Years ago, I got really into Warhammer 40,000, the tabletop miniature sci-fi wargame. I quickly found myself more into painting and converting the miniatures and building the terrain than in playing the game itself. I even ran a website for modeling and conversion for a few years. I’m starting to feel the itch again and so have been checking out lots of modeling and terrain sites and videos. YouTube didn’t exist when I was in the hobby the first time, so it’s great to see all of the modeling and terrain-building how-tos now. One guy’s site and videos I’m really liking is Steve Delaney’s. He’s this very laid back Canadian who says “Eh?” a lot and sort of mumbles his way through his numerous funky, but informative, how-to videos. He’s really good at buildings and terrain modeling and has tons of great tips and techniques. Definitely worth bookmarking if you’re into tabletop gaming.
