Here I will paint the inhabitants of the world beneath us. You will find Drow, Myconids, Beholders and all sorts of cave dwelling creatures here. I might also try my hand at some terrain or buildings. Some stuff that awaits painting:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/dwarvenforge/caverns-deep-by-dwarven-forge-handcrafted-game-ter/description If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.DF had this to say and showed the below teaser picsWe're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.Some of the key features: New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)PassagesElevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)Large pieces (4x4 and larger)
So having finally gotten most of my Dwarven Forge and Dungeonstone Dungeons tiles (including the dungeony stuff from the second Kickstarter for Dwarven Forge), I've started in on my Caverns stuff. Like some others, I've split the stuff into two groups - a set of tiles for the Underdark, and a set for more surfacey-type caves. The first part I'm working on is the Underdark stuff. I'm liberally borrowing from Undel's excellent work, but with my own twists on the subject matter. So here are the results so far - these are just proof-of-concept tiles, done primarily to figure out what I was going to do, and how they would/should look - Before doing drybrushing (round 1) ... and after. Now it's time to start calling out details, and such. (I made a set of step-by-step panels for other environs - I'm including them in the spoilers, but be warned, they are Very Large).
I've posted this elsewhere as well, but I know there are alot of dungencrawlers around here who would find this usefull. I Just finished up an article for Chicago Skirmish Wargames on how to use foam rubber to make rocks, crags and caverns. I've tried alot of different methods to make rocks over the past decade or so, but this is by far the fastest method I've discovered and gives some of the most durable results. Hope you all find it usefull! http://chicagoskirmish.blogspot.com/2012/08/terrain-tutorial-caverns-and-rocks-fast.html A few pics to tease....
