Model terrain workshop set with local artist

Valley artist and game mapmaker Todd Gamble joins Jonathan Nelson to teach a free terrain-building workshop, 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 9, at Cascade Comics and Games, 226 E. North Bend Way in North Bend.

The workshop is aimed at anyone interested in model railroad, wargames, or role-playing games. After the initial workshop, participants can sign up for future workshops which will have a cost but feature detailed personal instruction on building professional grade model scenery and terrain.

His work can also be found in Dungeons and Dragons, Pokemon, G.I.Joe and Star Wars products.
