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.

Gamble has worked with many of the leading D20 game companies, creating fantasy genre cartography, diagrams and spot illustrations for role-playing games, novels and major game related magazines. His credits appear on hundreds of Wizards of the Coast and Hasbro products including game board art for the Avalon Hill brand, Axis and Allies, D-Day, Guadalcanal and Diplomacy strategy games as well as Sword & Skull Pirate game. His work can also be found in Dungeons and Dragons, Pokemon, G.I.Joe and Star Wars products.

“Todd is a fun, easy-going, creative guy who loves to drink coffee and get lost in a creative realm,” said Nelson.
