Beginner tutorial on how to paint Flagstones

    You may have seen my Dad's excellent work painting the plain stone surface of an Adventurer's Pack to look like coloured marble. In today's video we can see him painting the Flagstone tiles and he has written a little bit more about his process, and how he approaches painting as someone who has never painted terrain before (or at least, before I asked him to!).  Over to you dad!     Although this blog related to painting flag stones, it is really about painting old paths.

We're in the news?!

Oh man you guys! The kickstarter hasn't even gone live yet and already crazy things are happening!  So ... my little DnD project (as it was six months ago) was in the Sunday paper this morning!

I could sit down in a coffee shop and see a picture of my face.  It's incredibly exciting and humbling to have people get as interested in the project as they have been and it only makes me more eager to get to the point of releasing the terrain into the...

Game pieces - designed. Manufacturing - underway. Beta testing - completed. It looks like it's time for this show to hit the road! :D Hey guys!

What designs do you...
