Craft Time: Combination Dice Tower, Tray, Miniatures Stand, and Pencil Holder

Starting a new D&D Campaign, so I figured I’d whip myself up a new game aid.

It’s all Cardboard, Alluminum Foil, and a lot of Hot Glue

PostApocalOptimus Prime – WIP Scratch Built 40K Ork Vehicle

A boy, some cardboard, and a desire to make something Orks could use to get across the battlefield

Started with some thin card

and more thin card

Fold and glue that card into something shaped vaguely like Optimus Prime

Forget the enclosed back section, as it would prevent the boyz from firing their guns wildly everywhere

Driver section should probably be enclosed

Something along the lines of a Garbage Truck

Too much open space up front

Divider creates windowed sections

Side doors would probably help as well

Some reinforcements along the back also add more texture

Can’t decide which way the back section should be facing

Quickie Terrain – Radar Dish WIP

Saw these bits in my bitz box and within minutes later I had a new piece of terrain

Took step by step photos

Buildable Warhammer 40K Aegis Defense Line Prototype

This is the most basic version of the defense line. Printed on card stock and mounted to foam core. Perfect for filling that fortifications slot on a shoe string budget.

It stacks easily, is the simplest to assemble, and works pretty well.

There is an additional version with support struts, to make it more stable.

I’ve also worked out additional layers of detail to be glued to thin card to make it more 3 dimentional.

I’ll have pics of the other versions and a Printable PDF so you can make your own soon.

With the addition of deployable fortification in 40K 6E I decided I needed to make me some new terrain.
