Portals - Terrain

I wanted to make some portals for wargaming - be it D&D or Warhammer, I thought it would be a neat idea to not just have standing stones, but an actual "open" portal within standing stones.

I began with pink insulation foam, carved with my utility knife.

I created a "energy" sort of thing using hot glue (tutorial will be posted shortly)

Assembly of the standing stones and texture.

Cut the hot glue to scale

For one of the portals, I carved into the "stone" to make it look more sinister.

Painting the lines red, then covering in black.

Then various shades of grey...

Painted the base and the portal itself - the portal is also painted with glow in the dark paint for effect while gaming.

Ready for flocking...

Fallout Shack

D&D Scale 

With the upcoming release of Fallout 4, I got the bug to design some Fallout themed terrain, beginning with a basic building. You might recognize this building if you've played Fallout: New Vegas before - it's the basic skin for most small "shack" buildings like The Grub and Gulp and Deputy Beagles shack in Primm.

The wood is tongue depressors and wooden stir sticks.

The base is foam core

The roof is corrugated cardboard
