the buildings is superb, very little to no cleanup is required before painting.
And they look amazing:

I've worked on a few things these past few days and here are some snapshots of the finished pieces:



It was really great to paint again and I really hope that I can show you a lot more new stuff in the coming weeks. :)

On the Worktable: The City Graveyard

I'm working an a modular city graveyard setup for my gaming table. These are a few WIP shots of various pieces:


The walkways (and various other things on other boards) are made with Hirst Arts blocks. All boards are based on a 10 mm (0,39 inches) piece of Styrofoam.  Some parts are removable:





While I used small Hirst Art floor pieces to create a walkway this board will instead get a dirt walkway in the later stages of the WIP. Again the mausoleum is removable:



This piece is actually also a part of a scenery board for the presentation of my undead army. And since the Graveyard Board fits the theme of the scenery board perfectly I will creaty several pieces like this that allow me to remove the scenery to insert miniatures.

I'm also working on some buildings for the Graveyard Board:

On the Worktable: Micro Art Studio District 5 Apartments

I had a hard time deciding which paint theme I wanted to use on my Micro Art Studio District 5 Apartments:


In the end I think the version on the right looks best. But I'm still a bit worried that a complete table may look to dark because of all the low-keyed colors I want to use o represent a dark Cyberpunk/Blade Runner style. Time will tell...

This is my result so far:

Still very much a WIP. But I like where this is going.
