One of the most unique looking buildings on the market this will be sure to capture attention on the gaming table. The Merchant's Guild rivals our other model kits with lots of layered options, giving you many different buildings in one model. In addition, this is the first kit in our line of products that offers a true rounded tower.
The above image looks like it could be in a steam punk-type of setting, which both Dave Graffam and Fat Dragon Games have slightly tapped into. My personal goal is to continue to design unique buildings and building types that has never been done before. I only wish there was a way to speed up the process!
If you're feeling inspired and want to see something specific, feel free to post your ideas. I will see if I can incorporate them in the Mystic Mountain product line. That said, I have a few irons of my own in the fire working through the design process to make the models a little less complicated to build. In addition, I'm considering building out a few battlemaps that would be too big as a 3D model.
Last but not least, a question: Would you find a kit of fantasy based DM accessories such as area templates and various counter markers valuable for your gaming group?
WWG did a couple sets of templates and tokens (http://www.worldworksgames.com/store/index.php?view=catalog&cat_id=4). I've owned them for a while, but have never made any. Guess they don't suit my D&D gameplay style - I can figure out areas of effect without much effort, and having more things to move around the table and add clutter just to denote conditions isn't appealing.
I use paper minis and lego figures when playing. The paper minis tend to get slotted into a foamcore base. I've been imagining some simple status markers that could easily slot into the 1" foamcore squares - maybe instead of one slot down the middle of the base, I'd have three evenly spaced. The mini goes in the middle slot, and modifiers can slip into one of the other two slots, allowing for a couple conditions to be applied...
P.S. I like the idea of battle mats that incorporate the actual footprint of your buildings. It would serve as a nice kitbash tool for those of us who really want buildings with interiors.
cowboyleland: Now I have seen it. It doesn't advance our hobby, but anyone with half a brain who wanted 2nd rate figures could easily figure this out for themselves so I guess he isn't doing any harm.

berneart76: well, this is fun, (not) transferring all my papercrafting sets into the cloud. The stuff I got from DriveTrhruRPG was simple with their library desktop app,but my other stuff, sometimes with multiple duplicate copies is entertaining.

berneart76: Vermin King I usually use a mix of drybrush/watercolor/photocopy and occasionally posterizing at different levels of opacity.

berneart76: Vermin King, that's similar to the enhancing that I do on my texturing. I've found that sometimes I need to scale up or scale down the image (usually by 50 or 25 percent down or 200 or 300 percent up) to make get the enhancements to look "right"

Vermin King: On the zebras, I did multiple enhancements and cartoon filters and used them at 100%, and they still didn't look that different than the photos

Vermin King: When I make a figure or terrain piece based on a photo, I clean it up and align things to look 'right', then I create another layer and do enhancing and cartoonizing on it. I then adjust opacity over the photo image until it looks good. On the zebras,

Vermin King: berneart76, do you mean giving them green or purple manes and tails? and a few piercings? maybe a cig hanging out of their mouths?

Vermin King: cartoonizing a zebra doesn't do much

Vermin King: And due to the snow, I'm off tonight. I am going to miss the cash on the paycheck, but I'm glad they want their employees to be safe

ignatious: Actually I was referring to the two previous posts. I was trying to be subtle in order to sublimate the crassness. Read them again, but in Mel Brooks voice while he is winking, and nudging the person to his right.

Vermin King: Sure. Euphemize us

ignatious: would anyone care for a euphemism?

cowboyleland: We hadn't had snow for a few days. Last night the plow came down my street and did nothing but fill every ones driveways back in. Just for practice, I guess.

Vermin King: In KC we had an ice storm (with thunder sleet) the other night. Left things drivable, but last night the plow came down my street. They took all the rough edges off. Might as well have ran a Zamboni...
