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.

Another fantastic addition to my repertoire of laser cut doodads and trinkets, a 15mm scale modular brick house. It will be the start of the buildings I am designing for playing in Team Yankee/Flames of War, 15mm scale wargames. But since I don’t have Flames of War, it will just be for our Team Yankee Games.

As usual, cut in MDF, I meticulously designed the brick and roofing patterns to relatively fit in the size of the pieces. I still have some work to do as the patterns sometimes don’t translate well into the laser cutter for whatever reason and it skips some lines.

The patterns are scored, the walls and windows cut out. I want to play with the power of the scoring to make the depth shallower. I want to be able to pick out the grout better when I end up painting this.

Looking forward to more iterations of this design. The next thing I am making is a petrol station and a Brick wall.

I made a thin deck box design. These are two deck boxes with different engravings for the deck I have in each. They hold about 40 sleeved cards, with some room on the sides for a couple tokens. Takes about 30-45 minutes to cut the MDF and engrave the logo and text. I added a couple pairs of magnets to help seal the lid.

I have not posted my first paint rack, so I will do that in time. This second one has a ball bearing mechanism as I needed something strong enough to hold up this many paints and still turn smoothly.

This iteration holds up to 70 paints. I have put all of my GW and P3 paints into my own 14mL drop bottles or in 17mL Vallejo bottles. Either fit well. The idea of these are to make a paint rack that takes less of a spacial footprint than having the paint sitting there or on a standard stand that holds paint. For most instances, I think it does.

It does not look as impressive as having all your paint in rows on stands or on a wall, but it’s an ideal space saver with someone like me who has limited desk space and can’t put up organizers on walls.
