The Miniature Maze of Maddness

 

Here is a great tutorial that was originally posted to the Kraftmark Newsletter. My thanks go out to them for allowing me to post this tutorial to my website. This is the company that makes ProCreate which is the great 2 part epoxy that I use to sculpt miniatures and other things. If you have seen my tutorials you know I use a lot of ProCreate.

 

They have a line of products that are just superb for miniature making. And they include the Procreate but they also have a product called Terrain Putty which is a long worklife and light-weight putty that doesn't sag and is great for making terrain or repairing terrain. This tutorial shows you how to use several of their products to make a great looking maze for wargaming or just for dioramas. These techniques are perfect for all kinds of miniature making stuff.

(If you want to see exactly how ProCreate is used to make a miniature you can check out my series of videos on how to sculpt miniatures) The procreate section of the videos starts here.

  • You can order the Kraftmark products directly from their website here

Procreate and craft sticks

We begin by gathering some craft sticks and ProCreate.

The basic frame

Next, we assemble the craft sticks into a basic frame with the help of the ProCreate putty.

coat with Fab epoxy

A good amount of Kraftmark's FabEpoxy is coated onto the frame.

Reindeer Moss looks great

Reindeer moss (obtainable from hobby stores) is then applied to the frame to create a hedge section.

Ancient and Medieval Wargaming

Ancient & Medieval Wargaming

Re-fight some of the bloodiest battles of the ancient and medieval worlds! Seasoned wargamer and author Neil Thomas brings historical perspective to the hobby with a description and interpretation of significant military developments from 3,000BC to AD1500. Wargaming is the simulation of accurate historical battles using miniature figures to fight over three dimensional terrain, their movement and combat being regulated by clearly defined rules. Neil Thomas' new book provides specific coverage of ancient and medieval wargaming, thanks to its division into biblical, classical, Dark Age and medieval sections. Each section has its own set of rules and much expanded army lists. The wargamer gains additional perspective from data panels containing facts about weaponry, personalities and chroniclers, and quotations from original document sources. Useful suggestions for further reading are also included, while battle reports in each section provide tactical insights for both novice and veteran wargamers.
