Chris's Frostgrave & Ghost Archipelago Terrain Efforts

Very nice work! Where are you finding the thick and sturdy cork sheets/tiles? I've tried to find them in California but to no avail - everyone just seems to stock the thin bendy cork sheets, whether at the DIY stores like Home Depot or the craft stores like Hobby Lobby/Michaels. I even tried Staples but no dice.

I got mine at my local. A.C.Moore. My local Michaels has it too. If you search Amazon for "dark cork tile" you will find a number of brands to choose from.

Aha! Never heard of "dark cork" before, but that did indeed bring up some results on Amazon. Thank you, will order some to try it out right now :)

I finished up the waterfront project this weekend while I was holed up during the blizzard.  Even though I had to cancel the game I had scheduled for Sunday due to the weather, I used the free time to set everything up and take some photos.

    I'm very pleased with the results.  I'm already thinking of adding a couple more sections, so I have the option to use it o larger 6' wide tables without it looking puny.  I think I might do a ruined warehouse section, and a couple shorter staircase access sections.

   I'm not sure if I'm going to work n those immediately, or take a break and work on some more regular building ruins.

That looks SPLENDIDVERY COLD. With just a bit more clutter, you'll have an OUTSTANDING LOOKING gaming board.

Thanks!

Yes, I have the clutter; but for taking the pictures I was lazy and didn't unpack everything.  ::P:

Wow.  Super-cool stuff here (he types and then realizes what a bad cold-based pun that was for a Frostgrave scenario...however, bad puns are my favorite kind, so I leave it as my gift to you).

Just seeing the ship on its own, I wasn't sure how you'd incorporate it in any sort of logical way, but it looks outstanding by your excellent pier.  Nice work indeed!

 I had this old shrubbery root sitting around the workshop for a long time. And while I always knew I wanted to make some sort of tree out of it, I was never sure exactly how I wanted to put it to use.  Then I recently had the idea to use it a a piece of Frostgrave terrain, inspired by the Tree of the King that grew in Minas Tirith from the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

     It didn't take long to glue it to a base, build up a little mound around it, and add some gravel, to complete the project.

 

   I can see running a scenario where the tree is the Frostgrave Tree of Magical Wisdom, with a single bloom growing at the very top (sprouted now that the city has started to thaw); and which ever wizard can get the flower gets an extra roll on the treasure tables.

I don't think I'll add any winter effects to it so I can still use it in other games.

      About this project
      The Story
      Hello again from Munchkin Metropolis!  This time around I'm targeting all of you Roleplay Gamers!  With my DIY Dungeon Kit you can now take your game nights to a whole new level.  Being able to customize your dungeons into the format you want makes being a game master so much more fun!  Below you'll see the Base Set that includes the 4 most popular sets, plus the Stretch Goal Furniture Set.  The miniatures pictured are not included in your reward (I just wanted to show how I personally utilize this setup)...Other than that, the picture is exactly what you'll receive. 
      Too Much Information
      I've recently been to the Doc and have been placed on a very strict diet and workout regimen (Working out isn't that strict, it's just 30min of light cardio daily).  But he told me not to do anything overly physical, which for a woodworker means I can't really work.  So, to save my heart and keep my business afloat, I've chosen a campaign that utilizes the laser for 80% of the work...with the remaining 20% being light physical duty.
      Due to the sheer weight of these items, I've worked to minimize the cost on materials and labor as much as possible.   The base set weighs almost 15lb and will ship in a 12x12x6 corrugated box.  Making each set is 8 hours of laser time and about 2 hours physical labor (Which is why I set the delivery date 2 months out instead of 1...but for you early backers, expect me to start shipping rewards within a week of the campaign ending.)  Mostly, I wanted to GUARANTEE delivery before Christmas.  By setting it to October, I will have plenty of time to handle anything that comes up. 
      The base set already includes the 4 most popular Expansions and will make an AWESOME Christmas Gift!  
      The floor pieces are designed so that you can expand into infinity to make those LARGE scale battle zones.  
      You'll choose either 1 or 2 inch per expansion. Each Wall Expansion is designed to be as versatile as your campaign!  
      A Base Set ready to ship (The Furniture Set is in the bag)

      This is ending in 50 hours... Haven't seen it posted. There's a thread from 2015 for other tiles. I'm intrigued by the digital option.
