Just in the off chance you dungeon delvers haven't seen Bruce Hirst's dungeon molds, you should check out his site. Even if you have no interest in his products there are many pictures and he has a very active community of builders. Here is the link: www.hirstarts.com I own many of his molds. He has a top notch product and first rate service.

AWESOME SETUP!!!

I'm TOTALLY jealous!!!

I have built some of the Hirst Arts stuff- but I have bought them in pre-cast blocks kits. Most of the stuff I have built are the Egytian Buildings. They look amazing, but like paper terrain, take FOREVER to build!!! I have also built the Sci-Fi Starship? set (first set) and it looks really good. WAY faster to build then the buildings. I really want to build the Egyptian Dungeon for our local convention at the end of the year. It will be an outdoor Egyptian environment with an Egyptian dungeon below...

I love Hirst Arts stuff.
Years ago I built a complete replacement set for Mageknightungeons, and posted a few pics on Voidgamers. Here is a shot of a full table set up.

To give you an example of the sorts of outrageously cool stuff you can do with them.

Steve,

I am sure the Egyptian dungeon would make a great backdrop for your game. Yes it takes much time as Bodhi will attest too. I do want to clarify something on the pictures, they are my pictures, but most of the dungeon pieces are other people's that I met on the Hirst Art's web site. If you do the Egyptian dungeon, make sure you post some pictures.


Bodhi,

Excellent dungeon layout. I hope you use it as often as you can.

Ben

WOW- That's amazing too!

People as crazy as me! I LOVE IT!
:-)

Couple queations Robert;
1. How long did it take you to build that?
2. Is it modular or "fixed"? If modular, what did you mount it on? and how did you do the spacing? Was it based on a "3x3" grid pattern"

Steve

If I had to guess, I would say that it is modular consisting of 5x5 rooms and 3x5 corridors. At least that is what you normally would play with Mage Knight dungeons. For mounting, I'd use Plywood (6mm+) or Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF). You could also use half inch foam to be able to make pits and the like.

If you go to hirstarts.com, you can see a bunch of people's dungeon designs. He also has a fair amount of helpful tips when it comes to making dungeons.
