Hi!

Crossing my fingers and hoping for a deluxe pnp with final artwork, I decided to create custom components for the game:





Here are the different steps of the project:

1. I took an 8mm cube and made a mold for it:
Dust a chunk of "Sculpey" with baby powder (talc as release agent), press it firmly onto the piece you want to make a mold of, release and bake it.

2. I made 4 Sculpey cubes and sculpted the resources onto them.
I sculpted a player pawn (Green Stuff), made up a goblinoid trader.

3. I made molds of the 5 above pieces.





4. I made clones of the pieces complying with the colors given in the pnp.





5. I cut, sanded and washed the clones.





6. I sealed them with glossy varnish (same brand as the Sculpey, used to fresh up the colors and gives them a consistent appearance).





As soon as my fingertips have recovered, I will make a second set and paint the pieces.

Not yet, sorry. I know we're doing a Rev 7 of the PnP, that will include a few modifications based on player feedback. Nothing too major, but we did tweak some of the character abilities.
