AWESOME!!

Are those Dwarven Forge terrain pieces?

Did you copy an existing map, or make up your own map?

Really great!

These are Hirst Arts Fantasy Architecture (http://www.hirstarts.com/) and Bit's from Warhammer. Mostly I use my maps, but I can also create the official maps. The lost tepmle example.I produce a map of the dwarven outpost, but there I am still only rocks

But I have yet to produce tiles and walls

VikingHyky, that's really beautiful. I love what you did to create the smoke effect with the fire.

I'll second that for the smoke effect!
Overall, the terrain is amazingly immersive and detailed!

Fire with smoke is made of LED tea candle and wadding. Wadding I dyed black and gray. Sorry for google translator Smile

Really cool, VikingHyky!

Respect for the amount of dedication and effort you've put into it. What a result, too! Is everything done by yourself or is there Dwarwen Forge or similar in it as well? Not that it matters much, great job anyway, just curious! Brilliant details the scrolls, skulls and other stuff on the shelves.

(EDIT) Oh wait, you've already answered that above...

Set-up matters in the game. I sometimes use trees and other dressing fitting the map on the edges just to bring some more feeling to a home game. There have been cool custom maps built on DDM maps (and pictures posted) every now and then. Your modular battlefield is taking dressing to a whole another level, though!

Hi,
The problem with forest terrain I solved this: I gave a magnet to the root of the trees.

As a base I used Hirst Arts Cavern Floor. I used magnets, when I cast for.


Place the trees as I like it, or I will change it. The tree will give away if I need to finish off a move in forest terrain.



Later I finish forests and other accessories for the map Jungle temple. I needed now use forests for 3D outdoor battlefield.

Map for Dwarven outpost have yet to tile building. soon begin to build walls. Smile

Brilliant idea, to have the trees be easily removable. Do you glue a metallic plate under the floor tiles, or do you have a metallic table? Smile

This looks wonderful.

I'm curious about something. I've never used actual real 3D terrain myself. I note that the trees look wonderful, but the trunk uses up most of the space under the leaves, such that even medium humanoid miniatures do not fit on a tile that is equipped with a tree. And then, there are large or larger figures, for which the problem would be even more present.

How do you handle placing miniatures in such spaces?

I used magnets in casting molds cave tiles. At the root of the trees, I stuck a magnet hot glue gun.
When I need to occupy the space of the forest, I take away much of the tree, how much I need space. Cave tiles show the individual squares.

Oh yeah, with the trees being easily removable, this just takes care of that, doesn't it!

Cool stuff there bud!
