What you need:

  • a picture frame with a 2cm border (about 1 inch), size 19cm x 23,5 cm or smaller [5 Euro)

I primed the mdf on both sides black.

Tutorial: Selfmade tokens for Tabletops or Boardgames


Here i show how you can make cheap but good looking and durable tokens for your faction easily. And you can also update your set everytime as new model for your faction comes out. You just need some Photshop skills or ask me πŸ˜‰ 

What do we need?

  • Circle cutter from ebay or amazon, about 5€ (Yes this tool again πŸ™‚
  • Printed One inch tokens or larger (get them free in the privateerpress forum here)
  • Epoxy 1 inch Stickers from ebay or amazon, about 10€ for 100 pcs


Just cut the printed tokens with the cutter and use the stickers to glue them together. Finished! You might have some scale issues with your printer but thats the only problem here. So you can make easy tokens for each game, like Infinity for example(left tokens on the picture).

Have fun, MindmaZing

Tutorial: how to make a Cryxian Spelldisc

I have found a video on Youtube from General Splatton and tried it with some changes, you can find the video here.

Step 1: What you need


  • The plastic is from a empty water bottle
  • A one inch circle cutter (got mine form ebay)
  • a permanent marker
  • a thin marker
  • waywatcher green glaze from GW
  • Ceramite or White Scar from GW
  • Green Fluo from Vallejo
  • Matt Varnish from Vallejo

Step 2:

Just empty a bottle of water and cut some plastic. Then you simply use the circle cutter and you have a niceΒ  piece of round plastic πŸ™‚

Step 3:


Take of the plug from the permanent marker and draw the inner circle with the thin one,like shown on the picture.

Step 4:


Paint a coat of matt varnish on the front and the backside, but just on the outer ring and let it dry. The glaze will have a much better hold on it.

Step 5:


Paint three coats of Waywatcher Green Glaze on the front of the outer ring and one on the backside of your spelldisc. After that you can wipe off the green marker with a tissue.

Step 6:


Paint Runes from your faction with a white colour. i used some runes from the faction font. You can find it here

After the White runes are dry i have painted over them with some green fluo.

Step 7:

Cut a hole with a knife, like i did on the first picture, so that you can fit the spelldisc onto the hand of your caster, and you should be done!

I hope you find it useful πŸ™‚ greets MiNDmaZing

My first tutorial: Displayboard and Movement Tray

I started to hate those foams, the figs dont fit perfect and from time to something breaks off and you have to glue it again. And it tooks me a lot of time to put them back into the display cabinet or into my suitcase. I have seen those round cutted wooden trays, which brought me to an idea. I think they arent perfect enough and quite expensive when it comes to shipping costs to austria. So i will start to build my own. I will put everything into a Sammla Box from Ikea.

I have one for my Terrain and Scenery, so it was easy to measure how big one inlay could be. Luckely its 2x Din A4. (42cm x 29,4cm

What you need for the first step:

  1. Ikea Sammla Box 
  2. Pencil
  3. Roundcutter (see picture) 5 Euro from Amazon
  4. Modelbases
  5. Drilling Machine
  6. Wood Glue
  7. Irontape
  8. Magnets (ebay)
  9. Rasp
  10. Sandpaper
  11. Mdf Board (Medium Density Fibreboard) 

For the MDF Board i had luck my hardware store has exactly the right sice 42×29,4 cm and 2cm thick. 

I used the Bases to mark circles that i have cut out. For 30mm i used the 32mm roundcutter where i had nothing to rasp. For 40mm i used the 40mm roundcutter which i had to buy extra cause it wasnt in my set. The first time i took the 38mm one but i had to rasp for ages until the base fits into the hole. For the 50mm one i used, you guessed it πŸ˜‰ the 50mm one. The grad circle on the picture is for colossal bases or the warcaster and one of his attachement. For example gaspy 3 and vociferon or my goreshade 3 on a large base. I have a solution for colossal bases in my mind, because a 120 mm roundcutter is a way too expensive.

 Second step (Rasping and gluing)

After i have rasped everything, i have filled the hole board with my army. To make sure evry hole is the right size. Then i started to glue the mdf boards together and let it dry for about 24 hours. Make sure you put something heavy on it so that it will stay under pressure.

Third Step (Irontape and Magnets)

I have cutted the Irontape from amazon and glued it into the holes. Luckely it is adhesive.

Enough for now. Next step i will airbrush the whole board with steel legion drab and zandri dust, both colours are from games workshop.
