VERY COOL STUFF, cianty! Even in its WIP state this is the BEST "Dungeon" terrain I've seen. It's VERY evocative AND there's something rather chilling in a primeal sortt of way about underground exploration. I wait in anticipation for your progress [remember I'm OLD & don't have much time left for "waiting" Suspect ].

Tunnel tiles completed

Here are a first few impressions of the completed dungeon/mine/tunnel tiles I made for the great Horrors of the Underground scenario. I'll post more pics of the entire set-up later.


Somewhere in the Cathayan borderlands is the entrance to the forbidden mines of Shang-Yang...




Lead by sinister visions of the tribe's shaman a chieftain and his retinue enter the caverns in search for one of the four fabled Chaos artefacts...




In the meantime a group of battle monks is already exploring the dark tunnels, encountering one of the countless horrors of the underground...

Awesome mine Cianty!
I just love those gaming tiles. Particularily remarkable for me: the eveness of the stoney-grey drybrushing. 100% professional. thumbsup

How many tiles are you planning to make?

Thank you, guys! Thanks a lot!

Well, I bought ten wooden tiles at the DIY store. Six are finished and four are WIP. Considering the initial set-up which requires four tiles (entrance, tunnel, junction and crossroads) this leaves me six "normal" tiles during the game. This is less than what you should have at hand but it might be enough for some games. I might resort to the paper templates when I run out of them. However, I'm really enjoying making these now (after I had to kick myself in the butt for quite some time before I finally started to seriously work on them). So I think I might make some more because they are rather easy to make yet very rewarding when you build up the huge tunnels.. Plus I am thinking about extending this scenario into an entire mini game...

Oh, one more thing: I forgot to thank you, Tom, in my initial post. Your work on the giant spider riding goblin was an invaluable help when painting the spiders as otherwise I would have had no clue how to paint them. Your paint job was a great inspiration for me!
I also need to thank the sculptor of the models for modelling these ridiculously unrealistic skulls on their bodies as otherwise I might have freaked out during painting (cuz I hate spiders!). Smile


Now to make this post worthwhile, here some more eye candy:

A tunnel crash hinders further exploration of the mines.






A rather simple piece that I made yesterday but I think it's very effective. This marker denotes a crashed tunnel where the warbands have to remove the boulders before they can go on.

Not ONLY is this an EXCELLENT piece of work, but it opens up SO MANY gaming possibilities. When first I checked out your latest bit of modeling marvel, visions of the tunnels entering natural caverns, underground cities, storehouse of arcania, whirling melees between Goblins & Dwarves flashed through my crazed old mind. It's REALLY COOL making things that provide inspiration of THAT magnitude. WELL DONE, mein Freund! thumbsup

VERY COOL! All the ideas for various & sundry projects that you have inspired ARE going to require AT LEAST another lifetime to complete. I'll have to have a word with THE MAN [& the folks at Social Security Suspect ] about an extension.
VERY WELL DONE, AND OH THE POSSIBILITIES! thumbsup

Cianty, your scenery is probably more inspiring (for BTB of course) than any minis showed on this forum...
I wish I could do it like you do bounce

I have no idea how I miss some of these posts but the tunnels are awesome.

This is the proper way to do a tunnel.

I am guessing you used insulation foam (blue or pink color)?

How did you carve out the sides?

Sorry, I missed your explanation but scrolling through I didn't catch it.
