In the world of tabletop miniature games, there’s a term, “gaming in the gaps.” This is when, as a player and game modeler, you flesh out some aspect of the game that’s only hinted at in the rules and the fiction surrounding the game.
Perhaps it’s the maker in me that has always attracted me to gaming in the gaps. One of the things that first attracted me to the Eldar (now called the Aeldari) in Warhammer 40,000 is that their spacefaring homeworlds (called Craftworlds) are barely every described or pictured. Basically the Eldar are Tolkien elves in space and I have always been intrigued by what Craftworlds might look like.
As a consequence of so little info or understanding about what Eldar architecture actually looks like, besides a few pieces of scatter pieces, seeing Eldar terrain on the gaming table is rare.
So, I was particularly excited to see this build on Eric’s Hobby Workshop where he makes a really nice piece of Craftworld terrain based on a few early reference illustrations.
