That looks good!

Thanks for the comps.  Building them gave me a reason to make more rubberized horse hair as I ran out and am too cheap to order some when I have the materials on hand.

Starting another project.  I have always wanted a modular cave system but was torn between making small fully modular sections or larger set tiles.  Both have their pluses and minuses.  I ended up deciding to do 12 inch square set tiles.  It will be modular enough for what I want to do and it will be more practical to store.  Based on foamex walls with bark and spackle texturing.  First one is pretty much done.  Just need to tone down the pottery and skeleton a bit.  Hope you like.

I finished two more sections. 

First has three parallel hallways.  The highlighting is a bit strong but it is usable.

Second has one large chamber and two dead ends.

More broken pots.

A couple of shots with minis for scale.

I was asked on another forum for a how to. Here is a quick an dirty run down of the process. 

Built the basic structure out of foamex and liquid nailed chunks of bark onto the walls and floor.  Filled the voids with foam.  Glued some 3d printed pieces that will end up textured too.

Made a piping bag out of baking paper. Used the bag to put blobs of filler in between the chunks of bark and then used a wet brush to texture the filler.

Once all of the spaces are covered in filler and set I add bits such as permanent details and rubble.

I cannot believe how much amazing stuff is tucked away in this thread.  Playing on your table would be an absolute privilege. 

 

Everything absolutely nails looking real enough to walk into while also being playable.  Here are the ones I've saved for my future shameless theft inspiration...

 

The way the trees clump feels very real.  Going to try to steal this one as soon as I can.

The pottery and statues make the caves feel lived-in in a way I haven't seen before with cave terrain.  I don't know what's going on with all the creepy yellow dolls but suspect the answer is dangerous.

The drying plants add SO much life without taking up much of any playable space.

The creeping vines are spot on.  Ditto for the moss.

The cats, fountainheads and statue elevate a pretty common terrain piece to a one of a kind.

The orb gives me creepy Event Horizon esque vibes.

Thanks for the kind words all.

For the Birch trees I did a toot years ago on the old terragenesis site.  If you google "terragenesis, Snitchythedog, Birch trees" you will still get the site.  When I was in the states the materials were available at Michael's, Hobby Lobby and the like and they only cost 3-5 cents per tree to make.  It will be more now with inflation but it still will not break the bank.

What's wrong with creepy little dolls in front of a shrine?  :rolleyes:

 

Again thanks for the kind words.

Terragenesis….now that’s a name I haven’t heard in a long time.  Tutorial found, you’re definitely going to be seeing them in a future post from me!

The new tiles look good!

 

How many are you planning to make all together?

Thanks for the comps.  I am planning on nine for now but real life has gotten in the way for a bit so we shall wait and see what happens in the next couple of months.
