Making Simple, Effective Game Terrain Without Painting
In this episode of The Tabletop Engineer, Jim shows how he made some really cool-looking sci-fi terrain pieces for the upcoming Stargrave (the sci-fi sibling of the amazing Frostgrave) tabletop miniatures game.
He used electrical outlet boxes for the buildings and vinyl stickers designed in Inkscape to decorate the structures with solar panels, doors, windows, etc.
The buildings only ended up costing a couples of bucks each including getting vinyl stickers printed. This is a great way to create effective and cool-looking sci-fi buildings when you can’t or don’t want to paint terrain.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound.
