Project Log: Wild West Exodus Harbor, Part 1

Posted on May 19th, 2018 under , , . Posted by

I’ve been building tables for the Wild West Exodus miniatures game pretty much since its inception. Every one has been a unique design that presented its own set of challenges.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This year Warcradle Studios has commissioned me to build a port city, complete with a ship docked in the harbor. In this project log, I will be documenting the progress of the table over the weeks between now and Gencon.

Well, that escalated quickly.  As I was working on the base for the Warscryer Citadel, I kept mulling over the idea that a second citadel would really enhance the first. Well, I bought one, so here we go…Read more »

Project Log: Warscryre Citadel, Part 3

Posted on April 10th, 2018 under , . Posted by

With the main citadel construction finished, It’s time to detail the interior of the tower. The task isn’t as daunting as it seems; building interiors don’t need to be very intricate because the intention is for models to fit inside. I need to cover the cavities, build the floor, and add just enough detail to make it convincing.

Project Log: Warscryre Citadel, Part 1

Posted on April 4th, 2018 under , . Posted by

The Skullvane Manse is a scenery kit that I have admired for years. When it was re-released as the Warscryre Citadel, I decided to pick one up. I’m not as interested in it for its Malign Portents rules as I am for the sheer size and grandeur of the kit itself. When assembling it, I decided to customize the details on the kit to better match the aesthetics of my undead legions. I’m documenting the progress in this project log so you can follow along and see how I accomplished everything.

Warcradle Studios commissioned me to build a table for their their Wild West Exodus miniatures game. The “Watcher Hive” was a pretty ambitious concept, involving a 4′ x4′ board representing the hive interior, lit with LED lighting, and a separate board representing the mountain exterior around the hive.


 

Today, we’ll take a look at the mountain exterior:

Dark Age Crystal Caverns

Posted on May 20th, 2017 under , . Posted by

Along with the Wrath of Kings board, the guys at CMON also commissioned me to build a board for the Dark Age miniatures game. They wanted a 4′ x 4′ cavern filled with glowing crystals, bottomless pits, and acid pools.



 

I drew a lot of inspiration from the natural caverns I’d visited in the past for the shape and color of the stalagmites and columns. The table came together over the course of a few months. Here’s a little peek behind the scenes…
