David recently tweeted me his quality prints of the Blacksmith and Trusty Tavern, and I just had to share them here. Each map is printed at the store and glued to cardboard before being touched up with a black marker around the edges and reinforced with clear tape. If you like David’s style, he keeps a […]
In many ways the Trusty Tavern is the father of the modular buildings set, and it deserved to be reworked to match the other building’s color scheme. It also lacked a roof… But now it can be properly assembled alongside the other buildings!
Hi all! I’m finally beginning the Maps In Action gallery, a place where 2-Minute map users can show off their screenshots and photos and I can gain insight into how you are all using them. If YOU have any images of our maps in use, please send them my way! Justin from Guard Frequency has […]
One last modular building, at least for now!
Rope! Freshly made hemp rope! Get your rope right here!
The Alchemist is a new basement / shop / living area combo to add to your ever-growing collection of modular buildings.
Paired with the cemetery, you can run an interesting Halloween-themed session with this map. After all, what cemetery is without its restless undead at this time of year?
Today I tried out something a little different. Not only by drawing a tree which, as anyone who has dabbled in art can tell you, is a trial by itself, I shifted the perspective quite drastically.
I have quite a backlog of videos I want to produce, and this is the first. The over-the-shoulder-cam of The Blacksmith.
In all my recent adventures on reddit, I have found myself needing a concise printing guide not only to explain how it’s done, but to show off the customization options.

“Runs on a custom web application with two browser windows. One view for DM to toggle fog of war and one for the screen. Screen not protected yet but need to add a layer of something for it.”

It is compatible with the Humble Home, Blacksmith and all future buildings from the series.
Today’s battle map is The Blacksmith, a modular two story building with an exterior workspace, interior shop, living area and roofing. There’s even space for a basement! Here is a quick demonstration on Roll20, showing the different layers in action: This is the first set piece in my new series, which will be a […]
The new episode of The Walking Dead inspired this one. Feel free to fill it with anything you want though, not just zombies!

You can slap a set piece building in the parking lot and have it functioning perfectly. Likewise, […]
Today I finish up the three-part Dragon’s Lair battle map set. Watch the shoulder-cam of the drawing, and the screencap of the painting (minus some corrupted footage, sadly). Enjoy!
[page_section image=’http://2minutetabletop.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/10/Preview.jpg’ textstyle=’light’ position=’top’ padding_bottom=’on’ fullheight=’on’] [/page_section] For the first time on 2-Minute Table Top, a multi-part battle map. The Dragon’s Lair comes in three pieces, the bridge, entrance and burrow, and altogether spans 12 pages / 552 squares / 2760 ft2.
Dragon’s just can’t resist dwarvish architecture, and this bridge is no exception. The red dragon has really made it its own, carving in its signature crumbling gouges and jagged claw marks.
Today I began the first map in my Dragon’s Lair project, the Dragon’s Lair Bridge battle map. The bridge spans a great lava pool and leads to the red dragon’s volcanic lair. All in all, the lair will span three maps that fit together to draw a volcanic island containing the once-dwarven lair of a […]
Marshes come in so many color schemes that I just couldn’t decide… So I defaulted to the autumnal palette, since that is the current season in the campaign I run. We’ll see if I even get to use it!
Today’s FREE map is the Brackish Marsh. This map went through a great many color changes, and I may yet upload an alternate, greener version. That said, I like the autumn feel of this one, which is convenient in that the campaign I run is currently in autumn!
This one shows the 2.5 hour painting of the Hallowed Hall battle map, condensed into a short and sweet 5-ish minutes. Later this week, I want to print (in color this time!) and assemble this map on video, as I did the Humble Home. It was a lot of fun and very well received last time, […]
A few weeks ago, Reynold the paladin and his comrades Walter and Victor found themselves in a sprawling grimdark cityscape with no friends and many enemies. Luckily, Reynold is a paladin of the Silver Lady, and knew of a small temple in the area built long ago, even before the land was covered in cobble and haze. […]
I’ve long wanted to show off some of my 2.5-D stuff, and today I set the time aside that I needed to record the construction process.
I wanted to make a video demonstrating the new PDF map customization system, which quickly turned into a kind of start-to-finish guide. Basically, I show you how to download a map, customize and print it (or upload it to Roll20).
Checkpoint is perhaps my new favorite battle map. I knew I wanted to make a multi-layered structure, but it was too simple to make a cut out set piece, so how should I portray elevation? I decided to try long shadows cast by a rising/setting sun, and I am overjoyed with the results. As well […]
In this video I ramble over a speed drawing of the Humble Home set piece. I’m just getting the hang of things before I do a start-to-finish video, assembly guide and other fun stuff.
