Minicannuck here. It has been a hectic couple of weeks up here in Canada. With the average temperature being around -20, I was not able to make use of the studio I created in my garage. The poor space heaters just couldn’t keep up. I think I will have to invest in a wood burning stove if we continue to get weather like this. In the mean time, I had to find space in the house where I could.
The good news is that I got the first stone bridge done! Continue reading The stone bridge is FINALLY done!!!!

The Farmstead map is finished. It took a while but we’re pleased with the result and I learned some new tricks along the way, which is always fun (more on that later). Since I teased the layout of the map in part 1, I thought it might be fun to go through the finished map bit by bit and write about each part like a DVD commentary track. So let’s dive right in at the bottom layer of the map: Continue reading Printed Maps: The Farmstead Part 2 – Layer by Layer
Farms are a mainstay in tabletop gaming. They add a variety of terrain for a countryside battle and offer a remote location for more intimate skirmish settings. Even today, you can still drive through parts of the country and see farms that look similar to how they must have been over a hundred yeas ago. Adding a tractor brings it to the 20th century and the present. Adding rustic wagons can make the landscape appear hundreds of years old. Farms definitely give us tabletop gamers some versatile scenery for our collections. Continue reading Tutorial: Pig Pen/Wooden Animal Closure

Ok. We know the site needs work. When 6squaredstudios.ca went live, our primary goal was to make a functional online store to which we could point people who wanted our products. We achieved that goal but now we feel that the time has come to update the site and really put it to work. So we’re going to give the site a makeover. Over the course of 2015 we’re going to update the site with a clean, crisp colour scheme, a mobile-friendly layout and more. We recognize that our site looks a bit outdated so we’re taking steps to fix it up! Continue reading Coming Soon – Web Site Makeover

What can we do to make tabletop war games easier to set up and prettier to look at? That’s one of the questions we asked ourselves when we launched 6 Squared Studios about a year ago. Since then we’ve launched our line of 6×6 terrain tiles and accessories but we’d still like to do more. Continue reading Printed Maps: The Farmstead – Part 1
Happy New Year, eh?
2014 was an exciting year for us here at 6 Squared Studios. We started our business, traveled to a lot of conventions and met new friends. We attempted our first KickStarter… which unfortunately failed. However, through the generous input from people who pledged and/or bought our products over the year, we now have a better idea of how to focus our future efforts.
