Wow it's been a long time since I've updated. I started school 8 months ago and have had very little time for the hobby. This town square was inspired by stuff I've seen here. It's my first time working with pink foam. I used a pend to scribe/press the brick pattern and did a simple drybrush paintjob. I plan to put it on a base for strength and protection but it will probably be flat with the edges. If I had the time I would love to make like 10 of these to cover the table with small alleyways and streets. The little cove's also make a great entryway to underground sewers on an adjacent tunnel...someday.

Some things I learned about working with pink foam: be careful with excess glue. Some parts had glue that spilled over and made it impossible to scribe details since the glue dries hard as plastic. Keep a sharp knife. A dull knife will tear instead of cut, there are a few spots where this happened since I am too lazy to do this. Thinner width is probably easier to work with. This is all I could get a hold of (3/4") so I had to use it but it was very hard to get a straight cut since I had to flip it to finish the cut from the other side.

Enjoy some pics. It has already been infected by my skaven, The Mystery Men. The "M" design is the little tiny logo off the back of the book. It measures roughly 9" square for the top and 3" high:

TERRIFIC LOOKING PIECE! I LOVE the stone pattern on top...do you think you could do an overhead shot for a better view? VERY WELL DONE!

I started making the next one already, it's got a mosaic of the twin tailed comet. I would love to have at least 4. It would make a great addition to the table to have the 4 lifted squares in the center of a table with alleyways in between.

I love all of your scenery here and on your blog. I've seen some pics of your cobblestone board as a work in progress. Do you have any detailed shots of it now that it is complete?
