Thanks! I'm hoping it can help people looking to make stands for relatively cheap. As others have posted, a more opaque black may blend better, but this still works well for my needs. Plus I like to see what's below the stand anyways.

Also, I'll possibly post a quick tutorial on the houses I made up the other night for my city combat. They're pretty much made out of foam core and hot glue. :P I think it must come out to maybe $0.75 a house. The flat roofs are nice, as you can describe them as a steepled roof, but it gives you a place to set a mini. The multi-level buildings can be split and pulled apart.

I got the foam core at amazon, and I use 3-2-1 blocks for aligning the walls when gluing. The only thing I'm not sure about is how long they will hold up. My main concern is moisture and warping, as I do not have a bottom piece on the buildings (only a roof).

Should be an interesting session tomorrow. Largest battle yet! The large group on the main road are civilians, the invaders are coming down the streets. The party has defend the civilians as they retreat to the castle (not pictured) on the right of the map. I still have to set a few more tokens on the map (including the PC's and some of their allies), but it should be quite a bit of fun assuming I can keep combat flowing well (Oh, and that minitaur is actually a giant ape... polymorph is a powerful spell)!

I don't have any "methods," since I've never tried to sculpt individual feathers (just a feature "texture" on wings). But I'd suggest using green stuff or a similar two-part epoxy putty, if you weren't already. It holds detail amazingly well and dries almost as hard as plastic, while being much less brittle than modeling clay. Something that protrudes off the edge of a model (like, I'm guessing, your feathers) could still get snapped off, but during normal play, or even if you drop the model from a reasonable height like a game table, it should be totally fine. I'm not a sculptor by any means, but that's the best material I know to recommend.

But as for a "way to sculpt or apply feathers" once you have the green stuff, I'm not sure, and it would depend on how big you want the feathers to be. I can attach some pictures of a project I'm working on to give you ideas, if you want, but I haven't yet added any free-standing feathers. They're molded directly onto the wings of the model, so I don't have to worry about them breaking off.

for large creatures!

The hole punches are pretty cheap on amazon ($11 for 1", and $12.50 for 2"), so even if you only deal with a few dozen large creatures over your DM life, it could still save you a decent chunk of time. But I'd totally understand if it's not a regular thing for you/your campaign(s).

For me, because I play on a whiteboard on the wall instead of on a mat on the tabletop, I instead use 2" per 5ft so that my players can more easily see everything.

I also print a lot of doubles for each token in different colours. This means that each mini has a unique colour (or different hair, weapons, etc). Which gives me flexibility to represent different setups for a fight, and it helps me keep track of each creature's hp without having numbers on every single mini.

To store and organise all of them, I bought some 3-ring binders, and clear photo sleeves. I also "borrowed" a sheet of sticky labels from work.
Originally I just used one envelope per monster type, and rubber-banded them together. But I found that got really annoying to deal with once I got to like 15 different monsters - an alphabetised folder is much faster and easier to flip through.

That’s a good idea too.

The original version of these was beer bottle caps with a 1” furniture-to-floor felt stickers stuck inside then hammered flat.

Things got out of hand though, and I’d find myself trawling all the exotic (and expensive) beers for cool bottle tops.

I simply download pictures of whatever mobs I want to make and minimize them to an appropriate size and print out a sheet of them. Here's an example of a group of kenkus that I made a while back.

Then I use self-stick furniture pads & a round paper punch to make custom tokens. I've found that with my particular punch it's better to use a thicker paper, like a cardstock or construction paper.

Then for storage I simply put them into a fishing tackle box. I've made several hundred that way.

I suggest either buying gaming paper or a Chessex mat (which you can use wet-erase markers on) like this one.

If you can't afford those I'll make some A3 sized grids for you later, just remind me :)

Plastic embroidery canvas makes great for material for mesh windows.

If you want stone, take a look at your local hardware store for tile options. A lot of these are thin, as you say you don't want, but talk to whomever is there about using slate on walls (and floors if you want).

For extra tavern flair, I recommend using animal skins as rugs (or fake animal skins if you prefer; you can even get crazy colors and make up in-game animals that they're from). Thin animal (or fake animal) skins can also work as chair-throws, table cloths, and bar-coverings.

Google around for "medieval wall sconce" for ideas or for DIY. Check out your local Ren Faire or blacksmith for other tips. They'll be a good source for you for a olde timey hinges and a sword rack, too.

There are glue sticks that set more clear. Also use a lot less. Then hit it with a heat gun to get it to smooth out. Otherwise you can buy some clear casting resin.

Quick Amazon search for "blank pill organizer" brings up this. Might be an option if you can't get the print off.

If the letters aren't terribly raised, you might be able to paint over them too.

u/Crimson_Rhallic · 2 pointsr/DnDIY

Interesting concept. If you use a chalk line, you can drop the grid lines even faster.

I got them from Michael's I think they were on sale, I think like 15 trees for $20 US then washed all of the snow off and flocked them.
Here's the Amazon link.

I have no clue where to find them in the UK though unfortunately

bitd, TSR put out a few sets of printed cardstock buildings and dungeon walls. they're pricy these days and IMO not amazing.

I find papercraft a bit more work for a bit worse result than working with precut craft wood.
