I love the conversions & terrain.

What you've done with foamboard & a brush looks fantastic!

The map tiles are all mounted on foam core? Those look pretty slick.

I feel you on the storage aspects of terrain. I've dropped to half height walls when rebooting my terrain collections because of storage issues. I don't know if I'll ever go full 2-d, but those tiles certainly give me pause to consider it!

Thanks fluff and cooky

Yes all foam board brought from hobbycraft four a4's for a tenner.

Pva'ed them down but when I cut them out I had the horrible white foam inners showing all the way round.
Could have painted them but it is long winded tedious and not very accurate.

One brainwave later.
Reprinted one of the larger rooms and cut the whole sheet into 5mm strips then prit sticked them all the way round.
Even without pattern matching it still looks good.
Cheers all

Oh, yeah, I actually thought that the map had built in fold over tabs for that purpose. Even better if you just printed and glued on the edges. I would have bet money they came that way at first glance.

Thought I'd posted some more pics of them but can't seem to pin them down. So I'll repost them for you here.
Cheers all

Great looking game. The terrain and figures look ace.

That does look really great, I might have to get some boards like that.
