Completed Housing Development

My big box of fantasy grows ever larger.  Because of the recent additions, I found it expedient to streamline all of my terrain boxes.  The collection now includes one box of general ground terrain (drop cloth, woods, roads, streams, etc.), one box of sci-fi specific terrain (billboards, buildings, urban...

Housing Development

I don’t know about this. In an effort to save some money, I bought resin houses for my fantasy villages that came in six flat pieces.  The guilty manufacturer shall not be named – they are likely a hobby outfit doing this in their spare time, so you’ll have...

Timber!

Sometimes these quick little posts represent a lot of work.  This isn’t one of those times.  My forests took a total of around four hours start to finish.  I’m a fan of the Toob Trees for my wargaming needs.  They are a little undersized, but at a buck each for...

Terrain Base Quick Hit

You may have noticed that my wizard’s tower included a wooden base.  That one was 3-mm thick wood, but after a recent pet shelf building exercise, I found myself left with a few extra pieces of MDF and Oh Em Gee is this stuff a lot easier to work...

The Tower of Skratch-Bi’ilt

Full confession:  I’ve spent a lot more money than usual on wargame terrain lately.  My side gig paid off, and I’ve dumped a lot of the extra dough into terrain that I don’t have time to build.  Plus, it was my birthday.  You’re going to start seeing a lot...

City of the Dead

Graveyards can be tricky terrain pieces to build.  They have a lot of fiddly bits that become very delicate and damage prone.  For my fantasy terrain box, that’s one hassle I’d like to avoid, so I just bought a resin graveyard from Monday Knight Productions.  This piece measures four...

Mined Out – Bloodstone Temple

Lead Mountain is tapped out.  There’s no more gold in them thar hills.  How does that happen?  I mean, sure there are a few mounted Musketeers and an odd bit or bob that could use some paint, but I’m raring to add to the 15mm fantasy, and that means...

The Compleat Castle Meatgrinder

Who are we kidding? A project like this is never complete, it just goes into hibernation. As we round out the year of fantasy skirmish here at War In A Box, let’s take a look at where the project stands. At the current time we’ve got over 50 characters in...

Three Rooms

The map of Castle Meatgrinder has been done for months, but there are enough empty rooms in its halls to allow for a few more rooms with interactive elements.  The crypts needed a little bit of furniture, and 15mm.co.uk makes these nice little crypts:    They also sell...

Massive Firepots

Another cheap version of an idea originally promulgated by The Crafty DM today.  Two enormous stone firepots resting on massive wooden frames.  These are, of course, cheap electric tea lights bashed and painted for appropriate dungeon ambiance.  The LED lights in these things aren’t very bright, but they flicker...
