Lair of the Rat King

Construction ended on the sewers beneath Cornerstone Keep.  The last step is a thick spray of dull coat to protect the work.  Otherwise, these tiles are ready for the minions of the Rat King and the adventurers to slay them.  As promised, I'll spare you the details on the sewage and dirt; suffice it to say, I started dark and brushed my way lighter until it hit the desired shade.

The maze in one of its many permutations.

Close-up of some of the detail.

Movable bridges.
Those little bridges are made out of bamboo kabob skewers.  Cut to 15mm lengths and superglued together, they look just like rough logs at this scale.  They even work well with the outdoor tiles that are in progress, too.

I'm really looking forward to getting  those figures in the mail.  I feel like Ralphie waiting for his Little Orphan Annie decoder ring, only better - I know my figures aren't just an advertisement.

  1. Your terrain boards look great!

    For my D&D sessions using my 10mm fantasy minis, I just sprayed the back of a cookie sheet white, drew a 1/2" grid on it (I tried a 1 cm grid first but it helps to have the squares a bit larger than the bases on the minis), and sprayed a clear lacquer on to seal it.

    When we play, I draw the rooms in using dry erase markers. Functional, but so very sad in comparison to 3D terrain. Someday I'll have to come up with something better. (Maybe after a few more of my bare metal minis are painted up...)
