Now accepting suggestions for a better name.


Attempted to make two playing spaces of terrain in two nights for an Infinity tournament at my FLGS. While its not finished by any means I thought I'd share some pictures.

To avoid a mile long post, you can find a blow by blow over at my blog.


Company I work for sells valves for water distribution. They come anywhere from smaller than 1" to larger than 48". A recent batch came in with 1/8" Masonite for protective covers.

Made some bridges with notches in them so they would secure to the platforms.

Had some heavy duty cardboard tubes laying around so I made legs to give the appearance of floating/high elevation.

How I envisioned a partial layout.

This is what happens when you hand over terrain without instructions.

Oh well, they had fun. I hadn't started painting it so no harm done.

Right now my plan is to do the underside and legs Chrome. The surface is textured so it will get grey with black wash. I may do some details but my free hand isn't very good.

      3d terrain elevation risers, made to work with Dwarven Forge and other systems like it.
      Looks really interesting and very dynamic on a table.  Good for hold up flying minis too.

      I'm generally bad at terrain. So I decided to challenge myself. I painted the obelisk as a dark stone and the octopus on top as a green stone with cabochon eyes. I even went fancy and attempted to put some red glow/liquidity to the runes on the obelisk.

      I... don't remember painting those eyes like they're glowing... Wait, is that the camera's fault? Did... Um...  It... appears my cell phone camera had a hard time focusing on such immense evil...  Yes, that must be it.
      Here's a better pic of the runes.

      Yes, there we go. As soon as those eyes aren't looking at the camera it focuses just fine

      Well, awhile ago I started making some terrain for my Frostgrave Dark Alchemy solo mini campaign.  Longish story....Then squirrels happened.  I then decided not to wait to finish my terrain, and just go with what I had made and not painted.  I'll nether confirm nor deny that I also used Lincoln Logs to make wall to fill out that first board (and there are no picture left to prove it). That round went well.  I then managed to finish up building the hirst arts wizard tower in a ruined form.  Next round went way worse... TPK.  You take 4 character and your wizard or apprentice.  They all got taken out by a series of bad dice rolls.  The bad dice roll continued and I failed all my survival rolls for the characters in that mission.  Well I decided I really wanted to finish this piece so here is a thread showing the before painting it.
      Here is some shots of built with my now deceased WIzard, who is roughly the same size as Sir Forscale.

      This started out as a variant of the gothic chapel, but sometime before completion it got dropped and broken.  Possibly more than once, as there is a 2nd long wall that does not fit this model.  Anyway, a couple weekends ago I found the box, glued parts back together and gave the paint a touch-up.  Added some moss, vines, and grass to the base to spruce it up a bit.  I gave it to my husband to use as a photo backdrop. 


      The figures are some my husband painted.
