What’s funny is I’m at relatives and hanging out distracted by kids and just sort of blindly scrolling through everything and I see the build with the multiple levels of the multiple bridges and I’m like “wow that looks like Williams work” I scroll back up - sure enough! I obviously spend too much time here when i can identify builders by thier style

Just adding this picture into this thread, was inspired by Laws elevation builds, and now here looking at Williams multiple Natural Bridges. Its simply the Bridge extension, used upside down as a walk way, or extension to a path:

I posted in another thread - hopes its ok to show them here.
Ha! This literally made me run over to my dwarvenforge and my bridge extension piece to look at the underside. I had no idea. Learn something new every day!

Very nice work William.

The coal look reminds me of North Wales where there are massive Slate mines and the surrounding countryside is completely dominated by massive slate slag heaps and everything is made of slate, including fence posts.

In sunshine it all look grey and when it's raining it all looks dark grey.

Cool stuff everyone... 8-) ... 8-) ... 8-) .
I really like the paint job on these, but here are a few oddball layouts from the mix of unpainted KS6 I ordered.
There are 2.5 Stairways to Violence to answer that first off... ;)

Vile Mushroom separation on large cluster went well. Just a minor rip.

And here are my ideas on tree trunks.
I used two small Trunk Toppers for the medium height small trunk and still need to greenstuff the two short small and large trunks with hole in the tops.

Totally know what you're all saying. The edges of terrain trays sticking out does bother me a bit too. Felt or construction paper might work well, but I wonder if something more flexible would be more... flexible. Ha.

What I mean is more like a black cotton bedsheet than thick felt. You could have more generic shapes that could be tucked in around corners a bit to cover gaps, rather than having to custom cut something for each and every shape you create. It also might be light enough to tuck under terrain with magnets on elevated terrain trays to form a curtain and cover up that dead space. May experiment a bit with this. I'll post photos when I get to it. First, more painting! So much painting.

It is funny what irritates us a little with dungeons and caverns builds are the walls/boundary for an aesthetic point of view. They are functional for game play which is what they are designed for, but you can easily see outside the confines of the dungeon and cavern.

The same can be applied for over ground, it can be only as big as your table, but you have more room and for us and so allows for more immersion. Obviously means greater coverage is required for our terrain.

We have backing boards we need to sort out to cut out the background clutter from our pictures.

It is not a game breaker but we enjoy the cinematic experience which is why we go for DF terrain :) its just easily disrupted with Dungeons and caverns, so it does not matter if it is a terrain tray or the tabletop or a battlemap.
:shock: Congratulations, now you fiery lot of hellbunnies are making me think of a table covered in a mat representing the "interior of the earth" to put dungeons and caverns on. And that means skeletons, dragon bones (ovni's?), purple worms burrowing, crystals, and crazy things sunken in the earth between the dungeon rooms and passages...

Gods, was I not crazy enough yet?
I actually went that route for my first battle mat and think I found a pretty good options:

I got this in the double-sided version, with grass on the other side to use with Dreadhollow, etc.
