Thanks for all the positive responses.

The ROTA sets from Dwarven Forge are gorgeous, and are “generic” enough in styling to be used in a variety of settings. This layout uses the most part of 6 sets.

Table size is 4’x6’

Mat is from Cigar Box Battle

Raw material for the vines:




Still need some development on these. I want to use a thin wire frame (think inverted square U) shaped to drape over both sides of a wall, with vines hotglued along the frame. Much more stable than just throwing them together with a few twists or a knot, which is what I’ve done here since I was short on prep time.

Three more leagues:

Skip’s Crew




B.L.E. Reedy’s Rough Rifles




The Incorrigibles

Simply stunning. I would love to game on that table and use those figures. I hope you all have a great time.

I recently purchased a huge dungeon series on kickstarter for delivery this coming late summer. Your table turning it into ruins is simply brilliant and gives me ideas to borrow your idea for my games so thank you for sharing. May the dice guards roll well for  all of you.

Looks fantastic. I've recently been working on something similar for a game of Congo (using terrain from Adrian's Walls). I made removable hanging vines using wire twisted together with bent ends. The wire can be made in sections and different pieces hung together to get the effect you are after. I glued dried florist moss onto the wire to create the jungle vine appearance. Fiddly to twist the wire, but the overall appearance works.

The original tip came from somebody else's Facebook post. Here's a link:

That is one top table! Your jungle vegetation is particularly effective.

Our first round of games yesterday. Two areas, thee leagues each, playing the Lost Keys scenario. One major plot point and 7-8 minor plot points per area. The plot points all have either creature(s) or follower level figures that will appear once a plot point completion attempt is made. The quantity and location (d6 inches on a scatter die) are randomly determined.


Digger’s Gang attempt their first minor plot point.




And their second.




The puma appears to defend against the Hole in the Hat gang.




Terror birds defend their nest (minor plot point) against the Hole in the Hat Gang.




The Giant Salamander sneaks up on Big Z (of the Incorrigbles) from behind, engages him for several turns, and eventually knocks him down, with the loss of the plot point.

At the top of the photo are most of the Incorrigibles gang, down from failing their respective plot point challenges. This was pretty much the state of affairs through most of the game.




The puma in contact. This animal would prove to be an elusive combatant, basically tying down the Hole in the Hat gang for most of the game.




Masked pygmies appear




The pygmy archers fire at the Rough Rifles




Les Masques Rouge are swarmed by stone guardians and natives




Closing in on the Winged Idol (main plot point). The Rough Rifles and Les Masques Rouge fight for control of the idol. Over the first several turns they mercilessly pummeled Skip’s Crew, which was sandwiched between. Skip was out by the end of turn 3.




Another view showing the aggressive advance of Les Masques Rouge




The masked pygmies advance into contact against Digger Bones and Sam Palamino, his sidekick.




After dealing with the two terror birds, members of the Hole in the Hat gang rush to reinforce their mates. Only then is the puma finally vanquished.



To be continued...
