That looks fantastic, we have had so many games in the Terra-Block Tomb of the Serpent over the last year or so...



On the 28th October, we will be launching a Kickstarter called Exotic Locations - These are all terrain sets designed for use with Tomb of the Serpent.
One of the locations is the museum.

Thanks DowVooVoo

So the museum is proving annoyingly difficult to progress  but on the other hand, two other locations are coming together.

First up is Fotherington Hall



And the Graveyard



Still got some extensions to make for the graveyard to make it 18x18"

As always, what do you think?

Thanks for the kind words all, some more progress has been made this week on the larger terrain items so there should be pics of finished locations this weekend.

I picked some decent (and remarkably cheap) mdf desert style building off an ebay seller this week so that has sped up the population of table space greatly.

(Sellers image not mine)

Once the major bits are done then its on to the Insane mobs, other assorted nasties and random characters from the various scenarios along with bits of themed scatter terrain etc.

Anyone got good (or otherwise Cheesy) suggestions for making sand dunes?

Extruded foam shaped with a hot wire. Apply sand and paint.  It makes great shapes and you can make them as simple or as complicated as you need.

Requires me building (or procuring by other means) a hot wire cutter, but not impossible, thanks.

Yeah, the seller does have some other decent bits, I picked up his warehouse as well so while not on the scale of the Ark of the covenant storage warehouse, it might provide an interesting search and recover scenario.

So a couple of my major locations are finished. (well near enough to game on)
first up the museum



I havent done a front wall as I want to use this as a photo box as well, I may well end up doing a separate frontage but its not needed immediately.

And then we have Fotherington Hall

Here we see some brave explorers just about to discover it isnt as abandoned as it looks!



We can also see why I'm not allowed to choose the wallpaper for our real house Cheesy

And finally for today some WIP rock formations, one of which is very suspiciously shaped, hmmm I wonder if its the plot point?



Apart from the skull which is a polystyrene Halloween decoration these are made from the cheap yellow car sponges glued down ripped up (Oh man what a mess!) and then squidged into a bowl of paint to get an even base coat. once dry (next week by the feel of it) its drybrush time.

Some innovative ideas there.

I would suggest that you give the rock formations a dousing in PVA/wood glue before they dry.
That should harden them up a little and make drybrushing a little easier.
You could also sprinkle some sand on them while the glue is still wet for added texture.

Thanks, cant claim the rocks thing as original unfortunately Sad

Easy? I never do it the easy way  Cheesy but thanks for the suggestion, I may well do it in the end but i'm gonna go with squashy initially, that way: A, they'll compress for storage, B, they can act as padding for more delicate items.
