Glowforge adventures return with gaming aids! As of this time, we have played 1 game of Frostgrave and really liked it. We plan on playing more, so I have started to design and cut out persistent spell tokens in MDF and Acrylic.

Loving how the Fog spell turned out. Made sure to make it as per the parameters of the spell. 6″ wide, 3″ tall, and 1″ thick. I went for acrylic for the immersion. May look into tinted acrylics to make it look even better.

The wound dials will always have a special place in my heart. Functional doodads! I made 0-9 and 00-99 dials, stuck together by the power of magnets. My tokens are 25mm radius half-circle, and will fit around the smaller dial. Could be used for stacking spells like Call Storm. I’m making the dial’s magnets all the same polarity, so I am hoping to make the relatively interchangeable when I start making different colours and types.

An assembly only commission for now, and it is complete. Short and sweet for this force.

Genestealer Cults of the Bladed Cog creed. There was some kitbashing for the Brood Brothers, as well as magnetization and scratch building for the tank.

The new Leman Russ kit does not come with heavy stubber or hunter killer missile options (disappointing). So, I had to find some extra bits I had around and found the guns and missiles, but only one mount each. I used styrene strips and rods to make the weapon mounts for a stubber and a missile.

So, I took a look over to my side and saw an unfinished sentinel, sitting lonely and cold in a box. I took it in and built it as I would build any of my models, but with more awesome. Like the veterans before, I built a flight deck base. Since it is a bigger space, I made the base a bit more detailed and dynamic. Not only could I work with elevation a bit more, I added a plug and cord. As if the Sentinel were standing around a recharge station of some sort. I think it’s a funny little detail.

I heavily converted the Sentinel. The legs are backwards to give it the impression it walks more like a humanoid rather than a bird. I added a back cover to the canopy with arms that are attached to a large gun. Parts of the gun are magnetized to give the options for the Scout Sentinel.

I think the best looking combo is the autocannon. It has an ammo hopper that I made from the multilaser cartridge. I found these little cylindrical beads that are about the same size as an autocannon round. They look fantastic as an ammo belt. I look forward to seeing this painted up beautifully.

Square-Circle Base Magnetic Conversion Tutorial August 29, 2011

I got a unit of Bloodletters a while ago and finally decided to work on them. Since they come with both kinds of bases, I wanted to be able to play them in both 40k and Fantasy. I thought that magnetizing the individual feet would be far too much of a hassle, so I customized the bases.

This is a tutorial on how I did them.

Materials: you are going to need a circle base and a square base (obviously). You only need one of each per base. You’ll need styrene as well, or some kind of sturdy material. I used 1mm thick styrene. And you’ll need magnets. I used one 1/32″x3/16″ and one 1/16″x3/16″ magnet per base.

1. Glue one of the magnets onto the bottom of the base. Try to get it as close to the centre as possible. Then glue the other magnet onto the styrene, again getting it as close to the centre as possible.

2. Take out your square base and cut it into 4 pieces.

You should end up like this.

3. Now cut and file those pieces down so they fit onto each corner of your styrene slab.

4. ???
