Hey everyone, Id like to post some of my terrain I have been working on. For the buildings I have 'borrowed' a technique from the INCREDIBLE "Dunbrough and Grippenheim" guy. Since its a pretty small board (2x2) I wanted to build up, I just don't know how I am going to do that yet.  Id really like to hear some of your ideas and feedback.

Fantastic start! My suggestion to you is to cover the two back sides, or just one, with "fronts" so you get sort of diorama feel, make one more complete building, some small accessories (well, walls, posts) and you are done. That way you will have plenty of space to play and your table\board will look full.
Here is what I'm talking about:

That looks awesome, I like how it's going. Lots of junk on the outside is a great detail. I kind of like to try out locations, within locations. The front porch, or around a well, somewhere that the townsfolk would gather.

EXCELLENT START! Theomar's influence is evident in your LOVELY little building & the SPLENDID stonework...if you are going to copy anyone, theomar is The Man. The foreshortened buildings are a fine idea. The ones on Chris' aka cianty's beautiful table are solid; if you are making your own you couls ope the area to make interior details...it would add to their use in gaming. Something like this one from my Urban Bight Board:

At any rate, keep up the OUTSTANDING WORK!   thumbsup

@Vegabond, That's a stellar idea, I'm going to try that. I think I could actually slice up some 'fronts' pretty quickly too. Also, one of my plans was to do up the sides of the board with stone wall texture, that I may use the entire 2x2 as a platform for a larger table in the future.

@Theomar, A location within a location, excellent. Hey thanks for the inspiration man, your technique is going to be well appreciated by the gaming group, when the board is done and ready for play Very Happy Very cool.

@DeafNala, Also great advice. A building like the one you posted would go perfect smack dab in the middle of the map.

wow thanks for the advice everyone. So convenient to get opinions like that. Ill post pictures as soon as I make some more progress Very Happy

The House lived up to its potential in FINE FASHION...a very attractive choice of colors. I love the way the window turned out. GREAT WORK!   thumbsup
