Sewer Entrance Tile

If you saw my blog post from earlier today, there's a chance that you might have noticed that the dungeon tile (that the miniatures where photographed on) doesn't appear in any of the current tile sets.

Well, if you did spot it (or have been following my recent G+ posts) you'll (hopefully) be pleased to know that you can get this new sewer tile by clicking HERE

Note that this new tile might eventually end up in a 'miscellaneous expansion pack' at some point in the future - but since I'm not really working on dungeon tiles at the moment,  I thought I'd share it now :)

Dungeon Creepers & Crawlers

A little while back I had a go at making a couple of tentacles miniatures from a cheap toy octopus (which can be seen in these three pictures 1 2 3), and since it didn't turn out too bad, I've been thinking of doing something similar with any other cheap toys that I find.

Well, a couple of weeks back I managed to pick up a pack of small bugs for £1 (from the local Poundland store)...

...and, admittedly, on their own they don't look like anything special:

The ant, maggot, and spider

But after super-gluing* them to some small mdf bases, 'flocking' those bases with the same cheap bird sand & grit that I used HERE, and giving them a quick coat of paint ...the finial result isn't so bad:

*note that I glued the 'feet' down individually, in order to reposition the legs slightly, and thus, get a slightly better pose can be seen on the finished spider miniature.

And, if you're thinking of creating a bunch of these yourself ...perhaps for use in an Age of Shadow encounter ...then I've also put together a quick monster description and statblock that will allow you to do just that :)

Dungeon Monthly (Sept 2014)

I think it's going to be a busy month I'm getting this one in early:

...and, as always, you can get unlabelled versions for all of these 'dungeon-monthly' maps in the following G+ albums:

Oh ...and here's a quick look at how you can piece all of this year's maps together (though it's worth noting that they can be put together in lots of different ways, and that they are compatible will all the geomorph-style maps that I've been posting here over the past few years):

Into the City: Map 3 (the bath-house)

My (somewhat ambitious, and possibly a little foolish) plan to draw enough building maps to eventually populate an entire settlement, continues to take shape with the release of another map-pack for the Into the City range...

Like those before it, this map-pack includes:
  • a pdf booklet containing a labelled version of the map.
  • an unlabelled jpg image of the building (scaled at 100 pixels per grid square
  • and a miniatures scaled battlemap of the map.
Into the City: Map 2 is available for $1.50 from RPGNow & DriveThruRPG

Into the City: Map 2

This week sees the release of another map-pack for the new Into the City range...

Just like the previous map-packs this product includes:

  • A pdf booklet containing labelled versions of each level of the building.
  • An unlabelled jpg image of each level (scaled at 100 pixels per grid square) - suitable for use with VTTs.
  • Miniatures scaled battlemaps for each level of the building.

Dungeon Monthly (August 2014)

I'm still (just about) managing to find time to squeeze in these little maps (and thus, keep the series going), without further ado, here's this month's dungeon map :)

...also note that unlabelled versions for all of these 'dungeon-monthly' maps can be found in the following G+ albums:

Into the City: maps for fantasy buildings

I'm very pleased to announce the start of a new range of building maps...

Each product in the Into the City range will map out the interior of a single fantasy building (usually over several levels), and supply those maps in the following formats:
  • a pdf booklet containing labelled reference maps (for the GMs use)
  • unlabelled VTT maps (scaled at 100 pixels per square)
  • miniatures scaled battlemaps (printable at 1 square = 1 inch)

(an example of one of the battlemaps printed in 'draft' quality on normal paper)

As of right now you can download Into the City: Map 0 for free (and sample the style and quality of the new range), and Into the City: Map 1 is available for just $1.50 (see the links below).

It's also my hope that, as the range expands, these maps will start to come together to form the basis of one of the towns/cities within the Age of Shadow setting ...but more on that as things progress.
