The Dungeon of Sagra-Bayar
« on: June 13, 2018, 01:27:27 PM »
The modular dungeon, that is.

Completed the latest round of glass work this weekend and allowed the hobby to take over one of my shop tables for a couple days. Now this idea had been bouncing around my head for a while: 3D dungeon tiles using faux-stone vinyl tiles. Seemed like a fast and simple way to get a sturdy, stone floor. Add a hunk of 1″ insulation foam, some cheap craft paint, a couple paint pens, lots of elbow grease scoring the stone work, and glue.

The result is three 12″x 12″ rooms, six 6″ x 12″ corridors, and eight 6″ x 6″ rooms.





I know thereís lots of detailing yet to be done. Iím going to scour my bits box and the internet for details and banners, and I suspect Iíll want to pick up a couple sets of 28mm scenics and furniture, but I think this is a good start. So far, the project cost less than $50.

More pictures coming as I progress. Iím looking forward to our next dungeon crawl even more now.

Have a great day.

Steal away. That's what the internet is for.

I did the same for a modular mine, and they came out pretty nice.
What did you use to glue the foam down? 
After some trying, I found Liquid Nails to give me the best result.

Did you have a plan for the "optimal" piece types and numbers, or did you just kind of wing it?

I used Weldbond. Sort of Elmers on steroids. It's holding together so far.

Winged it - Which is why I made three additional passageway end-caps today.
