I’ve been spending a lot of time watching Terrain building on Youtube, and Black Magic Craft has some bad ass videos!
Following one of his earlier video’s I set out to make myself some realistic foam Dungeon Tiles :
I decided to go all in and grabbed myself a Proxxon 37080 Hot Wire Cutter . This table makes cutting the base foam, and the 1x1 grid lines a breeze:
After all those cuts I went to texturing using a rolled up ball of Aluminum foil, this step really adds a ton of character to the piece:
Just like Jeremy suggest I coat every piece in black acrylic paint & Mod Podge,
the protection and extra weight is really nice:
A couple hours of painting later I had myself a set of Dungeon Tiles , all that was left was to setup a dungeon and place some 3D prints to see if my hard work paid off:
At this point I was hyped I set out on print some more scatter terrain. Thingiverse is a great resource, and I’ve really enjoyed Curufin’s (Ryan Beasecker) 28mm models.
I do all my 3D printing on an entry level FlashForge Finder , this tend to work great for my use cases.
