Making Your Own Boardgame Pieces

Ive spent the best part of two months searching for ways in which to craft playing pieces. Cheaply!

I stumbled into my local WH Smiths and picked up a copy of Hobby's Annual 2004. I cant recomend it enough. Although aimed at the UK guys some of the companys listed do European deliveries.

Its basicaly a Hobby/DIY mag. It covers a variety of materials from resin casting and stone powder to Alumilite and liquid metals. Also all the tools, inks and dyes etc.

Check it out.

I havent ordered anything yet. Im still using Polyfiller in moulds and a dremel to smooth the pieces out!

I forgot to mention youll need the magazine so you can see the products that they sell. Its £2.99. You can order one from the site.

Hi Andy, from a fellow UK'er.

Have you seen the "20 classic games" box in Woolworths? It's basically got all the counters/pawns/dice/boards/etc you will need for basic components (for about £10/$17). They also sell 'fluffier' craft kits in a clear plastic tub for £4/$7 which contains felts/fabrics/pom-poms/ribbonse/etc.

You guys still have Woolworths? Man, they went out of business (WoolCo also) here in the US about 20 years ago.
