Gate stands

Recommended Posts

Hey, I just found this thread on BGG and was blown away.

 

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/1059879/hand-crafted-gate-stands/page/2

 

Those are just so amazingly cool.

 

 

Inspired by this I sat down with my kids and made some gatestands of my own brilliant design...

 

Or so I thought.

 

The result was actually more like this in comparison: http://justsomething.co/wp-content/uploads/2014/02/hilarious-pinterest-fails-21.jpg

 

 

Well enough fun for today, here are the pictures:

Thank you kind sir!  :D First playtest tonight!

 

Edit:

 

Some of them are working, some send the gates spinning..

 

The purple tentacle works like a charm!

Congrats! What material did you use for the gate stands? They look so fuzzy and fluffy and cute. :) Also, the doom counter looks like something from an adventure game from my youth. Day of the Tentacle it was called if i recall correctly. Nice memories!

Yeah, the doom counter is inspired by Purple Tentacle - main antagonist in Maniac Mansion 2 "Day of the tentacle". It would have been easy to make it with a green base, and darker green inside the rings. I just made it from memory, and got the colours about right..

The type of clay I used is called FIMO. It is baked at 110 degrees C for about half an hour.

Hehe, I imagine I can do better - first improvement will be to use plastic gloves (or something like that) to eliminate fingerprints :D
