Wow, Mark, that is freakin' awsome stuff! thumbsup

I like the inclusion of the Mordheim plastic building bits in your buildings. The graveyard it very, very cool as well. I also like the pavement effect you have on these tiles. Very good stuff and very inspiring.

I started work on a similar project just a couple days ago. I am making 16 inch by 16 inch boards and 16 inch by 8 inch boards. To create a standard 4' by 4' area, I will need nine of the full sized tiles or a combination of full sized and half sized tiles.

The tiles are based on 1/2 in particle board with a 1 inch thick layer of pink insulation board. Buildings and other features will be permanently attached to the tile bases. With a slight additional elevation of 1/2 to 1 inch for some of the buildings, I ought to have enough depth for the occasional cellar/basement under some of the buildings. Right now I am working on cutting the pink insulation board and gluing it to the particle board base. Once I get a few of those done, I'll dig in to some basic ruined buildings and see what I can do.

I have done almost no terrain work over the years, so I really don't know what I am doing, but I figure I'll just jump in and see what I can knock out. I think once I have made some progress and taken some pictures, I'll start a thread on my project.

Not to knock anyone, but I just have to put my two pence in about making building attached to your board:

First off, they are going to be the worst things to try to store... you can't stack them easily, and you can't sneak them under a bed 'cause they are so tall.. you practically have to keep them set up.

Anyway, I compiled my rant in this thread. Take a gander, and roll it around.

Obviously, it's your decision, and you can do whatever you want, but the "anti-base nazi" in me had to share his opinions Wink thumbsup
