Gameplay was a little chaotic on the 1st game. PLanning on making more defined regions the second time round, ie. Great Forrest and Mountain regions.

But I am happy to say that it works!
Can't wait for the second game, gonna tryout the Frozen Wastes board.

Simple Tips on making terrain:
- make cutouts from cereal cardboard (scissors)
- wood glue for sand, forests and hills base
- cement gravel for mountains ans smaller hills (contact adhesive)
- train modelling gravel for mountain bases
- forrests i used train modelling foliage (contact adhesive)
- splash enamels everywhere! (or acrylics if you prefer)

(Note: the next day after place the pieces on a flat table, bend them backwards so as to reverse the warping)

All in all it took 2 full days - play lots of mind-numbing music and keep the coffee on the tap!

(note i only make pieces for mountains, forests, and hills.
But, that is already 100 pieces, 30 mountains, 30 hills, 40 forests.
I place these tiles as to how i see fit.
For exposed plains, rivers, swamps, roads:
All remain as are, but i can still place new tiles on top of these.

Conversion Table:
(Original=New Tile)
Hills = Rivers
Forests = Plains
Mountains = Swamps

I also use the Frozen Wastes Weather System whether I play on the Original board or the Frozen Wastes. I find it adds so much more emphasis on terrain.)

Haha, thanks. okay i have to admit teh board got a little clustered with teh terrain pieces, i had to balancing acts with eh miniatures. But it's still cool if you get tired of the map, and want to create your own. i'm now using miniatures from my Cave Troll game which i gave a quick gold and silver job, and added color codes to their bases. work a lot better than the Risk miniatures, heheh
(that's now two lesser board games which i have destroyed for the sake of Runebound, but sure as hell worth it.)
