OMG, It’s done!
This was a lot of work, but worth every second! :D

I present to you: The Dungeon Master’s Mimic!
The idea behind this project was to make one single container that a GM, or well prepared player can store all their RPG needs in and easily carry them from game to game.
And what other way to make a chest more roleplaying game related than making it a mimic? :3

It’s made from solid pine that I stained with a nice walnut stain and finished with briwax.
All the hardware is steel and brass. It has a soft, 100% wool felt lining to protect the books it’s carrying
The main compartment comfortably holds around 5-6 large rule books and a smaller secondary compartment holds an insert that can safely store all your dice, miniatures, tokens and pencils!
It measures 14 inches across, 9 inches deep and 10 inches tall. The main internal compartment measures 12 x 6 x 10 inches.
The teeth are solid wood, too and have been dulled for safety. (I’d still not joke around and slam it shut on your friend’s hand, though…)

This project was loads of fun, even though throughout the built I came across some rather annoying stumbling blocks. Making it would have been a lot easier if I had a table saw :P
Still, I’m so happy that it’s finally done and am very proud of how it turned out.


I won’t sell this as usual through my Etsy store. It is a unique item that I put a lot of my heart and soul into and I don’t feel that Etsy’s “first come, first serve” policy on purchases would do it justice.
Instead I have listed it on Ebay in a one week auction. I thought that way instead of whoever happens to see it the quickest, it will go to whoever wants it the most ^__^

Here’s the listing:

Love you all <3

Made some good old bappers!

These are “bladed knucks” props for a Dystopia Rising player.
In-game they are supposed to be basically brass (or steel) knuckles, but with blades attached for maximum damage.

The white popsicles don’t exist in the game’s reality and are the actual striking surface, because punching a dude in the noggin is a bit too dangerous, even with foam covers.

The customer’s character is a bodyguard/bouncer in a casino so I made his knucks casino themed. Dice, slots and cards! Bonus points to whoever figures out the pun I made with the card hand :P

The Lich

“You call me unclean,” the lich’s voice rasped hollowly in it’s skull, mingling with the piano music. It played beautifully.

“And yet I sit before you, a craft of my own handiwork, using herbs, crystals, and magic plucked from the earth to the destruction and disadvantage of nothing.

“And you stand in armor of bent steel, brass, leather,” the lich did not need to look up to see its adversary. One of the advantages of undeath is, many times, senses disconnected from a body.

“How much pollution went from forge to sky? From tannery to armor maker? You call me unclean and you stand caked in the filth of industry.”

The lich stopped finished it’s song, turned around, and slowly stood.

“Matter, color and sound in motion are the phenomena whose simultaneous development makes up the new art.”

Lucio Fontana was born on this day in 1899. He is the father of the Italian postwar movement Spazialismo, which aimed to bring art and science together. Portrait of Antonin Artaud is on view in our 4th floor Collection Galleries. It is an “illustration” for a book by Otto Hahn, for which Fontana created punctured sheets of steel, brass, and plexiglass and kept them in a sculptural container.

Mle 1854 Imperial Guard Cuirassier’s Cuirass and Helmet

Helmet manufactured c.early 1870′s by Delachaussée - serial number 1.
Cuirass made by the Manufacture Impériale de Klingenthal c.1856, size 2 width 1 - serial number 89.
Steel with brass fittings, stamped imperial crest on the helmet, with horsehair on the comb.

Although mostly obsolete by the time of the Franco-Prussian war, these suits of armor were still impervious to any melee weapons, and pistol shots up to point-blank range.

I drew this one for some anons who ask me about Bispups!

  • They are three and usually more calm that other kind of gemling, but still same as curious. Is easy to forgot that they are there and that got them sometimes in trouble.
  • Looks like their temper is on check by themselves cause if one of them is upset, the others are quickly to help to make her feel better.
  • Love to be tinkering with Peridot and Pearl stuff because big mama Bismuth don’t let them stay inside the forge since the day one of them go lost in a stream of lava. Garnet found her in a underground cave a week later.
  • Very strong teeth but gently bite. Never had an accident involving one of them hurting somebody.
  • All of them have her gems hidden by their hair, so they got some metal rings for they dreadlocks [steel, copper and brass], so they can be recognized easily and ended to be called by those names.
  • Gem positioning: Back between shoulder blades, nape and neck.
  • Bismuth was the carrier, but I´m not so sure about the sire. Maybe Pearl?
  • THEY HAVE TINY BOOTS!
  • Their favorite game is building things. Sand castles in the beach especially.

English air musket c.1800′s

.30 caliber, 120mm diameter brass gas tank, steel lock with brass smootbore barrel and triggerguard.
Only the trouble of making cheap and resilient air-tight pressurized air containers stopped air guns to become a common battlefield weapon. That would have been so awesome :v

This was a very productive month, although not intentionally, but we’ve created many cool new items and this gauntlet is another one. Made for an a-w-e-s-o-m-e customer of ours from the US. The best designs always come when you work WITH the client. This was an outstanding experience. Thank you Mike!
Sorry for being a bit verbose, but i really want to explain in detail -
this gauntlet has wet formed knuckles and cuff. The arm part is molded as well to hold removable mild steel protective inlays. The dagger was fully hand crafted from scratch using mild steel with a brass handle and fits into a sheath. All parts are secured together using only authentic brass and copper rivets. Check out all the photos for more details.
Another variation coming soon, photos are almost ready.

MULTIPLE FORMS ON A PODIUM 

From Left to Right:

Rem Koolhaas, Sketch for O.M. Ungers, Competition for Tiergarten Quarter, Berlin, Germany, 1973-1974 / Georges Vantongerloo, Construction, 1931 

Laszlo Moholy-Nagy, Sculpture in Steel, Copper, Brass, and Nickel, 1923 / Arquitectonica, The Helmsley Center Proposal, Miami, Florida, 1981 

The range clears my head. The world is reduced to a single black post with a red dot, dancing between bars of light. In my mind the red eye grows as large as a sun.

Canvas and leather, steel and brass. The fire spitting from the barrel and chamber. The elements of a world made pure.
