Spooky Trees and Fog Machine

Ironhands has some evil trees he built from kids toys, and a page explaining how he used an electric fog machine to add some great effects to his tabletop games.

Now how about some fog through the spooky trees.

Disney’s Haunted Mansion Paper Model

This free paper model of Disney’s Haunted Mansion is a tour-de-force. Even if you don’t want to download it, you need to take a look.

Midnight Banshee’s Downloadable Boardgame

Ok. So its not really miniatures related, but it’s still really neat. Ravensblight has a downloadable game called Midnight’s Banshee which is a cross between a board game and a foldable paper model. The goal of the game is to collect five skulls from the tombs in the graveyard. But be careful, for you never know which one contains a vampire. There’s a clever spinner under the game board which randomizes the locations of the vampires.

Night of the Living Dead

For zombie game inspiration, you can download and watch George Romero’s 1968 classic horror film, Night of the Living Dead for free.

Methuselah Vampire Hunting Game

Warpspawn games has a vampire hunting game called Methuselah designed to be played on a chessboard with a custom set of cards. One side plays Dracula and his minions, the other the vampire hunter and his assistants.

I think that some of the ideas could easily be lifted for use in more traditional miniatures games.
