You can buy the 2" pink or blue insulation from Home Depot and/or Lowes. I use it to make modular terrain in 24x24 or 24x48" boards. It is easy to cut with a fine tooth bandsaw if you want perfection (and a mess to clean up), or a razer blade and long ruler if you are ok with slight imperfections.

I bought Gator Foam from the same Foam Board Source

I use mostly 2" thick black boards.

Occasionally I use 1.5" then stack tiles on top of that to get really close to 2" high.

The new 8x8 floors with CBS corner posts underneath, will get you to 2" for cheaper I think. But they're not as easy to move around as a big Gator Foam board.

I bought 2" thick black gatorfoam in convenient, pre-cut 8"x12" chunks here:

They are great, and arrived in good condition!

This is one place I've seen listed before, been contemplating ordering some but the shipping is killing it for me.

and (3) Why isn't Dwarven Forge working out a deal with to sell Gator Foam directly themselves?

I'm only half kidding.

Gator Foam

Post by Sorn » Mon Apr 18, 2016 12:31 am

In the Kickstarter (and in the latest video titled "Walkthrough Mountains & Caverns," Nate uses black gator foam to help him build-up the diorama. I was hoping Nate or any one of you other kind folks might let me know: (1) where you can buy the gator foam; and (2) the dimensions that need to be used/specified to properly make them work with the DF stuff. Thanks for help!
