Really cool layout, nice use of the pieces!

And I love the old figs. Great painting, that Heritage cleric really pops.

Astolat beat me to it!

WOW - turning dais pieces on their side is COOL!

there is lots of fun stuff in this build but that one was just immediately obvious in a "damn, why didn't i think of that?" way

congrats!

A few more pictures, using Mountain parts, DoD stuff, and a few odd ball pieces ... I'll get Resin chasm and dungeon sets out later and make a bunch more. Going for small footprints for each area ( top of a bridge pier build on the side or back of these natural sone pillars) - below are pools bogs and dark tangles of trees (see picture).

Dias parts work nice as old ruined draw-bridge mechanisms:

Another gap in the bridge. During the parties push through these ruinous heights skeletons will be climbing up continuously on all the "live" stone areas ... until they deal with the Orb that is "awakening" them

Have a quiet weekend, so I got a chance to sketch the "ruined bridge-works" ... Tomorrow I'll try and post some updated builds. Im thinking to try and represent the Bridge Pier tops and that way not have a huge difference in elevations. I may need more stairs .... :?

Heres the sketch ( I like to draw out the encounters first, my group always likes the visuals) :

Trying to go for that Zhangjiajie China look, if you aren't familiar with those stone formations, google nit - they are really cool.

Nice build :)

Standout for us is the Gargoyle detail - nice :)

Looks like Pink Panther has been attacked with a hot wire, knive, then beaten with a rock, smothered in gooey paint and then frozen in Carbonite and no one noticed .....sniff

I want to suggest a craft store and a fabric store like Joanns.

The Lemax water mats are in the Christmas village section. The textured felt squares are $.25.

The riser is a book

Image

This is a queen size bed sheet.

I like the narrow causeway, I would cut one from insulation foam.

Image

I used a hot wire cutter but a bread knife will work.

Image

This texture was created by beating the foam insulation with a brick and adding sand.

Image

Cut the insulation to the shape you want then texture and paint.

Image

Beat it with a rock

Image

Paint with white glue and black

Image

Add sand while the paint is wet. Dry brush when the paint is completely dry.

I really like the lay out. It would be worth it to me to go all out
