Hi guys,

Still very new to SDE, but the family and I are hooked!

After playing a few games I thought I'd try my hand at some 3D tiles. This is what I have so far:



It's pretty much a jumbo version of the fantastic forest board at Scenery Plant:
http://www.scenery-planet.com/3_galeria/projects/8_bit_adven....

Each square is 1.5" and I moved the top layer of the hill over one to make for a sneaky, one square wide, path around the back of the hill. The board sections are made out of cheap insulation foam glued to an MDF base. Then covered with an improvised recipe of sawdust, sand, and hydrostone for texturing. The transitions between levels was made by applying drywall filler on top of twisted pieces of newspaper soaked in elmers.

Some of the great things that came out of this project, besides having a giant modular board to play on:

The wife got involved making "our" board.
I played around with homemade flocking and texturing.
My eldest daughter likes to use the boards between games as a giant play area for her toys

Cheers,

Gubbinz

These are really great Damien. I started making some 3D boards myself (copying the ones from the base game) and really need to start that project up again. If I could offer one tiny criticism it's that I'd like to see some more variety with some bushes/trees but depending how you store them I can see how this may be an issue. Regardless, have some geek gold for your awesomeness.

I thought about bushes and rocks, but I didn't want to add anything that might interfere with any future terrain pieces. I'll probably just make all the little rocks, bushes, trees, etc as removable pieces.

That is also a good idea that I may...ummm....'appropriate'! Those tiles could easily be forest, graveyard or maybe even something else by having removable terrain features. You good sir, are a genius!

I agree. To be honest, until it gets a plethora of trees on it, it doesn't look any more like a forest than it would a village, or any other setting that would have a dirt/grass landscape. There's plenty you could do with that.

Oh there will be trees Chad (knowing wink).

I'm putting together a custom expansion set of minis to go with the board. So far:

Boss - 80% done
Mini Boss - 20% done (if that)
Spawner - 100% done
Minion 1 - 100% done
Minion 2 - 100% done
Minion 3 - I have a couple of options but nothing I'm really happy with
Hero 1 - 95% done
Hero 2 - 95% done
Hero/companion - 100% done

I was really hoping to have the set done by now, but life had other plans.
