MIniature wargaming terrain creator that has a lot of useful tips on crafting terrain for gaming. He has great tutorials about crafting with styrofoam and various other materials and a ton of tips on converting Dollar store/thrift store/yard sale finds and everyday objects into gaming gold.
A fantastic blog that has given me so many ideas and taught me to scan the toy isles for cheap miniatures. Gives a lot of great ideas about alternative miniatures you can use for gaming. He includes a scale showing the size of all the minis he talks about which I find extremely useful for determing if I should buy a mini or not for the D&D scale my group uses.
Fantastic Idea generator for monster encounters. The blog starts with the letter A in the Pathfinder Bestiary and is heading all the way through the alphabet posting a monster a day. It started back in 2011 and is now up to the letter W. It usually presents a monster, gives a brief description of the monster and 3 encounter ideas for the monster. While it uses the Pathfinder Bestiary its compatible with all editions of the game.
No problem BrainBot would be nice to have a sticky threat but now sure how the system at proboards is set up.
I've got another one that might be of use for folks into sci fi. Not totally game related but it has a mix of gaming, writing, and general sci fi themes that might come in hand when you're looking for somethign new in your campaign.
There is an RPG section, section on world and alien profiles.
EDIT: also would have to say look up "Digging For The Truth" on youtube or via Netflix. I know it's an archaeology show but can be a good source of info for background settings and some flare to make your setting pop a bit.
Use an external image host, such as photobucket, and link the images via the image URL, using the Image Link icon, it should show up right away on the post, or you can preview before posting, to double check it worked correctly.
erho: Too many minis, not enough time... Am I right?

sgtslag: If we could just do away with this whole "work" thing, and supporting ourselves, financially, and otherwise... Life always seems to get in the way of gaming. AHHH!!!...

sgtslag: Still unpacking after moving in October... Too much stuff, crafting materials are mostly still in boxes. Weekends are busy with life, so little progress made. Getting the urge to push through, though, soon. I have several projects waiting...

sgtslag: Started working on making hills, which match my Tee-Time carpet I use for my "grass mat," on my gaming table, for big battles. Got two long chunks of open-cell foam, from a friend. Used my Proxxon Hot Wire Cutter to make terrain hills out of them.

sgtslag: Came up with around 80 hills. Covering them with the same carpet, from scraps. They will match the tabletop, perfectly. Contact Cement, is my friend. Will post on it, when I get the pictures uploaded. Some prototypes done, as proof-of-concept...
