Announcing: Skull Forge Scenics!

*UPDATE: For everyone who has been asking, I've added international shipping options to my Skull Forge Scenics Etsy shop.


This has been a long time in the making. You don't appreciate how much work goes into setting up a business, making products to sell, figuring out packaging, etc. until you sit down and do it. But Skull Forge Scenics LLC is finally a go! My goal is to produce high quality resin scenery kits, battlefield accessories, and all manner of scenic elements for tabletop wargaming and model building. All the kits are designed, sculpted, and cast by me, and sold as Skull Forge Scenics.

In the interim, while I work on getting a proper webstore up and running, I have set up an Etsy store to sell my kits. You can check it out at: www.skullforgescenics.etsy.com

To start out, I've stayed close to my wheelhouse of all things dead and buried (or soon to be un-buried). I teased these a few weeks back, but here are my first products in all their glory:

Roadside Shrines

There are two different shrines, sold as a pair. The spikes on the top of the second shrine are a separate part for easier casting. The shrines have areas of engraved "text," (really just dots and dashes to create a faux lettering that could represent any language, real or fictional) and there are blank areas and banners for ambitious painters who want to freehand names and whatnot.



Here are some detail shots of the naked resin parts themselves. The scenery is sold unpainted and unassembled. One of my goals with my kits is to minimize mold lines, or at least make sure they are in places where they are easy to clean and won't interfere with any detail.









There are 15 different styles and sizes, and there are two of each for a total of 30 in the pack. I incorporated some of the design elements used in the shrines so the two sets will have a unified appearance. I call this my "Land of the Dead" series, and other elements I add in the future will be similarly designed.



And here are the bare resin parts as you would receive them. Astute viewers might notice that each of the tombstone "twins" has a different pattern of cracks and chips, so technically there are 30 unique casts in the set. Some (but not all) of the tombstones have mold lines on the sides where they are easy to scrape off.






Thanks to all of my readers for your support and feedback. I know a lot of you have been fans of my terrain work for many years, and now I hope to give you the opportunity to enjoy it on your own gaming tables. These graveyard sets are just the first in a series of terrain kits that will expand to include a wide range of genres and environments brought to you by Skull Forge Scenics. I hope to have your continued support as I move forward in this bold new endeavor!

'Til next time!

  5. Thanks, everyone! I'm really excited to be moving forward on this new venture!

  6. Would love to buy them, BUT you are not sending to germany =(

    1. I'm looking into international shipping & sales. There are extra things to consider when selling to the EU (like whether VAT tax is an issue or not). I hope to get it sorted out soon.

    2. Hi Zaku, International shipping has just been added to the shop. :)

  7. Congrats Rob! Starting your own business is exhausting but totally worth it!

  8. Just ordered! Looking forward to more in the series. Together with Reaper's upcoming undead scenics, I'll finally realize my dream (nightmare?) of a huge set of undead/graveyard/spooky terrain.

  9. Super psyched!!! Nice going Rob, I look forward to LOTS more Undead items to spiff up my terrain board! Thanks!
