I second the foam blocks from Dice4hire. I have 25 and while I haven’t use them all at once, they are perfect for DF builds. I can easily envision a build where I use them all, I just have to find the time to do it.

I unfortunately don't need the qty needed for an order with him. Only want 10. 25 is far more than I need or want to spend or I would surely order from him. Alternatiives?
mc1gamer, I have more of the blocks than I need, I'd be happy to send you 10. DM me your address and I'll send them on for the cost of shipping.

With the price of that Gator board I still think your better off buying dice4hire's Japanese foam blocks. You could sell what you don't want/need on ebay or keep them you never know when your going to want to make that big build then your will wish you had them.

I think maybe you are looking for Gatorfoam boards. It's what I use.
https://www.foamboardsource.com/gatorfo ... rfoam.html

It comes in black, 2" thick. It is very sturdy, stable and light weight. Sizes are up to you, I try to stick with boards that are in multiples of 2 inches in length and width. Having a variety fro 8x10 to 18x24 works best for seperate uses. You can buy in packs of 5 or 3 or whatever.

Hope this helps.

I don't know what are those gorilla foam pieces you are talking about but I can't tell enough good things about dice4hire's Japanese foam blocks.

Anyone get the gator foam that some have used for elevation? Where? What size?

Thanks
