    Re: The Enchanted Forest modular

    very nice - it all fits together well and has a really nice vibe to it.

    Just a slight suggestion though, maybe add a little bit of grass to the tree base so that that blends in too (just a nit pick - feel free to ignore me like everyone else )

    Re: The Enchanted Forest modular

    That might do the trick indeed, thanks.

    In any case, here's one more themed picture. The elven scouts are investigating activity at an abandoned dungeon entrance... and find it well-guarded!

    I love your work, it looks so fairytale and twisted.

    Thanks, twchdyn!

    I've been working on a couple more tiles, particularly this bridge, but also quick mud pit and graveyard. Will toss in some more pictures when they're about ready.

    Re: The Enchanted Forest modular

    Very nice, like the detail in stone work, you gonna use water effect or paint for water?

    Re: The Enchanted Forest modular

    As you know, I'm not a fan of commercial solutions, so I was thinking of just painting water over a thin layer of elmer's glue. We'll see how it goes. I'm no expert whatsoever in this area.

    This is just a small bridge, wide enough for two. It's designed so that a GW river troll or similar monster can block it entirely, for a possible encounter.

    Re: The Enchanted Forest modular

    And here is the rather finished bridge. This must be my favorite of the Enchanted Forest tiles so far, even though it is very, very simple. Water is simply the bottom of the river painted blue and covered with a thin layer of Elmer's glue. Obviously no water effects or anything. Originally I was going to blend the water towards a green shade, but was so satisfied with how the blue turned out that I left it like that.

    Re: The Enchanted Forest modular

    Very nice set up Nychthemeron, and just to let you know im no expert either with water effects and stuff like that. The forest is coming alive. will you be making additional river tiles to blend in with the bridge?

  9. #29

    Re: The Enchanted Forest modular

    Additional river tiles? That's a big maybe. The idea is that the characters have to follow the path (otherwise they get lost in the enchanted forest - just like with the lantern rule of WHQ), so making additional river tiles would be somewhat counterproductive, unless, of course, the road would follow the river.

    Then again, a longer river would be visually nice to have around. I was planning to make some forest-without-road tiles anyway just for the looks. I will have to think about it.

    Re: The Enchanted Forest modular

    Nychthemeron I never meant to throw you off your guard, I fully knew what you intended with the board before you even mention the lantern rule as it is what I was intending if I did the forest board but I chose the cavern one instead. Bare with me am not good with graphics so picture the picture(god im crap with words) as a 3x3 tiles that the game has progress that far. The tiles are standard size and the bottom left is a objective size room to make the look of the river going off somewhere off the board, you have stepping stones for a path and a river tile in the middle to complete the look. Its worth considering as it would look good however you do it river or plain forest. Well done so far.

    Re: The Enchanted Forest modular

    That is an interesting sketch and an idea! I could very well go with something like this, as it would only require making 2-3 more river tiles, including the one with stepping stones. I was considering a "more difficult" river passing anyway, and the stepping stones could involve a skill test or the use of a rope.

    Besides, it would give an excuse to do a couple more river tiles, which was pretty fun stuff to do.

    'Besides, it would give an excuse to do a couple more river tiles, which was pretty fun stuff to do'

    That's what its all about at the end of the day, arraagh I'm giving away secrets here, fine a harder crossing I already thought of again for my forest idea which by the way I might still do for my cavern theme but would suit a forest more. its a three tier waterfall (objective size tile) you would need a little height or it could just be a fast stream with rocks at each level which a character could cling to and get off at that path crossing.

    Anyway the idea I had with height was the crossing takes place on the top level. each warrior crosses on a roll of 1 3 or 5 the warrior losses its footing and goes down a level. on a 4 5 or 6 the warrior stops at the lower level if they get 1 2 or 3 fail they fall down another. Ech level is like a T-junction you put D3 dungeon cards next to each level crossing. this brings solo play into the game

    Re: The Enchanted Forest modular

    I gave my trees some base-flocking, like suggested. Here's a little arrangement - a forest trail circling the edge of a cemetery.

    Looking good Nychthemeron, very atmospheric, its all pulling together well. Have you played on it yet?

  16. #36

    Re: The Enchanted Forest modular

    Not yet, although now I have enough pieces to be actually do that. Hopefully get to testing this summer.

    Meanwhile, I got bitten by the Mordheim bug again, and have been busy working with a couple buildings. I intend to make some sort of connection tile - a road leading into the city - to be able to combine the projects.

    Look forward to that Nychthemeron sounds like a smashing idea, love the idea of joining themes/games/settings all together.
    You'll have to do a report to let us know how your play testing goes

    Here's a little combination of this project and the second one in my signature: arrival to the inn! Weary travelers stumble from the wilderness to a roadside inn. Warm, cozy and welcoming, or cold, abandoned and mysterious?

    Re: The Enchanted Forest modular

    It's been a long time from the last update of this project. But I finally made some progress! I made a couple new tiles (3 river pieces and 2 empty forest squaers). I also added a troll for a river encounter. After finishing it, I noticed that the bugger's base is too big to fit to the bridge! Oh well. I suppose the troll can assault its victims next to the bridge as well as on it.

    You may also notice that I flocked - at some point - the bases of the trees as suggested earlier!

    This project should see its playtest soon. I'll try to post some pictures when that happens.
